Cursed

We are. It's time to accept it. Someone upstairs hates us. It's the hope that kills you.

Is this our 5th final we have lost on the bounce now? Surely our worst run ever?

Just defeatist bollocks really isn't it?

We lost. We didn't have enough. No good moaning or blaming curses. We need to take it on the chin, make the right moves over the summer then go harder and smarter next season.

If we were cursed, we wouldn't have gotten this far AND qualified for next season's Champions League.

We'll strengthen, we'll improve and we'll win.

we are building we are getting better, individual mistakes by players not good enough to be in our team, they will be replaced and we go again

Best player in the world gets injured for pretty much first time all season, a player scores a fucking worldly and your keeper does that. Obviously there isn't a real curse but it fucking feels like it.

Not replacing Phil with another player has left us short. Today it caught up with us.

The Coutinho sale and no replacement, I was pissed at at the time, and I thought we'd got away with as the front 3 stayed injury free until today. Having another player of that type of quality coming on makes a big difference. I like Lallana but he's not at that level and I worry about his performances since the injuries he doesn't look the player he was, and he did very little today.

The reason we have lost out last few finals is because the other team has been the better side and you rarely overturn the odds, today Real Madrid, a couple of years ago Sevilla, Man City in the league cup, Chelsea in the FA cup.

We're back in this next season and we will better. What's the point if you give up hope? Hope keeps us going and it's what it should be.

Yup exactly this!

We lost a final but we also got to a final, that in itself is a massive achievement.

Let's address the lack of quality depth in our squad and look forward to next season. We have Keita who looks a huge step up already

Keita, Allison, Fekir, Tarkowski and Torreira.

The important thing is that this team hasn't reached its peak in terms of being constructed. Even in 2007, it was similar.

We over-achieved this season plain and simple. We weren't trying to build a squad to win the league or Champions League but this and the next window I think we will.

Can leaving is a bit of a blow because it means getting another person in and we don't want to buy too many at one time.

We arent cursed.

We get to support our team in champions league finals. Something 95% of football fans will never do.

Speak to a supporter of a League 1 team and try convincing them we are cursed.

I think I stated we obviously aren't really cursed. However it does feel someone has it in for us by getting so close to doing something mega before the rug is always pulled away. We nearly win our first title for Gerrard to slip which I've never seen the like of and then last night the best player in the world gets injured early doors and your keeper gives away the worst goal in the history of the competition.

It's the being so close that hurts more than just being average. It's like the footballing gods want us to suffer.

If you feel different. Great. Good luck to you. I feel sick to the core today. Nothing will lift my spirits for a good few days or weeks.

Itís the hope that kills you for sure.

This is Klopps team now, and they have only really been together as a core group for one season. The lessons they will learn from the hurt last night will be huge and will make them mentally tougher. We will be stronger next season.

We just have to dust ourselves down and go again. Thatís sport.

Came too early this final I reckon. It may well work out for the best though, new keeper etc. I reckon they'll be stronger for this. We weren't beaten out of sight, just by mistakes

It's never too early to be in a cup final and this is our third in 3 seasons, it's not like it was a new experience for us.

Anything that could go wrong did. Bizarre game. Madrid weren't that good but I did fear bale would run amok. No reason we can't get back into it next year. Need about 4 first team players tho.

That Madrid team was there for the taking, really nothing special anymore and had Salah stayed on I am convinced we would have beaten them before Loris could fuck things up
