That’s the battle cry tonight Grovers, straight from the greatest film ever made ‘Gladiator’.
The World make Liverpool favourites, so we have our backs to the wall, just like we did against the scousers in 89, Parma in Copenhagen, Madrid at the Bernabeu and Milan in the San Siro.
The common denominator in all of those games? We won, and with the team fired up after two worthless draws, we can go and win this, shut their obnoxious crowd up and leave them with nothing this season.
Win tonight and we can win at Old Trafford on Sunday and go on and win the double.
What we need today is positive vibes from all our supporters all over the world, the team will feel it if we shout loud enough, this season was meant to be ours, remember the last time we were written off with a young team? It was Real Madrid away in this same competition, we can do it, but you grovers need to do your bit, a fired up day on the blog and it’s ours I feel.
Onto Quaresma, they say we’re on for a cut price deal but I’m not convinced he’ll come to us when the others can pay more for his salary, I’m also not sure why they think because Porto are in trouble he’ll go cheap???
I think he would be perfect for us, as I think Ben Arfa or Benzema would be but if I had a choice, it would be a tough one, we can’t have them both as they have fallen out by all accounts.
I am going to pick my team for tonight but I’m not so sure he’ll agree, but here goes.
Eboue Gallas Senderos Clichy
Hleb Cesc Flamini Theo
I picked Eboue over Kolo as I think he’s a better right back than Kolo, but not a lot between them, I’d favour Hleb out wide with Theo on the other side as one has impact, the other has something to make up for his decision not to shoot on Saturday.
Robin and Ade up front so we do a 4-4-2, I may be tempted to start Robin with Bendtner but he won’t drop Ade, he won’t drop Kolo either so in truth the team will probably look like this.
Kolo Gallas Senderos Clichy
Eboue Cesc Flamini Diaby
With Robin Theo and Bendtner on the bench with Hoyte.

It’s a must win tonight, so get plenty of beer and wine inside you, strap yourself in and pray the boys read this!
Have a great night Grovers, we need it, England expects – Lord Nelson on the eve of Trafalgar!
