deCoubertin Books to publish Here We Go: Everton in the 1980s: The Players’ Stories

Posted by

deCoubertin Books are delighted to announce that we are publishing the updated and revised paperback edition of Simon Hart’s critically-acclaimed Here We Go: Everton in the 1980s: The Players’ Stories.

For Everton FC, the 1980s is the most successful decade in the club’s history. It was a time when Wembley became a second home for Howard Kendall’s band of brothers as they stepped out from Liverpool’s shadow to take their neighbours’ mantle as the country’s best team, winning two league titles, an FA Cup and the European Cup Winners’ Cup.

In Here We Go, Simon Hart interviews some of the Blues’ best-loved players from that era to provide a vivid, colourful portrait of a period when a group of unheralded young footballers came together to achieve something special with a rare, intoxicating mix of raw talent and team spirit.

Fully updated and revised for 2019 with an additional chapter on Paul Bracewell, the players featured include Kevin Ratcliffe, Adrian Heath, Gary Lineker, Pat van den Hauwe, Mark Higgins, Kevin Richardson, Paul Power and Pat Nevin, along with Colin Harvey, Kendall’s No2 during the glory days and subsequently manager himself by the decade’s end.
