Hello red Liverpool! Hello team, administration, coaches, staff, and fans from all points of the world.
My name's Valeriy Ponomarenko and I'm 37 years old. I'm from Ukraine, from Zaporizhzhia city.
I'm a Liverpool fan since 1998 year. Since times of rising of youngs Owen and Stevie.
I want to say "Thanks!" to all of you! I'm not a young boy now, you know, honestly, I'm the very-very adult man. But, I was able to keep that young boy inside me, that boy who wait for each match of his lovely team.
That team has the strongest character and has fans who keep faith in their team for the last seconds of the match.
I sent my family from Ukraine, you know... and everyday or evening I'm alone. But, not that days, when we have a match=) When I watch the game, I'm that young boy, who has been feeling great emotions with my "red friends"! Thanks for having so many of these evenings, especially now. You made the max number of possible football matches for this year, I know, it was specially for me and people like me.
If it will be possible, please share this email with the team and our special "normal one". I'm going to be with the team and 28th May. I'm ready for classical penalties... but I believe in the BIG BIG victory this Saturday.
P.S. I don't know why I write this email, I think that because I thought about it in my childhood... and "when, if not now"?
We should do what we dream of when we have this possibility because I see how people around me are losing all possibilities under explosions and war reality.
When you walk through a storm
Hold your head up high
And don't be afraid of the dark
At the end of a storm
There's a golden sky
And the sweet silver song of a lark
