I didn’t watch the game last night (this morning), because I needed to be at my alertest today.
But I’ll be honest – I did NOT expect us to escape defeat in Turin.
But we did – and all day now I’ve been feeling like I’m in 7th heaven.
I was too young to remember the last time Liverpool made it to the semis, so this is something new for me and millions of Liverpool supporters of my generation.
While our REAL target this season remains qualification for next season’s Champions League, it must be said that, considering the circumstances (new manager, terrible number of injuries, losing Owen pre-season), we have still managed to reach a domectic cup final and the semis of the Champions League.
All-in-all, a decent season by anyone’s (except maybe Chelsea’s) standards.
And of course, we now get the chance to ‘repay’ Chelsea after the League Cup defeat. Bring it.
Anyway, regardless of how the season pans out, I am nevertheless confident (more so than at any time this past few months) that we’ve got the absolute right man at the helm to take this club to greater heights – and for the first time in years, I feel those heights are beginning to look very climb-able…..
