    This Coutinho kid... how much?

    1. Dr Van Nostrand
      • 3 Years

      1 Allison and 1 Van Dijk

    That last goal though... Very clever and skilful by TAA. Amazing!

      Yes but more so horrible by Barca. No excuse for that kind of absent mindedness at a crucial moment

        Nobody expects the English inquisition

      He totally did them with that. Pretending to run away. Absolute bolshy genius. And Origi’s reactions to finish it. 😀

      1. Wild Rover
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 20 days ago

        He wasn’t pretending, he was leaving it for Shaq but saw an opportunity. Quality

        1. donlobatto
          • 1 Year

          Do you think? It looked deliberate and Lineker etc were saying how clever he was for doing it

          1. HamezMace
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 20 days ago

            Trent post match said it wasn’t planned.

            1. donlobatto
              • 1 Year
              1 month, 20 days ago

              Oh well. Just shows his ability to seize on a moment!!

            • 8 Years
            1 month, 20 days ago

            How could they have planned for the keeper to be looking away and Origi being unmarked?

            1. donlobatto
              • 1 Year
              1 month, 20 days ago

              Not that part. Just thought he bluffed the run away before taking it but seems he was just being ballsy and took a chance. Barca caught napping. Beautiful

  3. donlobatto

    Totally caught up in the match and result haven’t been on Twitter ... any intel on Robbo injury?

    1. HamezMace
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 20 days ago

      He was interviewed after the match, and just said he’d get it (the injury) looked at tomorrow.

      1. donlobatto
        • 1 Year

        Cheers. Missed that. Was running round the house 😆

        1. HamezMace

          I bet.
          Delighted for you mate.

          ...still can’t beat Northampton though 🙂

            Thanks buddy. Something magical in Europe for us. Just wait til the final with Mo back etc. Can’t wait

    Klopp swearing is very naughty.

    1. Brosstan

      Banned from the final confirmed. Rooney decision set precedent years ago.

  5. Bissaka Boson
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 20 days ago

    Spurs are going to miss Harry and Son in the semi-final. Ajax to go through imo.

    (Harry Winks that is)

    1. HamezMace
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 20 days ago

      Son is available

      1. Bissaka Boson
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 20 days ago

        This is the third time I've made that mistake now. I think I'm trolling myself.

    2. Slouch87
      • 3 Years

      Son not suspended for second leg.

    3. Miguel Sanchez
      • 2 Years

      Son is available in Champions League

    4. Bissaka Boson
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years

      Son is available you tit.

    TAA best right back in the world right now ? Change my mind

    1. Licky
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 20 days ago

      Going forward? Yes. Still needs to work on the defensive side of things a little bit.

      1. Kevin 11
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 20 days ago

        could move to midfield soon

        1. Licky
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 20 days ago

          Yep.

        2. Ask Yourself
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 20 days ago

          Under a new manager maybe but he works perfectly in this Liverpool at RB, irreplaceable

          1. Kevin 11
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 20 days ago

            true but Gomez is good still plus you should be able to do more damage from midfield, close one not sure I see it next season so who knows if it will happen

            1. Ask Yourself
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 20 days ago

              Tactically there is no need for Gomez to play RB even in the big games as we saw today. TAA can change the game out wide he gets great freedom there. I think in midfield he could be easily tracked

      2. Ask Yourself
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 20 days ago

        I agree but Jesus he is a next level full back, the future of full backs I think. The amount of goal contributions he is racking up and how crucial he is to liverpool’s Play there is no more important right back in world football I think

    2. Flapjack ✅
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 20 days ago

      All the best RB’s are English. That’s all that matters.

        It is a beautiful sight to see all our young prospects doing brilliantly I am very excited for next World Cup

          Let’s wrap the nations league up next week and keep moving forward.

          Our youngsters getting these big games for their club is huge too

          1. Ask Yourself
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 20 days ago

            All English champions league finals are a sign of things to come what a time to be a England fan. The stars are aligning I just can’t figure out which West Ham player will score 4 goals in the final, rice should do it

    3. Forza
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 20 days ago

      Alan Hutton hasn't retired yet.

    4. Bissaka Boson
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 20 days ago

      It's between TAA, Wan-Bissaka, Trippier, and Walker imo.

      1. Ask Yourself
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 20 days ago

        Think cancelo, Kimmich and carvajal would be a bit embarrassed to miss out on a list to trippier and walker

        1. Bissaka Boson
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 20 days ago

          Nah, not English enough.

    5. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      Not even close considering 4-0 was the minimum needed for pool to go through. You basically dreamt 'Liverpool goes through', everything else was wrong

  8. Wild Rover

        How could a Liverpool fan be a glory hunter?

            Guilty. But I started supporting when I was 5 so hard to call it proper glory hunting and there’s been plenty of no-glory patches over the years!!

              True. At least you stuck with them 🙂

              Mainly aimed at a few work colleagues who wouldn’t even see this tbh haha

                Yep it’s a long road but it’s a fantastic club to support and these seasons under Klopp have brought a lot of the magic back. A lot more hope amongst even the more embittered fans in my experience

            2. Slouch87

          Started supporting them last season when Salah came and they began looking really good. I know plenty... Liverpool literally have more glory hunters than United. Only English team with more is City.

    2. Dosh

    Who would have thought that two enforced substitutions would lead to Liverpool history:

    2005 CL Final: Finnan (injured) subbed off for Hamann at HT
    2019 CL SF: Robertson (injured) subbed off for Wijnaldum at HT

    And people say there is no such thing as destiny.....

            Playing Robbo, hope he starts, but w/ Bednarek first sub just in case.

                  Pukki! I've heard good things about you for next season.

                  Said my piece already re tonight. Forward thinking now. Mind in FPL mode til it's over.

                If you had a free Pool space worth a punt on Origi or Ginni?

                  depends who you're replacing, but maybe if no other pressing concerns

                Was the scoutcast delayed, or do they just not like football?

                Seriously don’t want Spurs to win.

                TOT v LIV in the CL Final would be such a boring anti-climax.

                  Bugger...

                  If I'd be priced out of Son Doherty to BSilva TAA (-4) with any price fluctuations, would you do the first (Son to BSilva move just now? looks like Bernardo price rising).

                    Wouldn’t be interested in B Silva, he’s steady at best

                            Unbelievable. Same magic I felt in 2005.

                    🙁 Don't like making early transfers but...

                    If I'd be priced out of Son Doherty to BSilva TAA (-4) with any price fluctuations, would you do the first (Son to BSilva) move now?

                    Looks like Bernardo price rising according to both FFFix and FPLstats. Have exact funds.

                      I really don't think it's worth it. There is still football to be played and who knows what state your team will be in by the time the press conferences are done, there could be injuries we don't know about yet. Add the outstanding Son red card appeal and that's a whole lot of uncertainty for a plan that involves a hit going into GW38. Sorry to put a downer on it but id definitely wait.

                          If you get priced out there will always be another option. You never know, they may outscore your original target. Good luck.

                      Not worth it. You can easily pick someone who can score similar to b. Silva even if priced out.

                      Why take a hit for a defender for a single week?
