I think we'll be at our best when we need to be at our best. The amazing thiing about this team is how well it economises on its energy. They do as much as they have to do in each match. That's how teams win titles, but I'm not sure any other team has done it as well as this one.

Our game management is fantastic. Stepping up the pace or slowing it down as necessary.

Apparently, no team has been this far ahead at any point in any top flight season. Ever.

 

Klopp talked about making their own history and fuck me they're going for it.

The old title-winning teams did that with massive help from being able to pass the ball back to the keeper. I remember games in which little happened after about 70 minutes except us getting the ball, passing it back, getting the ball again, passing it back again, etc etc. The way we husband energy these days, when there's so little chance for a break, is incredibly impressive.

If you split Liverpool's current points tally into two sides: 'Liverpool Home' and 'Liverpool Away'

Liverpool Home would sit 5th in the Premier League table, with 39 points, 2 points behind Chelsea

Liverpool Away would sit in joint-5th placed (along with Man United, Spurs & Wolves) on 34 points.

A hat-trick of assists from Firmino has almost slipped under the radar among the celebrations of a 4-0 win. What more can anyone say about this most selfless, intelligent player?

Second game this week I've watched from my hospital bed

No idea what you're in for, but (based on my assumptions of the standard TLW lifestyle) I hope they managed to remove it unbroken and that the stitches in your sphincter heal soon.

Glen Johnson on SSN was still saying Soton were the better team even when it was 3-0.

He also said something like Stoke would finish above us when he left. silly Glen.

Rode the luck early on.

 

But as mentioned, there's a sense that even had So'ton scored, it wouldn't have mattered in the long run.

 

They'd've had to keep up that effort for 90 minutes, and I don't think they could have done it.

 

LFC are just too good, too fit, and too relentless.

    • 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.
