In Anfield of Dreams, Neil Dunkin talks with great passion about the beautiful game in a language that football fans will appreciate. "At club after club," he writes, "players sign up in a fanfare of publicity, kiss the badge, suck the ring and slope away; managers are chauffeured to the front door and sneak out the back; directors hog the limelight and slink into obscurity; chief executives swear allegiance, then swap sides for more loot; shareholders sit on their speculative investments and flog them off to the highest bidders.

"The one constant, the only unchanging factor, the sole inalterable element is the fan÷"

As readers might have ascertained, this is a book about Liverpool FC and of Dunkin's entertaining half-century odyssey as he follows the Anfield men from the second division to Istanbul. But this is not a book solely for Liverpool supporters; anyone who worries that football clubs have become highly-prized assets should read it and realise that that is not an inevitable state of affairs. Dunkin simply refuses to accept it.
