Disappointing end but that was the most un-Liverpool performance I've seen all season. Slow, uninspired, no press, no energy. We just looked like a really, really tired team just hanging on and hoping for a bit of luck or some bad defending or a mistake which we never got. Helps too when Courtois was saving everything.
But we were just absolutely nowhere near our best. Real barely troubled us but somehow found a goal. Bitter way to end the season. That's really one that has gotten away though, we are better than that Madrid side and it would be deserved for this wonderful team to have gotten a second European Cup.
Still love each and every one of them. They need a rest. We need some reinforcements, and now we go again.
Players were running on fumes. We looked gassed. I was so surprised at the lack of energy for a big final, the press was non existent. The commentators mentioned that it may have been us pulling back to protect the wings but we just didn't seem to play our game. I firmly believe that Real were possibly the worst team to come up against as they are the sort of team that were going to sit back and hold out for that one chance that they did end up getting.
I think TAA gets a lot of stick but there were also many good moments of defending from him, I actually though Robbo was a bit off tonight. Salah is also a worry in these sorts of games. I feel he was not the same player after AFCON.
Bitterly disappointing season in my opinion.
