Henderson is an easy target because he's not got the skill set or flair of the likes of Salah, Pogba, Pirlo etc.

Henderson does a solid job for Liverpool, keeps things simple and most importantly sacrifices himself for the benefit of the team.

A good honest professional doing a good job, yeah funny alright Ermm



The same as Glenn Whelan.
Unsung hero who does the simple things very well.

I presume you're not actually comparing the level of both players Zizu, but Whelan should never be mentioned in the same sentence as Henderson. That is a truly cutting insult to Henderson.

Heard it was for diving before the peno was kicked.

Should be a great final as many have mentioned both teams have the firepower up front and the potential defensive vulnerabilities to be exploited.

Real have to be favorites mainly due to their experience.

Karius was very poor last night. What was he at for the Naingolan goal?

It was a great strike to be fair but it seemed like he thought it was going wide and was trying to run after it. Why, I don't know, because it's not as if they were chasing a goal. It was a poor attempt to parry the ball away for Dzeko's goal too.

It was a serious strike and don't think he would have got it regardless but the Dzeko one was atrocious goalkeeping

Well that has put the Karius improvements debate to bed. He made several mistakes and if Liverpool want to progress further he needs to be replaced. 

Another mad ole game in the ACL, the last few years have been excellent and this might be the best of the lot. Plenty of goals in the Final will top it off nicely

TAA pulled off a save that Karius could only dream of making. I think that in itself says quite a lot!

Two teams great at attacking but will concede sloopy goals.

Great season for Liverpool, second only to City.


You'll not be saying that if they finish fifth and lose the final.

Europa league football next season would be hilarious. They won't finish 5th though due to the GD

They are making hard work of 4th but they only need 2 pts from 2 games to make it.

EL for Chelsea. That’s 2 out of three seasons they have missed out on champions league football.

You are easily the saddest human being on the planet there is absolutely no doubt about that at this stage. Do you recall your laughter when a few on here mentioned Liverpool as potential winners? No? Memory a bit hazy?

I'm still 100% certain they won't win it.

As for the saddest person on the planet comment, I think you should look inwards old man. All it took was me saying about how I didn't think Ederson was the best keeper in the PL and you've been 100% triggered LOLLOL

Dave, any advice or links to bus companies about  getting from Chisinau to Kiev and back or hiring a lad to drive a car or minibus up  and back, got flights to Chisinau wed-sun for e273 and have the Cosmos booked e35 a night for a twin room

Get the train. Not sure how to go about booking it but there are multiple daily trains from Chisinau to Moscow that go via Kiev.

You can check the times at pass.rzd.ru but I really don't know how you go about booking it. You'd want to have it booked before you get out there because there's a risk it'll sell out if there are lots of people looking at it.

You can't book it online with Russian Railways. Well, you possibly can, but there's a serious problem with so doing, even if you can. The problem is that that train requires you to collect the tickets from a ticket office. You can't just get on the train with your online confirmation. And by ticket office, I mean a Russian Railways ticket office. In Russia.

Yeah I still think they'll lose to Real in the final but if they don't then fair play.
 
I can admit when I'm wrong as I never expected them to reach the final to be honest. I also don't really care if I said something a few weeks ago that didn't come to fruition so you can bump away
