It would be just like Liverpool for them to hyper-focus on the Utd game, get a win, participate in a self congratulatory orgy, then crash afterwards into a poor run.

It is Utd v Liverpool at Anfield, so yes it has a little more on it than the standard match but Mourinho will take the long view.

No doubt Klopp has his plus points but efficiently managing a team of young men to achieve a long term aim appears to be completely beyond him.
To be fair, he did a fantastic job at Dortmund; and they seemed to have little problem at the business end of the season, though the German winter break was probably huge for them. You just canít keep losing your best players every season and not be affected eventually.

That said, heís losing his marbles completely over here. Heís easily the most annoying cunt on any touchline, anywhere. Letís hope BM pinch him back when they bin Ancellotti and the scouse end up with Big Sam.

Lost 14 times in his final season. Out of 34 games. Scored 47 goals, finishing 7th in a league with only a couple of quality sides.

The following season under Tuchel they won 24 out of 34 and scored 84 goals, and Weigl was the only major signing brought in.

You'd imagine his zany personality is enough to lift a side, especially one where he's brought in mid season and the mood is dark. But it'd grate after a while. Footballers are smart enough to recognise a numpty when they see one.

Though they were actually bottom midway through the season IIRC? So you could argue he recovered the situation quite well tbf.

But, then again, why would we want to be?

He runs players into the ground. It must be absolutely exhausting playing for someone like that. I should imagine guardiola's players feel the same.

Guardiola at least has players who can come in to rest others.

Hopefully by March they're knackered though, and we can stroll to the title

Their brains are all scrambled, through years of failed predictions.

They're basically religious, god loving, Jesus freaks, who every year find out god doesn't exist and their life has been a lie.

Their memory 99% resets in August and away we go again...that 1% is always nagging in the soul and deep down they know they're living in a looped infinite time zone where LFC fail every season...
Destined to watch others win what they never have or will.


Heysel karma purgatory.

One more poor result could see them exiting the CL, well I hope so.

Of course, but Maribor are terrible and Spartak won't keep them out at home. And neither of those are getting points off Sevilla. I'd love it, love it but not happening.

Yeah, they'll be fine in this group, but the more games, the better. They'll be knackered by February.
