Liverpool Through to Quarterfinals, Neutrals Cringe

1647744130 Liverpool Through to Quarterfinals, Neutrals Cringe

Everyone was crying after this match.  Merseyside denizens shed tears of joy.  The Nerrazzuri cried into their cappuccinos.  Neutrals bellowed in agony at having been forced to watch the full ninety minutes.  But, for better or for worse, Liverpool is through to the Champions League quarterfinals defeating Inter Milan 3-0 on aggregate.

Liverpool held a 2-0 lead following the first leg.  They needed only a draw to advance.  If you need someone to cynically conspire to kill an away match in Europe, Rafa Benitez is your man.  Inter’s demise was augured from the outset.

This win, plus an impressive run of league form, should allow Rafa to retain control of his seat’s temperature gauge for now, even with Tom Hicks sultrily dancing for DIC.

Most importantly, however, the Ibrahimovic Stache has supplanted the Rafa Goat as the most faintly frightening football facial hair.
