Trent R. Nelson is a 29-year-old autodidactic poet and historian, political, social and economic analyst, as well as a soccer writer. Zidane’s 2006 World Cup got him hooked onto the sport before learning that his Everton family ties stretch deep back into the 19th century. He travels often, and so writes as he goes. He loves writing, reading, chatting and listening; he writes about Everton at Royal Blue Mersey, Arsenal for Pain in the Arsenal, general soccer at Playing for 90, and for Liberal Currents and Exponents Magazine in regards to politics, history and the associated matters. Trent usually writes long-form articles about the club from a 10,000 foot view. Twitter - @TRichard_Nelson
