    Game V spurs haunting us now.

    Had a feeling City would drop some points, and we needed to be perfect for us to win.
    City dropped their points, but we were not perfect.
    Would’ve set up a cracking final day.
    Still hope, still a chance something could happen (provided we beat Southampton).


    City to go down 1-0 to a Coutinho trademark cut in, top corner within 10.
    Liverpool go up 1-0 early. Kop start belting out Gerrard song, with we’re gonna win the league.

    City win 6-1.

    Bold of you to assume we will even get a chance to attack City's goal

    It seems the only fitting conclusion. Raise the hopes, only to blow them away.

    1:25" Klopp starts talking about the penalty shootout and about the company that approached LFC.

    City are absolute machines in the sense of how they can flick a switch and go to attack mode. 15 minutes. 0-2 down to 3-2 up.
    Credit to them, exceptional season.


    Boy we looked average today when we needed a boost, and the goals came when the pressure lifted.
    As commentary touched on, interesting what happens if we go 2-1 up as city is 2-0 down. The boost for Villa, and the effect it may have had on City.
    very tense final day morning. Unfortunately the miracle didn’t come off. But we have also had a great season. 6 wins clear of the closest challenger. 1 point behind the winner.
    Still feels like a bit of a failure of an EPL season.

    3 finals played

    Couldn't score a goal in 330 minutes of football

    That's impressive

    First of all, I'm not taking a shot because Liverpool are 10 seasons of unlimited money away from Arsenal right now.


    But I said this to Bon this morning. 3 UCL finals and zero non-penalty goals. Plus, 3 cup finals this season and zero goals outside of the shootouts.


    Is this a Klopp issue or something to be concerned about? On paper Liverpool had the squad, but as a neutral I always thought Real would win that final, even with Courtois having a cracker, they simply seem more like a cup final team.

    Origi's wasn't a pen. Mane's either.


    Before the bullshit sets in.

    Ahh, I must have misread that (or whoever tweeted it was as confidently incorrect as I was) and it was solely about this year's finals. Disregard then.

    I think we are a step below where we need to be to win EPL and UCL.
    We are a bit of a bully team. We generally have one tactic, and when teams shut that down, the longer they hold us out the more we commit forward and become susceptible.

    I thought Madrid would win that match. They are a well balanced team with lots of facets to their play. They play their experience and then bring on bursts of speed later in the game who are great in their own rights.
    I think our players do brilliantly throughout the season. But I kind of think what Klopp says about approaching each game as a cup final is true. Then we play actual cup finals and can’t seem to go to the next level.

    Klopps time in charge, unfortunately, has coincided with Guardiolas time at city and unlimited funds. Don’t get me wrong, we spend some money, but we can’t afford 100M transfers every season. If Guardiola isn’t managing city, I think we have at least another EPL title.


    Moving forward, we need to perfect a plan B. Our plan A is pretty good, and gets us 75% of our games comfortably.
    It’s that other 25% that we rely on luck, or scrappy scrappy points. That needs to improve.


    Enjoying the ride we are on. I fear the next 2 years will be vital when we are faced with turning over our front 3, Salah, mane and Firmino. Diaz and Jota look good, and hopefully they can step up to the plate.
    5 years ago, if you said we’d win a EPL, UCL, make the UCL final 2 other times and challenge for the EPL on the final day on two occasions I’d have jumped at that, and apart from Many City or Madrid fans I think most clubs would prefer that.

    That's what Pappas will be like IMO, Only ever gonna have a Plan A and when it works its great, Just gotta hope it works when it matters

    So, Mane seems all but gone. 30M offer rejected. But seems like he will leave sooner rather than later.

    I’m somewhat excited by the Nunez rumour. Bloke destroyed us in that QF, a few metres cost him a hat trick, but his finishing in some pretty crazy positions impressed me. Not sure he’s worth the asking price, can see Man Utd paying overs for him.


    Think we really miss a genuine striker. A good finisher.
    There’s a video getting around of TAA delivering perfect balls and them not being finished. Goes for almost 3 minutes. Goes to show how a clinical striker could have a field day in this squad.
    (Though, there’s also a lot of goals we have no right to score, they somehow go in, so I didn’t think too much of it, but interesting watch tbh).

    I don't think it will happen, but the Harry Kane rumours don't frighten me.

    Late news but, Nunez confirmed.
    If he’s anything like the last Uruguayan we had, in terms of football ability, we are in for a treat.

    Granted I only remember him in that second leg, and he put fear into me every time he had the ball. Looking forward to see how he goes.
