Harvey Elliot? Is that a disrespect move or a glaring opportunity for Vidal to smash someone all over :lol:

The kid is quite a talent, and the most attacking of their midfield options. Think of him as their Frattesi, in England kids get their chances at an younger age.

If Klopp was Italian this Elliott kid would have been on loan in some Championship side.
He was at Blackburn then came back and played astonishingly well and Klopp kept him in the squad instead of another loan, he is a huge talent.

Again Dzeko. I'm start to get annoyed with this constant use of 36 years old player as starter almost every game.

Is he a high pressing midfielder ? The same way Allegri and Pioli fielded Kulusevski and Kessie to f*ck with Brozo?

The only reason i am not annoyed with Dzeko starting again is he scored in the last 3 times he faced Liverpool.

That's a good question, he's a natural winger, right side.. be interesting to see how he plays I feel like he will be used as an AP on the right between Salah and TAA.

Never know might see you at Anfield for a pint!

And yes big decision for Elliot starting, enjoy your night.
Gave up my ST in 2007 mate tbh, my last venture with the reds was week in Athens for CL final 07. Had a visa to emigrate to Aus, but the recession hit and we never got to go. NO chance of getting a ST now. Cheers though Sawyer, no probs having a beer in town if you come here. Tara mate

I really hope BAstoni and Perisic are on their top form today because this game is gonna be a long one if they're not.

I can only imagine (and hope) bastoni and skriniar are instructed to stay back at all times and no maurading runs forward, as good as they are, especially basto. Or else that is just suicide.

Excited. We need massive games from all players to get through here, but we can do it.

Enjoy boys, let's hope for a positive result and worst case scenario, not a disgraceful result

Puccini's "Le Villi" almost done, phone off, Campari and soda poured. Let's go and make some history! FORZA INTER!

With Elliot I expect Liverpool playing full speed from beginning, Mane and Salah run wider, open space for Elliot to exploit

Maybe not an ideal time or place to say, but Inter fans, along with several other Italian fanbases, generally like Liverpool for... 1985. Ugly truth moment.
Curva Nord has been chanting "Liverpool" for decades during Juventus games just to spite them.

And now it's become a thing against Milan fans for the 2005 final.


Liverpool fans have been clashing with Roma and Juventus fans a lot in the 80s so since Inter fans didn't encounter this they have developed a soft spot.

So yeah, this respect stems mostly from a very cynical and crappy situation rather than anything else. But Inter fans generally are respectful of opposition as long as they don't give them a reason. But I'm pretty sure that Liverpool fans were met with a lot of love from our ultras for the Juventus backstory and maybe slightly more from the average fan for the Milan final.
I was at Heysel unfortunately, and stopped going the match after that for 4 years. It's a sickening memory, I started going again after Hillsborough. Roma fans seem to like attacking ANY fan, we had this with them since we beat them in their own stadium to win the Euro Cup. When the Roma fans were slashing and attacking even family groups. Juve I understand their hate, for obvious reasons. The main trouble between Lpool fans and Italian clubs 'recently' is with Napoli though, really bad relationship.
Lfc fans attacked and stabbed in Naples, so revenge was sought in the home game. Napoli fans were jumping into taxi's to get away, but were dragged out of the taxi's and beaten up. Fckin stupid, needless tit for tat violence, I prefer having a bevvy with the opposition and seeing how they view things, for a change
