" There's a english song, that we currently sing in Curva Sud, which is the Liverpool traditional anthem and it's from 60..It says:

Walk on walk on
with hope in your heart
and you'll never walk alone
you'll never walk alone

There was a guy, in our group (tells the narrator) that had a record with all these songs, and he was froma group which isn't used to use magaphones: the songs in that group starts spontaneously..In this record there was this *You'll never walk alone*, which is a very emotional anthem and we liked that so much that we tried to learn it, but due to our bad knowledge of the language we had to write it down the lyrics ; the guys at the beginning said *welcome* instead of *Walk on*, so we explained the guys what was the meaning of the words until we learnt it.
This song made us famous all over Europe because we sang it when the Liverpool supporters died in Sheffield. It happened by saturday and we had the match against Real Madrid on sunday (that we won 5-1, a truly memorable moment)


We prepared a banner "SHEFFIELD: YOU'LL NEVER WALK ALONE" and we waited for the minute of silence, and we were prepared to sing the song and put the banner our, but the referee whistled the sudden start of the match. We put out the banner believing it was over but the referee suddenly stops the players and tributes 1 minute of silence in honour of the victims. I (narrator) was there, without even a micro but i standed up on the barrier and we started with this song *You'll never walk alone* without micro. I have the video at home and all the players are there standing up and you see the whole stadium standing up, and clapping.
You can clearly see the referee staring at me because the song can be clearly be heard by the pitch and the whole Curva starts the song with great powerful voice. When i tell this i'm still proud and emotive; on english telly they shooted it for 6 months and we got bags of letters from England: "you're friends of us and you'll be forever"

c'è una canzone inglese che noi facciamo che è l'inno del Liverpool che è Walk on una canzone degli anni 60 che è stata presa dai tifosi del Liverpool come loro inno col ritornello che dice


Walk on walk on
with hope in your heart
and you'll never walk alone
you'll never walk alone

c'era uno di noi che aveva il disco con questi cori che lì da loro non c'è nessuno che li dirige col microfono partono spontaneamente parte questo Walk on che sembra un urlo che viene da lontano e così noi abbiamo cercato di impararla abbiamo dovuto fare i foglietti con su com'era scritto perché molti dicevano Welcome cioè benvenuto invece di Walk on camminiamo abbiamo spiegato che cosa voleva dire e tutto quanto finché siamo riusciti a impararla questa canzone e ci ha resi famosi in tutta Europa perché l'abbiamo fatta quando sono morti i tifosi del Liverpool schiacciati contro le transenne a Sheffield è successo al sabato e noi domenica avevamo la partita col Real Madrid di Coppa dei campioni che abbiamo vinto 5 a 1 una partita memorabile

avevamo preparato uno striscione con scritto SHEFFIELD YOU'LL NEVER WALK ALONE c'era il minuto di silenzio e noi eravamo pronti per fare la canzone e mettere fuori lo striscione invece l'arbitro uno svedese ha fatto iniziare subito la partita noi mettiamo fuori lo striscione ma la cosa sembrava finita li poi però di colpo lui ferma il gioco e si mette la palla ai piedi per il minuto di silenzio cazzo io lì in quel momento non avevo neanche il microfono sono salito sulla transenna e senza microfono come fanno loro siamo partiti con questa canzone c'ho il video a casa ogni tanto lo rivedo e mi viene la pelle d'oca tutti i giocatori sull'attenti poi si sente tutto lo stadio in piedi a applaudire si vede l'arbitro che guarda verso di me perché sente il coro si vede benissimo il coro che sale And you'll never walk alone anche adesso che lo dico mi emoziono l'hanno fatto vedere per 6 mesi su tutte le reti inglesi almeno una volta al giorno lo facevano vedere sono arrivate tante di quelle lettere di tifosi inglesi voi siete dei veri amici e per tutta la vita noi saremo sempre vostri amici

Read all the stories in that link, and esp the last CANTO, where the narrator tells about Pontecurone in 1992 with Samp supporters (ToniSamp ;) )..

It's an amazing pile of facts and reports of away matches and i've read many things that hardly i would have known otherwise..

I will translate some of them in the next weeks

No offense, but I think it's disgusting to copy any song from Liverpool, which is a club that has no right to exist after their murderous acts in Belgium. I think all Italian fans should hate this team. :yuck: I certainly do. [Along other resons like beating Roma etc but that's besides the point]. And when they sing "you'll never walk alone", I agree the words and tune are nice, but when they sing together in a sort of slow motion, they sound like retarded lager drunks for me. Fuk them. :stuckup:

Even though I said all Italian fans ought to feel like that, it is obvious not the case, not even among many Juve fans, and it's a personal view and everyone is indeed entitled to his own. Btw, having a sympathy to the disaster at Sheffield is different than being "allies" with the club which I talked about. It's two seperate things.

It's not like I will ever forget about the incident, one that happened in my birth year of all years, however its important to forgive and forget. That said, if any Liverpool or English football fan would bring the event up in an attempt to start something, they would be put in their place. What happened at Heysel is like scars that are embedded on the skin; they do not hurt all the time, but when scratched, the wound is open again. Lets hope the people at Anfield dont forget that...

I wouldn't say YNWA is traditionally an "English anthem".

While the Liverpool fans sing it passionately, the Celtic fans feel every bit as emotional about the connection the song has to our club, and judging from the old Celtic videos i have in my collection, the song has been every bit a part of Celtic's history as it has been Liverpool's.

Celtic and Liverpool have, as you probably know, very strong connections due to the Irish heritage. Both Celtic and Liverpool fans both have the right to consider this song theirs. However, I don't think it's something general. It's just that Celtic's and Liverpool's fans are great friends. I don't think you'll ever hear United, Everton, Rangers or some other great rival sing this song.

Beautiful post Gio!!!!:star::proud: :stuckup:
DA BRIVIDI!!!:stuckup::proud:

Speaking of club friendships, we also seem to have very good relationship with Celtics, Manchester United, Chelsea, Barcelona and Real Madrid. However, none of these greatly rewarding relationships match the terrific rapport we've been having with our beloved Cugini!!!:stuckup::proud:

Cheers.;)
