AFTER the heartbreak of last year’s near miss, fans and pundits alike anticipated Brendan Rodgers’ Liverpool taking one step further and winning their first title since 1990.
But what followed was one of the most tumultuous seasons in the club’s history. Luis Suárez was embroiled in the third biting incident of his career at the World Cup, and was reluctantly sold to Barcelona. His replacement was the equally controversial Mario Balotelli.
The Italian struggled badly and it quickly became clear that the Reds’ problems extended far beyond the absence of a certain Uruguayan striker.
And with the season at its lowest ebb, the bombshell was dropped that arguably Liverpool’s greatest ever player, Steven Gerrard would be leaving.
Experience all the trials and tribulations from the perspective of a lifelong fan featuring articles from The Liverpool Way, Red All Over the Land and We Are Liverpool fanzines.
Packed with honesty and dark humour, Red Mist is an intense examination of what exactly went wrong at Anfield this season both on the pitch and behind the scenes.
Neil Collins is a diehard Liverpool supporter from Cardiff. Red Mist is his second book, and the follow-up to Make Us Dream.
