How in the World Kimmich,Alaba,Hummels,Boateng,Süle can stop their attack ? Even Shaq is playing like a WC player these days.


It's not like they went against any great defenses though. Napoli's? pft. Against PSG they didn't do much. And the little they did in the first match was thanks to Bernat. And it's not like when someone says "best defenders in the world" anyone thinks about Kimpembe and Thiago Silva.


Neither of any Bayern defenders these days.

The best thing about the draw is to see how some people went from - "We don't need James at all, he can leave in the summer." to " With James back in the team - we have a chance !."

Pathetic. And they were calling that the only "real" fans are from Germany. Learn the club colours first.


Well, yeah, but I'd like to think that they're at least on level with PSG's defense.

But I agree about what you say with James. He was quite easily overlooked until now, but his style of play could be essential against Liverpool. Especially in the first leg. He tracks back and tackles way better than Muller and dare I say Goretzka. I just hope Kovac won't forget about that and chicken out by playing a CM behind Lewa(like Goretzka or Thiago).

i'll repeat myself, but i'm very excited by this tie. I hope and pray we'll play to our highest level and qualify for the next round. We have to avoid the high defensive line, because they can just kick and rush if necessary with a front line of Mane, Firmino, Salah and a substitute like Shaqiri.

We have to play the direct football and try to use counter attacking more efficiently.

Liverpool FC is a very strong team, but i think they would want to give priority to the Premier League.

One could argue that after what happened to them last season they could be hungry to win the Champions League. It's really not uncommon for the losing CL finalist to do well the following season. In fact, the losing finalist rarely if ever get eliminated in the round of 16 the following season.

If we must play vs English opponent than would always choose February as time. This Boxing days, crazy January fixture, plus cold weather will guarantee injures to some key players and some of those will be exhausted. Anyway, Liverpool is thoughts opponent we could draw, their speed and game style just doesn’t suit to us. I’m not so excited with draw, if we don’t improve defence drastically we will not stand a chance against their speed.
Better strategic retreat than dishonorable defeat

Hope Ajax upset Real and Lyon give Barcelona really tough games. Hopefully Juventus too will knock out Atletico. Just want the Spanish “reign” to end ASAP. La Liga and Real/Barça fanboys have been unbearable for the past few years :x

That was meant to say 13th March btw, so much closer to my birthday. I got confused because I was thinking of Liverpool-Man United on 23rd February, the weekend after the first leg.

Does it have anything to do with signing the coach that we were supposed to get?

They've got 39 points in the league, third place and just 5-6 points behind Liverpool and City who are breaking historic records this season. Tottenham are very strong.


Dude... Seriously... Grow a pair... It’s Tottenham... Even we would be favorites and we're way below you guys...

Who knows, we need Robben on the pitch and Ribery on the bench for this match, i wonder how we will play without Müller against Liverpool.
Hopefully James will be back...

Coman, beast on the right, to the left for this weird setup? Why not the other way around?!
