Relive one of the most extraordinary seasons in the history of Liverpool Football Club with the Official Season Diary 2018/19. The Reds amassed a club record 97 points in an amazing Premier League title race, losing just once, but were still pipped to the title by a single point by Manchester City.

Their inspirational centre-half Virgil van Dijk was voted Player of the Season by his fellow PFA professionals. Wing-backs Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andy Robertson joined the above in the team of the season and were instrumental in the style of play that had the whole of Anfield on their feet.
Their charismatic manager Jurgen Klopp wrote the foreword was equally relived and euphoric to have ended the campaign with a trophy: ” It’s been an unbelievable season. This team is one of the best to have ever played for Liverpool, 100%. “

G2 is handling the worldwide rights and publicity for Matt Ogborn’s new biography of Tyson Fury, entitled The Comeback King which is due for release this September.
Once the bad boy of British boxing, Tyson Fury was
widely underrated – his flamboyant lifestyle and
outlandish antics drawing attention to his life outside
the ring, rather than his achievements in it. But a
truly dominant display against one of the greatest
heavyweight boxers of all time, Wladimir Klitschko,
changed all of that. Fury became champion of the
world and resolutely silenced his doubters.
With the world at his feet, however, Fury struggled
with depression and started to party hard. He was
banned from boxing for the use of illegal substances
and was stripped of his title. After ballooning to
nearly 24 stone in weight, many questioned whether
he would ever step into the ring again.
What followed was one of the great sporting
comebacks. Fury rediscovered his love of boxing
and began training again. In just nine months he was
back in shape and on the title trail, with Deontay
Wilder, the WBC heavyweight champion, the man in
his sights. The two faced off in LA in what was one of
the most memorable fights of the modern era. Wilder
controversially retained his title following a 12-round
split decision draw, but Fury won over the boxing
world and wrote his name into the history books.
