View all copies of this ISBN edition:

This book focuses on what is arguably the most extraordinary game in the long and illustrious history of Liverpool FC ~ the 2005 European Champions League Final against AC Milan at the Ataturk Stadium in Istanbul.

As the spectators assembled in the stadium to watch the game, accompanied by millions more on TV, little did they realise that they were about to be taken on the roller-coaster ride of a lifetime.

Three goals down at half-time, Liverpool seemed to have lost the game for sure ~ but went on to stage a truly remarkable comeback ~ stretching the nerves of every Liverpool fan to breaking point and beyond.

For Michael Bailey and his father, two lifelong Reds who were lucky enough to be in the Ataturk Stadium that night, it was an unforgettably emotional experience, and not just because of what was happening on the pitch.

Earlier that year, three of Michael's close friends had lost their fathers, making him appreciate his own Dad all the more, so when offered two tickets for the final, Michael jumped at the chance ~ little suspecting at the time just how memorable a game it would turn out to be.

Michael succeeds in recapturing the spirit of the occassion and, in doing so, gets to the heart of what being a Liverpool fan is all about.
