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.

    No problem, Ian! I'll bear that in mind for future articles. Chelsea were also referred to as the Blues in the piece and I don't think anyone has referred to them as the Pensioners since the '50s haha. Nice one.

    Sorry for the false alarm, Ian. Figured out that the problem was from the web page. Really sorry.
