“Here We Go Gathering Cups In May” is the story of Liverpool F.C’s ongoing love affair with the European Cup, told through the eyes and voices and the fans themselves. 7 Finals. 7 Fans. 7 amazing adventures, in which the ingenuity (and pockets) of the fans have been challenged as they set their sights on getting to that final by hook or by crook.Above all this collection of essays tells of the bond between a club and its fans; the lengths those fans will go to, in order to be there at the endgame to cheer on their team; what happened along the way; their escapades in some of Europe’s iconic capitals; and their recollections of those historic nights – nights of glory and, sometimes, nights of tragedy.
