I WAS at a low ebb there before kick off.
Specifically in ours all day. This shit doesn’t seem fair. I needed something, someone to get me back on track, some kind of affirmation as to why footy is the greatest thing in the world.
Met the lads for four pints before kick off and that was almost enough. No one that arsed about the game, just having a laugh, buzzing off each other’s company. Then the game kicked off and the first half unfolded and the sheer defiance all over the pitch.
In the crowd, with every whistle, with every “fuck off Suarez, you fat cunt”, with every song. Nothing but defiance. That is the Scousest characteristic of them all. Defiance.
We don’t fucking care about you cunts not liking us, we don’t fucking care about you cunts revelling in our perceived downfall. We are Liverpool and anyone who isn’t can fuck the fucking hell right off.
This team, mate. This club. This is what they do to you. I was happy with 1-0. I was happy with us ruffling their feathers, with half a team, and getting had off a little bit. I was happy with us being alive at half time. And then that fucking happened.
Jesus Christ, no wonder every cunt hates us. Best there ever was, that.
He makes an unreal save at 1-0 just before half time. I thought it was offside and wasn’t arsed, but he wasn’t and in fairness he is the greatest keeper I have ever fucking seen. Like the greatest. Better than all the rest. Better than anyone. Anyone I’ve ever met. Makes it look easy.
Is quite possibly the greatest full back I’ve ever seen apart from the lad on the other side of the pitch. Stunning performance. Didn’t see the fourth goal cause I was talking to Melia about how we were going to get diddled 4-1, and when we looked up it was slapping the back of the net. Unbelievable awareness, unbelievable execution, won us the game.
Big Joel Matip: 9
Messi tries to diddle him, first 10 minutes, cuts inside, big Joelly gets a massive horrible toe to it. Like the biggest toe you have ever seen. Like a dinosaur toe. Might have burst the ball like a raptor. Incredible tonight.
Tremendous. Absolutely tremendous. It’s amazing that he is that good and yet big Joel somehow managed to be better. Deserves to lift that cunt of a thing.
Andy Robbo: 8
Was a massive fan of him getting in Messi’s head first half. Fuck off you fucking little beard midget with a magic foot. Carried on for ages with half a foot.
Gets booked early doors and does incredibly well not to get another in the remaining 70. Front foot all day, twatting everyone, absolutely marvellous.
Might be the greatest ever centre mid to play the game. If not, he might have run more than anyone to ever play in centre mid.
Jimmy Milner: 8
Kicked a load of lumps out of all kind of bellends. Unbelievable workload, unbelievable. Then just went full back, to replace the best ever full back to play the game, and no fucker noticed the difference.
Was like a man possessed. Better than Shearer in his pomp. That finish for the fourth, lad. I wasn’t even looking. Was having a lovely chat with Adam Melia about character and defiance, and this side maybe falling at the last but being everything you have ever wanted, and then turned round as it twatted into the top bin. Statues lad.
Did a cracking demonstration of why he hasn’t got a start in six months in the first half. Gave the fucker away every time he got it. Well better second half.
Was as lively as fuck. Everywhere first 10 minutes. Was our second best forward. Determined to be a nuisance.
One of them, isn’t it? Heard him coming on and was devoed that Robbo has gone off. Then he just bangs two. The second is some header, you know.
Not going to celebrate at Anfield. I know, lad. Cause you aren’t even having a shot, you fat tramp.

This one was for the Wrap EPL podcasters earlier this week. Now you know why….. And ye feckin deserve it.
Just the best ever. And yeah, Suarez, we loved you when you were playing for us (well, most of the time) but a useful barometer of how we’ve progressed as a club is us collectively telling him to shove his platitudinous bullshit up his arse. He’s old news, and played like it. Enjoy watching us in the final on the telly. Along with Phil, if you can find him, he went to the shops or something about two minutes in and was never seen again.
This is all about us and we are going to win leagues and cups by the barrelfull, sooner or later, and there’s sod all the rest of you can do about it. Amen.
Here’s another thought for you. Can we stop with the jumping all over Suárez bullshit please? We are all better than that.
Nah… He brought his game, we are now revelling in ours. :D
Brilliant. Brilliant. Brilliant. A proper team. All led by the legend… Mr Klopp. Sitting here, still in disbelief about what just happened. 3nil down to Barcelona. Then tell them to fuck off…we’ll score four. Hope Luis and little Philly had a lovely time at Anfield.
Messi was mesmerized
Suarez was shafted
Can’t wait for Pep to slip up on Sunday.
Cardigans, cats flying out of the window!
GET IN !!!!
Not arsed about other players (including ex players ). My energy love and support is for our lads. You will never see anyone better than them, ever. After the final whistle, last week, and those Barca show ponies minced around grinning, smirking,etc I knew we’d win. And that’s what we do, win. So proud, so delighted, so excited for the final. As for the waiting media et al….. Lineker/ Ferdinand – go hang your heads in shame for your trite little inappropriate celebrations last week. Suck on this red machine !
One million endangered species – support the Seagulls now!
Honestly, get your asses into a train and drive down to Brighton and support them at the weekend!
Not sure they allow you to drive trains unless you are the actual driver of the thing.
All deserved 10 tonight including Divi and Shak for playing a gigantic momentous game only 3/4 fit, really what can we expect from these 2 boys. As for everyone on that pitch tonight, and Klopp and his backroom boys for masterminding the 100% inclusive attitude which knits and bonds this entire squad together in harmony, as well as game tactics and the fitness level strategies, my God, my God how professional. Even our American owners can give themselves a huge slap on the back for getting Klopp in the 1st place, coz I for 1 believe not a single Coach on the planet could have come close to achieving what Klopp has done for LFC in just 3.5 years, and mostly he achieved it by utilising and adding to the existing squad.
Up the victorious glorious mighty reds
Rafa did it in his first season, just in case you may have missed it.
He got lucky on pens to call himself a cl winner.
We could have won the league with him if he wouldnt have been too conservative in his approach.
Klopp wins the cup in june and he is the number 1 lfc manager of the modern era. No doubt!
He got lucky… Yeah he had so much luck Rafa didn’t he when he was in charge. (Rolls eyes)
For someone who lost the plot after the Spurs game recently regarding the comment about luck you have changed your tune about a fella who did us proud and is still loved here in Liverpool.
I am not comparing though as Klopp is ACES in my book but I am pointing out that Rafa had his own comeback in a Final and we also did it the hard way in 2005 beating the likes of Chelsea, Juve, Bayern Leverkusen along the way… yeah dead lucky Rafa
Everyone deserved 10.
WTF is this shit?
Did a cracking demonstration of why he hasn’t got a start in six months in the first half. Gave the fucker away every time he got it. Well better second half.”
Shaq crossed that ball to Gini for the 3rd goal that cracked Barcelona’s back. TAA and Origi broke it.
In other ratings:
The little ball boy who helped TAA in taking fast corner — 1000
Mo Salah t-shirt: never give up .. said everything — 1000
Anfield, Complete performance by Liverpool and a masterclass from Klopp — Beyond rating
@Sash… “and a masterclass from Klopp — Beyond rating!”
I have to ask, have you been abducted???
I’m in awe of Trent AA.
Not only did he play the best game of his career, outshine Messi and Suarez, but having the balls to do that is beyond amazing. Jesus, what is he going to be like when he’s grown up?!
And then, after the TV interview where is as humble as anything, he claps his way around the entire pitch, completely on his own (except for 2 cameramen) thanking the fans that he has just made so happy.
And he only gets a NINE?!
Klopp’s 100% record in European two-legged ties remains intact. This man is a god-sent!
Karma is real!!! Suarez targets and takes out Robbo. Gini comes on and bangs 2 in! Nearly hurled me pre-match meal watching his ‘I love liverpool’ interview on BT. I’m with Robbie. Why did you try to fuck off to the goners then??
I have truly enjoyed watching our boys this season. They are awesome.
I am so made up that they proved all the knobheads wrong of late… Yeah we are bottlers. Yeah Klopp is some Romantic, nearly man, who clearly can be outfoxed in Europe.
I have been trying to get across for some time now that OUR lot, OUR TEAM are something incredibly special. This lot ARE A GREAT TEAM. maybe what happened last night will finally get people to recognise such things.
Very few teams in the English PL get to 90 points and they certainly don’t at the cost of our squad. That in itself should tell you how good this lot is. Very few teams get to back to back CL Finals, especially one as young as ours, that also plays in the toughest league in the World.
We have a World Class manager with some truly awesome players playing for us. We are a great team, up there with the very best that Liverpool have had.
It is now part of the legend that no “star” player won the game. It was absolutely about collective will. The gods picked Origi and Gini just to make an emphatic point about it. Same with Big Joelly. Hendo and Milner, Allison and Virge and Fabinho. Trent and Shaq Attack for massive assists. And Mane as a living incarnation of “Fuck you, fate, this is ours and we’re taking it.”
“you fat tramp”
God bless you Johnno.
Up these Ridiculous Fucking Reds!
