What ******* manager keeps tired players on in case 2 hypothetical goals get scored in a couple minutes. This is meme posting to the max
You can carry on whining about me offering up an opinion or you can have a conversation. Do you want to continue being a child or not?

Taking off all their potent attackers with a slender lead was silly. Why did Kdb go off? Was he injured? If not that's stupid. It's not like he's tired, he didn't play on the weekend.

Pep regularly has PL games where he makes no changes because their depth is shit. But he makes three changes in a CL semi where some weren't injury or fitness related? Yeah, nah.

Why so much angst about people saying Liverpool haven't won yet? You'd think we hadn't just watched a match proving how unpredictable knock out games can be.

Because as we established, the reason is that Liverpool would beat Real Madrid 9 times out of 10.

Good thing that Real Madrid only have to play Liverpool once, so maybe they will save that one win for the Champions League Final. 😂

Dream scenario for United fans. I guess it was asking too much for an all Spanish final but at least one of your rivals was ousted and now you have hope going into the CL final that we both dont win it.

I for one, hope we make your life miserable come the final. ;)

It's called the Champions League. Yet neither Liverpool or Real Madrid were champions last season. And ultimately it's a knock out cup not a league.

But the format seems to work to produce some classic ties.

Right.. So that means the 1 out of 10 never happens and Liverpool fans are wrong to not pencil it in?

They'd be called arrogant if they did that.

Not sure what that has to do with what you're quoting.

Liverpool would be favourites for sure, but you can't discount Madrid, ever.

There's a reason why they've won it 13 times. Although not sure what the 1956 win has anything really to do with todays win.

But agree, there's something ethereal about the players, the stadium, club. It's like the FA version of the shinboner spirit

Liverpool v Real Madrid.. 2 resplendent sides in the final so it's going to be an entrancing game.. looking forward to it.

If you're a neutral.. be greatful it's not a Liverpool v Manchester United/Everton/Barnsley final or something like that. Unless of course you enjoy watching one sided affairs where one side torments and teases the other side for an easy and wondrous 4-0 win or whatever. Nothing wrong with that either.. really.

Barnsley were stiff to miss the final tbh.

After KDB went off City went another goal up.

Grealish for Jesus was one potent attacker for another and he nearly scored a couple of goals.

2 goals up with 5 minutes to go is normally job done for scoring and you shore up the defensive midfield. Mahrez had done very little apart from score so bringing on Fernandinho was the correct call at the time.
