    Thiago Alcantara

    I hear what your saying, but Modric is absolutely vital for them. He makes them tick, receives the ball in tight spaces and never loses it. We have never got close to him in the 3 games we've played them in the last few years. I doubt we can stop him doing his thing in midfield, we couldn't manage it with Henderson and Gini in their peak. So i feel like when we have the ball we are going to need to fight fire with fire. Without Thiago, i can't see Henderson, Fabinho and Kieta (or Milner) being progressive enough and good enough under pressure from Kroos and Casemiro. If we can gain any advantage in midfield, with the ball, we have the forwards to destroy them. Without Thiago that's going to be really tough. EDIT: Just seen these message below. Get the fuck in! Huge news

    Thiago Alcantara

    I feel like he's vital for this game. It's Thiago vs Modric. Our play maker against theirs, we really need him. I think Klopp takes the risk because we have 5 subs. If it was a 3 sub match i doubt he'd even consider it.

    Ha no worries mate, took me until I was about 22 years old and playing Sunday league until I realised you can't be offside from a goal kick. Strange rule that lots of people don't know about. We just need to get that info to Konate now

    Summer 2022 Transfer Thread

    Yeah, so did Robertson. But Kieta doesn't do enough. He a good game in the cup final but today I hardly remember him touching the ball. He just can't get close enough to players to make a tackle either, because he's slow and physically weak. Our midfield had huge gaps today, and he's part of that midfield. I read somewhere we didn't beat another top 4 team this season, that isn't because of our attack or defence. We need to upgrade/replace a few of them and Kieta has had plenty of chances now. We can win another title or two under Klopp if we sign two high quality, mobile midfielders. That will make the difference in those big games because all the other pieces are in place.

    Thiago Alcantara

    I think either of those players is to replace Henderson/Wijnaldums legs that we missed this season. Could also add Kieta into that too, we just can't cover the ground in midfield to press anymore. I reckon we are going to use a mix of Elliot and Carvalho to cover the technical ability we lose when Thiago is out. Either that or we are buying two midfielders this summer (I hope)

    Wolves (H) - Sun 22nd May 2022 (4:00pm)

    There's that game but the biggest one for me was when they beat Arsenal away. They got absolutely battered, some dodgy decisions and fluked a win at the end. Cunts. I was really angry for the last few hours, I've calmed down a little now. The injury time Oliver played in the city game today was a joke. Wtf was that all about?! People say teams capitulate against city, but to be honest, their slow build up play allows them to ring fence an opponent's penalty area. It boxes teams in, sustaining attacks and pressure. It's fucking boring to watch like and I'd take our style any day of the week. I never allowed myself to dream today, even when it was 2-0 to Villa, but only because we were so poor today. We could and should have lost that game. It was absolute chaos and I can't remember us playing that bad, ever. It's a little worrying that under pressure we produced that kind of display. Especially with the champions league final coming up. We weren't running on fumes, many were well rested. It was because it turned into a basketball match in the first half. We gassed out, because we lost our heads and had players all over the gaff and out of position sprinting back constantly. Jota and Robertson were both really bad today. But, we still won. Amazing. This fucking team has some balls. To play that badly and have that much pressure on them to score and still win was fucking incredible. Losing Thiago is a huge blow for the final. But, what we lack in quality we make up ten fold with balls and character and it should still see us lift number 7. Apologies for the long post, I'm gutted but still proud of our team and manager. One more huge game to go, let's take all our disappointment out on Madrid and get that revenge.

    Welcome to Liverpool Luis Diaz

    Always smiling, this guy just loves football doesn't he? He's going to be a superstar

    Summer 2022 Transfer Thread

    I think this kid should be our first priority this summer. He looks really good. He's strong for a 19 year old, quick, good defensively, has a left foot, can shoot and dribble. Also he has experience of playing English/British style football, so he won't need to adapt as much. I think he'd be brilliant for us and give us the cover we desperately need for Trent. Hope we get him

    Yeah. We were never going to win this on goal difference. We needed West Ham and Villa to get a result. One of them did their job today I think the fact they had the league in their hands with that penalty and then missing it was huge. A real blow, it's the best thing we could have hoped for. We needed them to carry something like that going into the Villa game. Big plus for us is that Steven Gerrard is the manager, he'll do everything he can to give us the help we need. He'll ask his team for the performance of a life time, for him. It's game on again!

    Naby Keita

    Disagree with some. I thought he was excellent today. Close control was on point all game and he hardly gave the ball away. I'd still get rid because he doesn't have the strength or pace to be a top midfielder but I thought he played really well so credit where it's due, well in Naby lad

    Man City - the new bitters?

    I used to like Pep and loved watching that Barca team, but this was a bizarre rant. He clearly cares what other people think of him and Man City. To come out with that quote a week after Madrid knocked them out shows how much his ego has taken a hit. It ate him up inside, and he couldn't wait to say it. The pressure is on him to win the champions league and he's feeling it. His comments about about everyone loving Liverpool was just fucking stupid. We really get to him and Klopp getting to 3 champions league finals in 5 years pisses him off. I think deep down he'd love a bitter rivalry, it might help his team get over the final hurdle in the UCL. I'm just glad we have a manager who laughs off his comments and treats him like the little man he really is. Obviously I hope we beat Madrid anyway but even more so because he'll have to sit there all season reading about how great Klopp and Liverpool are in Europe. It'll drive him mad.
