"What leaps off the pages and what Neil Atkinson, John Gibbons and all their many esteemed contributors capture so brilliantly is the feeling of reclamation, the feeling of a city and a football club finding harmony." Ben Smith, BBC
"It's funny, thought-provoking, fast-paced, devastating and uplifting...often on the same page. Quite simply, I haven't read a better review of a season since The Glory Game and Hunter Davies had an unprecedented access all areas pass to produce his classic." --Liverpool Echo

Liverpool’s 2013/14 campaign was no ordinary football season. It was the season when everything changed. A year of hope, fantasy, adventure; where joyous reclamation met crushing disappointment and won. A season defined by many individuals, moments, goals and memories. A time when the brand of heroic and daring football - and footballers – that seemed consigned to the sepia toned era of the game’s past returned. It was a season when millions of Liverpool supporters dared to dream again.
In Make Us Dream, The Anfield Wrap’s Neil Atkinson and John Gibbons take us on a journey through Liverpool’s most remarkable Premier League season. In a journey that takes them from Melbourne to Merseyside and all places in between, they detail the explosion of belief from Liverpool’s worldwide diaspora.
Demonstrating how Liverpool’s season impacted a club and support at a crossroads between its past and football’s future, the authors are joined by a series of guest writers, sharing their own impressions and experiences. Between them they create a compelling and passionate narrative of a club, city and supporter base having the most fun in the world.
