Walking through the doors of Castle Court out into the sunshine of Royal Avenue there's a man, probably in his 20s, sitting at the bus stop wearing a bright red Liverpool shirt. A bus pulls up. His waiting is over.

And while he had probably only been sitting for a few minutes it felt symbolic of the day.

Liverpool fans, many not born the last time their football club lifted the English league title 30 years ago, have spent a lifetime waiting for a day like today.
