Lost?
by Anthony Carragher

As Liverpool F.C. celebrates it’s 125th anniversary, Anthony Carragher tells the story of a football club and game that have lost their way, exploring the gloried past, the moneyed present and the uncertain future of both Liverpool FC and the English game at large.

Liverpool F.C.’s most famous manager, Bill Shankly, declared that the club ‘exists to win trophies’ and for many years this maxim proved true, as Liverpool became one of the most successful clubs in European football and dominated the scene in England for over two decades. Yet recently, the victories have dried up and Liverpool have not won the league title for 27 years. Football is also in a state of flux as major TV deals have made the English league the wealthiest in the world, but the gap between the elite clubs and those striving to catch up widens. Has the game lost it’s soul? Who will rise and who will fall as a new uncharted era in football unfolds?

Inspired by Hunter Davies’ The Glory Game, Lost? captures exclusive interviews with key figures including former Liverpool managers, Brendan Rodgers and Roy Evans, the Shankly family and a whole host of footballing legends, past and present. The book also includes reflective pieces on every other Premier League club from both a sporting and cultural perspective, looking not just at the teams in isolation, but at the communities, and landscapes that shape them.

Lost? will appeal to Liverpool F.C. fans, as well as readers with an interest in the history and the future of the game itself.
