      Four wins to our three.

      I wouldn't say they have our number.

      wasnt it 2 under Brendan and one when they assaulted our best player in the final I dont have a problem facing them or anyone else nobody wants to come to Anfield

      What's the point? There's no certainty about any travel atm, let alone in 2 or 3 months time. Basically, when you're not playing at home on the day, this is a tv tournament for most people.

      For armchair fans obviously, but how about our away numbers who went to all three away games?

      The pre klopp years minus the little oasis Rafa brought has left a big scar mentally. People still have that bit of fear dont they.

      We should know by now this team need fear nobody at any time or place. This team is elite. Opponents will always fear us more then we fear them.

      Yes inter will be no walk in the park. A good side and a huge history, with history comes pride and with pride comes fight. Im expecting it to be tough over both legs. And I expect to be in the quarters all the better for it

      We know. But there are always buts:

      1) fear of our players not turning up which could potentially result in losing in games like West Ham.
      2) distrust or no confidence in our players that they would show up against branded team.
      3) fear of losing and looking for better odds on winning - playing a team with a not so illustrious history is more welcomed and gives us an easier chance of winning at least on paper.
      4) too much respect for the opponent which has earned a reputation as a big team. Fear that they’d turn up and we’ll be trashed.

      In short we hate losing and will find ways to “improve” our chances of winning (including suggesting adding other team’s players to our squad) even though we have totally no control of who we will face. It feels better to just say “I’d have preferred to play [an unknown club of your choice]”. We know it doesn’t change anything. But the posts will continue to appear in the next round, in the following seasons…

      It’s a natural human expression and release of emotions.
