I received this letter from an LFC Supporter in Venezula and I am publishing the whole thing.
Hi, I just watched the FIFA Club World Cup final it was an incredible match, Barcelona showed al their power and confirmed they’re the best team of the world but they had a hard time against Estudiantes de la Plata, “el Pincha” bossed the midfield in the first half and at half time they were 1-0, then in second half Barcelona tried, tried and tried until they scored with just one minute left on the regular time. Then in extra time Barcelona scored again and I thought it was over, but if you have the chance to watch the game DO IT! The argies showed they have heart for football, they tried to tie the game perhaps all the players were exhausted and barely could walk but the 5000 fans who travel all the way to Dubai to support their team didn’t stop supporting and singing and bouncing, and I think the players thought they needed to do it for all those fans, they gave everything, they were playing with the heart in their hands.
My point is, our players need something of that spirit, we’re week after week, everyday giving then our support but they seem to be dead… they need to step up for us like we’re stepping up for them, they need to regain that spirit from Istanbul, because that’s Liverpool FC about, spirit, that bond between fans and players, I will not blame Rafa because I don’t think he’s the problem, he has made a few bad choices about tactics but what I’ve seen in the last matches wasn’t tactics failures, it was lack of spirit, heart and soul.
I will not stop supporting, I believe in my team, our team, I’ll wait to see the golden sky after the storm, but the sky will only clear if the spirit of our players begin to shine again, if their hearts start showing that heat to ignite our game. I can only provide them with more and more faith, support and love, game after game I put my heart in those 11 redmen on the field and it’s time for those redmen to put their hearts out for us.
I’m young, I haven’t seen a lot of football in my life but I know Liverpool FC is the greatest club in the world, is a big family and as a family me and every single Liverpool fan around the world won’t stop showing how much we love our club.
