Reds Preparing For Away Tie Like Other European Away Games

Makes sense to me. Means the players get used to the pitch before the match. Also they can experience the atmosphere, seeing as that doesn’t change much regardless of the stands being empty or full.

Manchester United 1, Liverpool 1 (agg: 1-3): Man of the Match

Luis Suarez Dentist: Yep I saw that [European Capital of Trophies] banner!
I thought it may have been as homage to Howard Webb (he was part of the BT commentary team)
Cos let’s face it, Utd have won diddly squat since Howard retired!

WelshRed: It’s always tough for a team to reestablish their identity when their best player retires.

"Random draws"

well you can't have your cake and eat it...

i say this is the EL’s way of payback for having such an easy round of 16 match up.

What a great fucking story its gonna be
First we beat Manu , our biggest rivals
Then BVB , klopp ’s former team and quite possibly the best side left
Then someone else
And then sevilla , the perpetual EL champions!
Bring it on...

Jürgen Klopp "Happy" to Face Old Side Borussia Dortmund

excellent sentiment chuck.

this is so, so great, something that genuinely brings a smile to my face. everything about the premier league and so much of liverpool’s season has been about cynicism, even after klopp’s arrival at times, but this is something that should be a fantastic occasion. just seems like such a positive feeling toward the tie and clubs from both sides. something i’m very much looking forward to and will likely remember long after this season regardless of the outcome.

I just elect to read this banner as a reference to last week’s on-the-pitch performance, and then I’m a lot less angry.
