    What an embarrassing performance.

    • Gave away the tie. It was like having a winning lottery ticket and giving it to the first person you encounter on the street.
    • Valverde should be fired tomorrow. To have the team come out like that at the start and in the second half with absolutely no clue how to attempt to come back. Who has everybody standing at the edge of the area waiting for the ball? Especially players who aren't suited for that sort of role.
    • Disgraceful from the players. You had the weekend off and can't put in the shift? Busquets and Rakitic can both go.
    • Ref could have had the injury time right and it wouldn't have mattered.

    Congratulations Liverpool.

    Dembele miss hurts, but Salah also missed a sitter in the first leg.

    Overall Liverpool were a significantly better side over the course of two legs.

    Hate to be sappy but I've got tears in my eyes watching the team sing YNWA with the crowd here.

    That Dembele miss at the end... Didn't think it would have mattered that much.

    Special night, special crowd.

    They are indeed. But in a CL-final you expect to face one of the giants. If you don't then you will be very sorry not taking the chance and win the damn thing.

    But English teams are inferior to the European elites.

    No idea why they extended Valverde without waiting out to how the season finished.

    Liverpool played great and deserved it.

    Alba played like ****ing garabge.

    Barcelona proved that. Where's Real Madrid?

    Yeah, because I've done something like that ever. You're a classless clown. Ditto for you @Evilo.

    24 hours ago it was a terrible feeling after that Kompany goal.

    What a ridiculous game. Can't even believe this is real. I figured we were going to come up with nothing after watching that Kompany goal yesterday.

    Could we just have a nice thing (this Liverpool win) and not turn it into an EPL vs. other leagues fest? Thanks.

    You know, I started out rooting for Barca... 20 minutes later and 4 Suarez flops, 2-in-the-ref's face Suarez specials... I was rooting for Liverpool.

    I feel a bit for Lovren who lost his spot to Matip after his injury, but there's no shame in that, Matip has been absolutely lights out, including tonight.

    Those 2 Dembele **** ups in the 1st leg

    Barca could have won that game 5-0

    Best LB in the world caused 2 goals today. Best keeper in the world could've done better on the 2nd goal. Plenty of blame to go around. Vv with his professional tactics can kick rocks. He's done there's no coming back from another choke job.

    This is easily one of the most frustrating losses as a barca fan. They’re NO EXCUSES for losing this tie. 3-goal lead, no away goals given up and Pool is missing their top striker. Nothing about this says we should’ve lost but whaddaya know, Barca comes out playing like a much of dead men walking on the field and playing not too lose, rather than going for the kill.

    Alba wasn't good, but I wouldn't lay this at his feet. He's had a tremendous season including an excellent first leg. Busquets on the other hand did nothing.
