Remember those great league winning United sides from the 90's who would get done by teams like Gothenburg in Europe.

Clearly a sign of how very strong Swedish teams were at the time!

This time last year people were saying that City were the greatest team in history, then they go out and spend another £200m in the summer, but yeh, we've come out this year and absolutely fucking destroyed them so the league must be shit.

 

Righto.

I'm just enjoying every single beautiful moment. I walk into work with a huuuge smile on my face and just a quick glance at the fans of other clubs there and they know exactly what I am thinking and feeling and that I am laughing at them inside. I don't need to say anything. They are your typical haters and I've had to endure their 'banter' for long enough, now it's my turn. It feels brilliant. They are hating the fact that we are just so good in this moment, they don't wanrt to admit it out loud, but deep down they know it and it really hurts them. I love it! They are looking for flimsy excuses, arguments, anything to try and put a dampener on our incredible team and performances for the past 18 months, but there is a quiet resignation that we are the best there is and are reaching levels that could make us the best there has ever been. They keep hoping for some kind of failure but they're not getting it and it just makes them more desperate.

 

I have the dubious pleasure of working with a couple of Chelsea fans who keep telling me how good their youngsters are. One of them tried the 'other teams are just rolling over for you this season'. I said what like your lot? 'No, not us'. Oh you mean like our bitterest rivals Everton and Utd? 'No not them'. Oh you mean teams like City and Leicester who have been fightijng for the title? 'No not them'. Oh right you mean teams like Wolves and Shefffield Utd who are flying high in the table? 'No not them'. Who then? Arsenal, Spurs? No. I just thought you're making yourself look like an utter idiot. Just acknoweldge our greatness. As I walked away I said 94 points out of 96, that is how good we are. Enjoyed that moment and I thank our mentality monsters for making all of this possible. And I'm going to keep enjoying this as these other fans have absolutely no comeback, it's just an amazing feeling!

I wonder if there’s a sort of Stockholm Syndrome at play - it’s only legitimate to win now if a club has spent an absurd amount compiling its squad. Either way, it’s getting up there with people who 'support' Ronaldo or Messi rather than the clubs they play for as a top contender for the Champions League of Shitness of Modern Football.

Objectively, this is by far the strongest the Premier League has ever been. A historically great Man City, 3 other big clubs who, whilst being inconsistent, have all competed in a European final just last year. And then, midtable and lower clubs who have the spending power of top 4 clubs in other leagues. There's absolutely no argument for this being a weak league, it's straw clutching at its finest.

 

The far better argument if you want to diminish our success this season has been opposition finishing being absolutely terrible. We probably should have conceded 5-6 more goals than we have off the top of my head.

Reading some of the opposition forums, you’d think we were absolutely shit. Hoof ball fc, worse than Wimbledon, etc. Fucking great it is. 

We've incorporated direct attacking play, crossing and long balls to complement our fluid interplay and counter pressing around the opposition's box to become more versatile as an attacking threat. That variation in our attacking play along with being world class at set-pieces is what has led to a lot of our success.

 

It's hilarious that being a more complete attacking side with numerous ways of hurting the opposition is seen as something to make fun of. Not a very bright criticism.

‘Third most long balls in the league’. Cool, we must be shit then. Because long passes are the same as ale house hoof balls hoping to get lucky with a big man up front. Oh, and FFS don’t mention that we are also in the top few for short passes. That’s mean rather than being the hoof ball team you think we are we are an intelligent, versatile team who can beat your breaks off in a number of ways. It’s almost like we’ve won 94 out of our last 96 points or something. As you say, not the smartest. 
 

That said, had we been finishing out chances a bit better, we wouldn’t appear - to the unobservant - as we are struggling our way through games. If we added the same ruthlessness to our versatility, and a couple more attacking options in midfield and up front, we wouldn’t just be steamrollering the league in points, but we’d be winning most games by four or five.

Ironically, that's one of the things that makes Klopp such a great manager, and this LFC such a great team.

 

Despite finishing second in the Prem with 97 points and winning the CL, he wasn't afraid to change things up.

 

And he's recruited players versatile enough to do it.

    • 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.
