I’ve since learned how to rein it in. These days if I’m asked to write a piece about the happiest moment of my life, or how I’d spend the perfect day, I veer away from Liverpool FC, even though it is right there, smack in the middle of the answer. When I was thirteen, I couldn’t see the need and didn’t have any meaningful experiences outside of my obsession to offer an alternative. A situation which used to anger teachers, none more so than the one who took us for English – an acute Small Man Syndrome sufferer, with a whining voice straight out of Midlands polytechnic training college, who tried to assert himself through shouting, dishing out the strap or making us write out the preface to some 1930s grammar book.

No Kopite was on a superiority kick. No Blue Nose had a boulder on his shoulder. Silverless years they may have been, but they were golden days nonetheless. Away from home we weren’t much better than Burnley, at home we were better than Real Madrid. The players, galvanized by Shankly’s tongue and the ‘This Is Anfield’ sign he had placed in the tunnel, steamrollered opponents into submission, and the Kop was the greatest collective mass of passion, wit and song in any walk of British life. I stood 100 yards away but still felt a surge of pride at ten-to-three every week when the teams were read out, in anticipation of what was to come.

I ached to be there, telling everyone that tomorrow Liverpool would do what Preston had failed to do the year before and win the Cup. But Sheila kept me at home, and like the ungrateful little prick I was, I hated her for it. It had been her idea to send my dad down to Jack Sharp’s sports shop in Whitechapel to buy the full Liverpool kit of red shirt, white shorts (with red line down either side) and red-and-white socks as a Cup final present. She’d been the one who sewed the oval piece of cloth bearing the Liver Bird on to the shirt.
