"I noticed Graeme Souness said afterwards he thought it was my old club's best team since Kenny Dalglish last won the league".
Lots of arm-waving, little noise - it's one of the biggest problems we have with Wembley, and when the crowd is only around 65,000 mark, it's soulless. I am long enough now in this business to know nobody will play the ideal season.

The Brazilian footballer recently received a painful injury at Tottenham Hotspur, during the Saturday's 2-1 win. So we carry on. When Spurs came out the same way for the second half, I knew Liverpool would win the game.
Jurgen Klopp focused on tough roads ahead
Pochettino's side effectively ended talk of a Wembley hoodoo when they beat Jurgen Klopp's team 4-1 last October and the Argentinian is not expecting a repeat of the limp performance at Vicarage Road. Now we have to prove that and do it again and again and again.
"I don't want to be too critical because I don't know exactly how he said it but sitting in an office and talking about football is completely different to doing the job, to be honest".

The Reds captain was on global duty with England during the worldwide break and played a part in both the Nations League defeat by Spain and the 1-0 friendly victory over Switzerland at the King Power Stadium. We've got no excuses this time.
