      Klopp sounded really fed up and frustrated in that press conference. He is basically saying, we have little chance now, so let's just finish our last Champions League match with a good performance, and ideally a win.

      Yeah 3-4-2-1 is risky esp if Messi plays through the middle a lot and the 2 midfielders would be just passers-by. Think we'll most probably see Milner-Gini-Hendo.

      No Bobby and no Salah. It’s not happening this year. Them misses in the first leg have now become even more vital.

      Mo will play mate. He won't miss this one. He will want to put things right and can see him taking the Barca game by the scruff of the neck and getting us over the finish line.

      You were saying!  :P :P ;D

      All I can say is that this once again is a stark reminder that we NEED more than 3 quality attackers, get it sorted in the summer Jürgen, then we'll be unstoppable.

      That's sum dream. And messi suarez and couts not to score. Well be even bigger comeback than Istanbul. The wee fkn gnome be back to rolling round like first leg. Don't rate origi or sturridge no pace. If we had our front three for both ties I think we go through. Like last year's final losing salah when we were on top. These Spanish teams do anything to win. I play the ox shaqri and mane.

      Only trouble with this is how do you get a couple of quality strikers if they no there likely to be only a sub. Maybe rotate them round more next season. We need top quality two strikers who if Bob Mo or sadio is out can have similar impact and a playmaker be nice.

      Would be great, and maybe just maybe Barca might get a bit complacent hearing the team news. IN any case we have nothing to lose tomorrow so just go for it from the first whistle.

      Same problem Citeh have but they cope with it by rotating, its not a problem. I think we need one top player who can slot right in together with Brewster and then have Divvy as an extra option if needed.

      .....Rhian Brewster through the middle with Mane & Shaqiri either side, i know,  I know he's green as f**k, hasn't kicked a ball in anger etc etc, but, he's a complete unknown and totally fearless, if he can give us a hour, look, clutching at straws here but he's a natural and i think, why the f**k not, we're up against it anyway, Not too enamoured with Divock or Studge in a front 3 with Mane, reality is we ain't getting through to Madrid,  Not without Mo, Bobby & Naby,  so F**k it, throw caution to the wind and lets have a real f***in go at them, Kamkazi Klopp having a pop,

      Sadly it's unlikely we'll be gracing the Final this season, but I'd love us to have a real f***in go at them,  if we lose by 2/3 so be it, it matters not a jot, we've already had a incredible season , reaching the  semi again really is a fantastic effort, so let's not be too down hearted....next season...We Go Again!!

      Nice idea if he had ever played top flight football, but he would have to be Rooney'esque to be able to just slot into a game like that. I think it has to be Mane up top leading the line but I'd then play 2 extremely advanced AM's and have both full backs bombing up in support. I'd like to see Ox and Shaq as the 2 AM's then have a solid block in midfield of Milner, Hendo and Fabinho to cover for the Fullbacks and crowd out the middle as much as possible.

      That might work, I just hope Jürgen doesn't go with Studge and Origi replacing Mo and Bobby.

      Fact is all three are in summer tournaments also. We can’t go into another season where the only option is the 3 of them . Origi/Sturridge are useful but the drop off is enormous.

      I want Dybala or Havertz, both is acceptable.

      No Bobby and no Salah. It’s not happening this year. Them misses in the first leg have now become even more vital.

      Whatever about our chances without Bobby, without Mo aswell really can't see it happening unfortunately :(
      Obviously will be hoping for the best, but such a shame injuries have caught up with us again.
      Would've been a tough ask even with those two lads playing.
      Might go with:

                            Alisson
                  TAA Matip VVD Robbo
                      AOC Fab Gini
                     Shaq Mane Origi


      Still in with a chance of both :) … but be interesting to see how things stand this day next week … not long to go now ...

      VVD playing as striker?

      Don't forget:
      Quote
      At the beginning of his time in the first team we actually used him as a striker, first and foremost, especially at the end of games when we were looking for a goal,” Tim Sparv, who was with Van Dijk at Groningen, says.
