Can you hear the drums, Fernando?

There was something in the air that night
The stars were bright, Fernando
They were shining there for you and me
For liberty, Fernando
Though I never thought that we could lose
There’s no regret
If I had to do the same again
I would, my friend, Fernando

I'm certain I am not the only Liverpool supporter to break out the ABBA classic to celebrate the arrival of Fernando Morientes at Anfield. But originality is overrated, and I'm going to take advantage of any opportunity to quote the great Swedish songbirds. Good lord, did LFC need this.

Do you still recall the frightful night we crossed the River Mersey? I can see it in your eyes, how proud you were to fight for the Premiership title.
