Bayern Munich 1 Liverpool 3 (Mar 13 2019)

So that 0-0 in the first leg didn’t do us any harm after all eh? Bayern got the result they wanted at Anfield but it did them no good because they needed to beat us, and that’s much easier said than done these days.

 

Granted, we’d lost all three of our Champions League away games this season, but there’s a world of difference between the groups and the knockouts. Those three losses were in games where the stakes weren’t as high. We could lose them and still progress, and we did.

 

In high stakes games this season we’ve been beaten once. By Manchester City. In a game that was settled by the tiniest of details and which could have gone in our favour had the referee done his job and sent off Vincent Kompany. So the point is, beating this Liverpool side is extremely difficult, even if you’re the mighty Bayern Munich.

 

And where’s this bullshit “Bayern are over the hill and in need of a rebuild” narrative come from? The commentators kept going on about how they’re “not the Bayern of old”. Really? Coz last time I checked they were top of the Bundesliga and they reached the semis of this competition last season, where they were screwed by Real Madrid after completely outplaying them.

 

Who are these over the hill players of theirs? Sure, Robben and Ribery are at the end, but who else? It’s lazy, nonsensical bollocks. Most of that team are in their prime, and they’ve got some boss young players like Sule, Kimich and Coman. They had a slow start to the season while the new coach found his feet but they’ve been flying of late. 

 

Bayern are still Bayern, but we’re just better than them and whatsmore, they knew it. That’s why they played the way they did, because they were frozen with fear about what would happen if they opened up and tried to attack us. 

 

They kept the tie in the balance right up until Virgil headed us in front and they knew they needed to score twice. After that they had to come out, and you could see they had no belief that they could hurt us. The space opened up and we were playing through them at will. That second half was close to being the perfect away performance.

Loved the bit late on where TAA pretended he thought we had a corner when he knew it was a throw-in & managed to waste about a minute arguing with everybody in sight about it & had the crowd spewing.

As I said last night, Bayern / our opponents are always ageing / otherwise shite, while United achieve miracles by scraping past similar sides (with dubious reffing decisions)...

Brilliant report loved the line about the back four babysitting Lewandowski 

Same here mate. One of the best centre forwards in the world and we barely gave him a sniff for 180 minutes. 

 

Van Dijk simply has to be captain next season.

I'll be surprised if he's not pal

I like Henderson I admire his attitude and professionalism but it's hard to picture him lifting trophies as captain, whereas with Van Dijk it's easy picture it it's like he's born to do it. Klopp needs to make him captain.

Germans are sound aren't they? Great place to go, they love their footy and do it right (atmosphere, ticket prices etc) and in my experience they're a friendly and warm bunch with a good sense of humour.

Was surprised just how quiet we kept Thiago all game.

Seem to remember something on commentary about the fans there not liking him?

They’re cracking aren’t they. 

 

The Allianz is a great place to watch football; beers brought to your seat, can grab a ticket outside last minute for prices we’ve not seen in about twenty years, great atmosphere but good-humoured with it.

Reading the name Thiago there I just remembered that Dark Crystal-looking little cunt who played for Chelsea, for the first time in about 15 years.

Was involved in probably the worst decision I have ever seen in the PL era, when he punched the ball off Sami's head from a corner , right in front of Mike Riley. Riley put the whistle to his lips and then deliberately didn't blow. Thought Carra was actually going to thump him. Wonder what happened to that Mike Riley guy ?

Actually Klopp did not play down the achievement in front of the German cameras. When asked what this result meant he just said "Everything." He went on to point out how this was the next step for his team to take after last season. He was beaming throughout the interview never hiding his pride.

General Manager of the Referees and Match Officials thingymabob. Been doing that for the last decade since he hung up his whistle. No doubt hand picked by Slur.
