As Liverpool Football Club prepares for its match against Victory tomorrow night, three of the club's legends were out and about in Melbourne.
Ian Rush and Robbie Fowler were on the pitch supporting junior, grassroots football at the Strikers and Skills clinic.
While former midfielder Craig Johnston was out revving-up Victory players at Gosch's Paddock where he confessed he would like to see the Reds "get beat".
But when asked about unsettled striker Luis Suarez and captain Steven Gerrard playing in tomorrow night's match, Rush and Fowler were both non-committal.
"I think it's not just about Stevie G and Lui, it's about the younger ones because they would not have experienced playing in front of so many people," said Ian Rush.
"I think they will go back, and think 'wow' I want to do that every week', and that will give them a big incentive to want to get a regular place for Liverpool," he said.
Robbie Fowler was more hopeful about Suarez.
"I'm not really sure, I think he'll definitely be involved in the game," he said.
"The good news is that he is on this trip.
"He's a Liverpool player, he's got a few years left on his contract.
"I love nothing better than for him to go out in that stadium and knock a few goals, that would be fantastic.
"Not only for Liverpool, but also for the 90,000 fans making the effort to come to the game."
Yesterday the Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers said he expected the controversial Uruguayan to play in the full strength line-up against Victory.
Melbourne Victory was out training ahead of tomorrow night's game.
Players showed their form at Gosch's Paddock in front of another Liverpool legend Craig Johnston.
And he was not giving any secrets away when asked what sort of tips he has gave the Victory boys.
"I can't reveal that information I'm sorry," he said tongue-in-cheek.
"It's a huge game, it's going to be the biggest game of their lives, playing against Liverpool, they'll remember it for as long as they live.
"All you can say to the lads is you've got to think faster than them (Liverpool) and do things faster."
He also made this admission.
"For the first time in my life I would like to see Liverpool beat.
"Why, why, because it's not a League game, it's a pre-season friendly."
Victory Coach Ange Postecoglou was a little more serious.
"We want entertainment, we want goals," he said.
Postecolglou, a Liverpool fan himself, says meeting Craig Johnston has been a tremendous thrill for the Victory players and himself.
"Most of the young players are playing the game of their life tomorrow night," he said.
"We can go out there and play defensively and fight for our lives, but that doesn't become meaningful.
"We might create one or two magic moments for ourselves, and for individuals out there, and that's what it's all about."
He says the key for the team is to play its style of game.
"If we do that, we'll instil the belief in the players that we're on the right track, and we'll keep growing."
Liverpool is still basking in what it says is an 'incredible buzz around Melbourne' since the team's arrival.
"It's a bit surprising," said Ian Rush.
"Not being the number one sports in Australia, it's surprising, but fantastic to see."
Rush says there are so many passionate supporters in Australia, and hopes the team leaves a lasting legacy.
"Hopefully we'll come back again," he said.
"You never know what you're going to see."
"I knew the reception would have been phenomenal, and I think I've been proved right," said Fowler.
He says it is very apt for such an iconic team coming to Australia, the sporting capital in the world, and playing in one of the most iconic stadiums in Australia.
"I think the fit is great," he said.
"The 98,000 (crowd), that does surprise me, but I'm looking forward to it.
"I think the atmosphere will be superb, there'll be a bit of passion there as well, I'm really excited."
