This is the one and only time I'll be getting behind Liverpool but I really want them to win tonight.
For the odd folk that don't follow soccer that much, tonight is the second leg of the all-Premiership Champions League semi-final clash between Liverpool and Chelsea.
This match up has split opinion in teh pub, setting Man Utd fans against each other! I find myself in the minority of wanting Liverpool to win as it's normal for us to wish misfortune on the poorer half of scouseland - but I can't bring myself to want Chelsea to do well. Mainly because of their manager's narcissism. If they do win then obviously I will be supporting either PSV or Milan in the final, if you were wondering.
An interesting point to note is that if, by some fluke, Liverpool do end up winning the thing and finish below 4th in the Premiership then they will not be able to enter the competition next year. It would almost be worth them winning it just to see teh outrage it would cause in Merseyland.
A similar thing happened in Spain a few years ago, with Real Madrid winning the competition and not qualifying thro' La Liga. On that occasion, The Spanish F.A. decreed that Real Zaragoza (I think it was them) had to forfeit their place in the competition. I can't see that happening over here but the consternation it will cause would be entertaining.
