I CAN only imagine how it would have been if there was a full house at Anfield last night.

The flags, the songs, the atmosphere, the party and then the presentation in front of the Kop.

I was emotional enough as it was, but if the Kop was rocking and the ground full, I would have been in tears the moment King Kenny presented the Premier League trophy to Jordan Henderson.

I watched the game with my girls Jesse and Alix and we had no interest in the result. I know we have gone off the boil at this stage of the season, but that was understandable.

These recent performances will have no bearing on next season. Forget them and just enjoy the season and what a season it’s been.

We have been the best team all year and to win the title with seven games to go was incredible and a fitting result for the past two years where to be fair, Liverpool and Klopp have been magnificent.

All we wanted to see was the presentation at the end of the game and while I have to admit 30 years was too long to wait for a 19th league title, the feeling is incredible.

We are back on our perch and my hope now is that Klopp strengthens the side even more in the coming weeks.

We need another three or four players as I expect several to leave the club in the coming days and weeks.

It was fantastic to see Caoimhín Kelleher amongst the celebrations. What a year it has been for the young Cork goalkeeper. He will never forget the past 12 months.

Neither will I.

Congratulations Liverpool. Enjoy the next few days and then it’s back to the business of preparing to defend our title and retain it again next year.
