You’re making me feel like everything’s going to be ok mate.

I don’t think we’re getting top four now.
I think you will, still a lot of games and football to play yet. If Henderson injury is bad it will be a tough ask though.

They've had injuries obviously but they also made the decision to let Lovren go and are purposely playing midfielders at CB rather than playing the younger back ups. They maybe got complacent after having such a good run of no injuries to key players.

Their luck in close games has run also ran out. Last season Richarlison misses that early chance and they scrape a win instead without being convincing.

We won the league and were champions league finalist's the following season :houllier: :houllier:
And weren't we like one bad refereeing decision away from retaining the title too? I remember Chelsea beating us 1-0 via a dubious Drogba goal. I dont think finishing second and reaching the CL quarterfinals is falling of a cliff, we were still competitive even if we weren't the dominant force we were in 06-08.

Was 2-1 and Drogba made it 2-0. Var rules that out, but then rules out Machedas goal.
We were poor in that game as I think we needed a draw and went in with that mentality, much like we did with City years later when we lost on GD.

But yeah, we didnt fall off a cliff at all. We fell of a cliff after Fergie left, but from 08-13 we lost the title twice (once by a one point and once by GD and made the CL final twice). And shouldnt have lost a FA cup semi final to Everton either. And a league cup or two as well right?
Wasnt the best example to use.

Liverpools home record reminds me of Arsenals invincible streak. Once they lost that, it seemed they were shattered and were capable of losing every game.
And with Liverpool losing to Burnley, it seems like they can lose every game at home (and aura was carrying them)

Relegation form over the last 11 games. Keeps getting a free pass by the media because of the 'injury crisis' narrative.

Yeah, feck the European Cup, PL title and world club cup he's won very recently. Why would anyone give this fraud a free pass?

We all wish he could be more like Ole, he knows how to handle Leipzig. That guy needs no free pass at all. Not one. I mean just look at Utd's points since Christmas because that's now a thing.

....Them Klopp himself changed the subject to the Premier League title race, claiming that this season clubs won’t need to be close to perfection to lift the trophy, seemingly trying to hint that Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City aren’t as good as Liverpool had been last year.

“Sometimes it’s just impossible because we’re human beings. And we’re always… not only Trent, or myself, or you, we’re all our biggest enemies. We all have to fight ourselves a lot of times. And if the circumstances aren’t perfect it’s difficult to play a perfect season.

“If you want to win the league, you must play a perfect season. As perfect as possible. This year, maybe, you must not play a perfect season, because, maybe if Manchester City win the league, it was for sure not a perfect season for them. But you have to be close to perfection. That’s really tricky.”

How is losing 3, drawing 3 and conceding more than 30 goals a perfect season?

So, to win the league requires all the stars to line up. I would think this perfection he seeks probably won't happen again, and his own outlook is just as unencouraging. He seems to be looking for an out.

What a load of bollocks, United won title after title without ever needing anywhere near 100 points. Winning the title is about pacing yourself and hitting top form when it matters, nothing to do with perfection.

fecking idiot.

And, to all those losing their shit over Ole, that table demonstrates our consistency over what has been a difficult run of form.

Exactly, that's how United won 13 PL titles under Fergie, as opposed to Klopp's one, the same number as Blackburn and Leicester.

It’s brilliant. The more Klopp, Liverpool fans and the narrative continues to be that it’s injuries, var, covid etc at fault the more it will have a detrimental effect on the players.
The players need a rollicking and they don’t seem to be getting it outside of maybe Klopp in the dressing room. It seems to be encouragement to feel sorry themselves and look to uncontrolled forces to explain their bad run. Long may it continue!

Our fans seem to be so obsessed over his comments. I personally don't take any Liverpool's manager words seriously. They get bought into their cult and become part of them. If his team doesn't beat Sheffield on Sunday, I fear for his sanity. Liverpool will almost likely not make top 4 anymore.

The managerial equivalent of aiming for the keeper when they’ve gone up for a corner in the last minute, even though there’s no reason to do it other than how great it’d be in the unlikely event it works.

It is such a shame that Liverpool are the only club to get injuries. It is so unfair.

At least Klopp won't have to worry about that when he goes back to manage closer to home, in Germany.

This is why managers talk about referees.

Prior to Klopp, Pep and Jose going in on us, we were getting plenty of decisions.

Since then, we have had absolutely nothing.

I don’t understand what the referee saw on the VAR replay that made him think no penalty. The arm was in an unnatural position, had plenty of time to get out the way and it definitely takes it away from Greenwood.
