      Imagine a world where Kieren Trippier is preferred to Trent A-A for his country.

      Any other country in the world would have Trent as their right back but England seem to want to side line him.

      Disgraceful.

      TAA is allowed to attack for us because we have cover.
      His absence from the England team is not about his ability.
      It’s an admission from Southgate that Maguire,Stones,Mings etc are nowhere near as good VVD or Matip in Defence

      Voted Sadio as MOTM as he was awesome despite the constant tripping, chopping, pushing, pulling, barging, wrestling of him for the whole half he played.

      Behind Utd & Everton, this is the team I most hate in football!  Constant tripping, pushing, etc., (see above to Sadio) as well as the diving and staying down in "agony".  A team full of sh##houses managed by the biggest c### in football.

      If ever 2 managers  mirrored their teams & vice-versa, its Klopp & Simeone.

      Thought Ox did okay and hopefully not seriously injured.

      Great to see Fab & Thiago back; they'll make a massive difference.

      Hope Firmino's injury wasn't as bad as his expression indicated!

      I love this club; keep our key players fit for most of the season, and we'll contend for the big trophies.

      COYR!!!

      That was a joy to watch. Pity we could not add another goal or 3 but the football was beautiful.

      Delighted for OX

      Another show from Tsimikas that has me impressed

      Thiago back on the pitch

      Mo, seriously

      Tough one Sunday but in this form you fancy us all day every day

      Hope Bobbys not a serious injury, only downside of the night.

      Atletico are dirt. Would love them to get done by Porto

      Well in redmen

      Ox looked pretty good. Many here have written him off but I see a guy that just lacks minutes to get into rhythm & swagger. The same for Origi: it's hard to be world class if you just play 30 serious minutes in 4 weeks.

      Kostas > Robbo. Period.

      Thiago should give us a break, else it would look dire in midfield (Keita, Milner, Jones all out).

      I hope from now on Jürgen treats CL stage like the League Cup and does not do bs like last year with Jota.

      Very good performance I felt last night. Handled the game well at 2-0 ... but once again squandered a host of chances. Hopefully saving some for Sunday as we will be 6 points behind Chelsea when we ko and nothing less than 3 points will do.

      Tsimikas played well again I thought ... Real competition for Robbo. Jota looked lively and great to have fab back as we just can't replace him. Thiago will hopefully start Sunday and help us to dominate posession.

      Superb assists by trent and 2 great goals. No risks in the last 2 games ... the league Cup team will suffice. We lost Jota for 3 months last season in a pointless game and it it helps knock athletico out them im even more for it.

      Finally , I hope that'd the last time we have to see that c**t play at anfield. Only diouf is a bigger c**t and I enjoyed giving him the send-off he deserved.

      Onto Sunday we go .....

      Could have easily been 4 or 5 nil.
      Delighted to see AM thumped. Used to have a soft sport for them but have become a squad of expensively assembled shithouses in recent years.

      Right decision to protect Mane and take him off at 1/2 time.

      Such a shame Miniamino's goal didn't stand and Jota's run... VAR really should be allowing the goal if the striker is off the shoulder of the last defender.

      Anyway. Onwards. Some much needed squad rotation now will do the players the world of good.

      Job done with two games to spare is something not use to seeing, like other have mention it provides opportunity for squad players and odd youth players some minutes while rest our top guns (hoping Klopp learns from Jota lesson from last season).

      Impressed with Tsimikas, this season he been very good every game he has featured in and though I don't expect him to displace Robbo has first choice any time soon but he should be featuring in more games. Curious to see if Klopp would be willing to try him at RB to cover TAA (though I doubt it).

      For me, last night showed how far we have come mentally. When we won CL and the league, it was a different team. We were just pure class, especially in attacking. However, what was different about last night was we are physically and mentally stronger. Athletico are a notoriously tough (even dirty) team, but we were superior in that front.

      Pure class.

      Added bonus:

      - seeing the despondent look on Simeone's face. I've never seen a cheap gangster look so broken
      - Trippier close to tears after being kicked all over the park
      - we are not reliant on Mo as so many "pundits" falsely claim

      YNWA.

      Another awful game from our opponents, thay were cynical again if that's the best Spain can offer we're streets ahead in football ability, and as for Klopp my admiration increase with every game, knew what Simone was up to, and at the game didn't snub him but made him look like the spoiled brat he is GET THE FUCK IN. Couldn't care if Porto beat us now at least it will make it more difficult for Athletico,

      Wouldn't go that far, hopefully Atletico miss out but I'd still rather we won our remaining 2 games. The more games you win, the more confidence and momentum it builds. We just need to concentrate on ourselves and topping the group with 6 wins from 6 should be the target, regardless of what is going on with the teams around us.

      Didn't expect it to be that comfortable. Super win. Hopefully Jürgen rotates a fair bit for the remaining CL games.
      Some great passes for the goals from TAA. And Fab back with Hendo is a solid base.
      Roll on WH, seem to be playing a strong side tonight.

      Just to add that last night was the most Virgil has looked like his old self since his return. Great to see.

      Yeah, thought that as well. Couple of moments where you could see he still had that ability to just ease opponents out of it with seemingly no effort.

      6 out of 6 points against that cheating, diving, moaning shower of sh*t Team. Hope they finish 4th in the group.

      Loved how our lads just controlled the game when that was what was needed, so many passes to each other just knocked he stuffing out of them.

      Top of The Group Baby!!!

      I think my brother told me that, he didn't even celebrate when he scored against Barcelona. But he did celebrate against us in the champions league. So yea, no sympathies for him.

      Don’t get the issue with players celebrating against their former clubs. We don’t have issue with it if we have a player score and celebrate against their former club so shouldn’t have issue with it when it happens to us. In fact it would irritate me a bit if we had a player not celebrate. Key part is “former”, obviously it’s a bit different if it’s a player that has spent 10 years at the club or whatever but Suarez was with us for about 3 years. Couldn’t care less if he celebrated or not, that goes for any player because the damage is done against us by scoring the goal, not doing a poxy celebration for 30 seconds.
