Great fun that second half and pens.
Three memorable twats - Maddison was a bellend, Schmeichel was arrogant and was doing everything that sums up bad sportsmanship and their shower of fans - deserve all the Fxx the Tories they got.
Leicester is a shithole with very few redeeming features so they need to take a long look at themselves!

Fucking great, this.

Their end came across like a horrible gang of wannabe Tory bellends and got exactly what they deserved. That's not a one-off from them either. Far from it. One of those fanbases where a significant portion think that winding up the opposition for 'banter' is the point of the enterprise, and in doing so, pretty much anything goes. Gobshites.

By the way, on this, Gibbo's intro to the TAW Post Match Show tonight was gold:

"All night they were singing 'feed the Scousers', well feast on that, dickheads!"

Is fucking right.

Up The Reds.

utterly glorious that we beat them the way we did. I was of a mindset pre match that actually I wouldn’t have cared much if we went out of this game on the basis of saving ourselves for the league games but we’ll boy I was wrong indeed. That felt brilliant that! Given our starting 11 v theirs, not surprised in the way we started but players sometimes have to learn the hard way and that would have been some education for sure and especially with the likes of Vardy and co prowling about.

Good to see their time wasting antics come back to bite them on the arse. Pathetic gamesmanship from Casper Schmeichel for the penalties. So many similarities with his father insofar that he's a feckless, dull moron.

It’s a shame the ref can’t book the keeper for those types of antics really, am sure that would have put an end to that.

I have never had a problem with Rodgers, although I think he should have been sacked after the 6-1 away to Stoke, but Leicester's Covid/injury subterfuge did not sit well with me and he has been badly burnt by it. Beaten/embarassed by a bunch of kids, picked up more injuries, and has lost a psychological edge ahead of the League game.

  • Stay away from Twitter, it's no good for anyone.
Just did a bit of freeze-framing on the pens and it looks in real time like Kelleher is way off his line for both of the saves.  A little bit of freeze framing though and you can see he times his movement to absolute perfection each time, it really is hugely impressive.

Up The Reds.

It's a mixture of thinking they're funny and using anything they can to try and wind us up.

They even sang the Gerrard slip song over and over which doesn't land at all and probably gets to their own manager more than anything.

"Just like Leicester your city is blue" another highlight. It was a moron convention in their end, i'm glad they had a shit trip back down the motorway.

Considering the joys and successes they've had in recent times, they haven't got much to sing about, have they? Just try and wind up the other fans instead. Another set of fans success is wasted on (like the Man City lot). Millwall wannabes.

game was 3am where im at so was actually just kept updated from the livescore app

was kind of shocked that klopp actually chose the line up. and Neco at right forward

the balls on our german. ;D but hard to doubt him to be fair. Maybe he have seen things in training that might translate on the game itself

Koumetio just might not be ready for a step up yet but at that position every mistake is amplified. Which make kelleher performance even better. Think we have best first, 2nd and 3rd choice custodians.

absolutely gutted for Leicester but Brendan deserves a bit of slack. He can never coach a defence but still a decent enough manager.


mentality and intensity monsters from seniors to our youth. Really just like the boot room days.

Hate hearing people say this morning that Leicester "bottled" it. That has to be the most annoying phrase in football. Any time someone loses a lead they bottled it. They didn't. We brought on some pure quality players in the 2nd half and we already had some quality players on the pitch. Our fans were what real fans are, they were class. We were home, we have a batter team, players and manager. They bottled f**k all, we are miles better than them and showed it. But Jaysus, bring back big Virgil and Fabinho quick !

If we had started with a strong team, and then brought on the kids to see it out (and to save the senior player for the next games), we'd have the kids on for the shootout. The other way round, what Klopp did, was way better.

Leicester didn't do much in the first half, they just pounced on an inexperienced backline and punished the mistakes - we were very easy to score past in the first half given they had their best players on the pitch. The worst thing they did was not have the game won at half time - two goals is never enough.

Once we made the changes at half time we were just better all over the pitch and the Kop can suck the ball in on those nights.

They tried everything to try and see it out (time wasting, diving, feigning injury, trying to get players sent off) but we scored in the injury time their antics created.

Naby was immense. Danced around their midfield like Fred Astaire. Love how he draws in a challenge and simply be glides away leaving them either on the floor or going in the wrong direction. I’m particularly pleased as like, Smicer from years back, you can see a player in there despite the constant flak he takes and you are just waiting for the talent to ignite. I just hope on this occasion, it stays burning.

Top marks to the ref, I thought he was pretty sound for both teams despite not having VAR. Credit where credit is due.

Finally, Kelleher - stood up tall when we needed and sprung like a cat in in the shootout. Brilliant kid. Big future ahead for that lad.

I only saw the 2nd half, but Leicester were completely out of it for the whole half. I didn't realise Vardy was still playing until I stopped to look for him.

They may well have been superior 1st half (which I didn't see any of) but they didn't get a look in 2nd.

Get off they could hardly get out of their own half in the second half.
2 Midfielders in the next window.

Another midfielder and a forward in the window after that. And probably another young CB in the same window.

Anything else is negligent.

Enjoyed the last spot kick when he refused to go and pick the ball up in front of Schmeichel. The  chronic sh!thouse got what it deserved.

Regarding the crowd, " ... you're not singing any more ... " may not be the most original but it was apt last night.

I like how he points out the other teams and not just being selfish in terms of his own players and looking out for players safety.

Had another scouting of the Leicester forum. Looks like a fair few are turning on Rodgers. Can't defend leads, and no defensive organisation. Pretty much what we went through.

Having not been arsed about the game, I'm buzzing that we won after their fans' chants.

One poster was complaining about social media outrage at the chanting "it's not like we're the only ones." Which is a ridiculous excuse for it.

I get that football fans have banter and I love that side of it. I'm not arsed about the 'your city is blue' stuff, that's funny (in an ironic way). But chanting about poverty, referring to us as 'The Victims', holding plaques of 'The S*n' back in 2019... They're a shower of shit. 1 in 5 people in the UK are considered to be in food poverty. That's not banter. That's a fucking tragedy.

I'm not saying that people aren't allowed to be upset or that I think that any chant should be acceptable but it does make me laugh people getting upset over fans singing mean songs. We've sang plenty of our own over the years. It's the nature of us being who we are there's tons of songs to go for about us

I thought it was great that there seemed to be such a good loud atmosphere to a League Cup tie and it made all the more satisfying when we beat the daft bastards.

Well said fella. He's a decent enough chap. No need for giving him stick really. Nearly pulled of one of the most amazing seasons I've been. I think he'll be safe at Leicester for a while. We know what it's like to be smashed with injuries.

Imagine getting games cancelled when other teams have to play, even though you have enough players to fulfill the fixtures. Then imagine your well-rested, full-strength team gets beat by a bunch of kids and a few exhausted first teamers.

Imagine playing for a team at an away ground, only to hear your 'fans' sing songs predominantly about the opposition city, and about an opposition player that left 5 years ago (and an incident that happended 8 years ago under your current manager).

Imagine not hearing any songs about you or your team mates, or your manager, or anything else related to the club - in a cup quarter final at one of the noisiest stadiums in world football, when you need your fans to help the team.

Imagine having such a lack of self-awareness to sing poverty songs during a global pandemic when millions have lost their jobs, and millions more will be struggling around the world over Christmas.

Imagine watching your team waste time on throw-ins, goal kicks and set pieces, and go down on the slightest contact like pre-school ballerinas in a breeze. Then concede an equaliser in the time that was added on for your teams unsporting behaviour.

I'd be embarrassed to support a club like that.

Even though he was caught out several times, I thought Koumetio looked pretty decent for a 19 year old centre half. Games like tonight will show him where he needs to work on his game. Playing against first team players is so much harder than the U23 level.

He won’t develop if he isn’t tested in games like tonight. I know that most people will think he’s not ready but I like the way Klopp tries out young players in order to help their development.
A loan spell might help also.

When Konate came on you could see the difference in class. You could also sense that Gomez felt more comfortable. In fact I thought Konate was our best player tonight with Keita and Jota not far behind.

The first 2 goals were a bit of a mess all round and certainly not the fault of Koumetio. The line was all over the place for the first. Gomez dropped about a yard further back than everyone else that ultimately game Vardy the space to stay onside. For the second, Gomez finds himself out right in no-mans-land and is completely out of the game when they break. Just a bit of rustiness from Gomez I think. I suspect he still likes being the submissive CB as well, preferring to play with Matip or Virgil who take control. Was much better in the 2nd half when he had a bit less responsibility for this partner.
I think the same, can't stand him, but if you could have a £1million pound cheque or steve bruces head hollowed out and filled with pound coins which would you have?
