I don't know about you fellas, but I take great heart from the fact that it was nearly the perfect away performance.

Dude, give over. My sides have only just knitted back together from reading that Sunderland quote for the nth time trying to see what it was I must have missed.

 :D

was it mere coincidence that that fireball streaking across the skies of Russia, occurred at the same time when the Liverpool boss's big head was flying back from Zenith.

In the midst of winter, I finally learned that there was, in me, an invincible summer.

There’s no next time. It’s now or never.

Reckon he starts with something like this! (if Wisdom is fit)
                 Reina
Wisdom, Carra, Agger, Johson
                  Lucas
          Gerrard Henderson
Downing                   Enrique
                 Suarez

if Zenith score, we have to score four.

so, for us to go through, and assuming zenit score......we will have to win 4-1, or 5-2 (if zenith nick a second goal)

but Brendan can only show us the way to the mountain top.  He cannot carry us there.   If we fail tonight, it will be because we did not believe hard enough. 

self-flagellation may be the way to go tomorrow (or Mistress Severe in Soho).

A fantastic fightback but sadly not quite enough. Hats off for a damn good performance. Damage done last week.
Cheers,

Damage was done in the first leg. At least the players gave it a right good go tonight and didn't go out with a whimper.

Great fightback but imagine if we could actually defend.

Proud of the team and Anfield tonight - especially Anfield as I want to the crowd to be like that always.

When Allen and Henderson came off we lost composure in the middle, but if they ran out of puff, then not a lot we can do about that. Hopefully it will reinvigorate Allen to reproduce that on a more consistent basis.

I can only assume like you that Allen and Henderson were getting tired. Can't see Rogers taking them off otherwise. Pity Shelvey didn't have a bit more composure. He could have been the hero tonight. Pleased with Allen. Hope to see more of that in games to come.

At least I got one thing right.  :D We are where we are and we're a tad too lightweight at the moment. With Sturridge and Coutinho we would've strolled past this round so that gives us a hint that some players will be gone in the summer, most notably Downing and Shelvey.

He wouldn't have as we were controlling the game, but with the intensity we produced at the start of the game, the more tired they became - especially as their were the main architects in setting the tempo for the likes of Gerrard, Downing and Suarez and along with Lucas were key in our ball retention.

Oh well. Onwards and upwards!
