City pub hosts LFC German fans' meeting.

GERMAN football players and sports commentators were among the speakers at the first meeting of the German LFC Supporters Club.

The love affair of supporting Liverpool was discussed by more than 60 "German Reds" at their first meeting in the city on Saturday.

Fans from across Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Holland converged at the Wigan game before heading to the Ship and Mitre pub for the branch meeting.

Graham Agg, club secretary and the only Liverpool resident of German Reds, said the first meeting was "superb" after Liverpool's home win over Wigan. He said: "It was fantastic and we had guest speakers from the shareliverpoolfc campaign and Spirit of Shankly. We also heard from sports writers and Herr Udo Platzer, who played in the German Bundesliga and is a big LFC supporter.

"He spoke about his love affair with Liverpool when they were dominating Europe in the 1970s and 80s."
