mcgillianaire: (Changing Guard London)
...I arrived in London to settle here permanently. The photos below were taken on the night and subsequent morning of that memorable journey. It was my first flight to Blighty in three years - and I only stayed a night on that occasion - so this was actually my first proper visit in nearly four years. I was over the moon, making childhood dreams come true and all that jazz.


With mum at check-in in Muscat (then Seeb) International Airport. Dad had a separate flight that night to attend a conference in Italy. I think my sis was still in India. You can see bits of my Liverpool jersey that I was wearing in honour of the Champions League Final that was taking place as we were flying towards the Continent. The Mighty Reds were taking on The Rossoneri (AC Milan) in Athens. The pilot was kind enough to give us two score updates along the way. Unfortunately, we lost 2-1.

mcgillianaire: (Liverpool FC)
If Nottingham Forest defeat Luton tonight, they will play Liverpool in the next round of the FA Cup. I will definitely be supporting Forest in that game. Meanwhile, Liverpool's future in the European Cup hinges on a victory over Marseilles away from home tonight, or a draw if Besiktas upset Porto away. It's the 3rd LFC game I'll be following on the radio at work. Let's home The Reds & Forest win. YNWA!

UPDATE: (12 mins)
WE'RE ALREADY TWO GOALS UP THROUGH GERRARD & TORRES!!!!!!!!!!!

TRIVIA:
Why are the Liverpool jerseys sponsorless for tonight's match?

UPDATE 2: (Halftime)
Porto leads Besiktas 1-0 and we're still 2-0 up. As it stands we're going through in 2nd place!

UPDATE 3: (48 mins)
KUYT! 3-0! We're going through! This is our season! 25 goals in the last 7 games.

UPDATE 4: (Full time)
4-0! Gerrard, Torres, Kuyt & Babellll! We're through! But unfortunately Forest have lost to Luton...
