Don't Get Mad, GET EVEN !!!! and stay loyal to LFC

a

I have many friends who claimed themselves to be a Liverpool fan - Whom I greet and open my arms to and embrace them as if they were my long lost friends. I guess I am easy to be identified as a Liverpool fan, most of my shirts are with the Liver Bird emblem, be it original merchandise or otherwise. Mind you, I do have other shirts... hahaha... it's just that I am comfortable wearing the Bird on my weekends or on certain occasions, I think I must wear it due to my heavy investment in acquiring them expensive shirts!

Now what I want to convey here is about being a loyal fanatic fan. How do you behave and how do you carry yourself of being one? My principles on this matter is more of less the same with when I am attached to my working place. I must be loyal, defend my organisation to the utmost and sometimes, do the right marketing pertaining to the product.

In terms of being a fan of Liverpool Football Club, I simply think it is the same. We must be loyal - never flip flop to other teams when ever we have a bad situations. Evidently, supporting Liverpool all this years has taught me this aspect to the highest degree. Remember the time when Liverpool failed to register a win for 11 straight games? Those were the example I am referring to. I do believe people close to me would remember that I never once lost hope on the team to come out of the blues. In fact, after the 11th game, Liverpool then continue to win the whole next 12 games.

Amazing, isn't it? But where were you during those turbulence times? Jumped ship? Go making a fun on the players? Indulging the mud-slinging with other people from the opposing club in poking insult to Liverpool? That ... is something a loyal fan must not do, at all.

Among the so-called loyalist in my circle, there would a few who wanted to be heard. They have the ability to analyse the team, the individual players, the manager's tactics and even what the timing of the game (was it sandwiched between the UEFA Champions League and international game)... to me that is extra ordinary gift. Who cares what people might say about arm-chair critic? One must not be hindered to be heard simply because others refused to listen.

The same goes to our friend, Kajang-Today... I must say I am a bit perplexed with his posting this last 2 days. Apparently, he is still smarting on the failure of Liverpool to win the game. He even criticised me in his posting for declining to comment further on the futile game. I wish not to answer him now. I have no intention to wage a blog-war against Kajang-Today. After all, we're buddies and we're the same self-confessed Liverpool fanatic.

One side that I want to say about Kajang-Today is pertaining to him rather-robust criticism against every one in the team. The latest is Lucas Leiva. I'm not Rafa's apologist and in certain angle, I agree with Kajang-Today in questioning what was Rafa thinking when he preferred Lucas, Vi's-a-Vi's some other midfielder in the squad?

However, the manner that Kajang-Today lambasted Rafa, Lucas, Keane and every one else's - to me is a bit annoying. (Sorry bro. This is for the sake of discussion - no malice and nothing personal... I'm not using your birth name here) It is a bit annoying in the sense that why is that we - the self-confessed Liverpool fanatic going all out in condemning the team? Is it because the love for the club? So that entitled us to write anything under the sun about the team? Do you think by expressing your anger would help the team to prosper? Even the UK-based newspaper can't influence Rafa on his decision-making, what more to say about our Liverpool-blog?

By saying this, I'm not suggesting that we must refrain from criticising the team. Or write only the good stuff. It would be funny to read if we do so but then again, in our dedicated-to-Liverpool blog, I think it is a bit diversion and massive contempt if we go on attack and screwing the team. The writing must have pro and cons. If you can't write the positive only, try not to do other wise... as an article that filled with negatives only would easily turned us off. hehehe...

Kajang-Today... don't get mad on me... GET EVEN!

..to me, it is all frustrations la..frustration of opportunity lost. Players come, players go..managers come, managers go..but the fans are always here to stay. 18 years is a long time man..we need our fix and this season it is closer than what we have seen since last we won it.

one thing that Liverpool taught me all my life is "faith"... never lose faith for an instant no matter how bad they perform... i know Rafa also have signed some flop like the error-prone Josemi and the much-hyped Mark Gonzales but "faith", in Rafa we put our faith as he's our current manager... No matter how people called Kuyt as "kunyit" or Crouch as "bangau", we must keep on believing in them... Like i always tell my friends, a girl will always leave you but Liverpool will never let you walk alone...


(i wanna join utusanLFC's team but i'm so faraway... lol)
