My First Game: Liverpool 2 Manchester United 0 – December 17, 1995

I’M not sure this was my first game. In fact, I’m pretty certain it wasn’t. But rather than subjecting you to a fleeting, millisecond memory of a Graeme Souness side toiling against some claret and blue blur around 1992, I thought I’d recall the first game which...

My First Game: Everton 3 Chelsea 2 – November 11, 1978

IT seems strange to talk about my first game when I’ve no idea when the next one is, but these are strange days indeed. I’m not used to no football. I don’t suppose any of us are. And it’s not as if you can go and see a lower league game or even a kickabout in the...

Liverpool 2 Atletico Madrid 3: The Match Review

THERE is something horrendous about going out like that. Stilettos and broken bottles all over the shop. Let's get it out of the way: The goalkeeper's error is dreadful, it changes the game and costs Liverpool the tie. He's not a bad person, is a good second-choice...

AND there you have it. A fucking league-stopping pandemic coupled with an Atletico diddle. Lash into the mix that loads of people we know are probably going to die, but even if they don’t we will all be fucking skint and living off fucking grass and whatever we can...

Anfield Isn’t For Everyone – And That’s What Makes It
