    I don't think we can complain. We took City to penalties and after that it's just a lottery.

    Yeah rival fans are gonna laugh but it's not like we lost 4-0. Gutting to lose on penalties but both teams really put heart and soul in to the game.

    City's experience and quality shone through in the end but the lads can hold their heads up high. They did themselves proud.

    Strange that our primary penno takers didn't go up first. Coutinho's always been **** at penalties, Lallana looks fragile (and weak) as ****, Lucas doesn't fill me with the most confidence either. Even Can I wouldn't exactly back 10 times out of 10.

    We've had a damn good time with shootouts through our history, not that bothered. Bit annoyed because now we don't have an easy rebuttal to morons who'll point to our league position as an indicator of Klopp's quality.

    Henderson overrated, shouldn't have became captain imo. Can't even step-up to take the 1st pen.

    Yea I would've thought Milner, Henderson and Sturridge were first choice to take one..

    Sturridge is terrible at pens and wouldn't be confident enough to take one.
    Milner will surely have been 5th.

    Henderson as captain should've really stepped up. Not a nice thing to say but I've been doubting him as captain for a little while. Sometimes I question whether he's good enough to be in our side consistently like Gerrard was.
    He still has time and we've seen how excellently he has progressed, however I occasionally have my doubts.

    Although I don't think the stutter step penalty is the best approach, obviously it works for some, but ffs surely when you give it a pause like that with your body angle suggesting you're going to kick it towards the left (keepers perspective) and keeper starts to move that way, you don't....kick it right there.

    Still though very close, I honestly thought before the game city were going to win by a 2 goal margin.

    Thought you played well and should have nicked it at the end of ET. Always favoured City on pens and their quality shone through. Worried about the effect this will have on the league game though, they'll be more confident of their chances now.

    I;m probably just assuming since he's a striker he'd be good. He had cramp or something which wouldn't have helped either. Maybe it was Henderson's heel problem which meant Klopp/he didnt volunteer?

    He'd still be my first choice CM in our squad. The heel problem is really affect his game which is a shame.

    Come on man, don't act like you're some kind of prophet for predicting an obviously superior side to win a game.
    I agree that they had plenty of chances and we rode our luck. However we could've won it in ET. They won on penalties.

    I have great respect for Kompany in the post-match interview. He said that you never want to win it on penalties; it's the most unfair way to win a game. City won the game and will go away with the Silverware and in a few years, many non-Liverpool fans will forget we were finalists.

    Mock us if you like but I couldn't care less. Always disappointing to lose but the lads should be proud of their performance, especially Lucas.

    Best thing we can do is sing our heart out at Anfield and get some revenge next week.

    Kompany really is a good guy. One of the most respectful players I've ever seen and he has immense quality to match it.

    Nice to see Pellegrini win a trophy in his last season. He has been treated terribly and (although it's at the expense of Liverpool) I'm really glad he has some silverware to end his management at City.

    It's players/managers like that which make it hard for me to dislike City.

    Kompany has really made a difference to their defence although they congested the centre and forced us outwide where we have little quality in. A Coutinho, Firmino and Sturridge attack has no width really, we really need a quality winger.

    Agree with Lucio, I like Pelligrini and thought he was treated harshly. Glad that he atleast won a trophy and can leave City with his head held high after a difficult season.

    Agreed, top class from him to commiserate the Liverpool players before celebrating.

    That's what I really like in a player or manager. He doesn't have to do it, he wants to.
    He understands how it feels to lose in a tournament. If you win the trophy, you'll have time to celebrate for the next year.

    If your opponents push you that far, it's a real class act to show respect to them. Especially in a modern game where the word has little meaning anymore.

    Best moment of his career and it probably won't get any better.

    The guy was touted as the weak link in the build up and has been living in Hart's shadow for an age. For him to be the hero and have the spotlight is something he'll never forget.

    Fair play to City. I never like to see us lose to a rival but I can tolerate losing to them the most. Maybe it's the added effect of them not having many fans on TSR.

    Huh? Stop being bitter. All I said was that you had no chance to win the COC and yet you kept saying you had a chance. Rival fans taking the piss is part and parcel of football. The same will happen when we knock you out the EL .
