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.

    Not the only team anymore! A bit of unintentional jinxing on your part, Ian. Despite yesterday's result Everton are looking in good shape. I'll be interested to see the job Koeman does moving forward.

    Thanks for the edits on my Tottenham article today, Ian. As for the word count I've been asked to write in-depth pieces upward of 1200 words now, hence why it is so long.

    Thanks for looking at my piece, Ian. Admittedly not a big soccer guy, so that was really helpful.
