  1. I think the biggest difference was the break. We're always ropey for a bit after a break.

    The Boxing Thread

    At what point will people stop hating on this guy? Stop doubting and start celebrating, because he's quite likely the best of his era. At this rate, he's going down as an ATG. It would be nice if more fans could let go of their own prejudices and just appreciate him while he's here. Ridiculous performance again. He's on another level to anyone else; he has so many ways to win a fight.
  3. It's really frustrating to watch Traore play like that when I was convinced years ago that he'd turn out like this. He's a force of nature now. Massive win. I really didn't feel like we'd do it once they pulled one back because we were a bit of a mess tonight, on the hole. Wolves were brilliant; glad they're out of the way.
  4. I agree that VvD was coming regardless. Not so sure we'd have got Alisson without the Coutinho money but we were always going to buy another keeper. Either way, it's still impressive business. Coutinho was our best player at the time. It was a massive ask to sell him and improve, even if it meant we had a bit more money to play with. I recall most in here weren't particularly happy when we were linked to VvD at £40m during the summer before we bought him. Then when we failed to get him and didn't sign an alternative, many were complaining and asking if he's 'the only defender in the world' and saying things like he 'won't fix the defense on his own'. The club has done insane business the last few years. Also, not many people seemed to care about the fact that he was unable to invest in the defense for absolutely ages after coming into the club. The whole LDF bullshit got coined in the football thread when I pointed that out to fans of other clubs who were saying Klopp was a fraud, the touchline antics were just an act, and some of them were even saying his position shouldn't be secure, etc.
  5. Don't be silly. Imagine Gerrard powered by Klopp hugs. He'd have been unstoppable. Not that he would really fit into our current side but that's kind of the point: Klopp doesn't have a rigid way of playing and then look to fit players into that. That's why there are no square pegs in round holes since he came in. He looks at the group and then makes signings to compliment the group. If we had a young Gerrard when Klopp came in, we probably would just be playing with a more typical right-back rather than an alien like Trent that can somehow run a game from right-back. Phil was very much a Klopp player, too. It's not like Barca came sniffing and we went "yeah, here you go. Take him, please!". We wanted to keep him and he forced his way out. Obviously the group kicked on and grew in his absence so it worked out pretty great.
  6. Minamino really reminds me of our Gini. He's got the same knack for receiving the ball on the turn and just twisting whoever's closing him down.

    Completely outboxed and then jumps on the tiniest opportunity and puts him away. Crazy power.
  8. His passing yesterday reminded me of Stevie. Just ridiculous. I see he's made the most key passes so far this season (37, with De Bruyne in second on 36).
  9. Trent's range of passing is obscene.
  10. This has been really worth the 5 hour drive so far!
  11. I really don't get this. Keita made more recoveries than anyone (12), completed more passes than anyone (108, 94% success rate), had the most successful dribbles (3/4), and the most tackles (4/4). He was fantastic, and I came away from the game thinking he's finally ready to compete for a place in the team.
  12. My mum just finished it last night. She went straight back and started season 1 again. She also sent me a message ranting about how
  13. @dugI've got tickets for the Tottenham game. It'll be my son's first trip to Anfield. A mate of mine has friends with season tickets that travel up from Hounslow. Occasionally they can't make a game, and in I swoop. Never had any problems.

    That's Rocky II. Somebody didn't pay attention at Klopp school!
  15. It's funny seeing how salty they're getting about the pace stats. It's like me every year.
