Here are my post-match musings that I've just put on Facebook.

This picture is from 13th December 2015. Fans of other clubs love to share it to have a good laugh at Liverpool.

 

But let's remember the context.

 

Jurgen Klopp had noticed a tendency at Anfield for the fans to get nervous, impatient and moany whenever things were going against the club. He spoke publicly of the need for the players, manager and fans to all pull together, especially when times got tough.

 

Shortly afterwards, the Reds surrendered a lead and found themselves 2-1 down at home against West Brom. But instead of the usual eye-rolling and "here we go again" groans, the whole ground got behind the team. The players kept going and finally got an injury-time equaliser.

 

Klopp and the players acknowledged the part that the crowd had played in helping the team to salvage a point.

 

Ever since then, fans of other teams have chosen to misrepresent that moment as a celebration of a home draw against a pretty poor team. Oh, the laffs they've all had!

 

But the truth is that that moment was a watershed. It cemented the bond between the fans, the players and the manager - each trusting the others and relying on each other to overcome adversity together.

 

And payback for that simple gesture at the end of a frankly awful game is unforgettable, magical occasions like tonight. The kind of thing that other teams can't begin to dream of.

 

Keep laughing, folks!

 

PS
Origi scored the late goal against the Baggies, too!

Wonder if this loss for Barcelona will make them try and get Pochittino or Guardiola back in the summer

I called this last night, on the premise of an early goal, but deep down i could not see Barca not scoring. This is up there with one of the greatest nights ever if not the greatest. Speechless. Heros to a man including the crowd. Madrid Here we come .

I reckon it will make them desperate to land Mane or Salah - maybe even VVD.

 

All 3 will hopefully laugh at them and say do one....and why wouldn't they say that!

What are you talking about?  Fuck this game. I love this club more than anything in the world. Absolute heroes to a man, Gini best performance I’ve ever seen from a person. Divock I’m in love. I love these reds I love this club, I love you all.

Wasn't there a clause in the Coutinho deal that basically said something like "If you want one of ours, it will cost you market rate plus 100m"?

I reckon there were only two people in the stadium who realised that it was on.  Brilliant quick-thinking and beautifully executed by both of them.

I’m not sure Div realised until after Trent had hit it, which makes the finish even better
