who is the champion?

2 years ago, i blog about liverpool's first european night under gerrard. and tonight, it is liverpool vs ac milan. The repeat of 2005. The record breaking historic event. A night made for heroes. A night where millions rejoice and thousands heartbreaks.....

In another 2 more hours or less, it is the final Champions League match between Liverpool FC and AC Milan. It is the repeat of the 2005, the same finalist but different stadium. 17 players from both team who played against each other 2 years ago will play again each other again tonight.

Let me recap, in 2005, Liverpool was 3 goals down on first half but they make an incredible 6 minutes comeback where Gerrard, Alonso and Smicer scored. Both team levelled at 3-3 ... and remain that way til extra time. no goals and the trophy was won by Liverpool when Dudek make that incredible save on Shevchenko's penalty kick.

So who is going to win tonight? i am sure there will not be a repeat of the 6 minutes maniac comeback made by liverpool. the game is going to be very tight. both team has change and progress alot over the 2 years. Something is me tells me that it is AC Milan's year, but then.. I know my Red is capable of lifting the 6th trophy!

I would love then to lift that trophy. i would like them to bring back the trophy and see how the whole city would be flooded with Reds fan! I would love a repeat of 2005!

As i am typing this, i am watching the 2005 match repeat on ESPN. just finish watching the penalty shootout, the incredible save made by dudek on Svechenko's, and the memoriable moment when gerrard lifted his first CL trophy.


Anyway...will blog tomorrow from work ... c u then

p/s: my support is always with LIVERPOOL! YNWA!
