"Some people believe football is a matter of life and death, I am very disappointed with that attitude. I can assure you it is much, much more important than that." - Bill Shankly

Famous quote by the legendary Liverpool manager, the late Bill Shankly. Liverpool have a rich tradition of top quality football. When I was a teenager, they were winning the league championship every year. Those were the good old days. But they haven't done that for more than a decade. Even though they won the Treble in 2000 - FA Cup, Worthington Cup and UEFA Cup, it is the Premiership title that matters.

That's not going to happen this season though. Liverpool is only fighting for a UEFA Champion's League spot. This and next weekend is crucial. They are facing Manchester City today. And on the final game of the season, they will face Chelsea to determine who gets the final spot for the Champion's League. Two wins are needed. It's in their hands. Can they do it? It will be a great test of the Liverpool's team character.
