We’ve had The Egyptian King song, and now Liverpool fans have a new chant that celebrates the feel-good factor around the Reds this season.
Saturday may have seen a 2-1 defeat for Liverpool, but you’d never have known it from the travelling Reds at Old Trafford
Sky Sports’ footage at full time panned to fans celebrating their team – but those supporters were in Old Trafford’s away end.
Just as the travelling Kop had drowned out United’s PA system pre-match with their Allez, Allez, Allez chant, it continued long after the players had left the pitch.
With a post-match lock-in customary for Liverpool fans at Old Trafford, this was no time to feel upset about a defeat. Instead, fans showed the optimism surrounding the club under Jurgen Klopp this season.
It’s been nine years since the Reds were in a Champions League quarter-final, and with Friday’s draw on the horizon, it’s a sign of the huge progress being made.
Supporters are enjoying watching their team again and there’s a feeling that the good times are returning – songs and scenes like this were commonplace under Rafa Benitez’s best years a decade ago.
The new Allez, Allez, Allez song started in the pubs around Anfield in recent weeks and had its first airing on the Kop against Porto last week. It’s a tune you can’t get out your head.
Let’s hope for a big European opponent in Friday’s draw.
We’ve conquered all of Europe
We’re never gonna stop
From Paris down to Turkey
We’ve won the fucking lot
Bob Paisley and Bill Shankly
The Fields of Anfield Road
We are loyal supporters
And we come from Liverpool
Allez Allez Allez
