CAN LIVERPOOL FC win the league?
That’s the question every Red is asking themselves, their mates, their family and anyone else that will listen. So it would have been rude to not ask the very same question of a player who was in the Liverpool side last time the league trophy came home to Anfield in 1989-90.
And the answer from Ray Houghton – a man who won two titles with the Reds? “There is a definite chance for Liverpool to do something spectacular.” Read more from our exclusive interview with Ray in issue eight of the new FREE Anfield Wrap magazine.
One of the reasons for Liverpool’s improbable title challenge this season has been an exciting brand of attacking football that for many has brought back memories of Roy Evans’s reign at Anfield. And in TAWMAG, Roy speaks to David Segar about his time in charge.
We’ve also got an exclusive interview with a potential future Anfield star – 16-year-old Scouse midfielder Jordan Rossiter.
Also footie-wise in issue 8 of The Anfield Wrap magazine:
- Neil Scott on Martin Skrtel
- Neil Atkinson on Peter Carney’s football tour of Liverpool – Soccer In The City
- Stephen Armstrong on ‘the real matchday experience’ – or why we footie fans stick with our team through thick and thin
- Steve Graves on women’s football
- Mike Nevin on hating Nottingham Forest
- Iain MacIntosh on the idea of Premier League teams introducing ‘B’ teams to the lower leagues
- Jim Boardman on Raheem Sterling
As ever, we’ve also got loads of music in the mag, too. In issue 8, John Gibbons interviews Ian Broudie (The Lightning Seeds) and speaks to upcoming Scouse talent Dominic Dunn, who is shortly releasing a single about the tireless and inspirational Hillsborough campaigner Anne Williams.
John also speaks to Creation Records founder Alan McGee about his new night in Liverpool, and we feature the supremely talented Sugarmen, who recently played McGee’s night.
Another Anfield Wrap favourite, The Tea Street Band, also feature with Neil Atkinson reviewing their forthcoming debut album, and riding the now infamous 82 bus with singer-guitarist Timo Tierney.
To close, we have yet another ‘Magcast’ from Liverpool’s Motel Bar, with Andy Heaton, Rob Gutmann and Mike Nevin joining Neil for the show, with music provided by Married To The Sea.
