2004 is the 125th anniversary of Everton Football Club, one of English football's oldest and most successful teams. The School of Science is the definitive history of the club by James Corbett, a lifelong Everton fan and the founder of the hugely popular fanzine, Gwladys Sings the Blues. From Everton's first league match (a 2-1 victory over Accrington) to the glorious championship team of 1938-9, from the relegation of the early fifties to the dramatic FA Cup victory of 1966, from Dixie Dean to Gary Lineker, from John Moores to David Moyes, Everton's history has been studded with triumph and, as any fan kws only too well, disaster. Look back, if you can bear it, to the regime of 'Agent' Johnson. Marvel at the achievements of the team built by Harry Catterick. Relive the glory of the 1987 season. Reaquaint yourself with Tommy Lawton, the Wayne Rooney of 1938. James Corbett's history of the side goes behind the scenes and uncovers the stories of the individuals who made the club, from the boardroom to the boot room. Written with the enthusiasm and stoicism of a committed Toffeeman, the wit of a fanzine and the authority of a historian.
