Liverpool Football Club

It was this piece on the BBC web site that inspired me to write about my team – Liverpool Football Club. The article titled Doctor Who, JFK & Beatlemania – West Ham’s last win at Anfield was scant consolation that we, Liverpool fans always refer to the team as ‘we’, had been soundly beaten at home 3 – 0 by West Ham. But it reminded me of the halcyon days at Anfield back in the 60s and 70s. The home ground of LFC is known as Anfield. During the reign of Shankly then Bob Paisley, it became known as Fortress Anfield such was the tremendous win rate at home. The last time West Ham had won at Anfield prior to last weekend was September 1963! The Spion Kop, Anfield’s fabled ‘home end’ for the most fanatical of our supporters, had not yet adopted “You’ll Never Walk Alone” as their anthem as Gerry and the Pacemakers, a Liverpool band, had still to  release their version of the song  from ‘Carousel’.

Just like many actors I am ‘resting between gigs’! I am not an actor. I write. In my case that really means I keep on looking for paid writing work!
There are places on the internet where you can get hired as a freelancer. That’s good. But what I find frustrating is some of the inane questions that hirers ask you to answer when submitting an application.
This is a classic example and how I replied…..
