    Wow, fella who sits next to me in the office entered a competition a while back on Zavvi. He won.

    2 tickets for the Champions League Final, flights, accommodation and £250 spending money. He's checked. It's legit. Lucky bastard

    He's not even a football fan but his wife is.

    Amazing video showing basically just the crowd from Tuesday night - the sheer noise. Trent walking around the pitch clapping the whole ground on his own, too.

    Alexander-Arnold grew about a foot in that 90 mins. Went from being a promising kid (albeit with ludicrous amounts of that promise) to being a leader, someone with a real connection with the fans you'd have no problem throwing into the biggest games imaginable.

    Kyle Walker or TAA for England? That's a pretty decent conundrum for Southgate to have.

    Fuck England. Couldn't give two shits.

    TAA is the next captain marvel for LFC that much is clear.

    The corner thing for the last goal was even more impressive in that it (apparently) wasn't pre-planned.

    Yeah, I think that was pretty clear by a) the fact TAA was initially walking away from it until he saw the opportunity* and b) Origi wasn't looking for it - you can see him almost do a double-take before it clicks what's going on. Which makes his strike all the more impressive, I think :cool:

    *you could say this was part of the theatre of a pre-planned move, but think that's a bit of a stretch, especially when you see Shaqiri's reaction too - he basically whips round to see where the fuck the ball's going.

    With current levels of shithousery winding its way through LFC. I wouldn't be surprised if the club put out a statement of 'The in wish to make it known that there will be no offer for Coutinho. He had his chance. A-ha-a-ha-ah-hahaha."

    With Klopp calling him a cunt, or something.

    (Also, spare a thought for Emre Can!)

    That is fucking gold...

    Only place that will have him is Utd and he will fit right in there.

    According to some Googlng quick maths, you can get 9 Mario Balotellis for on Phillipe Coutinho.

    This weekend is going to be a bit of let down isn't it? Can't see anything but a City win against Brighton despite the recent 'fashion' of teams winning against the odds :(

    City do deserve the PL title (again) Just been such a close competition :cool: and Liverpool not winning the league (if they beat Wolves which is not a given) with 97 points and only one game lost all season is cruel.

    So odd that mid-May we could be champions of Europe and/or England, or win nothing.

    For the runner up to get 97 points and not win is incredible.

    On one hand this is still a club in progress and top two in CL/PL is a massive result given the opposition.

    On the other hand if Liverpool end this season with nothing it will be hard to praise the progess :(

    Will be interesting to see if Liverpool can maintain and also what the follow 'big three' can do to close the gap next season :hmm:

    The transfer window (apart from Chelsea) across Europe is going to be hugely competitive. Barcelona, Real Madrid and Juventus are going to demand big change. They will spend big and also clear out a lot of players/managers.

    In the UK there is a lot of change ahead too. City will be buying and Utd will try to spend themselves back into the top five.

    Liverpool are (on paper) in a strong position given their squad, contract lengths and the age of their players. Still hard to hang on to the top talent when Barca etc come calling with their chequebooks in hand.

    The other thing that strengthen this is Klopp. Players will want to work with him and we have seen that in his signings already.

    Either/or would do for me now.

    My gut feeling is City will win the league and we'll beat Spurs but I've followed Liverpool for so long now the possibility of getting nothing at all seems really high.

    Innit :facepalm:

    There are no prizes for the 'great season' and amazing team progress is there :( just a lot of gloating cunts from clubs that are a long way behind Liverpool.

    As Salah wore 'Never Give Up' :cool:

    Jordan Henderson is set to become the fourth player to captain an English club in two Champions League Final:

    Emlyn Hughes (77’ 78’)
    John McGovern (79’ 80’)
    Steven Gerrard (05’ 07’)
    Jordan Henderson (18’ 19’)

    I've organised a film screening at the same time as the final. :facepalm:

    I don't support either Liverpool or Spurs but still.

    Even if Wolves get a scrappy draw, Citeh will steamroller a Brighton team with nothing to play for. Doesn't make a difference what happens as long as everyone comes through unscathed.

    I'd still rather win the League over the CL every time but just playing the odds, like.

    Always followed Brighton as my second team. Great club and Hughton is my shout for next England manager.
