Back to Anfield. Off topic

43 years since I was last here🙄. In my miss spent youth following LFC all round Britain and Europe. Changed a bit since I was last here😂. Last time I was on the Kop, standing and getting crushed. This time, corporate seats, free food and drinks. Thanks to a trip my lovely daughter arranged for me.

Yeah it was. Driven there it a big Jag. Park just outside ground. Oh boy, different from the old days of walking from lime street along the Scotland road😉

Now you just need to drop Big Hints to your daughter about Wimbledon tickets for Mum & Dad!

My wife goes to Wimbledon every year. And a lot of other tournaments world wide. Did the Australian open this year😂. Last of her grand slams she had never done. I’m not a tennis fan. Although I did go to the Oz one and Abu Dhabi.

I went to school in Wimbledon& went every year until about maybe ten years ago ....when most of my business associates also retired & we stopped getting invited to corporate events....can't be doing with it now.....too crushed .& crowded ........the last straw was a teenage boy sitting behind me in the regular seats resting his feet on my shoulders...which when I asked him to remove them - his father butted in to say he wasn't hurting anybody. Soon put him right that "Oh yes he was & my shoulders were not his son's foot rest!" ..so remove them,now! Tetchy old Biddies unite!

Now we get in the bubbly & smoked salmon sandwiches & watch it at home in comfort! But I do still like going to some of the smaller European tournaments, & they have a lot in Florida....as long as you avoid the hurricanes!

Lol. You may have sat near my wife without knowing it then😂. Dont think she would put her feet up on your shoulder though😉. She is thinking of Miami next year and Monaco. She likes going to smaller ones and goes to the practice courts and chats to the players.

Sounds like a fantastic day, I'm envious too! And what a result eh?

Lol. With a online name like Anne Field, you’ve got to be a Liverpool supporter😂. Apologies if that’s your real name , in which case your parents must have been fans😉

Brilliant! Glad you had a good time.
