Liverpool 3-0 Sunderland
Reina, Johnson, Carra, Agger, Insua, Masch, Gerrard, Maxi, Babel, Kuyt, Torres.
Sat with the rest of the oot/ooc, (which I'm sure must make all of you cringe) singing along with the songs from the kop and Anny Road. Got some angry looks, but couldn't care less. It was amazing.
Before the match we looked around town a bit, then took the bus towards Anfield. At the first glance I got of it, I got a lump in my throat. Then we got off, walked over and when I stood on the street watching it for the very first time in my life I cried. I just stood there looking and crying. It must have looked really weird, but it was overwhelming. I had been looking forward to this for such a long time and then, finally, I was outside Anfield, along with the other reds who were about to go to the match. I will never ever forget that feeling.
We went to the Albert for a while, then went inside the stadium as one of the first. Again, just standing and looking around in silence, taking it in, letting it sink in that I was finally here. Then the match, 3-0, fantastic performance. Then the protest against the owners. I sat close to Anny Road, being last in the stand before being thrown out by the stewards, but what I wouldn't have given to be there with the rest of them.
