Today March 7th marks the 2nd birthday of Empire of The Kop, what started with a few Facebook friends has now grown into one of the largest fan football communities in the world.
Can’t tell you how honoured I am and can’t thank you for the wonderful experience, the last two years have been tremendous. We at Liverpool boast about our history however I strongly believe the events of the last two years have been some of the most monumental in our long glorious history. Just a few days after EOTK launched we beat Real Madrid 4-0 and then Manchester United 4-1. We witnessed Liverpool in the bottom three and then Hicks and Gillett being ousted in a High Court drama and new responsible owners coming in. We saw King Kenny return and Fernando Torres betraying us with a British record transfer fee. The club turned around and also broke the club record with the signing of Andy Carroll for a staggering £35 million. We have seen the emergency of many hopeful prospects in the youth team and the return to the Liverpool Way under the leadership of Kenny Dalglish.
When I launched EOTK my objective was to unite Liverpool supporters from all over the world and I believe that EOTK has met that objective and some. Of course this would not have been possible without the writers, contributors, Facebook fans and the thousands of Twitter followers.
