The best team I have witnessed in my time as a Liverpool fan...
My recollection of what happened on the 4th April 2009.
I listened on the radio, miss after miss after miss. You could sense it was going to be one of them days again. I had to leave the car on the 82nd minute and go into the pub with my dad (he owns the machines at pubs)... I thought the game might be on there but it wasnt. My dad was finished and it was time to enter the car and turn on the radio. I listened to the post match talk on TalkSport, there was no mention of the Liverpool win, all I heard was the fact that we kept missing all those chances. I anxiously waited for the score to be announced... My dad and me both thought it was a draw by the way they were talking, and they finally said, "Fulham 0-1 Liverpool"... That was it, the league was ours. We were finally going to win the Premier League.
The next day, Aston Villa vs Man Utd... 2-1 to Villa!! My dad rang as I played outside... Yes!! I go home at 5pm, check Sky Sports News and see Aston Villa 2-3 Man Utd... Federico Macheda grabs a late winner at Villa Park. From that moment on, the pendulum swung to those the other end of the East Lancs Road.
Then Man Utd vs Tottenham. We beat Hull 1-3 earlier in the day. 0-2 down, yet again my dad rings to tell me the score. Soon after he rings me to say Man Utd are winning 5-2... "Are you taking the mick dad?" Since that moment we have never been the same.
What a great season that was... How we never beat Spurs at WHL along with Babel's miss vs Portsmouth? and so many other great moments... I miss those days as a young kid.
