    Great match. Keita had prolly his best match of the season I think. That Gini goal, WOW!!! Was nice to get Trent some game time in before the CL. Now the long break before Bayern, wonder who will be paired with Matip? I hope that Lovern gets fit and is able to play, but will suck he won't have any gametime beforehand.

    Well shoot, team left for Marbella for warm weather training and Lovern had to stay behind, major doubt. Looking more and more likely that we'll have Matip and Fabinho at CB. The one decent amount of news to counter that is Muller will miss both legs. I think Keita has to get the start and we'll prolly see a midfield of Keita, Hendo, Gini. Ox had his first day back in training with the full team!!! So definitely will have him for quarters if we make it pass Bayern.

    T-mins 6 days now for leaving for the trip, so excited and can't wait to go. I'm going to be doing some scouting for some camp sights to make the trip cheaper for myself in the future. With my free flight benefits on airlines I can get over there free, a cheap air bnb room for a night or two or campsite and I might be able to do these trips for around 400 bucks. Might give me a chance to go to lots of matches!!

    Whelp snow storm decided to move in around our schedule take off, so we pushed up our departure to hopefully miss the snow. Leaving now in about 6 hours. We arrive in LAX for our flight to Gatwick (8hr layour) about an hour before the CL kickoff against Bayern, fortunately for us the offical LA supporters club is like 10 minutes down the road. So gonna watch the match there, and then off to the UK. Will update when I can during the trip with a few trips.

    Enjoy your trip! Take pics and post them here if you can :yes:

    Must win today. I won't get to watch it live. So I'll be watching it tonight when I get home from work. This CB thing... I don't feel good about it at all. At least we get VVD back for the second leg (and this weekend's huge match as well). So maybe this one isn't a must win. Certainly can't afford to lose though.

    0-0 about the best result you could hope for other than a win hah... I have to say that Kimmich/Hummuels/Neuer were impressive in shutting us down... especially Kimmich... the good news is that he won't be out there next time due to the 2nd yellow accrued. The pressure is on Bayern now to perform at home.

    It's nice to see Keita coming into form at a time when we need him. Just need for him to score now I think.

    Amazing back heel goal by Mane in that game against Watford (2/27/19).

    Mane, Salah, and Firminho have been in a bit of a funk of late. Hopefully they will come out of it. With Alexander-Arnold back at full strength and with Keita coming on, perhaps that will help the front three break out.

    Mane has probably been the most active this year. Salah is still scoring goals but has not had near the energy nor ingenuity of last year.

    well that was a complete performance vs Watford. Just what the doctor ordered really. TAA welcome back... An amazing game from him, MOTM for me. Fabinho was very solid as well. But TAA"s crosses into the box were wonderful. Thought it might have been a trap game in between ManU and Everton.

    Dominant in the second half at Bayern Munich. Such a massive difference right now between the Premier League and the Bundesliga. On to the final 8. I was debating earlier between Alisson and VVD for team MVP... it's not close... has to be big Virgil... although Sadio is making a late push. At least someone has been scoring out of the front three... So you look at the final 8 teams in the CL... four english teams of course... then Barca, Juve, Porto and Ajax. I don't really fear anyone right now. Would be a shame if we had to play Man City again though. That should wait until the final. Porto, Ajax or Tottenham would be "nice."

    Man I've been freaking MIA for some of the best and most critical matches. I've failed ya Paul13. I totally agree that VVD has got to be the Team MVP, and maybe even league MVP. That Spurs match nearly gave me a heartache, but again Mo in the right spot even it was on his goal scoring drought. Oh man watching Hendo in forward attacking position is a thing of beauty.

    This team is clicking again at the right time, nearly everyone is back. Keita, man what a couple of matches he has had. He started out shaky against Southampton but that goal lifted a huge weight off him, you could see it on his face. Then he was money against Porto, good lead to take back to Portugal and hopefully go through. Lallana was also great when he has played the last month, think hes got a slight knock but expected back. I'm going to be so gutted if we don't bring home the title, but for like half a second before I realize that this team is set up for the future, not a one of title challenge.

    Man I totally didn't get any shots during the match because it was bonkers, seeing them score 5 was absolutely amazing. Such a great trip and already trying to figure out how to get back.

    Two things that need to happen rest of this season. If, sadly, we don't win the league, I want it to come down to the final weekend. Every game is that much more satisfying week in and week out... it's building up to an amazing ending... hopefully. Having said that, not sure I can take it... haha! And the other thing, got to get back to the CL final and this time WIN it! Looking good so far vs Porto, them having not scored a goal the first leg really sets up well for the second leg. As long as we score one goal, they need to beat us by 3, which I don't see happening (4-1 or 5-2 in one game?).

    If it happens, Barca in the semis is going to be epic...

    F Chelsea!!!! Though that Robo slip was way to familiar, luckily we had a 2 goal lead and much better defense this time around. Salah's goal was a masterpiece, unreal and at the perfect time. I honestly think the title gets settled this week, it'll definitely go to the final week before the winner is crowned but if we are to win it, this stretch of matches for City of Spurs(CL)-Spurs-United will prolly determine who wins.

    Keita put in another great performance and showing why Klopp wanted him and has been patient with him. I'm really liking the midfield of Keita-Fab-Hendo, Hendo has been a beast up top with Keita in the forward role. I really want Barca, and hope that we get the second leg at Anfield, bring on the giants our boys in Red will take them down!!

    F CITY!!! What a spectacular match that was, I had Liverpool on the big tv and streamed the City-Spurs match on my tablet. What a way to lose a match for City, they have to be completely devastated right now, 30 secs of pure unadulterated joy to be smashed. The look on their faces was priceless. If there was anytime that City might drop points is the next two matches, Spurs again (HAHAHAHAHA) and scum at Old Trafford. Here's to hoping though they drop some points. Also wow on Ajax beating Juve, going to be an interesting semi between Spurs and them.

    As for our game, that's what wins leagues and cups. We were absolute **** the first 30 minutes, and nearly let them turn the tie in a real match. Then the well oiled machine showed up in the second half with Bobby getting in on the action. Absolutely love that each of the front three got a goal (I think its been a bit since that has happened). Well bring on the Barca, going be good. I am happy that we get the second leg at Anfield in case we have a bad one at Camp Nou.

    Another week... and it continues.

    Yeah, you brought up Ajax... wow what a young group of talented players they have. Dutch football on the way back perhaps. Although, they probably can't keep them for next year. I wouldn't mind a couple at LFC but we don't "need" that.

    Sadly, I think this ManU(er) v Man City match was the final hope for Liverpool.

    ManU is so irritating. They get super hot and play great for about two months, including a tie vs Liverpool, and then decide to fall apart at the end of the season when they play Man City.

    I will forever despise them for this. Hopefully they will finish 6th after this loss and then watch the international competition from the sidelines.

    Yea I didn't hold much hope they'd be able to do anything and they didn't. I think title is now theirs unfortunately, but we do have one last hope with Brendan Rodgers and Leicester. Oh well, our boys have had an unreal season and is in no way a failure in the league, if we win out we'll have improved out point total by 22 points which is absolutely amazing. We still have the champions as well. Though as they say, its not over until the fat lady sings, and that won't happen May 12th.

    Oh VVD was announced as the winner of PFA over Sterling, which is freaking awesome!!

    Van Dyke is such a stud - I totally have a man crush on him. So great to hear that.

    Man, if Leicester could by some miracle pull out a draw it would be amazing.

    I have to say the crowds and watching Liverpool home games this year - I've never seen anything like it. Goose bumps. And I love this team. They are truly a great team. Just a hair breadth away from two great titles. I'll take either but winning the PL would be so great. Also, I love when Arlo White calls the game for NBCSN. He totally gets the factor of the crowds and lets the sound of the game be heard. I don't think there's a home crowd on earth like Liverpool's.
