Cole: Glory My Reason To Be At Anfield

Joe Cole admitted the pre- match rendition of 'You'll Never Walk Alone' from Gerry Marsden inspired the team to a much-needed three points as Liverpool overcame Blackburn Rovers 2-1 on Sunday.
With the team on the field preparing to start the game, Marsden led the Kop in singing the famous anthem and the England star claimed afterwards that it provided a huge lift. Cole told Liverpoolfc.tv: "That was brilliant because it lifted everyone and if we'd have scored in the first five minutes you would have had to give Gerry the assist! "The supporters are brilliant and I can't wait to experience the atmosphere on a big European night in the future. "The atmosphere was brilliant and that's why I signed for this club. "It feels like a weight off our shoulders and the whole place has been lifted by this victory. "I thought we played well. We should have won by more than the 2-1 margin. Paul Robinson pulled off some great saves but I'm sure someone is going to get a spanking soon when those chances start going in."
Cole provided the assist for Fernando Torres to net the winner and he has backed Liverpool's No.9 to push on and get back to his best. "It was great for Fernando to get back scoring again," he added. "We have been working on that all week, getting the ball into the box better from the wide areas and it was nice to give Fernando a chance. "He is the focal point of our team so if he's playing well we know we'll be winning games. "This was an important three points and it's a great confidence boost for us. We've got until next Sunday now to prepare for our next game against Bolton which will be similar to Blackburn. "It's time we turned this around and start picking up wins now and that's what we hope to do."
