If Liverpool loses Real Madrid in the Champions League final tomorrow then surely it’s time for the manager to jump before he’s shoved.

Reaching the final in all three registered cup competitions and possibly not winning all of them is unthinkable.

It is unacceptable to miss out on the league title with Liverpool’s third-highest total of points since introducing three points for a win in 1981, beaten by just two of their previous three seasons in charge, including the club’s first league title in three decades.

You know what I always say – we should never have gotten rid of Roy Hodgson.

For Liverpool fans, life under Jurgen Klopp has gone from happy to positively surreal.

To be in a position where defeat in a European Cup final could be seen as some sort of underachievement speaks absolute volumes. Klopp has set the bar so high that it requires a pilot’s license.

While defeat in Paris would of course bring tears, an incredible campaign would simply be relegated to a remarkable one.

Every game played. Manchester City odds up to the last matchday. Win both the League Cup and FA Cup in the same season. We are in the land of dreams.

I say ‘we’ because I’m clearly a Liverpool fan, but with as much objectivity as I can muster – not much – I believe the Reds are rightly the favorites to be crowned King of Europe again, buoyed further by the news that the fabulous Fabinho is back in full training and Thiago is looking good to win his own race to be ready.

This certainly puts the balance of an epic battle in midfield back in Liverpool’s favour.

Personally, I’d focus on either side’s right flank, with Dani Carvajal most likely facing the nightmare of instant fan favorite Luis Diaz.

It’s been love at first sight since his arrival in January, and this could be the match we’re talking about when all is said and done tomorrow.

Similarly and worryingly, Trent Alexander-Arnold will no doubt need help to deal with Vinicius Junior, who is no stranger to scoring against Liverpool and another young hero.

Let me stop there though because, Newsflash, I just don’t know.

I can hazard a guess, but there are so many possibilities that in a washing machine of facts and figures, predictions and prophecies, I just get dizzy.

It could be 1-0 with a Virgil header, 3-2 with a Benzema hat-trick, or 2-1 with a late glorious curtain from Divock Origi. Please God let it be the latter.

Or maybe a team comes back from a 3-0 deficit at half-time and wins on penalties. I mean, nobody predicted that when Carlo Ancelotti was leading his AC Milan side in Istanbul in 2005.

Of course, he took his revenge in Athens two years later. I remember well. I cried on Gary McAllister’s shoulder. Very embarrassing for everyone involved.

So, while there are several legitimate scenarios that could play out and plenty of recent history to splurge on, as a fan I just reserve the right to spend all morning going between ultra-confident and a jumble of Swaying in self-doubt and sweating like an Irishman in a sauna and shaking like a constipated dog.

Before I say goodbye, I would like to seriously point out that although there are 550 seats, only 76 wheelchair users, 38 from each side, will be able to watch the game at the Stade de France.

While I accept that not all might be suitable, none of the excuses for making so few available speaks to me.

While there were hurdles to overcome, this should have been a much higher priority. Shameful.

Anyhow, when Liverpool parade through the streets of their hometown this Sunday, whatever the outcome, they will be drowned in an adoring red sea of ​​fans who no doubt know we are having some of our best days.

That being said, it would be just luscious to have Old Big Ears back on board the bus for the seventh time.
