So we find ourselves 1.0 down to Atletico Madrid, but who feels comfortable taking a 1.0 lead to Anfield?
Jurgen Klopp has earned the right to do his own thing. The conventional wisdom at LFC, when the first leg is away, has always been to silence the crowd by focusing on not letting the opposition play and frustrating them into mistakes, but we know that Jurgen Klopp will play to our strengths by playing an open game as opposed to organising around the opposition.
The risk is that if you concede early in a massive oppressive Spanish stadium then the atmosphere and intensity becomes a caldron, as happened in Madrid. For the first time in his career Trent's crossing regularly went astray and we were reminded of his youth. Even Virgil made mistakes. For me the positive was that despite all this we could keep it to 1.0 unlike the away leg in Barcelona last year.
So Mr Wolfe, we sail on through this storm with our heads held high!
