About mcdonaldtaf

Who is this mcdonaldtaf idiot?

First of all let me dispel some myths:
  • I am not a writer for liverpool-kop.com, I have had two of my posts re-produced there a long time ago
  • I am not Jaimie Kanwar (thank god)
  • I am not an idiot because I trusted that Rafa was the right man to take us forwards
  • I don’t like country music

Ok, ok I do like country music. But the rest is true!

I am a 34 year old (currently unemployed) manager [ONLINE CV]. I have a strong management background going back 15 years in SME’s and among my skills I have strong I.T., finance, marketing and general management ‘expertise’ (loosely speaking).

In October 2009 I started blogging about Liverpool Football Club and the bug just got me. Now I write, in addition to this blog,  regularly for The Tomkins Times and Well Red Magazine.

I have a Masters degree (MSc.) in management, which is quite extraordinary given I left school with very little in the way of qualifications. However, I have been hard working and applied myself well. I have also benefited from working with exceptional Managing Directors throughout my career. All of them have shaped me into the manager I am today – and now I in turn (hopefully) teach the managers of tomorrow.

I (used to – and will again when I can afford a gym membership) weight train 3/4 times a week (although I’m not as strong or big as I would like), play squash and football once a week. I generally run every other day. I am a ‘chunky unit’ rather than a toned skinny geezer. I was at one stage 22 and half stone and looked like a cartoon character with a big round face. I lost 5 stone a few years ago though and now live in eternal fear that ‘bellys gonna get me’!

I have three kids (two I don’t live with) Kadon, Kai and Abbie Rose. Abbie Rose is the latest addition and as the girl she is being locked in her room till she is 35! I live with my girlfriend (or life partner as she insists on me saying) Sarah who has changed my life over the last couple of years and made me the happiest I have ever been. Finally settled down!

Urm I guess that’s it! Feel free to ask any other questions you have, although if you’ve read this far I would be surprised.

    Your post about SOS was spot on – Over at rawk we are creating a fan backed neutral campaign, and have created a twitter. Our aim is to educate our fans on the two owners and how much trouble our club is actually in.

    Follow us on twitter- retweet our address. The more followers we have the stronger this becomes.

    Liverpool FC is being bled dry – YOU can do something about it.

    Save Liverpool FC

    Finally got it together to check out ‘Invincible bastion’ you’re now on my favourites bar along with TTT

    Hope the search for work is proving fruitful not frustrating
