Four years ago, in the spring, Liverpool fans gathered five and 10 deep on Anfield Road to greet the coach carrying their players to the ground before matches. The swell began near the King Harry pub, where the road curves to the left and up a small hill and the numbers grew and grew as the bus rolled past the junctions of Tancred Road, Coningsby Road, Sybil Road and Alroy Road.
The supporters cheered and yelled and stood on walls and shinned up lamp-posts and found whatever vantage point they could. On the coach, the players watched and wondered at the fervour they had unleashed. Smoke from flares turned the world red. Brendan Rodgers, the manager at that time, filmed some of the scenes out of his window. He still has the footage on his mobile phone.
