Reds reaching Wembley is always a beautiful achievement

On Wednesday, Liverpool booked their spot in the 2024 League Cup Final alongside Chelsea. It was another notch in the Liverpool evolution's belt. As it were, whenever the Reds can make it to Wembley, it's worth celebrating.

Obviously, the biggest reason for fans to be excited is it usually means Liverpool have reached the Final stages of a cup competition.

It further drives home the point that the "Liverpool 2.0" project is surviving and thriving under the guidance of Jurgen Klopp. They are top of the table in the Premier League and have now reached the first domestic cup final of the season.

However, there will be some section of fans that dismiss this notion and look at the League Cup as a second-rate trophy.

I see it as the club adding on to its already extensive and rich history. Silverware is hard to come by in this business, even if some clubs make it look easier than others. For a fanbase that waited 30 years for Premier League glory, we understand that better than most.

There are a countless number of clubs that have never gotten to experience the magic of Wembley, let alone a Cup Final. While this is what we expect at Anfield, it doesn't mean we can't still savor it.

These are moments where some of the best memories are made as a fan or a player. Remember the Steven Gerrard screamer in the 2006 FA Cup Final? If you don't, please check it out as soon as you can.

Those moments of magic are only amplified by the atmosphere and the occasion. I'm talking about the beautiful side of football that can't be quantified by numbers. The memories that can be made from a family going, or a father and son, or just a group of lifelong friends that want to see the Reds lift a trophy.

It doesn't matter what your story is, because they are all meaningful. Liverpool playing in a Final at Wembley is not matched by many things in the sporting world. We should not be so quick to simply become accustomed to it.

Taking a moment to soak in the opportunity is never a bad thing. Fans, players and coaches alike. I am wonderfully excited to see Liverpool battle on the biggest stage and hopefully they lift silverware when all is said and done.

We need another good story for 20 years from now.
