"Our identity is intensity," declares Liverpool FC assistant-coach Pep Lijnders in this compelling account of the 2021/22 season, and from the very first chapter he takes us on a thrilling football ride we will never forget.
Pep is Jurgen Klopp's right-hand man. Returning to the LFC coaching staff in 2018, the highly-respected Dutchman has been key to everything the Reds have achieved since: a sixth European Cup, UEFA Super Cup, FIFA Club World Cup, and of course a first Premier League title claimed with a record-breaking 99 points.
And so much more besides. Liverpool's blistering brand of football has revived a sleeping giant, energised its vast army of fans, entertained crowds at home and all over the world, and redefined coaching excellence. Now Pep tells the inside story of a season which, even by LFC standards, has been truly sensational.
Week by week as the drama unfolds it's all here: from pre-season to unforgettable finale; great goals and gruelling schedules; passionate team-talks and personal reflections; unsung heroes and Kop idols; the pride and the passion, the joy and the heartache...and the fun. In his own engaging and inspiring style, Pep takes readers behind-the-scenes at Anfield, the AXA Training Ground and the team hotel; on the pitch, in the dugout and back in the dressing-room away from the media glare. In creating a 'one-club' mentality, Lijnders, Klopp and co have also created countless modern memories for the LFC family, and this unique book chronicles their legacy.
