Publisher's Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

This audiobook edition is narrated by Alan Davies.

Anfield, May 26th 1989.

The final day of the Division One season. The rest of football stopped to watch as perennial champions Liverpool took on rank outsiders Arsenal in a head-to-head contest for the title. With the Gunners leading 1-0 but desperately needing another goal to take the title, it was, in the immortal words of commentator Brian Moore, ‘up for grabs now....’

Set against the backdrop of Hillsborough disaster, and during an emotional era in football long before the Premier League as we now know it, 89 is an oral history of a sporting moment so unusual it felt instantly historic.

Drawing on years of research, writer Amy Lawrence brings together fascinating and never-before seen testimony from the voices who were there, on the pitch, off it, and beyond.

89 creates a definitive and kaleidoscopic portrait of a match and an iconic moment in English football that changed the sport forever.

A wonderful trip down memory lane

A brilliantly written (and narrated) book about Arsenal's historic 88/89 season.
Comments and memories from players and fans giving a really nice perspective on that fateful night from multiple angles.
A feel good story that is hard to believe really happened 30 year on!
