Tonight is going to be a very big night for Liverpool FC as they will go head to head with the Italian outfit Inter Milan in the Champions League. Liverpool will try to bounce back after a shock defeat by Barnsley in the FA Cup last weekend. The only positive thing to look forward to is that Liverpool has no injury worries ahead of this clash, so that means Liverpool will go into this game with a strong line up (hopefully)
The game will be at Anfield where the Reds will have to conjure up a win before travelling to Italy for the second leg match in 2 weeks time. This will be the first time both teams will meet in the history of the Champions League and certainly Inter will not take things for granted even though the Reds were defeated last weekend. Anfield will be in a totally different mood tonight as usual. I can imagine a capacity crowd with a totally awesome environment.
Torres will be back for this clash as well as the captain Steven Gerrard. The only players out are Daniel Agger and Andriy Voronin.

I was called up the other by a good friend asking if i was interested in joining the Brunei Liverpool Supporters. And of course, being a true red, i duly obliged to go for a brief coffee session with the President and the VP to discuss what the club is all about. It seems like a good idea to actually set up our local fan base here in Brunei considering the fact that almost all of the neighbouring countries have their own Liverpool Fan Club base. I think in Brunei, the only major clubs that have strong supporters base are Liverpool and Manchester United. The minorities are the likes of Arsenal, Chelse, Spurs, Evertons and a few others.
As far as i know, the Brunei Liverpool Supporters Club is just waiting to get the green light from the AG Chambers and just waiting (hopefully by next month) to be affiliated with Liverpool FC Association of International Branches. Now thats gonna be a very big step for a true Red here in Brunei. Some activities are already in the pipeline as well for the fans and merchandises are waiting to be given a nod should the affiliation is completed.
I myself cannot wait to become a legal (so to speak) Liverpool Fan in Brunei. Exciting times ahead for Liverpool Fans here in Brunei. 🙂 For those who are interested in becoming a Liverpool Supporter in Brunei…go and visit the official website at http://www.bruneireds.com
