Well deserved victory. We were by far the better side the whole game but Cardiff is not a team that will roll over in a cup final. Downing best performance in a LFC shirt, and Kuyt is just magnificent. Hopefully this trophy will help us move forward in the league and FA cup.
Agreed we should have won the game before extra time but again our finishing was a problem
i thought this was the worst 'pool team to win a cup, and i'm a Reds fan. only Downing, Skirtel and Kyut were good others bad or just average. but a cup is a cup
All credit to Cardiff TBH i don't see how anyone but Liverpool fans would think that Liverpool deserve much applause.
Liverpool went into the game with a full strength side, as red hot faves. They should have walked it but instead made it look very difficult work against a Cardiff side that will do well to finish in the top 6 in the championship.
End of the day Liverpool have won something, congratulations. That is what will be remembered. The City semi was where Liverpool really put in the effort and impressed me.
But it wasn't a great performance in the final as you might claim. Henderson was abysmal even with space and time, plus Carroll should have done an awful lot more against this calibre of defence. Plenty of shots, but little good finishing. Not so great when you get taken to penalties which are pot luck. Cardiff were just unlucky on the day.
If you are honest you would admit it could have easily gone the other way.
That was close, but what a final.
Finally it was a long wait for a trophy hope this will spark a good run of form now till the end of the season
