Is the high press the only way to go?

Klopp has mastered it. With his 2 fullbacks and front 3 creating their goals and VVD mastering the defensive side, his 3 CM players could be Lingard, Herrera and Mctomminy and it wouldn't make any difference to their performances.
There back 4 are very good Robinson is good going forward there front 3 and 3 cms don't give him the need to defend that much agreed, as For the cms not many would buy them for there team but in pool they fit, if the buy back Coutinhio there in trouble they will lose that energy they have in there. Going to be interesting as a lot of pundits want a more creative cm in there.

I reckon you can still hoof your way to a trophy, but yes, quick passing game with high pressing and lots of movement is the best football imho.
It is. But we do not have the tools to do so. Lukaku, Pogba, Martial...our “star players” are too lazy to press. Pressing should start from high up on the pitch
