Weekend question: would you rather win the lottery, or Liverpool win the league?

stoneage

1.) 23 Mar 2019 17:46:44
Lottery I'm afraid.


2.) 23 Mar 2019 17:47:56
Liverpool winning the league would mean the world to me, but winning the lottery would mean the world to my whole family, so It's got to be the lottery. But it's a tough choice!


3.) 23 Mar 2019 18:04:29
I choose lottery even if it meant Everton winning the league.


4.) 23 Mar 2019 18:15:11
Lottery, then I'll bribe the FA to give Liverpool all the decisions like Man City have done *straightens tinfoil hat*.


5.) 23 Mar 2019 19:28:19
I don't know about that TJ ;) bloody hell mate I wouldn't be able to enjoy the millions if they won it before us lol.


6.) 23 Mar 2019 23:07:19
Buy another mansion Salah - instant feel good 😁
Btw, been meaning to ask - are you fully healthy now? Recovered?


7.) 23 Mar 2019 23:52:27
Lol that's true TJ.

Thank you very much for asking mate, I'm doing really well :) 100% now. I'm a firm believer in 'everything happens for a reason' what happened last year changed me somewhat and for the better so I continue to look at the positives mate! I hope you are doing well?


8.) 24 Mar 2019 01:43:55
Good to hear man.
I am doing well sir! We are very much the lucky few aren't we? Maybe folks (including myself lol) need to sometime remind ourselves just how good we have it
Take care good fella!


9.) 24 Mar 2019 01:44:55
um soz, win the lottery lol.


10.) 24 Mar 2019 07:02:51
Depends mate if I got three numbers that is only a tenner, so I would choose Liverpool lol.


11.) 24 Mar 2019 09:53:39
Genuinely enough, about ten years ago I’d have said the league, but now, hmmmm might just have to look after the family as well. That’s fantastic to hear as well Salah mate.

{Ed001's Note - whereas I am the other way round, ten years ago it would have been great, my daughter was young etc. Now I would rather earn the money for myself than win it, especially having read the accounts of lottery winners and how it affected their lives. Very very few enjoy the money like you think they would.}


12.) 24 Mar 2019 10:45:46
Yeah ed1, used to scoff when my mum said more money more trouble but half get it - it certainly ain't easy managing with a complete lack of financial restraint.
Still - I want it! 😀.

{Ed001's Note - it is not just that. It is the begging off people that harass them etc as well. And family are usually the worst.}


13.) 24 Mar 2019 19:59:52
Salah, if you don't mind me asking, what happened to the thugs who jumped you? I commend you on your positive attitude really look forward to seeing your posts.


14.) 25 Mar 2019 10:52:30
Thank you Stone.

Ill be honest mate, I didn't want to go further with it, I was happy for them to walk but it went further out of my control. One walked free and 2 got time, it was actually on the BBC website for a day or so and I had to have my ugly mug on there! Lol but more than anything I just hope they've learnt their lesson and don't make the same mistake again. I hold no grudges mate, we move on :) . If I hear of them doing anything remotely similar again then yeah it'll be a different story but I have my doubts.


 

 

14 Mar 2019 02:05:29
Now that in certain competitions accumulated yellow cards can result in a game ban I think they should be reviewed and possibly rescinded.

I'm not talking about Robbo's here I'm talking about Fabinho's, where he clearly got the ball.

I guess the counter argument to this is that there are probably yellows that should have been issued but are missed by refs. They say they won't re-ref a game. But c'mon, there's so much money in the game - spend it on correct decisions.

ps- gah, Robbo is suspended. NoOo.

stoneage

1.) 14 Mar 2019 06:07:27
He did get some of the ball stoneage, but he went through the man first. I'm guessing the yellow was an accumulation of fouls.


2.) 14 Mar 2019 06:57:37
He went through Rodriguez from behind mate. Stone wall yellow. He got the man first unfortunately. It was a good tactical foul because Bayern had an overload and it was 1-1 40 minutes in. They score then and it's a different game.


3.) 14 Mar 2019 09:52:35
Totally agree with Adam. That was as clear a yellow card as you could see.


4.) 14 Mar 2019 09:56:54
Is their any holding mid that you guys would swap for fab in the prem? Not for me. Kante and fernandinio are class but I think fab is stronger and better defensively. I think he will be considered the best holding mid in the world in 5 years time.


5.) 14 Mar 2019 13:22:00
Robbiesline, amen to that fella.

#11morewins.

stoneage

1.) 25 Feb 2019 05:57:03
#A lot of tantrums?
Injuries galore yesterday, City lost Laporte and Fernandinho too apparently.
11 wins would be nice but can’t see it myself.
Take it game by game. I’m feeling better about yesterday now.
We’ve only been beaten once all season, absolutely fantastic effort so far.
Cmon you Redmen!


2.) 25 Feb 2019 09:15:34
Hi Juicer - 1 defeat all season is fantastic, but 3 draws in our last 4 PL games is the equivalent of losing 2 games (6 points dropped) . We have to improve or we could end the season with only 1 loss and finish 3rd.

The pressure is obvious in the players, and it is really showing.

After Leicester and West Ham we all got over excited at beating the mighty Bournemouth at home.


 

 

12 Feb 2019 02:02:57
Competition is so tight right now, I have a horrible feeling that we will come second in the league this season on goal difference. Wouldn't that be the absolute worst case scenario? Can you imagine?

We are so close. We're so strong. If we don't win it this year, I'm confident that if we strengthen again over the summer, we will definitely have a great shot next season. The important thing will be to keep hold of Klopp. I'd love to see him build a dynasty and that's the kind of thing that's worth waiting for.

stoneage

1.) 12 Feb 2019 05:23:14
That dynasty won't be built if we keep loosing titles and cups on goal differences and silly performances.
By now, Klopp could have won a league cup, an europa league, a champions league and now he is in pole position for winning the a league. You cannot keep coming 2nd. This is the season to win it. Otherwise the media will definitely label us chokers and while i don't give jack about what the pundits have to say, it is an unnecessary badge to carry.
Also, We definitely have the team to win it this season. We need to support and make voice ourselves that we are desperate to win it. we have the most balanced first team any day in EPL.
I don't want to tag along with the sentiment if - not this year than next. Yes ofcourse we will continue to support till eternity and i don't care when we win it, but truthfully, it be bloody good if we win it this year and then build a dynasty based on this title win. I mean we are just 12 wins away. Get in LADS we can do this.


2.) 12 Feb 2019 05:42:39
Mourinho won more in a similar period akrubbish. Stoneage is talking about consistently competing which is something we have done for decades.


3.) 12 Feb 2019 08:26:34
Obviously meant "have not done in decades".


4.) 12 Feb 2019 08:56:05
So if we win this year we won't be able to do it consistently for decades? what kind of logic is that?
Also mourinho won more yet got sacked from two clubs (different reasons though) . If Klopp doesn't win nothing say next year i am pretty sure the pressure would just go crazy on him. If you don't win much top players stop reacting to managers and look for better winning opportunities. It has always happened. Liverpool would not be able to hold players like salah mane firmino and van dyk if we keep building and don't win nothing.
Again we are in pole position to win and so we must not think for anything less.


5.) 12 Feb 2019 09:00:04
Hold your nerve lads, 12 games to go 🤨.


6.) 12 Feb 2019 09:38:27
We’ve only lost one game all season. We haven’t sold our best players and we’ve brought players in. Some of our younger players are doing well and we have a bigger stand too. The club is moving in the right direction title or no title.
City have gone up a gear and we are starting to see our key players return to fitness and let’s be honest our fixtures for the remaining games aren’t unreasonable. There is nothing but excited nerves from our fans to indicate we won’t take home the trophy. Keep your feet grounded lads!


7.) 12 Feb 2019 11:24:49
akrubbish - we all want to twin the title this year. but some here are getting carried away as if we'll never have a chance again. And that is the point I think the OP was making is that the big picture is more relevant here. The club are actually moving in a direction they haven't been able to sustain for decades. Win or lose this season, that in itself is progress and incentive for top players to come to us. I think these guys can see the vision now and direction that FSG and Klopp are taking the club in.


8.) 12 Feb 2019 13:15:33
I’m hoping for a dynasty too, stoneage.

I just hope we don’t fall at dallas-t fence. 🤞

🙈😂.


9.) 12 Feb 2019 13:30:43
Love it zed.


10.) 12 Feb 2019 15:27:33
I hate it when people go on about us not winning trophies then list the finals we’ve been in. The fact is under Klopp we have a good chance of winning trophies, the trick is to be able to compete in the competitions first then eventually the trophies will come.
We lost on penalties to City in the League cup, Moreno had a mare in the Europa League and Karius threw away the champions league. How is any of that just down to Klopp? He did his job by getting us there and then circumstances went against us.
The main thing as I said is to consistently compete, then the trophies will come. Getting rid of a manager that has proven he can compete with the very best would just set us back years. Regardless of whether we win it this year we have to keep Klopp.
I’d be a lot more worried if we weren’t getting to finals or were way behind in the league but we’re not. We have proven under Klopp that we are one of the best teams around we just need to keep the faith and stop whinging like spoiled brats because we’ve only got to the CL final but we didn’t win. 99.9% of football fans will never even see their team play in a CL final and we’ve been in 3 out of the last 13.
We are one of only a handful of teams that has a chance of winning the major trophies yet some are still not happy. I just don’t understand the thinking I really don’t.


11.) 12 Feb 2019 17:10:08
I think that the easiest opportunity we have had to win the EPL title was in 2013/ 2014, but it was not meant to be. We have a clear opportunity now, but the situation and environment was completely different. 2013/ 14 was all about on-field performance, with management and everything else in a chaotic state full of missteps and mistakes. Even if we had won, no one would expected us to win the next year with Suarez gone and Rodgers and staff doing their usual thing (look at what happened with all the players they bought with the Suarez money? ) .

The situation now is completely different. Everything has been looked at from the ground up in terms of training facilities, stadium expansion, development of youth and investing in players with current ability and/ or future potential. Even the commercial side of the business is being run far better than it has been, and that has a massive effect on the which players you are able to put out on the pitch. What I am saying is that the environment to create a dynasty is better today than it ever has been for us in the EPL era.

Dynasty to me means 10 years. Not necessarily winning every title and trophy in sight. But at least dominating for that much time. Dominating and scaring the sh*t out of everyone every single weekend and mid-week. If Klopp wins titles for 2-3 years this will be known as the "Klopp years". If the team is able to win and dominate for as long as a decade then this will be known as the "Klopp Dynasty". Pretty much the same as Fergie, I would say.


12.) 12 Feb 2019 19:11:49
The first title is ALWAYS the hardest one to win cos of the long drought that came before it. That is what this team is dealing with. We became a much better team the moment BR was sacked and Klopp walked in the door. That much is a fact. We built from the ground up with money yes, but with a true strategy behind the types of players being targeted not just for their talent BUT their mentality as human beings. We just have to get the monkey off our backs by winning the first title in 3 decades and hopefully this year will BE the year.


13.) 12 Feb 2019 21:16:48
Whilst I agree with much of what you say here ak, if we don't win it I don't think it will be down to silly performances. I'm not sure we have the most balanced team in the league, even if we did, we need the strongest squad, not just starting 11.

If we lost to City on goal difference or by 1-3 points, we could still finish with a points total that would have seen us crowned winners in almost any other PL year. We can't control what City do, but we could end up looking back at the games we played against them this season: we got 1 point, they got 4.

That said, it's till in our hands. 12 wins or 11 and a draw and it's ours. Easier said than done though hey.


 

 

05 Feb 2019 21:05:30
I think what people are worried about is that at the start of the season we were playing badly but getting results. Now were playing badly and not getting them! So where is the turnaround going to come from?

People were saying that Klopp was saving the players from burnout at the end of the season by reining them in a bit at the start. Well now is the time to unleash the full effect! We need a response. I honestly thought that this would happen against Leicester- to keep the pressure turned up.

If we can get the fab four scoring for fun again like last year, our new defensive solidity should mean we could be winning games 4-0 rather than 4-3.

stoneage

1.) 05 Feb 2019 21:14:08
Not sure Coutinho is going to get involved 😂.


2.) 05 Feb 2019 21:19:59
Stoneage, how can we unleash the full effect when half your potential starters are injured in critical areas? City lost Fernandinho and lost 3 out of 4 games. Just for perspective. How was Klopp supposed to know that VVD would get so ill he lost 4 kilos or Milner would get so ill he had to travel separately with the team before the WH game or that Gini or Hendo would be out at the last minute vs WH or that Gomez's injury would take him out for the whole season? I mean, I can keep going. We can't keep acting like these things don't affect the team and preparation for games cos they do.

These are the realities we have been dealt and we have to find a way to rise above them and still have a chance when out of it. Support and positivity is what is needed now cos the boys and manager deserve it for what they have done thus far and if we abandon them now (like many did at Anfield vs LC) then we should not be surprised if we don't win the title.


3.) 05 Feb 2019 21:58:24
Interesting perspective RW, thanks. Clearly injuries are affecting us, as they would any team. But with the signings we made over the summer we are in many ways stronger than we were last season. I am wondering if it is down to tactics, rather than personnel. Shaq and Fab give us a new dimension going forwards, so why are we scoring less? Last night it seemed to me that the players could be a bit over-coached. they were over-thinking it when they got to the edge of the box. A couple of times Firmino could have run at goal or shot, but in every case they opt to try two thread the needle passes instead, handing the advantage to the WH defenders.

Whilst I appreciate that we have injuries, I am wondering why Klopp doesn't take the shackles off the players that are not injured. It's either that, or the pressure is getting to the players, cos they don't look like themselves.

ps KK92- Shaq is now part of the Fab 4. It's like when Ringo replaced Pete Best!


4.) 05 Feb 2019 22:41:59
Stone, nice to have a good discussion for a change in the midst of this OTT mayhem currently going on. I fully agree with your points and premise and you have good arguments to make. It could be that our boys are being over-coached and are hence, over thinking things. It could also be that they are being over-coached hence, over-thinking things cos they lack confidence due in themselves which is affecting their decision-making.

Football is an instinctive game where confidence is huge. When you are confident, you don't go to things. They come to you. Check the players last night. They mostly made "safe" passes. Why? Cos they are no confident enuff to make that telling pass or take risks cos they know that mayhem could happen should a pass go astray and we get caught out. Bobbie was a great example. He put every foot wrong last night and that is my point.

The current state of affairs is affecting the players mental state and Klopp (if you saw his post game presser, is feeling it too. I propose that they go back to basics and just focus on football. Forget the title, forget City the whole thing. Focus on football and getting that mojo back and let's unleash that on B'mouth come Sat. Cheers, man.


5.) 06 Feb 2019 12:31:05
Maybe the team mentality and preparations are fine and the only problem here is the fans unrealistic expectations, someone a couple of months back joked that it may take a record breaking number of points to win the league this year and that got stuck in the fans young minds . And they started to expect a win in every game . well maybe its not a record breaking season, we may drop more points, city will definitely drop points, I don't know come May who will be champion, but I know I am going to enjoy every game until then, because its been one of the best seasons for us for a while, good football, good team spirit and we need to ignore everything else and support the boys.

To be fair, even if he got a German to teach him English while he was at Leipzig, the Scouse accent is quite hard to understand. What's the prevailing accent at Melwood, do you think?

Thanks Ed, I'm really looking forward to watching all of these ties now.

Great suggestion for an article Stone- my bro from another era ;)

Ed001- re Dustan Tadic, why do struggling teams such as Saints often loan out their best player?
