March was a hot and cold season for us. 2 wins and +4 GD in the PL but bowing out of the Europa League with two games without a goal and losing out by the virtue of one ill-conceded penalty. Apart from that, there was the international break which is always unbearably long. When much needed football returned, the result was a terrible one for us craving for LFC action and wanting them to put their run to a top-4/5 finish into overdrive.
Staying in India, the intermittent time was absorbed with a 6 week long Cricket World Cup, which also meant that some games were either not on TV or were hardly watched (WBA game which coincided with the CWC final). It’s time to get back our football. It’s also the time to reflect on the last memories of football from what now seems ages. I’m sharing a few snapshots of the Delhi Kop [the word ‘Kop’ is used here with liberty and without accreditation from people living in Liverpool since it is fealt that Kop is now an English language word and can be used by any Liverpool Football Club fan] celebrating in the CBD of Delhi on an otherwise dull Sunday evening.
Starting off with Happy Birthday to the King!
Calm before the storm…
Appealing to the referee… guess he could almost hear!
No adjectives left
Still celebrating after the game (about 90 minutes after the whistle)
Unlike some players, the fans absolutely, totally love the badge!
And as magnanimous as we might be, some victories are never complete unless you get to taunt some under-privileged!
This essay wouldn’t have been complete without the look on these guys’ faces. Thank you guys!
Thanks to LFC who made it a memorable evening.
Special thanks to the Delhi Supporters’ Group who compiled and organized such a fantabulous event. Reds from Delhi can check out their page to connect. Surrounded with dimwits who support other clubs, this is the community for better IQ and EQ people in the city.
