Liverpool Football Club!

While I plan on talking about carpentry, joinery and woodworking in the future, I wanted to talk about something that is just as close to my heart. Within the last few years, Liverpool FC have been doing well within football. Although I’m sure many Everton fans will be reading this blog (and I am sorry to disappoint you!), Liverpool fans have been disappointed within the last few years. We have found it so difficult to enjoy the club because of how badly we had been doing. Every time it seemed like we were supposed to win something big, something went seriously wrong. One example of this would be the infamous Gerrard slip, which brought an end to our closest title hopes in years.

However, over the last few years, things have drastically changed. Brendan Rodgers, Suarez, Sturridge and others had done such a great job that year, that we were able to sell Suarez for a large sum of money. While we were not able to purchase players that were just as good, we used that reputation to hire Klopp once we were able to. After that, things very slowly started to fall into place for us. While things are not at the level as any fan would like since we are yet to win titles, things are really improving to a level that is unheard of for us. This blog post was inspired by the recent 0-5 win over FC Porto, which we never thought would be possible.

Klopp has completed changed the team and the way the fanbase feel about the club. For a while, us as fans started to become very disappointed and upset about the club over transfers and the performances on the pitch. When you sell a player for such a large sum of money like we did with Suarez, we expected much better purchases than what we got. We expected to be doing better than we were for the next couple of seasons. But now, we have begun to really improve the way we always thought we would. We are now starting to look like title challengers, and for once in a long time we even have a chance to win the most prestigious club football trophy in existence.

We are all so grateful not only to Jurgen Klopp, but also the team that we have built over the last few years. We are becoming a team that is both respected and feared around the United Kingdom and even Europe. We are becoming a team that people would be worried to face, and we even have a chance at winning trophies we couldn’t for a long time. I am really looking forward to seeing where we can go from here, since it seems like Klopp is here to manage us for a long time. It also seems like the team itself will only continue to grow together, as they are all still young.

I know that this post doesn’t have much to do about builders, but Liverpool is a club that is very close to my heart as I have been a season ticket holder for so many years. It is so enjoyable to watch us play well and work towards a better future for the club. Please check out yesterday’s blog post if you can, but also try to check out some of the future building posts I will be creating!

The city of Liverpool!

Liverpool is such an important city of me. I have spent my whole life in this city and I have worked my whole life as a carpenter here, even when I have had offers to work elsewhere around the world. I rejected so many options to go to America, Asia, Australia and even South America to work with companies that specialise in multiple different projects. I have rejected projects such as building new homes around the world, creating niche products and new products created by designers and inventors – some of which have become global products – and I even rejected projects to work on wooden sculptures of historical figures from royal families. While I wish I could say that I chose to reject these options to continue my career at Liverpool Carpenters, the truth is I only rejected these projects because I wanted to stay in my home city.

I am a lifelong Liverpool FC fan (YNWA), and at some point, I want to make a blog post about my love for the club. I have also lived in every part of the city at some point in the last 40 years, and now I have managed to work my way up to a large house on the outskirts of the city that I feel fortunate to have. Since I am a carpenter, rather than purchasing pieces of furniture around the city I just created my own, and I have made so many products that are dedicated towards the football club. I have tried to engrave or carve the crest into any piece of furniture that I was able to if it wasn’t a major piece of furniture such as my bed, since I know how much my wife would hate it!

I am also a large collector of Liverpool FC related memorabilia and mementos. I would love to show some of my collection on the blog, but I am unsure of who would be reading and how dangerous it could be to post some of that stuff online. I have posted it on Liverpool FC forums though, so if you have ever been on one of these forums the chances are you have seen the collection already. Since I am a carpenter, all frames or podiums that I have created for the memorabilia has been created myself using exotic timber that I had to wait months to arrive. I am so proud of my collection because of how many years it took to get together. I created a whole room dedicated to Liverpool related things, and it is my favourite room in my house. I converted my basement for the sole purpose of having a storage space for all things.

I also once had the opportunity to work for the club for a short moment in time when I helped create some pieces of furniture for the hospitality section of Anfield, which became one of my career highlights and happiest moments of my life that has stuck with me to this day. It has become a large loft for me, and I am so happy with the way things have gone. I am going to talk a little bit about the carpentry projects that I have completed in the past, but do not be surprised to see a few blog posts about my club at the same time! I hope you stay in touch and look at some more of the posts I have created in the future!
