So it's a last four of PSG City Chelsea and Madrid. Finance wins.

{Ed077's Note - Sour grapes.

Football teams are allowed to spend money you know. The teams that got there are there because they deserve to be, we were crap so we did not. On the contrary our £50 million signing who barely ever plays is largely to blame for us getting knocked out. Nothing to do with ‘financial doping’.

We were beaten by a better team in Real Madrid, they deserve to go through. While I’m not someone who likes teams spending big season after season, they manager and players still have to put the work in to reach their targets. So I have no problem with those 4 teams being in the semi final, they deserve it based in performances.

Liverpool fans probably wouldn’t complain if we had an endless out of money.

Fair play to those 4 teams, I just hope Man City do not win. Chelsea or Real Madrid for me.

15 Apr 2021 11:42:09
the team that wins it will deservedly do so, after last night i don't care who wins it.
In fact if an English team wins it am i right in thinking 5th place gets a place next season.

{Ed002's Note - No. The fifth place would go to an English team winning and not being in the top four.}

Ben seriously mate get over it we lost end of🤦‍♂️.

15 Apr 2021 11:57:53
Agree Ed, sour grapes, we had our chances but the bottom line is Real Madrid were better than us over two games. Having said that, for the first time in a very long time, I have no interest in the Champions League. My brother is an Arsenal fan and he's pulling for PSG just to rub it in the faces of Spurs fans.

15 Apr 2021 13:22:22
Exactly. The game is played on the field, we had our chances, we didn't produce. What's the sour grapes for? We're better supporters than that. I hope PSG get it. Maybe they'll slow down on the obscene prices and salaries they're handing out (and inflating the market) once they've gotten it.

OP, I can taste the salt from your post all the way from here in Brussels. Show some dignity even in defeat. We had our opportunities to win the tie, just like we did vs Atleti and wasted them all. If you are mad that we lost, I propose you look inwards rather than slagging off other teams for succeeding where we failed. You should b better than that.

15 Apr 2021 12:10:01
For me I would be happy to see City win it. The club I love is out so as far as the competition goes I am a natural. Regardless of what people’s thoughts are on their spending or fan base City you cannot deny under Pep then are so pro football. And in this day and age that’s actually quite uncommon. So many teams set up these days and are actually anti football.

To owners and players football is a business and job but to us fans it’s entertainment. And you can not say City are not entertaining to watch whilst most clubs sacrifice entertainment for financial gain.

Same JK23. A lad I work with is a City ST holder. Up until this C.V. only European aways he'd missed were the trips to Russia. Still says his best day as a City fan is Wembley vs Gillingham in 99. Sadly he now also has a brain tumour so it really makes me hope they win it this year.

United win Europa then 5th gets CL right?

{Ed077's Note - no.

5th position (or any other position outside the top 4/CL qualification places) in the league gets CL footy only if they win one of CL or EL.

Liverpool won't be getting CL next season b6 finishing 5th now.

People need to get over the hatred of Keita. Literally any one on the pitch in Madrid could have been hooked, Naby was poor but he definitely was not alone. Getting ridiculous on here, other players like Mane and Firmino have been poor for a long long time.

{Ed001's Note - yes, but they have also performed well for a long time before that. Keita has never bothered to turn up, that's why he gets stick.} Become a Patron!

15 Apr 2021 19:28:37
It's also just as ridiculous the extent people will go to, just to justify their posts and thoughts. Mane and Firmino have been as bad as Keita? Hilariously laughable. Keita hasn't produced 1% of what those two have given the team in the last four years. This is living in an "alternate reality" stuff, really.

15 Apr 2021 19:55:37
Fair enough ed, but its at the stage where a conversation has nothing to do with Keita and his name has to be brought up. Bit pathetic at this stage.

16 Apr 2021 03:19:07
I brought his name up to highlight the fact that while some people believe we are the crusading champions of the plucky, financially responsible underdog, we too have spent lots of money and a fair chunk of it on players that lots of other clubs wanted, but haven’t worked out. I used Keita as an example but depending on your perspective that could also extend to Ox, Origi, Shaqiri and Minamino, however there is no doubt that Keita is by far and away the worst.

While lots of our players were terrible against Madrid, to use that as an excuse to virtue signal in defence of Naby Keita is quite a confusing stance to take for anybody who loves the club. Of course other players were bad in that one game, but it’s not about one game. It’s within the context of the history of Keita’s consistently poor and often effortless performances in a Liverpool shirt. He’s barely played all season, he should have had fresh legs and been raring to go, given one last huge opportunity by Klopp in the biggest game of the season (which I think everyone felt even before the game was an astonishing and undeserved show of faith in his abilities) and then he goes out on the pitch and does that. Wijnaldum was just as bad, but he at least has half the excuse of being tired and has been a far better player for Liverpool than Keita has, despite his performance also being one that was an accurate representation of his usual pattern of behaviour.

That’s what it’s all about, if you’ve been putting in the hard work for years then you have that credit in the bank and we know that a poor performance isn’t a true representation of who that player is, but in the case of Keita that’s all he’s ever been. He’s been given way too many opportunities and treated all of them with nothing more than contempt for Liverpool Football Club, and while there were many other players who were awful against Madrid, I have no doubt that they would have played a lot better had literally anybody other than Keita and Wijnaldum been playing in their place, such was their lack of effort and ineptitude. It was like playing with nine men in that first half and i’m not suddenly going to treat someone like Jota the same as Keita because he had one bad half that was sabotaged by other players who couldn’t give a toss.

So personally I think supporters are well within their rights as fans to speak unfavourably about Naby Keita, as he’s consistently made a mockery of the only thing that Liverpool supporters ever ask of their players; that you respect the club and try your best. Now I don’t ever want to tell another supporter how it is best that they go about their supporting, but if you’re going to go out of your way to take swipes at other fans for holding certain individuals accountable for disrespecting our beloved club, i find that both baffling and concerning.

16 Apr 2021 05:52:16
Well within their rights to speak unfavourably, when he's actually the topic of conversation. But lately on here someone could post"lovely day isn't it guys? "and someone would reply "yeh, but it would be a good 10 degrees warmer if Keita wasnt at the club". safe in the knowledge his post will get a few nice little thumbs up.

16 Apr 2021 12:31:25
It would feel warmer if Keita wasn't at the club, sure it would lift the mood of a lot of people.
