After cutting his journalistic teeth at Sky Sports and FourFourTwo magazine, Alan Wilson has been writing about all levels of football, from grass roots to international competitions, for the national newspapers for many years. A regular enthusiastic amateur player on Hackney Marshes until his knees called it a day, Alan is now based in the North West reporting for The Sunday People, Daily Mirror and others. Team of all the Macs is his first foray into writing a book motivated by a need to separate fact from fiction in telling the story of the turbulent birth of Liverpool Football Club.
Many football fans today believe the current trend of wealthy owners throwing their money at teams and flooding the game with overpaid foreign players is new - it is anything but. This book covers English football's first foreign invasion in 1892 and the birth of Liverpool Football Club.
