The Immovable Liverpool!

As a fan of one of the most iconic teams in world football, we are mocked by others because of the team that we support: Liverpool FC. ‘Bottlers’, ‘ashamed by everything’, etc are few of the terms that are thrown in our faces by non-associates of our club.

In Praise of the Fan From Afar

Who is more passionate?  The local fan, born and bred into their club, immersed in its history and mythology, or the fan from afar, the nomadic devotee, the much reviled glory hunter?
