    Who's going to take Liverpool's place in the league now they've been "destroyed"? :confused: :(

    Sad day for you lads. It's been a good run, but I guess it was always going to end one day. I guess you've still got Everton and the Manchester clubs if you still want to support a local team :)

    That's quite some support in the away end, we must have been allocated some extra seats?
    The attendance itself was pretty good, 45,500, on a Wed night, Lge Cup and live on telly. I know it's Lpool v Chelsea but still impressive.

    Great game, some crazy misses but what a goal.

    Clubs have to give a bigger allocation for cup games, it's a percentage worked out on the whole capacity.

    I weren't sure they still did that.
    I do remember going to Old Trafford though with 9,000 Chelsea in a League Cup Semi.
    Robben scored a last minute winner from one of those crosses that land in the net. Superb.

    Sorry for the derail Lpool fans but it was Man U we beat so that's gotta cheer you up.

    You get the full lower Anfield Road end in a cup game if you can use the allocation, it's always been like that and as much as I hate to say it your lot were in good song and numbers for a midweek game :thumbs: Still cunts mind especially the one who ran on the pitch at a fucking EFL game:rolleyes::facepalm:

    We always have a good turnout for cup games though because the tourists and reduced price kids tickets, so you can take your bairns and still pay the mortgage, fill the gaps the season ticket holders leave if they don't enter the auto cup scheme at the beginning of the season. I was surrounded by little people and overseas visitors with sexy armbands and shopping bags last night. There's also an increase in gobshites though reliving the 2005 CL semi shouting abuse and gesticulating like they're at home watching it on the telly after 10 cans of artois. That's always entertaining for the children though I suppose:rolleyes:

    I ended up asking a bloke in front of me if it was his first time at the match and pointed out that "You don't need to stand up for throw-ins mate, just close shaves and goals" :D

    I do find it more of a satisfying anthropological experience these days than a pleasing football fix on nights like last night :D

    I think I'm probably more terraced than top tier though.:)

    Love it friedaweed

    I had some tourists in front of me in the Shed Upper one year, after 10 minutes I said to him "the pitch is that way mate":D

    I love it up there. Proper tactical full view of the pitch without moving head and able to see where everyone is and point out the pockets of space and like you say be able to see what’s about to happen in your head and then see it play out in reality seconds later.

    At Camp Nou and the Bernabéu, especially the former, you can only watch the tactics in the top tier and nothing else, you can't make out the players' faces from that distance.

    Yeah it was interesting for that. You can see so much more when you're higher up but the atmosphere is totally lacking for me. I'm just a kopite at heart. I very seldomly watch the game from outside of the kop. Anyway you can't moan about free tickets especially when they cost as much as they should of. I've been offered a few games in those seats this season so I can't moan. I'll try and swap them instead :D

    I did wonder why people didn't take binoculars :hmm::D

    Isn't it more hipster to be an Upper Anny fan? You have the "banter" (i.e. cup of shit) with the visiting fans and such? I was on an LFC forum that made a case for it - but when I've been to Anfield it's usually been in the Upper Cemetery.

    Anfield Road is shocking. There’s a bit of banter but the problem is it’s like watching the game through a letter box and the seats are uncomfortable. After that dalglish stand is just as bad for comfort and has no atmosphere what so ever.

    The new main stand has been ok the two times I’ve been in it. Been more on the side of the Anfield Road end so closer to away fans and you get that bit of banter but for both times I went there was plenty of singing.

    Can’t beat the kop however especially if you can get in the hallowed block 305. At one point I was lucky enough to always get tickets in x05 which spoiled me that to the point I wouldn’t go anymore unless I was up there.

    Now I’ve been in the main stand a couple of times I’m happy to sit in there too. Mate had some spares for Anny road against Southampton. While I didn’t want to come across as a snob I just said I couldn’t make it and had other plans! It’s really not worth the money, let alone the travel, feeding yourself etc etc to end up barely being able to see what’s going on.

    Sounds like you wouldn't enjoy Rayo much. Stand wobbling to the point of dangerous, seats painful and covered in birdshit. Good atmosphere though.

    Very apprehensive about today. Klopp is doing a brilliant job but I think we've been a little lucky to have a 100% record for as long as this.
    I would definitely take a point today.

    Well then. :)

    Would have said the same before the game. OTOH. We weren't really all there, especially up front. It took a Sturridge moment to level a tie where the score could have been Chelsea 3 - Liverpool 4 at that stage, had key incidents panned out differently.

    In other words, I think we could have been a lot more clinical and probably had more clear chances than Chelsea. Whereas I felt Chelsea were more playing at or near their best.

    That said we could easily have lost deep into overtime without that being a great crime.

    That's like thinking you're more Everton because you're in the Park End venting your spleen every week mate.:facepalm:

    Missed the game (all the games) yesterday. Shame to have lost the wining run but a point away at Chelsea is not a bad result.

    A bugbear of mine, that, too.

    Ugh. The first proper stinker of a match for a while, but you could say it was coming. Stale and sloppy. Gomez, VVD and Allison are the only players coming out of that with any kind of dignity.

    I think our results have flattered slightly - only slightly but not surprised at an away defeat in Naples.

    Could have been more tbh. I think the Chelsea game took a bit out of the players .
