4 min “I’m not a fan of applause as a replacement for a minute’s silence,” says Tim, who was in Pen 3 at Hillsborough on 15 April 1989. “Did they expect Bournemouth to not observe a silence? It seems unlikely. A minute’s silence seems so much more appropriate for such an emotionally heavy memorial.”
Yes, I wondered about that. There are times when it makes sense, as much as anything because of the fear that silence will be interrupted, but that was never an issue today.
3 min Salah misses an excellent chance, stabbing wide at the near post after a marvellous low cross from Trent Alexander-Arnold.
3 min Liverpool have had almost all of the ball in the first few minutes. Bournemouth are shuffling diligently from side to side like the aliens in Space Invaders.
1 min Roberto Firmino gets the match underway. Bournemouth are in their neon blue away kit.
Tomorrow is the 29th anniversary of the Hillsborough tragedy, and there is a minute’s applause for the 96 before the match.
Another email! “One reason Milner is keeping his engine going and his powder dry is precisely because he is not doing the international gigs,” says Ian Copestake. “No need to change that.”
Not much banter in that email mate.
“True…” says Marie Meyer. “but have you seen the state of the current England team?”
I quite like it. But yes, fair point. You could certainly make a case for him starting in midfield.
It’s a gorgeous evening in Liverpool, and there’s a feelgood mood at Anfield. I’ve got a feeling this could be a pr-etty special game.
An email! “Looks like Klopp understands that Milner is so important he has to be kept in cotton wool until the Roma match!” says Marie Meyer. “Couldn’t agree more. What is Gareth Southgate waiting for – can’t he get the Queen to order him to unretire from international duty?”
Really? Don’t get me wrong, I like Milner a lot and I’d certainly have him in the squad, but we’re not exactly talking about peak Paul Scholes.

Referee Chris Kavanagh.
Hail the conquering heroes! Liverpool return home to face Bournemouth after a glorious week in which they beat Manchester City and Roma to reach the Champions League final. They don’t have that much to play for today – they are going to finish in the top four regardless – but Jurgen Klopp’s sides usually play for the sheer love of football and sweat. You’d expect them to put on a show tonight.
Bournemouth will come to play as well, so this should be a really enjoyable game. They have lost only two matches since Christmas and are still in with a chance of equalling last season’s ninth-placed finish. In their own modest way they are an amazing team. The story of Eddie Howe’s Bournemouth will make a cracking book one day; so will the one about Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool.
Kick off is at 5.30pm.
