Don’t you just love it when we’re completely written off by all the media and opposition fans? I swear, I love it because I know we’ll play really well. half -time Istanbul they all did it. They did it when we were beaten by Burnley a few years ago and we won European Cup. Everyone says sack Rafa and we beat Europe’s best team. Who needs murky saturday afternoons at Barnsley when you can be playing at world’s showcase game in Moscow. Priorities, Priorities. Yeah – sure Mancs and Chavs will prove yet again that they’re better than us at beating Bolton and Blackburn, but we’ll be there when it matters. Cream always rises to the top and Liverpool yet again prove that they’re world beaters…Trust in Rafa. Rafa’s got his Dirk Kuyt!!! YNWA!
The heyday when this video was taken is long over… Luckily enough, I made it to Istanbul for the Champions League Final in 2005 when Liverpool beat AC Milan in the greatest game of football ever to have been played. It was the best time of my life. For a Liverpool fan , it’s all about winning trophies and they don’t come any bigger than ole big ears… (Read in the facebook group about Hungary for Turkey, my trip to Istanbul http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=8280656361) I am at odds with myself about posting Liverpool stuff in my blog. At the end of the day, whereas I know there are many avid fans out there. , I realise that for the majority of you, you support other clubs and the last thing you wish to read about is Liverpool FC. Anyway, Liverpool play a huge part in my life so I’d be dishonest if I didn’t include the occasional article here in the Wez G blog… Just grin and bear it. It helps hearing about football success from time to time . And your clubs might be able to learn from the greatness of Liverpool. They are, after all, indisputably, the best side in British football. I can just see the grin on Manc faces as they read this. Yes – Last weekend Liverpool lost to lowly Barnsley in the FA Cup. I admit it – we were very poor. Yes – we’re having a bad season. We are still a club in reconstruction. Europe is our only hope this season. And Europe it is tonight. AC Milan’s blue cousins, Inter, are the best side in Europe this season. They are the only side in Europe to still be unbeaten. They strike the fear of God into me. But we have faced adversity before. I just hope that our players produce their A-game tonight. We need the hunger of Stevie G , the ruthlessness of Carragher and the sheer dominance of Fernando Torres. We need the manager to have a clear head. I am a huge fan of Rafa and will never call for his head. NEVER. Not after Istanbul. He can lose to Accrington Stanley every week as far as I’m concerned. Trust in Rafa is the motto. I can, however, see how he’s under pressure and a poor result for Liverpool to night could mean curtains for the gaffer. Since Paco left…
As this blog progresses you’ll get to learn more about Shuffle and what exactly we do. It isn’t always very clear, even to me, and I’ve been running Shuffle since 1995. Anyway, 2008 sees the year where we are focussing a lot of our energy on Shuffle artist management. One of the gems we deal with here is Tricia Lee Kelshall. Tricia is a Trinidadian singer who currently resides in Texas, USA. Her initial steps to stardom were with Soca band, Second Imij. Following that Tricia did two world tours with the Stereo MCs, an awesome band , I’m sure you’ll agree. Tricia’s entrance to the house music scene involved a collaberation with Bristol best house music band, Way Out West. Mindcircus was a massive hit for them and the icing on the cake to their Intensify album. Tricia went on to tour the world with Way Out West before settling down with her new husband and starting a family. Tricia is now back on the scene. And all shuffled up! We’re pleased to be working with such class and have been focussing on ensuring that Tricia will be working alongside some of the best producers and remixers in the industry for future releases. There is a new myspace for Tricia here… http://www.myspace.com/tricialeekelshall There will be forthcoming projects, i’m pleased to say, and the reason I’m all excited today is that I’ve had a sneak preview of some of the forthcoming work. All I can say is that you can expect 2008 to be a good year for Tricia. I wouldn’t be at all surprised if she doesn’t release one of the house music hits of the year and that isn’t just blind pride and bias talking. I am an experienced DJ and assure you that there is some good stuff on its way… I obviously can’t say too much on the detail at the moment until releases are confirmed but I will release public information through the Shuffle websites as soon as possible. SO Stay Tuned and we look forward to giving you aural pleasure! Here is Mindcircus by Way Out West featuring Tricia Lee Kelshall

I’m still unsure exactly what to be doing with my blog… Do I keep it to just music? Or football? Or everything in my life? My idea of a blog is an online diary, somewhere to air your thoughts. I guess sometimes that thinking can be controversial. The blog is new but news happened yesterday and a new European country was ‘created.’ Now gentlemen should never discuss religion or politics and one of my aims in life is to carry the grace of a true English gentleman, a dying breed in today’s morally mixed-up world. but there we go… rules are made to be broken… I wanted to briefly talk about Kosovo as I went to Serbia in 2005 and it made a deep impact on me. I passed through on my way back from Istanbul in 2005 post-champions league final. The full story of that journey can be read here on the facebook group ‘Hungary for Turkey’ http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=8280656361 I met lots of Serbs and they were particularly welcoming. There is a lot of good history between Britain and Serbia apart from the NATO airstrikes during the Yugoslavian conflict in the 1990s. Racially, the Serbs claim to be true Celts which with me being from Wales, lent them an affinity to me… My ideas on the Balkan conflict weren’t clear but I know that in general in the Western press the Serbs come across somewhat as the villains of the piece. Now , all I can say is that there were undoubtedly some serious atrocities committed during and indeed after the whole conflict. It was one of the messiest civil wars in European history. However, all sides committed atrocities. Such, unfortunately , is the nature of war. I read and studied quite a lot on Serbia and can recommend the book by Tim Judah: The Serbs for some decent background knowledge. Regarding Kosovo, I was told stories by many natives during my stay., in particular an Orthodox monk, who sold me some icon cards of the Kosovan monasteries, at Belgrade train station. The Serbian people were saddened by the ongoing international presence in their ‘historical backyard’. Most of Serbia’s precious historical buildings and monuments are located in Kosovo and it is a very important historical area to their proud nation. What happened is that the Ethnic Albanian population living in Kosovo through a higher natural growth rate, became the dominant…
