The story of Liverpool’s run to last season’s Champions League final is well told – but less so is the tale of the man whose song soundtracked the memorable march to Kiev.
Jamie Webster’s brilliant version of Allez Allez Allez has taken the big Red and fellow matchgoer Dan Nicolson on a remarkable ride that is showing no signs of slowing down yet.
From the Ukraine, to the United States, and then to Dublin, Jamie and Dan have experienced a rollercoaster few months they will never forgot.
And now back in Liverpool ahead of the new season, they joined hosts Paul Wheelock and Paul Philbin for a special podcast.
The duo recall the magical scenes in Shevchenko Park and what it was like to be asked to accompany Liverpool on their pre-season tour of America and Ireland – including the amazing moment Jurgen Klopp walked in on Jamie while he was performing THAT song.
Allez Allez Allez has taken on a life of its own and Jamie and Dan, whose BOSS night event was where the song truly came to prominence, explain its origin and the brilliant reason why and how it ended up in the charts.
They also pay credit to the club for recognising and buying into the thriving fan culture that has been created by young Liverpool supporters in the city – and why that can only help Klopp’s side on the pitch.
It’s a great Scouse success story of collective identity that is being replicated the world over. Enjoy.
