      I know Klopp won’t be thinking this way but if we win tonight should we be prioritising the league over the CL?

      I think he already is but a win tonight will just accentuate that.  You can have a wonderful cup tournament get nearly over the line and then your star player gets fouled and your keeper can have a couple of brain farts in the last game...

      I don't think there is a Liverpool fan alive who would prioritise, this season, the European Cup over the title. 

      I'm picturing us here now winning the European Cup a sixth time and not having won the league and I think I'd be disappointed - and now I'm looking at the sentence I've just written and thinking just how far we've come!  Mad times.

      7 pts ahead and wrap up all the big hitters for crucial EPL games.

      PS I don’t mean play the reserves for CL.


      Klopp has said in several interviews this season that the Premier League is priority No 1.

      The FA need to understand that the standard of refereeing in the Premiership is not acceptable, considering the sums of money involved if referees get it wrong! No other business, and
      like it or not, football is now a big business, would accept the ineptitude on display every Week!

      Okay, well if Klopp has to give a written explanation to what he meant then how about Atkinson comes out and gives us a written explanation as to why he failed to award us a penalty against Leicester and why he failed to send off Maguire.

      It goes both ways, if the FA demand respect and a standard of behaviour from the managers with regards to the officials then how about the officials start doing their jobs properly and earn the right for that respect and behaviour from the managers.

      IMO officials have been worse this season than for the last few years, probably because they know VAR will be in play soon so they won’t have to make any decisions on their own anymore.

      Point A: Can someone please help me understand what's happened to our defending of set pieces in the 2nd half of the Season.

      In the first half of the Season just like the 2nd half, we have played a zonal defense. The first half of the Season, we seemed to be playing that high line and catching everyone off side, even if we were very lucky on a few occasions.

      This 2nd half we are still playing Zonal but every player in the opposition seems to be onside and having free pops at our goal.

      What's happened? Is it because of Matip and Milner being in the back 5 instead of TAA and Gomez or have we changed something that's causing me to sh*t myself every time the oppo gets a free kick?


      Point B: Can Jürgen please find someone to deliver a cross, when we have a corner, that beats the first man? F**k me, Mo and James can't do it, is there anyone else in the squad that can?

      I can’t speak for the last few games but on Monday night it was pretty simple and I’m surprised it’s taken so long for another team to figure it out. We play a very high line at FKs. West Ham dimples played the 5yard pass before delivery which enabled them to free up a runner from deep such as when Rice was through with a free header. Other teams will follow suit so I very much hope we drop the line for future games and sit a little deeper.

      "We must turn from doubters to believers" says Jürgen Klopp




      JURGEN KLOPP has delivered an uplifting message to Liverpool fans on his first day as new Reds boss: “We have to change from doubters to believers. Now.”

      The German gave his first interview on the club’s inhouse TV channel this morning and declared his intention to start writing new chapters in the club’s storied history.


      “At this moment all the LFC family is a little bit too nervous, a little bit too pessimistic, a little bit too much in doubt,” he said. “They all celebrate the game and there is a fantastic atmosphere in the stadium, But they don’t believe at the moment. They only see five years ago, 10 years ago, 20 years ago.

      One would believe he is an infinity time stone & was telling us what to expect in a couple of years from now.. 😘

      If you have 5,6 or 7 defenders in a high line and they push up on to the edge of the area....all facing toward the kicker...then you have 3,4,5 attackers....facing our goal, then the first issue is they have a run on us, we have to turn...if they time their runs then eventually they will get chances. That's the main problem with the high line.

      The other issue up top is Mane. For some unknown reason he is playing centrally. Robinson is very often left with nowhere to go other than lay it back to VVD.

      Robinson is not a winger. He can't operate down our left hand side alone. Ok Mane did score from a central position against West Ham,but this ploy of Mane playing inside with Salah out on the right with BObby god knows where is....a mess.

      To much traffic down the right. Mane has to get back to the left side to create width and it makes Robinson more effective. Keita when he plays has no defined role or doesn't appear to have. If Klopp doesn't get it right it will be very difficult to win it.

      Didn’t Mane score from the left vs Palace, and by coming off the left vs Leicester? To be honest, I haven’t seen Mane central much at all. It’s mostly been Salah with Bobby being deeper than the midfield.

      Big day for the boss.
      Off the back of two draws, which is no disaster by any means, but Citeh's form has been better and with them now top, there is more pressure on us to get a result.
      Jürgen has been excellent but these are the days he really earns his crust.
      Players and crowd need to be at it - though I'd settle for a scrappy 3 points right now.
      Hoping to see the Klopp fist-pump down the Kop end come 5pm :)

      Just read (in Thai media) Klopp could faces touchline ban in the coming manunited game after being charged by FA for comments he made about the officiating in their 1-1 draw against West Ham. If true I hope it don't effect the team that much.

      I've not seen one single media outlet say anything to that affect. If he didn't get a ban for running onto the pitch and hugging Allison, he won't get a ban for what he said about West Ham.

      Rafa got stung for £60k after he admitted commenting on the Ref BEFORE a game. Rafa had a pop at the FA after they let Pep Guardiola off for doing more or less the same thing.

      Still £45k does seem a bit harsh.
