    The team from Gillette Soccer Saturday featuring Johnny Phillips are coming to film about COLFC on Saturday 10th December at the home game with Holker OB, with the film going out the following Saturday 17th December.


    Johnny will be looking to interview Directors, Management, Players & Partisans.


    As well as the home game with Holker and Sky Sports visiting, the 10th is also our Christmas Party, so maybe Johnny & the Team will join us at the Picturedrome to carry on filming.


    Anyway, the 10th is gonna be a boss day and perhaps this could be our first 1000+ crowd as we are sure the Partisans (and especially Junior Partisans) will want to come along and be a part of the filming, so long as the great British weather doesn't ruin it!

  2. City of Liverpool Football Club.




    Tuesday 4th October 2016


    Home (Bootle FC) v Oswestry Town 7.45pm kick off.


    Best Winter Coat 

    As everybody knows, Scousers invented football fashion.

    Until our boys started going off to Europe in the mid 1970's, everyone at football matches was dressed abysmally. Budgie jackets, Birmo bags (kecks) and even 3 star jumper's were spotted every now and then?

    Within a few short years, everyone was dressing like us (well sort of!) and then claiming to have started the trend, but everybody knows the true strory.

    Since then terrace fashions have developed, but one thing does not change; scousers want to look good at the match, starting with the trainees and the jeans, but most importantly with the Winter Coats.

    So COLFC is running a Winter Coat Competition, to find the best dressed COLFC supporter this winter.

    We have a panel of experts to consider entries including Jockey (owner of scouse super-brand Transalpino), Thomas Keiner (German national who moved to Liverpool because of scouse terrace fashions) Chairmao (once very dapper but now too fat to carry off anything good) & Daniel Nicholson (owner of Distant Echo & Steeple Pine).

    We will be awarding points for Style, Artistic Impression, Accesorising & Scouse Attitude and invite entries via Photogragh only at any COLFC match home or away.

    We will display some of the entries on this page moving forward, so send your photographs to contact@colfc.co.uk using the subject "Winter Coat"

    The winner may well win some kind of Prize, but much more importantly will be the Kudos of being COLFC's best dressed supporter (both Adult & Junior prizes will be awarded).

    Rare night off work for me, get yer coats out for the lads...

    Dependant upon weather conditions of course???


  3. This expansion will increase the capacity to 53,783. Looking at attendances at Anfield over the years the last time it was this big was on 3rd May 1977 against the Mancs, with 53046 turning up. Taken almost 40 years to see Anfield this big again.

    Our highest recorded gates


    FA Cup - 61,905 Vs Wolves 

    League - 58,757 Vs Chelsea

    Europe - 55,104 Vs Barcelona

  4. The QPR V Liverpool picture.


    This is QPR away in 74, we won 1.0 Brian Hall scored early on. This was the open end, that is now the home end. We just about got in thousands of red's turned up, the gates got locked early on.

    An announcement was made over the tannoy that nurses from the local hospital would be walking around the pitch holding bed sheets for people to throw money into to help them. A couple of bottles got lashed at the police as they escorted the nurses the police picked on the lad wearing the red hat, it wasn't him and he got lashed out. It was some lads standing behind him, because we where standing behind them. Lad in the top left corner also used to go all the away's as well, think he was from Thornton.

  5. Quite a scrap in The Kop at the end of that game, I seem to remember.


    On the left hand side (as you stood on it) where the Bluenoses congregated back then.

    We stood in our usual place in the middle of them, it was f***ing horrible both times they scored. Loads of trouble at the end of the match, I recall 3 or 4 coppers trying to restore some kind of order, argy bargy walking down to County Road to get the bus home.    

  6. Who would have thought we'd of sold out a friendly game at Wembley.  Do you think our ticket office would have copied with that demand? 


    The "New" Main stand is a little behind with it's completion, I did hear of the possibility of us playing our first 3 or 4 games all away from home to enable the builders to pull their fingers out.
