still have that red fever number 6, and to enjoy it more, I have been watching a lot of different singers and versions of "You'll Never Walk Alone ", of course starting with Gerry and the Pacemakers. Feelings of awe, joy, excitement and goosebumps flowing in my veins

I heard that UEFA never ever play the football club anthem, this is not the norm. After the Champions League final, they usually play their own anthem, but Liverpool's YNWA anthem was given dispensation so it can be played.

Is this true?

Wanted to make sure I got in on this thread- European Champions again!! #6. I freaking love this club.

I mean- when Hendo lifted the trophy they played the UEFA anthem first and THEN YNWA- they did the same thing in 05 if I remember right.

Oh Gawd. I just had to watch the post match celebrations again, when the team are making their way on to the podium. What a magical night.
I saw a teary expression in Daniel Levy's face. Tbh, I felt so so sorry for him for a moment. We have all been there.

The reason why I watched it again tonight, because I was reading the back stories of the players and their thoughts of those 2 days, post match celebration and Victory parade.

He was thinking "how the fuck will I get £150m for Eriksen now?"

Aww, I am sure he is a very nice man, but a tough business negotiator when it comes to his club.
I wouldnt think Harry Redknapp thinks he is a very nice man with the number he did on him when arry was being looked at for the England job. He wanted it, it was public knowledge it was arry's dream job but levy would only release him for huge compensation which the fa wouldnt play and they went with Hodgson and then a few months later levy sacks Redknapp

I did not care how we won it - just that we did. They were all man-of-matches, including all the reds who were there, and the ones in Madrid not at the game. Just fantastic watching the you-tube clips of the scenes before and after the result - no-one will ever know just how much that personally helped me. I wrote a piece o Why I Love Liverpool before the final and that result and our fans just made me love us even more...

A year ago today.

Having watched it back recently, we actually played better than I remember.

Tottenham came into it in the second half but only put us under any pressure for about 6 or 7 minutes. Otherwise we were totally comfortable.

The back 5, Henderson, Mane and Salah were all excellent. Fab was decent, Gini and Firmino struggled to get into the game. Milner steadied the ship off the bench and Origi scored the goal that made us comfortable.

The real work was done 3 weeks earlier. I never had any real doubts that we'd win this final. We were the better side and it showed on the night.

Aye, it wasnt an attractive game, but that didnt mean we struggled. Spurs offered next to fuck all and so after taking the lead so early that was fine by us.

Still though the most memorable bits is at the end with Klopp doing his rounds of giving out hugs and he gets to Hendo who is in absolute bits. The moment they shared then is so powerful, but also such a personal moment between them that it almost feels like an intrusion to watch it.

I listened to the Anfield Wrap interview with Klopp again, and the thing that isn’t really understood it how hot it was. Klopp’s opinion is that while it wasn’t a great game it was a mature pregnancy to cope with conditions as we did.

I was in bits as soon as the whistle went. It was a long and rocky road from Kiev to Madrid. That scene with Hendo and his Dad was special, after his Dad had been unwell the year or so before.

What a memorable night in Madrid!

You know that bit when the final whistle blows and Jurgen hugs Poch and the camera zooms into the audience, we see Gerard, there is a couple next to him, he is greeting them, do you know who they are, they look familiar, not sure if they are sports people or actors/celebrities?

memories evoked and emotions stirred after watching the final again and especially Herr Klopp immediately after the final whistle. Our club certainly affects a vast majority of people around the world in a very positive way. The minority not affected don’t know much about football and passion which includes manure.

All the pundits were saying we were playing bad, but I thought we defended very well.
We were just better in both boxes. Took our chances, could have had a couple more, and didn’t let Spurs have anything.

Spurs played well in the centre of the pitch, but that doesn’t really count for much if you are not as good in attack and defence.
