This is the first book Lijnders has authored. The book was written with the aim in mind ‘to bring supporters closer to their team than ever before.’ (Lijnders, 2022)
There’s also particular excitement about this launch because this is a very important season for Liverpool…
Intensity: Inside Liverpool FC sets its main focus on an inside story of how a fantastic season developed for the Reds, from putting the plans into practice during pre-season training to the extraordinary drive for all major honours. Readers will likely find a particular interest in the family-like, close relationship between the staff and the players based on respect, admiration, love and intensity for one another. Intensity: Inside Liverpool FC was released by publisher Reach Sport.
Pep Lijnders has a background in assisting Jurgen Klopp. This helped shaped the creation of the book ‘In a season so much happens and many things will never be spoken about again, but these are the moments that especially define us – and now it is written down. I’m proud of us, I’m proud of the hard work.’ (Lijnders, 2022).
When asked about why they wrote the book, Lijnders said: ‘This team deserves to be spoken about in a way that’s real,’ (Lijnders, 2022).
Lijnders has hopes that the book will inspire a lot of football and sports lovers. ‘Good teams are made when things don’t go well. […] We needed a new start […] in life you have these periods where you feel it’s now or never. Adversity can create a new start […] Williams, S. (2022, July 26th).

This positive outlook from the author is certainly testament to their optimism considering that the book has been written after a disappointing season last summer with many injuries. For Pep this is the right time to release his book as he feels that it would become a ‘do-or-die season’ (Lijnders, 2022). It is an inside story of how a fantastic season developed for the Reds, from putting the plans into practice during pre-season training to the extraordinary drive for all major honours.
In a recent interview, the author made a point of thanking Jurgen Klopp for their part in the creation of the book, saying: “‘Jurgen trusted James and I with his words and we could not have done it without his blessing.’ (Lijnders, 2022)”
