Premier league Post.
WE MIGHT still be waiting for the summer to start in earnest, but the football season is back with us and the Premier League kicks off this weekend.
Everton will be at home to Arsenal on Saturday, and, on Sunday, Liverpool travel to Tottenham.
Will Everton be able to build on their impressive fifth place from last season? And can Liverpool make that final push to claim a first league title since 1990, especially now the influential Xabi Alonso has gone? Whatever happens over the coming season, you can rest assured that the Daily Post will follow the fortunes of both of Merseyside's Premier League clubs kick by kick, home and away.
And although our loyalties will always be with the two big city clubs, we'll be following the fortunes of all the other North West clubs in the Premier League, plus Tranmere Rovers as they learn life under new manager John Barnes.
Don't miss Post Match, in Monday's Daily Post, for detailed reports and analysis of what should be an exciting weekend.
MR GIBSON, of Anfield, writes to point out an error in Peter Elson's feature yesterday, in which Confederate paymaster general Charles Prioleau is pursued by the US Consul in Liver pool, Thomas H Dudley.
"This was a fascinating article about a very important part of US and Merseyside history, but Peter has Prioleau being pursued by Dudley after the American Civil War in 1857 - this can't be right as the Civil War didn't start until 1861," says Mr Gibson.
"The article also reminds us how we can encourage a lot more tourism from the US because of our amazing links with this war which had lasting effects on the US, and therefore the wor ld."
As for the date, Peter owns up to a typing error: Dudley's pursuit of Prioleau was indeed after the Civil War, in 1867, not 1857.
THE views of our readers are very important to us at the Liverpool Daily Post and we give our readers' letters great prominence in the paper. Last Thursday, we carried a letter entitled "Rail plans 'lost track of reality' ". Due to a production error, this letter was attributed to an Alex Black, of Chester, when it was actually written by another correspondent, Mark Bill.
Mr Black has asked us to clarify that these were not his views and we apologise for any confusion caused.
W ILLIAM LEECE'S interview with the Australian-born chef Ashley Ritchie on Tuesday referred to "the eating houses of Melbourne and Sidney". That should, of course, have read Sydney.
