RONNIE WHELAN’S BOOK A MUST READ

Friends Of Liverpool

Liverpool legend, Ronnie Whelan has brought out his autobiography: “Walk On: My Life in Red”.

Its a very good piece of work, from his humble beginnings in Dublin to having a glittering career with the Reds from 1979-1994.

During that time he won six League Titles, one European Cup, three League Cups and two FA Cups.

In an honest and open manner, he describes what it was like as a player during both the Heysel Stadium and the Hillsborough tragedies.
He states that the players were so traumatised by Hillsborough, that,  to this day, they are unable to mention it or talk about it in any way.

Ronnie played 362 times for Liverpool, scoring 46 goals along the way.
He was voted the thirtieth best player in the club’s illustrious history on the Official Liverpool website.

He also had a sucessful International career with Ireland from 1981 to 1995.
He played in Euro 88, scoring a spectacular diving volley against Russia.
He also featured in Italia 90, but his International career was dogged with injuries and a lack of playing time under then manager Jack Charlton.
Ronnie Whelan’s book is a revealing insight into life at Anfield in the Eighties and early Nineties.
A must-read for all Liverpool fans.
