Also don't forget they had the luxury of resting some players on the weekend, something you get away with in a one-horse race.

As much as that might happen and probably did happen, that's out of our control, so it's irrelevant.

I think gung go Liverpool could do napoli but this season's Liverpool it's a knife edge. I don't like the midfield of Henderson Milner and gini. We need to be more dynamic. We really need to start seeing more of our new signings. 

 

I'm not too down on the result though. Just hope these European away defeats will be lessons we learn from.

Pretty much this.

 

Anyone who thinks we're not capable of blowing Napoli out of the water with a 5-0 is kidding themselves, but so is anyone who thinks we're not capable of blowing the game 0-1. At this point it's a bit hard to guess which Liverpool is going to show up.

Well we haven't had a performance that would beat someone like Napoli 5-0 so it's not exactly 50/50.

 

The side of last year, yeah. This, no.

 

They'll score, and if we play anything like we have done recently we aren't getting three. 

 

Klopp has to be bold with the midfield. Would love to see Keita and Shaqiri start.

We haven't lost at home in the CL this year and Red Star haven't been beaten at home either. So that's something I guess.

But if you start a CL game with that midfield trio you deserve everything you get.

Late 2nd half: Silva "hurts" his head when falling to ground. He's outside the sideline so the ref correctly lets play go on. Seeing that, Silva walks on to the pitch again and lay down there instead. Play stops so that he can receive medic care, after all it's a "head injury" we’re talking about. Ref accepts these actions and 2 mins run off the clock. Our players “sportingly” returns the ball to PSG when play eventually starts again.

 

How the f*** can this happen?

It’s not ideal, but I can’t help but think that this sort of stuff is a bit of a red herring. We lost the game because we failed to create any meaningful chance... Mane and Milner did their job but the rest of them really didn’t, on the attacking front.

If we were winning, then this wouldn't have happened in the first place. Klopp was out and criticise this also, which I wasn't liking too much. Lead and then win against them, then this won't happen and won't be an issue. We need to concentrate on getting better and put ourselves in positions that will help us win games. Picking that midfield and changing the back 4, to me, is on Klopp and why we lost. The rest is just noise surrounding that.

Napoli already qualified pretty much right?

No, they're out if we do what we need to and PSG win in Belgrade

Its been a shocking campaign, we look really clueless away from home.

 

That fucking midfield - i'd be very interested to read any kind of reasoned defence of it, because to me it is killing us.

I'm not trying to find an excuse. My question is: How can the football world accept this? How can it be acceptable that a player who's outside the playing pitch goes back onto the pitch to take time off the clock, and no reaction? No yellow card, no media outrage, nothing!

It’s just different football culture. I remember several articles from when Suarez was here, explaining how football pundits and fans in South America found the general reaction from English public and media bemusing...

 

Diving and ‘snide’ over there are just part and parcel of football.. as they value winning at all cost first and foremost.

The referee was laughably bad, but I agree that we were pretty poor too, same as in the other two away games.

 

I thought Verratti was the best player on the pitch by a distance, though playing with complete immunity from any sanction regardless of what he did might have skewed things a bit.

 

Milner was typically heroic and Mane was our only real attacking option. Jurgen's hyping up of Salah before the game seems to have been more for PSG's benefit. He's still well off his level from last season.

and when we played on, we got behind them and all Robbo needed to do was beat the first man with the ball across and we were all lined up to score a tap in. That was our chance second half.

Nothing to do with culture if the referee applies the letter of the law and does his job. Should not be influenced by the crowd or the huge bung he probably got.

We were poor, the ref was fucking awful.

There's no way we're beating Napoli by 2 goals. 

Klopp can fuck off tonight. That was all on him and not for the first time in the CL this season has he got out wrong. Poison.

 

I'm off to bump the Buvac thread to stir some shit.

Been an abysmal campaign and one that sadly it looks like is over.

 

Probably for best anyway, sadly - we haven't got the squad depth to put a fight in what is gonna be a very tough top 4 fight let alone try and stay with the oil cheats and go deep in this.

 

Very very disappointing.

Fucking hell, didn't realise Napoli had turned into Brazil 1970 overnight!
