Five from Louis Berry

How did you come to support your club and what are your favourite memories from your time as a fan?

Supporting Liverpool comes from my grandad. Favourite memories are obviously Istanbul and seeing players like Suarez, Carragher and Gerrard playing at Anfield

Who have been your biggest heroes during your time supporting the club?

Carragher, Gerrard, Suarez, Mascherano and Alonso.

What do you make of the current team? What are your hopes for the season?

I think there is some really good quality in the team, but it needs to be arranged properly and work done on team cohesion. We could do with some new quality players in and offloading some others. We need to aim for a top-four position.

Everyone has a soft spot for another team. Who’s yours and why?

Everton – I know there is a lot of rivalry, but I grew up watching the football with my grandad who was born in 1934 and comes from a time before any bitterness. He brought me up to enjoy seeing both teams do well…but ultimately to swear my allegiance to the Reds.

What’s going on with you at the moment?

I’m currently in the studio writing then I have my own headline tour in January before going to America to record the album.

Last week
