I have just joined Empire of the Kop, and what a time to join. What we thought was the season turning around at the start of January has led to 2 losses back to back and seems to most as the season crumbling around us again. But I tell you follow Kopites, it is far from that.
I”m Martin Turner, a 21 year old man from St Helens, England, a mere 20 minute drive from Liverpool. Living near Liverpool there are a lot of fellow reds around me, but unfortunatley, there are also a lot of Man United and Everton fans around as well. It comes to something when Everton fans are laughing at us and not fearing playing us. It’s all a state of mind, all in our heads.
People say that Rafa Benitez is not the man for us, that he’s lost it, he’s lost the touch that won us the Champions League in 2005. But you forget, this is the same Rafa that won us that trophy in 2005, the same Rafa that won us the FA Cup in 2006, the same Rafa that brought us one of the best strikers in world football in Fernando Torres and also the same Rafa that got us into our best domestic position in years last season. EVERY team is entitled to have a bad season, and yeah this is ours. I have full confidence that next year it will be different, we just have to keep faith and stay behind the team!
We are Liverpool FC and never ever forget it!
