U are sooooo right HGS.

Walking round the ground pre-match against Barca, you could sense that though we had not given up hope, no one was really giving us much chance of qualifying (if any). The Barca fans sensed 'knew' they were through too. And we all know what happened next.

This time though, and even though we have an away goal rather than 3-0, its gonna be very tough indeed without our fantastic home support.

Can't have that loui. Bit too convenient. Surely if he was showing signs of being unfit or ill in training he wouldn't be starting every game. Think it's more like so many others in the team; he's played so much and ran so hard in the last 3 years he's just desperate for a break to re-charge his batteries. I also think his confidence is a bit low given how he needs to take an extra touch in the box this year.

Said it on here before and got hijacked for alleged criticism.

Mane been way off it for a considerable period. Although nowhere near as bad as Firmino.

I personally think there is definitely a real problem in the front 3s relationship, it's very strained at best.

Mane feels Salah is not only greedy but over praised imo. He may be right but that's not the point,it cannot get in the way.

He also recently described Firmino as his favourite teammate,Bla bla, Firmino has had 1,2 good games in a year fgs.... Palace last one I can remember, been very very poor indeed.

Both have been utterly fantastic for Liverpool but unless theres an immediate upturn I think minimum 1 will be gone in summer.

Another 3 points would be very big indeed for CL Football.We need to pick up the pace and soon or were in no man's land next season.

Not good if looking to shake up the squad.

Villa,s timewasting was painful 2nd half, was expecting 8 mins injury time before we scored winner, then thought fk when 5 went up. But we got there in the end in a quite strange game all round. We were far from clinical
Report PorcupineorPineapple April 10, 2021 11:00 PM BST
I actually quite enjoyed it. Had to laugh at half time after battering them, conceding to their one chance and having yet another ridiculous VAR go against us. Can only really laugh at that kind of thing and it pretty much summed up our season.
Second half was good as I thought our heads would have dropped and there was no way we were getting back into it but it was much more like last season. Performances were much better. I though Trent and Bobby both played well in particular. And then to get that winner, well that was nice too.
Report loui April 11, 2021 9:39 AM BST
Glad you managed to enjoy it pop, we got there in the end. Happy for Trent with that screamer. Why don't they say the whole torso has to be offside or that tiny bit and the head or a bit of leg would be more acceptable then. How does everyone think Madrid will line up on Wednesday, I'm expecting them to defend deep, and play on the counter. Our pressings going to have to be mega good to break up their really good passing game. First goal will be crucial. And first few tackles by us need to bite.
Report pushkin99 April 11, 2021 10:27 AM BST
Just watced re-run of MoTD on BBC catch up and the VAR decisions against us and Fulham look worse and worse on each viewing.

I am sure Madrid will play on the counter, much as they did against Barca last nite loui. The tie is certainly not over, and if we can take the confidence from at last winning at home into the match anything is possible but 3-1 is a big advantage.

We can't let them getting into the passing rhythm push, got to be closer and snapping at their heels, their right wing back Luis Vasquez got injured last night, don't rhk k he'll make. Might be better for Jota.
Report PorcupineorPineapple April 11, 2021 10:53 AM BST
I think that was the plan last week though. Keita was in there to be busy and snatch the ball off them, then we had Jota in as an extra runner/finisher. As a tactic it's fine. Unfortunately Naby is just not tactically switched on and let Kroos dominate him. I'd be tempted to leave Gini out after his last couple of games. Would be nice to start Milner, so he can put a sharp tackle in and also for his leadership. The other one who would be good potentially would be Ox, but he's clearly just nowhere near the right level given he's been fit for months but isn't getting a look in.
Report loui April 11, 2021 11:18 AM BST
Milner is a good shout he had a good solid game yesterday. Fabinho was surprisingly ineffective against them, I'm hoping for a lot more from him in return leg. There was mistakes all over the pitch last week, but game was ultimately won in midfield. Maybe stopping Kroos could be pivotal on the night
Report PorcupineorPineapple April 11, 2021 12:33 PM BST
I think when we lose Milner and Henderson we're gonna lose a huge amount. Always feels a bit prehistoric to be thinking about getting English players in but I think we need to think about it. Neither VVD or Gini have impressed me as stand in captains. Maybe when Trent goes to midfield he gets the armband, but he's still young and finding his way. We need a proper organiser and someone who will make sure players are training properly when Hendo is gone.

HGS, lou is your typical United supporter, basking in the reflected glory of his club.

In years gone by, lou and his ilk flooded this thread with their gloating smirking schadenfreude, laughing uncontrollably at our lack of success.

Surprise surprise, lou and his ilk have barely been seen on the Liverpool thread for the last 4 years. Surprise surprise, since christmas 2020, lou has felt brave enough to come scuttling out from under his rock with his gloating smirking schadenfreude yet again.

I wonder what has changed? Certainly not United, who have now gone 7 (yes SEVEN) years without winning anything worth winning. Soon to be 8 (yes EIGHT years).
