      This one will take a while to read but I thought it was full of substance. I'd be interested in everyone's thoughts on it.

      Kind of a tacit acknowledgement here that there is no football club like this club called Liverpool.

      Brought me to tears that, i don't mind admitting,  tears of pride, even for me being a 'Wool
      i feel the sense of pride the people of Liverpool must have for their club in Red, what they have been through, where they have been, and what they are achieving now,
      'This Means More' will only mean what it's actually saying to those who support This club and has experienced the last 30 yrs, most particularly if you are from the City, because you feel it more, your part of it,
      There is definitely something really special happening with our club right now, something we all need to behold, so we all need to embrace it, enjoy it and celebrate it, even if we were just to miss out,
      In the end whatever happens each and every one of us should  be proud of our club,
      I liked Neil Atkinson's quote;

      "How Can You Be Sad watching the best Liverpool side Ever"

      THIS MEANS MORE

      That post is excellent Robbie and it is a post every supporter should read.I have seen so many highs and lows over the years and all I wish for is number 19 to arrive at this great club of ours.It has been far too long and if ever a Liverpool squad deserve the title it is this squad.

      Thought it might evoke this kind of response. As much as I have grown to love Liverpool, I know it will never be the same as for someone who grew up with it, especially from Merseyside.

      Also as a former newspaperman, makes me glad to see.good journalism isn't totally deceased. (But it's on life support)

      Should I read it before the last match or after it?

      Too scared to read it at the moment mate. I can only imagine what the whole city of Liverpool would be feeling, I'm anxious and nervous myself already, maybe this article might freak the heart out more then it already is.
