“At Anfield, even experienced players can have a bad start because of the excitement of playing in such a stadium.
Pushed by their fans, the Liverpool players seemed unstoppable….” Fabio Capello.
As fans we all have special memories from magical European nights at Anfield. They are the type of nights that we still tell our children, friends and family about at every opportunity. Each of us with the feeling that we own a little piece of history from those nights.
Now ahead of one of the biggest games at Anfield in recent memory, we have the chance once again, as fans, to play our part in the history of this magnificent football club. As stated by decorated manager, Fabio Capello, Liverpool fans have the unique power to make the men in red shirts feel unstoppable. The time is now upon us all to summon that power again tonight.
Are Manchester City are a brilliant football team? Yes, but let’s not forget, so are we. This Liverpool side are a serious football team. On our day, we are one of the most exciting teams in Europe. If you couple that with our new found mental strength, we are a match for absolutely anybody.
Let’s not kid ourselves, drawing Manchester City is far from ideal, in fact it’s probably the worst draw we could have got. However, ask yourself this, are City happy with drawing us? No. Do Liverpool ever do things the easy way? No. We’ve overcome bigger obstacles than this in Europe before and we can do it again over the next two weeks, starting tonight!
Tonight is not the time for doubt. Enjoy and embrace the nerves that come with being involved in a big European tie. We exist for night’s like this. We are a club and team on the up, regardless of how this tie pans out. It’s one of the most exciting times to be a Liverpool fan in recent memory and it’s only going to get better.
So now is the time to come together as one, locals and day-trippers unite. Wear your scarfs, shirts, hats and bring your flags. Get into the ground early and leave real-life at the gate. As for 90 minutes tonight you can forget everything else and be ready to sing and shout for every passing minute. Let’s push our lads into every press, every tackle and let the lads know they have the full power of 54,000 fans behind them.
We are LIVERPOOL. We’ve conquered all of Europe, we’re never going to stop, from Paris down to Turkey, we’ve won the FUCKING LOT!
UP THE REDS!
