Ee-Aye-Addio We’ve Won the Cup!
On Saturday, 1st May 1965, Liverpool FC were crowned as the FA Cup winners. Victory over Leeds United in an enthralling Wembley Final gave the Anfield club the FA Cup for the first time in their history, having been beaten in two previous finals in 1914 and 1950.
Football historian and statistician, and lifelong Liverpool fan, Brian Pead, has amassed the complete record of Liverpool in the FA Cup from their days in the Lancashire League in 1892 – 93 right up to the present day.
The result is the most comprehensive and fascinating account of Liverpool Football Club’s long history in the FA Cup with the results, dates, teams, scorers, attendances, and referees of every FA Cup game.
There is a match report for every game which is set in the period in which it was played. Players of yesteryear come alive again as they struggle to get into the final.
The author has teamed up with an artist of rare talent, who has studied photographs of players throughout the years and produced realistic and life-like drawings of many Liverpool and opposition players from 1892 onwards. The drawings add to the historical emphasis of the book and provide a unique addition to a unique account of Liverpool’s cup games.
“Ee Aye Addio” -the Liverpool chant – is a must for Liverpool fans and football fans everywhere.
