      End of the day is job well done.

      Fair play to Klopp and the team!

      Remember that they were unbeaten at Home last season.

      Yea good point.

      Think everyone would have taken 2-1 before kick off to be fair.

      2-1 to us, I'd snap your hands off for it right now.

      I'm happy with that result, could have been easier. I think 5-3 would have been a truer reflection on the game to be honest. Some terrible defending by us, truly terrible.

      Our front 3 have to be absolutely world class with these defenders in the team. Just get VvD done, go and buy a real LB to start and a Midfielder and we'll be superb, but without them it's going to be like bloody groundhog day watching this team, every single match.

      Entertaining sure, but the life expectancy of LFC fans falls every match day at the moment.

      Listen, if you would of gave me a 2-1 win away, I would love of snatched it out of your hands.
      But we had several chances to possibly make this 3 to 4-0. Horrible goal we gave up.

      I'd give him a start in a competitive game before leaping to that conclusion.


      Didn't say I'd written him off. Just wasn't convinced that closing out a game away in Europe was the right time to bring him on.

      Trent needs to learn to play to the whistle rather than just stand there with his arm in the air and let the guy run past him. Really not confident with Lovren in the back line, same goes for Moreno.

      I'm glad we got the win in the end, my initial prediction was 1-1 or 2-1. I can imagine Hoffenheim will go all out attack against us in the 2nd leg to get their 2 goals but I hope we can capitalise on that.

      I know I'm being repetitive but I was already a fan of Demirbay before this game, but I thought he was by far their best player tonight as well. Particularly impressed me given the insipid performances from both Emre Can and Gini Wijnaldum. I am starting a rumour right now: Liverpool have registered interest in Demirbay.

      J/k but I can't cope with watching Lovren/Moreno and think in any way that we're doing ourselves justice.

      The one one mistake the young man made tonight though. My man of the match is Trent. Happy with that. Thought Migs was solid

      Can't believe I couldn't find a bar in Berlin showing the match!

      2 away goals against a decent European team I would have taken that before the start.

      Might as well get back to the drinking,

      Spot on mate.

      Huge sigh of relief at the end there. Think with 2 away goals we'll get the job done at home but a solid defensive shut out is not exactly what I'm expecting.

      Have to give MOTM to TAA, but he switched off for their goal, he could have easily blocked that shot or stood the attacker up. Overall, good game, but we need to fix our midfield and left side of defense.

      Agreed that the mid field duo of Can and Gini is just not working. Can goes missing, and Gini much as I was pleased to see his arrival, doesn't seem to have the drive that we need in midfield.

      Mané would probably be my MOTM. Didn't score but kept causing them lots of problems, creating chances out of nowhere. Bicakcic will be having nightmares with Sadio for a long time.

      TAA was doing very well, scored a brilliant goal, but was clearly at fault for their goal. It was more a matter of concentration than anything else - not helped by the fact Lovren was playing Uth onside. Don't even get me started on Lovren. Utter rubbish.

      The sooner Klopp remembers the reasons why he kept Moreno out of the team for a full season, the better. He's been sh*t for long enough and does not deserve more chances. Time for him to go.

      F**k it,I'll take 2-1 all day but should have been more only for some bad finishing ,we seriously need to sort that defence out though,they score &  we still sh*t our pants.
      Going for TAA for man if the match
      I could only make out the one mistake he made when he switched off for there goal but other than that I thought the lad was faultless.

      Mignolet bounced back well.

      Trent had a good game but needs to learn from that goal. Shouldn't switch off like that. Stunning goal though and that's what we should be talking about in all honesty - 18 year olds will always make the odd error.

      Lovren and Moreno down that left were an absolute disaster. Need to fix that asap or we will keep running into problems. Surely Robertson is better at LB? Or else why have we signed him? I'd be tempted to take Lovren out of the firing line at the weekend as well and bring Klavan in.

      Midfield anonymous once again. Didn't think Hendo was that bad but the other two were shocking. Think we are really missing the energy that Lallana gives us in there.

      Front three actually linked up and created much better than the Watford game but were a lot more wasteful. Could have put us out of sight but trying not to get too annoyed about it - can't expect to be scoring more than twice every away game (although with the way we are defending we need it!)

      Should be a confidence booster for the lads this, really need to see off Palace so we can start to build some momentum (and sign some f**king players in the meantime!)

      To be honest he probably couldn't understand why he was so far behind him and onside if they were playing the line they should have been

      Why the f**k Lovren was 2 yards deeper than the other 3 is mad and frankly sh*te... other three played a perfect line.

      Lovren was awful tonight..  Moreno absolutely has no brain


      Good result though..  we'll pick them off on the  break at home

      Great result, but some individual
      Horror shows of a performance took the shine off it .

      Lovren was f**king awful.

      Moreno, though good going forward, positionally awful.

      Hendo awful.

      Firmino awful.

      Thank god we seem to have a star in Trent, and Mane is a class apart going forward.
