An Armchair Odyssey

Part 4 2004-2008 Thrilling highs, terrifying lows. The story continues… Parts one , two and three also available. The one great law of life is that it usually ends up going to form. Occasional glitches in the matrix are eye catching but rare enough to ignore. FC Porto winning the Champions League felt like a […]

All About Andy: Ten Years On

Yes, that’s right. Ten years. Don’t ask me where the time has gone, because I don’t have a clue. I wanted to get this back out into the world after a long absence. I had grand ideas of a new colour grade and spectacular new graphics but alas, I have been unable to do this […]

Part 7 2017-2020 Parts One, Two, Three, Four, Five and Six are here. I guess a lot of the subtext here is about my being a spoilt brat with commitment issues. I can’t say for sure if Liverpool were any way the cause of my life’s disappointment heretofore. Some of the most depressed people I’ve […]

An Armchair Odyssey

Part 6 : 2014-2017 Parts One, Two, Three, Four and Five are here. 2014 was probably the most exhilarating year Liverpool Football Club ever saw. Some older fans could plump for either 1988 or 1979 but for me it was this one. For about three solid months Liverpool played football at a speed few have […]

Part 5 2008-2014 Parts 1, 2, 3 and 4 available here It occurred to me in the last instalment that I was falling into the trap of documenting far too many events and memories in the Rafa Benitez era. A massive, indulgent word count that probably failed as entertainment but perhaps helped me cathartically. In […]

My first album(s)

Not everyone will admit to what they actually bought first. But I will. Homer: I realised that being with my family is more important than being cool. Bart: Dad. What you just said was powerfully uncool. Homer: You know what the song says. “It’s hip to be square.” Lisa: That song is so lame. Homer: […]

Part 3 1999-2004 My ongoing reminiscing of a recently ended journey. Part 1 and Part 2 available here. Note: I have updated Part 2 to include Jack Charlton’s last stand at Anfield in 1995. RIP to the great man. And so into the new millennium. I will try to keep the catharsis to a minimum […]

My life as a longish distance Liverpool fan Part 2: 1994-1999 I hope you enjoyed Part 1. I will keep the introduction to Part 2 a bit shorter this week, perhaps only allowing for some choice scene setting.  I was still madly in love with the game in the summer of 94. And why not? […]

An Armchair Odyssey

My life as a ‘longish’ distance fan of Liverpool Part 1 (1988-94) Introduction Write about what you know some say. What about what you love? What sometimes seems unrequited love. Until you remember that a football team is under no obligation to love you back. The lessons of not only unrequited love are to be […]
