Top stuff last night...despite 2 goals let in i think we look way better in defence than last yeat. Karius will settle and knows he has too because Mignolet wasn't the usual shambles in the cup.
Henderson looks reborn, not having to emulate stevie g and do hollywood crosses. Quiet and disciplined.
Our front four are awesome.
Palace is always a bogey team for us and in the end we were comfortable.

For once we couldnt even blame mignolet or moreno....everyone went missing today. Firmino and coutinho can be brilliant on their day but they don't like it up them....both found wanting and thus completely useless.
The stats laughably said Goal attempts Burnley 3 and Liverpool 23 but all of our shots were half assed and wild. I get the feeling sometimes that Sturridge, Firmino and Coutinho are just happy to have a strike and aren't particularly bothered when it doesnt hit the target.
We can't play all of our fancy dan players if we're up against a defensive team. We need some steel there.
We never seem to learn.

Agreed Tes and looking at our last 10 games they seem to be very winnable...With no European games that could be perfect to get top 4.

Should be a full strength team tonight and so an image of the team for Seville!
I fully expect us to win tonight against a Chelski team already on the beach.

We were immense last night...Can, Milner and Sturridge all played their part. Henderson might be back as well which will keep the competition keen, i can't see him getting in this team though.
When Klopp manages to bring in his own players next season will be very interesting indeed.

Hmm ok, well we were kinda unlucky with that one! But even though Lallana was on side he'd probably still fluff it in the end if the whistle didnt go.
I hear Coutinho felt ill at half time, big loss.
But Jurgen messed up badly on bringing on Benteke rather than Sturridge. What's the point with 4 mins to go anyways???
Villareal were well organised and a little dull.
Now if we play at our best then we'll give them a game at Anfield.

Great articles Tes and agreed that Kenny should get a knighthood. Can't see it happening though, as it would highlight that the establishment had covered up one of the worst tragedies in British history.
As you say, those officers should now be put on trial.
Some awesome tributes from the majority of our players...oh, apart from Owen our first international representative who's more bothered about screaming kids.

First time in it's history that Liverpool have ever won a game coming from behind with 10 men!
Rode our luck a tad though, has to be said.
 :D ;D

Sarah Winterburn pretty much says it all...

'When your best player over 120 minutes is the goalkeeper solely responsible for the opposition’s only goal, it’s fair to say that you have failed to produce a performance worthy of a cup final. Simon Mignolet’s only real competition for that ‘accolade’ was a combative midfielder playing out of position at centre-half. Liverpool’s perceived weaknesses were rare strengths on a day when their lack of real quality was painfully laid bare.

The first 83 minutes with not a single shot on target despite dominating possession against a sloppy Manchester City side will be Exhibit A in Jurgen Klopp’s campaign to make significant changes this summer. Significant not in terms of quantity – his comment that “seven sounds a lot” when discussing Liverpool’s previous summer business revealed much – but significant in terms of quality. This deeply average squad of players needs an upgrade.

Liverpool have a captain who would be a useful squad player at any of the clubs they should be battling for the title; they have a vice captain who was a useful squad player at one of those clubs. Together they do not have the vision and creativity of the man they have replaced as captain and player. Together they epitomise this Liverpool side. Honest, good professionals but not men to build a team around. They are career followers thrust into leadership.

Henderson touched the ball more times at Wembley than any other player on the pitch and yet I cannot recall any of those 107 touches. I remember some enthusiastic pointing, some vehement appealing and some excellent running after Philippe Coutinho when he scored his equaliser, but there’s a gap where memories of a captain’s performance in a cup final should be.

When your ‘leaders’ are so uninspiring, you almost forgive Coutinho for his anonymity before the goal, Roberto Firmino for his fade to grey after a fizzing start, Daniel Sturridge for being infuriatingly wasteful in possession and Milner for simply being Milner. Robbie Savage spoke about Liverpool’s vice-captain in glowing terms as a 7/10 player in a way that only a 6/10 player can. But Liverpool are not a 7/10 club and the fans have a right to expect better.

Firmino, Coutinho and Daniel Sturridge (when fit) are players worthy of a better Liverpool side, while Emre Can will undoubtedly improve under Klopp’s tutelage. But neither Henderson nor Milner will now become better footballers; they have peaked as willing runners, good professionals and all-round good guys. If there is room for both of them in a first-choice Liverpool side next season then Klopp has failed.

After inheriting a flawed squad in mid-season, Klopp was given a free pass that almost ended in an unlikely trophy. He almost succeeded where Brendan Rodgers failed with a combination of enthusiasm, energy and bear hugs; next season he will be judged on his own team’s recovery from extensive summer surgery. Scalpel please, nurse; there could be significant blood lost.'

Agreed Martin as I thought Lucas and Toure played really well...we have moved on from panic in our defence but let's face it Mignolet should not be our first choice keeper. To give him credit though he did then keep us in the game. He's hugely frustrating but i just dont think he has the strength in his hands to keep balls out.
Lallana made a huge difference and should have been brought on for a thoroughly crap Firmino asap. I think the pairing of coutinho AND firmino is a luxury.
Sorry but Henderson and Milner are not our future and as soon as both are replaced the more the better.
All in all, we rode our luck and then played well after 70 minutes or so and should have buried them.
No disgrace going out on penalties as lets face it we've had good fortune there before.

I hope to feck Ward plays in goal for the West Ham game...there's no point in Mignolet being there.
The 77 minute walk out was all well and good but it completely undermined our team. Next time we should wait til the 93 rd minute when we're 2-0 up. We might actually win then.

Maybe we can sell him to China?
