      Ali has been superb this season and his goal for me makes him player of the season and like Jürgen had to overcome adversity

      I can't look past Fabinho for player of the season, mate.

      We mustn't forget what he's done this season. He stepped up and became a top class CB for us. Without him, this CL place wouldn't have happened.

      Not sure its a debate

      Honourable mentions to

      Mo, for his goals

      Nat, had he been trusted more then maybe Fab would be under pressure for player of the year

      Ali, yes he was below par but consider what he went through, saves he made and that goal...actually I might be changing my own mind here

      I wouldnt argue with that but what  Ali has done and been through and has made so many saves that go unnoticed and then to top it all scores the f**king winner in the last minute its just bonkers.

      https://www.liverpoolfc.com/match/opta-stats/progress-chart#

      Its some achievement considering ,injuries VAR ,no fans 18 odd different pairings stress management every game it takes its toll. Just looked at Sky betting have us @13/2 for next seasons Premiership had a wee interest

      Fab has been awesome, he wanted so much to be here, he posted a vid travelling up to Lpool, with his girl/wife?,  and he has played that way since.
       He has taken up the slack, when the centre backs got injured, but we know how good he is at DM, time and again, he takes pressure off the central defenders.  If Thiago would have been with us from the start, then hands down, This guy is class, and it shows

      Champions League status is so important plus you can tell Klopp just loves being part of it.

      I hope FSG don’t tighten the purse strings - would be great to really build out this squad with more quality.

      I’m talking 3 or 4 top quality players.

      A season where Solskjaer, Dean Smith and "The Chosen One" were all having good years shows that there was something not right with this year. On top of the horrific injuries we had, we were never going to win this title so I don't see us having handed them anything. We were just paralysed by circumstances.

      Next season, things will return to normal.

      Correct as soon as we lost our back line it was over regardless that we were too of the league at the time  no team could have managed in those circumstances.

      We left it late but in the end the decision to bring Kebak into the fold helped to bring Fab back into midfield and for us to at least compete in the midfield again.

      Nat was our rock too giving us everything he had and even Rhys has stepped up in the run in to keep some clean sheets.

      Next season I'm not sure we can win the title because Virgil and Joe may not be back for all of it, and may need a long time to get back to peak fitness, but we have sufficient depth to make sure we aren't battling on the last day of the season  for CL qualification.

      Given the circumstances we did exceptionally well to finish a place below United who barely had an injury or a VAR call go against them all season.

      Well - he kept his promise.

      What a player Mohamed Salah is - so technical, so beautiful on the ball. We have a wonderful winger who genuinely is also a top notch leader. Was amazing today!

      Great way to bounce back, after mid season slump. Hopefully better luck injury wise next season, once again qualifying for the champions league. Onwards and upwards !

      Professional performance. The team has been playing better and better football and I think it's a true credit to Jürgen and the coaching staff who have never panicked and remained focused on training this team despite adverse circumstances. It also speaks to the teachability and footballing intelligence of the group recruited to play here.

      Credit to the center backs today for playing with heart and getting better game by game. No they are not Virgil and Joe but they were good enough to help us turn the season around, nervy moments or not.

      I don't think there is going to be a massive clearout. Gini is on his way but I think no more than 2-3 others will leave. I don't expect more than 2-3 incoming either. Jürgen is about training the group he has - it's how he's wired.

      I'm ready for four weeks off, but optimistic about next season. Keep the faith everyone!

      Wonderful end to the season

      Nat Phillips and Rhys Williams take a bow for the last few weeks, in fact Rhys you'd better only take half a bow as you're only a kid, you're probably not allowed to take a full one

      Shame he missed that header cos Rhys was great today, he's come on a bomb in a short space of time, a couple of months ago he'd get the ball off Nat, take a touch and then give it back again: safety first. Today his passing was blob on, including a couple of nice long rangers. At Old Trafford he played the pass of the game, 50 yards from LCB right onto Trent's toe on the right wing. Gets played into a wee bit of trouble by Alisson today and just rolls his man and plays a left foot pass to Robbo. Lovely to see. Great support from the fans today, clapping everything he did right, which was basically everything except put that header under the bar.

      Thiago: absolutely magnificent, even better than his recent performances which have all been MOTM-worthy or near enough.

      Some passages of football were extraordinary.

      Thiago played a pass first half from right midfield with the outside of his foot that started out down the middle of the 'fairway' and then sliced to the right and missed a defender by not much and landed just at Salah's feet. As passes go it was an absolute work of art. Honestly I don't even think even Gerrard could have pulled it off. One of the most outrageous passes I've seen from a player in any shirt never mind just ours.

      Second goal was ridiculous: Trent plays an outside of the foot pass to Thiago who plays an outside of the foot pass to Mo, who dances down the wing and then the ball finds its way to Sadio and bang and it's in the net but the 2 outside of the foot passes back-to-back were just sublime. If Thiago plays as the right-sided 8 next season and Hendo switches to the left, a right side of Trent Thiago and Mo is enough to strike terror into any opposition in world football.

      MOTM is tricky: hard not to go for Sadio but I won't as apart from the goals other players had better games, and I can't keep going for Thiago so I'm gonna just about go for Mo who absolutely ran his socks off and deserved a goal in this game, very very lively and his link-up play was good which isn't always the case, moves often break down when they get to Mo (not helped by defenders climbing all over him), but not today, almost flawless bar his late miss which was a real shame.

      Loved to hear the fans back in and the support for Gini was class even with only 10k in.

      Only sad note was seeing Gini leaving the club. I'm absolutely gutted. Lovely fella. He could have given it the biggun and said his favourite memory was Barcelona semi-final, but instead he says his favourite moments are just being part of this club, his teammates, manager, being at Melwood and Kirkby every day. Absolutely class. You'll never walk alone Gini lad. Always be a Red. Long and happy life to you. Come back and see us soon.

      Fantastic achievement to finish 3rd considering all the obstacles this season.

      We will be back next season fit, hungry, fans back, and a point to prove.

      its 98 or so points in a full season mate right back to our best in terms of getting results. It is a fantastic way to finish this season restoring the lads faith in each other and knowing we will have the best CB partnership in football back and raring to go.

      I have been looking at the roll we have been on and its been clear to me the lads had got back their focus and Jürgen deserves so much credit because he didnt change things too much and kept faith in his players. Who wouldnt want to play for a man like that.

      For sure. It will be interesting to see whether we pursue Konate this summer. If so it may suggest a lack of confidence in keeping that Gomez/VVD pairing together. It's a risk to put all the expectancy back on two central defenders coming back from serious injuries, particularly given that one (Gomez) seems particularly prone to them. In that sense signing Konate or someone similar makes sense. With Gini going, it will be interesting to see how they conduct business this summer.

      Talking to other fans ( they’re team don’t matter)Its hard to emphasise to them, losing the likes of Virgil alone was just catastrophic to the minds of our players.You just get the likes of “ we all have had injury problems”,but you have to be a “ Red” to “ understand “What we achieved in the end was “ humongest “ Next season, as sure as God made lttle green apples we’re there.Ynwa.( soz guy celebatery pissed ) 🙈😄

      Just so relieved and proud of the team for the way we’ve ended the season. Says a lot about the team’s mentality that we can see virtually all our hopes dashed but still find the mettle to finish 3rd. We were staring down the depressing barrel of Europa League football, or perhaps none at all, and the uncertainty of what that would mean for a team used to a seat at the top table but now we can look forward to having a reset and another chance to push for the league and CL.

      Yes there are some big lessons to be learned in this most unusual of seasons — perhaps none greater than we must never again find ourselves in such a predicament with our CBs — but at least we have the chance to address these problems from the position of being in Europe’s premier club competition, which is huge. A big well done to the players and manager👍

      I didn't get to watch the match, but I'm very intrigued by the MotM poll.  Usually a player scoring a pair of goals in a 2-0 win runs away with the vote, so I'm assuming Thiago must have been exceptional.
