"Our Road To Istanbul' - available at the Haifa game on Wednesday

Posted by Rushian on August 8, 2006, 11:59:48 AM

"Our Road To Istanbul' is a pictorial tribute to the Reds' fantastic 2005 European Cup win. Produced by the lads at Red All Over The Land, all the pictures used in the special are those donated by fans who travelled by plane, train and moped during our fantastic run which started in Graz and ended on the banks of the Bosphorus in Istanbul. The tribute takes you on that magical journey from the Arnold Schwarzenegger to the Ataturk via Athens, La Coruna, Monaco, Leverkusen, Turin and London.

The 68 page album has a foreword by Kevin Sampson (author of Extra Time, Powder, Awaydays etc) and an afterword by Stephen Done (curator of the LFC museum), plus a superb piece of writing by RAOTL's own European regular John Mackin on what it was like to be part of history in Istanbul.
