      Who will be our ray kennedy and howard gayle in the 2nd leg this time. Was that really 38 years ago ?

      I remember it well.  Gayle (whatever happened to him?  LFCs first black player.) tore them apart but was kicked to hell by their lads and had to be subbed as he was in danger of lamping somebody.  Kennedy, with his usual balletic grace, chested down and slid it home with his wrong foot from the edge of the box.  Scenes.

      I think we'll see Keita do the Gayle thing (he's starting to look a threat, just needs the final ball or shot), and I can see Fab or Gini popping up with the Kennedy job! 

      Hopefully this European campaign ends like that one did in '81.  38 years?  Holy sh*te.

      Keita is getting better. You can see him becoming more comfortable.

      But why won't he shoot?  :f_steam:

      Was a good night last night , started with great sing song in Tia , then a very passionate rendition of YNWA inside Anfield ,
      Thought Bayern came to defend and they did it well to a point , had we taken any of the half chances we created we would have sailed through ,
      Thought Henderson was excellent last night in fact it’s hard for me to think of a better game he’s played for us,
      Our makeshift defense has an excellent game very rarely troubled and lets not forget they had a world class striker up against them in Lewandowski he hardly had a sniff
      Trent was a little wasteful but first proper game back so can be forgiven
      Thought Hummels had a great game ,al in all Bayern came to suck the life out of the game with play acting and time wasting suited them , how they only got four mins extra time was a joke there was three just for the subs ,
      Will be tight be tight again out theee but I fancy us to go through they will have to come out more which should give us a bit more freedom
      Last night was a good warm up for Sunday for a team I think will use similar game spoiling tactics COYR .

      the 0-0 draw is the best result we could of got if we didnt win.....

      however we should many signs of immaturity last night, poor decision making, no composure in the final third and some nerves and immaturity that we didn't show for the 1st half of the season...hopefully we can remain calm and kick on

      Gentle warning to proponents of heavy metal football in the second leg. It may well come down to a cautious tactical chess game with sideways and backward passes as with some typical knockout games like the WC.

      If it does, please don't be too disappointed. Just bash Jordan the fall guy for this type of game. :lmao: The 0-0 penalty scenario mooted by some of us wouldn't surprise me if it happens. Both teams have quality and still everything to play for. Minimising silly mistakes will also be a priority.

      All I'm saying is that, please be patient with the lads and the coaching staff if we don't get entertained in the heavy metal, smash and grab, risky Hollywood moves manner.

      If it takes caution to win a game, so be it. For those expecting full throttle every single game, this may turn otherwise. If I'm wrong, I'm wrong. But I thought we fans should have a more balanced expectation on how we should approach this game, as long as we secure a win.

      Again "back and side passes" is not all necessarily bad. I think at times they allow our players to rest, draw out the opponent or create spaces. They do serve different purposes. So long as it's a positive result, I'll a boring win all day.

      Remember the game well & paul breitner calling us boring after the first leg.
      stroke of genius from sir bob to bring Gayle on cos Bayern didn’t have a clue about him & as you say he ran them ragged,good scouser too.

      It wasn't a horrendous game by any means.
      It was a good tactical battle, and Bayern changed things around at half time, making the 2nd half much harder for us.
      Both teams were trying to force things a bit too much, but that's understandable when it's so tight.

      Will they come out a bit more at home?
      I guess we'll have to wait and see.

      Really not worth the effort Walt. The prior post in our exchange I was explicit that he was the best player on the park.

      Dude just writes what he wants to believe - reality is a prisoner.

      I should’ve left on ignore.

      I actually voted for Fab even though I am a big fan of what Hendo does for this team. I am now wondering if a Fab and Virgil Partnership could possibly be even better than the one with Joe he looked so at home there more so than Joel who had a decent game

      No issue with anyone thinking Fab had a good game - he did.

      I was rejecting the notion I hadn’t objected to the poster’s subjective tosh about Hendo being “ok”.

      The manager rates him, the England manager rates him, most pundits rate him , most if not all ex players rate him and all true Reds rate him because he is a very good player who performs the role his manager asks him to do and he is trusted. He was superb last night along with Gini they put a wall in front of the CB's who never looked. we defended well last night and created enough to win but the clean sheet was hugely important and it will put the fear of God into Bayern realising we can score at any moment in the game and we will have Virgil back too.

      It's funny that people that want to slate his performance are picking out him not having many incisive passes...when that really wasn't the part of his game that was the most amazing. How he protected his CBs and kept possession and kept the ball moving is where he really stood out to me. He was everywhere and really marshaled the midfield (ours and theirs). Fab was great in his makeshift role, but for my eyes, Henderson was one of the best players on the pitch last night.

      Not to mention the drilled pass to (I think) Keita that went 30 yards through a packed Bayern midfield like a f**king exocet, and took them all out of the game.

      He was spraying it about really well until Bayern closed off our avenues in the 2nd half by changing their shape and playing slightly higher, and even then he was pinging it out wide really well.

      It's the sort of thing he does all the time, but for some reason, people pretend they don't see it.
      I've said it before, what I see from some on here is basically replicated from twitter and facebook groups.

      Thought the first half we were very good going forward, with a few shaky moments at the back. Second half we cut down the defensive mistakes, but didn't play as well going forward. Overall still thought it was a pretty good performance. They are quality, obviously, and defended well. We were the better side overall, but not by a big margin.

      Hendo MOTM. Everybody played pretty well except our fullbacks ( and goalie in the first half). Credit to Fab and Matip for keeping Lewandowski and co so quiet. First time playing together, and one of them is a CM - thought they looked a genuinely good CB partnership. Very pleasing to see that we have that option if VVD were to get injured. Probably the biggest plus of the night in fact.

      Result is not brilliant, but ok. Be tough over there, but we were never going to roll over them last night. It's still evenly poised and we can definitely still go through.

      I also thought the patient type approach was the right one for this game from Jürgen. I've moaned about us being a bit too patient in the odd game this season, but think it was right for this one. Also think it will be the right one against the Mancs, as I expect them to defend and play on the counter-attack. No need to play into the hands of them either.

      Anyway, yeah, pretty happy with the performance last night, and still think we a have a good chance to go through.

      Bayern changed their shape second half and were almost playing with 3 holding midfielders, as well as being a bit higher in open play.
      It made them very difficult to break down, but also limited their attacking options.
      They kept the centre very solid, packed even, and did well to frustrate us after a first half where they gave us quite a few openings.

      Disappointing for us, but sometimes you have to give kudos to the opposition.

      More pessimistic about our chances since realizing that we never did well in games against top teams we couldn't afford to lose:

      @PSG: fail
      @Red Star: fail
      @City (recent PL game): fail

      In addition we look significantly worse on the road esp. against good teams. Only @Spurs did we look decent but that's centuries ago. All that doesn't mean sh*t but doesn't make one optimistic either.

      So tell me, do the winners of this game play the winners of Lyon v Barcelona? Is that how it works or is there another draw? You’d think I’d know by now but never gave it much thought.

      Edit: Come to think of it, I’m pretty sure it’s the former as I seem to remember being happy about Roma beating Barcelona last season.

      LFC has scored 1 goal or fewer in 6 of 8 games in 2019.
      Their 2 multi goal games in 2019 came at home vs league fodder
      LFC could not score at home vs Bayern
      LFC has totaled 1 road goal in 3 Champions League away matches this season

      LFC's corner kicks are an exercise in futility

      Maybe borg is onto something, I think from distant memory a Bird theory, x amount of this and x amount of that and you get the probability that x will likely happen, so turning that theory into football related we may well achieve all the exact opposites of borgs post, yeh
