Read extracts from 'Like I Say' Extract 1 Extract 2


After the success of his first offering on Liverpool Football Club, 'The King's Last Stand', Dave Usher, editor of the widely known and loved LFC fanzine 'The Liverpool Way', follows up with his latest publication, 'Like I Say... The Story of the 2012-13 Season'.

Fans of the first book - and indeed his many other 'TLW' musings in print, online and via podcast - will recognise Dave's trademark quick-witted, independently-minded analysis of all things Red as he now trains his focus on Brendan Rodgers' first campaign at the helm of the club. This time around, Usher provides his take on the start of a new era in the managerial hot-seat, the end of another with the retirement of a Liverpool legend and of course the now ubiquitous chapter on a Luis Suarez controversy - albeit one where the player seemed to have "bitten off" more than he, the club or indeed anyone else could chew.

Interspersed throughout are contemporaneous match reports and week-by-week round ups on the rest of the league that emphasise once again the definitive nature of his Red perspective on a football campaign as 'Like I Say... The Story of the 2012-13 Season' cements Dave Usher's place as the sharpest voice on the mighty Reds and indeed football beyond the bounds of L4.

A must-buy for both Reds and other football fans alike.



Praise for 'Like I Say'


"'Like I Say' is a really funny and enjoyable read. If you enjoyed 'the King's Last Stand' then you'll love this too."

Jamie Carragher, Sky Sports & ex LFC

"An authentic and expert view of Brendan Rodgers' first season as Liverpool manager. A must read for every Liverpool fan."

Tony Barrett, The Times

"Truthful, witty and with a reverence for Anfield nostalgia which never descends into over-sentimental bullsh*t, Dave Usher is a go to writer for all Liverpool fans."

Chris Bascombe, Daily Telegraph


"'Like I Say' is the most comprehensive, insightful and amusing review of the 2012/13 season you'll find anywhere. Dave's LFC match reports are perceptive and detailed, whilst his weekly take on the rest of the Premier League fixtures is often cutting, occasionally cruel and always hilarious! A must read for any Red"

Neil Mellor, former Reds striker and current TV and Radio analyst

"In an era where conjecture is often presented as undisputed fact across a variety of media platforms, the Liverpool Way is a fanzine that reliably reflects accurately what is really going on at Anfield. Now in its third decade as a publication of high standing, there are - indeed - few independent writers that can claim to have the endurance of its founder, Dave Usher. 'Like I Say' is chock-full of the kind of humour and perceptive analysis that has characterised Usher's work in the fanzine"

Simon Hughes, LFC official Magazine


"Dave Usher's fanzine, The Liverpool Way, has long been essential reading for Reds fans. His latest book, 'Like I Say', is no different. Few writers capture what it means to be a Liverpool supporter as well as Usher."

Ben Thornley, Daily Post

"Honest, witty, and with no punches pulled, the reports and roundups on The Liverpool Way website have become essential reading for many Reds. I would also imagine fans from other clubs find them interesting, and occasionally offensive, particularly those who happen to support Stoke City! Dave Usher is a fan who knows the soul of the club and on the terraces, and being independant does not need to hide behind any sort of protocol. For anyone who follows the mighty Redmen, you'll be hard pressed to find a better account of the 2012/13 season than 'Like I Say'"

Torbjorn Flatin, The Kopite

"If you are looking for the thoughts and opinions of a writer who perfectly captures the mood of Liverpool supporters, Dave Usher certainly provides that. Throughout the season I look forward to Dave's reports - he sees the game with perspective and superbly details this in his writing. Funny, honest and balanced, you can feel the frustrations and passion in his words. The phrase 'nail on the head' perfectly describes my thoughts after reading Dave's descriptions and views on Liverpool games and issues"
