Number one in the charts at the time was Tom Jones with 'Green, Green Grass Of Home'. I've heard of him of course, and I know he was a very big deal back then, but I can't say I've heard the song. It was top of the charts for 7 weeks from the beginning of December.

 

 

The song is a cracker.  A nostalgic tear jerker - I still have my Mum's vinyl 45 of it, and play it from time to time.

I might be wrong, but aren't you one of those people that complains we never take the worthless domestic cups seriously, and now you're saying we should forget the most important competition in the world because we have a couple of injuries? Laughable.

Worthless......yeah ok.

 

Given the likelihood of international travel being so problematic and if (still if at this stage of course) our best defender is crocked for months, and the possibility of the competition maybe being curtailed again as the pandemic continues to affect Europe, i don't find prioritising the league 'laughable'.

 

The words jib it off i used however are probably too strong though...but yeah i feel like we should prioritise league if we are as depleted as looks like we could be.

Some weird reactions in this thread. With Thiado added, we've got stronger midfield cover than in our entire club history (quote me a single historic squad to prove me wrong). With Jota added, we've got stronger forward cover than in our entire club history (quote me a single historic squad to prove me wrong). Alisson + VVD injuries have come at a horribly coincidental time but we should be able to navigate them. Of the 2, Alisson is the most important to get back right now, lest Adrian keep effectively punching or kicking every other shot he has to deal with into his own net.

We bought Minamino last January.

And big Virg 2 years before that (following the recent January signings of Suarez, Sturridge, Coutinho and a few others).

 

I don't think January signings can be ruled out.

The thing about the Champions League is it should never be difficult to get out of the group stages. Even with our current injuries, the squad is, arguably, no worse than 2017/18. Let's just get 10-12 points from 6 games, then see what shape the squad is in for the knockout rounds.

Atalanta got smashed to pieces by Napoli yesterday. I fully expect to beat them 12-8 in both legs.

Think you might have forgotten about Borini, Balotelli and Lambert?

Jake Cain & Vitezslav Jaros have travelled to Amsterdam with the first team.

 

Great reward for Jake getting a call up into the first team. He and Leighton Clarkson have been excellent for the past couple of seasons down in the 18s/23s, so nice to see him rewarded for his progression.

 

Jaros 3rd choice keeper behind Adrian & Kelleher. Good to see him back playing after the lengthy elbow injury that caused him to miss just about all of last season.

Like the player but has there ever been a more injury prone CB than Mario in a LFC shirt ? It's as if his body is not suited to top level sport. 

More suited to fixing leaks, saving princesses and super kart.

Dusan Tadic. 

 

The teams could have met in the 2019 final, of course, had Ajax not succumbed to Lucas Moura’s 96th‑minute winner for Tottenham in the semi-final second leg in Amsterdam. “It would have been nice to play against them in the final,” their captain, the former Southampton forward Dusan Tadic, reflected. “We would have had a larger chance than Tottenham that’s for sure.”

    • I’m getting battered by myself. Just put Istanbul on, the full match. Tyldsley is a proper dick.
    • Caoimhin Kelleher has expressed his delight over his starring performance as Liverpool clinched qualification to the knockout stage after a 1-0 win against Ajax at Anfield on Wednesday night.   After Alisson was ruled out of the important fixture with a hamstring injury, Jurgen Klopp put his faith in the 22 year-old Irishman who had only made four senior appearances for the Reds in domestic cup games.   And the youngster certainly did not let his boss down as he showed maturity beyond his years commanding his area and making some critical saves including one from point blank range from Klaas-Jan Huntelaar in the last few minutes of regular time.   Speaking after the game to the Official site, Kelleher spoke about when he got the news that he was going to be the man between the posts and his general emotions after the 90 minutes of action.   “I found out yesterday, I got told by management and stuff. Then in the team shape we did, I was the starting goalie. I was excited when I found out and then just tried to focus on the game from there.   “I’m just over the moon really with how the whole night went for me and for the whole team to get the win and to qualify. Just delighted."     Kelleher, who recently floated the idea of going on loan in the new year to gain first team experience, recalled the moment he made his first save and that allowed him to be able to ease his nerves.   “It gives you more confidence that you can make them (saves) and it gave me confidence from there. Thankfully I was able to make a few others.   “I think the main thing tonight was to get the win and qualify. There's so many games in this hectic schedule that we just need to do our best. We've qualified tonight, so that was the main objective"   The Republic of Ireland youth international confirmed that fellow custodian Alisson had sent him a good luck message but he was incredibly heartened by the support of Adrian who would have been naturally disappointed to miss out on the call-up.   “I didn't see Ali yesterday because I think he was gone, but I got a text before the game just to tell me good luck. Adrian was a really great support. He told me, 'I'm with you 100 per cent and supporting you no matter what.' To get that from him was really kind of him.”   The gloveman said that he was also indebted for the support of his manager and says he will always be ready for any further opportunity that comes his way.   “It was a nice moment for him to come to me and to get an embrace. He just said it's fully deserved, so it was a nice moment for me.   “(In terms of more opportunities) That's all I can do. When I get my opportunity, I just need to take it. I think I've done well tonight, so hopefully I can push on and if I get another opportunity, just take it again.”

    • I think both Macca and Carra suffer from trying too hard to sound objective by being overly harsh/critical far too often.
    • Tsimikas dealt with Traore heroically last season in the EL, so I wouldn’t be surprised if he starts this one. 
    • He was better tonight.   Still looks tentative too often with ball at his feet going forward and stops, checks and then passes it backwards too often....hopefully the ball he put in that we scored off will help his confidence and he starts to look to do more when he has it.
