This message from Ken via the site.
Message: Message for Sharon Jones. I hadn’t been able to contact you as your email seems to have lapsed and would like to know if you still want your Liverpool Christ painting. Let me know if you want it and when you can pick it up from me at 27 Mentmore Road L18 4PU. Hope you are well. Best wishes Ken Storey

Great imagery Steve. Ran into a mate who is a City fan yesterday…It’s hard to take but a journey. At least you have the Euros to focus on…keep on ..More please.

Loving the coach’s ‘why we went out of the tournament’ clichés John! We can but dream though.

A football lover’s lament. Beautifully measured poem on the great divide. Thank you, Crispin.

Thanks for this, Crispin, a souvenir of a memorable night. Reading it brought tears to my eyes. Commiserations to City fans, I thought your name was on the trophy this time.

Thanks Greg for your valued slant on the sad booing of The Knee’ in both Riverside England pre-Euros friendlies this week.
We love Paul Canoville and all that he stands for on this site. Stuart Butler and I have both worked with him at Chelsea and Clik The Mouse is a huge lifelong Blues fan. I’m incredibly proud to be mentioned in his book Black & Blue. Paul’s story is phenomenal, the things he endured.
Keep them coming Greg and let’s hear more from you in the Euros. Crispin

Cheers Crispin, yeah I’m absolutely gagging to get out there and start ranting at people again. Online zoom gigs have been a godsend and invaluable for the sanity – but nothing like the real thing!

Nice one Steve .. bet you can’t wait to get back to doing live gigs….keep on best C.
