Ghosts on the Wall: The Authorised Biography of Roy Evans by Derek Dohren

Ghost on the Wall is the official biography of one of Liverpool Football Club's greatest-ever servants. Roy Evans was signed by legendary manager Bill Shankly in 1965, but subsequently found it hard to break into the first team, managing only 11 sporadic appearances before his playing career stuttered to a halt. Following Shankly's shock resignation in 1974, Evans became a member of the backroom staff, coming of age as a coach and trainer. He emerged as a pivotal member of Anfield's famous Boot Room throughout the 1970s and '80s, and between 1994 and 1998 he was manager at the club. His commitment to developing future stars such as Robbie Fowler, Steve McManaman, and Michael Owen ensured that he was not to become another "ghost on the wall" at Anfield. For the first time, Evans candidly recollects his working relationships with Reds figures from Shankly to Houllier, and provides a vivid portrait of operations at the club over the last four decades.
