Football Crazy

02Aug17

English football clubs are missing out on revenue because of a dumb rule THEY agreed to more than fifty years ago. We got news this week that it’s going to get harder to watch the Premier League on TV this season. A lot of people have been watching games on Kodi through PCs, X-Boxes, Google TV […]

Blame Me!

24Jan17

I am responsible for Liverpool’s defeat to Swansea on Saturday. It’s the first game I’ve managed to get to all season. I bought a new hat and scarf for the occasion. I can now, never wear that hat and scarf to another game. I want to get rid of them but how can a risk […]


Funny Brummie?

30Aug16

Is Birmingham really the funniest place to live in Britain? A new survey from Lastminute.com looked at over three million social conversations and combined the results with consumer research to uncover the laughter profiles of 25 towns and cities across the UK. They found that Birmingham is the funniest. Well done Brum, I lived there […]

Hate Crime

15May16

This week a man was arrested in Scotland because an online video shows his dog making a Nazi salute. He could now be charged for committing a hate crime. The Crown Prosecution Service website has a large section on hate crime and how they define it. I was particularly interested in the section on race […]


I had the honor and privilege of appearing on the PodcastOne international hit podcast “Up Close and Far Out” this week with the wonderful Michael Harrison from Talkers.com. The Talkers.com website described it as,”…an extensive chat with Graham Mack, the personable “breakfast show” host and program director of independent music and talk station BOB-FM located in the […]

Leicester City have changed the world. Now ANY club can win the Premiership. It’s the Roger Bannister effect. For years, experts said that the human body was simply not capable of running a mile in under four minutes, it was impossible. In the 1940’s, the mile record was pushed to four minutes and one second, where […]


I won’t be a Liverpool Football Club season ticket holder next season. I’ve been on the season ticket waiting list for ten years so far. I really thought I’d be in with a chance of getting to the top of the list next season because the club are increasing the capacity of Anfield by more […]

You can tell how much Liverpudlians like you by how short your name gets. Scousers go beyond just dropping your last name and start abbreviating your first name. In other parts of the world, it’s not uncommon for Stuart to become, “Stu” or David to become “Dave” but on Merseyside, Steve, which is already an […]

Everyone in Liverpool has a story. Today I went to Bootle to get my car’s air-conditioning re-charged. I met a bloke called Ian Parkinson from CoolCar. While Ian hooked up his gauges and vacuum pump, I got my phone out to check some emails. That’s when Ian noticed the Liver Bird on my home screen. […]


Correct Answer!

15Mar16

The literal truth is not always the best answer. As another big European night approaches for Liverpool Football Club, I’m reminded of the time my dad asked me why I support LFC. I was about ten and said, “Well, I was born in Liverpool, you support them, you’ve got a season ticket in the Kemlyn […]


Ticket to Snide

21Feb16

The fans are still being ripped off. Liverpool Football Club’s U-turn over the planned ticket price rises and public apology is welcome but does it go far enough? Premier League clubs will share in a windfall of more than £8.3 billion from their new broadcast contracts. Liverpool will earn at least £100m from the new […]


This Craic appears in issue 220 of the Liverpool fanzine, Red All Over The Land. I have to admit that when John Pearman, the editor of Red All Over The Land asked me to review a new Beatles book for the fanzine, I was expecting something a bit lighter. I don’t mean the content, I […]
