Today I finally did something I’ve been promising myself to do for years – go down to the match and try and get some photos of the pre-match buildup. Pictured above is Brian – as well as his dozens of badges, he’s also got 85 Liverpool shirts at home. Brian was sound.

The big man still gets a lot of attention….

The food sellers must love the early kick offs – pretty much everyone was chomping down on some food.

The souvenir sellers were also doing a good trade, LFC badges and scarves a-plenty.

Liked this when I saw it – thanks to the Red for posing for me.

Quite pleased with the results of my first match outing – quite like the idea of doing the same for a night match so I’ll have to come back for a European match League Cup game 🙂
