Two absolute comical keeper errors.

Liverpool started off v well untill Salah had to go off.

Felt sorry for the keeper. Nothing went Liverpool’s way. I actually thought Ramos did a nasty cynical job on Salas. I got the feeling that, even if all things were equal, the ref would have given Liverpool nothing. They never really had a chance, and as soon as Salas left the field they were never going to be good enough.

I put some bets on for family (who lost), meaning I got a free £5 in play bet. Was torn between Salah, but put Benzema on 😀

Karius😳!!! f*****g hell!!
Gave it all away.
I hear he went to shake the ref’s hand at the end of the game and missed.

I don’t know how he can get over that!

Rumours abound that the bin dippers are looking to sign Aussie cricketer Bancroft for the coming season ..... he knows how to make a ball work for him & his team:eek:

They've deleted the tweet now but Morecambe's Twitter was amusing.

Basically, Morecambe joked they'd been offered Karius but said no thanks. Some Liverpool fans took offence so Morecambe's keeper Barry Roche then tweeted that he had 4 missed calls from Klopp.

So the second best team in Europe have got the worlds worst goalie.
Can’t say I feel sorry for them.

Liverpool’s weakness’s were just to much for them to beat a fading Madrid side, a clown in goal and a bang avererage centre midfield were to much for an excellent attack to carry over the line and actually win something. I thought at times you could see why Liverpool finished fourth and miles off the title last season, they are a bit one dimensional.

Madrid have just won it 3 times in a row yet you don’t see anyone rushing to call them a truly great side, in truth they are behind Barcelona and Man City for me at the moment, which sort of shows why the champions league is failing at the moment and viewing figures are down, it’s a very glamorous cup competition but Europeans prefer league competitions to the US model of a big final game, think Wenger was right in one of his final interviews when he said we will soon have a European league.

I agree. Ramos fouled Salah and then twisted his arm to send him to ground with more force than was needed. Whilst I’m sure he didn’t mean to injure Salah, in the end it was an unnecessary act. For Egypt’s sake and for Salah’s I hope he can make it to the World Cup. It would be a shame for Egypt to finally qualify but not have their best player in attendance.

Karius has been a weak link all season. Keep that squad together, get rid of Karius and Lovren and sign a reliable partner for Van Dijk and a new ‘keeper and Liverpool will improve on that fourth place finish.

I will never tire of seeing pompous Liverpool fans complaining after they bottled it again in the big games. Fair play to Morecambe for bringing them down a peg or two

They’d have won that with Eastwood in goal ;)
And saved themselves a few million probably!

Find it difficult wanting Liverpool to win after they deprived me watching Oxford in Europe with my late father in the 86/87 season. The only chance I ever had. Yes, it's a long time to hold a grudge but not up to Sarge's standard in the Ledson thread.

Anyway glad the Champs League is over as it's probably been holding up a few KR signings!

You mean a Europa League?
