I've paid my dues
Time after time
I've done my sentence
But committed no crime
And bad mistakes
I've made a few
I've had my share of sand kicked in my face
But I've come through
We are the champions, my friends
And we'll keep on fighting 'til the end
We are the champions
We are the champions
No time for losers
'Cause we are the champions of the world
I've taken my bows
And my curtain calls
You brought me fame and fortune and everything that goes with it
I thank you all
But it's been no bed of roses
No pleasure cruise
I consider it a challenge before the whole human race
And I ain't gonna lose
We are the champions, my friends
And we'll keep on fighting 'til the end
We are the champions
We are the champions

I also want to write something about the 96 right now, very much so. I've strongly felt throughout the decades that this horrible event, and the way it was used to drag the city's reputation into the mud after it occured, had a massive impact on this club's fate. For me, it's no haphazard that we progressively started to rise up again after the reputation of the 96, and with them, the reputation of the club and all fans, had been fully restored and officially acknowledged, both by political instances (Cameron's speech of apology in 2012) and judicial instances, with that long trial starting to take place after that. It was as if a weight was progressively lifted, as if a dark cloud was slowly giving way to the sun. As if there was a link between these things.

Let's rejoice and take it in as much as we can, but that moment tonight will be also very, very much for the 96 and their families, who never stopped looking for justice. RIP to the 96, and a heartfelt YNWA to all their families and friends.
Very well said, and then we go and reclaim the title on 96 points. Utterly mind boggling.

The Champions Wall at Melwood is about to get upgraded. The 18 will become 19, with the artwork for the trophies changed to combine both the old First Division and the Premier League trophies.

Have to say that thought had often crossed my mind as well.
