I read the title of this topic and all I could think was, 'Can't he find his own friends??'

Anyway, I'd suggest maybe stick something in the Globe or Wirral News - people sometimes respond to that kind of thing smile

agreed spanner, and anyway it did say "old friend". I often take the mick myself but think this was a bit ott at an old man's request.

Did this robert christianson live in the flats near the Royal Standard Pub and run it's football team late 60s early 70s.
If so, I think he had a son the same name who would be about 60 now

looked in local telephone book but no christianson but 5 entries for christiansen
