Italian restaurant Liverpool

Footballers Prefer Italian Restaurants

Did you know that in Liverpool some of the best Italian restaurants in Liverpool such as this one are frequented by some of the top names in football?

Wayne Rooney among others have been spotted here and with good reason.

The restaurant itself is set out like a traditional Italian restaurant setting with the food to match.

There are plenty of places to go star spotting in Liverpool but what would you do if you found yourself sitting next to your favourite footballer in a restaurant?

Would you leave them be? Ask for an autograph? Spark up a conversation?

Most people probably just want to be left alone depending on who they are with, do you remember the incident with Steven Gerard in Southport out with his mates who ended up caught in a bar brawl because the DJ wouldn’t let one of Steven’s mates onto the DJ decks?

This just goes to prove that footballers are normal people just like you and me and sometime they don’t mind being talked to by the general public and then there’s other times when they just want to be left alone.

The trick is to give them space and respect and use common sense to judge whether they will welcome your advances or not, for example, if they appear to be on a date then leave them alone (otherwise if you did approach them their ego may take a boost if they are trying to show off to a girlfriend).

It’s a judgement call for sure but if you do want to find out who visits these places, there’s only one way to find out – to visit!

If you are not in Liverpool then there’s always the option of travelling in and hanging around or perhaps scour the local news for stories of footballer hangouts, after all they’re just normal people and visit normal places too!

Liverpool FC Christmas Promotional Video

Liverpool FC released a new promotional video last month which has been created by video production giants Zut Media who are also based in Liverpool.

It’s true that clubs are business and football / soccer now seems to play a lesser role in the overall bigger picture for clubs. The promotion of merchandise and other saleable items has been growing in terms of revenue trend for some time now.

The beautiful game is no longer a game – it’s an industry. This is not a critisiscm you must understand because when all is said and done billions of people worldwide love football and want to support their club which is only fair – the money has to go to somewhere and while there are people who are willing to part with their cash in the name of the game then why the hell not!

Christmas is a time of giving and Liverpool FC along with many other names often create these type of promotional video to let fans know what they have to offer and related merchandise from your favourite club is always a welcome gift for lovers of the game.

Here’s a snippet from the post on Zut Media’s website:

For the past 3 years, Zút have produced a wide range of content and campaign creative to support the retail, commercial and tourism departments of Liverpool Football Club.

To support the club’s campaign for the 2019 Christmas sales period, we produced a series of adverts, told episodically over 4 weeks, featuring some of LFC’s biggest stars.

The adverts required the construction of a bespoke Christmas market, and featured a local choir singing well-know LFC songs, underpinning a narrative that links the magic of Christmas with fans hopes and ambitions for their club’s success.

Zút devised the campaign strapline “’Tis the season to believe” to encapsulate this sentiment, for which we also created artworking assets and design guidelines.

To link the visual creative seen in the films, Zút also designed the visual merchandising displays for each of LFC’s 7 retail locations, bringing elements from the Christmas market scenes into each window display.

Soccer Bo Takes On A Direction

Soccer Bo was once a seller of cheap soccer shows including main big name brands such as Nike and Adidas.

Today things are different, in the UK we call soccer football but we understand that worldwide people tend to call it soccer and so we’re happy to keep the name and carry on publishing great content for fans of the game.

However – this site no longer sells boots and equipment, instead we’re taking a look at the game and other similar sports in their entirety.

We’ll be publishing some great content soon – stay posted.
