Football matches and football news seem a lifetime ago now doesn’t it. Here we are on the last day of March and instead of either celebrating being Champions, or on the verge of being crowned Champions, we are in the middle of this unprecedented, viral pandemic nightmare. It goes without saying that in times like […]
During all this coronavirus chaos, a bit of normality amidst all the virus updates and the possible impact on football. No mention for now on here of the impact of the virus on football.

Although Spurs went […]
Future Liverpool backroom Boot Room graduate and LFC manager, Joe Fagan was born on 12th March 1921.
