Maybe my comments have been misunderstood? I'm really happy with the way things are going at LFC (who wouldn't be?) but agree with Eddy in that starting with Studge (and possibly Lallana) may have given us the early breakthrough that's needed in a tricky cup tie like that. Result - the extra fixture that JK wouldn't have wanted.
Ernie, you may have a point - we may have had it too good; both historically speaking and since Jurgen has taken over the reins. I'm not a fickle fan who immediately berates the team/boss as soon as something goes wrong and apologise to all if my post gave that impression. That said, I still feel a slightly stronger starting line-up was a better idea - and that was said before the game without the gift of hindsight.
On to Wednesday. Not a lot to say really. Possession stats were great but without penetration they mean nowt at the end of the day. Thankfully Karius redeemed himself after some howlers earlier in the season - it's probably down to him that we're still in the tie. So, we come back to Anfield to a second leg of a semi final trailing 1-0 - here's hoping Southampton get what Villareal got in the same circumstances in May then.
