Perhaps Liverpool are trying the Chelsea method. Fail to qualify for anything and then have a free run at the title the next season. Liverpool have a high-energy style so if they can go at 1000mph every Premier League game they'll probably finish high in the league.Tells you how good they were last season because we finished 10th after winning the league and at this stage they've had a worse points drop off this season than even that Chelsea team that finished 10th on 50 points. They're coming down from 99 points. We fell from 87 points.
Of course. Leicester were in a relegation battle yet had a lesser drop off in points.Tells you how good they were last season because we finished 10th after winning the league and at this stage they've had a worse points drop off this season than even that Chelsea team that finished 10th on 50 points.

Agreed. Even last year when everyone wanked themselves in a coma talking about how good they were, I just didn't see it. Constant sideways passing from CB to CB, long balls, a midfield of 3 workhorses who offer little on the ball and fullbacks putting in crosses after crosses. It was actually vintage Mourinho the way they played. Grinding out results, often late in the game, a very solid defense, clinical attackers.They can use every excuse under the sun, some of them are valid, some are over the top, but there's absolutely no excuse for how far they have fallen this season. Personally I think they have peaked under Klopp and for those Liverpool fans hoping a couple of injuries will return them to 'normal' they are in for a rude awakening.
If you judge it on points worse off than the previous season Liverpool are the worst. If you judge it based on overall points Leicester are the worst.The worst one had to be Chelsea under Mourinho? From champion in 14-15 to 10th place in 15-16, with their manager getting sacked half way through season.
2nd worst from us? From champion during Fergie last season, to 7th place during Moyes year?
Would explain Pep appropriating Big Sam's style.It's my belief that they are combining these drugs with caffiene pre-game which gives them tremendous energy and stamina (See above). Now the issue with these drugs is that they put strain on the heart. The player's heart rates increase and the introduction of caffeine further enhances this. So, what you need to do to negate some of the long term damage is to "cycle" off. As with any drug. The issue is that with covid the players haven't been able to have a break long enough to cycle off before the season starts again, since we only had something like a 3 week break. Therefore they started the season "off cycle" in order to give their bodies the needed time to recover and this is still the case.
I still think Chelsea is the worst. They were champions but then drop near to relegation zone until Mourinho got the sacked. Their new manger saves them climbing back up to 10th place in the end, but the quick sudden drop, or should I say “plunged into relegation zone from top of the league”, was quite an amazing scene at that time. I have never seen anything like in my lifetime of watching football.If you judge it on points worse off than the previous season Liverpool are the worst. If you judge it based on overall points Leicester are the worst.
