You'll Never Walk Alone

For those of you who do not understand the title of this post, I can say that it is the famous anthem of Liverpool Football Club. It will resound in Athens tonight whether the Reds are victorious or not. The fans are some of the most loyal supporters imaginable. They will sing their hearts out irrespective of the result. Will AC Milan get revenge for the defeat in the same Champions League Cup Final in Istanbul two years ago? I hope not. The Reds are the underdogs once again, but they have beaten the odds before. Milan have, among a number of world class players, Kaká, probably the best footballer in the world, to paraphrase the Carlsberg slogan. On the other hand Liverpool are phenomenal fighters. When did you ever see Carragher give up? He does not have that gene, the defeatist gene. He would be the last man standing if it were 'life-or-death'. Finally, if Gerrard fires on all cylinders and puts on one of those famous displays of leadership, I shall enjoy my habitual beer and toast the winners. Otherwise it will be the proverbial pie for lunch tomorrow.

Just saw the game on TV. Shame that Liverpool lost. When they scored in the final 10 mins I thought the great fight back was on. Still to get to another Champions League final is a major achievement :)
