Slit my veins, I bleed Liverpool red!
The second journey to the Bootroom was an intense one. I felt stiff and nervous, would I pull this off? Would I become Liverpool manager...and bring back the glory days? Or will I just be another Roy hodson? If I got this contract,Liverpool football club would be my responsibility, if I failed it would be my fault! But there ain't a chance in hell I'm gunna fail, I will succeed and lead Liverpool to everlasting glory!
I took the first step into the café, there they were! Like John said they would be. Henry had a a bit of a serious look about him, he looked very determined
To find his new manager, I only hoped that was me...
Henry: "John, good afternoon. I assume Aldo has told you why you're here?"
John: "Yes, sir. You wanted to talk about Liverpool's managerial vacancy?"
Henry: "Indeed. I want you! I want you as new Liverpool manager!"
Henry: what do you mean why? Usually people would jump up and shout yes? What's the problem?"
John: "Nothing? I want to know why!"
Henry: "*sighs* John, I want you here because you're a Liverpool legend. You can get these boys going! They look up to legends like you!
Gerrard: "Alright lads, sorry I'm late!"
Henry: " Ah, Steven! He'll tell you John!"
