“History is great but it’s only to remember”
I am a Man United supporter and I am desperately hoping that Liverpool does the quadruple. Heresy? Perhaps, but I feel the only way for this club to move forward, and kill off the nostalgia/banter club we have become, once and for all, is for Liverpool to do that unthinkable feat.
We’ve already reached a playing low point, and a Liverpool quadruple would represent an organisational nadir as well. Sometimes you have to hit rock bottom…
The quadruple would be the mirror that this club needs. Ferguson, the Treble, and 2008–amazing times, but that is the past.
This is from Jurgen Klopp’s first interview as Liverpool manager in 2015:
“At the moment, all of the LFC family is a little bit too nervous, a little bit too pessimistic, too often in doubt. They all celebrate the game, it’s a great atmosphere in the stadium, but they don’t believe at the moment. They only want to see five years ago, 10 years ago, 20 years ago. History is great but it’s only to remember.”
This is both eerily familiar, and prescient.
So, come on Liverpool, you might just be doing us a favor.
