Not-Crap Journalism – The Scouser’s Story


She’s a Liverpool fan. They’re odds on to break a thirty year gap since their last League Championship. I’m a Manchester United fan. We went twenty-six years, and the Scousers’ long wait has been a source of fun for twenty-nine years. Truthfully, I wanted them to never win it again in my lifetime, and I got very nervous when they looked likely to do it in twenty-five.

But we beat them at that, and now I can accept it’s going to happen and not really care.

As for this piece, I know how Hannah Jane Parkinson feels and I don’t begrudge her a moment of it. She speaks for all of us in one manner or another (except that Leicester’s story in 2016 will always be better than yours).
