      Great video from the club of some light training in Marbella. Looks like they are playing some type of tease the cat game, and Mo, Bobby, Sadio, Gini and either Adam or Moreno (too far away for me to tell) are totally taking the piss out of the poor souls trying to win the ball. I know I could probably see this kind of thing from many professional teams in their training, but the technique, flair and common understanding between these players is still awesome to see.

      Yeah they were doing a rondo, just a common possession game. I do it on Sunday with my team and, believe me, it’s not as easy as they make it look.

      From my prospective its gegenpress from the whistle! If we sit back at all and attempt to hit them on the counter they will punish any mistakes harshly! We must dictate the pace and tempo of the game.
      Any concerns I have centre around our mental strength after 70 minutes. This can be won by then, we've demonstrated that fact amply this season.

      Oh and I hope Lady Luck has got her flight booked and ticket?

      Prediction......I haven't got a clue, spoken like a true sh*thouse! :f_whistle: :f_wah: :lmao:

      We need to put pressure on Real Madrid from the kick off just like we did against Roma at Anfield. Once in front we cannot any slip ups at the back, just bring that cup back to Anfield.

      I agree, it really is that simple, we need to pressure and swarm them, we need to be at least 2 goals ahead by the 70th minute otherwise I'll be extremely nervous.

      Get at their fullbacks and we'll open up space to pull them apart. Kroos and Modric are not mobile at all and their attackers aren't going to drop back to help, either.

      Of course, with the ball, they pose a different and serious threat. But I think our game plan in Europe sets us up well to be able to strike and cause them serious problems.

      Just hurry the f**k up already.

      The Foreign Office have chipped in again!!

      Liverpool FC v Real Madrid travel advice
      Travel advice for Liverpool fans travelling to Kyiv for the UEFA Champions League Final between Liverpool FC and Real Madrid on Saturday 26 May.

      Advice for fans travelling to Ukraine for Liverpool FC’s match with Real Madrid on 26 May 2018

      Date: Saturday 26 May 2018

      Venue: Olimpiyskiy Stadium, Kyiv

      Kick off time: 9.45pm (local time)

      Passports and visas
      you don’t need a visa to enter Ukraine for less than 3 months, but your passport should be valid for the proposed duration of your stay

      if you are travelling by road through Belarus, you will need a visa. Check out FCO travel advice for Belarus

      your European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) is not valid in Ukraine, so comprehensive travel insurance is essential, even if you’re only going for one night. It could save you a lot of money if you get into difficulties

      you must carry your passport with you at all times. Police may carry out passport checks on foreign nationals and your original passport is required since no other document can provide information on your legal status in Ukraine. Policemen should introduce themselves (name, post, rank, reason for ID check) and present a document verifying their position

      always take care of your passport, as getting a replacement is costly and time-consuming; keep a photocopy separately from the original document and make sure your next of kin details on the back page of your passport are up to date

      if you lose your passport, you’ll need to get an Emergency Travel Document from the British Embassy in Kyiv. The fee for travel document is £100.

      Travel arrangements
      it may take several hours or longer to get across the land border

      you can find information on how to get to the city centre on the websites of Kyiv’s two main airports: Boryspil airport and Kyiv (Zhulyany) airport

      you can plan your route on Kyiv public transport using the eway website

      use official taxis which display the name and telephone number of the taxi company. Agree the fare with a taxi company or a driver in advance

      Getting to the stadium
      the Olimpiyskiy stadium is located on 55 Velyka Vasylkivska street in central Kyiv, about 2 km from Maydan Nezalezhnosti (Independence Square), 3 km from the central railway station, 35 km from Boryspil airport and 8 km from Kyiv (Zhulyany) airport

      it takes around 30 to 40 minutes to walk to the stadium from the city centre

      Olimpiyska metro station will be closed before and after the match. The nearest metro stations that will be operating are Palats Sportu and Ploshcha Lva Tolstoho

      At the match
      buy match tickets only from an authorised seller

      tickets to the stadium are holder specific. You might be asked to show your passport to enter the stadium

      Liverpool fans will be seated in blocks 37-55 (lower level) and 40-56 (upper level) in the north stand - the nearest entrance to these sectors in the stadium is from Esplanadna and Saksahanskogo streets

      doors open 3 hours before kick-off – get to the stadium early, as access can be slow due to ticket and security checks

      there are designated rows for wheelchair users in the away sections, which can be reached via lifts from the ground floor

      no large bags (over 20x25x45cm) are permitted inside the stadium. Luggage of a bigger size has to be left at accommodation or stored in lockers near Shevchenko Park (see below)

      no fireworks, smoke bombs, poles for flags are allowed to be brought into the ground. Pitch invasion is prohibited (see Rules of conduct at the stadium)

      police and security staff have the authority to deny entry into the stadium to supporters under the influence of alcohol or drugs; alcohol is banned inside the stadium

      smoking is not allowed anywhere at the stadium

      food outlets and toilets will be available at the rear of the seating area

      items should be paid for by cash in the local currency

      obey instructions from the stadium security to avoid being removed from the stadium and detained by the police

      fans may be kept behind for a time to be determined by police/ stadium security after the match

      Taras Shevchenko Park
      a meeting point for Liverpool FC supporters will be set up in Taras Shevchenko Park. Food and beverage facilities, toilets and flight information will be provided here. The meeting point is open on 26 May until 6pm and after the match from midnight to 6am

      if you have a ticket for the match, you will be able to use free shuttle buses to travel between Borispol airport and the meeting point

      a bag deposit facility will be available near the park, on the way to the stadium

      from Taras Shevchenko Park, it is a 15 minute walk to the stadium

      UEFA Champions Festival
      The UEFA Champions Festival will be held on Kyiv’s main Khreshchatyk Street, between Independence Square and the TSUM Department Store. The Festival will be open from 24 to 27 May from 11am to 11pm on 24 and 25 May, from 11pm to 8pm on 26 May and 11am to 9pm on 27 May. There is no scheduled public viewing of the Final at the Festival
      Tips
      most trips to Ukraine are trouble free, however there have been cases of violent attacks on foreign nationals in Kyiv and some of these may have been racially motivated, so take extra care and be vigilant at all times

      be aware of the current political situation (in particular the tension between Ukraine and Russia) and avoid any action that could provoke a hostile reaction

      the pavements, even on the main roads, are difficult to negotiate for those with disabilities. Access to public transport is also difficult

      the currency of Ukraine is the Hryvnia (UAH). US dollars and Euros are the easiest currency to exchange, Sterling may be exchanged at a limited number of sites, Scottish and Northern Ireland notes are not accepted. Use banks and official exchange booths and keep the receipt as you may need to produce it if you exchange money back on departure

      ATMs are available and credit cards are widely used in Kyiv
      as in any other city beware of pickpockets and bag snatchers at airports, railway stations, around the town centre, in the stadium and when using public transport; keep valuables and wallet out of sight
      take special care not to leave jackets or bags containing wallets or passports unattended if you’re in a restaurant or a bar
      be wary of accepting drinks in bars from strangers or people you’ve just met

      drinking alcohol is prohibited in public places (except bars, restaurants). Local alcoholic drinks are often stronger than in the UK so make allowance for this

      smoking is prohibited in public places, including bars, bus stops, subways, the metro, playgrounds, parks and the stadium itself. Use designated areas for smoking

      don’t get involved with drugs - the penalties are severe

      drink bottled water; this is readily available from local shops and hotels

      for the latest information on safety and security - visit our travel advice page for Ukraine
      Lost wallets
      If you lose your wallet try to cancel your credit cards as soon as possible. British consular officials cannot provide you with the funds to help you return home. You can receive money from relatives or friends in the UK via commercial money transfer agencies, e.g. Western Union and MoneyGram.

      If you are arrested
      British consular officials can visit you in remand / prison at your request and give you the list of English speaking lawyers if you need one. But they cannot get you out of prison, represent you in court or pay your bills. If you wish to see a consular official please make this request clear to the local police authorities.

      Not at all overly concerned about them if I'm honest, what I've seen doesn't fill with fear like RM side's of the past,
      In fact it could be argued that they fear us irrespective of their experience of late and of being favourites....i remember the same scenario in '05', nobody gave us a cat in hell's chance of beating the Rossineri...and we all know how that turned out 😁😁😁😁😁,

      Jürgen will have done due diligence for every player likely to feature in the final, he would have studied their strength's and weaknesses and figured out a game plan to suit,
      Zidane likewise, however, at this moment in time I'm struggling to find a side that could cope with the way we Swarm all over them, we play as a total unit where every player knows almost with instinct what is about to occur,  it is not perfect of course but we have swept teams aside on a regular basis in this competition from the group stages thru to the final itself...and good sides at that,
      With our method of play, we start of kind of slow..ish but grow into a rhythm and carry it through 75-80% of the game,

      The movement up front with Mo Mane & Bobby is very difficult to manage, and i can see RM struggling to cope with them,

      Perhaps only Bayern could manage us as they are more defence minded but i guess we'll never know,

      I'm quietly confident that no6 will be delivered one week tomorrow, too early to get excited but i bet this week coming f***in drags...but come it will...can't wait to see that f**king smug kunt Ladyboy's face at the end, and not forgetting that other smug tw*t Ratboy....his taxi is fuelled and waiting, kunt !!

      the first semi with Bayern and Real was incredibly slow paced and when Bayern turned up the heat in the second leg Real struggled.
      If we are on our game I feel we will cause them real problems and hopefully many of them.

      In fact it could be argued that they fear us irrespective of their experience of late and of being favourites....i remember the same scenario in '05', nobody gave us a cat in hell's chance of beating the Rossineri...and we all know how that turned out 😁😁😁😁😁,

      Jürgen will have done due diligence for every player likely to feature in the final, he would have studied their strength's and weaknesses and figured out a game plan to suit,
      Zidane likewise, however, at this moment in time I'm struggling to find a side that could cope with the way we Swarm all over them, we play as a total unit where every player knows almost with instinct what is about to occur,  it is not perfect of course but we have swept teams aside on a regular basis in this competition from the group stages thru to the final itself...and good sides at that,
      With our method of play, we start of kind of slow..ish but grow into a rhythm and carry it through 75-80% of the game,

      The movement up front with Mo Mane & Bobby is very difficult to manage, and i can see RM struggling to cope with them,

      Perhaps only Bayern could manage us as they are more defence minded but i guess we'll never know,

      I'm quietly confident that no6 will be delivered one week tomorrow, too early to get excited but i bet this week coming f***in drags...but come it will...can't wait to see that f**king smug kunt Ladyboy's face at the end, and not forgetting that other smug tw*t Ratboy....his taxi is fuelled and waiting, kunt !!

      From my prospective its gegenpress from the whistle! If we sit back at all and attempt to hit them on the counter they will punish any mistakes harshly! We must dictate the pace and tempo of the game.
      Any concerns I have centre around our mental strength after 70 minutes. This can be won by then, we've demonstrated that fact amply this season.

      Oh and I hope Lady Luck has got her flight booked and ticket?

      Prediction......I haven't got a clue, spoken like a true sh*thouse! :f_whistle: :f_wah: :lmao:

      the first semi with Bayern and Real was incredibly slow paced and when Bayern turned up the heat in the second leg Real struggled.
      If we are on our game I feel we will cause them real problems and hopefully many of them.

      The whole footballing world will be watching this game. Liverpool win this, every player in the world will want to be at this club.

      All of the above, plus.... Just don't sub a forward for a defender in the last 15 mins Jürgen.  Our lads will run themselves into the ground for you. DONT TRY FIX IT IF IT ISNT BROKEN, AND DONT MAKE SUBS JUST TO LET SOMEONE GET MINUTES TOWARDS THE END.
      I'm convinced we'll be ahead late on, don't give them a way back into it.
      Tattoos do hurt a bit, but I just can't wait for my next one. My 6th Gold Star.

      4-0 Liverpool.

      Dawn of a new era..

      Empire of the Klopp...

      We need to put pressure on Real Madrid from the kick off just like we did against Roma at Anfield. Once in front we cannot any slip ups at the back, just bring that cup back to Anfield.

      I agree, it really is that simple, we need to pressure and swarm them, we need to be at least 2 goals ahead by the 70th minute otherwise I'll be extremely nervous.

      Get at their fullbacks and we'll open up space to pull them apart. Kroos and Modric are not mobile at all and their attackers aren't going to drop back to help, either.

      Of course, with the ball, they pose a different and serious threat. But I think our game plan in Europe sets us up well to be able to strike and cause them serious problems.

      Just hurry the f**k up already.

      Swarm . Nice word that. Even better when Poetry Is In Motion on the pitch.

      Bought myself a new scarf online from the official club shop.

       ;D

      As far as the game is concerned keep dropping the ball over Marcelo... he won't track back.

      and like we did at Porto, vs. Man City at home, vs. Spartak, vs. Maribor, 1st half vs. Seville. Like we do.
