The 1980s where a decade of tough times on Merseyside, unemployment, riots and strikes left the area in a depression and certain parts resembling a communist country in the Cold War, a far cry from the boom town that is now the City centre of Liverpool. The saving grace for many in this area and what put a smile on people's faces, was the game of football and the teams they supported. Many a word has been written about this era, the music, the fashion the terrace trouble and this book offers a glimpse of that alongside the glory on the pitch for one team, the team that at the centre of this much reminisced decade, was quite simply the best, Everton Football Club. The era is told through the eyes of a teenager, addicted to the great game and what evolved around the great game, from the Gwladys Street to the craziness of The Enclosure, from Andy King to Andy Gray. The story started in scrapbooks in the 1980s and this book continues the scrapbook feel to take you back to that time that makes us smile so much but has now sadly long gone, but never to be forgotten, this book helps us never to forget it, It was wrote so a young son can have a feel of being there and never forgetting it too and with a hope it can offer the same to others.
