March 23, 2006


I've just realised how people call Liverpool the team of the 70's and 80's and people call Manyoo the team of the 90's. Supposedly we are in decline and hence would never be the team of the new millenium.

But thinking about it, we've won 3 league titles - in 2000, 2001 and 2003 (and soon to be 2006). Arsenal have only won 2 (2002 & 2004), Chelsea have won one (2005). So actually, we are STILL the team of the new millenium.

And actually, thinking back, a lot of things happened in 1990 :

Personally, I had just started Standard 1.

Politically, they released Nelson Mandela from prison, tore down the Berlin Wall and Margaret Tatcher resigned as the Prime Minister of the UK.

Technologically, the world wide web was launced.

Also, we were singing Vanilla Ice's ICE ICE BABY and New Kids on the Block's Step by Step and Julia Roberts played a whore in Pretty Woman.

Most importantly it was the year in which Liverpool last won the league.
