In May 1985 Everton were the best team in Europe, having romped to the First Division title and lifted the European Cup Winners' Cup in thrilling style. That twin triumph was the culmination of a long and occasionally treacherous journey that started with the departure of Harry Catterick twelve years earlier. Set in the wider cultural and economic context of the time, Boys from the Blue Stuff tells the story of that passage. Chronicling the efforts of Billy Bingham and Gordon Lee to return the club to the summit of English football and out of the shadow cast across Stanley Park by their dominant neighbours, Boys from the Blue Stuff concludes with how Howard Kendall overcame the dark days of 1983 to produce the most successful Everton team in history. Expertly researched and brilliantly written, Boys from the Blue Stuff is the definitive account of an era in which Everton touched the extremes of triumph and despair, leaving an indelible mark on the club's illustrious history.
