    Michael Shields collection

    Just got this from Liverpools site and thought id post it for those who havent seen it.

    An official collection for jailed Liverpool fan Michael Shields will be held at Anfield this coming Saturday when the Reds entertain West Ham in the first Premiership home game of the season.

    Collectors, in orange T-shirts, will be stationed at every turnstile inside the ground in a bid to raise funds for the 'Free Michael' campaign.

    The 19-year old was arrested in Bulgaria last May for a crime he insists he didn't commit.

    Just days previous, he'd been in Istanbul to see his beloved Reds lift the European Cup.

    Despite another man admitting responsibility Michael remains in prison but the fight for justice continues.

    Last August Liverpool fans backed calls for him to be released with a mosaic on the Kop, which read 'FREE MICHAEL', and campaigners are urging everyone attending the match on Saturday to kindly show their support once again.
