      So can anyone play in the U23's then? BTW why would it be an issue for a reserve goalie to play in the U23's then sit on a bench for the first team?

      I think so, yeah. Likes of Matip, Chamberlain, Lallana etc have all played for our u23s in the past in order to get some minutes after a long layoff.

      And I don't think it's an issue I think it's just a blanket rule which was brought in to stop players potentially having to play two games in the space of two days. Do think it should be a bit more lenient where goalkeepers are concerned

      We have played 48 first team games this season including 29 in the league, 8 in the European Cup, 4 in the FA Cup, 3 in the League Cup, 2 in the Club World Cup, The UEFA SuperCup and the Community Shield. Adrian has start SIXTEEN matches. SIXTEEN. Last night was his third consecutive match between the sticks.

      However you feel about him as a backup keeper and his mistake last night, there is NO issue with him not getting enough game time. I'd wager you won't find another backup in a top flight league who has started 16 games unless the #1 has been injured as ours has. In other words, the initial thought of him needing more games to be ready for last night's game (which is code-speak from our resident WUM for "It's Klopp's fault."), is totally grasping at air and it's being entertained on here far too much.

      A bit hard when our number one could still be injured for the derby.

      You think we should be playing Lonergan? :laugh:

      You laugh but I honestly don't know who I'd play, I think Adrian's confidence must be completely fu**ed now, if not then its a bit weird after so many blunders recently. The problem is that I have no idea how good or bad Lonergen is. Kelleher is ok'ish but would he be better than Adrian, I'm not so sure.

      I think definitely with a goalkeeper it should be possible to play one game one day and sit on the bench the next or even play 2 games in 1 day if needed, remember that the second game would not be form the start anyway. It seems craay to have goalkeepers not getting any minutes at all throughout the majority of the season.

      Adrian will almost certainly start against Everton and probably Palace too, as soon as we get the six points we need (provided City don't drop any) then we will win the league. That being said, we're probably not going to be playing any time soon - we might see Alisson for those games after all!

      Its a fair point, Adrian has had plenty of games this season, he simply isn't good enough, hence why West Ham were happy for him to go. My point about minutes for goalkeepers was more in terms of our next one, I want us to get a real good young prospect, someone who can develop to challenge Alisson, but to attract them I think you have to offer them some opportunities a bit of game time here and there.

      We are going to have to score a f**king lot of goals in those two games, we need to go full on heavy metal "Newcastle under Keegan" mode, just outscore the opposition, because I can guarantee that any team will now target Adrian and score goals.

We have a manager who selects the team if he thinks Adrian is our best available goalkeeper then he is our best choice but don't be too upset this summer we are going to buy Neuer and Ter Stegen as back up to prevent people like you having a hissy fit when the lads lose and spoil your evening.

      Dont you worry  11000 plus posts makes you a sensible poster. Everyone has a time when they kind of lose it and say things they probably don't  mean, I've done it and others. There is always a time when emotions are like a roller coaster and and soon as you hit the post button you sometimes think oops shouldn't  have done that.
      At least you were big enough to post you made a mistake, there are a few on here who would do well to follow suit.

      Our forward were not clinical. The moment the game went into extra time, it was going to take a lot to keep a clean sheet.

      Moving on.

      Don't worry we all know how we get pissed off after a loss and let emotions get the best if us. We're 6pts away from what a lot of us have missed for 30 years, in the grand scheme of things this season, what we're about to celebrate in whatever form will put last night's defeat into perspective.

      Gonna be honest and admit during the game I called Adrian every f**king name imaginable when he fu**ed that up.

      Still thought though, we should have taken our chances earlier and later as well and we then wouldn't be where we are now.

      How Andy's header didn't go in is beyond me still and the 2 that I expected to score, Mo and Sadio didn't score in either leg so cant just single out the goalkeeper although it was a massive f**k up and it was the game changer. We were cruising and I thought we'd go on and score a couple more, think the lads did too but then just dropped their heads when that clanger happened.

      We going to go hard at this Competition next year.

      sigh, do you you even read my posts, or just get instantly triggered at seeing my name? I have said repeatedly that I do not blame Adrian, but that he is simply not good enough and we need a better #2 GK. In any case who cares the league will get suspended now and then we get Alisson back.

      Moving on.

      Yes the forwards did not take their chances, but when you get that crucial goal in extra time with 20 minutes to play you really should be able to cling on to victory, unfortunately we had a goalie who is totally out of form between the sticks and every shot they struck in extra time was spot on, just one of those things, it's football, we move on.

      I can't get over some of the posts in this thread, quite pathetic really.

      We absolutely demolished Athletico Madrid for 90 minutes, absolutely demolished them. On any other night we would have smashed them. As much as i love Diego Simeone as a manager it was hard watching Athletico playing such anti-football. I understand why he did do it though, no manager is going to come to Anfield on a European night and go toe to toe with us. Sit deep and try to counter. He had a plan and down to nothing but pure luck, it worked.

      I'm not even getting involved in the attacks on Adrian. We put any of those ten plus chances away in normal time and this discussion doesn't even happen. We failed to take our chances and Athletico didn't. It really is that simple.

      It's surprising how some of our supporters have turned lately. We've become so accustomed to winning that some people think we are now entitled to win every game we participate in. Life doesn't work like that, no team wins every game, it is impossible, that's the reason it has never happened in the history of the game and will never happen, ever.

      Though not won yet it looks highly probable that we will lift the League Title this Season. If i was asked at the start of the Season which piece of silverware i would sacrifice all others for to attain then it would be the League. It's always about the League, for me anyway.

      Let's be grateful for what has been an amazing Season so far. Klopp and the lads have done us proud and will contiue to do so for many years to come.

      Amen.

      I don't like Owen a lot after what he did, but I agree with him. We proved that we're still the best team of Europe. We dominated them and in 90 minutes, gave them no chance.  We were unlucky to have Alisson injured and a poor GK.
