Champions League Final 2007

I went Downtown again to watch the Champions League Final, just like two years ago. However, the result was not what I would’ve liked. Milan was nowhere near the quality of 2005 and Liverpool is a much better side than two years ago, but the results were reversed. Such is football. Such is life.

The local Liverpool supporter’s club chose the Library Square Public House as the venue this time. It was a bigger place than the Lennox (the venue for last time). There were many more supporters this time around too.

The crowd is very loud and enthusiastic, as can be expected for a Champions League Final. At half-time, the pub played “You’ll Never Walk Alone” and everyone sang in full voice:

When you walk through a storm
Hold your head up high
And don’t be afraid of the dark
At the end of the storm
Is a golden sky

And the sweet silver song of a lark

Walk on through the wind
Walk on through the rain
Tho’ your dreams be tossed and blown
Walk on, walk on
With hope in your heart
And you’ll never walk alone
You’ll never walk alone

Walk on, walk on
With hope in your heart
And you’ll never walk alone
You’ll never walk alone

Needless to say the atmosphere was great.

I don’t have much to say about the match itself, other than the obvious facts like Liverpool desparately needs a game breaker (like Kaka), and Inzaghi miraculously did not go offside for once (and he scored). After years of building, Liverpool becomes a force to be reckoned with, but they still need that little bit of extra quality that set great European sides (e.g. Juventus in the 90’s, Real Madrid in the early 00’s) apart from good teams (e.g. Man Utd, Chelsea).

I am gutted at the loss, but I know that Liverpool will walk on, and will become Champions of Europe again. They’ve been there before and they will go there again. No. 6 awaits.

Walk on, walk on, and you’ll never walk alone.
