My life obviously revolves around football fixtures and my diary is my constant companion. I’m due to take part in a Charity Golf Day at Formby Hall on 11th March and for those of you that know your fixture lists inside-out, you’ll be aware that this is the date for the first leg of the last 16 of the Europa...
A Regional Vision
I spent yesterday morning, with about a hundred representatives of public and private sector organisations in the region, at the unveiling of the Northwest Development Agency's Draft Regional Strategy paper.
A variety of speakers presented a clear vision for the Liverpool City Region, tackling issues such as the low carbon economy, economic regeneration and how we might...
Over my many years of watching and commentating on football, I quickly learned that no matter how down you may feel after one particular game and performance, there’s always another to look forward to - invariably in a very short space of time.
If like me, you were so desperately disappointed at going out of the FA Cup, you probably consoled...
Well I don’t think I’ve ever been any colder when commentating than on Saturday at The Emirates Stadium. I can recall being exceptionally cold over in Holland a couple of years back when we met AZ Alkmaar but I’m fairly certain that was eclipsed in London at the weekend!

Often teams can find themselves playing 3 or 4 games in the space...
The frequency of my ‘blogging’ is not what I would like which, being defensive, is not to say I’ve stopped talking to fans. Indeed in the last fortnight, I’ve met our Fans’ Forum group, representatives of our Shareholders’ Association, our London Supporters’ Club and the Rice Lane Supporters Club who kindly funded a charity lunch with proceeds going to the...
I’m looking forward to getting back behind the microphone on Saturday following the international break (thankfully the last of the season!!).
However, I don’t particularly relish the 5.30pm kick-off time. It’s probably the worst slot of the weekend given that it eats into virtually all of your day. Not too much time to do anything before or after really by the...
Just penning this prior to what will hopefully be another successful European trip. This is the one most Evertonians I’m sure have been looking forward to. It’s a visit to a top city and a great stadium belonging to a club steeped in European tradition. There’ll be thousands of Blues taking over the city of Libson on Wednesday and Thursday...
