Liverpool beat neighbours Everton 2-1 in the FA Cup semi-final last night.
Although we have not won the cup just yet, the significance of this win over Everton is a cause to celebrate in itself. Everton is our local bitter rivals. Drubbing them on the way to another cup finals at Wembley makes it that much more sweeter.
We have been getting much flak lately. But as usual, Liverpool the team and the fans, stick together under pressure and under attack from misguided souls who do not understand the history and the very tradition of this one big family.
No doubt Liverpool's league form leaves much to be desired. But it is, after all, a work in progress. Patience is the key word here. What's important is that the foundations are set in place for us to progress further.
And two cup finals in a season surely says something about our progress.
League performance notwithstanding, I bet many teams would just love to be in our position right now. A cup double beckons.
