Calling all Everton fans.
Derek will be talking with Gavin Buckland about his book
When the wealthy Littlewoods corporation owner John Moores took control of Everton Football Club in 1960 it set in motion a chain of events that still affect the game in this country today. Although big clubs had spent money before, none had done so with such naked short- term ambition and a ruthlessness to succeed that sent shockwaves through the previously stagnant world of English football. Money Can’t Buy Us Love tells the tale of how Moores and manager Harry Catterick took the so-called ‘Mersey Millionaires’ to the summit of English football, in the context of the major cultural changes of the time.
