Address: Petaling Jaya, Selangor Darul Ehsan, Malaysia
Interests: Anything that’s got to do with Liverpool Football Club
1. How long has it been since you supported Liverpool FC?
I have been supporting Liverpool since my primary school years. I was studying in grade 5 and hadn’t even reached my teens when I began to follow the club on a regular basis.
2. How did you become a Liverpool fan?
My interest towards the Mighty Reds started to grow through the influence of my uncle, who has been a loyal fan to the club for several decades. Through his influence, I followed all the games that Liverpool featured in and later knew about their glorious history. Supporting the club has certainly been one of the best things I have done in my life.
3. Who is your favorite Liverpool legend and why?
Steven Gerard. I choose him as my favorite legend as he was one of those players who had been loyal to the club from the time he was introduced to the pitch to his last farewell game. Despite dozens of attractive offers from many clubs, he chose to be absolutely loyal towards Liverpool. There will only be a few legends like Gerrard in the world of football who wouldn’t care about the millions of negative opinions and keep on being loyal to their club.
4. Who is your current favorite player in the team?
Philippe Coutinho. He has been in an excellent form of late and is surely one of the most crucial members in the team.
5. Which one player do you suggest the Liverpool board to buy and why?
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. He is very hardworking and I believe that he should join Liverpool and play with his former manager.
6. Given the chance to watch Liverpool play at Anfield, which opponent would you choose and why?
I would really want to watch the Merseyside Derby against neighborhood rivals Everton FC. Throughout the years, some of the best games I have watched have come between those two teams and seeing them live at Anfield would surely be a dream come true.
7. Can you recall the most memorable Liverpool FC match that you watched live?
Last season’s UEFA Europa League Quarter finals second leg fixture between Liverpool and Dortmund: perhaps one of the best comeback stories in the history of football.
8. Your favorite Liverpool goal?
The heading goal scored by Lovren in the Liverpool vs Dortmund game, the decider goal which has put the team to the semifinals.
9. What’s your expectation for Liverpool in the current season?
To continue the present form and stay relaxed; overcome all the opponents without many problems.
10. What’s the most memorable thing that you have done as a Liverpool fan?
To visit Liverpool early this year. I had initially only expected to watch the Liverpool vs Arsenal and Liverpool vs Manchester United games. However, I because of the help from some wonderful folks at the ticket counter I was also able to purchase a ticket for an additional game, which was the third round replay of the FA Cup between Liverpool and Exeter.
11. Your message to other Liverpool fans.
Always be loyal to the club. YNWA.
