Finally the season has started! The first game against Arsenal ended with a draw. We were down to ten men and the straight red was just ridiculous. These are the facts. But what we really saw is what we missed all the last season. The spirit of our club. The players showed real commitment today. Let’s name a few: Skrtel gets the ball between his legs and he is not whining on the floor, NO he stood up, fighting for the team. Agger has been groggy, has been told to stay off the pitch by the doctor but NO he got on the pitch, fighting for the team. Carra was down but still got the ball and pushed it away. I could go on and on… What I think is also important for the team is that N’gog is finally gearing up. He showed today that he got real skill. His goal was very important and it was like one of Torres’ goal. Well the goal at the end was disappointing, we would have deserved the 3 points. But we can’t blame Pepe. He saved Rosicky’s attempt. He also was brilliant during the game and maybe also the sun was shining too hard. It was one silly mistake with a lot of bad luck! But he was, is and will be important for us. Ah well and I won’t start about the ref and the red card because that would reduce my happiness over today’s game. So what I think we should keep on going this season: the confidence, the spirit, the commitment, the positive energy and the fighting spirit!
After the game I’ve been flicking through the channels and onerepublic’s marchin’ on came on. So that’s my motto for this season: we’re marchin on, we’re marchin on!
You’ll Never Walk Alone
