Courageous Barnes not afraid to tackle racism issue head on
We had our 'Liverpool Special' last Thursday at Vicar St with Phil Thompson, Mark Lawrenson, Ray Houghton, Gary McAllister and John Barnes.
Thommo mustered up his very best Bill Shankly impersonation. Lawro threw out some beautifully dry one-liners. McAllister was a wonderfully likeable guest who provoked nothing but love from the audience.
But Barnes stood out. Articulate and courageous, he wants to speak about difficult things. And he is good at it.
