I never got the chance to visit the site last night so I've just enjoyed about 2 hours of reading all your posts haha

There's nothing I can add that hasn't already been mentioned. One thing I want to say is I've been openly critical of matip and origi regularly. I feel it's only fair I put my hand up and say matip has been quality the last 5-10 games.

Origi has just contributed directly to 2 HUGE results this week so I'd like to show my respect to those 2 boys, excellent moments they've produced and I'm glad to eat my words.

Big love for hendo too, a proper gutsy captain who's leaving everything on the field for that liverbird upon his chest.

{Ed025's Note - i agree with all of that har..

I was thinking about big Divoc yesterday. Has one player scored so many vital goals in one season. I think I am right in saying he has score 5 goals this season and of those 5 one was against Everton off the bench to win it in the 93 rd minuet, one was against Newcaslte (off the bench I think I can't remember) to win it in the 88 th miniet, two against Barcelona to take the tie away from them. So 80% of his goals this season have been crucial match winners. That's some record and I for one hope he gets a new deal and keeps that record up.

Ed 25, do you agree with the Henderson bit? Not a dig, you did change your opinion on Fabinho when you got to know him. Lol.

{Ed025's Note - i have always admired his passion and work rate robbo,for me he lacks the quality that would make him a shoe in as a midfielder at a top side but i suppose you need a work horse in there and hes certainly that mate..

What a rollercoaster the last few days have been. I was a dejected mess yesterday morning and was sat between 2 workmates who were throwing various LFC related memes and taunts back and forth. You could hear a pin drop in here today!
The game was a complete team performance of which even individual played their part. They gave it their all and it paid off with a second chance to grab the most illustrious award you can get in football. There were some huge game defining moments that would be easy to miss watching the game first time round caught up in the frantic display. I have never seen a game with this many crucial moments, let alone ones that come out our way.
Allison produced 5 of the most important saves of his career last night and they came in all different forms. The 1st save vs Messi’s whipped shot into the top corner was the easiest of the lot but still had to be made, these goals go in often enough if you are caught sleeping. The 2nd save vs Coutinho’s low curled shot from just inside the 25-yard box, not only did he manage to get gown quickly but he could have easily pushed this back into the path of the oncoming attacker, instead managing to push it just out of reach of Suarez. The 3rd was another low save this time from Suarez aiming for the opposite corner, he got down low and fast. The 4th save from Alba 1 on 1 with big hand down to his left to snuff out the shot was pure goalkeeper instinct, made himself a mountain. Then the 5th from Suarez again on the half volley at the near post. Thankfully it was straight at him but we have seen De Gea concede this type of goal twice recently and the ball often goes through the legs. Outstanding keeping today, busiest game he has had so far in a Liverpool top.
Trent Alexander-Arnold, my word, what a player this lad is turning out to be. The praise is heaped on him week after week and its clear for anyone to see why. His fizzed in low cross for Gini’s first goal is a fairly routine low driven cross into the box which we have seen repeatedly from the lad this year. With the number of decent crosses in, it’s no wonder he is the highest assister we have, this was just another to add to the tally. Then of course there was the quick freekick, I'm inclined to agree with Suarez on this one, Barcelona defended like schoolboys and that was possibly the cheekiest goal to have ever happened in a champions league semi-final. If this happened in training it would be “bants”.
Matip’s tackle on Messi as he was strolling into the box was THE defining moment for me. 99/ 100 times Messi is putting that away and its lights out for Liverpool. I think a goal at that stage and the need for us to now score 5 goals in total to win would have completely derailed us, it would have been a different game and this was true for all of their chances but this one looked certain to go in. His trailing leg not only stopped took the ball from Messi but also avoided conceding a penalty, lucky or unbelievably well timed? Matip also made a very necessary tactical foul on Messi to stop him in his tracks whilst bearing down on goal in full “Messi mode”.
Robertson made 2 clearances that completely cut out any chances for a goal. The 1st he confidently volleyed out of danger a pass across goal to an oncoming Vidal, you have got to be aware and you have got hit that right, he did both with ease. The second was a lofted ball into the path of Suarez who he managed to out muscle and toe poke out of play. It’s the type of pass Suarez loves to latch onto. Played his part well and made way for Gini.
Henderson’s dribble through 2 defenders to take a shot and hand it on a plate for Origi’s opener. That goal for me encapsulates everything that Henderson is, determination and willpower to pick us up by the scruff and get us going when needed, and boy did we need that opener. That small passage of play was the closest we have seen to the type of pick me up Gerrard produced time and time again. Nothing amazingly silky and special, just determination to get the ball in the net with clever passes and runs. “A captain’s goal”.
Fabinho made 2 tackles on Messi as he was charging at goal, similar to the tackle Matip made but without the foul and yellow card that proceeded it. It’s the difference between him and Fernandinho who he has often been compared to. Fernandinho AKA the “smiling assassin” uses tactical fouls constantly to break up play but seems to simply get away with it by helping the player up and smiling his way out of trouble, it’s ludicrous. I stopped counting how many times a game this would happen after I found I was becoming incensed watching him game after game rack up yellow card worthy challenges and getting a yellow at worst after the 4th or 5th time when he should already be off. However, Fabinho consistently makes clean tackles and uses his strength and size to take it from players, and yes, he is prone to yellows too but on a more consistently normal degree compared to Fernandinho. Don’t get me wrong though, I know Fernandinho is a quality player.
Origi had an unbelievable game for somebody who was loaned out last year and seemed to no longer feature in our plans, I bet he does now. This is Barcelona we were playing against and he came out swinging from start to finish and wreaked so much havoc, it was easy to forget that we were missing Salah and Firmino. Mane largely contributed to the freedom Origi had but you cannot take anything away from him, in the right place at the right time TWICE.
Lastly there is Genius ‘Winning’aldum. To come on at half time and bang in 2 goals in 10 minutes against one of the worlds best teams is monumental and a fair reward for the effort he has put in this season. I particularly liked the way that after the 4th goal he was closed down in midfield, evaded one player and held off 2 more only to completely humiliate them with a turn through the middle of them and set up yet another attack. I watched his post-match interview in which he goes on to explain that he was fairly miffed with the gaffer for benching him. I'm not surprised with the fire that was burning in his belly.

My man of the match was definitely Alisson. Scoring 4 goals is a huge collective achievement and was orchestrated by players all over the pitch but Alisson singlehandedly stopped 5 potential goals of which Barcelona only need 1 to go in to kill the game off. If you had asked anyone whether we were going to keep a clean sheet against Messi, Coutinho, Suarez and Vidal I would have told you to give your head a wobble.

Well written and some crucial moments here.

I’ve always been a big fan of Hendo, but this game was another level from him and he gave a captains performance every bit as influential as Gerard in the 2005 final. You could almost see Barcelona wilting in the face of his sheer will to win.

Is Divock Origi the best striker in the world right now? I don't care what you say cause he is :D

Way to step up on such a big occasion.

What a team, what a performance. Amazing night. Also its all about small details but even the ball boys contributed last night in getting the ball back into play quickly. Special shout out to the ball boy for the 4th goal, getting the ball to Trent early and making sure the other ball was off the pitch, so he could take a quick corner. I think he should claim Half an assist.
