What makes our European Nights so special? Liverpool’s European nights are so amazing, but why? Is it the roar of the Kop?
Possibly the magic that only happens at Anfield when the lights are on?
Or the anticipation that something amazing will happen – we can dream.
As a club we have had so many amazing nights, so many amazing stories to be told and passed on from generation to generation.
Tonight is a European night. Tonight is the European night. The night when 11 warriors will take to the pitch to potentially be crowned Kings of Europe.
Some may argue that it’s only the Europa League, they may be right.
But for me it would be an amazing achievement.
Winning tonight would put us where we belong back in the Champions League.
Where we were in October compared to now are poles apart.
That’s down to Jurgen Klopp. Our 12th man.
He’s inspired our players to commit to every 50/50 ball, play with every ounce of energy they have.
When he came to Liverpool in October, he said his first task was to turn “doubters into believers”.
The final tonight makes me a believer again.
Over the years we have enjoyed so many fantastic nights.
So many nights that are full of emotion, tension and tears.
Tears of joy and tears of would have been….
2007 I believed it would have been no.6
It’s nights like tonight that make me remember what a Liverpool fan is all about.
European nights are an occasion.
They are an occasion – an evening when most of Europe sit back and watch. Wishing and dreaming it were them. Tonight it’s a European night.
It’s my chance to dream.
