Win the SUPER CUP

Why we are going to bring the UEFA Super Cup home.

Ok, so we did loose against CSKA Sofia 1-0 but still I knew we would make it to the group's stage. We were set in against Chelsea after we lost our country protection for finishing in fifth, but for the life of me I can't remember when Chelsea lost their country protection. Hey, we beat them in the semi-final of the Champions' League; we might as well beat them in the group stages.

The other two teams are Anderlecht and Real Betis. I think we will make it up another stage, but then it will be hard, not saying that it's easy right now.

Ok, so let me correct my previous post, in 2001, a very memorable year, we won five trophies; I don't even know what to call that. I'll call it a pentio. Of course the Super Cup we are playing for today could have been ours two more times, but we let it go because we were too busy.

We will win today, especially since the manager put on rests a few players in the CSKA Sofia match (that's why we lost!!!) and saved them for today. How many goals will we score is the question. ;)

Break a leg, LIVERPOOL
