Liverpool - European Champions

Let me just say that, as a Liverpool supporter, I am of course very happy with the result this morning. 1-0 down in the first minute was a shock, but at 32 minutes or so I thought the Reds could hang on till half time and bring my prediction of a 2-1 win to Liverpool true. That is until two more goals were scored and AC Milan took a 3-0 lead into half time. Liverpool's defence couldn't cope with Milan's attack, and it seemed the game was all but over. I'll admit, I was depressed.

Enter Liverpool coach Rafael Benitez. I don't know how you inspire a team to fight back, but Rafa did it, and the Reds came out firing in the second half. It was simply amazing to see Liverpool score 3 in the space of 6 minutes, led by the mercurial Steven Gerrard. Hang on till the end with some unexpectedly solid saves from Jerzy Dudek, win the penalty shootout and thank you very much for coming.

It will be a shame, nay, an outrage(!), if Liverpool don't get to play in the Champion's League next season, even after having won it. But that's alright, they'll be making inroads in the Premier League on the back of this form.

This is what I like to hear from Stevie Gerrard in his post-match interview (video available from first link), concering rumours of him moving to Chelsea:
"How can I leave after a night like this, and all the nights I've experienced over the season? [...] Greatest night of me life."
Benitez stunned by epic comeback

What the papers say

Uefa defiant over Liverpool entry

ps - yeah, Schapelle Corby... maybe. I guess we'll find out her verdict tomorrow.
