As Liverpool ended their 30-year wait to be crowned champions of England, they were followed by their equivalent from the world of sports writing: a team of elite talents, assembled to leave all competition trailing in their wake. This is the story of Liverpool’s title win in the longest season, as told by the writers of The Athletic. Never in the history of football writing has a league race been covered in such depth by such a talented pool of writers as the newly-assembled staff of The Athletic. The result is an alchemical blend of inside access and expert analysis; great ideas and beautiful writing. Liverpool’s title win is relived in real time, in 360 degrees.
