Porto (A) Champions League 17/4/2019

Recommended Posts

Do what we've done well all season, none of what we haven't, do whatever it takes to win etc etc...

 

Don't do anything silly or take unnecessary risks, but don't just sit back and park the bus because for the majority of our remaining games, we'll be expected to play on the front foot. Momentum is everything.

Do you do motivational speaking?

Possibly time to rest one or two.   We're not really going to get another chance this season. 

Fuck. That

Why?  We're 2-0 up against a wank Porto game and can't afford to drop a single point in the league run in. 

 

This is our last chance too.   It's not like we've been steamrolling teams with ease in the league or have a great squad to call upon when things aren't going right. 

 

Best chance to win the league since we last won it, that's what really matters.

Get the game won, then consider whether you want to take some people off for the last 20 or 30 minutes.  You don't rest players halfway through a European Quarter Final.

 

Just win, Reds.

The best chance we've ever had since we last won it was 5 years ago. In our hands with 3 games left. Is it not?

In our hands without a defence and a joke of a manager.    This team would have cruised that league. 

 

It's really unfortunate who we've come up against this year really.

It's really unfortunate who's come up against us this year too.


Two points clear - might lose it by a point - and on the verge of the CL semi finals.

 

I'd say City themselves have found us a right fucking pain in the arse, even with all the oil they've lubed it with.

One game at a time. 

 

We still need to earn the right to play Barca.

    • Jurgen Klopp has given hope to the likes of Xherdan Shaqiri and Adam Lallana as the club braces itself for a heavy schedule of games in the next month.

      With the return of the Champions League as well as the League Cup, squad rotation will be required so that players stay fresh.

      Speaking ahead of the fixture against Arsenal on Saturday evening, Klopp said those on the periphery will get their chance.

      Liverpool Echo reported Klopp as saying:

      “Every year is the same and always in the same moment at the beginning of the season.

      “You want to have that, and if you don't have it then you have injuries from pre-season and that's the last thing you want.

      “ Still, I would say in this moment, Shaq didn't play enough, he is in a really good shape. 

      “Adam didn't play enough, in a really good shape. Dejan didn't play enough, in a really good shape.

      “These are completely normal things. Some others might also say that they don't play enough.

      “But we have to prepare for a season. 

      “At the start of the season without intensity, you try to get rhythm, you try to get stability at the beginning. It's not a moment where you change too many things.

      “Then it will happen automatically and in the next (few) weeks you have to (change things) and everything will be fine then.  

      Klopp said he was happy to give his stars a couple of days off during the week after a busier than normal workload to start the season which has included the Community Shield and the Super Cup.

      “ I was really happy for the boys to give them the two days off. 

      “We didn't plan it, but it's easier when you win so we didn't tell them beforehand.

      “Somebody needs to remind me that it wouldn't be a bad idea to have a day off!

      “I had Sunday off, Monday I was working. Sunday I watched football, the Chelsea v Leicester game. That was nice.”

      Klopp is not putting too much emphasis on a clash against a top six opponent as he rightly says that every game is important if you want to have ultimate success come the end of the season.

      “I had a couple of years ago a really good record in the mini-league then didn't pick up enough points in the other games.

      “Then last year the record was not bad but was obviously for people not good enough because we drew a lot.

      “ We have to get as many points as possible and we cannot decide where we get them. 

      “We're Liverpool and every week we have to try to win, and that's what we will do.

      “I don't think this result on Saturday will be the decisive result of the season.”

    • Considering they were playing in Warsaw I'd assumed it was something more broadly anti-Catholic.  Pathetic really.
    • I think it's pretty clear they've issued that because as long as we're still actually under contract with New Balance it would be in extremely poor taste to issue a statement saying we're planning to switch a year from now.   Sort of colours the relationship with New Balance, and we still have a whole year to go (minimum) in that relationship. I expect it's sorted behind closed doors, but won't be made public until some respectable time, probably in the spring some time when the NB deal is about to expire.
    • Also, I don't know if there are many finer allegories for the human condition than Seamus Coleman's seemingly eternal struggle to keep his tongue in his mouth.  Despite the constant effort he's always destined to fail, poor lad.
