There are 7 Rings of The Human Family which expands when we travel away from home. The further we travel away from home the more the 7 Rings expands to get bigger and bigger; the moment we start travelling back to our roots or wherever we call home it starts shrinking to become smaller and smaller.

In my novel, The Anfield Man, there lived a young man called Alfonso, who was a citizen of Spain. Alfonso fell in love with a Spanish girl. His mother, however, did not approve of the love match because the girl's grandmother had South American blood in her veins. Trouble soon abounded and the love story took Alfonso on a journey from Spain to Africa. While Alfonso was in Africa, the national teams of England and Spain played against one another in a football match at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium in Madrid.

During the course of the match in Madrid, black footballers in the England team were subjected to one of the most appalling forms of Racial Abuse ever known in history: a black player only need to go anywhere near the ball and a large section of the crowd will burst into the most sickening of monkey chants.

The Sickening Monkey Chants that Black English Players were subjected to in Spain caused Alfonso to find himself confronted by a difficult problem amongst black people in Africa. What happened to Alfonso in Africa inspired the writing of Fly The 7 Rings of The Human Family & Go Tell A Friend.

The pupil of a Holy Man in The Anfield Man taught Alfonso how The 7 Rings of The Human Family is used in practice and it opened Alfonso's eyes to some fundamental truths about our common human nature. This caused Alfonso to embark on a journey that he never saw coming in his life.

ABOVE ALL, ALFONSO WAS STAGGERED to discover that, in the Land of the Anfield Man, there are No Football Hooligans; and no thief would like to take a thing from you, even if you leave the door of your house open for months.

The Anfield Man is Holy Men's Contribution to the Beautiful Game of Football.
