Rivalry on and off the pitch
Sports journalists Phil McNulty and Jim White have written a book about why the inhabitants of the cities Liverpool and Manchester have disliked one another across generations, class, gender and ethnicity. This conflict is fuelled to a great extent by the rivalry between the football clubs Manchester United and Liverpool FC, and by way of ten legendary football matches, interviews with veterans of the game like Alex Ferguson, Kenny Dalglish, Steven Gerrard and Gary Neville, together with fans, referees and many other involved parties, we get a glimpse of how and why the conflict has developed.
Phil McNulty from Liverpool and Jim White from Manchester have collaborated on the book and will be in conversation with journalist and football enthusiast Davy Wathne.
After the conversation, there will be time for questions from the audience.
