Rob Gutmann was joined on his latest overview by Adam Melia, Rick McEvoy, Fuad Hasan and John Gibbons to run the rule over Liverpool’s last month and the sudden realisation that the Reds suddenly find themselves within touching distance of another European Cup Final.

It’s coming home, boys. Relax!
Agree with Adam , thought from a long way out top 4 would go down to the last game.
We will go through against Roma on pens aka 1984, Salah will miss a pen against old club.
Lose final against Madrid in controversial match.
Now I have got that nightmare out in the open all the above is bollocks and all in for best months of our lives!
Great to hear Rob back.
Klopp has given the team, half the city and most of asia their Mojo. It counts for so much in football, beyond talent. Only belief of individual players can get in the way now. Of course Roma will feel the same, but have they been as ‘special’ as us this season , no. We have set the football world alight with a unique and exciting brand of football, and a collection of players whom, none of which could have been considered world stars like Sanchez and pog are supposedly.
The art of top level coaching and building a really solid all for one attitude is not so common in football these days, and JK, imo is proving himself equal and beyond Pep because he’s created something as good as Pep has, with a fraction of the net spend.
There’s no doubt that Roma will be a huge challenge, setting up defensively in that way italians do so well, trying to frustrate the players and fans by holding the game scoreless for as long as possible. I believe The game could be won and lost in the battle between ED and Lovren . Lovren is the potential weak link because there is something about his mentality and concentration levels that just doesn’t fit with high high pressure games. he already came out and said he’s glad we avoided Real, honestly though, id fancy our chances as much against them as Roma, if not more over 2 legs. Real’s defence is fairly lame, whilst Roma’s seem’s consistent and well drilled.
There are no hard and fast rules saying we have to go to their place with a lead, or even not having lost, simply because our attack can devastate anyone. Experience wise though, id say Roma are our equal, if not a little more so, simply because of the age of some of the key players.
Their fan base is equally vociferous and probably more intimidating , and ultimately, whichever side has the more resilient mentality and belief will win this.
We deserve it with the football we have been playing, and what has been built with a bunch of fairly under the radar buys (bar VVD), but as we know, justice isn’t always easy to find, it takes a great amount of fight and effort.
one thing i have a sneaking suspicion about is that, if we get to the final , we will win it, while if Roma do, they probably wont.
Come on Reds. Klopp and this side are worthy of great things.
Roma are playing Saturday away with a 2.pm kick off at Ferrara which is 423 kilometres (263 miles) away for them. Even if they fly, they will need almost an hour on a coach there and back to the airport as well. Effectively, they will have lost all the recovery time advantage of being at home. I like the inconvenience of this game for them before ours.
