Lol,some people are still thinking Sheriff is some shitty Spezia level team.If they are in Serie A,they would be in contention for European places this season.They went past Shakhtar who is always good in Europe and always in knock out stage of EL at least and they went past Dinamo and Crvena Zvezda (in CL Q),both of them collected 10 points in their EL group and are in knock out stage now.And both teams were in EL knock out stage last season as well.Plus and bonus...win against Real.Away.

Inzaghi achieved great job in CL this season after two seasons of embarassment with Conte (also that loss in EL final and the way we lost was also embarassing if you ask me).Now let's collect some bonus points.

Yea Anfield bud, drop me a DM if you fancy it.

I am not sure of the reliability of this source but..


I hope this does not happen, their stars coming back jaded is more ideal for us.
RMC are the best source in France. It would be just our luck for AFCON to be cancelled when our opponents, both in Serie A and CL, have many African players while we have none.

The African tournament being cancelled has been on the table for a while now.
It probably will be a last minute decision.

Who in particular do you think people have overated?

Just remember a lot of them are part of the treble team, and for those who ain't - Adriano (early days), Ibra, Martins, Crespo, Cruz, Recoba, Maxwell, Figo (first & sec year), Vieira (injured like Vidal and Sanchez these days), Dacourt (as a backup), if you ask me what the team was lacking of, that would probably be a true No.10, hence S10 fitted like a glove and play so well starting form the first game, cause the whole team was built on 4-3-1-2 where the 1 was the only missing piece.

I know there are some that wasn't that great (Old Bobo, Cesear?(winger), WDM, Veron (rebuild time?)), hence the missing playmaker problem, but think about the depth and the overall quality.

P.S. I like Mancini, I don't get the hate for him either, but he wasn't who he is today, and head on giant and knock out stage require something he didn't have back then.
People overrate the entire Mancini team. Mancinis Inter was built to win serie a.

Adriano was world class for about 5 minutes untill his dad died and he lost the plot completely, this is a sad fact. Viera ? ( dude was a crazy waste of money, never regained his arsenal days even at Rube) Martins, Maxwell? Deki? Good players at best. Figo did well despite being old because serie was a backwards league at the time. Why not mention Veron? C. Zanetti, Cordoba, Matrix and others... Good players but hardly better than what the teams who knocked Inter out of the CL had (apart from Villarreal).

Inter had 'good' players, but hardly world class apart from a select few. Adriano for 5 minutes, Zanetti forever and toldo/cesar, Samuel and cambiasso in the last Mancini year (surely WC under Mou).

Valencia in 06/07 who everyone thinks is a great choke by inter had David Villa, Silva, Vicente, Joaquin, Morientes, Angulo, Ayala, Albiol, Baraja etc etc, hardly nobodies and a few would go on to be the best in world.

Inter had the names with Mancio, but the team was built for serie a. Thats why it required half the team to change (and the tactic) for Mourinho to win the CL. Not saying Mancio would have won the CL if he had done the same, but the priority was winning the league at that time and Mancio did just that. No real Inter supporter would disrespect Mancio for what he built back then. Even Mourinho said he basicly won with what Mancio had built in his first season.

If this latest Covid-19 wave continues to increase, I envision new "lock down" protocols disrupting the tournament.

I actually really enjoy watching the AFCON and love the idea of seeing likes of Mane, Salah and Keita go head to head in the tournament. But it seems like madness to try and push ahead with the tournament now.

Anyone know how tickets work? Average price of a knock out game and when they may be released.

I've seen one site selling them from £192 at Anfield but I doubt that's a legit site.

Inter site is "coming soon" for home game, I assume closer to the time I will be able to purchase tickets at Anfield the same way?

Any information will be greatly appreciated.

Jurgen thinks he is Pep Guardiola and the tiki taka Barca. Hope we troll them hard.

I laugh when the reporter show the statistic that Liverpool used more pass over 50 meters than Tottenham :D

Not surprising though, the only difference between Klopp and Conte is that Conte sits tight at the back while Klopp attempts to press high up.

Other than than, Klopp and Conte literally play the same way, Klopp just doesn't want to admit it. Klopp's games involve a shit ton of direct long passes and crosses from Trent and Robertson, with Salah and Mane are always on their bikes. Literally the same thing he said about Conte lol.

PSG are favourites, been interesting to see how Mbappe plays with the pressure knowing he is going to Madrid in the summer, man city should be good enough to win v Sporting but it's one of those game you could see ending in a draw.

Stoked to have the champs league knock outs on, can't wait to watch the games.
