Fabinho & Henderson stand tall on the biggest stage

Fabinho & Henderson stand tall on the biggest stage

Who else is still bouncing? Who else can’t think about anything apart from THAT game? Who else wouldn’t change this Liverpool team for the world? Tuesday night is seconded only to Istanbul for me, in terms of drama, passion and emotion, on a night that genuinely felt flat in my mind before kick-off. This time they really weren’t going to turn it around, were they? That Vincent Kompany stunner against Leicester had only further dampened spirits, following an extremely harsh …
Liverpool leave the past behind in thrashing of Barcelona

Liverpool leave the past behind in thrashing of Barcelona

This club is the mix of atmosphere, emotion, desire and football quality. Cut off one and it doesn't work.
The words of a stunned, joyous and emotionally drained Jürgen Klopp after the greatest Anfield night of his tenure: a perfect storm of atmosphere, emotion, desire and football quality that tore into Barcelona, blowing their European dreams apart and reducing even the greatest footballer ever to a footnote in what had been a special European tie. 3-0 down after …
Liverpool 4-0 Barcelona: Who was man of the match?

Liverpool 4-0 Barcelona: Who was man of the match?

There are truly no words so soon after the greatest European night in Anfield's history, but I'll try to find some. This was a depleted Liverpool side - no Mohamed Salah, no Roberto Firmino and, after halftime, no Andrew Robertson - but each and every man in red wrote themselves into footballing folklore. Never has there been such an embarrassment of riches in the MOTM discussion. Alisson Becker kept us in the competition with his remarkable sprawling save against Napoli …
Liverpool 4 Barcelona 0 - What happened?

Liverpool 4 Barcelona 0 - What happened? "Football"

What happened? “Football.” The one-word response from Jurgen Klopp somehow summed up yet another breathtaking night at Anfield. With the team missing three of its most vital performers in Mo Salah, Bobby Firmino and Naby Keita, the three goal deficit left for The Reds after the first leg was so insane that it somehow made us feel more confident. It was a set-up made for this crazy club. Who would the manager piece together to take on this herculean task? …

Key Stats As Reds Do The Impossible Against Barcelona

Honestly, where do you start with this one?! Liverpool are in the Champions League Final against all odds, having beaten Barcelona 4-0 at Anfield, to overturn a 3-0 first leg defeat and make it through 4-3 on aggregate. Even writing that sentence is maddening. So key stats eh? Unlikely Heroes – But Heroes They Are Looking at this Liverpool team, they only really have had three goal-scorers all season, and they were stripped of two of them for this game. …
Player ratings as Liverpool humiliate Barcelona

Player ratings as Liverpool humiliate Barcelona

Just had a big cry. A big massive cry. A happy cry, though. Never had that sensation before in my 20 years on this planet, not particularly shocked that it's football that finally brings it out. These Reds. This gang of lads, a bunch that simply don't know when to quit. They've taken Lionel Messi's Barcelona, hungrier than they have been in years for a Champions League title, and taken them to task in possibly the greatest night Anfield has …

Liverpool v Barcelona Preview: Key Battles to watch out for as Reds face uphill task

Liverpool v Barcelona Preview: Key Battles to watch out for as Reds face uphill task

There's no Bobby Firmino. There's no Mo Salah. That's 2/3rds of a strike force that has struck fear in the hearts of defenders across Europe. Now, to add to that, there is the small matter of also having to achieve one of the most incredible Champions League results ever, if Liverpool are to make a second final in succession. Anfield has had many famous European nights in an illustrious history. If Liverpool are to miraculously achieve the seemingly impossible on …
Nothing to lose at Anfield in Barcelona second-leg

Nothing to lose at Anfield in Barcelona second-leg

It wasn't exactly the ideal result, despite a solid performance. It was a rare occasion that Liverpool found themselves in last night, losing. The 3-0 defeat to Barcelona was a low moment in a season of highs for Jürgen Klopp's men, and it puts their place in a second consecutive Champions League final in serious jeopardy. And what it does is throw the second leg as wide open as Alisson's goal was for Messi's first at the Nou Camp. But …
