      I really like the strategy in the last game to use a pacey forward in Jota in the second half to outrun the tiring defenders.

      Yes I’d go with that too Brian but that’s for next season me thinks, Jürgen will go with Gini I believe with Jota in from the get go, I’m the same hate these cu*ts, their Spain’s Mancs to me, f***in horrible cu*ts with their wee white hankies, F**k Off,
      I’ve heard that that P**ck Ramos is out, how f***in convenient eh ! King of all Pricks, anyhoo, f**k him and f**k Los blancos,.....


                      Alisson
         Trent Phillips Kabak Robbo
           Thiago. Fabinho. Gini
           Jota      Salah.   Mane.....

      I think we can go there and absolutely batter them, we owe them massively, and I think Jürgen will have them particularly fired up, their not what they once were but their name precedes them and some would crumble facing them, but not us, believe me, they are in for a rude awakening, they won’t cope with our intensity, they won’t like us in their faces, only one outcome for me.......

      They’re actually doing quite well this season, well in with a chance for another title.

      Their form isn’t bad either, not lost since January.

      Think they will show a bit more fight than Arsenal, still fancy our chances to come out on top, now that we are showing a bit of form. Maybe Jota starting instead of Bobby ?

      They are doing ok in a very sh*t La Liga year, the fact that Barcelona are only 1 point behind them with a game in hand is quite telling.

      I'm not saying we should underestimate them, they are still dangerous, but we have more than enough to beat them over 2 legs if we play like we have been the last few games.

      Looking forward to this more than I would have a month ago.

      Can see the clamour for Jota starting but think he could work equally well off the bench again. Gini will probably play instead of Milner.

      That carry on really detracts from their game, hopefully they will be penalised for their cheating.

      Think Jota is nailed on to start, he unpicks defences for fun.

      Really looking forward to this one, back four is pretty much nailed on, and then Klopp has got some options, would love to see Jota start, Keita in for milner, with Thiago and Fabinho, and front 3, Salah, Jota, Mane.

      Keeping Bobby in the starting lineup and bringing Jota in off the bench. He seems to excel doing that for us. Gini has to play this one so it's a pretty easy team to pick.

      Personally I would love to see all the front 4 start. Just take it them and pin them back with constant pressing.

      Without that thug Ramos i like our chances even better. While our CB pairing is young and inexperienced, it will help that the Bernabeu will be empty so they can focus on the game and not (potentially) rattled by the atmosphere.

      Good feeling we will get through to the semi's,we need to score first tonight and then the game will open up as i think Zidane will be happy with a 1-0 or 0-0 and fancy there chances of scoring in the second leg,would hate to go out on away goals.A good German ref tonight who won't take their diving and cheating,hopefully a lucky omen as he reffed our 2018 games against City 3-0 and Roma 5-2.Real have lost their last two games with Felix in charge.Can't wait for this game.COYR

      Can’t help but think Jürgen will have the boys fired up for this tonight, it’s our one and only chance of tin left this season and he won’t want to go 8 games without something to look forward to, there is the mini league for a top 4 finish but you don’t win any cups or medals finishing in 4th, that’s not a achievement, it may be for others but certainly not for us,

      Historically we owe these and Jürgen is not the type to forget the past, although he won’t admit it publicly he’ll want to exact some kind of revenge,and that will happen tonight when we absolutely batter these fuckers in their own back yard,

      I don’t watch much La Liga football but I doubt there are many teams in it that can match the intensity we operate with, and I can’t ever remember a Zidane X1 that parks any buses, for me it’s about who can dominate in the key areas, usually midfield, in Fabinho and Thiago we have two top players that can match anything they have, then it’s a toss up who plays with them Gini, Millie, Keita, Jones, I’d opt for Gini but I see the logic in Milner with his invaluable experience ,

      I’m confident  going there knowing we can dominate the game, and if we can get a early goal we could get 3 or 4, I’m not getting carried away here, I genuinely believe we can batter this lot, if we are on it and I think we will, they are in deep sh*t, and we are in the semi’s.

      We need Alisson, Kabak and Phillips on their best and our attack firing all cylinders. But I'm encouraged by our turn of form.

      Confident we can win this tonight. A similar performance to the away game v Leipzig.

      Mane, Jota, Salah front three should be to good for this Madrid defence without their leader Ramos.

                      Alisson
         Trent Phillips Kabak Robbo
           Thiago. Fabinho. Gini
           Jota      Salah.   Mane.....



      My team exactly.  This will be the first real test of Kabak and Phillips but, as Jürgen said, our defence starts with the front three.  I'd happily take a 2-2 back to (an elbeit empty) Anfield.  Impact subs?  Shaq is in good form, obvoiously Bobby is back and, much as I doubt him, it could be a good game for Keita - well, a good 20 minutes!   

      Lots of questions to be asked about the final against Bayern, but we'll worry about those when the time comes; which it will.

      Going in to this game feeling very optimistic and a complete 180 from how I felt only 4 weeks ago.

      How quickly things can change in football the turnaround in our performances and intensity has been huge largely down to a solid CB pairing, Fab back in his natural DM position, Trent back in form, and Jota firing on all cylinders immediately after coming back from injury. 

      Will be a tough game for sure but we're playing this lot at the right time now we have our hunger and desire back.

      No fear bring em on.

      Starting to feel the nerves now a bit going to be a pretty sleepless night and long wait to 5am.

      No Bobby no Party for mine he starts tomorrow night looked to have had his touch back against the Arse and did a lot of dog work which will be needed when you have a midfield of Modric and Kroos controlling the game.

      6 hours to go and the butterflies have started, even though I feel fairly confident, I also feel a tad nervous too, I don't trust these at all.

      I may be inclined to leave Jota on the bench and let him come on and scare the life out of them, bring him on on the hour mark and let him run wild.

      Just hope for a decent game and a strong Ref.

      Jota is a conundrum.

      Some say start him and drop Bobby

      Some say start him, with the other 3

      And others want him off the bench to repwat his previous feats off the bench.

      I think hes a better option off the bench then the other 3 but I woukd show rhese no respect tonight and Id start all 4 and go to stick the knife in early

      I’d be shocked if it isn’t...

                     Alisson
      Trent - Phillips - Kabak - Robbo
                      Fabinho
                  Gini  -  Thiago
           Salah  -  Jota  -  Mane


      That's what I'd go with.
      Would start Jota rather than Bob, he's just been the most clinical of our front guys so why leave on the bench.
      The middle is a bit defensive, could maybe start Jones instead of Thiago or Gini to get more creativity, but don't think he will - go with experience.
      Mane has looked decent in open play but poor taking chances - would be great if that changed tonite.

      MASSIVE game :)
      Love the CL matches when it gets to this stage, for me it's the best football you can watch bar none.
      Shouldn't underestimate these fucksticks, they have history in this comp, but so have we - and maybe our form is starting to take an upswing.
      Could REALLY be doing will staying in the CL - so CMON BOYS!!!!!!!!!

      Given the fact home advantage is negligible this year but away goals still count for more, I'm coming round to the idea of playing all four and just going for it tonight. Either way I think Jota has to start given his current form.

      The thing I've learned from this competition is that there are not many scorelines that kill a tie in the first leg!

      I think our recent record at empty Anfield only makes all the equations even trickier.

      I’m confident too, and honestly believe we’ll be too good for them, I do like the idea of Bobby being deeper but it’s something I think will need more time on the training paddock, i think Jürgen will go with Gini but wouldn’t rule out Milly, whoever plays RM will need to keep tabs on, I can see us winning by 3 and effectively booking our Semi final place.

      Some people massively underestimating Madrid here. Benzema is going to pull Phillips and Kabak all over the place. We're going to need Fabinho to have another stormer covering the spaces in front of them.

      One positive is that their defence will be relatively sh*te. I'd love to start Jota, but I can't see Klopp not starting Firmino for this one and there is no way he is not going with a midfield three of Fabinho, Wijnaldum and Thiago. Front three of Jota - Firmino - Salah? Most likely scenario is Jota starting on the bench again and coming on around the 65-70th minute mark to run riot.

      We could go for the jugular and try to stick the knife in tonight, but let's not forget we'd also run the risk of this tie being over tonight if we're a bit too adventurous, considering our recent record at Anfield...

      This is the RM of 2021 not the RM of 2018, those two side are a world apart and Benzema is past his best, we have more than enough at the back to cope with him and anyone else for that matter, they will be more worried about us than we are of them, and being without their resident thug Ramos is akin to us without Virgil,
      Only one winner for me and they don’t play in white !

      Unfortunately it's the 2021 version of Liverpool as well!  Difference between the two sides going into this game is that Madrid are in a title race.

      Think it will be tougher than we think - Arsenal game will still be in the legs on top of the travelling, gone for a score draw.
