I'm in.

 

I love it.

I think, tonight, it's because we probably need urgency and push in midfield, rather than languid Continental finery.  Hence Milner.  But it's not a move in endorsement of Thiago, that's for sure.

I think Jota poses more treat when coming off the bench. This might not be true, just my impression. 

Maybe similar thinking with Thiago, overrun their midfield early on and then bring Thiago once we need to control the last 20 mins, or need someone to play a killer pass.

I agree, I honestly think Jota is a “super sub”.

Hopefully we'll win tonight and get through but I'm not even that arsed, it doesn't even feel like a big european night without the fans.

Lol at signing Thiago instead of a centre back and then not playing him in the Champions League quarter finals. We've been very competent for the last couple of years but this is what shit show, not competent clubs do. Ridiculous.

 Hoping this is the plan.  Just depends on staying in the contest until the 60th minute.

 

But again they will drop balls in behind the full backs. The plan perhaps being to 'get to' the likes of Kroos before he can get his head up. Which, I presume, was the plan last time. Which failed. 

There needs to be intensity tonight.  There won't.

Agree mate. It feels like the Clubs collective brains have emigrated this season.

The problem with that strategy is that Kroos plays very deep in possession and always has options. The other problem is that Modric is nearly as good on the ball as Kroos anyway.

I'm not even going to pretend I understand the thinking behind playing Mane and Milner. Luckily Klopp knows a lot fucking more than I do.

He's going for the physical workhorse midfield. The problem is that we signed a class player on huge wages and are leaving him on the bench.

I mean maybe Thiago has a knock or something but I think you're probably right.

 

No clue on Mane. Has been total shit for a while now.

Feel the same. 

Even if we get through tonight I don't see us getting past Chelsea the way we are playing and getting twatted by City in the final is a god awful thought. Just don't think we have the form or ability to keep the clean sheets needed

    • It’s not been suggested anywhere, it’s not been suggested that we’ve offered anything. It doesn’t take a genius to look around players of a similar elite level and see what they apparently make to know that if Salah’s agent is worth shit he’ll be looking for something similar for Salah’s last chance at massive money. It also doesn’t take a genius to see that whenever players have been at that level at Liverpool they’ve been sold. Mcmanaman, Owen, Torres, Suarez, Coutinho. 
    • You mean they’ve finally finished it? 
      I’d assume they can move it back another season?   Lets face it, given the current situation and rules on travel, it would be absolutely crazy to make supporters go there.   They should keep moving the CL away from Istanbul until we get there again!   Apparently they can’t play it at Wembley because the play off finals are that weekend, but surely they could just move those to Spurs, Arsenal or West Ham?   If Arsenal qualify tonight, the EL should be held in the UK as well.
    • Salah will be expecting in the neighborhood of 350k a week this time around. He would get that at Barca, Real, PSG, hell even a club like Juve. My guess is we keep him for two years and he leaves on a free.
    • Where has it been suggested we’re not offering Salah enough money?   Given Mo’s age, that he already gets, allegedly, £200k per week and his powers are likely to decrease during the length his next contract, what should we be looking at?   If (and I’m not saying we will) we were to move Salah on for whatever reason, it certainly leaves space to make lucrative offers to other players.
    • Yeah that was heavy that night. They were kicking off about bottles being thrown at a few bus windows yet they took a firm to Millwall and rampaged through an estate 2 seasons ago. Mention that to them, they change the subject quicker than a tory.
