Michael Owen tings..

One of the reasons i started supporting lfc when i was young was none other than michael owen. He was a hero in my eyes. There was that unique special connection between a football hero and his fan, I idolised him. I built my whole lfc 'supporting' decision on his shoulders.. then when the time came and he went to real, i was crushed but thought -he's doing whats best for his career-

I wanted him to succeed, to be the amazing footballer i knew he was, so me and the majority of the lfc community let that one slide. Then he didn't do so well, it was Newcastle time. All the while lfc fans secretly wanted him back more than anything. Which brings me to none other than..

MUFC.. the one club i hate more than life itself. i remember the day i saw him in that god awful shirt and read his quotes of it being a dream of a lifetime. First thing i did was break a huge framed photo of him that i had since i was about 10 years old.. then did what any girl in my position would do - cried.

not sure why i did, but boyy did i cry.. bucketfuls.. felt like my trust had been betrayed, like nothing made sense anymore! how could a true red go and play for THEM! how could he betray us like that? how could he say those things?

so i spent a whole year hating him, calling him judas, singing along hateful chants - etc

Thinking back now, after having time to think, and really think, what options did he have? He wanted back in liverpool!! HE SO desperately did.. and we wanted him back too.. but that idiot BENITEZ said no, and i will always have a grudge with benitez over this. i thank him for istanbul, for everything. However, his stupidest decision remains - not letting Owen back.

So i put myself in his shoes, -though you may not agree with me- try doing the same: play in a small time 'career ending' league or play for one of the so called 'top' clubs in football? He literally had no other choice..

We forget that he is firstly and foremostly a football player, and when you play at a certain level, you need to be challenged - by being in a top class team, to build your talent. Or else- neglect it and let it go to waste.

I'm sure it wasn't an easy decision for him, and its very easy for us as fans to judge him, and hold morals and loyalty at heart. However I've come to learn the hard way, true loyalty is very rare in football. Unless you have roots in the country hosting the club. Even then.. its pretty rare

Someone once told me - Loyalty is for the fans, a statement thats proving to be true.

I can understand why Owen did what he did, and why fans wouldn't rush to wanting him playing at liverpool again... I know he hurt us, betrayed us, all the above - but I for one.. will always, always secretly want to see my childhood football hero in a liverpool shirt again.

long time no see!

WOW.. its been over a year since i've posted on here.. so much has gone on since then i dont even know where to start.. *overwhelmed* i kept wanting to come back on here during that year but it was either too depressing or i was too buried with work..

never thought the point would come where i'd literally be 'too busy'.. i mean i was told med school sucks the life out of you but always considered it to be an over statement.. apparantly its 110% true.. its been SUCH an overwhelming year.. but anyways thankfully i've gotten through it so i can look forward to suffering with my three remaining years.. aah.

ANYHOW.. where to start! new owners.. arsenal.. enrique.. SUAAREEZZZ.. sunderland :/.. king kenny (woop).. *deep breathe*

looked at one of my old posts bout how scared i was bout torres leaving.. turned out to be the best thing that ever happened to us. liverpool fc is a club based on morals, loyalty and class. so we can do better than money hungry can't score to save his life judas :)

need to change the blog banner as well.. any volunteers?

its no secret we had a miserable season last year, but we're on the brink of reform. new owners, new manager, new players. takes time, but in kenny we trust. I can feel a good year up ahead..

Apologies for dissapearing, didn't wana bore you guys with a huge mega make up for lost time post so i'll make it up with frequent posts in the future..

YNWA, come on the pool!

for the first time in my life..

I slept through a match.

I know. Shocking. I still can't understand how this happened.

You see i was pulling an all-nighter with my cardiorespiratory lectures.. and fell asleep somewhere between 1pm n' 2pm.. Not the whole cozy 'lemme go sleep'.. i just.. literally 'fell' asleep.

Woke up to an LFC notification on my phone.. saying;
fulham 0 - 0 liverpool FULL TIME.
and countless other texts from united fans - but thats a given, sad pathetic ppl.

just saw man citys score so.. G'bye Champions League.. it was nice knowing you.. Thanks for all the amazing memories.. Hope we meet again x

I've a mountain of lectures to go through, an empty stomach, thoughts of Gerrard n' Torres wanting to leave plague-ing my head and clouding my judgment, just found out Torres has some next knee problem aaaand im contemplating dropping out of med school.

Today is not my day.

The end. :D

New kit.. Benfica Who?

Ok so the new Liverpool Fc home kit has just been released on the lfc website.. for the '10/'11 season.. its different for a lot of reasons.. one of the main points being the no 'carlsberg' emblazened across the shirt.. bye bye alcoholic beverage hellooooo bankinggg..

more professional that way.. but the kit design itself is butteerrzzz.. its a diamondy shaped fabric.. reminds me of the 'candy' days.. very retro look.. maybe will act as inspiration?

dunno.. my only concern is that the shirt looks PROPER tight.. bloody lycra..



Liverpooooooooools qualified to Europa league semi finals! wahay.! one HELL of a game.. i mean the atmosphere was invincible.. i was sitting at home.. a country away from anfeild yet felt the spirit in that match, even singing along to the kop at times.. and the goals n chances were nothing short of magical.. i mean LUCAS scored a goal.. if thats not magic.. dunno what is..

We managed to bash benfica 4-1, with an opener from kuyt, and gerrard set up lucas for the 2nd goal, then our amazinggggggggggggggg TORRESSSSS done the rest.. aaaaaaaaaah..

oh and the one dodgy goal from benfica was a free kick.. go figure..

Atletico Madrid.. should be arrite..

Fulham on the 11th in the EPL..

Gwaaaaaaaaaaaaaaan the pool!

Benfica.. Birmingham.. Benitez..

woweee its been one hell of a week..

after that massive high of the sunderland match came our 1st leg match against benfica in the 'prestigious' europa league.. i remember being on such a high cuz united had lost their champions league match two days before.. and i may have been gloating here n there so NEEDED to win this match..

anyyyhooow.. the match started off beautifully with an Agger backheel effort which paid off.. followed by a series of incidents that made me want to pull my hair out.. Torres.. yes our beautiful Torres was like a punching bag.. fouled from behind, front, sideaways.. with NO protection from the bloody ref.. no, he was too busy sending babel off for being 'too in a players face'... literally.

The benfica crowd were disgusting to say the least.. throwing firecrackers on the pitch, targetted at players, uncivilised disgusting crowd.. ofcourse the ref had tee stop his favourite team from losing so then awarded two penalties which in turn won benfica the match.. I won't even try to vent my frustration at this ref and why the decisions were poor to say the least because i'd need around 5 pages and i dont want to bore you..

so moving swiftly along..

on easter sunday.. [HAPPY BELATED EASTER PPPEEEOPLEE :D ] we travelled to st andrews to what was supposed to be our 'clinching 4th spot' performance.. things went smoothly at first with a classic Gerrard strike.. but Ridgewell scored for the home side not long after..

which brings me to Benitez.. 60 minutes into the match.. such an IMPORTANT match.. 4th spot make it or break it match.. he takes off Torres! and no, he wasn't injured.. playing weakly.. or ANYTHING..

Rafa says he was 'tired' .. pahleez.. how about we see what HE thought about it?

i swear the reactions on that video say only one thing = Rafa has lost any respect his players have for him.. hes' lost the dressing room as they saaaaay..

He's just protecting Torres for benfica.. well guess what Benitez.. we dont CARE about europa! everyone knows that! 4th spot is way more important! ARGH Rafas deffo lost the plot.. has for a while now..

so yh.. thats our week pretty much.. dissapointment/frustration sums it up..
Benfica tommorow.. dundun..

Liverpool 3 - 0 Sunderland

Today i witnessed a different liverpool.. a liverpool i so very much missed.. last seasons liverpool.. the side teams feared.. Form was class today, high paced match with countless chances being made..

Torres got the ball rolling 3 minutes into the match by scoring one of best goals of the season, an aaamaaahaazingggg curled strike into the top corner from a tight angle in the box... just.. beauty..

Johnson then gave a left footed strike into the net @ minute 32.. Torres then missed a few very very easy chances but was forgiven by the kop just for being his awesome self.. he was NEXT level today and to prove it scored his second and last goal in the game at 60 minutes.. his 20th goal this season :D

If we play at this pace in the games to come, 4th spot looks more and more acheivable.. we're still depending on other teams to slip up.. but wowwweee.. liverpools form today.. refreshing to say the least.. keeeep iiit uuup ladss!!

"We have confidence now, we know we can beat anyone and we know we have to win all our games from now until the end." - Torres

Benfica on April Fools.. European Final N' fourth spot.. would make my year..
