      I agree. But what has this to do with you being a c*nt? This is about tactical incompetence from Jürgen. In the past he had Buvac, now he only has Yes-Sayer Pep, not good enough and worrying. We need to fix this defense asap. We struggle against decent teams.

      What did Klopp win with Buvac at their time together at Anfield..?

      What has Klopp won with Pep st Anfield..?

      We made 3 changes at team back, no Trent, Virgil or Robbo, these changes contributed to the unfamiliar mistakes at the back.

      we will have to improve and guess what we always do when needed. The way Jürgen managed his squad today is just superb whilst City had an epic violent struggle our lads had a fairly easy game tonight.

      Honestly, I wonder do some actually compute that the amount of changes won't have a little effect on performance. Always in control of the game. Don't know what the crying is about. Decent game and good little warm up for the weekend!!

      it is his normal stuff best not to engage really. FA Cup semi final Sat then UTD and Everton at home heady days at Anfield before the Semi final of the CL how good does it have to be for some people not to post crap mate.

      No point moaning I think that result was always on the cards with the team we put out.

      For large parts we dominated and passed it well. On occasions we got caught out too easily but that's not a defence that usually plays together.

      Was a gamble to do it but was there really a choice? Another big game on Saturday and we now go into that with fresher players than City.

      On we go.

      A bit slack at the end but result never really in doubt. Rotated the squad, no injuries, job done. Bobby's goals were well taken. Every time you think he might be a bit past hit up he pops with impeccable timing and moments of class. Love the fella. That Nunez fella looks handy for them although also looks a bit of a c*nt 😄

      Team was good enough to get through Klopp knew that . Seriously what would people want play full strength and win 3-0 ? We would still be in the semi without the obvious fact a good amount of rest for 7 starters Saturday

      The two big things is we are through to the semi-finals of the UCL and no was picked up injury in the process. Yes giving up those two late goals kinda put a damper in what was a decent showing from our second string side.

      Nice to see Firmino bag a couple goals and show some fox in the box instinct and all of the front three had some very strong periods of play during the game.

      Surprised Klopp decided to bring on Fabinho, Thiago and Mane in the second half. Salah made sense as try to see if he can find his form but figured if you could give some of the guys a night off he would.

      Got it. It was (almost) before my time.  :)

      It's funny, in French, it was already called the 'Cup of champions clubs'.

      Thoroughly enjoyed the game gave a few a run out ,I`d moan about losing 5 goals to them over the peice  but I think they earned it so its well done them ,going to be an interesting couple of weeks , many of the  boys are rested Jürgen will have sorted a few issues after last week so we are good to go. made Kosta MOTM everytime I see him he just gets better and better as for Bobby love the guy he just goes again and again nothing upsets him great player great mind set 110% everytime .

      Don't know what the crying is about.

      Qualify for the Champions League semi-final.  People upset we didn't do it by winning 10-0 on aggregate.  You've got to laugh!
