Don’t worry if you missed my appearance yesterday on BBC Radio Merseyside – it is on their Listen Again feature.
I spent a lovely half hour chatting to Jimmy McCracken about songwriting, Woody Guthrie, Malcolm Pinnegar of The Dirty Thirty, and AFC Liverpool.
There’s something amazing happening tonight. FC United of Manchester, a club that didn’t even exist 5 years ago, are playing in the 1st round of the FA Cup against Rochdale.
AFC Liverpool, the worker-owned football club I set up last year, is free entry tomorrow (Sat 5 Dec, 3pm) for UNISON members. Just bring your union card.
The club is also joining in the climate campaign by wearing shirts the same blue colour of The Wave Climate Change Campaign for the day.
When I set up AFC Liverpool two years ago I wanted to build a club for Liverpool supporters who were disenfranchised by what is regarded as “the modern game.”
They were disenfranchised in two ways.
I tend to think in terms of goals. Stuff I want to achieve. Not necessarily just personal goals, but the social goals too.
So I’ll invent the idea of AFC Liverpool then make it happen.
