    What even the fuck was that fourth goal. I'd call it shocking defending, if there was any defending to be seen.

    I'll be honest, I hadn't tuned in because I thought the thing was done and dusted, before I heard my downstairs neighbours go bonkers.

    Trent Alexander-Arnold is only 20. Holy shit, to pull that off in the CL semis.

    That fourth goal is at the same time some utter brilliance from Alexander-Arnold, but my god is that worst piece of set piece defense I've ever seen. Laughably pathetic, and in CL semis no less.

    I don't really like Liverpool, but god do I love it when Barcelona get humiliated. Their active fanbase has the highest concentration of total wankers out of any club.

    I will never forget RVP's red card against Barcelona. Fuck them, their cheating and their bought refs.

    Yup their entire subreddit was so self congratulatory before the game, about how they would show liverpool their place and whatever at anfield. A pretty satisfying win, now lets see if spurs have it in them to do the same tonight.

    Truly unbelievable result and utterly deserved.

    The way Suarez and Coutinho shrunk before the atmosphere they left behind was beautiful but last night was really all about the players we have now.

    Origi has been an absolute hero at this times season and the entire midfield showed a passion that is so so exciting for the future. Mane continued to be the best winger in the world and somehow van Dijk wasn't even the best centre half on the pitch (Matip take a bow). I think it is fair to say we have the best fullback combination in the world, and they breathe the club. And what a difference a keeper can make! Apparently, in the Camp Nou Allison refused to come up for a corner at the end. He knew this was possible - he'd beaten Barca in a similar way last year and been blown away by Liverpool too.

    These players are so likeable and a joy to watch. It is a privelage to watch them week in week out. Hopefully we can cap this remarkable season with a trophy, but even if we don't this will be a team that goes down in Liverpool folklore.

    This, to me, is the best part of this whole thing. There have been a lot of changes since he got his leg broken by that Everton cunt, and he was out so long I think people forgot how good a form he was getting into when it happened. I love seeing guys that just perform well enough that you have no choice but to put them on the team sheet, and he's really put it all out there the last few weeks.

    Well, @Zeelthor, you might be happy with the current scoreline.

    I’m going to say it’s not looking great for Spurs to advance.

    Ajax for CL Champ 2019!!!

    And all of a sudden, it's tied up.

    Schöne getting subbed immediately after the 2-2 has to hurt.

    Spurs through, Ajax defence crumbled at the last possible second.

    That was fucking glorious. Jesus christ. This spurs side who looked so worn out and had scored only one goal in the past five games just outplayed ajax in amsterdam and scored the winner in the 96' minute. I'm lost for words. They looked done at half time, absolutely done.

    But man when Ajax made that defensive sub and started wasting time I was like the third goal was absolutely inevitable.

    I think I still prefer Bayern‘s and (at least in the first leg) Dortmund‘s complete and utter annihilation of Barça & Real in 2013.

    But definitely one of the best, even though I like neither of the results.
