    Sure, if you ignore the 3 or so clear cut chances Liverpool wasted in the first leg too.

    To borrow from Uli Hesse, City's success amounts to cold glory.

    What Liverpool are doing is the flesh and blood version.

    Maybe 2019/20 will be third time lucky for Valverde's 'collapse like a tent' strategy of closing out two-legged ties on the road.

    Funny how quick that narrative falls apart. And this is without the team leading the EPL contributing.

    Valverde should announce his resignation. You can go out in the CL SFs, but not in that way. Just embarrassing.

    Reading through all these joyous Pool comments makes me really wish Mike Ashley would [redacted to remain within site rules].

    You can rue all the chances missed in the first leg all you want but you come out and play like that you do not deserve to win. The chances were there in the first half and were poorly taken too. From cout to Alba to Suarez all failed.

    Coutinho was putrid over the two legs. Makes me smile.

    Suarez I have more empathy for because I love him and he gave everything for Liverpool (even if he's a ***** to play against).

    Eh? Only payed close attention to him in the first half, and he was brilliant then. Always got out under pressure and just had a few very high IQ plays. Was kind of in shock for most of the second half to really focuss on anyone in particular.

    Tough call, Liverpool's a lot better than Roma. So there's that , but Liverpool had to score 4, which is a bit harder to do obviously.

    Either way, something's gotta give in Barcelona. Two CL defeats like that... yeesh.

    Gives the ball away too easily, slower than molasses and offered very little. Busquets' season has been probably average at best. Whole match I was thinking that if we did go through I'd be happy if he started the Final on the bench. We need De Jong badly.
