TEAMtalk: How did you come to support Liverpool and what are your favourite memories from your time as a fan?
Rich: I’m 14 years younger than my eldest brother and they’ve always supported Liverpool. We’re just a Liverpool family through and through.
TEAMtalk: Who have been your favourite five players for your club? (Historically or currently)
Rich: Very tough! [Steve] Gerrard, [Xabi] Alonso and [Fernando] Torres were amazing of course. There have been so many greats but I’ve got to drop Torres after he left for Chelsea! I love the current squad so much.
So Gerrard, TAA [Trent Alexander-Arnold], [Sadio] Mané, [Jordan] Hendo [Henderson] and King Kenny [Dalglish].
Van Dijk injury concerns
TEAMtalk: What do you make of the current team? What are your hopes for the season?
Rich: Up until the derby last week I had us winning the league and a shot at the Champions League. But with Allison out and Van Dijk out for the season I’m more worried. I’m sure they’ll keep pushing though.
TEAMtalk: Everyone has a soft spot for another team. Who’s yours and why?
Rich: I’ve always had a soft spot for Newcastle, I love the city and they’re a great club.
TEAMtalk: What’s going on with you as a musician at the moment?
Rich: We’ve just released our third album mid pandemic so like everyone we’re waiting until we can tour it! We’re working on new music in the studio and keeping positive!
