    Indeed

    As with the WC draw though, the wait for the matches themselves seems huge

    I'm sure you'll be fine

    Unless of course you go two up at home against ten men and need to rely on Messi to covert a penalty...

    First time in 60 years in the last 8 of the European cup. Fantastic effort to go along with the recent Europa league domination as well.

    I hope Sergio Ramos chokes on his medal and dies.

    Deliberately injuring a player. Ridiculous play acting. There’s no low this motherf**ker won’t stoop to.

    If anyone deserves a leg-breaker, it’s him.

    Has been getting away with shit like that for years.

    Feel for our defence. Scoreline doesn't reflect how immense they were.

    Apart from those 2 f**k ups, he was ok. Made a few good saves, but yeah no keeper should make those mistakes.

    Back four were magnificent. Lovren had Ronaldo in his pocket. Was also great for our goal.

    What killed us was the gulf in quality in central midfield. Karius is a disaster in nets, so he will need replaced, but when he made that first error, the passing stats were..

    Madrid - Liverpool
    338 passes - 159 passes
    91% passing accuracy - 78% passing accuracy

    They were dictating the game, controlling it in midfield. Henderson, Milner...thanks for the fantastic effort lads, love both, but not good enough at this level. Modric strolled through that game. Keita to come, and hopefilly Fekir too, we will see a massive upgrade in our performance next season.

    Someone really needs to keep close to Karius he looked broken. This stuff can haunt a person for years. Everyone at that club needs to support him, especially with all the backlash he will get from so called fans. Never wanted them to win but, feel really for him. The backlash has already started on Twitter. No game is worth the mental health of one person.
