I remember the old TeamTalk way back in the late 90s/ early 00s. I am sure I posted on that forum they had a few times.

There was an article over the weekend suggesting that FSG were reconsidering the multi-club ownership opportunity again as part of the restructuring process. Not sure if that has any link to any Edwards consultation but thought I would share.

Given the role of fullback is instrumental in how a team sets up and we don't know who will be the next manager/ coach, Id be surprised if we think Robinson is the answer. He's a great athlete, but limited going forward. That may not suit whoever comes in next.

Not sure what else Virgil could say given they only just got the news.

What it does show us is that the ball is firmly in FSG's court. They have lots to do.

Xabi Alonso has to be the clear favourite. Not only is he doing brilliantly at Leverkusen challenging Bayern's supremacy but he's worked under some of the best coaches including Benitez, Mourinho, Ancelotti and Guardiola as a player. Him also having played for Liverpool for 5 years is the icing on the cake. He is one of us, understands the culture of the club, the city and the fan's desire for success.

Put a good structure around him and it's a no brainer.

Also, imagine what impact he could have on the careers of young players like Stefan Bajcetic.

Zidane? Not sure he has the appetite to immerse himself into the club, culture and city. This is a pre-requisite for any Liverpool manager. It always strikes me that he could only ever manage Real, Juventus or France.

Massive well done to the kids and fit seniors once again. It cannot be understated how well they have done over the last 3 games and whenever called upon throughout the season so far.

But, it's time to bring back some of the big guns now. Really hope we see Mo, Darwin and Dom back for the weekend. We need them.

An incredible game. An incredible squad. An incredible club. An incredible manager. And, what incredible fans!

If ever there was a "club win", this was it.

The "Allez, Allez" in extra time was the death knell for Chelsea. The kids literally became 10 foot tall and displayed the confidence of serial winners.

Kudos to Alex Inglethorpe and the academy coaches. I have questioned the quality of the academy in the past but boy was I wrong. There was the debate about loans vs having them around the senior squad, with the level of PL2 football being considered insufficient.

Quansah's first touch after coming on in extra time was to dribble past Nkunku. McConnell spun two Chelsea players in midfield and drove the team forward in extra time. Bobby Clark was tenancious, tidy and played a key role in the play that led to the winning corner. He also got on Chilwell's pip - which was a bonus. Jayden Danns pressed and ran Chelsea's two centrebacks ragged after coming on and almost grabbed a couple of goals. And Harvey Elliott - what a shift. 120 minutes of pure heart and courage!

The senior players too showed their character and leadership. Kelleher should have this cup named after him. What a performance. Diaz ran and ran Gusto into delerium. MacAllister and Endo put in a midfield clinic and fair play to Tsimikas who put in two fabulous corners. And lastly, the captain. The best centreback we are ever likely to see.

Incredible.

It's quite interesting to see the debate about injuries, squad size and game priorities. So many diverse opinions.

From my own perspective, we went into the season a couple of senior players short - a DM and CB. Injuries to Alisson, Matip, Ibou, Thiago, Curtis and Jota were inevitable based on history. I was comfortable with one of Bradley or Ramsay deputising for Trent.

There have been a few good surprises.

1) Quansah has done an excellent job when called upon - negating my concerns about not buying a CB in the summer.

2) I never thought MacAllister could/ would play no6 as well as he has been doing.

3) I never thought Endo would be good enough to play in big Premier League games.

4) I didn't think Bradley was going to be able to show this level of performance already.

5) I didn't expect Curtis to become our best midfielder.

Shows us what do really know about anything!

On whether we have big or small squad. That depends entirely on what you think of the first team quality of the kids. We only registered a 20-man (25 is allowed) squad for the PL, with Gravenberch, Elliott, Bradley, Quansah, Doak, Gordon, Clark, McConnell etc not counting due to being u21.

Was it a conscious decision to rely on the youngsters as much or was it down to not being able to do enough deals in the summer? I don't know.
Once the season started, did they believe that this squad was capable enough to go deep into all four comps? I don't know.

But, here we are.

Good review, Ed. An excellent win and professional performance despite the setbacks.

The injury crisis is really quite concerning now. I have no idea what is going on but the number of players we have out at this critical stage is insane. We cannot afford any more.

It would be the XI that played the CL final in Madrid. Alisson, Trent, Matip, Virgil, Robbo, Hendo, Fab, Gini, Mane, Bobby, Mo.
