      Just heard my father in law who is 86 on his way to the game he goes early, but the ground wasn't open till an hour before the game was speaking to another older person, when the bus arrived and a copper pushed him luckily he hit a wall other wise he would have fallen over, shameful.

      Quote from Boston not la
      Surprised at how packed the pub was more than the dortmund game and uefa cup final i'd guess.Only downer was how quick everyone fu**ed off after the final whistle,gotta f**king celebrate times like this not run off home.oh well...Boston. :kop5cf8koxp6:  :drinking:

      Winning first legs at home generally see muted celebrations, as everyone knows it's not the end of the story. Plus the game finished at 4.30 in the afternoon, I'm sure people had other things to get on with, and save the real celebrations til next week.

      I dusted off the Road To Istanbul DVD earlier in the week, for the first time in years. When we beat Juventus at home, there was barely a ripple of applause at the final whistle rather than wild celebrations, as I think most of us assumed at the time, that the road would only go so far as the second leg. The win was enough in the end, but you can't really blame people for seeing it as merely half time.

      The fines probably go in a slush fund for the EUFA big wigs.

      We can claim we kept a clean sheet because you know...we did?

      NOB.

      Oh dear.

      So if a team plays badly, concedes 5 simple goals that they should defend, but horrendous officiating negates each goal. Would that be a good performance?

      The fact that we got lucky, should not mean that the 2nd half performance was good. It was poor. Had that goal been allowed, then City would have put us under more pressure, akin to the 4-3 game. We invited on the pressure, relied on good fortune, and kept the clean sheet. But on another day, it could have fallen apart.

      If you can't see that, then fair enough.

      Special night that weren’t it. Only European nights at Anfield can cause me a midweek hangover as severe as the one I had today.

      Thought it’d be a long time before we bettered the atmosphere against Dortmund but I think this did yesterday.

      The celebration when we scored the winner against Dortmund was better than any yesterday but for sustained noise, I reckon last night was better.

      Guardiola would be pulling his hair out, if he had any, at the thought of trying to put 4 past us without us scoring on the break next week. We’re one of, if not the, best counter attacking side in Europe at the minute.

      Up the reds.

      PS. Alexander Arnold in particular was f**king superb. Hope those who were writing him off as sh*te the other week are feeling a bit daft today.

      I could see your point if City were creating chances left, right and centre and had the most extremely profligate night in front of goal but they didn't which means you're wrong. Again. Amazing how WUMS like you rely on warped hypotheticals kinda like some sort of pseudo intellectual WUMMING. But WUMMING it is and you sir are a WUM.

      Look it from another perspective, we absolutely steam rollered that much our players were a bit tired, Salah came off as a precaution and Firmino was knackered in that second half, but, what was most impressive was how we defended, apart from that chance that was offside, they had loads of possession but did f**k all with it.

      Every ball was launched to Sane, yet Trent got better & better as the game wore on and literally had Sane in his back pocket.

      It was far from poor!!

      And if Ox had put Firmino clean through on goal, chances are we would have been deservedly 4-0 up well before halftime. Instead he kept his head down on one of his runs, didn't see Firmino at all, the pass was never made, the chance disappeared, and the score stayed at 3.

      We may still go 4-0 up. Alternatively, we could be 0-2 down in 10 minutes next week, and clinging onto the lead for dear life, but we'll worry about it if/when the time comes.

      I don't want to draw too much attention to Scal-qaeda doing their bit to make sure City didn't park the bus, but you have to ask, was it really wise for the opposition to parade down Anfield Road in a bus with their badge and sponsors plastered all over it? We've all gathered around there as teams come through the gates down the years, and most sides, including ours, use just ordinary standard buses. That's all anyone needs. And the last thing any away side needs for a tie like this, is something to draw unnecessary attention to themselves. Our fans and theirs have a common enemy in English football, and we've suffered equally from the 20 Years of oppression. So there's no history of any aggro when the teams have met down the years. I'm sure that won't be affected by this unfortunate incident, and everything will run as normal again, when the return game is played.

      Can't believe I'm agreeing with lfc across the swamp here but he's right. Swings and round abouts, Dan.

      Fact is the whistle had gone and Karius and the defence were already aware it was going to be disallowed before it ended up in the net. Now, my personal opinion is he would have scored regardless but the D was already stopping well before the ball got to him so, it is what it is.

      To play your game, and as LFC already has said - Ox had a golden chance to put bobby through that was missed, and the VvD header right on half time was a bloody ripper chance as well. So if we're gonna play the game of "well if this had happened" then we can do it all day with those sliding doors moments as well. If Benteke knew how to hit a barn door then we'd be singing a completely different tune from the weekend as well.

      This happens every week in football. We've had PLENTY of unfortunate shitty ref decisions against us that have meant many lost points, so to have one go our way is just the weird karmic nature of football giving us one occasionally. Wasn't a huge deal, we deserved a big win and we got it. Move on.


      Anyway!

      Gave MOTM to Trent, though coulda gone to plenty of others. What a performance. Work has been slaying me lately and the 4:15am alarm was a f**king sh*t c**t of a thing, so what a way to wake me up than that opening half! Was well impressed with our ability to close down their threats and stifle them in the second half even if I was absolutely shitting it, the fact is we marshalled well and restricted them to half chances at best, which is what good teams do. Sure, they defo have the ability to score worldies but if we can keep them to low percentage chances, we'll be well on our way to the semis. Absolutely chuffed.

      Well in to those at Anfield as well, sounded and looked an absolute treat from afar. What a feeling to have these nights back again. Champions League nights at Anfield in the spring, this is what it's all f**king about! ;D :scarf:

      That second half was the best defensive display we have put in for years against one of the best attacks around and the best it got for them was a goal that had been disallowed which every in the stadium knew had been disallowed before it even went in and the lads had stopped playing.

      Makes me laugh you talking about ‘not reaching your standards’ when your standards have Victor Moses out there on his own as the greatest thing since sliced bread.

      it depends on the context.
      We outplayed city and didn't rely on good fortune to win the game.
      We did rely on good fortune to keep a clean sheet. They had a disallowed goal that was an extremely tight call, a lot of refs would have let it stand. We received good fortune.
      Now if that disallowed goal proves the deciding factor on who goes into the semi, then we will have relied on good fortune. If we outplay them or draw in the next leg, or lose by just 1 goal, then we didn't rely on good fortune. That doesn't take anything away from the performance that was outstanding in the last leg.

      it's not against the rules. I checked and it is against the rules to be a wum but falsely accusing of a wum isn't, so this wum branding is like when players crowed the ref in a game saying yellow card etc.. I made a post about it on the forum feedback how wum branding should be against the rules, the thread was taken down within 5 minutes... it's like oh my freaking gosh, public feedback that's not 100% positive???
