    You do not need to. Your every utterly pathetic negative claptrap drivel gives us all the reminder we need thanks.

    I went to the final in 84 and I really cannot think the atmosphere will be that initimdating for the team. The pitch is surrounded by a 400 metre olympic running track for gods sake so the crowd are miles from the team on the curva sud or is it nord I forget.

    Danny Ings

    That they are decent squad players does hurt some people yes. I have yet to see any realistic suggestions of who would sit on the bench in their place.

    James Milner is....

    The old curates egg for me or marmite take your pick.

    I think it is fair to say Barcelona played billy big bollocks and thought they just had to stroll around for 90 minutes. I do not think we will go there with that attitude. But as rightly pointed out Roma now have an outside chance where they previous had no chance at 5-0. The Stoke game is a massive decision for Klopp now if not before tonight. Does he rest tired players or run the risk of them running out os team in Rome. Damned if he does and damned if he does not.
  9. Hendo does not give the ball away anywhere near as much as oone or two other players I could mention do. Oh but he is always passing it back. Nope no more than any other player and he was keeping possession which is what a lot of people were screaming the team should have been doing in the last 15 minutes.

    Gomez. At right back. In Rome. Hell no. Might give Clyne a go if he is not injured,

    Well anyone unhappy at 5-2 is a right miserably sod as far as I am concerned. Would have taken 2-0 at half time although I had us down to win 3-1 on the night. For the first 20- 25 minutes Roma looked the better team and we looked to struggle a little. But once the first went in Roma fell away just like City as we upped our game. Some glaring misses by Mane immediately before though made me think tonight might not be our night. It was great to see Mo and Bobby get couple each and Mane eventually found the net. But once again, pissing about with a throw in not far from our own box caused us problems. And I do not think van Dijk covered himself in glory tonight. The last 20 minutes he looked off the pace but to be fair most of the team tired again as a long hard season catches up with them. Shame about Chamberlain sounds like he has done his cruciate ligaments but fingers crossed it is not. At 5-0 we probably could have said we were in the final. At 5-2 they have a chance but I think we will score there. Hopefully van Dijk does not piss about in the first couple of minutes asking for a foul he is not going to get. Lovren will get panned for that header but otherwise I thought he had a good game. It is bloody annoying we are getting solid penno shouts turned down yet refs are giving iffy ones against us. Could Milner really have got his arm out of the way of that driven shot from that range.

    Danny Ings

    Bit like Ings needing the monkey off his back then. Which he has done. Oh and Jurgen loves Ings like he does Henderson.

    I am gobsmacked. One of them did not find that violent conduct. No wonder none of them are going to the world cup.

    Fifa corruption

    Saw that a couple of weeks ago. Do not know where in the current calender they think these two tournaments will fit. A 24 club World Club Cup jesus wept. Really is time Europes top clubs fought back and said enough is enough.

    Summer 2018 Transfer Thread

    Gaurdiolas policy is going to be like Abramovic during Mourinhos first spell at Chelsea. Buy every quality player they can for your squad and it stops your domestic competitors dead and your European competitors to a slightly lesser degree. It is down to whether the player wants a shitload of money playing a bit part role with long spells on the bench but picking up medals. I guess many players nowadays do not have a problem with this.

    West Brom 2 Liverpool 2 (Apr 21 2108)

    I was disappointed with Jurgens comments after the game. I think on reflection a day or so later he will be too. He is normally a lot more classy than that and some of the stuff he came out with. I can well understand him being pissed off at the pitch the shite reffing decisions the shite defending of Gomez late on plus a couple of others who some people have raved over and the result. But whatever our players should be able to judge the weight of a pass on a dry or wet pitch and far too many were wayward. West Brom eventually went for shit or bust and it very nearly paid off for them. After their equaliser I only thought the next goal was coming to them not us and if there had been another 10 minutes to play well the result does not bear thinking about. After all the great performances recently this was a big disappointment although I can understand the players having an eye on Roma first leg as loads of fans and local media have had them on the final never mind the semi. I do not generally agree with the idea our squad quality drops off alarmingly outside the first eleven as some say. If it was not for the semi andplayers playing a conservative game we would have won that with the same team on another day. With the exception of City I think the quality of Spurs Chelsea and Uniteds squads outside their first eleven are no stronger.

    Danny Ings

    Ings is not going anywhere unless he wants to try his luck elsewhere. Jurgen loves his battling qualities and Ings has the desire to continue.

    Next season's title race

    That is a good shout actually. The PL is stronger and 2 quality teams will miss out on the top 4. Spurs could suffer if Pochetinno decides to move on. Chelsea and Arsenals fortunes will depend who they get in to manage them. I could see UEFA stopping EL winners qualifying for the following seasons CL if England Spain or Germany regularly get 5 clubs in the CL via this route.

    Next season's title race

    Ha. And you told me I was being a pessimist when I said City would stand between Jurgen and winning a title for us. Only difference is I think we will run City closer next season so I am say we will be 2nd or 3rd.

    Nothing like leaving it late. To be fair Napoli wanted it more and looked the better team.
