Liverpool 4 Barcelona 0 (May 7 2019)

Recommended Posts

Great report, sums up my feelings (though I still hate Suarez).

 

I'd love to know what Fabinho shouted at him, there was some real anger in that.

 

Would've been very easy to be rattled by the unfair yellow, but his performance afterwards was exceptional. He was instrumental in both setting the early tone, and our game management. Great to see him doing it for a full game of high intensity too; his fitness levels have improved massively.

Dave you really captured it all in that report, great piece of writing. I'm with you on Suarez, I can't hate him, it's what he does & we loved him for it. But he's history, let's finish the job reds, 4th final under Jurgen, it's time we won.

Barca were time wasting from the start, so it was great to see them all getting massively riled up when we were doing the same with 5 minutes to go. The thing is - from the looks on their faces they seemed oblivious that they'd been doing it all along. 

 

Ha ha ha, suck on that you cheating bastards.

What a game what a night just stunning really I don't have the words to do it justice. I broke my wrist over a year ago and I was clapping so enthusiastically last night that my wrist is killing me today but fuck it was worth it. What are group of players these lads are.

A magnum opus befitting the occasion, Dave.

 

I think your "cheats always prosper" comment was in response to my posting that perhaps - after Kompany's freakish strike - something freakish might finally go against City on Sunday.

 

Here's hoping.

 

In the meantime, thanks for entrenching last night's memories forever with this report.

Super report Dave. On a slightly different note, was I alone in feeling a gnawing sense of...dunno, something, when Maura got spuds through with the last kick of the game...?

Ace report you big gayer. 

 

But I might have to pull you off, sorry, up for; "I've made my peace... especially after we managed to salvage our season with this result."  Yes, this has been a remorseless, painful, extraordinary ride, but after that Lukaku's-arse-missing-red-card-dodging fuckwit's goal on Tuesdee, I was, and still am in the 'what a fucking incredible ride it's been, whatever happens now' camp. 

 

And tell me we'll be having sex in Madrid in a few weeks' time? Just don't tell Al or Ted. Or John. Or Woo. Or Joolz.

Great report again Dave.  You really do have a talent for words.

Agree with you on Fabinho. We’ve already got the best defender in the world and arguably the best keeper. Is Fab the best holding midfielder in the world now? You know, he just might be.

Disagree on your view on taking Coutinho back home. I don’t want him back, and it’s not for any sentimental reason, He’s justy not fit to play our pressing style game. In many ways he’s yesteryears footballer. But more on that in another thread.

And yes! The ball boy is another hero. Kop should make a “we’ve got the best ball boys in the world”  song.

A couple of days on and it’s easier to analyse what went on a bit easier.  I think Barca turned up thinking either the tie was done or at the very least they didn’t have to do what they did last week to get through.

 

In the first leg they knew playing well wouldn’t win them the game.  They needed to cheat, whinge, argue with the ref over every call, try to rile our players, waste time etc.  Messi is not the saint people like to make him out to be but that was the worst I’ve ever seen him behave in a game.  They hadn’t played like that in any game I’d watched them.  It certainly was nothing like that in the United game.

 

The lead up to the game tells the story.  They were up our arse and it was patronising.  Suarez saying he wouldn’t celebrate, him and Coutinho getting a photo with the crest, they were never going to be at it 100% and when you play our lads these days if you aren’t at it 100% then you will get your arse handed to you.  Once you’ve started in that manner it’s very difficult to suddenly turn it on when you need to.

After the first leg Barry Glendening of the guardian said on the live updates, “Liverpool have had their backsides handed to them tonight”. The media thereafter continued to report an entire fabrication of what occurred during the match. A quiet Messi flukes a tap in from2 yards and deflects a stolen free kick in and it’s all forgotten. Not a peep about Barca’s antics or how well Liverpool dominated play. At the Nou Camp.

Well,  drink this up you fuckers.

Imagine what it must have been like in the changies before the game.  Klopp must have been dropping some Al Pacino Any Given Sunday style bombs from what the players have been saying.

That was the ref when Bobby scored the winner against PSG in the group stage and when we beat Dortmund in the Europa semi

He must love Anfield mustn't he? Probably the three best atmosphere's he'll have ever officiated in.  Bet he gave a little fist pump when he heard he'd drawn the 2nd leg.

Not alone. I was made up at the thought of facing Ajax as there's no way they could cope with us. When Spurs got that winner it was a bit of a sickener as they'll be a tougher opponent as our games with them are always close.

 

Spurs have had some incredible luck to get there. Lucky to get out of the group, saved by VAR right at the end against City and then scoring with literally the last kick of the semi to get out of jail.

 

Anyone who believes in that 'name on the trophy' stuff should be seriously worried about them based on how they got there.

Another flakey journo coming up with a narrative and bending facts to suit it. Even though we won, I'm still narked that the English media - and McManaman in commentary - failed to call out Barca for all those shithouse fouls in the 1st leg. I was soooo hoping that someone would take out Rakitic for that terrible foul that took out Naby - nobody in the ENGLISH media mentioned it. Just as well our boys are a lot more controlled and less emotional than me and served their dish of revenge ice cold (-ish). Looking like Rakitic and a few others are being shown the door as part of the aftermath. Good.

Two points:

A. I suppose it’s part of the game in Latin America and Spain to discuss every decision by the ref, no matter how obvious. Maybe it pays off sometimes? I don’t know. I do know there’s a price for it though. When you’re complaining, your mind isn’t alert on what’s happening around you.


B. Trent’s corner to 4-0

    • Well that’s just bollocks as Rafa had left the club before Comolli had joined. 
    • Jurgen Klopp has given little credence to those individuals who are using any possible reason to downplay the achievements of Liverpool this season.

      The Reds are just four wins away from their first league triumph in three decades, and are on the verge of wrapping up the title in the quickest period of time in the modern era, currently holding a 22 point lead over Man City.

      But as recent games against relegation threatened sides such as Norwich and West Ham have shown, there is certainly no such thing as a easy win.

      The fact that this team has only dropped points once this campaign is remarkable, however there is a theory around that it is to do with the failings of their main rivals, not so much the overall strength of Liverpool.

      Speaking ahead of the game against Watford on Saturday evening, Klopp was having none of that.

      The Daily Mail reported the manager as saying:

      “I couldn't care less (what people say).

      “Look, it is completely normal. 

      “I don't think that we should have any concern for things like this. If other people think like that – if they think City are not as good as they were – they ARE!

      “They have scored a little less goals than us, conceded a few more, and if you look why it is clear they have been missing some players. 

      “The other teams are really strong too. 

      “Yes, Bayern beat Tottenham and Chelsea [in the Champions League] but they are really strong over a season.

      “Yes, they (Spurs and Chelsea) have had some problems, that's all true. 

      “But in the moment that you play them you don't feel that they have these problems.

      “The points they have, we have no influence on that apart from the games when we play them.

      “So it says nothing about the quality of the Premier League, especially when you look at City v Real Madrid. 

      “I know that people look at these things and you saw that one of the best teams in the world maybe in the moment and City were clearly better so that shows as well how strong the League is.  

      Despite the outstanding consistency and success of the past two seasons, Klopp is certainly not one to rest on his laurels and be content.

      “There is still a lot of work to do and a lot of space for improvement.

      “You see our games and result wise it looks okay but performance-wise there is a lot of space for improvement. 

      “That is what we work on and try constantly through the week.

      “Result consistency is maybe difficult to improve because that is close to perfection, obviously, but it is possible to improve the performances in all departments. 

      “There are so many things you can improve that that will never end.”

    • This will become a worry soon. Fucking Ludogorets players travelling to the San Siro stadium with face masks on. Its all becoming a bit hysterical; some more reported cases in the UK and all bets are off. Got to get this wrapped up in the coming weeks. Bomb out the Cup and get this wrapped up in the next 3 weeks.
