      We thrive on pressure it's part of reasons why we are where we're at ,arguably the best side in England, Definitely the best side in Europe, like it has already been mentioned,  this is  just the start,

      This pressure we thrive on has been building for years, more so since Jürgen came in, back then the pressure was less because we were not competitive enough, struggling for a top 4 finish, entry into the CL and about a million miles from even considering a premiership title challenge,  bit different now though,  the shackles are well and truly off...

      ...Ask yourselves this...where else in the World of club football would you find a team, a squad of players so willing to fight for each other as we have, that have the will the knowledge , and the passion,  and never ever give up mentality within their own individual minds,
      The answer is No one, not even those oily Whores from Eastlands can match us for team spirit and togetherness,  we are a true, 'Band of Brothers '

      Remember Shanks making us...
      ....'A Bastion of invincibility '

      Jürgen is doing the same  !!

      There will be more pressure to win even more things, but it won't be the nervous pressure we felt at times last season, it will be good positive pressure which all successful teams and individual sportsmen put on themselves.

      There cannot be any more pressure than the pressure we faced this season playing Bayern, Barca, P.S.G. and others and then  go all season and only lose one league match. Anfield is once again the fortress it used to be thank you Jürgen Klopp.

      I believe winning put less pressure on the players since now they have something to show for a couple years of great football and Klopp to get the monkey off his back with never winning in a big final. I do also think with this group the expectation will rise as of result of winning because I know myself I am looking for this to be the start of a run of silverware over the next couple of seasons, not having this UCL win being the peak of this team.

      I don't know about more or less pressure, but I do think it will give the players even more belief, and even a bit of swagger and arrogance (the right sort).

      There's always a danger when a manager says "This is impossible for any team, except you" (paraphrased) that the players will think it's just geeing them up, but after the semi, and then lifting the trophy, the same players may start thinking "You know, the gaffer is right, we're a brilliant team" and that's what makes teams think they are beaten before they step out to face us.
      They see that arrogance, that swagger, that determination in the tunnel and they start to think "this could be a long afternoon".

      We see it all the time with city, where teams go into damage limitation mode before a ball has been kicked.

      I think we'll see it happen a lot more with us next season.
