Drawing on new interviews and over 100 never-before-seen images from forgotten archives at the Mirror, Liverpool Post and Echo, famous Reds fan Peter Hooton tells the story of Anfield's legendary Boot Room Boys, the teams they built and the Club they took to the top. Picture this- Saturday afternoons at Anfield, orange match balls, passionate terraces, a sea of red and Liverpool FC rules the world. The Boot Room story starts in 1959 when Bill Shankly arrived and converted a 12 x 12 storage room into a meeting place for him and his coaches, a move that had momentous consequences, both for the Club and British football. Fans on the Kop will remember the heart-stopping extra time of the 1965 FA Cup Final, and the jubilation of winning the treble in 1984. But what was the common thread during Liverpool's glory years? It was the Boot Room. Lifelong Liverpool supporter and editor of legendary fanzine The End, Peter Hooton takes us back into that old storage room, where first Shankly, then in succession Paisley, Fagan and Dalglish drank tea, analysed, strategised, selected and deselected, and built the most successful British club in Europe in the 20th Century. Illustrated throughout with over 100 powerful never-before-seen images from the Mirror's forgotten archives, The Boot Room Boys captures the story, as it unfolded, of Liverpool's conquering heroes.
