‘There’s not one club in the world so united with the fans.
I sat there watching the Liverpool fans and they sent shivers down my spine.
A mass of 40,000 became one force behind their team’ – Johan Cruyff
Anfield. Where champions fall and legends are made.
Anfield. Official home of Liverpool Football Club since 1892.
Anfield. A stadium that has seen some wonderful domestic triumphs, and some outstanding European comebacks.
I was young when I first went to Anfield. Not too young mind, although not yet a teen. I watched the Reds play (and win) with all the shock and awe you would expect from someone witnessing their childhood heroes play football on the hallowed turf of Anfield.
However, this is not a post about my first experience of watching Liverpool play at Anfield, but rather my first visit to Anfield Stadium. In my opinion, that means it has to include a stadium tour. Therefore, my first “visit” to Anfield didn’t occur until much later. 2010 in fact.
I wouldn’t go as far to say that the stadium tour was a “dream come true”, but it may as well have been. Walking around, I tried to soak up every little bit of history. My eyes feasted on the glories of the clubs past. They danced around the trophies on display. The whole experience was absolutely amazing and I truly did not want it to end.
