Watching the famous 2005 Champions League semi-final victory over Chelsea on television provided Colin Pascoe with everything he needed to know about Liverpool's rivalry with the Blues.
The Kop was in historic voice on the night, eight years ago, when Luis Garcia's early goal booked passage to Istanbul - and European Cup glory - for the Reds.
Pascoe was a fascinated observer that evening and reflected with a smile on his face when asked for his memories of a match which has taken a revered place in Liverpool history.
"I watched it on television and it was probably an injustice of what the noise was all about that night at Anfield," the club's assistant manager told Liverpoolfc.com.
"I have spoken to people who went to that game many years ago and they said the atmosphere was electric and it was a great and famous goal by Luis Garcia.
"Our fans are so important. They get behind the lads, they are always encouraging the lads and the atmosphere they generate at Anfield is famous - it's superb."
Third-placed Chelsea return to Merseyside this Sunday, the latest Barclays Premier League fixture in a packed schedule for the team now managed by former Reds boss Rafa Benitez.
The Spaniard has regularly rotated his squad, with the Londoners competing for the Europa League and previously the FA Cup, but Pascoe believes that does not change Brendan Rodgers' approach.
The Welshman added: "You are always trying to work out what the opposition team might be. You look at the stats and you look at players who play quite regularly, week in, week out.
"They have a game next Thursday against Basel and then against Swansea on the Sunday so we'll try and work it out. It's always that cat and mouse game when you try to work out what their team will be.
"The main threats are the front four. They rotate between Demba Ba and Torres and then you have got Mata, Oscar and Moses as well. They have got pace and power and they are a very good unit.
"We are looking forward to the game and it will be a very tough game as Liverpool and Chelsea encounters always are. We are looking forward to a tough game and beating Chelsea.
"Over the last four seasons there haven't been many draws and the last draw was when we played in November and drew 1-1."
Stalemates have frustrated the Reds in each of their last two league fixtures, with West Ham and then Reading holding Rodgers' men to successive goalless draws.
"It's been frustrating obviously with two draws," Pascoe continued.
"Two clean sheets would have been great for the defenders and rightly so, because they defended well in the two games - but we're disappointed we didn't score.
"West Ham are a tough side to play against and hard to break down. Then we went to Reading and their goalkeeper, McCarthy, had an unbelievable day.
"I'm sure the young goalkeeper couldn't have dreamed he would save so many shots from the likes of Luis and Stevie. It was frustrating because on another day we probably could have won by four or five goals.
"But, again, we could have lost it as Pepe made a fantastic save as well."
How will the Reds avoid similar frustrations this weekend?
"We create chances and hopefully we don't come up against a goalkeeper that performs as well as the young lad did last week," the assistant boss insisted. "We are creating chances - which is the most important thing."
With just five fixtures remaining and his maiden season at Anfield drawing to a close, Pascoe reflected on his first year with the Reds and his aims for what's left of the current campaign.
"I've thoroughly enjoyed it," he said.
"We want to win all five games and hopefully if we win all five then we can get a Europa League spot. That's what we've got to aim for - to win all five games and give ourselves a chance for that fifth spot."
