About this book:

On 25 May 1967, Celtic beat Inter Milan 2–1 to become the first British team to win the European Cup. Fifty years on, The Lions of Lisbon relives the jubilation from the fans’ point of view.


Not so much a show as a phenomenon [...] a joyful, well-crafted piece of work, weaving together at least five storylines about fans making their way to Portugal, and culminating in an epic encounter in a Lisbon boozer.   Joyce McMillan, The Guardian
