Cham­pi­ons to go green

The Herald - The Herald Magazine - - First Up -

THE in­creas­ingly woke Liver­pool Foot­ball Club is re­port­edly go­ing veg­e­tar­ian. I can’t imag­ine it’s to­tally veg­e­tar­ian or “ve­gan”, as im­plied in the tabloids, but it is at least part­nern­ing up with meat­sub­sti­tute com­pany Quorn “to help the Reds go green”.

It’s all part of the club’s sup­port for “sus­tain­abil­ity”. I can speak au­thor­i­ta­tively, as I’m a fan of Quorn sausage rolls.

I’m not sure if a cou­ple of these be­fore a match would help the play­ers but per­haps the fans, who are to be of­fered Quorn prod­ucts, will like them.

I can’t speak for those at

An­field but the meat pies at foot­ball grounds leave you feel­ing phys­i­cally ill and psy­cho­log­i­cally dis­ori­en­tated.

In Scot­land, I’ve eaten sev­eral hun­dred over the years and, with the ex­cep­tion of those at Kil­marnock and Dun­fermline, if I re­mem­ber (I’ll need to check my pie diary), ev­ery sin­gle one was dis­gust­ing.
