    Not all luck tho Scousers defended properly. Both goals came from errors not luck. Before the alleged handball Trippier is all over the gaff (again) second goal was a 2/3 errors not clearing our lines.

    It’s always the difference in big games. And our manager went with his heart over his head and played Kane . Poor choice he was awful tonight. VVD handled him easily.

    Agree re tonight. I was commenting more generally on a season in which we’ve lost 20 games.

    I think the biggest thing we learned tonight, and probably over the season, is that Harry shouldn’t walk straight back into the team after injury and that he needs serious back up. We need to change that mindset imo.

    Ottawa, actually.
    I did. We played well - couldn't finish, but played well.

    For all his positives this season I still think we need a Sissoko upgrade - he’s very limited.

    Agree on first 2. Last one we have Son then Moura. Will do well to top them on Spurs money.

    Poch needs to take a look in the mirror though for starting Kane, every time with zero exceptions when Kane comes back from his ankle he plays like a statue for the first two to three games before starting to regain his form, he would have been better off the bench coming on instead of Llorente, the hoof ball to him was never going to work against the Liverpool defence.

    It’s just so frustrating because I’m so proud of the lads for getting there and then this.

    We played sideways and backwards. We were brick and that is the type of performance we have showed alot this season.

    If I get anymore YNWA texts I’ll scream.

    As I recall Karius was very much left to walk alone last season. Bindipping clams.

    Liverpool were equally poor offensively. But they got their goals from the penalty and the only half decent chance they had. Can't say the win was undeserved, but margins are small and had we not conceeded that penalty I believe this game would've panned out very differently.

    Such a shame the bloody first thing to happen was that pen - which, I'm certain, wouldn’t have happened to every team. If it was Van Dijk and not Sissoko? Well...I'm not 400% sure that it would've been a pen.

    Lucky start for Pool, but we were toothless from there. There was plenty time to get that goal to change everything, but we never looked very threatening. That's disappointing. Kane, Dele, Son, Eriksen - we didn't look like we had that quartet up front at all. Salad, Mane and Firminho looked equally poor, but they had that goal. We looked clueless up front with four players who should be able to create a havoc for any defence.

    That, I think, is the disappointmemt. We never threatened them at all.

    I hope you’re right Dubai. The only thing that can cheer me up now is a season of Bale smashing them in from improbable angles, pulling love heart celebrations left, right and centre

    If the ball hadn't hit his hand after hitting his arm pit then it wouldn't have been a pen. We were fudging shocking, thats why we lost.

    I agree on Kane, I said similar in his thread a few weeks back.

    I’m not proud of them after that, it undoes the work in previous rounds, and now that I’m in a negative mood I’m thinking the CL run just papered over a pretty bricky league campaign.

    I won’t look back on this season as any kind of success.

    Margins, mate. We're unlucky not win it. Must've won the xg. Pen is correct, but the rules are bent.

    I have to say this .. you're right Vertongen and Aldervereld as well have been great this season but I think we needed another class defender who could come in and give them a rest occasionally.

    To slate Harry Kane or the decision to play him is wrong imho. He is our best player and the one most likely to make things happen. The major problem was he was well shackled by VVD and the players around him were poor. Disappointed Lamela didn't come on. Guess Sissoko's injury put paid to that.

    I can’t see how these new hand ball rules improve the game at all. Getting stricter next season too.

    I was actually thinking it might be a good thing, puts the pressure on them having something to defend and we would surely feel aggrieved and respond.

    What a fudging idiot I am.

    I'm adding Sissoko to the list but will leave nominations open until tomorrow to give the people who went to the game a chance to have their say.
