Anfield!

Yup, This is Anfield. Didn't think I'd make it here again (especially after the originally scheduled fixture was re-scheduled because of the snow in December) but hey, here I am.




This was the view from the Kop (where I was!) right before kick-off during the Liverpool v. Fulham game yesterday night. And, here's our match tickets to further prove it...




There were three of us but only two tickets for the Kop and one ticket for the Main Stand. Sam "Meireles" Zamen was such a gent (it must've been the pleading look on my face) and relinquished any claim on the Kop tickets to allow E and I a chance to sit on the Kop. Thanks again Sam and as a token of my appreciation, I even took a picture of him on the Main Stand, waving for our attention about half an hour before kick-off.




Well, he said he was there somewhere. I think he's the dude at the top of the "a" in the Adidas. E, on the other hand, could be seen more clearly in this picture of the Kop taken a few moments earlier.




Oh, and here's a picture of the Centenary Stand (the one most TV cameras face), just to complete the set...




Kick-off came along soon enough and from then on, my full attention was on the pitch. It wasn't a classic by any standard but after having the opportunity to stand and sing amongst the Mighty Kopites, a win and some flashes of brilliance from the Redmen (Torres' deemed offside goal a couple of minutes into the game was one of them) were more than enough to make it all worth it for me.


Now all I need to do is nurse a throbbing headache and a horribly hoarse throat. A bit more sleep should do the trick...

Yeah, feck me. The Kop bro. A bit of an upgrade when we were there last. The downside to that was the seats weren't as close to the pitch. But still...it was the Kop!
