liverpool are through!

Yess!!! Liverpool are through to Champions' League semifinal for the clash against Chelsea!

It must be the worst 90 minutes of football match I have endured, but in the end it was worth every single second of it. Liverpool didn't play that good, but they managed to cope with the pressure and forced a stalemate. Juventus' play was brilliant and were probably a bit frusfrated in the end as their players kept making unnecessary fouls. The Kop fans behaved very well, the Juventus' supporters were fantastic and ... ah well, everything seems great to me right now, huh?

It's really nice to see Liverpool securing a place in the last 4 even without Gerrard. Igor Biscan was celebrating furiously at the end of the game like some WWE wrestler, great to see him taking over Gerrard's role decently. Xabi Alonso looked completely drained seeing out the entire match, while Hyypia and Carragher were rock solid at the back. Luis Garcia was everywhere, Baros spurned a couple of chances but I guess fans can forgive him for once. And the best news of all, Cisse came on as a substitute and played the last 15 minutes without showing any signs of his injury. This is a day for celebration.

I definitely didn't regret staying up to watch this nil-nil game.
