Liverpool's history is one of seemingly boundless growth, "managed decline" and a fight back from the brink. The city as we know it was originally formed of just seven streets - all of which still exist today. From a fledgling new borough to one of the world's most prominent port cities, the city's development is deeply rooted in transatlantic trade. We took a look back at how seven streets grew into a mega city and the story of Liverpool's incredible evolution. Seven streets and the birth of "Livpul" Liverpool's remarkable history goes back much further than the seven streets that spawned the city we know today. However, those seven streets did mark the origins of the city of Liverpool - when a new town was laid out near the Pool, a creek which gave Liverpool its name. In 1207, King John established a new town of seven streets - "Livpul". This provided him with a safe harbour and attracted settlers from nearby areas to live in the new borough. For some people, this fledgling new … [Read more...] about How seven streets became a mega city

0 Have your say Rugby was the only profession he’d known, but Ally Hogg found sporting skills were a perfect fit as a Barclays wealth manager. Ally Hogg has made the move from 48-cap Scotland rugby international to the role of wealth manager at Barclays, a transition dubbed “flanker to banker”.He has evidently settled in well to the banking sector, moving seamlessly from the changing room to the boardroom.

When you begin to list off Man City's wealth of midfield talent you'd be forgiven for forgetting about Fabian Delph. Especially considering the Bradford-born midfielder hasn't been a regular feature this season. Delph has made just the 19 appearances - with an average game time of 59.4 minutes per game - and he has been left out of the squad just as many times as he's appeared. It's hardly surprising considering the dazzling talent he has to compete with in midfield or even at left-back after Aleks Zinchenko has emerged as the stand-out stand-in for the perpetually injured Benjamin Mendy. It hasn't been a good season for Delph when he has managed to get on the pitch, either. He started at left-back in all three of City's Premier League defeats this season to Chelsea, Crystal Palace and Leicester City - the latter of which he was shown a straight red card late on for a dangerous tackle. In his last outing in the FA Cup against Swansea - his first game for seven weeks - he was dreadful. … [Read more...] about The case for keeping Fabian Delph at Man City

At first glance you wouldn't think he was in the thick of one of most enthralling and tightest title races in recent times. His Manchester City side face Chelsea later today in the latest instalment of what has become a genuine assault on the quadruple, with his side battling to retain their Premier League crown whilst all still in all three cup competitions.
