It’s been a while since I posted the first part of our Liverpool Football Club experience but needless to say it’s all still fresh in our minds. I won’t follow up with a full-on match report, but suffice to say seeing Luis Suarez score his first home hat-trick was an unbelievable experience! The atmosphere during the match was like nothing I’ve ever encountered before – you can genuinely feel the excitement crackle in the air like a firework and watching the stadium erupt into cheering and song when someone scores is one of the most exhilarating moments of my life.
If you’re a Liverpool fan, or even just a football fan in general, you’ll know that the song ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’ is really important to the club. It’s originally from the film ‘Carousel’, written in 1945 by Rodgers and Hammerstein, but was recorded by Liverpool legends Gerry and the Pacemakers in 1963 and was adopted as a club song by the fans. I’ve heard it sung by the Kop end of the stadium on TV and in audio recordings hundreds of times, but standing in front of the Kop, singing along with 12,400 die-hard Liverpool fans and watching my daughter sing along was something I’ll never, ever forget.
We all left after that game feeling utterly elated. I’m so pleased that we got to have this experience as a family and I’ll be making more effort in the future to get us all there again (providing we can get our hands on tickets!). Now that Sausage has been to Anfield, it’s only right that her sister gets to go too!
