He lived round the corner from us in Huyton house rd early eighties .
I had the displeasure of growing up on the next road to them. They all grew up on Manley Road on the Johns. Him and Drew moved to near Widnes with their dad (also called Joe) when they were kids, their dad is actually a really nice man, so is Drew (I think he's Michael's twin)
Michael ended up staying with him mum n the rest is history. His mum, think her name is Rita, was a fuckin skank and really no surprise she brought up a racist murderer.
She ended up getting booted out of Huyton when he murdered Anythony Walker.
