      2-0 is a decent result for us, it will force them to come play more. At 1-0 I would figure you see more of the same (deep defending) in the 2nd leg until later in the game.

      Seems like playing Mane and Salah closer on the pitch continues to results in more link up for goals. The way Salah used that space given to him in the middle when he got the ball was very clever.

      Not over yet, mature performance. Upped the tempo in the second half. Hendo bit fortunate but we had them rattled. Respected their attacking ability by not going all out for the third.

      Take nothing for granted, it will be tough over in Spain.

      Astonishing Villarreal is a semifinalist in this cup.
      So passive, so unimpressive....fitting of the 7th place team in Spain

      For a semi-final that was a superb performance.   They plug away all first half and they don't let their heads drop.  They have such faith in their ability and in the space of two minutes it's 2-0. 

      Whatever happens in the next month these lads have been incredible this year.

      exactly whatever they achieve they are giving us everything they have. 135 goals so far this season just off the scale

      To score another goal we needed to keep the intensity up which could have in turn affected our game against Newcastle in less than 3 days time. So I am quite content with the result.

      That’s a fantastic result and yeah a third goal would have been nice but we are still gunning on all fronts & still have a lot of pressure games to play  so for me the boss is juggling a lot of balls & taking the very coy and clever approach by playing the slowly slowly catchy monkey game.

      Fat lady hasn’t sung yet but she’s warming up the pipes. That second goal is huge because it really forces them to have to attack instead of patiently sitting waiting for the opportunity to counter.

      Given rule change re away goals the world and his wife knew they would play deep. They were given to much time to defend in the first half. Very often the way with this type of game.

      Very mature performance in the end. Thiago, Robbo, Konate played well but a word for Mo, he looked more confident and could been in 2/3 times in second half.

      Total dominance. First half they defended well but having persisted in a similar fashion to the derby game we eventually got the breakthrough. If you keep doing the right things against park-the-submarine teams you will ultimately sink the f*cker!

      Great result against a pretty negative side. Think we’ll have enough to go through. Gonna be tougher at their place but I think we’re just too good for them.

      Also, I wish everyone would stop talking sbout us going for the quad. It’s not even in our hands. I think we’ll win our remaining prem games and I do think we’ll do it. But we have to be reliant on shitty slipping up. These pundits talk like it’s our to win and no one else is involved.

      Yes, that was my reading of it.  They could still be cagey first half over there with it being 2-0 but if its still that way at half time then they can't mess about.

      Hopefully we score first over there as well but you know, that's not how we do these things!! Fully expecting it to be a mission!
