Liverpool 1 – 2 United

Liverpool Rob (I didn’t know the Spanish had a thing for collecting stamps. It was an intriguing match where both teams struggled to create good scoring opportunities, both worked hard to find space and to close it down. Boring to a neutral, frustrating to a fan. I’m going to state the obvious here, for the […]

Liverpool vs United

Liverpool Rob Now it may come as some surprise to you to read that I like to see Man U lose. Indeed, that’s the main reason I’ve watched so many Utd matches these past couple of years. I’ve probably seen more Utd games than Brett. But that’s nothing to brag about round ‘ere. At the […]

  Liverpool Rob: Usually I steer well clear of Brett’s advances around this peculiarity in the football calendar. If he gets hold of me he asks me out on a date to watch the match, because, well, we’re friends and it doesn’t matter who wins (or loses). This year I’m happy to put that theory […]

As You Were

As You Were

If football is supposed to be the new religion then consider my allegiance with the church wafer thin. I’m that close to excommunication. My God has offered me very little to be pleased with: scandals, usury, censorship. Worst of all, the church I belong to has disgraced itself more than most. It is embarrassing watching […]
