“My wife wanted the honour of opening it, and she then spent almost an hour flicking through it. Her comments were amazing. The quality of paper, layout, research, design and she said, forget it's about programmes, forget it's about
Liverpool FC, it's simply an incredible book, a masterpiece. And I think Andy that said it all. So congratulations and well done, ...millions of thanks for giving us LFC programme collectors a Bible we craved for and are proud of.”
David Lynch, Dublin
“I was gobsmacked, wow. Congratulations on a superb production and I hope you get what you deserve for the LFC Foundation.”
Christy Ryan, Cork
“It’s a colossal, metatarsal-crushing, limited-edition paean to Liverpool FC matchday programmes”
Official Liverpool FC Monthly Magazine February 2022 (Issue 113)
“This book is beyond ACE... Every page has a surprise, either a cover I recognise, a very interesting anecdote, adverts and sponsors, design, fashions... It's a real window on life and culture through the programmes of my favourite team, couldn't have asked for more... The presentation is nothing short of awesome and it's been put together with so much care, attention and thought. The book quality is excellent and the paper quality which thankfully do the content justice."
Rich Gillitt, Mansfield
“If this volume had been written under the auspices of a University, [Andy] Marsden would be honoured and acclaimed.”
Programme Monthly & Football Collectable, Issue 490, February 2022
“Your book arrived this morning! It’s absolutely fabulous - a book to return to again and again. What an amazing achievement!”
Eric Phillips, Cardiff
“I did not open it until last night. It was like a Christmas present under the tree!! By now, you know how incredible it is but it blew my mind. The main first team programmes are incredible but what I love the most actually are the Liverpool Senior Cup, the American tours… I couldn't believe you went into that amount of detail. The research element is phenomenal… It just gets better and better and better!!!”
Kevin J Foley, Midleton, County Cork
“...I would just like to add my congratulations as many others have done on an unbelievable effort on your part to produce this book. I haven't put it down yet as it brings so many memories of games attended also the little facts that I didn't even know about.”
Ray Annal, Chester
“The best football book ever!”
Dougie Wix, Liverpool
“I can attest to the utter brilliance of Andy Marsden's book. I'm not a Liverpool collector, but can say without a doubt this book will never be bettered."
Peter Elliott, Preston
"It is without doubt the best football programme and memorabilia book ever published - it sets the standard for other clubs to reach. All profits go to a great cause too. Even if you do not follow Liverpool, this is still a great buy. I tip my hat to those involved in its production."
Natalie (via amazon.co.uk)
"Whatever your club affiliations, this is an epic piece of work and an absolute joy to behold. Quite magnificent, in fact, an epic history of seven decades of programmes. It is some book."
Paul Bowser, Thirsk
"This book has been meticulously researched & compiled. It is comprehensively illustrated throughout with images of every front cover, which brings the reader on a nostalgic journey, re-living Liverpool's numerous glorious campaigns. This Book has without doubt set a new standard for all future publications to aspire to and is aptly entitled 'The Definitive Collector's Guide'."
Gerard Scully, Bishopstown
"This is probably one of the best books I’ve read. The sheer history of Liverpool through the medium of the match programme is superbly written and illustrated throughout.
This is a book you will return too on many occasions I’m sure."
Andrew Philip, Liverpool
"I can honestly say that it would be my choice of book should I ever be invited onto Desert Island Discs. In its concept, size, weight and content it is a sheer delight. I congratulate you for all your
hard work and dedication in completing such a Herculean task."
Les Morris, Leeds
