Ancelotti: “Why did we [with Klopp] smile at the end when we shook hands? Because I told him: ‘Don’t you worry, if you lose in Naples, then you end up winning the Champions League.” Lets hope turns true!
In my opinion, VAR is an absolute joke. And for those of you who are going to say that I’m only saying this because it’s gone against us this time, that’s not true. It’s been used horribly all season with officials just hiding behind the phrase ‘it’s not a clear and obvious error’. Well that’s a load of bullsh*t because VAR has been introduced to make the right decision not just to back the on-field referee’s decision time and time again. Whilst it was meant to eradicate any controversy what it’s actually done is made the game more controversial as they can’t even make the right decisions with the new technology. If you ask me, what the VAR officials should be doing is just reviewing all the decisions and making the correct ones instead of only looking for ‘clear and obvious errors’ because at the moment they’re just using that term as an excuse as they don’t want to overrule the referee. And so far this season I haven’t seen a single referee come and take a look at the pitch side screens. If they’re there then they may aswell use them? Tonight is a prime example of where VAR has cost us. To the naked eye, yes it may have looked like a penalty but after watching the replays I think we could all see that there was minimal contact and that the only thing the player was looking for was a penalty. So why didn’t VAR overrule it? Anyway reds, What are you thoughts on VAR? #LFC#YNWA
La technique de Koulibaly pour essayer d'arrêter Salah 😂😂😂
VAR = Joke of the Season 🤡
They need to learn how to use it before they implemented it into big games 🏆, it’s caused a problem with EVERY SINGLE CLUB 😤
The Klopp effect 🤪🔴 #LFC

Personal thoughts on the game > I thought that overall we were the better side! No way that is a penalty calejon clearly dived as there was no contact from Robbo what so ever. The front three had a couple of chances for instance Mane should have made the simple pass to salah and firmino had a three on two situation and chose to shoot. Van Dijk is human after all 😂. Onto Chelsea we go COYR 🔴 #LFC
FT: Napoli 2-0 Liverpool. The toughest game of the group stage is now out of the way. We lost to a dive and a mistake. Thoughts on the game❓👇
FT - NAPOLI 2-0 LFC.
After a somewhat solid first-half from Liverpool, it’s all fallen apart in the Naples. Klopp’s side looked comfortable throughout, but two moments of sloppy defending have cost the Reds a first win in the 19/20 UCL season. Dries Mertens handed Napoli the lead with a powerful penalty after Andy Robertson’s loose leg brought down Callejón in the box. Then came a rare error from Virgil van Dijk. The Dutchmen’s loose ball was met by Fernando Lorente who poked the ball into the back of the net.
Consequently, Liverpool leave Italy with zero points on the board and another away group stage loss. If anything, tonight’s a reality check for the European Champions. We’ve strolled through the Premier League so far but we’ve been tested tonight and we’ve suffered.
Thoughts on tonight, Reds?
FT: #Liverpool vs. #Napoli
It wasn’t to be tonight, we struggled in the tough conditions and were so unfortunate to lose the game to a dive and a single mistake. Heads up though, we must move on as it’s only the first game! Lots of time to turn it around. The lads need to move on quickly and get ready for a huge test at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League. We move. 🔴 #LFC
FT: Napoli 2-0 Liverpool
📝 Well then... looks like our away form in the Champions League group stages continues😕😔🤦♂️
Long story short, there is a lot of controversy around the penalty and I would like to know what you guys think down below but either way, we were not the same clinical Liverpool side that a lot of teams fear to face
I don’t know whether it was the atmosphere, the heat but it just wasn’t our night I guess. Congratulations to Napoli but just know it’s an all out brawl when they come to Anfield
No need to enter panic mode as this was our toughest match in the group and in a way, it’s a positive to get this game out the way and fully focus on the rest💪
Heads up reds🙏 We move on...
Thoughts on the game🤔💬⬇️
HT: #LFC 0-0 #Napoli
• Been given a real run for our money so far in Naples with Napoli playing really well
• Fabinho & Matip are on fire
• Koulibaly’s a god
• Firmino’s header was SO. CLOSE.
• Let’s not concede a jammy last minute goal this time, thank you.
First half thoughts Reds? 😂👇
HT - NAPOLI 0-0 LFC.
It’s been an end-to-end, free-flowing game to watch in the Naples with neither team breaking the deadlock. Napoli have put the Reds defence under pressure, with Adrian having to be called into action a number of times to make some crucial stops. At the other end, Liverpool have given Napoli things to think about with the best chance falling to Roberto Firmino. The Brazilian’s header bouncing past the post towards the end of the first forty-five. It’s anyone’s game right now. 👊🏼🔴
Level at the break. First-half thoughts??
HT:0-0. It’s goalless at the break. Thoughts reds? #LFC#YNWA
