Hi everyone. Mike Berry got in touch with me over the weekend to let me know that he has recently written a book about the legendary Everton team of 1970 that won the First Division title at a canter, with the ‘Holy Trinity’ of Alan Ball, Colin Harvey and Howard Kendall running their midfield. However, Everton failed to capitalise on this success and weren’t to win any more silverware until Kendall returned as manager with FA Cup success in 1984.
1970 & All That: An Evertonian’s Story is a detailed look at what made that side so good, but also an investigation into why it didn’t achieve the sustained success that seemed it’s destiny. Looking at the 1970 season from the point of view of fans and players alike should prove an interesting read for every Evertonian and any football fan, and could be just the poolside read you’ve been looking for on your Summer holidays.
Mike asked me if any NZ Evertonians would be interested so I thought I’d give it a plug here, so if any one is interested…
