It gets better: Milner signs a new deal.


1.) 13 Dec 2019 18:32:25
That's more good news.


2.) 13 Dec 2019 18:54:40
Perfect. Milner more than deserves it.


3.) 13 Dec 2019 19:00:31
What next today eh, even more good news coming out of the club!


4.) 13 Dec 2019 19:45:28
Kylian Mbappé to sign in January!


5.) 13 Dec 2019 19:52:42
Really pleased Milner has done that. He embodies everything Liverpool has become. One of our best.


6.) 14 Dec 2019 04:02:28
Does he get 10 ribenas as goal bonus now?


7.) 14 Dec 2019 10:02:47
Am I mistaken or he told he is not drinking anymore Ribena? 😅.


8.) 14 Dec 2019 10:36:46
This is excellent news very happy. Hopefully the younger talent can lean from a true professional of the game.

Team: Mignolet, Manquillo, Skrtel, Toure, Johnson, Lucas, Gerrard, Allen, Henderson, Sterling, Lambert

Be interesting to see how Gerrard and Lucas are deployed. I'm assuming it'll be a diamond with Gerrard at the tip and Lucas at the base, but I'm worried that it'll be both of them as DMs which didn't exactly work against West Ham.

70 points and it's not even February.


1.) 29 Jan 2020 22:41:28
Yes . we are on for something special . my concern (as a Liverpool supporter I will always have concerns) if we happen to be champions in April, Klopp may start playing youths and reserves and start dropping points . Call me greedy but I would like us to go for a record points tally . it gives this team a sort of mortality that it deserves . You know in 10 years time I would like to hear the commentators talking about teams chasing Liverpool points record .

{Ed002's Note - I think there is little doubt about a record points total being achieved.}


2.) 29 Jan 2020 23:02:19
Do you really think so Ed002? What makes you do sure mate?

{Ed002's Note - Yes, I think so. No other club has excelled at all this year.}


3.) 29 Jan 2020 23:21:45
If we go for it, I believe we will, depends on if and when we wrap it up, that we keep playing, or are still fighting in the CL and maybe look to rest players.


4.) 29 Jan 2020 23:45:18
We need 10 wins and 1 draw from our remaining 14 to set a points record. Not guaranteed by any means, but at our current win rate in the Premier League of 95.8%, I think it's reasonable for Ed002 to think we'll achieve that.

I see only 2 ways we don't:

1) We get knocked out of the CL by Athletico and as a result the players mentally go on holiday in April. I doubt Klopp will let that happen though.

2) We rotate heavily in April / May to ensure freshness in the latter stages of the CL and to give game time to kids like Jones, Elliot and Williams. This is more likely than 1, but Klopp's actually not a heavy rotator. For the important games (CL and PL), he's always gone with his best available.

Even with the title effectively wrapped up, I can only see small number of changes in the PL games immediately prior to a CL game.


5.) 30 Jan 2020 00:06:04
I’d rather win a league and champions league double than set a points record. Records can be taken away, trophies can’t.


6.) 29 Jan 2020 23:09:17
It's an absolute joy to be a Liverpool fan right now. What a team. Every one of them. The ox was great. I love the way he bursts forward and when he's in the team, he creates space for the forwards just by being the ox. He can score from 20 yards as easily as most can from 10. This means defenders have to rush out to him. Thus creating space.

I don't think we'll drop that many points. Klopp may play the odd youngster but he will let the boys go on tour as champs. It'll be good to see which fans act with class and applaud this amazing team. Be cool if Everton did. Do you think it's likely ed025? Seriously.

{Ed025's Note - i think every supporter is in awe robbie mate..


7.) 30 Jan 2020 00:48:16
Good point thunderbird.


8.) 30 Jan 2020 01:10:36
I agree with you thunderbird id take european success and 99 points in the league over beating records but I can't see klopp rotating largely regardless, . Momentum is key and winning is a habit so I'm sure all our players will be hungry to set records if they're obtainable in the latter stage of the season regardless of how we're faring in europe.


9.) 30 Jan 2020 05:10:34
we are the creme of this year's crop. Almost exclusively over the last 2 decades there has been 2 and most times 1 team that is by far and away the best. I do submit that the challenge from those teams in 3-6th is well under the average of the last 10 years. But then again we are so far and away above the average for the 1st placed team. Anyways, we're not dropping it from here. Got to recognize elite when you see it and we are elite. Happy to have this post thrown back at me if we turn into our 2015 version and drop points left right and centre hahahahahahaha

But seriously, I hope we go undefeated and smash the points tally to rubber stamp our dominance and legacy as having the greatest PL season ever.


10.) 30 Jan 2020 05:11:48
p. s. we've secretly been performing at an elite level for just about 2 seasons now.


11.) 30 Jan 2020 05:49:37
Klopp is the ultimate pragmatist in my view.
If we’re still in the CL come late March, he will definitely rest players if the PL is all but tied up.
I think most Liverpool fans don’t give a damn about the invincible thing (it would be nice, don’t get me wrong) but that title is what we want. And if we can double it up with a seventh European Cup, that would be far more preferable than the invincible tag.


12.) 30 Jan 2020 07:06:51
Juicer - I think Klopp will demand his team go for it. Imo itd be amateur hour, like the stuff one season wonders to get to the point of winning the title then relaxing. Didn't know that's what champions clubs do.


13.) 30 Jan 2020 09:18:42
Sometimes resting players can have the opposite effect.

Barca didn't bring any of there first team to the game before the semi final last year and we had that tough game at newcastle and look how that turned out

sometimes its better to keep the rhythm and momentum going so some rotation will be expected but nothing too major!


14.) 30 Jan 2020 09:04:28
Thunderbird if we keep up current form and end up with 112 points there is no way anyone is ever taking that record away.
I’d love to do that and win the treble but for me doing things that have never been done before in 150 years of people playing football is astonishing and much more difficult that winning a trophy. You get chances to win trophies every season and every season someone does.
To win 37 out of 38 league games and draw the other is the stuff of fairytales and we will be immortalised for ever.
I get the sentiment but trust me if we get to 112 points (which is still a massive ask) it will mean more to everyone around the world than us winning a CL.


15.) 30 Jan 2020 10:29:22
In his post-match interview after the West Ham game, Klopp was asked about setting a PL points record. He replied “At Dortmund, we set a record but the very next season Bayern Munich beat that record. ” I think that suggests that titles and trophies are more important to Klopp (and therefore to his players) than records. I have no idea how he will go about securing those titles and trophies but I don’t think he will jeopardise, for example, winning the Champions League in order to set a Premier League points record.

Priceless. I hope someone can find the comments from Man U fans saying Maguire is better than VVD.


 

 

05 Jan 2020 18:33:02
Some thoughts on the game:

Minamino looks good technically. Good feet and intelligent. Maybe didn't get on the ball enough, but I think that was partly because he was trying to play the "Firmino role" without Salah and Mane to open up the space around him. Plus it was his debut. There's definitely plenty of ability there.

None of the kids let themselves down, but Williams and Jones stood out. Jones is genuine quality and we need to make sure we have a solid plan for his development and integration into the first team over the next 12-18 months.

I can see why Chirivella's never quite broken though. He's really good with the ball, but he only put in one tackle all game. It was an important tackle, tbf, but a player in his position needs to put the boot in more. That being said if we couldn't use Hendo or Fabinho in a game, either because of injury or needing to rest them, I'd turn to Chirivella before putting Lallana or Wijnaldum out of position.

Dear God, Everton have problems. Walcott was their only threat and he just gave up after about 30 minutes. Spent the entire second half in Larouci's pocket. I don't know how Richarlison (who could end up costing more than any forward Liverpool have if all his add-ons are triggered) has scored 9 goals this season, he was absolutely rubbish. Calvert-Lewin was able to beat a inexperienced defender in the air and that's about all he had in his locker today. Kean got one touch when he came on - the sooner he gets back to Italy the better before his career is ruined. Their midfield spent the second half chasing ours around ineffectively. I missed the first 2 minutes, didn't see the team sheets and genuinely didn't realise Schneiderlin started the game. Ancelotti said he can get Everton into the Champions League. Not a chance. Klopp would struggle to turn that lot around. That squad needs to be gutted. And Everton's owners have already spent big on it.

{Ed001's Note - why would Chirivella need to make more tackles? Everton would have needed to have the ball in midfield, rather than just hoofing it aimlessly upfield, for him to need to make a tackle mate. I think you are being harsh.}


1.) 05 Jan 2020 18:50:38
Actually thought Chirivella was excellent, and the only reason people aren't heaping praise on him like the other kids is because it's generally accepted he has no future at the club.


2.) 05 Jan 2020 19:01:56
I think Chirevella might of just got a few bigger clubs looking at him then those he was previously linked with. Very composed performance.


3.) 05 Jan 2020 19:08:42
Everton were very decent in first half. But they didn't score major thanks to adrian and some poor finishing.
And that's the character of no confidence club. The shoulders dropped and players were shot in legs. They didn't run at all. And that's what Ancelotti has on his plate. This ain't a chelsea side which will win fa cup and stuff what he was gawding to. This is an underperforming no confidence Everton team full of players with no cause.
And truth be told that's not carlo's forte. He cannot forge players and make teams.
On the other hand liverpool boss said no reverse fixture game. Team responded the best possible way.


4.) 05 Jan 2020 19:24:23
Okay, I likely underestimated the extent to which Everton deprived him of the opportunity to make tackles in the second half, but I thought there were occasions in the first half where Fabinho or Hendo would've gone in and Chirivella stood off.

I can only say what I see. Not saying he's a bad player, but he's just missing a small piece to make him first team material.


5.) 05 Jan 2020 19:41:28
I think he could have a big future with just about any Premier league club. Unfortunately for him he plays for the world's best team in one of the best midfield around. Did well today
If Curtis Jones doesn't make it as a Liverpool senior ill eat my scarf. What a player.
And I also think the worry about cover for the wing backs is not a problem. Williams on the right was class and larouci looks intelligent and powerful, maybe needs a bit more confidence. But at rb we are sorted.

And another massive bonus. Another stella performance from Joe gomez. He was good before but 2 seasons playing with van djike has made him one of the top 5 cbs in the league. I wouldn't swap him for maguire, Luiz and zouma!


6.) 05 Jan 2020 20:01:09
Harsh on chirrevella thought he was of the best players on the pitch personally.


7.) 05 Jan 2020 20:39:21
Chirivella was excellent today, along with the rest of the team. Although he isn't exactly a kid anymore, for the youth we should really just be promoting the things they are doing well.


8.) 05 Jan 2020 21:12:10
Chiravella was absolutely brilliant. I've seen him make a few appearances for us before and I've always been less than impressed. But, for me, he came of age today, and showed exactly why we've kept hold of him.

People mature at different times in their life. He's going to be one hell of a midfielder, albeit showing it later then most people do.


9.) 05 Jan 2020 18:55:11
Chirivella played super very brave and clever on the ball

Now I know we have another match so if we loan all the kids out we need to play our first teamers will this impact our plans to loan

(I know it's only one game but important to have options)


10.) 05 Jan 2020 19:05:44
His passing was shocking.


11.) 05 Jan 2020 21:34:42
Agreed, I hope we keep him.


12.) 05 Jan 2020 23:13:05
Chirivella is one cool customer in possession. His decision-making is excellent and seems to have great awareness to know what is around him and what to do with the ball. All those qualities were on show today and he was brilliant.


13.) 06 Jan 2020 06:30:36
Don't get why he has to make a number of tackles to justify having a good game. Played against Gilfy and Morgan who between them have graced Man U and Spurs upon a time. He has something to offer but like most of the kids he probably has no future at Liverpool fc.

I've been told it was on their official twitter but they deleted it well before kick off.

Now maybe someone is lying to me, but it doesn't look obviously faked.

{Ed0666's Note - I’m not sure an institution/business would be so disrespectful. I call BS but if true we answered in the best way possible.

Wow I’m surprised by this. Those 2 clubs are champions of their continents it’s very disrespectful that if legit.

Well that escalated quickly.

End of the road for Shaq? I know he would've played more often without injuries, but there isn't exactly a massive hole in the squad when he's missing.

We really have a fascinating fetish for wanting to drop Hendo out of the team. Apart possibly from Matip, I don't think any player's position is talked about as much. Yet he keeps coming back and justifying his place.

That said, Ox deserves to start against Spurs, imo. And I think Klopp subbed him because he wants that option. Had he no intention of starting him against Spurs, he'd have probably left him on for the full 90 against Genk.

I wouldn't start Ox and Keita though, I think it'll leave us too open. Given that Fabinho should be an automatic choice at DM, there's then a space for Gini, Milner or Hendo even with Ox starting. I see merits in picking any of them.

What on earth possessed us to field Chirivella without making sure his paperwork was in order?

Did we not know about it or did we just not bother? Is Rick Parry back running our club's admin department or something?

Rigidly rotating 4 into 3 (as a stat of 45 out of 60 would suggest) works in Football Manager. It might work in real life until someone's turn to miss out falls on a day that's perceived to be more important than another (away trip to a title rival, CL semi, so on), or if players feel it's disrupting their rhythm.

If you look at stats, Klopp doesn't rotate the front three in the CL and PL unless he really has to. Salah and Mane had 49 starts each last season out of 53 games (Bobby started less but he had a couple of niggles iirc) . And they're clearly able to perform whilst playing that much. Salah actually came off the bench in 3 of the 4 games he didn't start, too. The only time he didn't play at all was the 2nd leg against Barcelona because of concussion.

An established front 3 with respectable quality on the bench and as backup (Origi, Shaq, Minamino) is working well for us at the moment. I'd say it's best not to disrupt it.

@ Pak - I don't think we did. Souness had been appointed by the time Kenny was back from his extended holiday and in his autobiography he mentions meeting with the Liverpool board after Souness was sacked and being told "the time wasn't right. "

@ mark - I think Evans said he tried to get Desailly in the 90s before he went to Chelsea. Might have made a difference to our leaky defence. He also said he tried to get Reidle earlier than we ultimately did.

Souness tried to sign Tim Flowers in 1993. Not world class, but he was decent enough if I remember and considerably more predictable than James. May have made a difference during the mid 90s.

Johncrow, the issue I have with him is apart from the treble season, which should've been the starting point for a regime that could mount an assault on the league or CL, instead of it's zenith, we actually weren't any better during his tenure than before.

Apart from one season our league form was worse than under Evans, but the extension of the Champions League turned 3rd place into something acceptable whereas previously it had been cause to edge the manager out the door.

Basically, after 5 years of him in charge, we weren't any better off and had seen an entire team gutted and replace with a Sam Allardyce style hoofball side. Not worth it.
