After Liverpool lose to Zenit Brendan Rodger and Dominic King leave us laughing

LIVERPOOL lose 3-1 to Zenit St Petersburg in the Europa Cup. Over two legs they tied at 3-3, going out on the away goals rule.  Two quotes about the game are worthy of repeating here. Brandan ‘Polyanna’ Rodgers, the Liverpool manager:

“I don’t think the players could have done any more, the crowd certainly couldn’t have done any more. It was one of those nights. It was a fantastic night but unfortunately we probably lost the tie over there.”

Probably.

This is only topped by Dominic King in the Daily Mail:

This could have been a story about the greatest European comeback in Liverpool’s history, one that outstripped evenings against St Etienne, Auxerre and Chelsea; a tale depicting how Brendan Rodgers’ side defied the odds to topple Zenit St Petersburg.

Yeah. Those glory, glory days were within spitting distance. So epic would it have been that AC Milan is not even worth a mention.
