When Saturday Comes…

Writing about web page

Liverpool FCNow that football has resumed after its lengthy summer break, this is perhaps a good opportunity to look back to previous seasons and see how the game and its place in society have altered.

This photo shows the Liverpool FC first team in the pub, brandishing pints, the day before the 1966 Merseyside derby (they beat a presumably less well fortified Everton 5-1). The shot was used as part of an advertising campaign by the Brewers' Society, featuring celebrities from the worlds of sport, film, television and literature.

Other images relating to 125 years of football are in our online exhibition '125 Years of the Beautiful Game: Football, Politics and Society', including top-end football kit from 1884, impressive footballing moustaches, and early debates over the morality of player transfers and the merits of fan-ownership.
