Liverpool fans who reminisce fondly about past European triumphs always seem to forget how their team often played to achieve them. Cynical thuggery was frequently a part of it & the change to the rule allowing infinite back passes to the keeper also blunted the team’s ability to shamelessly waste time towards the end of games.
It sticks in the craw a bit to hear them now mithering on about how hard done by they were last weekend.
They’d made their predictably lively start but hadn’t made a breakthrough. There’s not much reason to suppose the outcome would have been hugely different had Salah stayed on. The pressing can’t usually be sustained for much longer than 30 minutes or so. I suspect RM would have slowly taken control. But doubtless for many Liverpool fans it’ll always be the ‘we wuz robbed’ narrative that persists rather than ever accepting they were beaten by a better team.
