MNF Greatest English Football Sides

Recommended Posts

It was done on a points system I think so hard to argue but its surprising to not see our 87-90 side up there. I think being our of Europe meant they didn't get a European Cup or two that would have almost certainly happened with that bunch. 


1 - Liverpool 1975-1978 (Bob Paisley)
2 - Man Utd 2006-2009 (Alex Ferguson)
3 - Liverpool 1981-1984 (Bob Paisley, Joe Fagan)
3 - Man Utd 1998-2001 (Alex Ferguson)
5 - Nottingham Forest 1977-1980 (Brian Clough)
6 - Arsenal 2001-2004 (Arsene Wenger)
6 - Chelsea 2004-2007 (Jose Mourinho)
8 - Tottenham 1960-1963 (Bill Nicholson)
8 - Everton 1984-1987 (Howard Kendall)
10 - Aston Villa 1980-1983 (Ron Saunders / Tony Barton)
10 - Man Utd 1965-1968 (Matt Busby)
12 - Leeds 1968-1971 (Don Revie)

Amazed King Kenny not worth a mention there 3 league titles including a double when it was rare and that 87-88 team is still for me the best team we ever had.

Done with max points for winning in europe. 

It was an interesting debate. Enjoyed it.

So by my calculations our current side have 14 points based on the last three seasons (I'm awarding us the title this year) with the possibility of adding more from this year's CL and FA Cup.

I think our 87/90 team would beat any of them. Hard to compare eras though. 

And had it not been for the European ban then those lads would have brought home at least another 2 European Cups.

    • Jürgen Klopp has spoken of his true joy in getting his squad back together for full-scale training ahead of the resumption of the Premier League season on the 17th of June.

      The Reds stand on the cusp of a deserved title victory, needing just two more wins from their remaining fixtures to clinch number 19.

      Rather than making up for lost time, Klopp told the Official site that he is taking a methodical approach.

      “We could work on all the things we wanted to work on. 

      “The first week was already really good with the small groups, I enjoyed that as well, because it was just important to get on track again, to get used to the pitch and ball and boots and all that stuff. 

      “And now we work on tactical things, that works really well.

      “We don't have to be match-fit now.

      “We try it with increasing intensity, day by day, but we have to be fit on the 19th or 20th, whichever day they will give us against Everton, I think. 

      “That’s the moment when we want to be at 100 per cent."

      Once the season resumes in earnest, it will be the best part of three months since a competitive match was played.

      In that time, players have been able to give their mind and body a rest, but with everything set to be condensed, the manager feels one season will roll into the next.  

      “It is a roundabout three weeks until the resumption.

      “That is good. We want to use that and we will. It’s our pre-season; how I said, we don’t expect a long break in between the seasons, so this is a very important period for us.

      “We never had nine weeks without football training in our lives – since we played football, pretty much. That’s all different but interesting as well.

      “We enjoy the situation, that’s really all good. 

      “And it makes all the difference for us, to be honest, to come together and have this hour or two here together.

      “You get this contact, feedback as well on the pitch directly, not via a computer or a screen. It's a massive, massive lift."

      The next step in the process is the actual dates of when the remaining fixtures will be played.

      Klopp says that is something the whole squad is looking forward to hearing about.   "Now of course, it’s more and more interesting when we play where, the times are really important because we will see how we can organise the travel stuff.    "So, the situation keeps us busy, that’s absolutely OK.   "But on the pitch everything is fine, that’s really great.   "Around, we organise it as good as possible and use the situation.”
