I do wonder this season what happens if Klopp starts slowly with very favourable fixtures. While they are very much akin to schrodingers fanbase, going from extreme to the next (being almost suicidal over FSG to simultaneously thinking they will win the league) they've never really had a bad start.
I'm looking at the transfer strategy so far (recycled limited cash coming in to buttress certain positions - Konate at CB) and I'd be worried if I'm a Kopite.

They look intent on introducing a PL unproven Elliott, and investing more faith in players like Neco Williams, Tsimakis and Minamino; and retaining players like Keita and Milner. And VVD hasn't been tested again yet and looks like struggling to be fit.

If they sell Salah late in the window they'll be sunk. As it stands I really cant make a case for them getting top 4.
 

Favourable fixtures? So the current English champions and the current European champions in the opening 7 fixtures. Right. 

 

Honestly, I am beginning to think catcher is a red on a wind up.

Why not? Winks is absolute gash. I know @aRdja rates him but I don’t know anyone else that does. 

I don’t anymore.

Just seen a Worldwide football Facebook page that says Pierluigi Collina has been voted the best referee of all time. 

 

Checked the comments and not surprisingly they are full of Evertonians calling him a cheat and a corrupt twat. 

 

All of them seem to be convinced that he took a bribe to stop Everton progressing into the CL. Even though they lost both legs 2-1. Fucking tits.

Yes great points on both and spot on as usual.

On the 1st point, this is the difficulty of the PL and in essence why FSG were the big players in the ESL (along with United to a degree, who lets face Liverpool are merely servile lapdogs for). The long terms trends are already that City and Chelsea are dominating English football, and move forward another 10 years, that's where it's heading. They must look at Arsenal are now and fear it's where they end up. To a degree we are hit with similar pressures but in a different way. if we played in Germany, we are probably in the CL regularly now, on account of being able to muscle in financially. It's one of the peculiarities of what is happening.

I actually think their plan was to press the re-set. They gave Klopp a season or 2 longer with the squad than they hoped, but he has thrown them under the bus last summer (before very quickly winding his neck in). But they've let a squad grow old together and a lot of the value has gone.

As for this academy, I must admit I have no idea where that even came from. They are not renowned for an academy and haven't been for about 25 years. They went nearly 2 decades without bringing through a single player who made 50 league games. City and Chelsea are known as big talent producers. Then you have like a United who don't have the same talent but have brilliant pathways. They have neither. They go on about that Curtis Jones, he's another poor mans Mctominay or whatever. They throw huge sums of money (agents fees, wages and sign on fees) at young players, and barring the occasional eye catching sale (always well below the reported value) it is mainly money down the drain.

I think FSG were sensible going for a re-set, but as you say the two big problems with that are if you end up re-setting below 3/4th. Once you start falling beyond that, it starts to become very difficult to fight your way back in consistently. They also completely lose the fans as well, who are completely unrealistic about their club. They view them as some sort of domestic super club. They are a team who have won 1 title, in very dubious conditions in 32 years. It's 0 leagues in 31 years in normal seasons that don't have a 4 month break and aren't played in July. That's their level now. They are not a City, a Chelsea a United in size. They're not even an Arsenal in all honesty who won 3 leagues in a short space of time.

Those unrealistic expectations they have will be petrol on the fire if they have a period of consolidation, and could make what could be a period of needed re-adjustment into one of crisis (as happened under Hodgson, where they nearly bankrupted their own club) with reckless spending.
FSG's other main asset, the Red Sox, have been allowed to peak and fall away and then rebuild again to make an assault on the top - they aren't alarmed at that, because even in the fallow period they retain their commercial pulling power. That seems to be the corporate philosophy.

I dont see any urgency from the top at Liverpool to fight back to the peak. The incomings and outgoings this summer underlines Liverpool will be allowed to coast along for another season if need be. And Id also throw in that the reaction against FSG from outside and inside the club will have placed a strain on that organisation operating holistically.

All is not well there. They'll fight the way they usually do in all competitions, but essentially they're in the doldrums IMO.

I know we have a laugh on here at our nutty neighbours but that is some of the most disturbing shit i have read. Bitterness/hatred/mental illness whatever it is is eating this twat cannot be healthy, go for a walk mate, pat a dog or something for Fucks's sake.

Well done Arsenal for winning three leagues. What other ones are they in then?

There’s 20,000 leagues under the sea, I read, must be some of those

FSG were the big players behind the ESL? And also, at the same time, manage to be servile lap dogs to Utd? Beside the massive irony, how the fuck does that even make sense?

You’re looking for logic where there is only collective insanity.
