    Beni I must say I don’t get this wanting to play the big guns. When Hoffenheim came at us they created good chances & while we are very good going forward the top teams will not miss similar chances that they did yesterday. Our defence will get punished by the top teams like Bayern & co, I’ll take the easiest drAw possible.

    Well, that was fun, wasn’t it? As everyone has said above, those first 20 minutes were awesome and Hoffenheim were just blown away. And I have to say that I think the crowd played their part. The atmosphere before the game and during was terrific. Did you go, Beni?

    As for the performance, I thought Moreno was our best defender on the night (never thought I’d say that!), Gini had his best game this season by a country mile, as did Can, but Man of the Match just has to be Sadio. Barca have definitely been chasing the wrong player. On this form he is unplayable.

    My player match ratings

    Migs 5.5 Had one of his less convincing nights, and arguably should have done better with first goal
    Trent 6.0 Terrific going forward, but still plenty to learn defensively (sound familiar!). Regularly skinned by Gnabry in first half
    Matipn 6.5 Doesn’t look certain alongside Lovren. Needs commanding centre back partner
    Lovren 5.0 Should have done better for their 2nd goal. Not had a good start to season, and continued his run here.
    Moreno 7.0 Other than one reckless lunge which he missed and left the left side exposed, he looked solid. Him and Mane electric going forward down left as a partnership
    Can 7.0 Good high energy performance from our German. In the right place for two well taken goals and unlucky not to get a first half hat-trick with shot just wide
    Hendo 6.5 Being picky here, but would loved to have seen him bury it for the 4th when he set up Bobby. His game is not there yet, but improving.
    Wijnaldum 8.0 Was everywhere, and was unlucky not to score. At last the Gini from last season has come back from his summer vacation
    Salah 7.0 His speed is frightening, and well positioned to take his goal. Unfortunate that of our two wingers, he pales in comparison
    Firmino 7.0 Usual hard work and one mazy penalty box run in the first half showed promise. Confident finish

    In summary Forwards 9/10 Midfield 9/10 Defence 5/10 !!

    I don’t mind playing one or two big teams, the whole team lifts for those games, and the whole reason Europe is great is to see those teams play yours.

    In saying that lets at least get a few wins eh!

    Oh yeah Beni, he was pulled apart!

    Oz – I’m with you, I want as easy draw as possible. Would rather play the big guns later in the tournament! I think though it is written in the stars that we will draw Barcelona!

    Any opposition out there is going to encourage a competitive game and one of which can’t be taken lightly.

    The good thing about this is that we now have a manager who I’d imagine is familiar with a lot of European sides, so no doubt, he’ll be using all his experience to prepare us in the best possible way.

    I was thinking the same thing NB, imagine that side last night but with VVD and the Red-Bull lad, you’d be given everybody a run for their money…. I really think it’s time somebody pulled Barca’s pants down and your mob are in a prime position to do it. It would be like Walker-gate but even better!

    Too right Chucky.

    We’d have to luxury of Barca’s money to buy both Naby Kieta and Van Dijk at 75mill each.

    From a business point of view, it’s such a good move as we can lay players like Sakho and Moreno off cheaply to whoever’s interested. They come off our wage bill and Klopp begins to be able inject his own buys and develop the squad.

    I don’t get the ones wanting the easier smaller teams – you want to be in this competition as we consider ourselves one of the big guns and to play europes elite.

    I don’t want us qualifying for first time in years to end up in a group with Europa league standard teams – we may as well stay home and play Everton and Arsenal ??

    Bring them on, and win lose or draw at least we are on the biggest stage in club football
