Not saying our league position is perfect, or we will win the league, but this weekend just shows how quickly things can look brighter. Maybe city won't drop anymore points, maybe they will and maybe we won't capitalise, but maybe, just maybe they will feel a bit more pressure and who knows what kloop can get out of these boys. I also think we have done well since the trio have been at the afcon. Not lost a league game and now in a final. The future is bright, the future is kloop. Ynwa.

{Ed0666's Note - we have done Supremely well without the African lads, the lads that have been injured and suffering from covid. We need to stop feeling sorry for ourselves and go on a run and try and out some pressure on the mancs.with a full healthy squad hopefully after the international break.

23 Jan 2022 19:02:26
The AFCON crowd will be quiet tonight.

I’m currently watching Nigeria v Tunisia and the crowd seem in good voice. No idea why they would be quiet.

I thought we were supposed to fall apart while AFCON was going on? Have the players not read the script or something?
Robertson looked back to his best today, superb performance.
Matip looked a bit shaky, not quite his usual self.
3 points in the bag and that final to look forward to.
It's all hotting up nicely.

Ahhhhh, a slight dig then Thunderbird, how witty, and here was I watching the Afcon and like JK thinking the fans were in great voice.

Fair play to the squad it’s been perfect result wise without the Afcon lads. Cup final and 2 league wins even if we rode our luck today.

We’ve proven we can win games without Mane and Salah but if their contacts don’t get sorted we’ll soon find out if we can manage without them over 50 games rather than 5.

And yes no player is bigger than the club and the club will always carry on. But you only have to look from 1990-2015 to see what happens when you can easily go from the top of the mountain am also ran.

A big shout to our Brazilian goalkeeper today too.
Without him we're not getting 3 points. We'd have been lucky to share the spoils.
De Gea did the same for United yesterday, 2 cracking goalkeeping performances this weekend that had a major influence on the end result.
I'd still rather have Alisson, far better all rounder.

Eds25 was Stevie smirking at you when he walked off the pitch today 😂😂.

{Ed025's Note - he was ace, and rightfully so mate..

22 Jan 2022 22:10:44
Ed025, who would you bring in? I know you lost today but I'd stick with him till the seasons out. You are in a dog fight now and if he can't inspire those players to play for the badge and fans, I'm not sure who could.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed025's Note - i agree WYred, hes our best hope at the moment mate..

23 Jan 2022 04:13:08
Inspiration doesn’t always win you football matches. You need quality as well and they have none. They have some tough fixtures coming up. Their only hope is two of the three below them are pants.

Agree1 0Disagree

23 Jan 2022 09:43:20
Everton won't go down.
They'll have enough to stay up especially if they can get Calvert Loo In back to something like he was before.
I think Digne will be a loss to them, if only for his attack threat, though.

Agree0 0Disagree

23 Jan 2022 10:39:28
Dean Smith seems to have got Norwich believing a little and they’ve picked up some decent points under him.
Newcastle will spend some money this week to forgetting strengthen.
I think this season might be Burnley’s last and Ranieri is already on borrowed time at Watford.

For me I think Burnley, Norwich and Watford will go down. But Everton need to start picking points up soon.

Siting in Aus watching liverpool vs palace. Found out l just caught C.V. off the wife but not showing any symptoms touch wood. Im a massive liverpool fan but do have a soft spot for Everton as lve had a few relatives play for them. My father he's relates to Ducan Fergerson as a second cousion. For that alone l hope he does well. Liverpool need to wake up in the second half or well end up throwing the season away. Hope we can beat Chelsea and get a cup this year and be the start for a few.

Agree0 0Disagree

23 Jan 2022 17:25:54
Everton have to be extremely careful.

They should have enough but nobody is too big to go down.

They aren’t in great form and don’t have a plethora of quality players to bail them out.

A poor appointment now and a few injuries they could be in deep trouble.

Agree0 0Disagree

Good chance tomorrow to Chip away at the lead.

City drop points. That’s a big surprise. We still got to win all our games anyway regardless so nothing changes for us. On to Selhurst Park.

Agree3 0Disagree

22 Jan 2022 22:09:12
I know there's a long way to go, but football is there to make you dream and I am dreaming!

Win tomorrow and our game in hand and the gap is 6. With city still to play the gap isn't as big as it was suggested. We are still in this but the race is on.

One win at a time but its not over just yet, and the way I look at it is they have just gone on a huge run and are still in striking distance. Time to put some pressure on.

22 Jan 2022 22:35:56
We need to win 10 in a row. Difficult but not impossible.

Agree1 0Disagree

22 Jan 2022 23:54:12
For me we have 2 big tasks on our hands and both are achievable.

We need to beat 16 teams from now until the end of the season.

Secondly we need to also beat City In our fixture which is no easy feat. In the last 8 games against them we have only beaten them once and lost 3 and drawn 4.

Even doing both them we still require a third objective of City dropping points elsewhere but as we seen today that is possible.

The first two are factors we can control. Unfortunately we can’t control the third.

It’s up to Klopp and the team to deal with the first two and then it’s let the gods decide on the third.

Agree1 0Disagree

23 Jan 2022 03:01:08
We need to beat Palace. One game at a time.

Assuming City won’t drop any more points doesn’t mean they won’t.

City must be absolutely appalling, only managing to draw against Southampton. They need a massive overhaul of their squad and probably the worst champions that have ever won the league.
This is not an overreaction.

Agree4 0Disagree

23 Jan 2022 07:24:02
Just hope we beat Palace. Got a bad feeling but just used to us doing things the hard way. I'd love it of we won the league this season. Imagine.

Was just nice to see Guardiola in his ugly, passive aggressive mood after the game. If a title race ever got close, I’d love to see if he can handle the pressure.

Agree1 0Disagree

23 Jan 2022 09:20:08
"I'll tell you, honestly, I will love it if we beat them, love it! "

I think we'll drop points today.
Hope I'm wrong and I'm ever the pessimist.

Agree0 0Disagree

23 Jan 2022 09:20:43
100% agree we need to look at beating Palace first. It’s 1 game at a time. But beating Palace doesn’t overtake City and win us the league.

I think City will still win it by a canter. But I'll still enjoy the ride whatever happens.

WarMachine they handled the pressure a few years back when they won and we finished second.
When I dream of a better squad I’m told to stop and be realistic. So as a realist we ain’t winning the league.

Agree1 0Disagree

23 Jan 2022 18:17:37
Right, two points closer to City than we were - I’ll take that.

January without Mo, Sadio and Naby went ok for me. Qualified for the League Cup Final, a win in the FA Cup and 2 wins and a draw from three league games, with the draw away at the team who are 3td in the league.

For a squad that takes a hammering from some on this forum when we fail to achieve perfection we did alright.

Agree0 0Disagree

23 Jan 2022 19:11:50
WDW we had Mane and Salah for the Chelsea game mate. In fairness I’d say it’s been an excellent January without them so far.

Agree0 0Disagree

23 Jan 2022 19:36:08
Whoops, yes, you are correct - and that was the one we drew - not sure they will be able to force their way back into the team when they get back 😉.

Hello ed1 would appreciate your thoughts on following.
We over next couple of seasons are going to see quite an overhaul of players by all accounts, both in and out. refresh, rebuild whatever u want to call it. Do u think this may sway klopp into staying a couple of extra seasons to oversee this? instead of quitting in 2024 when his present contract up, extending by 2 years say. i always felt he would go in 2024 but possibly with "overhaul" of squad and losing out on certain things due to C.V. over last couple of years maybe he would extend.

{Ed001's Note - I doubt it would be that which will influence him. It is more down to how he feels about the pressure he is under and how it affects his family life.}

22 Jan 2022 10:37:39
Having seen the professor say in countless interviews over the years that he "really doesn't need football to be happy" I think we can count on him drawing the saga to a close at midnight on 30 June 2024. I am sure he will leave with the best wishes of the club and supporters.

Agree3 0Disagree

22 Jan 2022 11:15:33
ED002 - A bit leftfield, but I often wonder if the owners offered him a sabbatical for 1 year and left Pep Lijnders in charge for a season if he would go with it and give us another 2 or 3 seasons, like the OP mentioned to complete the overhaul if by 2024 the club have not identified his replacement (if that is even possible)

Do you know if the owners have even started thinking about Klopps replacement, a short list of nice to haves if you like? Obviously nobody knows now who will be available in the summer of 2024 (apart from the Villa manager potentially) - I really hope Pep Lijnders gets it personally.

All the best - KR65.

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - They will not be thinking about a replacement at this time and there would be no thoughts about a sabattical either. They could look to having him extend his contract but Klopp's stance has been that he will leave at the end of his current deal. I think by 2024 the options available would have shifted rather.}

22 Jan 2022 12:08:12
By then Klopp will be 57 years old, I guess he could retire at that age.
I have to say though, in my estimation, after 12 months, he’ll be like a cat on a hot tin roof, he seems a bit like Shankly with that massive desire for football.
At 58, say, what does he do then, go back into football?
57 or 58 is too young to retire in my view, nice to have the option of course, but you’re far from done at that age, especially these days.
It wouldn’t surprise me if Klopp stayed for another couple of years but equally he could pack in too.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Jan 2022 12:13:47
I don't Klopp will think of retirement but he will take a year. Unfortunately for Liverpool that means he's leaving. I can't see him going back on his plans. Just enjoy it while he's here I guess.

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed077's Note - and he would have the pick of Amy job to come back to.

22 Jan 2022 12:27:05
Spot on, Juicer. It literally could go either way. Either way, I’m ready for whatever Norbert decided to do come the end of his contract.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Jan 2022 12:36:03
who is this Amy that he would leave us for?

Agree1 0Disagree

22 Jan 2022 12:40:29
Amy’s a lucky girl, Ed077.

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed077's Note - I would say Klopp would be the reacher in that relationship and Amy the settler;-)

*any job

22 Jan 2022 12:54:45
He may IR but would you really want to start a whole new project at 58?
Maybe but that seems really trying and stressful, I’d rather be in an environment that I enjoyed and knew, than starting completely anew again.
There’s no doubt in my eyes that Klopp is a Liverpool supporter in the manager’s job, that’s one of his strengths.
Difficult to break that bond and start again somewhere else.
Whatever happens at Liverpool now, Klopp has cracked it.
He’s a legend in his own lifetime in Liverpool, so there’s no pressure in that regard, other than his own high expectations.
He could go behind the scenes, as Paisley did, and even do that job from home in Germany, so part time working almost. That appeals.
I can’t see the appeal of a totally new challenge at 58 though, that feels as if it could damage your health rather than add to your life, as you should be looking to do by then?

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Jan 2022 13:41:51
Klopp is the glue that holds the club together on the field. The man has been fantastic since his arrival and the players and fans seem to love him.
FSG pulled a rabbit out of the hat appointing him. But I doubt there’s any other manager in world football that could have or can moving forward replicate how competitive we’ve been on the Net spend we’ve had. Once Klopp leaves I can’t see FSG pulling another rabbit out or changing their financial stance.

I for one will be enjoying Klopp because we won’t realise what we had or what we have once he has gone.

Agree4 0Disagree

22 Jan 2022 14:47:48
Obviously it’s still a long way off Ed001, but do you think there’s a possibility that Lijnders could take over from Klopp once he leaves? As i understand it most of the tactical innovations that have led to our success have come from him, when he replaced Buvac. I feel like it would be a mistake to not at least try our hand at continuity before pursuing an outside option. Our glory years were built on continuity of staff and had Tito Vilanova had the opportunity to succeed Pep properly i feel as though Barcelona would be in a far better place right now. Would seem silly to appoint a manager from the outside without giving him a try in my opinion.

Agree3 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - probably will be him I think.}

I always hoped and this is just DREAMING, that Mbappe became free in the summer and one of his requests was that for him to agree to move to us in the summer was Klopp stayed on for a additional two seasons minimum

Only a dream obviously.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Jan 2022 21:41:42
Spot on, JK and I mentioned the same thing before. With the owners model that we have, ONLY Klopp could have made it work and actually outperform the metrics by insane margins. Any other manager would have failed IMO and that includes Pep. The guy is a living legend and that statue couldn’t come any sooner. He has given me the best period of my LFC supporting life since 1990.

23 Jan 2022 08:44:21
I started supporting liverpool mid-eightys, the daglish team of then and klopp era now a joy to watch. that is how liverpool teams should try and play. as magnificent of men (and trophies they won) that houiller and Benitez where in many different ways there football never liverpool football for me.
