I mean I'm 27. The only trophy i ever saw them win was the CL. Though I see why a lot of older United fans hate Liverpool. Hard to hate a team that had not much success when United were cleaning up the trophies in my days
Don’t think we’ve conceded a counter attack goal all season. It’s an area we’ve improved in massively and is certainly true for the league
Liverpool/Arsenal/West Ham/Chelsea/Ajax vs Spurs/United/City/Everton/Barcelona/Bayern/Milan
Sane's goal against you'se.
I have not been following Liverpool games much but I do know that Spurs should have scored from a counter against you guys the last time you met.
At that point, Spurs would have ended Liverpool title dream, but because of good defending and poor finishing that didn’t happen.
I don’t think they would. As you mentioned, lack of match fitness. However, I feel his hold up play will be ideal to combat Klopp pressing moreso than Llorente or Moura or Son.
Take the blue print of how we beat them comfortably last year at OT. Exploit the space between the FB and CB with a long ball from the back.
Congratulations to Liverpool on reaching the Final. What a comeback that was on Tuesday night. That team showed fight, determination, passion and belief. Fully deserved to go through, as the result of the first leg didn’t reflect the balance of the game. Overall Liverpool were a far better team than Barça and they mopped the floor with us in the second leg. Without Salah and Firmino, playing after a difficult away game to Newcastle against a team that has had plenty of time to rest, and they do this. Just fantastic.
I wanted Ajax to win the Champions League if Barça couldn’t, but now I’m hoping Liverpool get the trophy. What they did this season is too good to go trophyless.
You need to post this in RAWK
How are there restricted view seats in a newly built stadium like Atlético's?
The prices are sick, and I feel for the fans who have the opportunity to go the final but can't because of monetary issues.
Also read that Baku stadium has 68k seats and Arsenal and Chelsea fans each get... 6k seat allocation.
Thanks zkap. Our feeling for Barça is mutual, even with Suarez in the team. Prefer you a million times over Madrid.
If we lose the league with 97 points and lose a second UCL Final in a row to fecking Spurs, I genuinely give up and I'm not sure how the players will come back from that either.
We must win on June 1st and there is no pressure on Spurs. Obviously they will be nervous and hopefully last seasons final will have helped us in that regard.
I still think we will win it and Spurs will come out with great credit that they reached the final spending no money. But I would have been fifty times more confident playing that Ajax team. Liverpool would have won that with a bit to spare.
Players shouldn't really blame themselves. It is an amazing season no matter what. A cup final is very different from a league game, the motivational factor is very strong and the pressure is huge. I believe that if Pool wins the league it can actually makes their motivational levels drops to the UCL final.
I'd bet my house Liverpool-Ajax would be a hell of an open game, A real CL final with both teams playing attacking football, and in the end I'd fancy our chances against them due to our style of play.
However against spurs it'd be totally different. we know them well, they know us well. Poch has already lost twice against us this season which means they're going to play the cautious game in the final, no doubt. also, god knows how klopp prepares the team for the match. gung-ho style just like we did against barca? cautious like the bayern game?
I really preferred Ajax over Spurs, I still think we got the better chance to win it though.
You are the favorites now, unlike 2005, 2007 and 2017. Losing this final would be a bitter failure.
So what is the injury news so far? I hear Kane may just about be ready, as will Firmino, Salah, Robertson. But Vertonghen was seen on crutches?
We were favourites in 2007. That aged Milan team was woeful by then and we had peak Torres.
Torres joined Liverpool a few months after the 2007 final.
That's some rubbish and AC Milan did as expected.
Bloody hell, so he did. Peak Crouch?
We were considered favourites though and outplayed them. But they deserved the cup after the way we won it off them in 2005.
To think that both these teams were a goal away from getting dumped into the Europa League!
Our frontline was Pennant, Kuyt and Zenden, with Crouch as the sub that should have started ahead of Kuyt. We weren't favourites.
Dreadful final in terms of quality though, from both sides. Even Maldini couldn't trap simple passes.
Exactly, I remember us actually being the better of the shit teams on display but losing. Karma did its bit for 2005.
£1,300 for a return flight to Madrid? Ouch.
You have to feel for the poor citizens of Merseyside. The upsurge in hubcap theft will go through the bloody roof!
I don't feel sorry at all for the Airbnb people: scumbag business.
That said, are easyjet or ryanair that expensive? (UCL final, I know, but I'm surprised they have increased the price that much).
DCL and Richarlison out of the game against Spurs. Coleman is a doubt.
Operation stop Liverpool is ON.
It is 50-50.
Forget the league campaign and previous matches as this is a one off match. Out of all the managers, Pochettino has always given Klopp serious problems in the past especially the second half of the Anfield game. He makes small tactical changes that gives Spurs big advantages and Klopp usually takes a long time to make adjustments. The two games were really close this season and could have gone either way (the penalty not given after foul on Son in the first game and the clanger from Lloris in the second game). I just feel it will be a tense, close game where one goal might separate the two teams.
Of course you preferred to face Ajax in the final, Liverpool would’ve absolutely annihilated those kids with their physicality.
Would’ve been over within the first 20 minutes.
Doesn't matter, does it? Spurs have all but sealed 4th.
I'll go with Liverpool on this one, even from last season I was glad they reached the final and I would consider them favorites against Tottenham. Klopp has done a good work there and it would be a great achievment in a season they might end up in second despite collecting so many points.
Indeed, more about building Spurs confidence.
Ajax 94-96 would have played 2019 dippers out the park.
i wouldn't exactly say 50/50. but yeah... spurs can upset the odds. but i suspect that liverpool will dominate.
liverpool will dominate, but spurs do have individuals to upset the odds
How were Liverpool favourites when Milan had just dismantled premier league champions Man Utd in the previous round convincingly? Not to mention having Kaka (future Ballon D’or winner) in their ranks. They were indeed aging but I would still have had them over Liverpool going into the final.
Excellent. Let's just agree to jog around, have a lovely 0-0 draw, injure nobody and keep everyone intact for 1st June shall we?
The voice of reason.
And Man Utd would have thrashed Liverpool in that UCL 07 final.
Does the cringe get any worse? Hearts and Minds trophy now....
