      A fairly straight forward win albeit after giving them too many chances. Defence really looked like they'd met for the first time in the tunnel  :D Thought young master Morton looked unfazed by the occasion and he'll hopefully go on to have a brilliant career at Anfield.

      Thought Thiago was taking the piss at times he is really getting into his game now.

      He did during his run at the end of last season too. Hope he stays fit because he’s just amazing

      Apparently no English team has ever finished the group stages with a 100% record.
      May as well break another record

      Thiago easily MOTM, that thunderbolt never touched the ground, had spin and swerve ...unbelievable strike ,Minamino never stopped running all game , Ox decent, Konate had my bum twitching at times but we came through !

      Good night. Easy win, if a bit nervy in 1st half. Wonder strike from Thiago and even better he got through it with no injury…

      Another good result, with a clean sheet, especially with the group stage already comfortably won.

      Who wouldn't want to play football for Jürgen Klopp eh, how genuinely thrilled was he for Tyler Morton tonight and the rest of the lads, hugs all round and he knows how much it means to them and the fans too.

      Made up for Thiago, what a cracking 'Gerrardesque' goal that was, amazing !!

      We march on, AC Milan next - no danger, be nice to win there as well, great record to have.

      I know it’s early yet, but I can’t be the only one to think that we are looking very very good, we are it seems at the end of another injury crisis with key players returning and others finally reaching their peaks after injury, Ox for example getting back to somewhere near where he was before that injury, Thiago, Hendo, Milner, Fabinho, Robbo too, only Bobby,Curtis Naby & Wee Harvey still in recovery, and we can now add the impressive Tyler Morton, only inexperience will stand in his way,

      So looking at the fixtures ahead and that mad period taking us through to January I can see us being at the peak of our powers exactly when we will need it, yes we may lose Mo & Mane for a few at the Afcon, but we do have the tools to cover, Taki & Div have looked sharp and again  a run of games for them will see us benefit when it matters, Jota will be pivotal so we will need to keep him fit,

      This is a three horse race we are in, 4 off the top from a club already in good form, but how long can the keep that up ? Chavs will hit that brick wall at some point, and we’ve seen with City previously that they succumbe to pressure too readily,

      If I’m right, and we hit our optimum at the perfect time, I can see us moving ahead of those two, we remember pissed this league by a 25point margin over City in 19/20, we are better this time round with more experience, this time we have Chavs to contend with, but we’ve done it, they haven’t so that’s massive in a tight fight for the title,

      I might be getting ahead of myself here but I’m looking at the bigger picture, you can’t deny it’s a three horse race, and out of that three you could argue we are the best equipped, after missing out last season in such devastating circumstances, our celebrations curtailed due to Covid in 19/20, not having that street parade/party, no proper presentation with a full house, all of this to me means our players will want it that bit more than that other lot, that’s what will give us a edge, first title in 30 years and we couldn’t celebrate properly, that sticks in your throat, and that’s what our players will want more than anything else, and what’s the best way to rectify all of that ? ……



      ….. DO THE DOUBLE !!!

      Missed the game in the end, but saw the goals, what a cracker from Thaigo :) Mane very unlucky. And the usual one chipped in from Mo.
      5 wins out of 5, in the group of death. Brilliant from the lads/Jürgen.
      And like folks have said, some players got a bit of a rest, and others coming back from injury.
      Looking positive right now :)

      Saw bits of the Man City/PSG game, much the better side, Messi imho was a disgrace strolling about, made Ronaldo look like a duracel bunny, and the money he's on.

      Gonna be some race between us, Citeh and Chavs, in the PL and the CL...

      I missed the game so I can only say what I think based on the 5 minute highlights I've seen.

      Firstly it's great that we got yet another win, just need that one final game and it would be a flawless result in what was by far the toughest group. Brilliant strike by Thiago, they don't come much sweeter than that when striking the ball. Shame he was denied an assist too for what looked like another pathetic offside call to rule out the Mane goal.

      Mo, a really well taken goal too.

      Was great that Morton started, didn't really see anything of him on the highlights apart from a well timed interception but I gather he played well?

      Looks like we again gave away too many chances and got away with it on multiple occassions, had we been playing a better team then we'd have likely been punished. Looks like Konate struggled and Ox gave the ball away cheaply muliple times when he should have passed and put us in a bit of trouble?

      Other than that, I didn't really see much so it's hard for me to give a fair opinion based on the entire performance.

      Yea, I’m waiting for that “warning sign, we will have to watch out, it’s trouble coming soon, we need to buy and yet we didn’t buy, the kids ain’t good enough” post.

      I can see young Morton getting more and more game time, learning from one of the best holding MF in the world.

      Yea, last night was great for Morton. One thing is the Carabao Cup at Preson, a complete other is the CL at a packed Anfield and he got to play 60 minutes alongside world class Thiago, 30 minutes with Hendo and 20 with Fabinho. A learning experience for a young midfielder can't get better than that.

      Quote from glennusmc
      Sometimes I like referee human error in offside calls, that was beyond tight.

      If our future in the competition depended on that decision, I wouldn't like it to be decided by human error. I thought it was tight on first viewing, and when you see the lines, the final decision was correct.

      28 posts post match, doesn't do justice to the team, or the win, or the wonderful strike by Thiago, or setting a new club record in goals scored in consecutive games, or the new record set in points won in the group.

      We can now head to the last game looking to set another record, and become the first EPL side to win every game in a group. Maybe Salah will finally get the captaincy, or even Kelleher will get the chance to decide who goes through with us into the draw for the next round.

      It sticks in the throat of those who can go to see the party. For those of us like me who can't, I can think of many notable issues at this club during the 30 years that really stick in our throats more than not having a street party.

      That and the fact that you can't have any street party in my neck of the woods, (for fear of the h&s heads going mental in case  someone may fall over in front of the bus) probably means not having it is less of an issue for me, than seeing the title of "LFC CHAMPIONS" for the following 12 months.

      Care to explain how it’s right when


      1. The line on Mane was on his arm which you can’t score from not his foot


      2. The line on the Porto player was in the middle of his foot and not on the end


      Putting the line on the first part of Manes body that can score - his foot and on the Porto players foot properly would have made Mane onside
