Ken and Kuyt
What a week it's been. After the amazing triumph at Anfield (4-1, count 'em) I was lucky enough to meet one of Liverpool's players after the game. Dirk Kuyt was there so I put my arm around him and he happily agreed to look uncomfortable. He's already becoming an Anfield legend in my eyes.
Fast forward 24 hours and Kuyt is replaced by Ken - another legend. Bill Roach (cos his real name isn't Ken as I was told before the interview) has been on 'The Street' for 47 years. That's a long, long time. We had a lovely chat in his dressing room during our visit. We talked about life at Corrie, olives, service stations, and a terrible loft incident involving Adam Rickitt.
Here's a picture of me and Ken - he's the one with the hair. I'm the one who looks amazed.
If your internet can handle it, check out another picture down here - it's me and Kuyt:
We've had a great week in the north of England. Soon I'll be getting a train to the south of England. But in a strange way, part of the north will still be with me (I bought some Polos from a newsagent in Manchester).
Kind regards bye bye
