About

I am an experienced sports journalist, based in the wonderful city of Liverpool in the United Kingdom - home of The Beatles, two cathedrals, exquisite architecture and two of the biggest teams in world soccer.

I have been fortunate enough to work for some of the biggest media outlets in the UK, including the Press Association, Trinity Mirror and News International.

And I have interviewed high-profile sporting figures such as David Beckham, Mike Tyson, Johan Cruyff and Sir Alex Ferguson during my career.

I am an Everton fan but appreciate the joy and beauty of soccer played by all great teams and players.

Most recently, I covered football and powerlifting at London 2012 for the Olympic and Paralympic News Service.

Now I'm delighted to join the Bleacher Report team as a sports writer and looking forward to communicating with fellow supporters and new soccer fans from across the globe.

    Oh, and there was definitely a furore round Van Gaal's sacking given the leaks and such!

    Thanks Ian - I meant the league tie at West Ham so I've put that back in. We lost 3-2 there in the penultimate league game this season.

    Thanks for the edits on my Tottenham piece today, Ian. Was definitely a tough night all-round for Spurs. The thought that some are taking a bit too much delight in them missing out has crossed my mind too. We shall see what is ahead...
