Hi Steve

Well done Liverpool. Not the best football I have seen from either team. Lots of misplaced passes and some dull passages. Both teams tried to to score from break-aways. Liverpool scored an early goal which gave them some confidence. Unlucky own goal equalised. Roma's attacks were spoiled by reckless shooting giving the Liverpool goalkeeper little to do. Despite all this the game was exciting.

A second goal seemed to have decided the game but even tho Roma scored two late goals Liverpool never looked like losing.

So now it is Real Madrid. If liverpool turn up with their best game I think they can beat Ronaldo and mob. Hope so....we need to have an English team to win.

Cheers

Mike

I am just getting ready to watch Liverpool v Roma. On paper Liverpool should win but sport does not always work out like this.

If Liverpool produce their fantastic away game there should be no problem.

I will be shouting for them.

Good luck

Hi

I went to Old Trafford yesterday. Went to see Wengers' Goodbye .

He picked a weakened team which lowered the game. Even so United did not dictate as we all thought they would. They scored early on on then went to sleep. An Arsenal equaliser woke United up and they attacked a now packed Arsenal defence without looking like scoring. In injury time United clinched a game they should have won hands down.

One consolation is that they still hold the second place that they have held all year and in doing so they have now qualified for next years'
European League Championship.

Cheers

Hi Dan - long time no see.

Yes Mo has been a fantastic winner for Liverpool this year. He is backed up brilliantly by Roberto Firmino who has assisted Mo.....and has scored a good many goals himself.

Actually neither of them scored against lowly Stoke City yesterday but the team had some changes and no doubt an eye on next week's Euro semifinal second leg. They are in a good spot but the have to finish it.

Good to hear from you.. Hope you are well and pulling in some big ones.

Hi Steve
I did not see the match. Visitors arrived unexpectedly, so all I know is what the papers said.

We were out in Funchal many years ago and we were walking uo near the Sports arena where there was a schools competion going on. It was very hot so we called in the ground and got some cold drinks. As the children were playing the Funchal football league football team were training. Me & my wife took some great pictures of the children and one or two of the Footballers.I had taken some videos. Some years after we were sorting out a huge pile of pictures and lo and behold on my videos there was a familiar face ( not then) of Christiano Ronaldo training.

Of course I saw him play for Man United many times after this.

Small World eh ??

We did go to Madeira a few times after this but never saw him again.

On one of our walks way off the beaten track on a levada we came across a Manchester United supporters club.

We were made VERY Welcome !!!

Well I've just watched the Bayern/Real match and what a debacle it was. Bad tackles, injuries galore, stop-start, no class, no quality, golden-balls Cristiano hardly getting a look-in (I have a great photo of Mrs Steve next to his bronze statue in Funchal, where he was born and where he's the stellar man of all time). As Real got two away goals and are winning, it should be Liverpool-Real in the final, but who knows. And Real have an absolutely terrible goalie, which could help...

Hi Steve

WOW WHAT A GAME

I agree whole-heartedly with the description of Mo Salah's first goal.
Magnificent in it's simplicity and in it's importance.

Up until this goal both teams were slugging it out and attacking each other. The goal seemed to affect Roma and their defence crumbled.

From this point Liverpool tore holes in the shakey defence and should have had more then the five they, Sane alone missed three good chances.

There was a blip near the end which as you say leave a small chance for Roma to hit back.

Riveting stuff.

Man of the match undoubtedly Salah with 2 goals and 2 assists. Van Dyjk Looked composed and for the most part held the defence together.

Looking forward to next week. I cant see Liverpool giving away a 3 goal lead.

Cheers

Mike

How's about this for a gorgeous piece of purple prose from Barney Ronay in today's Guardian, describing Mo's first goal:

"It began with the most vital of all his many beautiful goals this season, one of those moments when the game seems to stop. Salah took the ball inside the penalty area found himself with a tiny pocket of space. With a shift of feet he looked up and produced with no real backlift a shot that did something extraordinary, the ball seeming to hang under the lights, generating a strange moment of hush as it arced under the bar before crashing down over the line."

Heheh. I agree with every word!

Hi Steve

Many congratulations on Liverpool's Mo Salah'S award of the PFA Player of the Year Award.

It was well deserved. Not only has he achieved 40+ goals this season it is the manner in which he scored them. He has a wonderful temperament and takes everything in his stride without any of the usual Hype associated to footballers these days.

A wonderful recognition for both him and the Liverpool team that has assisted him in this honour.

Cheers Mike

PS hope he doesn't score against Man United in the coming season.

hi Steve

The Referee certainly wasn't on Liverpool's side. I wouldn't have said it was a certain penalty but we have seen many given for less. Liverpool ( due to team changes) lacked their usual aggression and sparkle. But when you are in multiple competitions you have to try to manage it. Klopp was not happy....he even complained about a dry pitch.!!!! Does he not know that it is the same for both teams??. Pity they didn't play today....it's p****** down here.

Last week United made 7 changes and still won 2-0.

Yesterday this paid off big time. He brought his top players back with great results.

This was United at their best. Aggressive and with pace they deservedly beat Spurs and they had to come back from a goal down.
This was a great match to watch with both teams going hammer and tongues at each other.

The ref was poor here too. He ignored Spurs constant diving, their were more dives than in the Commonwealth games diving competition.

Pogba and Sanchez both were great and for me Matich was the best player. He works under the radar very much like Michael Carrick he just gets on with it.

I will be watch the Pool next weak and know it will be a great game in which I hope Liverpool get a good result.

Well, Mike, it was an outrage. Liverpool were denied a stonewall penalty and West Brom should DEFINITELY have been down to ten men after Hegazi punched Ings in the stomach, apparently unseen by the referee.

Having said that, I thought that Joe Gomez was below par and Alberto Moreno was still the give-the-fans-a-heart-attack merchant. Maybe Jurgen rested one too many of his best.

Hi Steve

Yes very good article. I was one of the many that thought Liverpool would struggle when Cortinho went. Rightly much of the credit goes to Klopp's bringing in Van Dijk. This move has steadied, organised and energised the defence.

I don't know how much Van had to do with the emergence of the full backs, but I believe he has given the kids opportunities to attack something which they have taken on to great effect.

Hi Steve

United won quite easily despite some enterprising play by Bournemouth.
This despite 7 changes to the usual United team. Pogba was deservedly
Man of the Match.

This win keeps United in second place, where judging by the run ins they should be able to stay there. Of course I am not able to judge what impact on this will be with their involvement in the FA Cup.

Of course Liverpool have similar involvements in Europe.

Could be only decided on last day.

PSG are hopeless at the moment and Barca are a waning force, far too dependent on Messi, and Iniesta is not the force he was. Real Madrid are having a clean-out this summer, Ronaldo is getting on and Bale is going out of favour. Jurgen is doing a mighty job at Liverpool, he's building a team, not a bunch of superbrats, he's amazing at getting the best out of young, developing players, morale is great and why would he move?

At the moment I do not think Jurgen will leave Liverpool. I hope he doesn't because he has blown a stream of fresh air to our football.

But a year is a long time in football these days. In the 20 teams in the Premiere League less than a quarter have been with a club for more than a year.

What a bloody mess !!! United came out and for 90 minutes looked like a disorganised rabble.

They should have had an early penalty but it appears that referees have decided not to give them. But after that United reverted to passing backwards allowing West Brom to organise their defence.

They are a bogie team to United but that is no excuse for the tripe they displayed yesterday.

I haven't seen a better goal than that one all season. I also watched the whole game. Good to see Spurs getting licked by City - even if they win their match in hand they won't overtake Liverpool due to inferior goal difference. Chelsea are surely out of it now. Klopp's strengths seem to be getting great camaraderie in his squad and really improving raw talent. Mo, Ox, Robbo and TAA are growing fast. Virgil has settled the defence and Lovren is looking good. Next season be very afraid.

Hi Steve

I watched Liverpool v Bournemouth yesterday.

Liverpool were completely superior in every way. It was so one-sided that it became boring.

Mo Salah should be complimented on reaching 40 goals in one season. Another really good goal made to look so simple.

I have already given my views on the young full backs - Alexander Arnold & Robertson. But I have to commend them again. They are fantastic both in defense and attack. Wonderful range of accurate pinpoint passing feeds their hungry goalscorers through-out the game.

Years ago full backs were huge guys who kicked everything above the grass and lumbered around the edge of their penalty area.

Todays' fullbacks are now wingbacks and are extremely fit and pacey
athletes, These two lads are going to be fantastick players for the future.

Just getting ready to watch United - If we dont't win today they will want locking up.

Hi Steve

In my previous post I forgot to say that I was disappointed by the referee who made no attempt to stop Liverpool's attempts right from the kick-off to waste time. They did everything they could to slow the game down and the ref did absolutely nothing about it. Ok most teams do it towards the end of a game but from the start it is a little boring. It worked as it ruffled the City Players which upset their style of play.

I don't blame Liverpool the Ref was to blame. All good players will play to the referee. There was no time added at half time to allow for this and also for some hold-ups for injuries.

I don't think he was biassed just inexperienced.

Perhaps the rugby League method of logging time wasting and stoppages would help.

Hi Steve

Congratulations for a fine win. It was a very fair result. Liverpool clearly won over the two games.

I have seen some shots that say that the goal was just offside. But I am not convinced. It looked a goal to me. The usual problem of accurately deciding was he in an offside position WHEN THE BALL WAS PLAYED - I believe he wasn't, but there is just a split second in it.

It was similar to the United City game in that city played magnificently in the first halves. They could have scored four or five
But by good luck and fine defence Pool gained their deserved win.
I thought that they looked to be tiring when Salah did what he does best. That one goal completely shattered City but they kept trying.

What sheer character Liverpool showed after half-time when they looked like they might be basket cases. Was that goal offside or not? At first I thought not but I need to see replays. Whatever, it was football at its finest, both teams feisty, no negativity, both going out to attack (whenever they weren't under siege!) and win. Brilliant entertainment.

I am organised to receive tonight's City v Liverpool game. Pack of Black Sheep ready in my " cupboard.

City are obviously going to go for it....they have no choice. Liverpool may have to play a game alien to them. Still it should be a cracker.

As I am completely unbiased for this game I can sit back and enjoy the ride.

I see that Liverpool asked United if they could use their training facilities. United said they needed them. Have.t Liverpool faciilties of their own? Or perhaps they thought it would save the players tiring
from that long run.

I lived in Inverness for four years and watched a lot of football while I was there. In those days Inverness had ( I think ) 3 three teams one of which was an all amateur team. They were called Thistle , Caledonian and clachnacuddin .

I can't remember if any played Brechin, Around this tome the leagues qw
were changed and I think Brechin went into a newly formed East 2. I think Brechin did win a few in fact I believe they won their League one year.

I don't think they winn it this year...LOL

Cheers

Mike

Used to get the "real" football at Aberdeen and Dundee.
