1. How long has it been since you supported Liverpool FC?
I have been supporting Liverpool FC since I was 13 years old and supporting Liverpool is definitely among the best things I have done in my life. Although, they sometimes make me happy sometimes makeme cry but its definitely been worth watching them play.
2. How did you become a Liverpool fan?
Actually, I started playing football since I was 8 years old. Then, I didn’t know much about any football club. Yet, after watching the Champions league final of 2005 against AC Milan, I started loving the REDS and I have been a loyal fan for a decade now!
3. Who is your favorite Liverpool legend and why?
Honestly i am a huge fan of ‘Captain Fantastic’ Steven Gerrard because his presence in the ground really make a big difference. The way he manages to lift the team’s morale- he is truly a great leader and an outstanding captain. But I am really sad that he is leaving! I wish he could stay for some more years.
4. Who is your current favorite player on the team?
Raheem sterling. He could prove to be really valuable for a long time in the future.
5. Which one player do you suggest the Liverpool board to buy this season and why?
Karim Benzema. We really need a striker pf his caliber- someone who can fill the gap of Luis Suarez… and since Steven Gerrard is leaving, I wish we sign Pogba too. Gosh, he is true genius. He would be a perfect replacement to replace Steven Gerrard.
6. Given the chance to watch Liverpool play at Anfield, which opponents would you choose and why?
Chelsea! It’s because I hate Jose Mourinho and I would pay anything to watch his disappointed face when Liverpool defeat Chelsea.
7. Which new signing(s) in Liverpool are you most happy with in the current season?
Alberto Moreno and Emre Can have definitely been the best signings for Liverpool this season. Yet, they still need to establish themselves. BR should play them more.
8. Your favorite Liverpool match (that you watched live)?
Of course, its the Istanbul champions league final of 2005. It was the game that made me fall in love with football.
9. Your favorite Liverpool goal?
Luis Garcia the ghost goal. Chelsea got what they deserved!
10. What’s your expectation for Liverpool this season?
Although the season hasn’t been too good, I believe that Liverpool will definitely finish in the top 4.
11. What’s the most memorable thing that you have done as a Liverpool fan?
Well, I can tell you all of a day, when I became both happy and sad. I still vividly remember the game on May 8, 2012 when Liverpool convincingly beat Chelsea 4-1 at Stamford Bridge. I was watching the match at my friend’s place sitting on a plastic chair. When the referee blew the full time whistle I stood and jumped up on the chair in excitement. But, then the chair broke down as it couldn’t handle my weight and sadly I ended up fracturing my hand.
12. Your message to other Liverpool fans.
We all have been disappointed this season as we haven’t been able to play as brilliantly as we played during our 2013/2014 campaign. But ‘at the end of the storm, is a golden sky’. Be a true fan who will support the Reds, in their ups and downs. I am a Red and I will remain a Reds forever. Let’s all cherish being a fan of the mighty Liverpool. YNWA.
