      I feel like with all the out rage of diving and cheating there are few supporters here who never watch South and Latin America football much before. I am sure some Canadian and American who heard of the term "CONCACAF'ed" when you play these type of teams it is how they play. If the ref is going to call fouls for time player fell over or yelled in a tackle then they will play on it and I notice towards the end of the game crafty Milner did it once to get a foul call to kill off some time. It isn't the greatest thing to watch and it is frustrating as hell to watch when in this Flamengo doing much more than us but it is what it is. It just makes the victory so much sweeter.

      As far as the game we didn't create many chances but the ones we did we should of have banged 1 or 2, especially first 10 mins when Firmino and Ketia wasted good chances to score. Firmino had a good showing when he got on the ball which was not a whole lot but nice to see him bang in another goal. Salah was meh and Mane did nothing until 80 minute onwards when Flamengo defenders were tired. Hendo I will give a lot of credit to, he has really picked up his game since Fabinho got hurt and seems to have more faith in pingin the bal forwards and doing it to great affect. Gomez looked good as well which is nice to see for him.

      Gutted for Ox, seeing the injury happen and the boot on his foot doesn't look good but hopefully looks worst than it is.

      The ref was really weak, but it's funny how people are projecting that into the players. It's not their fault that a foul wasn't given outside the box (which seemed the most natural call) on that VAR review, for instance. I saw people complaining about Mané's yellow, but that one I thought was deserved. He was fouled first but the card was appropriate. Salah's not so much. But then again Milner fell like he had been shot when it was actually Diego's hand that touched him. If complaining and being on the ref's faces constantly really is such horrible "cheating", it does make me laugh to remember how Mascherano and Suarez were worshipped in this forum. Oh and most definitely there isn't any merit to any calls of penalties for handball in that game.

      To add a touch of normality, you are alluding to the widely held belielf that players do feign injury and mostly when there are winning or trying to cling on to a draw. It's obviously very difficult to for a ref to assess whether a player is play acting. All teams do it, some more than others and the temptation, in a game when your opponents are overdoing it and feigning injury, is to get a bit of your own back and we did a little bit of that.

      Generally we are 'clean' and try to win with integrity and honesty but I'll bet supporters from every team claim that.

Seen two vids, one of them with Adrian bringing the trophy and then starting up a chant of "Champione"  :f_doh: and then another of the whole squad lined up singing "Allez Allez Allez"

      Avoided knowing the result for two days and just watched the full match on DVR. So happy to see the team lift this trophy.

      It was certainly earned. What a hard-fought match against I thought a very good team. I thought we deserved to win but again, nothing given to us in this one - Flamengo showed me some very good qualities.

      On the penalty/VAR thing - has there been an official explanation? My guess is the communication on the screen about inside/outside the box as the reason for the review was incorrect? That it was really for the penalty decision altogether? I don't know how it becomes a drop ball, other than that the communication on the graphic as to the reason for the review was wrong.

      I went with Jordan as MOTM but can understand Joe Gomez, who I'm delighted for. I wish I could vote for our fitness coach (is it Andreas?) because we are clearly fitter than our opponents at the end of matches, and it is making a difference in a record season. I also love how Jürgen has the team play in a way that brings out this fitness difference. Mentality is one part of all of our late goals this season, but it also comes down to sheer fitness. We wear teams down over the course of a match.

      Hoping for the best for Ox...and Gini...and Dejan...and Joel...and Fabinho. Amazing our results considering how many top players we are missing. GREAT man management by Klopp through all of this.

      World Champions!

      The thing that impressed me was after the presentations was seeing Adrian with his arm around Alisson celebrating.He looked genuinely pleased and it is no wonder we are doing so well with so much comeradie in the squad.Thank you Jürgen Klopp for putting Liverpool F.C.on top of the world,the envy of all other clubs.

      Like Billy, I remember the arrival of Mr Shankly followed by the great Bob Paisley, and the great years that followed. I am glad  to say that Jürgen has earned his place in  their illustrious company. Hopefully for many years to come.

      Thank you, Jürgen for putting us back on our perch.

      p.s. Merry Christmas and a very successful New Year to all Liverpool fans, old and young. You're lucky, you  support the best club in the world.

      Yes Klopp is amongst the greats already, it will be exciting to see how much more we can win over the next however many years he stays with us. At the moment we have a relatively young team and a superb recruitment process, its looking very positive.

      This is a great competition, but in our environment, you have to sell it to people. And it's like trying to sell the Eurovision Song Contest. No matter how hard you try, there will always be people who will condemn it and belittle it and devalue it at every opportunity. Just what do you say when people compare this tournament to the Charity Shield?

      We should have been ahead in the first minute, but Robbie sent his shot halfway to Riyadh. Then we looked like we had it in our hands in injury time, when the penalty was provisionally given. It looked like a case for a penalty or a free kick could be made, one of Mane's feet was on the line. Having overturned his decision, what the ref did next was bizarre. If he doesn't give us a free kick, he has to book Mane again. If he gives us a free kick, he has to dismiss the defender. Instead he gives a drop ball. I can't explain that.

      It didn't matter in the end, because Robbie finally took his chance, at his third attempt. Our first ever goal in the final brought us our first ever win. We've come a long way from a wretched cup tie against Reading at the start of the decade to the top of the tree at the end. We are now the Best Club Team In The World. So it's ok to wheel this classic out again. Merry Christmas Redmen.

      417 Days.

      That's how long since we became World Champions. The longest single year champions in history. So how was it for you?

      It's been a great time, when we were the best team in our domestic league, home continent, and the world of football. Now we hand the title and the badge on, but hopefully it won't be long before it's us again.
