They are still sticking around and singing YNWA. More than I can say for our fans unfortunately.
Too true. Our fans are an embarrassment when it comes to stuff like that. And i dont think its down to disappearance of terracing either. Keano's 'Prawn Sandwich Brigade' rant was excellent vision from him as that was nearly 10 years ago.

Bosses are more bothered bout attracting the higher calibre clientel rather than your Mr Working Class and are doing so by pricing them out of the tickets. Examples i have of times at Old Trafford where i knew times have changed includes a kid bout 9 asking during game if there was any brioche left!!!!! One woman sat on two cushions and another woman who sat at the side of me asked to swap with her husband as she couldnt stand me singing along.

The simple fact we need a designated space for people to sing is an embarrassment to type in itself

Spot on Ant. Something needs to change, but I have my doubts it ever will. Probably get worse if anything :frown: Keane's rant was a decade ago? :eek: wow time flies...

I'm a massive fan of Essien, and I said a while ago I thought he was the best midfielder in the Prem, and definitely one of the best in the World and tonight he was fantastic. MOTM imo. As for the result, I thought it would be a close game by Chelsea were deserved winners. Liverpoo can have no complaints about the scoreline imo.

We lost out on essien for sure. One of the best mids in the world. Can do it all. I am jealous we dont have him. He could be the steel that our midfield is so lacking right now.

I agree. I've always been hugely disappointed that we didn't make more of an effort to sign him. He's probably the player I'm most disappointed in missing out on.

For a change I'm actually glad I watched this fixture. Though it always feels weird cheering on Chelsea. Though I really wanted Liverpool in a European Cup final last year.

Drogba looked immense back to his former self. I always wondered how great the combo of Drogba and Rooney would have worked out. Drogba is amazing at holding the ball up and timing runs.

I cant believe their own fans have so little confidence and such disregard for CL:rolleyes:
I've been reading through RAWK and the majority of them are saying they're out of the CL and to concentrate on the PL.. They're all saying now that the PL was always the most important and that they now have to focus completley on winning it.. Some of them have even suggested putting out a Reserves team for the 2nd Leg:laugh:

they arent telling any lies, the fact is it is near impossible to go out to stamford bridge and score 3 goals on a chelsea side that seems to have found its swagger and that is extremely hard to score on.
