      No - how could you forget nobhead above?

      Can you tell us all in your wisdom what the owners did that meant we lost the game last night ?


      Did they make TAA mess up the header ? Did they have the backline sitting high and the front three allowing Kroos all the time in the world ? Did they suddenly turn Alissons hands to jelly ?


      Did they force Klopp into picking Keita and Gini leaving Thiago on the bench ?


      Are you that blind or stupid that you can only see a fault with the owners and nothing else

      Watch that back. The entire game.
      Then ask yourself ?

      Can we play that bad again ?

      Are we lucky to still be in the tie ?

      2-0 required at Anfield that’s all


      We are going to have to score a lot more than 2 goals because there is no way in hell that that Real team don't score at Anfield against our makeshift defence. I think we can do it but we'll need our team to be in top form from the first minute and I'm just not that optimistic, sorry.

      BTW I totally agree with those calling for Robertson and Mane to be dropped, they have been sh*t for too long now. Give Tzimikas a go and play either Shaq or Bobby in Mane's place, another option might be to play Origi central supported by Jota and Salah, it might work if Origi makes enough of a nuisance of himself to create space for the other two.

      Hard to see us pulling back from 3  1 down tbh, especially the way the side are performing at home in the last few months. Without the Kop in full flow there seems to be no backbone to the team. I sincerely hope that they come out and prove me wrong.

      Not giving up on the tie yet but with the current circumstances it’s probably about the same odds for a comeback win than it was vs Barcelona.

      We are gash at home.
      We have a really out of sorts defence.
      Our midfield is constantly bypassed.
      Our forwards play like they have never met each other before.
      And no famous atmosphere.

      What I don’t get is why klopp persists with the high line when our centre backs are actually pretty slow.
      It takes just one pass to split us open.

      But the hope in me remembers that against Barcelona Shaqiri and origi shone.

      Who knows what’ll happen. We live in hope.

      Gonna take a huge turnaround in our form to go through now.
      Serious footballing hangover today :(
      Think we and Jürgen underestimated RM. Like, would he have started Keita if he thought RM would be so quick/sharp - think in trying to give us more "go forward" we lost control in the middle. But also made mistakes at the back and did very little up front - poor all round.
      Anyway, not gonna go over old ground, season hanging by a thread now.

      or simply why did Klopp pick Keita instead of Thiago??? Another f**k up by the manager, they are starting to accumulate a bit now.

      It was a total shambles, once again the nutcase manager got it wrong in his team selection of Keita instead of Thiago who was only introduced after the damage was done, by playing the negative tactic of holding a high line it has destroyed the team throughout this shitty season. The nutcase needs to walk! If he stays in charge for the next season, he will destroy LFC totally. This outing in the UCL might the last for LFC, I don't expect the club to qualify for seasons to come.
      There were a lot of shitty performances by many players last night, starting with Gini, Kabak, Trent, useless keeper who was at fault for the third goal, even Salah who was lucky to pounce on a rebound of Jota's shot, otherwise, he was a total sh*t.

      You still here.  :lmao: I must say even I'm surprised  :roll:

      I actually think your right, 2 goals probably not enough as Madrid do look good fo scoring atleast one at Anfield.

      So disappointing to watch that last night. After such a good effort against Arsenal on Saturday too.

      What we've got to keep reminding ourselves is that three man midfield of Kroos, Modric and Casimiro have won the Champions League three years on the bounce before we beat Tottenham.
      That same three, completely took the piss last night and we just stood back and allowed them space and time to dictate the play.

      Hindsight is a wonderful thing and I'm sure Jürgen is fuming inside this morning, as we all are, about the reasoning why and how he set up his starting midfield.

      Another mountain of a 2nd leg to overcome.. and this time in an empty Anfield.
      Two goals and clean sheet against this lot?....
      If we get straight at them and close them down quicker we'll give ourselves a chance.
      If we continue this slow build up play they will just soak it up and pick us off on the counter.

      It's not over til the fat lady sings !! ;D

      My opinion hasn't really changed. He's a beast of a player, holds the ball up very well too. His passing not the best but then he's a striker not midfielder. On last nites performance (( 90 mins )) you made some valid points about him being bit  lazy and not helping back when needed.

      With some managers they wouldn't like this so yeah you saying lazy valid point. Thing is his finishing more than makes up for his weaknesses. What I espically like about him is how he runs behind defenders, with his pace he can make a decent defender look quite poor such is his class.

      The frightening thing for me is that I don't think he's the finished article yet. With the right manager (( not Ole )) he can go on to be world class, arguable some think he's already at that level now.  On 90 mins football your opinion did have foundation.

      I think the reaction is way over the top for our centre backs

      Was scratching my head in amazement too. Think 12 months of Martyn Tyler has started rotting peoples brains.

      Far more concerning was the performance of the 8 European Champions on the pitch. First half the front three couldn't trap a bag of cement and the midfield had their deckchairs out.

      I’m not sure where all the consternation is coming from. I guess a couple years of success has deluded people.

      We got this, you have to believe just a little bit. Klopp will not make the same mistakes again and our boys will know what’s at stake.

      The tie is not over at halftime, but man, basically everyone who played yesterday needs to play better in the 2nd leg if we're going to win this. Other than maybe Kabak i don't think anyone had what you'd consider a good game.

      2 changes i think we need to see will be Thiago in midfield and Bobby at CF. If Klopp wants to go 4-2-3-1 then all front 4 can play, but if he goes 4-3-3 then i think Mane needs to make way for Bobby and Jota moves to the left. We need his pressing from the front and put pressure on their CB's and deep lying midfielder to cut their time to pass. We really missed that yesterday and got burned for the first goal as Jota didn't press Kroos at all before launching his pass to Vinicius. With proper press, he probably just makes a pass sideways instead of exploiting the gap between Trent and Nat.

      This doesn’t make sense because Tyler shags both Phillips and kabak over the smallest, basic things. They could play a five yard pass and you’ll hear Tyler say kabak did exceptionally well there. It’s embarrassing.

      Noticed you quite often put the blame on others rather than just discussing the blatantly obvious errors. Salah has won the European cup but it’s not his fault Phillips can’t deal with a straight long ball over the top or that kabak has no positional awareness.

      You were quite vocal about playing two natural centre halves alongside one another and when it went tits up, which it clearly did last night, you blame the other 8 players in the team.

      Scratching your head in amazement? Come on. Nobody played well last night and I’m not excusing the other 8, but the two cbs were all over the place so I don’t understand why you’re so amazed at their criticism.
