Really concerned with VAR decisions the last two nights.

Last night Real thought they had keeper sent off and a penalty against them but get a soft free kick on half way instead.

Tonight Inter score what they thought was a second only to be called back for a penalty at the other end which was scored to make it one each.

Both final decisions probably corredt! 

But! 

Need to be quicker!

Napoli holding on and it looks like it will all go down to match day 6

 

Liverpool will need to avoid defeat in Austria to go through

 

Napoli simply need a point at home against Genk

Would be fantastic for football if Salzburg and Napoli went through. Two teams who play terrific football and deserve to qualify. Would be a terrible shame if Liverpool lost players through injury wouldn't it?

 

Chelsea will stroll through which means Valencia or Ajax will go out. The ludicrous refereeing that Chelsea benefitted from against Ajax may come back and bite them, but you never know.

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/football/2019/12/09/jurgen-klopp-insists-liverpool-ready-proper-fight-against-sazlburg/

 

 

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp says his players will ‘run for their lives’ to defend their European title as he prepared for a lucrative group decider against a confident Salzburg.

Klopp arrived for the press conference at the Red Bull Arena in what he called ‘competition mode’, stressing Liverpool’s European ambitions have not been diluted by last year’s victory, nor compromised by a demanding fixture list

“We are a group which is in the most intense period of our lives and we will try to enjoy it. It is difficult, no doubt about that, but that is nothing that can stop us,” said Klopp.

“We know our schedule. We know where we have to go. We played three days ago a tough game, six days ago a very tough game. We play in another in four days a very tough game. Then we fly to Qatar. We don’t expect drops. We don’t accept drops - not just me the boys as well. We ask ourselves for the highest concentration. Then we will see what we get for it.

There could be anywhere between £40-£60 million at stake if Liverpool make the latter stages again. They face a bullish opponent, teenage striker Erling Haaland vowing to score a hat-trick in a 3-1 win.

 

“We are ready for a proper fight,” said Klopp.

“Two weeks ago Napoli were celebrating the point at Liverpool thinking they ‘only’ play Genk in the next game. Salzburg won against Genk and were celebrating they have the chance to play against Liverpool. Two weeks later, Napoli knows they must play against Genk - a football team - and Salzburg must play against Liverpool. We have to make Salzburg realise after all the positive things... bang…it’s difficult. It’s Liverpool. It should not be easy and we have to make sure it is not easy.”

Klopp was in feisty mood as he underlined his respect for the Austrian opponent. He took exception to a reference to the last meeting with Tuesday’s opponents  - a 4-3 win at Anfield - being treated like ‘a friendly’ by Salzburg players, especially when asked how he would ensure his player did not demonstrate complacency. 

Video of his rival manager, Jesse Marsch, chastising his players for treating the first half of the last game as such was circulated on social media. Klopp said at the time he would resign if a club he managed ever released such private material.

“You've seen the first game and that wasn't a friendly,” said Klopp.

 

“I don't have to explain this to my players, this is not a problem for me. We know that we are playing against a very strong opponent. We are highly motivated, so please don't ask these questions again.

“It is not that I expect us to go through. I just expect us to play the best game we can.

“We are not a typical Champions League winner. We are still ambitious like crazy and we will go for everything. We will run for our lives, plus play football. It is not that we come here and think we have to dominate Salzburg. We will fight for each challenge, 100 per cent, like Salzburg did at Anfield. Against us, it must be different to all other football games.” 

Liverpool’s players know pride is also at stake as they crave another series of knockout games in the final stages of the elite competition, thus avoiding the indignity of dropping into the Europa League.

“We want to go until the end again. We have nothing better to do at the end of May or whenever the final is played,” said Klopp.

Watching Henderson and Salah standing over a free kick 30 yards out, whispering behind their hands like they're Secret Service agents. Then punt it straight over the bar.

Valancia v Ajax brawl breaks out and cheating players cause mayhem again..player dives then is hauled up then amazingly given his injury the player who dived gets up and rubs his head into an Ajax player who then hits the deck...just a bunch of cheats

 A win for Atalanta and Red Star and Zagreb being defeated would remove two teams whose countries are close to us in the country coefficients.

Always the coefficient, mate !

Icardi puts PSG ahead and he has been an excellent signing

 

Excellent forward line with Neymar Mbappe and Icardi to call on with Cavani in reserve as well as Di Maria

 

edit 2-0

All the usual clubs back in the last 16.  Wonder if Chinese trillionaires will start investing heavily in other European clubs like Birmingham City for example.

 

Will the current Saudi and russian/American backed  giants be displaced.

 

Personally, I couldn't care less.  I have no interest in the PSGs of this world and I never will.  Hope we are never part of it.

 

Give me a full blooded Fife derby any day of the week.

 

Some of the crowds at the last round of SC fixtures were fantastic.

 

Real football.

 

Expect I'll need the tin hat now.
