We Strike for Change, for Climate Change

Last Friday, 15th March, we witnessed the biggest climate change strike yet. With 100 countries seeing their students walk out of schools, including 60 towns and cities in the UK, students across the globe stood up for their future, hoping that the politicians and world leaders would take notice. The actions of the industry giants have rapidly been depleting the earth’s natural resources, as well as the ozone layer. We all know the impacts of greenhouse gases and how we should recycle some plastic, but there needs to be more than that if we have any chance of slowing...

Hoping For A Giant Killing

Liverpool fans are making the one hour train journey down to Wolverhampton this evening to see our barmy army face this year’s title contenders, and what are we hoping for? A show of determination, fight and nothing short of an upset worthy of Gary Lineker parading around the BBC 1 studios in his boxers. It is true, we are the underdogs, as we always are. We are a team that nobody takes that seriously because we come from a city with a strange accent. Our stadium is an unfinished custard bowl sat on an island opposite an ASDA. We...
