    Get any jip off them, ask them where they grew up, and why they aren't supporting Billericay Town.

    There is a tiny chance we might beat them, in which case none of them will ever talk to you again.

    Great call. They probably would have gotten a fifth if needed.

    Yeah but the two replacements had the game of their lives. Our squad players haven't got that level in them. We need some serious investment in the squad.
    Bad result for us, if we do somehow pull it off tomorrow I fancied us against Barca , not so sure about the scousers, they are looking even better than City right now.

    I’ve given Pep a lot of brick for never winning a CL without Messi, but has Messi won one without Xavi?

    This really annoys me. Time wasting never gets punished. Van Dyke injury and then the stoppage after that plus all the substitutions should surely have meant at least 7-8 minutes extra.
    And then the ref blows up early despite stoppages in injury time.
    This needs to be looked at, incredibly frustrating if it's your team that's chasing the game.

    Kind of backwards, but not totally illogical.

    Of course we want to win tomorrow and beat Liverpool in the final. But if we beat Ajax and then lose to Liverpool, it's not unreasonable to take the view that losing tomorrow would have been a less unpleasant result. This is not the same as wanting to lose to Ajax, just a ranking of possible outcomes at the end of the season. I can see why people would rank the last two differently and why hindsight could change it.

    1. Beat Ajax and Liverpool ( I think we would all agree this is the best set of results .. even here :rolleyes:).

    2 (or 3). Beat Ajax and lose to Liverpool (the opportunity is worth the pain)

    3 (or 2). Lose to Ajax (and avoid the pain of a final loss).

    Yeah it does look like that but then if we pull it off tomorrow after the incredible tie against City and the great escape out of the group, then wouldn't it feel like our name was on the trophy ?

    Fair point.

    One thing Liverpool have no shortage of is belief. Some might call it delusion but they think they are going to win everything and it drives them on. I'm not sure our guys have that, unfortunately.

    I disagree but in your defence we did give Liverpool two very close games both of which could and should have been draws.
    Just feel like they are getting better and better.

    ...and we have, in general, been going in the opposite direction for a couple of months now.

    Coutinho is about to have the biggest fall from grace ever witnessed. Liverpool did well to lose their best player and immediately improve.

    Still, it's a one off game. I'll reserve my final judgment until after tomorrow night, and no matter what, we will do better than Barca did today if we go through. Hell, Cardiff would have given it more a go.

    A great and gutsy performance and a ‘triffic result. But I’m having trouble finding the articles saying that it’s all well and good doing what ‘Pool just did but they need to win a trophy for it to be successful. You know, like the ones written about us all the time.
