Wednesday will see a long overdue trip to Liverpool to meet up with my son Chris and perhaps see one or two of the attractions of the place. Previous efforts to organise this trip have failed due to hospital scans, Chris’ university commitments and me being out of the country!
I have been before. Anfield. Goodison Park. A six-a-side venue somewhere in the Everton Valley, a failed job interview and the airport before business trips to Belfast. But despite having lived within an hour of the place nearly all my life I’ve never actually done any of the sights.
I’ve booked a £40 hotel room for use after Tuesday night’s Oldham game and will make a post-rush hour trip down the M62 to a location where my blue badge will get me free parking and we will take things from there.
I reckon a Cavern Club moment might be in order.
