Kaelen’s Football Club – Liverpool FC

Kaelen's Football Club - Liverpool FC

You either pick your own football club or your Dad or brothers make you pick the same club they support.

Dad started to support Liverpool FC in 1996, when they were defeated by your Grandpa’s football club Manchester United in the FA Cup final. Dad’s love for the club grew in tandem with his fascination with The Beatles, which were a bunch of fun musicians from Liverpool. Dad looks forward to sharing their music with you, just like he did with your Aunt Jess and Uncle Eugene.

Liverpool FC‘s glory days have long gone, but their supporters still remain. It’s largely because of the emotional bond their supporters have with the club. The club is associated, and sometimes blamed for two football stadium disasters in the 80s, which saw the loss of precious lives. Families lost their relatives who went to a football match and never came home.

Our club dealt with the disasters with dignity. In the aftermath of Hillsborough, our then-manager Kenny Dalglish made an effort to attend every victim’s funeral. When he was unable to, he would send his players to do so. “They supported Liverpool,” he told those close to him, “now it is the turn of Liverpool Football Club to support them.”

To give you a head start in your football supporting life, here’s Dad’s collection of Liverpool FC shirts that you will inherit.

Supporting Liverpool FC is like life, full of up and downs and you don’t win every time. They’ve been consistently inconsistent for as long as Dad has been supporting them, and these days, he just hopes that they attempt to entertain, and have a bit of conviction in their games. They’ve never won the English League in Dad’s supporting life, and Dad hopes they do in yours.

Even if they never do so, Liverpool FC is more than a football club Kaelen, it is a family. And family stick together through good times and bad. Here are the lyrics of our club’s anthem, which is your Dad’s lullaby to you.

When you walk through a storm
Hold your head up high
And don’t be afraid of the dark
At the end of the storm
Is a golden sky
And the sweet silver song of a lark
Walk on through the wind
Walk on through the rain
Though your dreams be tossed and blown
Walk on walk on with hope in your heart
And you’ll never walk alone
You’ll never walk alone
Walk on walk on with hope in your heart
And you’ll never walk alone
