Good morning/evening everybody.
My name is Omar. I live in Montreal, Canada and I have been a big football fan all my life. I mainly watch Premier League and Bundesliga football. For as long as I can remember I've always had a soft spot for two teams: Liverpool and Borussia Dortmund.
Liverpool charmed me since my youngest age. First, because as an 8 or 9-year-old kid I liked teams that played in red
(never Manchester United and that ugly orangish red of theirs tho). Secondly, my father would always tell me how much Liverpool was the team to fear when he was growing up. Finally, the fans. I don't think you can watch a Liverpool FC game and just not notice how much the fans are a footballing jewel. The passion, the love for the players, the never-ending support no matter what. For some reason, I always end up feeling very emotional whenever I see the whole stadium singing YNWA at Anfield at the start of the game.
Of course, as my name (Omar) indicates it, I live in Canada, but both my parents are not originally from Canada. I am a Canadian of Egyptian origin (another Egyptian! You guys must've had it with us since Salah joined
). This brings me to what made me do the jump in terms of joining a forum, buying LFC shirts,etc....Mohamed Salah. While I have been regularly watching Liverpool games for a long time now, I now feel like I want to join discussions, debates and general talk about the team.
My favorite current LFC player (apart from Salah) is Mane. Favorite LFC player of all time is Charlie Adam...joke, what an abysmal year that was. It's actually Stevie G (of course)!
I am looking forward to having lots of discussions, debates and overall a lot of fun with you guys!
PS: I also watch Hockey (you kinda have to when you live in Canada otherwise they cut your free supply of Maple Syrup).
