Why RBB Love's Football

There are many goals that fans have enjoyed but there is always one that will warm their heart during the darkest of hours. For RBB, that goal is Steven Gerrard's stunning 86th minute thunderbolt against Olympiakos, so send Liverpool through to the next stage of the Champions League, which the Reds went on to win that year.
