Greek style columns unearthed on Camp Hill, Woolton, Liverpool?

Anyone know anything about this? We happened upon a newly uncovered site whilst walking back from The Victoria. Does this mean we've been walking past these antiquities for years and never knowing they were there in the overgrown undergrowth?

Season tickets have arrived, season tickets have arrived, season tickets have arrived...

Another year following Everton, always great when they drop through the letterbox...ask me again in November whether it's such a joyous event.

Still, today....whilst the hardcore blues are in Dundee and most of my season ticket friends are in France doing voluntary work in Lourdes with Liverpool Hospitalite I am sitting back in Hunts Cross with a smile on my face.

Time to take down our German Euro 2012 wallchart

Got this in Maximilians near Koblenz on a recent stag do. My wife has filled it out in German to keep in with the theme.

Great tournament overall and you have to say the best team won, the pity is that perhaps it didn't get the final it deserved because A: Italy going down to 10 men and B: The 2nd best team in the tournament, Germany, failing to turn up for the semi-final.

For England, given the awful preparation, getting out of the group as leaders represents a success but to fall to a penalty shoot-out yet again grates on your nerves.
