About

I'm back!

My name is Barney Corkhill, I'm 20 years old and currently in my second year at the University of Sheffield studying Journalism. I'm a big Liverpool fan when it comes to football, but also enjoy playing and watching rugby, tennis, cricket, golf and pretty much any other sport really!

Apart from sport, my other passion in life is music. I love playing and listening to it and I'm a big fan of the oldies! The Kinks, The Who, Oasis, Elvis etc. are all favourites of mine but no-one comes close to the greatest band of all time: The Beatles.

As you can probably tell by that list of bands I enjoy looking back at bygone eras, and I'm very much the same when it comes to sports. I try and educate myself as much as I can on the history of the sports I enjoy, and all the great players and moments that have stood out.

I used to write pretty regularly for Bleacher Report and hope to start up again soon, perhaps resurrecting a few of the series I began. The ones I particularly like are the "Greatest Ever" series, which always provides good debate, the "A Tribute To..." series, which looks at the greats of various sports, and Barney Corkhill's Unofficial World Club Championships (current holders being Chelsea).

Others include Player Duels, Great Quotes and Liverpool Legends! Feel free to look back in my archives for such gems as "Footballs Funniest Moments", "The Worst Haircuts in Football History" and "The Wierdest Olympic Sports in History".

If anyone needs to contact me just post a note on my bulletin board or email me at barneycorkhill@hotmail.co.uk and I'll get back to you!

Most importantly of all, I hope you enjoy my articles! If you do, rate them, leave a comment and if you like my work enough then by all means become a fan!
