    Can't believe June Whitfield was 93 ! Peter Thompson the hero of many a Liverpool fan I know. Similar type style to Steve Heighway if I recall but the Kop don't sing about Thompson !

    It was always a delight to read his work and it feels somewhat demeaning to apply the prefix of 'sports' before 'writer' to describe him.
