A stellar selection of former Liverpool players including John Barnes, Nigel Spackman, and Ronnie Moran candidly recollect their memories of the club's eventful 1980s era During the 1980s, Liverpool Football Club dominated English soccer, winning seven league titles, two European Cups, two FA Cups, and four League Cups. Here, Simon Hughes interviews some of the most colorful characters to have played for the club during that period. The resulting interviews, set against the historical backdrop of both the club and the city, provide a vivid portrait of life at Liverpool during an era when the club's unparalleled on-pitch success often went hand in hand with a boozy social scene fraught with rows, fights, and wind-ups. Former Liverpool players John Barnes, Bruce Grobbelaar, Howard Gayle, Michael Robinson, John Wark, Kevin Sheedy, Nigel Spackman, Steve Staunton, David Hodgson, and Craig Johnston, as well as first-team coach Ronnie Moran, all candidly recollect their memories of this exciting time in Liverpool Football Club's history.
