tho your dreams be tossed and blown

If you watch the post-game interview (not the presser) Klopp touches on that. He had the conversation with him on one side of the pitch and was preparing a sub when he got called for the second yellowGreat result away from home, and suspected it was the kind of game we’d need to win a battle before a football match. The lads were patient, defended well and took their chance when it came.
On Henderson, I’ve never been a critic, and have always rated him. Love seeing him in the team. But that yellow card is brainless, it really is. To get sent off for a second yellow in their half, at 2-0, takes some doing. And he is the captain. It’s fine to say that, and also like the lad at the same time.
IMO on its own is a bullshit card considering how many times Watford had pulled down our attacking threats to slow them down without a yellow. Just as bullshit as his first yellow, Jordan was being pulled back by Success (whom is a BEAST of a man, to be fair) to the point it ripped the neck of his jersey and the foul+card went the wrong way...
I am fairly certain at some point over the years Jordan and Moss have had some disagreements over calls on the pitch, he was warned a few times in this match and Moss had enough to ship him off.
Maybe some players who don’t challenge the referee on the pitch don’t get that second yellow, but am satisfied that Jordan isn’t a pushover and stood his ground. He will likely be pissed off to be missing the derby and leave it on the pitch in Paris knowing he will get a day off next weekend.
Shit happens, folks. He is human
