Liverpool haven’t been in a major final since 2006, and we haven’t played at Wembley since those white-suited days of 1995, so forgive us if we seem just a little bit excited about the Carling Cup!
Whilst rival fans used to sneer at the League Cup, we all know what a massive difference a piece of silverware can do for your season – just ask Arsenal, who managed to nosedive after losing to Birmingham last season – so we’re hoping Liverpool go all-out to bring the trophy back to Anfield!
The truth is that the big clubs all want to win this tournament these days, and they all put practically their best teams out to do so. To beat them all and make it through to the final is one thing, to overcome that last hurdle, and see Stevie G lifting the trophy aloft at Wembley, will be quite another!
We’ve got our train tickets booked, and will be out and about in London early, enjoying that nervous pre-match away-day buzz! A win could herald the start of a new era, with King Kenny at the helm as we head back into Europe, and start becoming an all-conquering force once more.
There might be a countless millions of fans worldwide who don’t want us to win, fearing that it will prompt our resurgence on the world stage, and that will just make it all the sweeter when we win!
We’ve designed a limited edition commemorative t-shirt for the occasion. We’re going to enjoy remembering this day, and think that having the t-shirt will be the perfect way to do so!
Good luck Liverpool!!!
