    Its worked to our benefit, but the bit that gets me is he works for Sky Sports and doesnt know why the CL final is when it is.

    If he needed to know that it is booked not with an all English final in mind, and so has to come a week or so after the league season in Germany, Italy, Span, France, etc has finished in order to accommodate the potential finalists...

    ...Well he could literally have turned to his left and asked.

    The final is when it always is. As memory serves the EPL finished a bit early (could be mistaken) which will have compounded the issue of a gap.

    This doesn't end well does it?
    Is that kit to nick real tickets off people and give them the fake?

    When it goes wrong it won’t be his fault.

    Is there a European final they don’t cause an issue?

    I will give credit where it's due, Liverpool are a very good team. They got nowhere near top gear against us (some of that was our doing, we were pretty good in possession) but they still won and kept us at bay fairly comfortably in the end. Klopp has adapted their game this season to make them more solid (along with signing the right players). He's done an amazing job with them.

    And now they have 6 European Cups, which is as impressive as phuck.

    Plenty of well wishing from both sides on twitter.

    Many compliments from our fans out there that the scousers were first class before and after the game.

    Well done Liverpool.

    Poch and Klopp are aligned on some of the building blocks they believe are necessary to make a team and club successful.

    Our teams are on similar pathways, obviously they're just ahead of us on that path. BUT it looks like the right path.

    Fair points all of them. The unfortunate thing though, is that Liverpool overtook us on the path, and now we have to play catch up. Hopefully this can be rectified, to some extent at least, with a summer of actual rest for the team and some reinforcements bought in as well.

    They overtook us in terms of league positions but had the resources/clout in position long before us.

    Obviously helped by an incoming £130m as opposed to an £850m outgoing.

    Edit: oh and let's not underestimate that actually being ON the right path is a great thing.

    Yeah I hate them but they are very very impressive. They bought so well last year. Bought quality in the positions they were weak. Klopps done a phenomenal job and, with this as a springboard, I think they’ll be right up there for a while.

    We now need to brick or get off the pot by backing our manager the way they backed Klopp.

    City are still the best team but wouldn’t be surprised if Liverpool run them close again next season.

    I’d be happy if we get 80+ points, get back in the top 3 and hopefully win a trophy. Probably looking at least 95 points again to win the title.

    I imagine that's the Sun's fault too.
