Since we're European and World champions, every league on the planet must be weak.


Also four English teams out of four in the finale of the European competitions last year is a clear sign of a weak league.

Who gives a shit what the say. 

 

Last season all 4 European finalist play in the Premier league. And all have progressed again. 

 

City will still likely get 80 plus pts. 

Leicester could get 70 odd. The rest dropped back to the pack and others have got better.

“If it’s so weak, why aren’t your team doing better?”

 

”As European and World Champions, Liverpool transcend all leagues and are exempt from that appraisal on quality, and as that slight obviously doesn’t apply to us, we couldn’t possibly comment”

One of my favourites is when people use the fact that clubs who’ve typically been around the top four in the last decade or two are struggling as evidence of a weak league, as though their status is a challenger irrevocably static. You might as well go back further and say it’s weak unless Sunderland, Huddersfield, Aston Villa and Everton are in contention.

Compare it to when the Mancs won the treble. Tottenham were shitter, Man City didnt have unlimited cash, Leicester were lower table plodders, Chelsea didn't have unlimited cash until 2004 and teams like Crystal Palace could never spend £35m on one player. Everton bought a Brazilian international for £50m last season. Wolves bought Ruben Neves from Porto before they even came up. I know there's some dodgy Portuguese agent involved but he would probably rather play in the Premier league than most other leagues. 

 

In 1999 Arsenal were their only really serious competitors having won the league the season before. The Mancs drew something like 12 games as well. 

 

The wealth distribution has helped mid table teams buy players from other leagues, where they have a chance of league titles and playing in Europe because these players want to test themselves in England. Burnley have more money than Ajax or PSV Eindhoven.

 

The only reasons that people think its weaker is because Spurs, Arsenal and Chelsea are in transition and the Mancs are shite. Yet they all have players who have cost tons of money and are regulars for their international sides.

If I had anyone around me who wanted an answer, I suppose I'd go looking for stats showing the amount of money the Prem is spending on players, as opposed to the other European leagues.

 

Look at prices paid for players leaving the Prem vs arriving.

 

Look at the league with the most CL-winning managers and total CL wins by all managers, etc.

 

Things like that.

If we are supposedly shite and yet dominating this league, that says more about the shitness of everyone else than it does about us. We're also the reigning European and World champions so that must mean the entire sport of professional football is shite.

Actually an argument about just how mentally good we are. Unprecedented. None of the teams in the lower half would struggle in any of the other major leagues. The whole league is full of expensive internationals.

I'm just grateful that the League is finally as weak again as each of the times that we won our 18 titles.

 

Much obliged to association football clubs for their magnanimity this particular season.

It's just yet another bullshit excuse from our haters to justify how Liverpool have become so good. Those cunts will never give us credit for actually being a great team and will come up with shit like "the league is weak", VAR and all the other nonsense to discredit us. Fuck them, we should not even have to dignify their obsessive hatred with an argument. Just ignore them and enjoy this incredible time to be a Liverpool supporter.

    • Sick bastard. And I'm not talking about Boorish
    • Whatever the rights and wrongs of players salaries are it's a bit fucking rich of Hancock to be whining about it when his fucking party has been slashing the NHS budget at every opportunity for years
    • Liverpool have earmarked a couple of exciting talents from the Bundesliga as Jürgen Klopp looks to boost his all-round squad depth.

      The Daily Express (via German publication Express) says that Denis Zakaria and Marcus Thurum are two players that have come to prominence this season with the duo being key figures in the fine season of Borussia Monchengladbach as they currently sit in fourth position.

      Zakaria is a Swiss international who plays in the Defensive Midfield role.

      Standing at 190cm and coming in at around 80kg, Zakaria is a physical specimen and his strengths lie in his physicality and ability to shield his opponent away from the ball.

      He also has elite endurance and is comfortable in possession.

      The 23 year-old recently spoke about his future with Man United and Bayern Munich also been linked to his services.

      “It spurs me on and gives me strength to improve further. The fact that other clubs are dealing with me shows that I perform well. 

      “But I only concentrate on Borussia. We can still achieve great things this season." 

      While it is true that Liverpool have Fabinho in the holding midfield role he has had a inconsistent campaign to date, and some competition could push the Brazilian to the level he produced in the second half of the 2018/9 campaign.

      The other name mentioned in the report is Thuram.

      The 22 year-old is the son of French legendary defender Lilian who played for Monaco, Parma, Juventus and Barcelona and is the most capped player for the French national team.  

      In direct contrast to his father, Marcus is a forward who signed for the German club last summer after previously playing for Guingamp and Sochaux in Ligue 1.

      On his arrival, Gladbach sporting director Max Eberl said : “He's a fast, robust and dangerous assailant who fits very well in our squad and we are sure he will make his way in the Bundesliga.”

      So far he has scored 10 goals in all competitions for his club this season.

      The scouting report on Thuram says that he is quick, direct and with the upper body strength to clear defenders out the way and his game has been sickened to Man United forward Anthony Martial.

      He has represented France in all the under-age levels and it is believed he is close to getting his first senior call-up.

      With the burden of the current front three at an already high level, it could be increased to unprecedented levels in what could be a cramped calendar due to the Covid-19 outbreak.

      So having a player like Thuram with significant senior experience while still being of a young age could be a smart bit of business for the Reds.
