Hi guys. Hope you all are keeping safe. Great win for the team and we keep it moving.

I heard a stat that Klopp had garnered 500 PL points since he arrived at LFC. Such a ad stat and so I did the math.

Oct. 15/ 16 season- 48 points

16/ 17 season - 76 points

17/ 18 season - 75 points

18/ 19 season - 97 points

19/ 20 season: 99 points

20/ 21 season - 69 points

21/ 22 season - 37 points

TOTAL Points: 501 points and counting.


This is a mad stat, indeed.


Up Da Pool!

We will more than likely need 95 points this season. All to play for.

Mark, that was not the point of the post. It is just show how far we have come under Klopp and this team he has built from scratch. Pls, try to keep up.


3.) 13 Dec 2021 17:52:06
It doesn’t show that at all last year we got our lowest total. You can make it say whatever you want it to say. Let’s focus on this year.

ED01, this one is for you. What do you think of Villareal's Gerard Moreno? I have watched him quite a bit and I love him as a player. He is has great movement, an eye for a goal and esp. an I for a pass. Drops deep to orchestrate and works very hard pressing the oppo. and tracking back to help hence, he has a good engine on him.

What do you think of him as a potential Bobbie-type player in our system cos I think he is one of the few CF's who can play the Bobbie role. Cheers, man.

{Ed001's Note - I have not seen a lot of him sorry.}


1.) 12 Aug 2021 11:18:49
Is he not 30? Not much point replacing Bobby with someone the same age who would need to create an understanding with salah and mane. Good player though, from what I've seen.


2.) 12 Aug 2021 12:05:23
RP, Oh, I did not know he was near 30. If true, then, it's a shame cos he is absolutely brilliant, IMO.


3.) 12 Aug 2021 17:20:08
Had to check, as it wouldn't be the first time I was wrong, looks like he's 29,so same as Bobby bright-teeth!

Hello Ed01, maybe you and others can chime in here. I know a lot has been said about the cause of LFC's probs this season and where they come from. What I have been mostly annoyed about is how pundits are looking for other causes as to why we have issues whereas the cause of our issues is pretty obvious: Injuries, right? And each time I see pundits trying to say "Oh Klopp should do this or that or the other" instead of saying what is obv., has been peeing me off for weeks now.

I watched the Anfield Wrap podcast on youtube with Neil Atkinson and Rory Smith (brilliant guy) and he gave a take that I had not even looked at. Smith said that the cause of our issues is pretty obv. YET boring in the eyes of the media. He said that the cause of our issues News Flash: Injuries, yeah? However in the media, there is only so far you can go with that hence, it becomes boring.

Therefore, the media has to create another or other narratives to "create" other causes for the public and the pundits to feed on esp. online. Hence, they attack Klopp on this or that or "Why does he not play a 442 or a back 3 (as if we have the personel or the bodies to play such formations cos of you know, the injuries? )3 Or the fav from Roy Keane "He is the manager. It's his job to fix it" (funny how that NEVER applies to his buddy OGS) ". Therefore, this is all fake news drummed up by the media by design and dishonesty.

Now Rory Smith said that it is tough for Klopp to "change" stuff cos for the most part, we play well in games BUT either don't take our chances or make mistakes that eventually cost us games so it is tough for Klopp to do say Now, he did say that there are some changes Klopp could do to make us less predictable and we saw a bit of that last night vs Sheff. He played Mane central, Jones on the left and Salah on the right in attack and Bobbie in the 10 and it gave us a bit more impetus going forward and created chances and won the game. Thoughts?

OliRed

{Ed001's Note - not sure Smith is right about the changes there. That was more of a natural rotation and movement than any particular set up. Jones always gets forward, Mane often drifts central and Bobby always plays the 10. It was just working better than normal because we were making better decisions with our balls in the final third. It was just a case of doing what we were doing anyway but better. Just like when Paisley took over from Shanks, he told the players nothing would change, they would keep doing what they were doing but they would do it better. That's all we needed.

Smith is 100% right about the media. They barely talk about Sheffield United now because they have struggled with injury problems and it is not going to bring in clicks by talking about it. Unlike Liverpool, there is not a huge media machine that requires fresh LFC stories to be churned out, so the Blades can just be forgotten about. Liverpool have far too big a following to be forgotten about, so they have to look for new angles all the time and new narratives to bring in page views.}

Thanks, Ed for your input. I do agree that we were doing what we normally do but only better. I was the one who came to the conclusion of a change by Klopp during the game cos it seemed the forwards stayed in those positions a bit longer than just occasional changes in-game to keep the defence guessing.

I was thinking the same thing about Sheff. Utd regarding injuries. I could be wrong but along with us, they are the other team that has really struggled all season long with injuries BUT since no one cares about Sheff Utd nor Chris Wilder and they don't generate clicks, no one is giving their them as hard a time as Klopp and LFC are getting. Like you said, you got to go after the big fish to get clicks.

{Ed001's Note - exactly and we are one of the biggest fish for clickbait.}

Ed01 please, did you do a match review of the West Ham game yet or did I miss it? Cheers, man.

OliRed

{Ed001's Note - you must have missed it: West Ham review

If you bookmark the site it is on then you can check much more easily and quicker than waiting for me to get a chance to reply mate.}

Thanks Ed missed that. I'm glad you mentioned Phillips defending first free kick. Could have been a var goal otherwise. Likewise, gini in dm and thiago further forward. Gini I think klopp trusts him a bit more esp with hendo at cb in that position. However, surely this means Fab can be returned to play dm. He has been missed, his proactive closing down and reading of the game sets up our play. A midfield of hendo thiago and fab?

{Ed001's Note - fingers crossed!}

Much appreciated, Ed01. This is that I don't have a PC yet so I surf the internet hence this site, on my phone. Therefore, cannot bookmark this page for now.

{Ed001's Note - doesn't your phone browser have a bookmarks feature? You can then copy the bookmarks over to a PC later.}

Spot on, OMM, Flash and WDW. The Goalposts keep changing with Salah's alleged demands and if it changes so much, could it mean that nobody really knows? This question clearly never comes up.

VVVV, us not being able to compete for the world's best players has always been the reality. This is nothing new. The fact that we have been successful under Klopp is a miracle in and of itself cos that landscape has never changed. Apart from that, I agree with the rest of your post. We are where we are and we just have to deal with it.

Redjoe21, Villa have Watkins and Ings up top so not sure why Bobbie would go there and get more gale time ahead of those two hence, I agree that the source is Bobbie’s dentist.

Spot on, Ed. I don't care who they sign nor how much Arsenal spend. Focus on your own club and stop sticking your nose in other people's business esp. since you have NO idea how their finances work. Sheesh!
