Captain Steven Gerrard’s goal-scoring header leads the way to victory against Milan. The Liverpool fans jump to their feet, singing ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’ and scream ‘GOAL!’ at the 2005 UEFA Champions League final in Istanbul.
The biggest sporting moments from the best of British, including Lewis Hamilton, have been immortalised on canvas and will be auctioned from September 4 to 14 for Willow – the only national charity working with seriously ill young adults aged 16 to 40 to fulfil uplifting and unforgettable Special Days. The artworks will be on show at a public exhibition, September 9 & 10 at Bonhams, London W1.
Britain’s top sporting heroes Mo Farah; Lewis Hamilton; AP McCoy; Theo Walcott; Steven Gerrard; Wayne Rooney; Andy Murray; Sir Bradley Wiggins; Sir Ben Ainslie; Ian Poulter; Justin Rose; Hannah Cockroft and Christine Ohuruogu have all taken part in Sportwaves. The stunning collection depicts a fine art portrait of the sportsmen and women in action, combined with a digital soundwave of the moment captured.
Each original artwork has been signed by the sporting great and will be available to view at the public exhibition, and to bid for online in the charity auction. Artwork is available to view now at www.sportwaves.org
Each piece has been created by artist Rob Highton, whose stunning work includes paintings of sporting heroes, music and popular culture, and Tim Wakefield, a new media artist whose work features the exuberant infusion of digital sound waves with paintings.
“The combination of fine art and high profile sporting heroes is an exciting match for any sport or art lover. The Sportwaves collection captures special moments in sporting history. Funds raised at auction will enable Willow to provide its own special moments for those living with life threatening conditions at a time when they need it most,” said Bob Wilson, Willow co-founder and Life President.
To date Willow has provided more than 10,000 Special Days for people living with cancer, cystic fibrosis, motor neurone disease, muscular dystrophy, organ failure and Huntington’s, amongst other conditions. These Special Days enable them and their families to reconnect and refocus on each other while enjoying an activity of their choosing. A day for them, a day about them and a day that will create memories they will treasure forever.
Willow was founded by former Arsenal goalkeeper and TV presenter, Bob Wilson and his wife, Megs, as a lasting memorial to their daughter, Anna, who died of cancer aged 31.

Rodgers: “Balotelli is a big talent. I saw that in this time at Inter Milan as a young player. He is quick and his touch is terrific.”
Early morning comments coming out from Rodgers on Balotelli will surely make reporters go mad. Probably not as mad as liverpool fans seems to have gone about the possibility of getting Rues but expect some speculation for us to be linked with the troublesome Italian. I personaly dont believe we will go after him because of his attitude on the pitch but it has to be said he has alot of talent. Even if he does throw it away sometimes…
The Northern Irish man also stated that he will be playing a strong team when we play Inter Milan, a win from this game will put us in the final with the possibility to play Manchester United (who are currently on 5 points.) AS Roma and Inter Milan are on 3 points.
Recent signing Origi will officially go out on loan again to Lille next season, a lot of fans see this as a confusing move since we are being heavily linked with forwards after the Remy deal through. Bony and Levezzi the main names thrown around. Nothing seems to be close at the moment for attackers where as Manquillo and Moreno seem very close with reports saying we will sign the fall backs as soon as next week. With Glen Johnson playing terrible in pre season training this will be a breath of fresh air for the Kop faithful.
What ever happens with all these friendlies and transfers Rodgers has promised to bring the old days back to Anfield promising silver ware in the future of LFC and I am pretty sure he doesn’t mean the Guinness International Cup.
Out of the new player we have signed I have seen promise. My personal favouret is calm and collective Can, he looks confotable and strong on the ball and in my opinion we have been weak in midfield for a long time so i believe this will be a major signing if the early signs are something to go by. Markovic has made me worry only playing one game but when i saw him i was also impressed with his pace and i cant wait to see him and Sterling on the same pitch running at defenders and swopping wings. Lambert hasnt impressed me as of yet for Liverpool but I was a fan of his last year and cant have a bad oppinion of someone who just looks so happy to play for us.
Lillana I think is a great talent and Lovren also but I dont really want to comment to much until i have seen them in Liverpool shirts playing alongside our team.
What ever happens we follow and hopefully next season they will make us dream again…
