Into the semis, Barca out. Don't think anyone will fancy coming up against us.
I've just text my lad to make sure he doesn't give Coutino his mums spare BT on line log in as I've begone to enjoy getting it for free
Yeah really lucky result that over the two legs. 5-1 against the premierships best team.
That Roma result.
Was fearing the worst after the first two minutes but we defended very well and got the two goals. You’d be wanting Roma in the semis but they can beat anyone on their day too so remains to be seen. All in all very impressed with that YNWA!
I meant tonight they were lucky. That city goal wasn't offside for example. If they'd gone in 2-0 at HT it could have been very different
I've had a drink, but I have to say:
Three (and a bit) years ago, it was Brendon Rodgers, Iago Aspas, and Rickie Lambert.
Now we've got Salah, Firminho, and Klopp. It's been 10 years since we've got to a semii-final of the Champions League.
It's fucking joyous, we might still end up without anything, we've come so fat.
Aye really lucky. As we say round here...If your Aunty was a man she'd be your Uncle.
Speaking of Aspas, third best striker in La Liga this season. Came to us off the back of stellar performances too. No idea what happened to the lad on Merseyside, but clearly he's a top player.
The commentary in this is sensational!
But they still let in 5 goals.
Yes I did notice that
Good win away Salah quieter than usual but great goal when it mattered. Great team performance at the back too!
Barcelona going out was a massive shock! Would love it if Juventus pulled off a miracle at Madrid later
9-9 over 4 games against City this season
The semi-final draw takes place at midday on Friday. Not even sure who I would prefer to see LFC drawn against
Can't see them beating Bayern tonight. That said there was no way Roma were going to win last night
Putting the strikers aside for a change. Klopp has done great things with this squad.
I did not agree with his support of Lovren. He is still a bit inconsistent but really seems to rise to big occasions.
Milner and Chaimberlain are real grafters. Milner especially given he is 32 and has been playing in/out of position. Henderson is much maligned but his stats tell a different story.
Alexander-Arnold and Robertson are setting themselves up for world class careers already. Lots of people said that 75m for VVD was too much but his lack of criticism speaks volumes.
Plus Karius seems to be securing his place as #1 keeper.
Tbf both of those are about to get league winner's medals
I think part of Lovren's success, if you can even call it that, is his need to have a solid partner. Chopping and changing his partner hasn't helped him. If his partner is confident, he is confident.
Which says a lot about Virgil, he has quietly been incredibly consistent. I think because we expect it from him, it's gone unnoticed.
And agree about Karius, he clearly just needed a solid run in the team, he's looking more secure as each game goes by, although there was a few flaps last night.
Plus he's a good looking lad.
Mickey Mouse leagues
We have some really impressive managers in the PL right now. People like Mourino are a decade out of touch.
Lovren is (now) a solid player and (for me) a first team pick. Some of that is down to VVD but there are plenty of other players that could improve alongside a player of that strength.

You build a squad around what you have and grow from there. Buying a Pogba and selling shirt's to kids is not building a squad.
He is a boy band in waiting
He's friends with Justin Bieber, which is disappointing.
I don't give a fuck about Justin. Or his friends. Or what is classed as friendship in that world.
The first gig I went to was Lonnie Donegan but I don't bang on about the Cumberland Gap FFS
