Comes up past the King Harry - Anfield Road is closed to traffic past the ground.

Oh shit yea totally forgot about the Annie Road being done! That’s good the bus welcomes were  always better going past the King Harry

Bus welcome was pretty poor against Benfica to be honest. Hopefully a lot more will be out for this one. I remember the Villarreal bus welcome in 2016 for the Europa Semi when it came up past the King Harry and the place was bouncing.

Would love to see a packed Anfield with scarves and Ring of Fire again.

Can everyone please cheer the black Ellison's coach as well as our red one as judging by the Inside Anfield videos, that's the one the players come on now for some reason. I reckon Jurgen is on the red one on his own with his feet up and shades on. ;D

I wondered about that, Jurgen got off the red one and the players all get off the black one.

I know they're a different proposition now, but last time they came to Anfield, the game was won before a ball was even kicked as they made their way through that crowd outside the ground.

Not bad tonight - definitely flatter at times than other semi finals but first leg at home against a very dull side on the night might explain it to some extent. Felt like it didn't fill up quick enough the ground and feels strange when the sun is out!

Shout out to the 10 people around me creating most of the atmosphere in that area, kept it going throughout the second half despite how no one else was joining in. Atmosphere was obviously very good around 50-70 mins and the rest of the time it was ok. Not great considering its a European Cup semi final- a lot of people seeming not that arsed really. I'm used to 305 so that does skew my perspective so I might be a bit wrong on that.

Apart from a dickhead Spanish guy in the Lower Kenny with a Man U cap on causing trouble, it was an ok to good atmosphere.

It was not like any of the previous Semi finals where it was a feral atmosphere. But it wasn't really a game where the players needed the crowd to drive the way of playing. It was more of an encouraging atmosphere.

This was definitely the game where most regulars sold their tickets on to have money for the finals ahead.

Looking over at the kenny, loads were well up for it. The scarfs at one point looked great. The lower main is the worst part of the ground to sit in for singing and general support now.

Good in the 100s but there’s been so much better over the last few years. Very few games match the early Klopp era now when we weren’t used to so much success. The players didn’t really need our support too much tonight but we still need to give it for the full 90mins

was decent, of course we've had better. we played great but Villarreal's gameplan in the first half worked pretty well to be fair to them and probably added to the up-and-down atmosphere we had.

I don't know about anyone else but I'm absolutely exhausted. If anyone ever asks 'why's it not always like that' this is why. I'd be fucking dead by October most seasons.
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.

I sit in the upper Kenny and the concourse singing beforehand was brilliant and just after we scored our 2nd everyone was up on their feet with scarves - best atmosphere up there since last week vs Utd!!!!

Yes. First time for a CL game this season where everyone stood all game.

Stewards tried their best to get people to sit. But gave up and just spent their time keeping the steps clear

If im in the wrong place feel free to move this.

Im not really sure where to put this but I have an Idea for a new song chant to the tune of "Ca Plane Pour Moi" by Plastic Bertrand. (Final in Paris)

Ive been thinking about it since before the Bayern game and Ive been humming it to myself since and its hyping me up for the final.  :D

Its just around the chorus (0:44 in the embeded vid)

"Sept times pour moi" (Artistic license but "7 times for me" with the Salah part thrown in for his revenge vs Real)

Sept Times Pour Moi
Sept Times Pour Moi
Sept Times Pour Moi, Moi, Moi, Moi, Moi
Sept Times Pour Moi

(And Mo Salah) *During the Hou-hou-oou-oou!*

The atmosphere should be red hot tonight.

Two massive finals on the horizon, the league still to fight for. This is 1977 territory. If the Kop reaches those levels it will be unforgettable for anyone lucky enough to there. And Liverpool will win.

Here’s hoping Yorky. In the Kop bar now and it’s rammed, everywhere seems a bit fuller earlier than normal. Hope everyone isn’t gassed by the time kick off arrives!

That's more like it. Best atmosphere for 3 years in my opinion. Responded well to going a goal down and got a huge point. A point we wouldn't have got away from home.

Maybe it was the BT mics, but it sounded dreadful. They must've muted the ones near our fans, as at times it sounded like a prayer meeting.
