    A defender and 3 pacey forwards who have been at the club before Liverpool ones, sure Paul, we're sure copying them. :lol:

    It's not copying . Its football you are not going to copy exactly another's team style but you are obviously going to look at other successful teams see what works for them and try and emulate certain things .

    I don't see why people are being defensive about it we clearly want to play a much more similar style of liverpool's than City's style .

    It doesn't mean Liverpool invented what they do either but they have been successful doing it since Klopp came in so what's the problem?

    The way Ince phrases it implies that Ole has looked directly at Liverpool and tried to copy exactly what they're doing, which I don't think is the case. There are similarities such as wanting to play from the back, wanting to have high levels of fitness and press high up the field etc, but these are similarities that almost all the top sides around in the league share at the moment. He's not really trying to emulate Liverpool any more than he's trying to emulate Spurs (we also play with pace on both flanks, Poch signed Toby) it's just that pretty much all the top 6 (and even the likes of wolves/leicester/everton) are following certain blueprints.

    You don’t understand. It’s the style we had with SAF and it’s the style Ole also applies at Molde. Full stop. Nothing to do with Liverpool and gegen press or whatever it is they are doing.

    So whoever doesn't agree with you is insecure. Sounds legit.

    We bought Harry Maguire just like Liverpool bought VVD. We have three pacy forwards in Lingard, Rashford and Martial, again, just like Liverpool. So Ince is saying we are copying Liverpool.

    I think the quote is fake. Even for Paul Ince that's a pretty dumb thing to say.

    If Ince was smart (he wouldn't be Ince) he he would have said something like "half a dozen Bundesliga managers" could have set up a pressing system and bought the best 2 English defenders not already at big clubs.

    Anyone catch him on Talksport last Friday? He was asked if he could only have played for Utd or Liverpool, who would he pick. I lost the radio signal and missed his answer. Anyone know what it was?

    What the... Can I get his spot and he can go to the newbs!
    We are not copying Liverpool, full stop. Some of our players have the same characteristics as theirs, in the same position. Also, regarding your comment about atleast we're not copying City: let's say we were copying another team, why shouldn't it be City, a team that won the league last season.

    He has got something against Ole. Since he has come in, he has jumped to critise him. I get the feeling he feels like why wasn't he looked at for the job?

    Maybe because he is a below average manager?
