It was Reading wasn’t it?

I lived in Toxteth during the riots back in 1982. It was a dangerous place then, seems it stil is.

Main thing is Wisdom’s OK and should recover without long term problems. Good luck to him.

No they had played Reading and he had gone home to drop some presents off for family

Do footballers not understand that we are on lockdown. Taking presents to a relative in Liverpool is not an essential journey. He should be disciplined for this - but guess what, that's not going to happen.

We arent told to only make essential journies anymore but excellent use of victim blaming.

1981. Only reason I know this is because I wrote my dissertation on it at Liverpool Uni 10 years later. You're right though, a rum place!!

Why would his parents move from Leeds to Toxteth and then remain there when their son left Liverpool?

To be fair, many of the houses in Toxtexth are lovely looking. Well they were 30 years ago. Pretty much built on The Slave Trade though. Bristol the same

Beautiful buildings at one time home to Solicitors, Doctors and the likes. Upper Parliament Street and other streets in the area boast some magnificent buildings similar to what you'll find in Mayfair and Kensington that today would cost £Millions.
Many now in flats and bed sits but I did have cause to go there some years ago to look at some properties and the area seemed ok.
