At the start of 2008 myself and some other LFC fans got together to compile a book of fan stories from trips home, away and abroad. All profits from this book went to the Ray of Hope Appeal, a charity set up to help Liverpool legend Ray Kennedy in his fight against Parkinsons’ Disease. Thanks to the help of everyone the charity raised over £50,000 for Ray, with our book contributing to that total. Now Ray is set financially and Ray of Hope have stopped asking for donations, for this reason we’re taking the book off the market.
We’d like to say a big thanks, first of all, to all those who contributed to the book. We were inundated with hundreds of amazing stories of great games from our past and unfortunately only a handful could go into the book. Still, we’d like to thank everyone who contributed a story, whether or not it was put into the book it was still great of you to spend your time trying to help out a hero like Ray Kennedy.
Secondly, we’d like to thank everyone who helped with the book at Lulu publishing. This was our first book and we went into it not knowing what to do and how to compile the book. So we’d like to thank those at Lulu who gave us step-by-step guidance all the way and gave us a platform to sell the book from. Without them it would be likely the book would have never got off the ground and we wouldn’t have raised the money we did. We’d like to thank Ken Anderson in particular, who gave us great advice despite his own health problems.
Finally we’d like to thank all of you who bought the book, your the reason this book has been successful and without you we wouldn’t have raised what we did for Ray. Whether you bought the limited edition hard back or the paper back you donated the money that has made Ray’s quality of life better and as the producers of the book that makes us extremely proud.
Paul Tomkins’ new book is out now and for a limited time you can purchase the collector’s edition for only £12.50, it retails for £50.00.
Red Race: A New Bastion includes:
• An in-depth analysis of the 2008/09 season, with both anecdotal and original statistical analysis of the entire Liverpool squad. How did the team perform with certain players in the side? whose absence was most keenly felt? who contributed most in the big games? and many more relevant questions are answered;
• A unique analysis of the wherewithal it takes to win the title in the Premiership era, with evaluations of all major title challengers, and the money they’ve spent, using the Relative Transfer System™ devised for Dynasty. Who has got the most league points in relation to the money they spent? –– looking at the entire Premiership in the 2008/09 season, and in particular at those challenging for honours over the past 17 years;
• A look at the controversial youth structure at Liverpool, combined with an examination of the average ages of every successful team in the modern era, to see if you really can win league titles with ‘kids’, and how the current squad fares by comparison;
• Ferguson vs Benítez: a look at the rivalry that intensified over the course of the season, as well as the similarities in the situations each faced in the early years of the job; leading to the inevitable look at Ferguson vs Dalglish, from when the United manager was in pretty much the same situation to his current Liverpool counterpart;
And much more. Beyond anything else, it is an examination of what the Reds have to do to land a 19th title in the near future.

After watching his beloved Reds win the European Cup in 2005, Shields’ happiness turned to horror as he ended up behind bars convicted of an attack on a Bulgarian waiter that he was adamant he did not commit. Released after more than four long years in prison, this book tells his untold story – of the battle to clear his name and the remarkable campaign staged by his family, friends and ultimately Liverpool Football Club to see justice done.
