I CAN DO THAT; I CAN DO THAT BY TOM DOWLING.
Lined up like coconuts at the fair, and separated from our friends and partners, we all, amazingly, escaped the Dortmund strikers' 70mph shots.
Dealing with the elements, though, was a different story. But at least most of us could dry off within an hour of the final whistle - unlike the disabled German fans who faced an 18 hour journey home in saturated clothing.
I do hope the Reds bring back the trophies - and the cash - this season. Maybe then they will give wheelchair fans a little more protection from the elements (and the ball) - other than the plastic bin bags that were handed around during the second half of Tuesday's stormy affair.
The chance of a place in the stands next to friends is what I'm talking about. Just the same option that's available to everybody else.
Or is that expecting too much?
