Lovely header. oblak had no chance.

Well, another loss for liverpool. I hope it ends soon.

To be honest we played much better than recently.

We played well. We are really missing Alisson. We would have won with him on the sticks imo. Oh well, I never really expected to win the ucl again. Two finals in a row.

But we need to pick ourselves up and win the one we all want. Its not done yet. But I know they'll get it done.

I have no idea how we lost to athletico. We were all over them for the whole match. Something doesn't feel right with vvd. I hope he isn't being whispered to by an agent. He just doesn't seem as imperious as he has. His decision making isn't spot on.

{Ed0666's Note - it’s nigh enough impossible to play to the lofty standards Virgil has been producing the last year or so, a blip is warranted. I wouldn’t have thought he was thinking of a move and if he was not sure he’s the type of player to let it affect his on field performances.

We were dominant all over the pitch tonite apart from in the box. Mane was shepherded well and Atleti we’re happy for Salah to have the ball but sadly he wasn’t at his destructive best. I thought he should have scored from the shot that led to Robbo hitting the bar. Salah passed up some gifts as did Mane who is out of sorts which isn’t a worry so much as we’ve pretty much wrapped up the premiership.

In my humble opinion we have regressed on the incisive movement we have showed from when we were formidable and that has to be addressed either in training or in the summer transfer window. I’m certain pace, movement and guile will be bought.

People are condemning Klopp for subbing Ox but Milner Cameron and had a purple patch for a while and I thought he was excellent.

We’re having our blip at the moment and thankfully it’s come at a time when the title has been one. I would have loved to have gone through to the quarter finals but I’m not so sure the Champions League won’t be cancelled so that will take the sting out of losing.

We should have one simples, we created enough decent chances to win we played better than we have for a while, not our free flowing beautiful best but very good nonetheless. We were undone by our Achilles heel a team that’s sets out to ‘park the preverbal bus’ and if that’s the parable then we have to learn from it, lick our wounds and come back more savvy next season.

You are in denial. Of course you expected to win the UCL again. What a poor display the liverpool lads showed yesterday.

12 Mar 2020 07:21:57
It certainly wasnt a poor display by any standards.

It was a very good performance so please don't diss the boys with comments like that. Did you actually watch it?

The loss is hard to swallow though because we actually had the job done at 2-0 before Adrian's mistake. In my opinion he should have stopped all 3 goals but whet do we always say? Win as a team and lose as a team.

Make no mistake we now have what will be a really tough game next Monday.

{Ed001's Note - the difference in the end came down to the defences. Atletico threw everything in defensively, unfortunately for us, Adrian had a mare and our defence (particularly Virgil but it wasn't just him) stood off them and let them play. When it was in forward or midfield areas, the team got in their faces and harried them into giving the ball back. When they got into our defensive third, everyone was stood off letting them pass it around. At one point we had 3 defenders back (I think it was their second) against 2 forwards, but still Virgil just ran away from Morata rather than closing him down, so he was able to pick a pass under no pressure to Llorente. Then Gomez and Henderson did the same to Llorente, enabling him to shoot easily. The only challenge was from Millie trying to get back but not quite in time. Why were we suddenly so timid in defensive areas, even when we had a covering player? Virgil should have shut Morata down, we all know he has no bottle and would have just shanked his pass into touch or to a red shirt.}

I disagree with the notion that we lost to a team that parked the bus. Fully disagree. We did not lose to AM cos they parked the bus (in fact, they parked 3 buses if you include the strikers at many points) and could not break them down. This is cos we created enuff chances, even more than I anticipated before the game, to win the game by 2/ 3 clear goals. We damaged their buses to the point that they were hanging on it's bumper for dear life.

I have watched AM play away from home in the CL and I have never seen that vaunted defensive system get ripped to shreds. At one point by the 40th min, they were dead on their feet. If not, how do you think Gini had no AM defenders within 5 yards of him when he scored. Saul was so gassed that he did not even contest Ox's cross for Gini. Same with Bobbie. There was no AM player within 5 yards of him when he scored off Gini's cross. They were knackered cos we had them on the rack begging for mercy till Adrian gave them a lifeline.

We beat them to the point that they were hanging for dear life. Even Robbo a FB, hit the post. We lost a game due to a GK mistake and could have defended certain phases better and been a bit more clinical BUT to say we lost cos we could not break them down, is inaccurate, IMO.
