    I'd take spurs fan gloating in front of my face anyday than Pool winning another CL.

    The 6 times will be unbearable.

    Keep the dream alive though!! Someone said you'd been 20mins from going out the whole way and it could be fate.
    And would be hilarious if pool destroy barcelona, then lose the final!!

    I'm pretty sure Spurs fans were not wearing flares in 1984. I can't be so sure about Liverpoo fans though.

    That's true. We were 12 minutes from going out against PSV in the 4th group stage match, 10 minutes away against Inter in the 5th match, 5 away against Barcelona in the final one.

    Confortable against Dortmund, 17 minutes away against City (and the VAR decision) and about 10 seconds away against Ajax.

    Even writing that has given me chest pain again.

    I guess Liverpool might feel the same though, they've been close to going out a few times too I think.

    Group stage? Don't think you really deserved to beat PSV but scored with two late ones, even then you needed them to do you a favour in the last game v Inter.

    We had 30 shots vs PSV and totally dominated the game, not sure how we didn't deserve to beat them.

    We also should never have lost vs Inter at home (absolute smash and grab job) and had a perfectly valid goal disallowed vs PSV in the first game which cost us 2 points.

    Inter getting through would have been a travesty. They fluked 3 points at home vs us and then did nothing.

    I've just been looking on RAWK and the enforced "group-think" on there about the CL final is truly astounding. No room for doubt or questioning is allowed - or at least not without being jumped on if the odd poster dares to break ranks.

    According to RAWK, Spurs have virtually no chance whatsoever of winning.

    The paranoia is typified by:

    * "This is how bad morale starts in any group - whether it's a football club or an army. A number of individuals start expressing black thoughts and sooner or later everyone is infected ...
    Liverpool are one of the most perfect football teams ever assembled. That's what should be on your mind - and your tongue."

    * "I'm not interested in how we can lose. We're not going to lose. Anybody who is expressing concerns about us losing, taking Spurs for granted, cautioning us against being over confident etc etc, is simply hedging their bets against the pain of us falling short again. ... I'm not predicting a scoreline, but I am predicting a victory. There is simply no other outcome for me".

    * ... there is actually no fecking way we are losing this one. No fecking way"

    Well, I would say to the poster of the last comment above, actually there are several ways in which Liverpool might lose. You might be favourites, but that is no guarantee of victory.

    The Romance that RAWK is enamoured with depends on near-success; in effect, failure. Klopp's recent remark about the journey being more important than the destination expressed this ironic truth: the essence of romance is poignancy rather than glory, despite appearances.
