Basically the work experience boys got in cos everyone else has OOO set on their emails.

 

Beating Shrewsbury by an OG, what a night at Anfield. Almost up there with the Barcelona game.

 

Cry more.

Was an extremely impressive performance of control and poise for pretty much the entire match.

 

They managed Shrewsbury incredibly well, regardless of the fact the goal was lucky they deserved everything they got tonight.

 

The youngsters regularly in the squad are miles ahead of the rest and that was shown tonight. Chelsea next round will be interesting, I imagine a mix of youth and experience will play and Chelsea will go full strength.

For those who argue the 'VAR luck' need to remember that VAR would have ruled out their penalty in the original tie. So Y'know. ;)

Some points from tonight. 

 

I thought Jones, Williams and Elliott were sublime all night long. Elliott is going to be special if we manage him right and he doesn't have agents in his ear. Sepp Van Den Berg looks like he has improved loads since earlier in the season. That team managed the final 15 of the game really, really well.

 

Some of these players have earned the right to be in the squad for the Chelsea tie. 

 

For all the arguments that Klopp should have been managing that team.. Critchley knows those players inside out and you can tell how together they all are as a unit. Especially at the end of the game. So happy he got to have a moment like that. 

 

That's the magic of the FA Cup for you FA.

Another thing that impressed me was that milner was in the dugout.  He just seems to live football and he's been a real star for the club, fitting into positions as required to help the team and his work rate is first class. 

 

Can't say I expected him to have been important to the team as he has been.

I know he had to move to continue his recovery and get back to his best. But I am so happy to see Ings back to that level. Hope we have some kind of buy back clause he looks like a Klopp player ;)

It would be greedy and ungrateful to wish for much more from this astounding season... but gosh this really was a stupendous almost goal.

BBC have a nice article on Adrian. 

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/51374515

 

After a shaky start as sub, understandable given the situation on the night and with having just joined, he chipped in with some good performances and made sure Allison's absence was a mere blip. Also love that Milner is the club's trophy guardian, probably because no one can outrun him if they take a pot without his permission.

 

And the saltier comments on the article are delicious. Premier League is so poor, standards are slipping and Liverpool would be battling relegation if they were in Serie A, apparently. Bless 'em.

And one from The Guardian, this time about Houllier.

 

Houllier article.

 

Was too young to fully appreciate the tail end of the great 80s sides, only seeing the 88-89 sides firsthand a couple of times, so Houllier’s era was one of the first notable success.
 

That cup treble season was glorious, but also have fond memories of away trips during that period, enjoying players like Gary Mac, the best free agent we’d ever signed until Milner.

 

Houllier always came across as a quietly dignified man, a sort of throwback to a fading era. He was a great servant to Liverpool, and if he hadn’t been followed by Benitez and number five, think he’d be more widely appreciated.

The UEFA Cup final that year was also the first crazy Liverpool game I watched live. I never had Sky growing up so followed the 4-3 games against Newcastle on the radio but that final is still the craziest I’ve ever watched. 2005 was great but you just didn’t know what was going to happen next against Alaves.

This comes from a These Football Times issue solely about Liverpool. Loads of good articles in it and an interview with Carra as well. £10 but i would definitely recommend.

We'll bring someone in this Summer to cover the players we miss in January. No way Michael Edwards and Klopp haven't planned for this.

When asked recently, what my favourite ever Liverpool games was, I picked the Alaves game just ahead of the collymore Newcastle game. I'm pretty sure that on carra's podcast, Stevie pick the Alaves game as his favourite of all time too. I've completely forgotten what happened now so it is due a re-watch but I remember the emotion being the strongest I've ever experienced watching football.

I’m not going to google it but my memory is it was a piece of piss for most of it winning 3-0 or 4-1 and we had a bit of a late defensive collapse for 4-4, then Fowler scored the winner...

Fowler scored Liverpool's fourth.

 

Think the winner was a free kick deflected in.

That's definitely right for the winner, though I can't really remember any of the rest.

 

Wonder what the chances are of our match tomorrow going ahead - low, I'm guessing.

Why would the game be off? The weather at the weekend is bad, granted, but the wind isn't as bad as last week.
