Although big clubs had spent money before, none had so with such naked short-term ambition and a ruthlessness to succeed that sent shockwaves through the previously stagnant world of English football. Money Can't Buy Us Love tells the tale of how Moores and manager Harry Catterick took the so-called 'Mersey Millionaires' to the summit of English football, in the context of the major cultural changes of the time.Gavin Buckland is the official statistician to Everton FC and has written a number of books about the club, including Strange but Blue.
