Scousers Go Mental!

Writing about web page

So Mourinho has his millions and Ferguson has his wonderkinds and Wenger has his Henry… and who wins to bloody European Cup? Djimi Traore. Jerzey Dudek. My dad's mate Paul Vladimir Smicer.

Mum's gone mental, I couldn't get a single coherent word out of her beyond the phrase "oh my god" on repeat. She's been supporting Liverpool for about 50 years now. I guess you never know in this game. And though we won nothing it gives me that stupid irrational hope again. It also made me realise that I really will support the English team no matter who they are provided they aren't Arsenal. It wasn't as good as six years ago, but it was good.

There'll be Scousers everywhere tonight. Millions of them. For now Dudek is my new hero. I really never thought I'd ever say that. Carragher was man of the match for me but Gerrard and Hamann and Vladimir Smicer, even if he does look like my dad's mate Paul, were amazing.

God, I'd hate to be an Evertonian tonight. Or Michael Owen.
