      Studge off, anyone but Origi on.

      That's right. Nothing good will happen if he comes on.

      Let's not underestimate Wolves even at home. They are classy.

      Agree it will not be easy. We have the more difficult of the two games. Then there's a question of who will be left to play for us. Sheesh!!!

      We can still do it, but nothing automatic about winning vs. Wolves.

      Just looking at the PL table, only Leicester can catch Wolves (for the possible last EL spot) with 2 wins now I know Beating Citeh is unlikely but it means BOTH teams need to win, so obviously a draw would suit both Wolves and Liverpool and allow Wolves to 'go easy on us' ;D

      How anyone can criticise Sturridge after that game tonight is just ridiculous, and just demonstrates how desperate some of our fans are to have at go at the lad.

      Did not have a bad game by a mile. Contributed, played well.. and we won over all. He was a part of a team that pulled through a scrappy, tough game. Few players were shining from tonight's game. None of our front 3 were. Salah missed some big chances - despite also scoring a great goal with a nice finish too.

      A 'striker' as Sturridge is, is going to struggle in our setup where we don't play for a Striker. You could see moments where Salah was in the space that Sturridge wanted to occupy. He's not going to play the speedy football of Mane and Salah. But he's a quality finisher, and needs opportunities that Strikers get.

      There's a few players I could have a moan at, but why? Let's enjoy the MASSIVE win for what it is!!

        Agree mate, Studge gave a Bobby impersonation for about 25 mins but the energy levels Bobby has few can match,it saw Studge play to his strengths, like facing the crowd in the corner 2 players around him,he megs the guy with a back-heel for Trent to swing it, and Mo finish it,must admit I thought it was the bollocks ,but theres no pleasing some I suppose . ;)

      One other point I gave Andy MOTM absolute stalwart what a buy this guy has been, gutsy, never stops, a quality football player ,Im so glad Robbo signed a longer deal with us,he could sign for anyone at the minute,jeez I hate to think what he`s worth now, £60,£70 ,million thank f**k he hates Paella.

      Brilliant victory, in a very entertaining game. Always plenty of goals, when these two sides meet.

      What an emotional win that was last night, was so pumped I couldn’t sleep till gone 1. We were absolutely down to the bare bones. Incredible effort to take it to the last week. I’m not sure there will be much in the tank for Barca on Tuesday night but fingers crossed Mo somehow gets clearance to play. I really don’t seeVity slipping because they have shown similar resolve to our lads but it’s been a hell of a season and I don’t think we’ll see a title race like this again. We are now 24 points ahead of Spurs in 3rd, that’s ridiculous.

      We looked mentally tired last night, probably for the first time this season. Not surprising really after the effort we put in at the Nou Camp.
      Unbelievable spirit shown by the lads to keep fighting to the end. Brilliant win.

      You must have watched another game, Sturridge was terrible.

      Kept giving the ball away and wasn't committed enough to even press like Firmino does.

      Past his best.

      "Like Firmino does.."

      Perfectly explains your criticism right there.

      We were down to the bare bones, mate.  City players and staff watching the game at home on their TVs are getting really hopeful watching it, really believing that 'this is the one, here'. Then we pop up and scrape in late on and those hopes are crushed. Can't be a good feeling, that.

      Quote from Harrisimo
      Don't agree with Souness that we were poor.

      We won the bleedin' game..taking the race to the brink...Sky and the rest should thank us from the bottom of their bank accounts..

      No they don't. The headline was written "The league will be decided this weekend", as if they are disappointed that "the greatest team the English league has ever seen...will win the league by a dozen points..." were supposed to win it a month ago, and now putting the finishing touches to a bash in front of their cameras, for this weekend. Whatever happens over the next week, the plastic party will be postponed. Instead they have to set out on the long trek to Brighton and get a result against a team they scraped into the cup final against on neutral ground, and we dug a hard fought win out of there. By contrast, our away programme is over, and our fate this season in both competitions, will be decided in our own ground, in front of our own fans, party or no party.

      As for Souness, he was handed a ready made successful side when he arrived, but reckoned Torben Piechnik was a better option than Gary Gillespie, and Mike Marsh was able to better do what Ray Houghton was doing for years. It certainly was a time when having 94 points with a game remaining, was a rank  impossibility. So when he lashes out at how poor we've played, take what he says with a large pinch of salt.

      Quote from billythered
      We were sh*te tonight, looked slow and lethargic at times, understandable considering the efforts midweek, this game should have happened tomorrow but brought forward to accommodate the semi 2nd leg,  it should have been left as it was and the second leg played on Wednesday, but of course the tw*ts that changed it didn’t want to lose out commercially the greedy kunts, Anyhoo, f**k them,

      What a win tonight, what a fantastic 3pts.

      Get the F**k in Redmen

      YNWA

      All that matters now is the win. Doesn't have to be free flowing football to entertain the neutrals. Nobody will care how it was done if the trophy comes home. We have won 10 games by one goal this season. That's 30 points alone won by scrapping results out when everyone else said we couldn't do it.

      We played this game on the only date available. When that became the only option, it looked like it was going to be the 12.30ko, further limiting our prep time, so the time we were eventually given was the best available we could hope for. UEFA have their own schedule for the European Cup, and they don't change for anyone. Tuesday-Wednesday or Wednesday-Tuesday, with the exception of Days 2 and 3 of the group stage. That is a fixed schedule for the past 20 years, and no doubt will be for the next 20 years.

      Just a note for the doubters, who had the obituaries written, prepped and ready for posting, until Origi showed up, and vanished off the face of the forum after he scored. Of course, a select few couldn't even wait that long.

      One of the most famous expressions in the sport is "Never Write Off The Germans". German sides don't panic, they don't give up, and they usually find a way through even the most stubborn opposition, in the last minute if necessary.

      The game lasts 90 minutes + injury time. It takes just a couple of seconds to put the ball in the net. We are resilient when we need to be and don't panic. One sub, one move, one cross, one shot, one header, one deflection, one opposition error, etc is all we need to win 3 points, and as we've shown against Everton, Spurs, Newcastle and others, if we have to dig a win out in the last minute, we can do that as well. We can play, we can entertain, we can fight, we can scrap, we can score, we can defend, we can pass teams off the park, we can pepper their box with 3 shots in 3 minutes if we really have to. And of course we have Anfield, now an impregnable fortress, where most opponents head home with nothing more than their bus fare.

      We may be in the EPL, but for obvious reasons, we're now very Germanic in our style and how we go about winning games, and that's why as a team, we can now finally see the top of the mountain.

      Was disappointing - to be honest I still think there’s an element of casual racism in that as much as football tribalism.

      In fairness there were a lotta fans applauding and Rafa went over to him too.

       :lmao:

      If you don't see the work Firmino puts on the pitch then that's your issue. Sturridge was mostly falling on the ground trying to win fouls and let players get past him easily without him tracking back and trying to defend. He also missed a sitter.

      Yet to you he had a ''great game''...

      I can’t see city losing to Leicester, they’ve been too strong in the league to throw it away in their last home game of the season.

      Plus I read a stat somewhere that Barcelona beat Real to the title by 1 point with both teams hitting 90+ points, so old Pep know’s what he’s doing in this space.

      But what a performance and season from Liverpool, you can’t ask for any more than that (shame we couldn’t have a domestic cup run)

      It will be devastating to not have a trophy after a wonderful season, with every c**t in every office and social media taking the piss out of Liverpool and their no trophies - but f**k them, I’ve enjoyed nearly every single game this season, how many fans can say that about their team?
