Red Revival: Rafa Benitez’s Liverpool Revolution
Bogen er på engelsk
Red Revival picks up where the critically-acclaimed ‘Golden Past, Red Future’ left off, examining how Liverpool FC built upon its unexpected and emotionally overwhelming Champions League success, both domestically and in Europe.
Red Revival looks at the overall development and progress of Liverpool FC since Rafael Benítez’s arrival, with the main focus on the progress shown during the 2005/06 season.
The book also examines: the ‘team behind the team’, and the formulation of strategies and tactics; the new arrivals, including Reina, Crouch, Sissoko, Agger and Kromkamp, as well as the whole raft of scouted young starlets, plus the transfer targets that got away; the continuing investment issue, and if securing a cash injection is an essential part of toppling Chelsea; the kids making an impact on the way to the FA Youth Cup success, as well as the run to the final of the FA Cup ‘proper’; the unexpected return of local hero, Robbie Fowler, and the continuing Gerrard and Owen sagas in the summer of 2005; key games in the league, Europe, the FA Cup and World Club Championship; the team’s overall effectiveness, with a detailed statistical breakdown of all areas of the Reds’ play.
In short, all the successes and failures of the current season on top of an overview of Benítez’s contribution since arriving from Spain.
