“A uniQue and fascinating take on everton’s recent turbulent history

While the content may make you shudder, Evertonians, this is compulsive reading for an overview of our time under the ownership of Farhad Moshiri. So much has happened over this time that you have forgotten. This book leaves no stone unturned in detail through this time and is brilliantly written.
