This official Liverpool FC publication celebrates 50 of the greatest goals witnessed in the Reds' fantastic history Ian Rush, Roger Hunt, Billy Liddell, Michael Owen, Robbie Fowler, Steven Gerrard, John Barnes, Fernando Torres, Luis Suarez, Kevin Keegan. . . the list goes on. Liverpool Football Club has been blessed with some truly great players during its 120-year history, all of whom have scored some fabulous goals. The 50 greatest goals witnessed at Anfield, and beyond, have been selected from throughout the Club's history. Few clubs in the world can match Liverpool FC's record of 18 League Championships, seven FA Cups, eight Football League Cups, three UEFA Cups, and five prestigious European Cups, plus the UEFA Super Cup and many FA Charity/Community Shields. The goals have been arranged chronologically so the reader can rate his or her own favorites. Each entry features a description of the goal, both in terms of the build up play, the wider context of the match, and its place in history. And every entry features at least one photograph of the goal in question, which will bring back great memories for those who were there and bring the goal vividly to life for those who weren't. Among the 50 chosen goals are superb team goals, such as Kevin Keegan's in the 1974 FA Cup final against Newcastle United, dynamic breakaway goals like Terry McDermott's header against Tottenham Hotspur in 1978 (rated by Bob Paisley, at the time, as probably the best in Liverpool's history), fabulous strikes such as Steven Gerrard's against Manchester United in 2001, and wonderful solo efforts like John Barnes' against Queens Park Rangers in 1987 and Steve McManaman's against Celtic in 1997. There are even a few goals from Liverpool's earlier history, such as the first of the 215 goals Billy Liddell scored for the Reds (against Chester in January 1946), and the debut goal of one of Liverpool's most prolific goal scorers, Roger Hunt (against Scunthorpe United in September 1959).

This official guide to Arsenal, endorsed by the soccer club itself, examine's the team's 50 greatest goals Arsenal Football Club has enjoyed a storied history at the top table of English soccer since its founding in 1886. In fact, the Gunners remain the only club never to have been relegated from the premier division. In that time they have picked up 13 League Championships, 11 FA Cups (including three prestigious Doubles), and two European titles--scoring a wealth of goals in the process. This book, produced with full endorsement from Arsenal FC, celebrates the 50 greatest goals in the club's history. The perception of a goal's greatness is of course subjective. Is a simple tap-in that is nevertheless a culmination of 30 passes a better, or worse, goal than a 30-yard screamer? Everyone has their favorites, and this book merely presents 50 of the best, in chronological order; you can then have fun rating your own personal top 10. Many of the goals included are from the 1970s onwards when the widespread availability of color television and increased airtime for the nation's number one sport brought goals to the forefront of soccer fans' attention. But the book still offers more than a nod to the black and white era: which true Gunners' fan wouldn't rate the goal scored by George Jobey on September 6th, 1913, a header on the stroke of half-time, as great? it was the first goal scored at Arsenal's new home, Highbury (setting Woolwich Arsenal on the way to a 2-1 victory over Leicester Fosse). Since then, of course, there have been many more wonderful and significant goals, from Charlie George's 20-yard strike to win the 1971 FA Cup final, to Dennis Bergkamp's deft turn and shot against Newcastle United in 2002. And not forgetting the drama of Michael Thomas' last-gasp League-winning flick against Liverpool at Anfield in 1989. All the great strikes in Gunners history are presented here for your enjoyment. So sit back and relish the official guide to Arsenal's greatest goals.

In Red Men, a unique and exhaustively researched history of Liverpool Football Club, John Williams explores the origins and divisive politics of football in the city of Liverpool, and profiles the key men behind the emergence of the club and its early successes. The first great Liverpool manager, Tom Watson, piloted the club to its first league championships in 1901 and 1906 before taking the club to the FA Cup final in 1914. Watson and the key members of those early Liverpool teams are analysed in depth, as is the role of the club and its fans in the city as Merseyside balanced self-improvement and cosmopolitanism with almost unimaginable problems of poverty. Liverpool secured consecutive league titles in 1922 and 1923 with the incomparable goalkeeper Elisha Scott as its totemic star and the darling of the Kop. In the '20s, Liverpool was also the first British club to internationalise its playing staff. The club's next league title came in 1947, but, in the bleak '50s, the Liverpool board ruled with an iron fist and controlled the purse strings - until Bill Shankly arrived and won that elusive first FA Cup in 1965. The recent tragedies that have shaped the club's contemporary identity are also covered here, as are the new Continental influences at Liverpool and, of course, the glory of Istanbul in 2005. Red Men is the definitive history of a remarkable football club from its formation in 1892 to the present day, told in the wider context of the social and cultural development of the city of Liverpool and its people.

In Men in White Suits, Simon Hughes meets some of the most colourful characters to have played for Liverpool Football Club during the 1990s. The resulting interviews, set against the historical backdrop of both the club and the city, deliver a rich portrait of life at Anfield during a decade when on-field frustrations were symptomatic of off-the-field mismanagement and ill-discipline. After the shock resignation of Dalglish and Graeme Souness's ill-fated reign, the Reds – under the stewardship of Roy Evans – displayed a breathtaking style led by a supremely talented young group of British players whose names featured as regularly on the front pages of the tabloids as they did on the back. The Daily Mail was the first newspaper to tag Evans’s team as the Spice Boys. Yet despite their flaws, this was a rare group of individuals: mavericks, playboys, goal-scorers and luckless defenders. Wearing off-white Armani suits, their confident personalities were exemplified in their pre-match walk around Wembley before the 1996 FA Cup final (a 1-0 defeat to Manchester United). In stark contrast to the media-coached, on-message interviews given by today’s top stars, the blunt, ribald and sometimes cutting recollections of the footballers featured in Men in White Suits provide a rare insight into this fascinating era in Liverpool’s long and illustrious history.

The Pleasure Principle

From the ancient Olympic games to the savage gladiatorial contests of the Roman Empire, from the thrill of the World Cup to the hype of the Super Bowl, sport represents a singular source of social belonging and communal enjoyment--sometimes as intense as religious faith. The Pleasure Principle addresses the issue of sport as a form of pleasure, contending that sport, like any form of popular culture, reveals a lot about the society in which it appears. Examining sports through various theoretical lenses, including Marxist, feminist, and poststructuralist, and from numerous disciplinary viewpoints--history, sociology, cinema studies, literature, and cultural studies--this special issue demonstrates the complexity of contemporary sports culture. Ranging from the humorous to the ironic, from the personal to the theoretical, and from sports as dissimilar as baseball and rugby, gambling and karate, this issue explains fandom itself and explores the intersections of sport and politics, sport and class, and sport and identity. One timely essay addresses the use of Native American imagery and nicknames and the recent NCAA ban on these references. Another classifies gambling as a popular American sport, one that in 2003 attracted three times as many attendees as all Major League Baseball franchises combined. Another essay delves into the history of the golfing mecca of Pinehurst, North Carolina, discussing the resort's roots in the age of Jim Crow. Among the other topics addressed in this issue are how soccer fandom and commodity culture can be one and the same; why Liverpool's 2005 victory in the European Champion's League proves that God is red; and why the Olympic Games can represent performative nationalism.
