Same commentator though and I didn't pick it up first time but I did when watching the highlights, said as we were both coming out of the tunnel at the start of the Match....
Liverpool are on a mission but in today they play the "away form specialists of the Competition".
Now excuse f**king me Crocker but haven't we won all our away games except the one against those Manc Cu*ts where we drew?
I thought we would be the Home and Away day specialists considering our exceptional record this Season!!!
Haha. I guess we ARE
the away form specialists.
But in fairness to old Ian, he has to say SOMETHING
to make it sound like an appealing matchup for viewers. It reminds me of the old Richard Lewis comedy bit about pro wrestling announcers - where the names of the respective fighters would give away what was going to happen.
"In THIS corner, please welcome Hulk Hogan!
(or) Razor Ramon
! (or) Andre The GIANT!!!!
And in THAT corner, it's BOB, THE MAN WITH NO NECK! (or) LENNY, THE BEDRIDDEN JEW"
So for that game it would "The home side is Champions-Elect, current European and World Champion and Mentality Monsters LIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIVER
And the away side, the team that sold them some of their best players, perennial relegation-battlers, Saints!"
