 the fullbacks are even.

They are even in the sense that one team has a kid who has looked good and another fella out of position and we have a couple blokes who have set records the last two years. That kind of even.

How many of their players get into our 11? Maybe 4, tops 5. And 1 of those we'll hopefully be poaching. We should be better all over the pitch other than centre forward & possibly midfield, but that is debatable. They didn't make us break a sweat last season.

It's actually an interesting question, but I reckon you're underestimating Bayern here.

 

Liverpool certs: Alisson, van Dijk, Salah, Mane

Bayern certs: Alaba, Thiago, Lewandowski

 

I think you could argue about the rest. I'd have it:

 

Alisson

 

TAA  Alaba  van Dijk  Davies

 

Fabinho  Thiago

 

Salah  Muller  Mane

 

Lewandowski

 

but I'm sure a Bayern fan would find a way to get Kimmich in there, either for TAA or Fabinho.

 

It's very close, is my point. It's a shame we got unlucky against Atletico. I would have loved to see a final between Liverpool and Bayern this season.

While I would like that to be true...Lyon were 7th in Ligue 1. 7th. In the French league.

City will hammer Lyon like they do at home in the PL. This Lyon side is poor, bad they are not very good at the back. 


Remember the Alam...  ....sorry, remember Norwich.

Alaba has been a career full-back, though. I don't buy that at age 28 he has suddenly turned into a world class centre back- if Bayern do have a weakness its certainly at the back, where we look far stronger. Would take Gomez all day long. The rest I think I agree with - Muller however is very debatable. He has been pretty average for going on 4 seasons now; even this season he's averaging half the number of goals as his mid-00s peak. Him taking that position is probably more a reflection of our lack of world class options in that area - to be honest, I'd probably prefer Firmino there to him but obviously Muller has had a trophy laden career.

Davies

 

The guy has played what 30 games at the top level. Way too much of a stretch.

 

He doesn't get in ahead of a fella who has chalked up 25 assists in the last two years and captains his country.

Comparing Davies to Robertson is unfair. Robertson has two and a half seasons of consistent, high level play that Davies hasn't had time to match. Talent-wise though, I'd take Davies over any left back right now. I'm also biased, but he's just so good. He just runs through entire teams.

They cant be serious, can they?! It's like Ian Dowie when he used to get manager jobs in England. Only Dowie was a shit footballer as well as an ugly fucker.

Barca have become a joke. The problem starts with the idiots right at the top making the decisions. Rubbish managerial appointments, shocking transfer policy. They are in a whole heap of shite and nothing less than a total change at the top will stop the decline.

    • Liverpool got their European campaign off to a winning start with a professional 1-0 victory over Ajax at the Johan Cruyff arena on Wednesday evening.

      It has been a very difficult last few days for anyone closely associated with the club in the aftermath of losing defensive lynchpin Virgil Van Dijk for the season due to a incredibly reckless challenge by Jordan Pickford in the Merseyside Derby.

      The anger of Jurgen Klopp and Gini Wijnaldum was still clearly evident in the lead-up to this fixture, but as soon as they took to the pitch, the number one focus was claiming the three points.

      The winning goal came with a stroke of good fortune with Sadio Mane’s cross deflected by Argentine defender Nicolas Tagliafico into his own net ten minutes from the half time break.

      Speaking after the match per the Official site, the manager was honest in his assessment of the footballing quality on display, but thrilled with the end result.

      “This situation is pretty much the picture of the game, so it was not the most easy-on-the-eye performance from both teams, I would say. Both teams can play better football. 

      “But especially in this competition when you play away, a lot of difficulties, pretty much the medical department made the line-up and then you have to win the game – and that's what the boys did. I think that was deserved, even when we had to clear one ball from the line and when they hit the post. 

      “Of course they had their moments but apart from that, we were pretty dominant on a difficult pitch for both teams. I think everybody knows that Ajax is usually a brilliant football team but tonight it was really tricky, the passing was difficult, so you could see that. But we won the game and I'm completely fine."

      As well as the loss of Van Dijk, the Reds were dealt a further blow with Joel Matip ruled out meaning that the manager had to turn to Fabinho who once again filled in ably in the heart of the defence.

      The manager was delighted with performance of the versatile Brazilian who produced a brilliant goal line clearance to deny former Southampton star Dusan Tadic.  

      “Look, in our situation it helps. Of course, was there pressure on the situation? Yes, it’s clear for the two in the back there, 100 per cent. First game together. Fabinho can play the position, he likes playing it actually.

      “If I would have asked him to play right-back I don’t think he would enjoy it as much as he’s enjoying the centre-half position. In our situation in the moment we have to keep those boys fit and then they can of course help us a lot. I’m not surprised he [Fabinho] plays well in the position otherwise we would have thought about a different solution, even when that would have been properly tricky. 

      “I’m really pleased for tonight, pleased for him, yes it gave him confidence, for sure helped us. These situations [goalline clearances], Millie had last season one against Bournemouth, which was a massive one. That tonight was a massive one. And so he had not only because of this a big hand in this victory tonight.”

      Klopp had no reservations in taking off the front three just before the hour mark and felt that their replacements in Diogo Jota, Takumi Minamino and Xherdan Shaqiri all had a impact.

      “All three who came on are, first, in a really good shape, fresh in a tricky, difficult game on a difficult pitch. 

      “That helps a lot and you saw they helped a lot. Shaq won deflections, which is pretty special.Taki in both directions, incredible between the lines. And Diogo is a machine so he can punish opponents in one-on-one situations. We had these moments, we didn’t finish them off, unfortunately.”

      “But it’s completely fine, it was important for them. Now we started the group, now we have to concentrate on the league again and then Midtjylland is waiting after that.”

    • They've not had a win since the league began and we normally oblige poor fucking teams by giving them a helping hand. They've only scored 2 and conceded 7 and have only 1 point! Let's just hope we just run it by the numbers and have a routine win to nil 
    • Yeah even seeing him rush out as that cross came in at the end was enough to feed my bog for two lifetimes
