Jürgen Klopp Liverpool league record v Newcastle Played 3 Won 0Liverpool v a Rafa Benitez sidePlayed 5 Won 0Good luck lads.
Is that right? Weird, if it is. I wouldn't expect it to be the same after this weekend though
Rafa will park the bus.
He doesn't have a bus to park, that is my point. Its all very well having the tactic of parking a bus but if your players, specifically defenders, are sh*te then it makes little difference. If Rafa had a bus to park then why did he end up drawing a match at the weekend when he was 2-0 up?I honestly think we will win this game quite easily, especially if we can get a nice early goal.
That's not right?We drew 2-2 with them two seasons back.
Success for Rafa will be to keep Newcastle in the Premier league. Rafa will know this game won't have much say in that. He will defend and hope we misfire. If they are lucky enough to snatch a goal early on before we strike, they will have an outside chance.But they aren't good enought to shut us out. Always good to see Rafa back on Merseyside. He knows he's always welcome here.3-0..4-0....may be 5...
This I suppose IS his highest attainable goal this season, just staying up. It kind of begs the question for me: Why did Rafa choose to manage this club? It's not as if Ashley has ever pretended to be a big-spending owner with a goal of pushing Newcastle into the top group of teams in England. The club has a pretty big fan base and stadium, I know. But considering where Rafa has been, I don't quite get what his interest is in managing them.Anyone know?
When did 2-2 become a win
Watched this lot against United and Shelvey ran the show. I think he has scored a few against us since his departure (?), so need to keep him quiet.
Anyone has stats for Rafa v Klopp....?
Read the thread.
Our forwards should have enough go see of this Benitez team, our defenders shouldn't be troubled either, think Rafa will set up for a draw...Going for a 3-0 win here..Anyone has stats for Rafa v Klopp....?
Think it's two draws so far!!Can't think of many other games when they've faced each other.
We lost 5-0 against Mainz & Klopp I think lost to Napoli with Dortmund in the CL...it's what I'm trying to establish...how they have done against each other with different clubs..Think it's dine now ...I think
NB: Team no longer availableAnother must win so to keep Utd on their toes. We need to press from the 1st second.
Interesting no VVD... is he injured or you think he needs a rest?
