“It’s a hard city to ride in. Taxi drivers. One-way streets. ARGH! Liverpool is not a fun city.” Adam Jones, AKA Chickn, is letting off steam. But, really, we don’t believe a word of it. Nah, he loves it. You can tell. The mean streets of L1, the cobbles of William Brown Street, the alleyways [...]
What would they be doing now? Raising kids? Turning over the garden after the winter? Planning their retirement? Wondering what next year’s Premiership season will bring? We can only imagine. And their families can only dream. Because the Hillsborough Tragedy isn’t really about then. It’s not about 3:06pm, or 3.15pm. It’s about now. It’s not [...]
We were courted by Channel 4 the other week. They were in town to film their TV advert. Horses bolting through the city streets: Liverpool and the Grand National: city and horse race. Blood brothers. “We’d like to offer you an exclusive”, purred Hannah Walker Senior Publicity Manager, Racing, suggesting we hotfooted it down to [...]
This year’s Run Liverpool Liverpool Marathon has been cancelled. BTR, formerly Run Liverpool have announced that this year’s event, scheduled for Sunday, 13th October has been shelved after talks with Liverpool City Council, who’ve asked organisers to once again reconsider the course structure in order to alleviate the impact on Liverpool waterfront roads and, to [...]
Social media and football often make uncomfortable bedfellows. With cases of players being hounded off their accounts due to fans – how shall we put it – remonstrating strongly with them and the months of January and August often becoming unbearable with mysterious agents claiming to be ITK, inflating gossip around possible signings (quick tip [...]
Should LFC own the rights to our Liver Bird? Yes, say those charged with ruling on logos (the OHIM – Office for Harmonisation in the Internal Market, if you please). No, say campaigners against the decision, who believe that the bird belongs to all of us. In 2008 Liverpool Football Club applied to the intellectual [...]
A great project in Liverpool needs your help – and all you have to do is listen to some great music and enjoy a beer.
When we write about football, we run for cover. But a new fanzine from the team that brought us Halcyon magazine made us realise we weren’t alone. Our jaded love of the beautiful game persists, but its grip is as tenuous as Southampton’s on the Premier League. With jaw-popping infographics spelling out the spiraling costs [...]
Ryder Cup captured your imagination? Here are seven places you can play golf in Liverpool – from crazy golf to some of the best courses in the world.
Every week, we’ll bring you a bona fide expert from the city to share their wisdom. This week, it’s a crash-course in all things cycling, from the good people at Parliament Street’s Giant bikes.
You want our opinion? Those medals were too big. We bet Rio’s are cooler. So we’re in training now – and you can be too. Liverpool can help you towards every UK gold-medal winning sport at London 2012. You’ve just got to know where to look…
The weather’s been pretty terrible this summer, but whenever the sun does drag its lazy arse out into the open, our city parks are a pretty nice place to be. And the council are trying to get more of us using them: news comes today that there’s going to be a new pedalo scheme whirring [...]
Grown men gallumping down the streets in lady frocks? Whatever next? It’s OK, it’s an Official Olympic Event, people.
It’s lovely to see Toxteth being given a push lately. A few weeks ago there was the excellent, grassroots-organised Toxteth Day, and now word comes to us that there’s a brand new thing to participate in. Toxteth Heritage Trail is set to kick off later this month, and it sounds rather great. It’s basically a [...]
Taking the utilitarian ping pong bat and transforming it into a thing of beauty – it’s all in a day’s work for Liverpool’s creative community. And, with your help, it’s a way to raise much needed funds for CALM too.
