After Sadio Mane and his pals ended Porto's 24-match unbeaten streak at home in destructive fashion Wednesday, one would think the Porto fans would be, like, mad or something.
But they weren't. Or, at least, if they had any anger they pushed it down deep inside themselves to be let out later at (to pick a profession at random) a tow-truck driver. Instead, the Porto fans cheered their team following an embarrassing loss just as loudly as they would have following a big win.
Liverpool are red,
Porto are blue
The Reds won 5-0
And are (almost) certainly through
Sadio Mané gives Liverpool that all-important away goal!

Roses are red
Away goals are cool
That was a bit of a shitshow
Porto's goalkeeper is not very good
Of course Alberto Moreno is the best Liverpool player at training dogs. Alberto Moreno is like if a dog was a person. With this and his miniature golf domination of Firmino and Coutinho earlier this season, Moreno is quickly filling the "extremely good at random LFCTV competitions" void left by Lucas's departure (see the Fair Day obliteration for more details on that).
This assist from Roberto Firmino to Mohamed Salah for Liverpool's second goal against Southampton is everything. After scoring the first via a Salah assist, Firmino returned the favor in style. The match ended 2-0 to Liverpool, with Firmino's assist the major highlight.
Liverpool midfielder Adam Lallana played for the Reds' U-23 squad against Tottenham Hotspur on Monday while rehabbing an injury. There is no good way to say this: He jumped on a Spurs player's back and tried to choke him.
Even though Lallana isn't known for this sort of thing, this is still really bad. We at The18 would like to go on record as being against choking people during soccer games.
