Everton: The Official Complete Record is the definitive account of one of the world’s most distinguished and groundbreaking clubs. With nine league titles, five FA Cups and a rich club lore that boasts names such as Dixie Dean, Alex Young, Alan Ball and more recent heroes like Tim Cahill and Romelu Lukaku, Everton’s is a history replete with success and high drama. Boasting one of the most passionate and knowledgeable sets of fans, Everton are justifiably known as 'The People s Club'.
Nearly 140 years after Everton's humble birth as a church team, Steve Johnson has painstakingly trawled through the archives to provide for details of every game, line up, goalscorer, attendance and result, as well a plethora of other facts and figures.
This officially endorsed record of one of English football's great names includes season-by-season accounts of every campaign since the onset of league football, more than 100 player profiles and a foreword by Club Legend, Bob Latchford. Fully revised and updated since its sell-out first edition from 2010 and benefiting from new advances in research, the new book now includes details of the club's wartime matches and pre-Football League matches making it an indispensable addition to every Evertonian's library.

Steve Johnson was born in Birkenhead in 1961. A lifelong Evertonian, he has studied, lived and worked - and followed the club home-and-away - from places as varied as Ellesmere Port, Sheffield, Bristol, Epsom and central London. In 2006 he combined a passion for statistics and all things Everton and launched the popular website evertonresults.com. He now lives in Buckinghamshire with his wife and two children. This book is the second edition of Johnson's seminal work.

What can I say?!
A fantastic reference book for all Evertonians and football statisticians generally.
Everything you could ever wish to know about the
Blues - and more, has been painstakingly compiled by Steve, a member of the EFC Heritage Society.
Breaking up the stats are thousands of gems regarding the club, many unearthed for the first time.
A book that you're likely to pick up to check a particular result or goalscorer, before realising hours later that you're still learning new things about our great club.
Thanks Steve, for an invaluable and unparalleled source of reference.
