Can one of the eds please explain to me why winning the Premiership is more important than winning the Champions League. I would have thought that winning the latter gives the winners more exposure and fans around the world and enables you to attract high-calibre players. Or do the winners of the Premiership get more money? Also, I think Man City would give up one Premiership for a Champions League cup. Thanks in advance.

{Ed002's Note - The PL is seen as the pinnacle of club football.}


1.) 13 May 2019 13:26:13
PL? I think. you mean CL ed. PL is the pinnacle for us Liverpool fans because we are waiting so long but no way if u gave any player in the world the choice between the CL and PL he would choose the premier league.

{Ed002's Note - No, the PL is what clubs want - and once they have won that they look to the CL.}


2.) 13 May 2019 13:36:32
That surprises me ed as I thought the exposure of the CL would enhance their worldwide fan base. But as a liverpool fan I would rather the PL but 97points isn't enough these days. Thanks for the reply.


3.) 13 May 2019 13:45:15
Champions league is the biggest trophy in club football, fans from Spain Brazil Germany France etc don't give a hoot abt PL.

Now in our case we haven't won a league title for almost three decades so our fans globally are desperate for PL and that's why we've got mix feelings playing in Champions league final. But make no mistake winning it will be our biggest achievement since 2005 and klopp will be forever Included in our history. That's how big achievement it is.

{Ed002's Note - Why would fans from Brazil care about the CL? The owners are desperate for the PL - and that is what clubs strive for.}


4.) 13 May 2019 14:33:33
The league competition is always the number one prize for any club across any country . proving yourself in your own domestic league over 34/ 38 games . The above posts is all about us being in the CL final and obviously we'll win it because we are the best in the universe and therefore must be better than City who only won the league and not good enough for the champions league.

{Ed002's Note - I agree Roy.}


5.) 13 May 2019 16:40:31
I never disagree with you but I do on this.

Ask
Celtic
Juve
Barca
PSG
Ajax

These clubs have won plenty leagues recently and I would say 95% of their owners, players, fans would choose the champions league.

I think as well City, Man U, Arsenal, Chelsea would all choose champions league.

{Ed002's Note - Right, so they have been winning their national leagues regular. Liverpool has never won the Premier League.}


6.) 13 May 2019 17:05:30
I agree about LFC that is what we want but I understood the thread to be what is the most important generally.

Then I re read one of your replies - PL most important but once you win it then CL. So you right again boss.


7.) 13 May 2019 17:24:04
To win the league you have to be the best and most consistent over 38 games.
To win the champions league you have to be in the top 4 of the league then qualify for the groups, then finish in the top 2 of your group of 4, then win 3 x 2-legged ties, then win the final.
There are no draws in the non-group stages of the CL. However, a draw in the PL can be decisive in the final shake-up.

Winning the PL is more difficult IMO.
Hard to say which is “the pinnacle” but I can see why someone would claim it’s the PL.


8.) 13 May 2019 18:17:14
The trouble with these arguments is there is no right answer. Some Liverpool supporters value the European cup more and see it as an opportunity to move even further ahead of other British teams in Europe, others want that PL title because it's been nearly 30 years (? ) since we last won the league.

Other fans will have different opinions based on their team and league. Possibly if you asked a fan of a team in Scotland whether they'd prefer winning the Scottish League or the European Cup, they'd choose the latter since it's arguably held in much higher regard. But with the PL that's not the case.

Then you have teams like City who have won the league, and now their owners want the European Cup. On the flip side, our owners prioritise the league title over the European Cup. So I think the answer depends on who you are. If you own Liverpool then no, the European Cup is not better right now.

Personally I would have chosen the league first because it's been so long, but I think a 6th European Cup would be fantastic and it'd move us one more trophy ahead of our rivals. We really would be driving forward as the most successful British team in Europe.

On a side note, I'm disappointed we didn't progress further in the domestic cups. I'd love to have seen us competing in them, though who knows if that would have hampered our European performances.


9.) 13 May 2019 18:22:48
For Liverpool fans and owners, winning the PL is what we all should want above anything else. I reckon if it was possible, City's owners would swap yesterday's league win for our place in the CL final because - as Ed002 alluded to - they've won the League a few times now so need to focus on taking that next step.


10.) 13 May 2019 18:32:34
Shame we won't win either.

Klopp isn't interested in the domestic cups.
We aren't good enough to win the league.
We won't win the CL because Spurs will be hungrier than we are, we'll underestimate them and get burnt.

People say a good season, yeah alright, it's good when we win something, when will that be? I wouldn't mind seeing us lift silverware before I pop my clogs!

Klopp out.


11.) 13 May 2019 18:55:36
I think it depends on the club and where that particular club is.

Liverpool are desperate to win the league as we’ve not won it for so long. And I don’t buy into the “Premier League” status, it’s the league championship with a name change. The only difference is that the fianance related to it. It’s just like saying Chelsea haven’t won the Milk cup, Arsenal beat Liverpool to win the littlewoods cup in 87, it’s the same completion, same cup.

I.


12.) 13 May 2019 18:54:38
Did someone really just write 'Klopp Out'? Probably one of the best managers currently in the world who just missed out winning the league after losing one game all season. Absolute nonsense post.


13.) 13 May 2019 19:19:19
The likes of Juventus, PSG, Barca, Man City and Bayern would view the champions league as the pinnacle, simply because they win their own leagues almost every year, so these clubs strive to win the champions league to prove they are the best in Europe too.
In Liverpools case, they crave a PL title as it has been 30 years since last doing so. So here we are, a 'Champions' league final contested by teams that finished 3rd and fourth in their league.


14.) 13 May 2019 19:36:55
Think nothing. Desire nothing. Take the experience as it comes and just enjoy. PL? CL? Neither here nor there. Victory's victory. Just enjoy.


15.) 13 May 2019 20:54:02
That's just Salah (having lost a bet) John.

Hope the rest of his post isn't true.

{Ed002's Note - It is embarrassing rubbish.}


16.) 13 May 2019 21:13:59
no argument from me.


17.) 13 May 2019 22:00:45
This page is spiralling out of control and becoming a joke.

Good question and simple answer, the prem is more important to any English club than the Champions League. More important to those who have never won one. It’s a shame that decent debates are being ruined by childish accounts and their fake alter egos who are butt hurt.

One of the best seasons in 30 years and this is how you reward yourselves. I miss the days of YNWA.


18.) 13 May 2019 22:42:04

We've had a great season. I know we lost only one game but people who mention that forget that we had too many draws. At least we will have the 6th European trophy in the bag. And we go again next season.

Hamidou

Don't get ahead of yourself.


2.) 12 May 2019 19:46:20
We didn’t have too many draws. City are just a machine and got 98 points. If we’d turned just 2 of those draws in to wins then we’d have a record points tally which based on where we’ve been over the past 2 seasons is ridiculous to expect.
The team has done everything and more than what was expected but we’ve just been unlucky this season. We go again. YNWA.


3.) 12 May 2019 23:56:47
30 wins! 1 defeat!

It’s an amazing effort, 7 draws - so what!

I watched the match on BEIN SPORTS and Mourinho was full of praise for Klopp.

Hamidou

1.) 08 May 2019 01:56:12
I saw a clip of that.
His comments really nailed it and summed up every answer to every question - which even Klopp could not answer when asked about the plan or how the result was achived tonight!

Mourinhio basicly said the performance was a total reflection of Klopp, his style, mentality and approach - and he is absoloutly right, as it seemed there were 11 Klopps on the pitch tonight with 6 Klopps sitting on the bench as subs waiting to come one and 50,000 plus Klopps in the stadium, not to mention the millions around the world.

You can say all you like about Mourinhio, but he is an extremely inteligent football man and he summed everything up tonight.


2.) 08 May 2019 03:27:29
Well it is a night of miracles.


 

 

07 May 2019 08:41:10
If it wasn't for LFC, the Premiership would have been a one-horse race this season À la Scotland. Fans of other clubs should appreciate that instead of knocking LFC.

Hamidou

1.) 07 May 2019 10:42:36
my concern is that the premier league will become like every other european league where every club knows going in that they are playing for 2nd. Spain would be the exception with two clubs fighting for the top spot and every few years Atletico Madrid, but almost every top European league can go ahead and award the trophy before the season starts. I'm also afraid that Klopp will finally realize this and jump to BM where he knows he will have unlimited funds and will win the league every year and legitimately compete for all domestic and international trophies. LFC have been warriors this season but City will be overwhelming favorites to go back to back to back.


2.) 07 May 2019 11:27:36
If Klopp was a glory hunter who likes to do things the easy way, he would have already been gone by now.


3.) 07 May 2019 11:30:36
I agree stone, I don't see them being anything but dominant, teams win the league with 70ish points, city would never drop that many points, just an impossible, they even had mass injuries and it didn't affect their results.


4.) 07 May 2019 11:37:29
I think it's natural if Klopp doesn't start picking some trophies then of coarse he'll leave. That's not coz of money after all owners have backed him and Klopp has built he's own side.


5.) 07 May 2019 12:56:54
What I would say to that Stone is if you look at the games where Aguero, Fernandinho, Silver, Kompny were not all playing together they were not straight foward wins. The Swansea game in the FA cup springs to mind, City were getting well beaten as they rested there top starters and had to bring them on in the end. When thier current bench all get games they are not the same team. a lot of the core of that team that City rely on are now fast approaching mid thirties and will need replacing. The likes of Sane and Jesus are quality bit will they stick around for another season of bench duty. The big money signings of the likes of John Stones who never gets a game, will they want to stay. To replace what father time will take from them is going to be very very expensive and if they out lay 100s of millions on new players surely the FFP investigation will see they have broken rules again and need to be punished. I actually think that after the core of this current squads first team has grown to old to do what they are doing now the bench players they have may not be as effective or infact be there at all. Liverpool have a lot of players in thier squad 23-29 so a lot of years left, we just need to keep them or if they want to leave replace with the same level of quality.


6.) 07 May 2019 12:56:58
Klopp will leave on his own IF he feels he can't win us trophies, IMO. That is the type of guy he is.


7.) 07 May 2019 15:22:27
Nobody invests so much time and effort living in a new country, learning the language, building a truly staggering team, and leave with the job half done. Klopp will stay a long time and become remembered as a manager legend like Paisley and Shankly.


 

 

02 May 2019 09:29:06
Another trophyless season for us? We desperately need a playmaker with incisive passes, trickery and imagination. We are too predictable in and around the opposition's penalty area, ie one twos, etc.

Hamidou

1.) 02 May 2019 09:48:14
We played most of the game with three centre halves and four defensive midfielders and still conceded three goals. We lacked a bit of quality and Milner should have buried that chance.
Keeping it tight has served us well all season but I think it was too much last night and we were still attacking without the threat.
Even at one down I think we should have stuck instead of twisting but hindsight is a wonderful thing.


2.) 02 May 2019 09:55:27
Credit where it’s due this has been an amazing season in the league. Cups are different, we were a save by Alisson away in the last minute from going out in the champions league group and we sacrificed the domestic cups. Beating Bayern over 2 legs was good.,

What’s annoying for me is Klopp has done it again, the same players playing every game (admittedly not domestic cups which we sacrifice) and then come the business end of the season they are utterly gassed. That’s why they’re more likely to pick up injuries (Bobby) and can’t live with the really top class teams (the ones you find in semis and finals) .
We have full squad registration, I’d hazard a guess that 30% have played less than 5% of the minutes in the league.
All this warm weather training and sacrificing domestic cups does not help the fringe players to stay match fit and integrated with the rest of the squad. This is elite level sport and fine margins decide significant outcomes.
Unless Klopp changes his selection/ substitution habits this will be a recurring problem.
It doesn’t matter who are the players on your bench, if they never play the result is the same.


3.) 02 May 2019 10:12:40
I actually think we played most of game incredibly. Ultimately, we conceded more than the overall game reflected and that was down to a bit of Messi magic and good fortune. You’ve got to look at the fact that we created a lot of chances against a huge team and just didn’t put the ball in the net. That’s just how it is sometimes. I think the lads will be disappointed with the end result but we should be proud of how we played for the large part of the game. It screams from mountains that were rivalling city for the PL and we’re playing the likes of Barcelona in a CL semi. What a fantastic time to be a fan!


4.) 02 May 2019 10:15:10
Was taa injured? If he wasn’t then that might be an iffy decision to play gomez. Also, I thought Naby was a huge huge loss.


5.) 02 May 2019 10:19:58
A saints fan said to me. “Dread to think what you lot would be like with one world class cm”
And that sums it up for me. So close, yet so far. Hopefully addressed in the summer.


6.) 02 May 2019 11:43:32
I think people need to take a cold, hard look at the game stats before making some mistaken comments. We went to the Camp Nou and had 52% of possession, we were relatively competitive and had 15 shots to their 12.admittedly only 4 were on target and Ter Stegen proved capable, but they only had 5 shots on target of which 3 were scored. The difference in the game was Messi (God how I hate him sometimes) and an interesting tactic from Valverde forcing space for Messi by Suarez constantly occupying an offside position to unsettle our defense. Will it be nigh on impossible in the return leg at Anfield? Possibly, but we need to make sure as fans that we play our roles in supporting our boys through every tackle, battle and challenge. Let's make sure we breath life into our boys for their chance in the return leg. Don't be a part-time supporter. #YNWA.

{Ed001's Note - that is not a Velverde tactic to create space for Messi, that is something Suarez did anyway. He has always done that. He used to do it a lot with us as well.}
