      I will be at the game on Monday night though and will be drinking beforehand wherever Cas (Ms G) and anybody else off here who is going is? I'll probably be going out in the city after it also.



      See you Monday night WAHS  8)

      I'm up in Liverpool Saturday, back home Sunday, then back again for the Newcastle game and then finally be back for the Hillsborough memorial.

      Safe trip Firepool  ;D

      I spent my first night in Liverpool. First thing I did when I arrived, after checking into my hotel, is went to the Liverpool FC store in Liverpool One and bought some things. Today I am going to tour the stadium and whatever else I find to do. Hope to see some of you on Monday.

      Wish I had the time get up to Liverpool, but be many a red from here to guide you round Liverpool as well.  Have a great time.

      Hope things are getting better for you. It would have been nice to meet up, but I am sure I will meet quite a few people.

      The guy that was going to show me around is busy the rest of the time I am here. He took me out last night. I think I can manage but it is always nice to have local show you around as they don't stick to the tourist spots. From what I have seen it is a beautiful city.

      I went to Anfield yesterday to do the tour and had my picture taken with the  cup. I also went into the store and bought auite a few things. I actually got  an Agger jersey for £8.

      Today I went on a 3 hour guided tour around the city. I have been enjoying myself in this city. I think I am falling in love with city.  The people are very friendly.

      I'll be having a couple of beers in town first with a friend before heading to The Arkles so you're more than welcome to meet up with us and jump a cab with us to Anfield.

      That would be nice. Let me know.

      I saw you posted the slug and lettuce is 50% on Monday. Where I am staying is close to that, might have to check it out.

      Oh cool that looks some hotel. So yeah Slug and Lettuce not even a 100 yards from you.

      If you walk to the Slug and take a right at the top of that street on the left is a restaurant called the San Carlo. You can nip in for a drink and you will see pictures of lots and lots of LFC players and other celebs. It's the go to place for all of our players. I've seen Kyrgiakos, Carragher, Glen Johnson twice, Pepe Reina, Ian Rush and Philippe Coutinho in there in the past.

      Have you done the whole Beatles thing or aren't you a fan?

      Wouldn't be arsed with the Beatles tour to be honest, all four lived in various location from Dingle, Allerton, Woolton and Speke/Hunts Cross.
      Ringo probably occupied the same terraced house the longest in Dingle which itself was earmarked for demolition, there is a campaign to save it but there are streets of similar houses due to come down.
      Lennon's house, or to be specific his Aunt Mimi's is in Menlove Avenue and is a National Trust property, Strawberry Fields is nearby, that is probably the one to see, you might bump into a celeb viewing it - among others Bob Dylan was there recently.
      A trip to Mathew St is essential, although the original Cavern has gone the place oozes character and there is a club further up the street identical to the Cavern the Beatles played, the frontage of the old Cavern site is still in place and a replica set up is on the go.
      There's loads to see and do in Liverpool you'll never find the time for it all.
      Have a great time kid.
