The Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern have been reacting to comments from Roy Keane following Liverpool’s 7-6 aggregate win over Roma last night. At the Stadio Olimpico last night Roma came out 4-2 winners and despite Keane having to eat humble pie, claiming that the Reds deserve to in the final, he still took a dig at two of Liverpool’s stars from their campaign.
Eat up, Roy – there’ll be plenty more to come in a few weeks https://t.co/fba890IWzO

The Liverpool fans propping our bar up couldn’t help but enjoy watching Roy Keane praise their side, especially knowing how much he hates Liverpool following his playing days as Manchester United captain. Keane particularly went to town on two of Liverpool’s players following the game though. Trent Alexander-Arnold and Loris Karius became the two most recent players to be on the end of some of Roy Keane’s hairdryer treatment.
Liverpool went 5-0 up in the tie and eventually won 7-6 on aggregate, so maybe Keane does have reason to slate some of Liverpool’s defensive work. Keane in his playing days was one of the best defensive midfielders in the world and now for him to watch on as Liverpool make defensive errors give him plenty of ammunition to use against Jurgen Klopp’s side. Whilst there’s no doubt that Liverpool are a near unstoppable force going forward, Keane will want to see them lose in Kiev to save him eating yet more humble pie on the Kopites.
You can read our resident Reds’ verdict on Keane’s comments here:
I don’t think Trent was terrible yesterday. He had the most to do during that night without the help and backup he needed. Karius still needs work though.

Folks criticising Liverpool’s defending should remember Roma let in seven and Man City five.

Roy is right in many aspects, but we wouldn't be Liverpool without a back to the wall mentality #AllezAllezAllez
