The road to Athens ran into a dead-end last night in Greece as Liverpool FC lost in the Champions League Final. Congratulations to AC Milan and their supporters for winning their 7th European Cup. Liverpool are left to rue missed opportunities and despite playing very attractive football and creating several gilt-edged chances, we were unable to finish all night long; Only the hard-working Dirk Kuyt's consolation goal in the dying minutes gave us hope of another miracle against Milan. It was not to be.

I won't point fingers, but Rafa Benitez (our manager and tactical master) knows that changes have to be made to the team in order to achieve our ambitions at the top levels of European football; He's already announced his plans for change a mere day after our team, notorious for winning Cup Finals, lost the biggest match of the year. I'll admit, we've been spoiled by success in recent years; Two European Finals (one win), an FA Cup. I believe in Rafa and Liverpool to overcome this set back and get it right next year, both in the league and in Europe. I am looking forward to big things and a fun summer of transfers. You'll Never Walk Alone! Roll on 2007/08!
