It is, as calls to arms go, straightforward. Crystal clear. And if you aren't looking forward to Spurs and Kazan, to Southampton and Bournemouth, if that just doesn't get you going, wanting to be emotional, unashamedly emotional, optimistic, passionate in a way that outsiders love to mock and our own meek minded souls call 'embarrassing' then you know what? There's the door. There is the door, and you can walk through it, and both you and us will be happier for that.

I've still got Paul Scholes' shirt at home which I swapped with him once. When I was at Liverpool he was one of the players I liked most. Maybe he's not valued as much as he should be in England because of the style of football there and because he keeps a low profile. Perhaps he would have been more valued in Spain, where midfielders like him form part of the 'ideal.' Fans in Spain rate him very highly and I admire him a huge amount.Xabi Alonso Liverpool's Sayings By Xabi Alonso: I've still got Paul Scholes' shirt at home which I swapped with him once. When

Terrible.Eamon Liverpool's Sayings By Eamon: I was hoping in the last fifteen minutes that Barcelona would beat them. I've made

There's not one club in Europe with an anthem like You'll Never Walk Alone. There's not one club in the world so united with their fans.

For that I admire Liverpool more than anything.Johan Cruijff Liverpool's Sayings By Johan Cruijff: There's not one club in Europe with an anthem like You'll Never Walk Alone. There's

One of the reasons I chose to come to Liverpool was because of the mentality of the club. It's a working club and a working city. I don't know why, but I feel like one of the people here.

I think they're happy with me here.Fernando Torres Liverpool's Sayings By Fernando Torres: One of the reasons I chose to come to Liverpool was because of the mentality
Liverpool's grand opera also gave us some light comedy - on hearing the news that the house of goalkeeper Pepe Reina was burgled, and his Porsche stolen, while he was heroically saving penalties at Anfield, fans took a typically witty line: police were said to be interviewing a man from the West London area, a certain Frank Lampard, whose whereabouts on Tuesday between 7.45pm and 10.15pm are unknown. Indeed.Declan Lynch Liverpool's Sayings By Declan Lynch: Liverpool's grand opera also gave us some light comedy - on hearing the news that
The Beatles were hard men too. Brian Epstein cleaned them up for mass consumption, but they were anything but sissies. They were from Liverpool, which is like Hamburg or Norfolk, Virginia
a hard, sea-farin' town, all these dockers and sailors around all the time who would beat the piss out of you if you so much as winked at them. Ringo's from the Dingle, which is like the f***ing Bronx. The Rolling Stones were the mummy's boys
they were all college students from the outskirts of London. They went to starve in London, but it was by choice, to give themselves some sort of aura of disrespectability. I did like the Stones, but they were never anywhere near the Beatles
not for humour, not for originality, not for songs, not for presentation. All they had was Mick Jagger dancing about. Fair enough, the Stones made great records, but they were always s**t on stage, whereas the Beatles were the gear.

The first thing we did was to proclaim our Liverpoolness to the world, and say 'It's all right to come from Liverpool and talk like this'.

Christ, he was paranoid about criticism. I used to say: why doesn't he worry about the team and forget what people are saying?

Woolf turned her back on a number of tokens of her rising eminence in the 1930s, including an offer of the Companion of Honour award, an invitation from Cambridge University to give the Clark lectures, and honorary doctorate degrees from Manchester University and Liverpool University.

Indeed, these are the great lingering questions of the Lusitania affair: Why, given all the information possessed by the Admiralty about U-20; given the Admiralty's past willingness to provide escorts to inbound ships or divert them away from trouble; given that the ship carried a vital cargo of rifle ammunition and artillery shells; given that Room 40's intelligence prompted the obsessive tracking and protection of the HMS Orion; given that U-20 had sunk three vessels in the Lusitania's path; given Cunard chairman Booth's panicked Friday morning visit to the navy's Queenstown office; given that the new and safer North Channel route was available; and given that passengers and crew alike had expected to be convoyed to Liverpool by the Royal Navy - the question remains, why was the ship left on its own, with a proven killer of men and ships dead ahead in its path?Erik Larson Liverpool's Sayings By Erik Larson: Indeed, these are the great lingering questions of the Lusitania affair: Why, given all the

The atmosphere
I never told you this but I always thought the club should have recognised you far more when you retired.

I used to go round to Aunt Mimi's house and John would be at the typewriter, which was fairly unusual in Liverpool. None of my mates even knew what a typewriter was. Well they knew what it was but they didn't hae one. Nobody had one.Paul McCartney Liverpool's Sayings By Paul McCartney: I used to go round to Aunt Mimi's house and John would be at the
long. Trade has always traveled and the world has always traded. Ours, though, is the era of extreme interdependence. Hardly any nation is now self-sufficient. In 2011, the United Kingdom shipped in half of its gas. The United States relies on ships to bring in two-thirds of its oil supplies. Every day, thirty-eight million tons of crude oil sets off by sea somewhere, although you may not notice it. As in Los Angeles, New York, and other port cities, London has moved its working docks out of the city, away from residents. Ships are bigger now and need deeper harbors, so they call at Newark or Tilbury or Felixstowe, not Liverpool or South Street.Rose George Liverpool's Sayings By Rose George: long. Trade has always traveled and the world has always traded. Ours, though, is the

The sun of Sunday morning up out of the sleepless sea from black Liverpool. Sitting on the rocks over the water with a jug of coffee. Down there along the harbor pier, trippers in bright colors. Sails moving out to sea. Young couples climbing the Balscaddoon Road to the top of Kilrock to search out grass and lie between the furze. A cold green sea breaking whitely along the granite coast. A day on which all things are born, like uncovered stars.J.P. Donleavy Liverpool's Sayings By J.P. Donleavy: The sun of Sunday morning up out of the sleepless sea from black Liverpool. Sitting

I think the music reflects the state that the society is in. It doesn't suggest the state. I think the poets and musicians and artists are of the age - not only do they lead the age on, but they also reflect that age. [ ... ] Like The Beatles. We came out of Liverpool and we reflected our background and we reflected our thoughts in what we sang, and that's all people are doing.John Lennon Liverpool's Sayings By John Lennon: I think the music reflects the state that the society is in. It doesn't suggest
Wenger has been Arsenal's coach for 15 years but he hasn't won even a Carling Cup for six years. Benitez hasn't won a league title in six years but they continue to keep him as Liverpool's coach. This is not the Italian mentality. To stay here I must continue winning and do well.Jose Mourinho Liverpool's Sayings By Jose Mourinho: Wenger has been Arsenal's coach for 15 years but he hasn't won even a Carling
The climax came on May 1, when Liverpool and the Mersey were attacked for seven successive nights. Seventy-six thousand people were made homeless and three thousand killed or injured. Sixty-nine out of a hundred and forty-four berths were put out of action, and the tonnage landed for a while was cut to a quarter.Winston S. Churchill Liverpool's Sayings By Winston S. Churchill: The climax came on May 1, when Liverpool and the Mersey were attacked for seven
No money in this world could convince me to play for Liverpool. That's not a lack of respect for Liverpool supporters or the football club. It's respect for the Everton supporters. You just can't do that. It goes against everything that I stand for. No chance.Timothy F. Cahill Liverpool's Sayings By Timothy F. Cahill: No money in this world could convince me to play for Liverpool. That's not a

Not part of any London combination and you have to go a long way from London really to ... to throw that feeling off. So, it's right and fitting that the Beatles came from Liverpool. If they hadn't, I wouldn't have got involved. It wouldn't have interested me. And they wouldn't have hired me.Derek Taylor Liverpool's Sayings By Derek Taylor: Not part of any London combination and you have to go a long way from

The atmosphere generated by the fans in Celtic's stadium for our visit was the most impressive I've ever witnessed. The grounds of Liverpool and Manchester United are good and the hostile feeling of playing against Real Madrid in the Bernabeu is also excellent, but the atmosphere against Celtic was the best.Xavi Liverpool's Sayings By Xavi: The atmosphere generated by the fans in Celtic's stadium for our visit was the most
George: 'Ringo would always say grammmatically incorrect phrases and we'd all laugh. I remember when we were driving back to Liverpool from Luton up the M1 motorway in Ringo's Zephyr, and the car's bonnet hadn't been latched properly. The wind got under it and blew it up in front of the windscreen. We were all shouting, 'Aaaargh!' and Ringo calmly said, 'Don't worry, I'll soon have you back in your safely-beds.George Harrison Liverpool's Sayings By George Harrison: George: 'Ringo would always say grammmatically incorrect phrases and we'd all laugh.

I am from a city (Glasgow) that is not unlike Liverpool. I am joining the people's football club. The majority of people you meet on the street are Everton fans.

I remember when I first came to Liverpool, Pepe Reina helped with everything, and he made it easy for me. When I was Atletico Madrid captain, I tried to help everyone. These are the basics in football: you need to create an atmosphere and try to create a group of friends. It's not easy, and it doesn't always happen, but you have to try.Fernando Torres Liverpool's Sayings By Fernando Torres: I remember when I first came to Liverpool, Pepe Reina helped with everything, and he

We are entrusted, you must know, with the revision of the English Dictionary. On the evidence of the Liverpool find of Christmas cards, in which occurred such couplets as:

Just to hope the day keeps fine
For you and your this Christmas time,

and:

I hope this stocking's in your line
When stars shine bright at Christmas-time

I hold that "Christmas-time" was often pronounced "Christmas-tine", and that this is a dialect variant of the older "Christmas-tide". Quant denies this, with a warmth that is unusual in him.'
'Quant is right.

You from?" the driver asked with a complete lack of interest. "Liverpool." "Limey, huh? Well, you'll be all right. It's the goddamn New York Jews cause all the trouble." I found myself with a British inflection and by no means one of Liverpool. "Jews - what? How do they cause trouble?" "Why, hell, mister. We know how to take care of this. Everybody's happy and getting along fine. Why, I like niggers. And them goddamn New York Jews come in and stir the niggers up. They just stay in New York there wouldn't be no trouble. Ought to take them out.John Steinbeck Liverpool's Sayings By John Steinbeck: You from?" the driver asked with a complete lack of interest. "Liverpool." "Limey, huh? Well,
I used to hate Ian Rush when I was young, because I was a devout Evertonian in those days, and he seemed to score every time Liverpool played against us. It's strange to think he used to support Everton too when he was a kid. He was brilliant to me at Anfield always giving me good advice.Robbie Fowler Liverpool's Sayings By Robbie Fowler: I used to hate Ian Rush when I was young, because I was a devout
If you pray for things, I am proof that they can happen. I want to repay the manager's faith in bringing me back.

Why, given all the information possessed by the Admiralty about U-20; given the Admiralty's past willingness to provide escorts to inbound ships or divert them away from trouble; given that the ship carried a vital cargo of rifle ammunition and artillery shells; given that Room 40's intelligence prompted the obsessive tracking and protection of the HMS Orion; given that U-20 had sunk three vessels in the Lusitania's path; given Cunard chairman Booth's panicked Friday morning visit to the navy's Queenstown office; given that the new and safer North Channel route was available; and given that passengers and crew alike had expected to be convoyed to Liverpool by the Royal Navy - the question remains,Erik Larson Liverpool's Sayings By Erik Larson: Why, given all the information possessed by the Admiralty about U-20; given the Admiralty's past

It's different from Liverpool. Boston seems to be a friendly place.Ian Rush Liverpool's Sayings By Ian Rush: It's different from Liverpool. Boston seems to be a friendly place.
John's was not a glum, negative, insulting attack on society but a sharp-witted, entertaining, cock-a-snook approach that encouraged young people to express themselves as individuals and to reject the stifling rigidity of a lot of the older social traditions. Thanks to John, to give one example, regional dialects were no longer looked upon as a hindrance. He made no attempt to tone down his Liverpool accent (indeed, he exaggerated it) and this encouraged others to follow suit. Previously, without cut-glass Oxford English, it was impossible for anyone to make progress in the media. John changed all that, and a great deal more as well. (Desmond Morris)Yoko Ono Liverpool's Sayings By Yoko Ono: John's was not a glum, negative, insulting attack on society but a sharp-witted, entertaining, cock-a-snook
My family was going back to England to visit my mother's grandmother, who was very ill. We went up to Liverpool and I met my great-aunt, who was just a force of nature. She was an elocution teacher and a huge enthusiast for theater and the classics. I took her amateur acting class, and she was really impressed with me.Kim Cattrall Liverpool's Sayings By Kim Cattrall: My family was going back to England to visit my mother's grandmother, who was very
England really is the birthplace, the heart and soul of football. If Barcelona had Liverpool's fans, or Arsenal's, or United's, we'd have won 20 Champions Leagues, hahaha!Xavi Liverpool's Sayings By Xavi: England really is the birthplace, the heart and soul of football. If Barcelona had Liverpool's
In 1982 I bought the newly released Makina Plaubel 55mm fixed-lens camera. With this shift from 35mm to 6 x 7, I also changed from black and white to color. Later that year, I started my project on New Brighton called The Last Resort. However, the first project I shot in colour was composed of urban scenes from Liverpool. This image was on the second roll of film. It's the first good photo I made in this new chapter of my work.Martin Parr Liverpool's Sayings By Martin Parr: In 1982 I bought the newly released Makina Plaubel 55mm fixed-lens camera. With this shift
My greatest challenge is not what's happening at the moment, my greatest challenge was knocking Liverpool right off their f*****g perch.

Well the Kop's exclusive. The Spion Kop at Liverpool is an institution.

I have no problem living in Liverpool, but I think my wife and daughters deserve to enjoy every day to the full and live their lives - but they have to be at home all day.

She sank back in her chair, quite exhausted by the sudden effort she had made; but if they even offered to speak, she cut them short (whatever the subject might be), with the repetition of the same words, "I shall go to Liverpool." No more could be said, the doctor's opinion hadElizabeth Gaskell Liverpool's Sayings By Elizabeth Gaskell: if he dies, why, perhaps, God of His mercy will take me too. The grave

If you go up to Newcastle, you can tell that the town's really had money, or Liverpool, you know, the northern towns have got grandeur, whereas Medway, being just a sort of garrison town and dockyard town, you don't have anything like Earl Grey Square or anything like that.Billy Childish Liverpool's Sayings By Billy Childish: We had the same kind of unemployment here as they had in the worst hit
My family is from Liverpool, so I have some of those vowel sounds, I've got the slack tone of someone from Birmingham, and then I was raised in Bedford, which is just north of London. So my accent, if it's possible, makes even less sense to a Brit than to an American.John Oliver Liverpool's Sayings By John Oliver: My family is from Liverpool, so I have some of those vowel sounds, I've got
