Liverpool and Everton in Manhattan transfer

Does this train stop on Merseyside? Not quite

Published on August 12th 2013.

Liverpool and Everton in Manhattan transfer

YOU can run but you can't hide...

One might be forgiven for thinking that Merseyrail has suddenly opened a new station called Stanley Park. Or that the Mighty Reds have taken to spending their money on passengers rather than players. 

In fact you'd be miles wrong, more than 3,000 miles wrong; the stars and stripes give it away.

For this Liverpool FC subway car is ferrying commuters from Times Square to Grand Central in New York City. 

And just to complete the picture, straight down the line we have a rather suave looking Everton FC train carriage too. 


It's a clever piece of marketing by TV network NBC to ensure native New Yorkers know the score by tuning into its new $250 million coverage of the English Premiership which begins this weekend. 

The subway cars instruct passengers to “Keep Calm and Pick......” followed by the name of the team which can be Liverpool, Everton, Spurs, Arsenal and the two Manchester sides. Once inside, seats are decked out in the livery of the team and travellers are invited to “pick a side”. 

The subway car doors say “Liverpool/Everton Fans Enter Here,” which might flummox those who aren’t soccer fans.

Indeed, the only Suarez in Manhattan is a rather pricey handbag shop on the Upper West Side (insert wry comparison here).

NYC is currently awash with LFC stories. This one is rather nearer reality than all that billionaires' marketing piffle: www.nytimes.com/…/a-corner-bakery-and-a-towns-rebirth.html…

"Currently awash" seems a strange description of one story from 10 months ago.

I know of one young lady, who was electrified in a bakery. She stood on a Eccles cake, and the current ran up her leg.
