Liverpool Uncovered: Tier 1 Transfer Tales

Sometimes the people that care about you the most tell you lies. Yes. It’s true. Or, I might be lying right now, because I do care, dear reader. I really do... Sometimes my wife tells me that my hair looks like it’s growing back or that I’ll eventually fit into my pants again.
