Blimey has this week dragged! Tomorrow is the day!

Stressed? Yes Excited? Yes Confident? Yes Worried? Yes Nervous? Yes damp.

Think you all get the picture!

Hope everyone enjoys Kiev! Anyone else watching it in London?

Ed, ever hear of any managers going outside their coaching group e. g. to other managers for opinion on opponents prior to huge matches like this?

{Ed001's Note - yes mate it happens a lot for big games.}

I think one of the Ed’s gave a good example a few years back when Marcelo Biesla advised Rodgers to try play a Diamond formation the season we nearly won the title.

OK, to while away a few more minutes, share the superstitions/ habits you go through in he run up to a massive game?

Me? Watching at the same pub I watched the 2005 final, with the same group of lads. I will also call my mate in Oz at the end of the game, albeit it might cost a little less now! Was going to get a new top to wear, but remembered I didn't wear 'colours' last time. I'll be asking my boy to make sure he sleeps in his Liverpool kit tomorrow night.

Ed001, I know you have a few, so don't be shy!

I have a 1998 Liverpool jersey that I wore for the last champions league final and the FA cup against west ham.

I try not to wear it too often so the luck doesn't rub off but I will be wearing it tomorrow night.

This shirt was also a little bit too small for me when I was wearing it at as a 14 yr old so safe to say that I look ridiculous in it now but we all have to do our bit!

I listened to the game on a car radio in Amsterdam with my dad, was great. I was 13 and we were going mad during the shoot out, must of looked mad to passers by pulled up screaming and shouting that late at night, not really a ritual but it was fun.

I changed my from my local in 2005 and went with a crowd to a busy pub. At half time and 3 nil down i went back to my local depressed but boy did that turn out to be one of the greatest nights ever. Staying in the local this year and hopefully boxing the ceiling in elation come the end of the game again. Come on you reds!

05 I was on military exercise with the air force. No tv. No radio.

Fortunately it was end of exercise and the lovely lads of 216 signals I think had a set up.

Not sure I can personally mobilise the amount of service personnel to recreate that, but if there are any high ranking military or political personnel on here.
You know what to do.

I have no regular superstitions to be honest, except my black third kit! I never wear that because we lose when I do. I wore it for both Go als in Klopp's first season. The Mrs claimed it and it is what she wore when we won the first leg against Roma 5-2. So she is wearing it again. I'll be in my 2016/ 17 home shirt because that is the one I wore on that night.

The 2005 final was the day before my A Level exam! I got the books out at half time and attempted to study from the second half onwards as I thought the game was over. Needless to say I didn't get much studying done!

Maybe I need to get the old text books out tomorrow.

Looks like those Liverpool fans who were stuck at the airport might finally get to Kiev.

Heard some fans were attacked in Kiev last night/ this morning - stay safe lads - in large groups ideally.

On another note, if Klopp wins us that final tomorrow night, I hope he is backed with all the finances he needs (within reason of course) to get in those 3 or 4 quality players to propel us into potential title contenders next season (win or lose actually), he deserves it.

I've never had more faith in one of our Managers since Kenny's first stint and he needs backing from the top now, not just nice words.

I'm not an FSG basher at all by the way, they've turned us around slowly, now they need to push the boat out a little this summer.

Enjoy tomorrow all, hope we annihilate Real and it wouldn't surprise me if we did - bring it on!

Morning eds and reds. Like most on here have such a mixed feeling of excitement and anxiety at present. Whatever the result I'm confident of the lads going out and giving their all.

My one fear is if we are leading by say two goals with ten minutes to go, what changes will be made. I think if we disrupt the front three too much and heaven forbid we concede two, I don't fancy we would have the creativity in extra time to go and get the winner. The way I see it is we have had a two week break, energy banks are full so I'm hoping our front three can play the full ninety just in case. We only seem to concede multiple goals when we start taking them off and this is because the opposition know they can be more adventurous without as much risk of being hit on the break. They're our first line of defence and it shows.

Having said that, Klopp and his tactics and these players have got us to the final so I have to have faith in any decisions they make.

Not long to go now reds, let's hope we do conquer all of Europe.

The anticipation is becoming unbearable. I doubt I’m the only person sat in work doing very little as my mind is focused on other things.

One thing I would like to share which I find interesting. I was born in 1989 during the season we last won the league. I never really liked football as a child/ teenager until I found the pub life at around 17. The first full match I watched was the Champions league final in Istanbul in 2006, whilst I sat there with the pint that my slightly older friends had to buy for me and watched one of the greatest comebacks in history I was hooked on this sport and this club.

5 months ago, on the 3rd of January 2018, my girlfriend gave birth to my firstborn Son Alexander (Xander) . I’m quite a logical thinking un-superstitious science loving atheist so it could only be purely coincidental but still a beautifully crafted coincidence for Liverpool to win a major trophy in the same year he was born like they did when his dad was born 29 years ago.

Maybe it’s the lack of sleep, waking up at 4 in the morning to make a bottle and lull a screaming infant back to sleep or maybe it’s having to listen to Chelsea, Utd and City fans banging on about all the trophies they have won in the last 12 years I have been supporting Liverpool but other than the little gift I was graced with in January, I have never wanted anything more than for our boys to win this competition.

Let’s bring that trophy back home and establish ourselves back among the elite where we belong!

Great stry noshbag, I'm also trying to think of every 'sign' from on high that its our year again!

BTW, was 2005 in Istanbul, so you were only 16 ;-)

Be careful mate - if we go on to win, fellow posters might be demanding you have a child every year to help us push for major honours!

My first game was Istanbul too. I was about 11 I think. I didn't even play football befire then as i quit at about 7 to focus on martial arts.

I remember watching the FA cup final a year later when I understood things a bit more and I just went absolutely nuts when Gerrard equalised in the dying moments.

This club is my life and It has been for pretty much as long as I can remember. I'm certainly not alone in feeling that way either. We are Liverpool!

You are completely right Zeddicus, I was 16 ;) …. shhhhh.

Enjoying these posts,

I was born in 89 too. My dad took me to my first match when i was 7, watched us beat MyPa-47 in a European match. Hooked since that day.

Istanbul was memorable for so many reasons. I missed the first half as I was 'preoccupied' with my then gf (for the first time if you get me, took more like 45 seconds than 45 mins)

Anyway was convinced it was my fault we were loosing for not watching. Then watched us turn it around - best night of my life at the time.

So don't worry boys if we are loosing at half time I'll ask my wife for a new 'first' and we will surely turn it around #an*l ;)

Not quite as sentimental as your story Noshbag.

Allerton, I wouldn't bother mate. That's not all it is "cracked" up to be. Maybe get a couple of her friends to come over, and play in the hole behind a front 3. That sounds like a much better "first". If she cares about You, she'll say yes.

Agree2 0Disagree

25 May 2018 12:12:07
May I suggest, Allerton, that you should have been avoiding any nuptials since we got through to the final. Just to be on the safe side, like!

MK I've tried that one, apparently her sisters don't count as friends in this scenario.

Zed don't worry like a boxer before a prize fight I have everything bottled up, ready for that champagne moment when Bobby scores a no-look and I will explode.

At half time in 2005, my missus said to me, 'Don't worry I am sure they will come back in the second half. '
I kind of scoffed at her and thought 'what do you know? '.
For obvious reasons I hope we are not having that conversation again tomorrow. But if we are, I may take her more seriously this time.

Cannot wait for tomorrow!

Win, lose or draw I am proud of the boys!

Lets support the team no matter what as we know they will be giving their all.

To those of you lucky enough to be in Kiev make sure your support is loud and do us boys proud. Drown out the Real Madrid prawn sandwich brigade and make it seem like a match on Merseyside.

Your support can help bring old big ears home!

Hi guys, where can I watch our match tomorrow in Istanbul Turkey? Any sports bars that will show the match? I can try U2 istanbul Irish pub. Other options would be great. Thanks in advance. Hope we win. YNWA.

Quotes from Anderson Talisca

"There is interest from Liverpool and Manchester United, but there is nothing certain, there is still nothing concrete. At the moment it is speculation. ”.
