Liverpool put in two solid performances against Basel and then Real Madrid to see them edge close to a semi-final spot. The win against Basel was all but in the bank following the first leg lead.
They had to work hard to secure a what could be a decisive 2-1 lead after the home leg. Real Madrid did get the away goal so are not out of the contest either.

We did what we had to do against Basel, although we were poor in that game. I am wondering whether we have the mental fortitude to get over the line and repeat this season. All we can do is do our best.
Blow by Blow
Champions League Scores
United and Chelsea are both through to the quarter-finals.
Dortmund put up a fight however Real Madrid did enough. Schalke reversed the first leg deficite to advance.
Premier League – Match 31/38
Chrystal Palace come to Anfield in what becomes yet another must win game in our quest for another repeat.
“Mookee” returns to the starting lineup. A strong side fielded.
We were very average in the first half and missed so many chances. In the end the hat-trick by “Naert” got us out of jail somewhat.
We have locked down a minimum of third place in the league. I want to win it all.
Champions League – First knockout Round – Leg 2
We have a chance to seal the deal. I will be taking nothing for granted.
We rotate the side and switch back into a 4-3-1-2 to match up with the oppositions line-up.
We put in a poor performance and I had to rip the team a new one after we limped over the line.
Champions League Results
Barcelona came back over PSV while Juventus had enough class to see of Bayern.
Anderlecht were helped by two absolute horror tackles that reduced Lazio to nine men.
Champions League – Quarter Final Draw
There are no easy sides left in the competition. We get Real Madrid in what should be a tough match.
“Kevster” was on the fringe and not likely to be involved in many more games. Still its mildly annoying to lose him.
Premier League – Match 32/38
Southampton are in last place and look certain to be going down. I won’t be taking any prisoners.
We have fielded a slightly experimental lineup today. Chelsea have drawn another game which opens us up fo go three games clear.
It took a while for us to get going. When we got one goal we got five and all three points.
Champions League – Quarter Final – Leg 1
A rematch of the final from last season. They were tough then, and will be tough now.
The side picks itself. “Ni Cole” is preferred over “K.A.A.” for this game.
We played ok, without real conviction. In the end we did enough to get the victory.
Champions League Results
Two draws see honours even in the first two matches.
We were the only team to come away with a win. It is only a slender lead however.
Another four wins and four games closer to a successful campaign.
We have opened a nine point lead with six games to play. Both Chelsea and United have faltered allowing us to take control.
It is quite possible that we could have the title wrapped up at the end of the next episode. We may even have a Champions League semi-final to look forward to.
