      I'm all for equal women's rights and that but where does it go? How far?

      Why are we having a game of men's football reffed by all women officials? To me, that's worse in a way. Pedantic, even?

      We all love women, massively. Not sure wanging a load of them at men's football is the right way of doing sh*t, though.

      Anyway, up the f**king reds.

      Edit: and I'm not sexist in any way, I f**king love women. Just that sometimes, this big campaign of inclusiveness, could be done a bit better.

      great to win that. hard not to worry about how much that takes out for saturday (btw why the hell are we playing on saturday at 3?!?)

      we were pretty weird, good bits, and terrible for others. cant help but still be somewhat terrified if anything happens to any of the front 3..

      Kante was unbelievable. amazed someone like PSG hasnt launched a huge bid for him.

      Over the moon. As a younger red  (born in the 90s) I haven’t seen as much success as the lucky bas**rds that were born decades ago so I really enjoyed that one haha. I look forward to seeing Henderson do that little dance he does before lifting the cups again really soon.

      Nowhere near our best again but that’s ok we’re too good not to get back there soon. That Kante is some little player too by the way, 120th minute and he was still buzzing around the pitch!

      We were nowhere near our best but the ref made a massive mistake and what is the point of  VAR if its not going to rectify mistakes.  What were they watching.   That was a crucial point in the game.  Chelsea were compact and played well when we were drawing or they were ahead.  When they got behind it they were conceding spaces and if that penalty was rightly ruled out we would have won comfortably without going into extra time.  Kante was magnificent had a fantastic game. 

      Why did we go into extra time, penalties should have proceeded after full time.  Or to have the game a little later on maybe another 2 weeks or so first week in September.  If we had played a team from another country they would have been still in preseason.

      Fantastic and over the moon another trophy in the cabinet long may it continue.  But had to have rant at the Penalty call especially because VAR had the opportunity to rectify it.  Our players are going to have an unfair disadvantage on Saturday.  UEFA do daft things so they should either have a few weeks later or no extra time if they are going to play it so early.

      Some of stuff being said in here is embarrassing, it really is

      After watching the game on replay i went back and read through the thread and i agree. Just embarrassing seeing some of those posts.

      I’ve played games at school level and Sunday league with female refs. If they’re professionals I don’t think it makes a difference. They aren’t competing.

       The only genuine scientific argument MIGHT be about the speed. And that’s probably only if it can be proven that male refs are faster than the female ones.

      UNPOPULAR OPINION: I've said it since last season: Milner is past it. Can cover at fullback but not in midfield anymore, he brings nothing now.

      Fabinho and the defense are really underperforming for whatever reason. Matip was a nightmare when he needed to pass and Fabinho did not protect the defense enough. It might not be his fault, it seems like we're defending very high now.

      What a win, Mane is still on fire and Firmino has improved too but our midfield needs to up their game and even our defense.

      A win is always a win but we need to get back at controlling games. They were dangerous and had their chances and they could have win the Cup as well but THEY DIDN'T :)

      Mane MOTM and then Gomez and Adrian.

      Quote from fields of anny rd
      Genuinely believe they didn't want to overturn her decisions unless it was a real real f**k up.

      If so its bollocks because man, woman or shaven monkey the correct decisions need to be made.

      I'm pretty sure they didn't want to be seen to be correcting her decisions because of outside influences rather than the laws of the game.

      Amazing how they had no problem telling her to look at the screen during the WWC Final.

      I saw the contact. I didn't see the foul. But
      if VAR says it's a penalty, they must have seen a foul somewhere.

      Quote from JD
      £70M keeper v the free agent.  Hmm...  Not confident, sorry.

      It's a Liverpool goalkeeper. On penalties. In Istanbul. What are the chances?

      Job Done. Slowly but surely, we're getting used to putting trophies in the cabinet. Next up, the chance to be World Champions in December.

      To be honest you can apply to most game threads, I’d take it with a pinch of salt. It’s an outlet for people to vent and posting styles change somewhat. Perfectly sensible posters can come out with all sorts of comments that are out of character when the game is going on.

      A fairly poor performance from us apart from the 10 minute blitz at the start of the second but who cares we won, that is all that really matters.
      I was fairly surprised but delighted we won that penalty shootout and all the bad luck we had with marginal ref decisions during the game was equalised by those two pens squirming under kepa.

      I am however a bit surprised by all the adulation for Adrian, I actually thought he was quite poor and I am slightly worried about us defensively with him in goal, especially since the defence looks really wobbly at the moment.

      I never read into what people say in the heat of a game, emotions far to raw and wild. Its afterwards that you can do some more analysis with a cool head.

      if VAR says it's a penalty, they must have seen a foul somewhere.

      Even if VAR got one wrong for a player who was in fact 10 yards onside you’d still be saying they got the decision right or saw something somewhere.

      They didn’t have the the different angles available at the time which is apparently why it wasn’t looked at. There’s no way the ref could have been sure there was contact or not from where she was. So many players dive in that position so you’d think it would be common sense to wait and look at it.
      VAR and the officials fu**ed up, simple as that, sorry to burst your bubble of VAR being flawless.

      And for that I thank Jürgen and our REDS,people forget that Chelsea have had decisions go their way over the years especially in the Mourinho years.Should we have sympathy for the bas**rds-no fukcing way.
      One further point it was good to see Hendo and the squad give their  support to our new goalie.Well done lads I am proud of you.

      No, you were too young. I was 10 in 2001, I do not remember the whole game but I remember clearly Hyppia and Fowler kissing the Trophy of UEFA Cup.

      Brilliant. love the man.

      Great win, cheatski played very well, better than I expected.

      We were disjointed again, can see why klopp made the changes, esp. considering it went to ET.

      Boys will be knackered v southampton, expect changes v them too.

      PS. what a player Bobbi is, makes us tick.
