What a game!!!! And no, i did not watch it. I've stopped watching Liverpool games. Why? That's another story for another day. And if i had watched the game last night, Liverpool would probably have lost.
I did watch the repeat! And it was just as exciting and emotional!!! The manner how they never gave up but still kept on trying and trying and trying. Brilliant!
Let me just recap by showing the "live" updates from BBC Sports - which were pretty entertaining!
In less than 10 minutes, Liverpool were down 2-0. That meant that they had to score 3 goals!!! That was a lot to ask for. Was it all over?
But then there was a glimmer of hope after the half time break!!!
That was short-lived and did not last 10 minutes. It was back to having to score 3 in 33 minutes!!! Even tougher than Istanbul.
But do we have time for another miracle?
So we so many goalscorers on the pitch. Who will score???
But we still need one more and we are running out of time!
And then, it happened. And no it was not from a forward player. It was the other center back!!!
Can we hold on???
What made it even sweeter was that Dortmund played really well too. And they were such sporting losers.
What a game - from the moments before the game when the entire stadium was singing "You'll never walk alone" right to the end, with the players and manager applauding the fans, it was an emotional ride. I had tears rolling down my cheeks as i tried to imagine how it would have been to be there, at the Kop end, witnessing such a special and magical game.
Credit to our manager. He added so much entertainment by his pitch-side antics!!! Jumping around, screaming and shouting, applauding. There was the moment when Lovren was in Dortmund's box and had a lot of time but he simply skied his shot. Klopp just stood there, not moving at all but the "cha toe" look on his face was priceless and left me laughing uncontrollably!!!
Well, he got us us all to believe - and just like how he said end of last year, "We decide when it's over". They refused to say it was over - until they won it!!! Well done.
There can be miracles - if we only believe. And Klopp is making the players believe. That was evident last night. He is also making us believe!!!
