That is a great point. It's why us at our best is their best opponent, because we thrive the most when we can get quick transitions. It's a great clash of styles. Unfortunately, so few teams have the quality to break effectively against them. It's very difficult.


I don't have stats to hand but their pressing seems a lot more intense this season, it's noticeably harder for opponents to put their foot on the ball to get a counter rolling. The tactical fouling is a huge issue though and that combined with their pressing and possession means most can't teams can't lay a glove on them.


Klopp and the other managers need to make an issue of it in the press like Ferguson. They did it a couple of seasons ago and it was noticeable how much more it was penalised compared to years gone by.

Previous iterations of their sides had character and personality. The likes of Robinho, Adebayor, Bellamy, Richards, Zabaleta, Kolarov, Kompany, Tevez, D. Silva, Ballotelli, Aguero, Yaya Toure, Nasri and Dzeko all had character and identity compared to the mundane shite they serve up now.



They knew how to pick em.


Brazilian footballer Robinho has lost his final appeal against a conviction for taking part in the gang rape of a woman in Milan in 2013.

On Wednesday, the Supreme Court in Rome upheld a previous ruling sentencing the 37-year-old to nine years in jail.
