    Zagadou was all over the place.

    I also now have the Agadoo song stuck in my head thanks to him.

    Neymar isn't far off thirty himself. By the time they're both out of his way he'll be well over thirty himself.

    I don't think I'm being biased when saying the ref in our game has been fucking awful. He's fallen for everything, and given free kicks when ball has clearly been won.

    Atletico present a strong argument for single-legged knockout games. No one should have to watch them play their team twice in a short space of time.

    We were slow and terrible, as we generally are in Europe, actually. Hopefully Mané will be back at his best for the 2nd keg

    1-0 may not be horrible in the grand scheme. No away goal I feel will be crucial.

    Didn't understand taking Mane and/or Salah off. Wijnaldum killed every attack he got involved in and passing was far too slow.

    Referee just seemed to give the free kick to whoever fell on the floor.

    Mané was clearly going to get sent off the next time one of them went down holding their face.

    Maybe he's not fully fit yet either.

    Utterly fucking terrible for 80mins but somehow pulled it out of the bag in stoppage time.

    Us losing a Europa League Semi-Final at home 1-0 to an Atletico who were down to 10 men after 8 minutes might have been the most depressing match I've watched.

    Hope I'm not about to torpedo Dortmund's campaign by being the first person in the world to point out this rules infringement, but how is Erling Haaland not cup tied for this?

    I thought we were pretty poor throughout tbh and the stop start nature of the game killed any chance of getting into our stride. Origi coming on for Mane was as pointless as Mane going off, Atleticos goal was fortunate at best and I think only one real chance fell to both teams. Salahs head and Morata(?) slipping.

    Another night at Anfield it is.

    No longer a thing. They removed that limitation this season.

    You can now play for a different team in the knockout stages. Same from Europa League to Champions League.

    Europa to CL I can understand, but playing for two different teams in the same cup is absolute bullshit. He was well aware during the group stage that he would be transferred to Dortmund so could have done whatever in order to influence the competition in their favour rather than Salzburg's.

    Biggest example of that although not as influential was Minamino. We knocked them out of our group and then he went directly to us. Makes you wonder about the tepid nature of the final game over there.

    45.01 As of the round of 16, a club may register a maximum of three new eligible players for the remaining matches in the current competition. Such registration must be completed by 3 February 2020 (24:00 CET) at the latest. This deadline cannot be extended.

    45.02 Any or all of the players from the above quota of three may have been fielded for another club in the qualifying phase, play-offs or group stage of the UEFA Champions League or UEFA Europa League.
    Does this mean he could have been eligible even if Salzburg had qualified?

    Ajax just didn't want to sell him then.

    I thought it made less sense to buy him in February than to just wait for the summer, but maybe they figure he might not fancy it if they finish 8th.

    Some guy in the comments is saying that Sky Italia clocked him doing 60m in 6.64 seconds.

    The World Record at that distance is 6.34 at altitude, 6.39 not at altitude.

    Bolt's 60m time during his World Record run was 6.31.

I'm all for an unbeaten season but given it's been so long I don't care all that much although I do think we should put some serious effort into chasing the treble as I think that would cement our current status as the best in the world. Three European Cup finals in three seasons...four out of five if you include the Europa League is some really good going no matter which club achieves it.

    If I was to reflect a little further then I do sort of see how annoying I must have been over the years thinking this season would be our year etc as quite frankly we piss on every single side we've had since I've supported them. I would like to think it's over now but until these five league games are completed then I'm going to keep a low profile.
    Top few lines make for a good post-match read.

    Not sure why that moron Klopp didn't use the greatest weapon at his disposal, the greatest side in the country who recently completed football's greatest ever achievement: The youth side that beat Shrewsbury.

    No wonder they lost.

    Methinks too much is being made of the 'Anfield factor' for the second leg, you can tell Athletico really got under their skin with their miserable football. Just need to fluke one in (as they did) to break the game open but it's going to be another eye-bleeder in all likelihood. Probably need Chamberlain and/or Keita to provide more of a midfield goal threat if they're going to have 70% of the ball again. At least they should probably be back in rhythm when the next game comes around.

    That was a first leg? What are the obituaries for then? Liverpool will put at least 3 on them at home.

    They aren't half at some high and mighty moaning today though. You'd think when they win most games so easily that Klopp wouldn't get stroppy when someone doesn't lie down for them.

    I fail to see how Wenger's new Offiside will fix anything.

    https://www.theguardian.com/football...var-calls-ifab

    Quote Originally Posted by Wenger

    “That will sort it out and you will no longer have decisions about millimetres and a fraction of the attacker being in front of the defensive line.”
    They will still measure it using the exactly the same system - but rather than measure the furthest forward part of both players, it's going to be the furthest back of the attacker, and the furthest forward of the defender. This is going to solve nothing.

    It's more like Hall-and, which I'm almost certain is the correct way to pronounce that name.

    I like to think commentators do pronounce player names correctly. It annoys me when players are in sit-down interviews and reports don't ask them how to pronounce their own name

    I was going from this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2wwRouchWAA&t=53s The commentators from last night (not sure if it was BT, Sky or US) were butchering it. Har-land is about right.

    The correct way is Hau-land, as in 'caught'. They've been saying it correctly since his dad was around.
