    He started off fairly magnanimous, rightly praising the excellent performance (best I've seen Liverpool play since before that lad wrote Klopp a letter).

    By the end of the interview he was ranting like a loon.

    Handball!

    I like that clip of him calling Liverpool fans wanting a high-five 'fucking idiots'.

    At least someone in English football seems to be taking it seriously.

    In his defence at least he didn't come across as a passive aggressive wanker like Jose or Pep.
    He just seemed genuiney annoyed that his rapidly degenerating Liverpool team coudn't break them down.

    I love the "you're not playing football right" excuse, like it's something that there's absolutely no human way to counterract.

    He wasn't a million miles away.

    But yeah, not as bad as those two big babies.

    It was literally the Pep excuse when he came to England. "I play football right, you don't so I won in spirit".

    Now he just hides it behind the passive agressiveness you come to expect from the teenage brother you just beat at FIFA.

    I notice that Pep does this weird Trump thing when they don't win as well. Overly praising a lacklustre performance, "the team was great, the performance was fantastic, best of the season, I'm so proud of this team"..etc..

    Since Pep can't dope his players anymore, they have been pretty shit.

    Liverpool have dropped off this season big time. They need an out and out striker much in the same way we do.

    Sure Bob has cute touches and link up play, but he scores nowhere near enough and is very overrated. With those two rapid fuckers down the wings and the quality of TAA's crossing it is just a waste.

    @JYM60 Last night was our best performance of 2020...

    Firmino deffo has not been his best recently, but he is one of the most key pieces to the way we play. He is superb at winning the ball back, or closing in in a manner to make a defender back into a corner created by a team mate.

    Alisson being injured has cost us the fa cup and champ league. I'm not one of the sad fucks hating on Adrian, he has been superb as a stand in up until a couple of weeks ago. But his level from Alisson has been made more pronounced this spell.

    You're not one of those fans that are saying he should be stoned to death and left to bleed out in a field then?

    9 goals in 37 league and CL matches is pretty shit though. I thought the key to how you play is long balls for Mane and Salah to run onto from what I've seen.

    @JYM60 no fuck those twats.

    The long ball aspect is only more frequent a tactic done against teams who have a high line. Most do not have against us.

    Our main (at least when playing well like last night) is a high press, winning the ball back quickly to get possession high up the field with lots of their players running the wrong way.

    You can tell Dicky really watches the games and concentrates super hard. That's some incredible insight.

    Think Liverpool are top in the league for set piece goals too. Don't tell Klopp though. They're the only ones playing 'real football', remember.

    Simeone still hasn’t been knocked out of the CL by a side that doesn’t include Ronaldo. Which is quite cool.
