Wasn't a bad game was it? Considering the amount of quilts we have in our support though I expect most waited until the final whistle before celebrating. Just to be sure.

I still can't get over how good Wijnaldum was in this game. The Gini we bought from Newcastle and won an Erdevise with PSV was an attacking midfield force and he was supposed to be that for us. But when he arrived the attacking midfield position at the club were being excellently filled by Lallana and Phil. Then we bought Mo to create our Holy Trinity upfront and Trent and Robbo emerged and all of a sudden the need for an attacking midfield became a moot point. 

Gini to his credit found his role as a box to box shuffler, smartly winning, retaining possession and popping up for the odd clever goal. But he never really was the attacking midfield force we thought we purchased back in 2016... until this game. Until the exact moment we needed him the most, when there was none one else, he remembered the player he was for Newcastle and PSV when everybody else had forgotten. For 45 minutes he became a world class attacking midfield once more and the rest is history.

If I was the Barcelona manager I'd have benched Alba at half-time. 3-1 up on aggregate with 45 mins to go and he's bawling his eyes out? He wasn't up for the fight.

He's still an attacking force for his national team. He seems to be banging in the goals whenever I check their scores or watch them play.

To be fair to Wijnaldum, Klopp bought him to do exactly what he does. He was never going to be an AM for us, it was always our intention to use him deeper. Just fantastic recruitment really to know that his skills would translate.

Malkovich sounded like a guy doing a Malkovich impression. I loved the little slo mos to emphasise that we somehow were really dirty.

Incredible to see how much we broke them and how important the fans are on those big nights. They were 3-0 down mentally at half time.

Also, despite being the GOAT, Messi’s team talks are pretty uninspiring.

He's captain because he's Messi, he never comes across as a 'personality' if you know what I mean. He is what he is. End of the game he just trudged off without the good grace to shake anyones hand as well. Greatest player in the world, but he's never come across as anything but a bit of a characterless, petulant dick.

Problem is though, because he's Messi, do Barca have other players who will stand above him and be the leader a team needs at a moment like this?

So none of them did? I know that isn't true, as I saw some of them, so you don't have to back up that comment  :P

Not sure I've ever seen a whole team walk off at a final whistle and not one of them shake hands. And one player who should show even a tiny bit of class in that situation is the captain.  But Messi has never been one to show class. Greatest talent the world has know, but hard to like cos he's just a wanker with the personality of a pebble, that's always been my view on him though  ;D

I’m sure several “did” but I was saying that I’m sure no one really “wanted” to. That’s such a devastating loss.

And yes I agree - Messi - because he rarely is on the losing side in club competitions - is definitely a poor loser when things go the other way

I've only been able to watch the first 12 mins but so so gripping - I have to do somat else is the only reason i can't continue watching right now.
Very, very watchable - testament to how well it was put together, regardless of the final game result.

Feel sorry for Phil Coutinho in that opening shot. He looks like he's aged 15 years and is wearing a light brown toupee. And that's before the match! (I think) Although based on his ageing I wouldn't be surprised if that was taken after the game hahaha

So proud to be a Red! YNWA.

Cumulative effect.  You can see from the documentary that Roma was preying on their minds; it's why Messi was gutted they never got a fourth at the Camp Nou. 

They might have actually done better against us with just a 2 goal lead.  I think that number three really lodged in the brain and made them paranoid.

It was noticeable that they were hoping we'd run out of energy in the second half. They really had problems with our fitness and intensity. I think when the second went in, it wasn't just Rome haunting them; it was the realisation that they had nothing left to give and therefore couldn't turn it around.

No, it wasn't Roma because they would have had flashbacks and crumbled when we scored early doors, they didnt. They actually played well for the rest of the first half and due to some great defending and Alisson in goal we did well to get to half time at 1-0. We then upped our tempo and intensity in the second half and they couldnt cope it was only when we got to 3-0 that the scars of Roma kicked in and they knew they were done. It was just a matter of time for the Liverpool players and Barca that we were going to get the 4th.

If I was the Barcelona manager I'd have benched Alba at half-time. 3-1 up on aggregate with 45 mins to go and he's bawling his eyes out? He wasn't up for the fight.



I have kind of a feeling that the mental side of the game is not Barcelona's strong side. As others have pointed out they went into the game with the totally wrong attitude (as far as we can tell from what is shown in that documentary). They seemed too focused on what happened against Roma with the best example being Messi's words before going out for the first half. Of course people talked about it, but it would have been the manager's and staff's job to focus on something else like how strong they are or how well they did in the first leg. Instead they seemed to try and use the memory of Roma to kind of spur them on. That was never going to happen.

And I hope we never do anything like that. It doesn't really serve a purpose in my view...

Yeah.. you watch that programme by barca...

Almost the last thing that is said as they leave the dressing room is by Messi.  He tells them to remember Roma and not make the same mistake again.

The message of a colossal fuck up probably isn’t the thing you need to hear just before going out and having to avoid another colossal fuck up....
