Just reflecting on if someone had said to me back in July how the last 8 months would pan out.

'Ok, C.V. football has been a bit rubbish, so we're going to give you the perfect football season to make up for it. Let's get to the heart of it first - you're going to win everything this season: all 4. The lot. '

' hell, seriously? '

'Yeah. But that's not all. Everton will appoint and then sack Rafa Benitez, appoint a failing Frank Lampard and find themselves in the relegation zone at the start of May. Man United will sink into a spiral of mediocrity and terminal corporate failure and sack their club legend in November and replace him with an anonymous European. In the meantime Liverpool will win every game in the Champions League group stage, exact sweet revenge on Simeone, score 4 at Goodison, score 5 at Old Trafford, win twice in six weeks at Arsenal, your reserve goalie will score the winning pen in a cup final, and we'll give you a straightforward Champions League knockout draw against Benfica in the quarters then Villareal in the semis. The final itself looks like an expensive pain in the arse to get to, in Russia, so we'll get it moved across to Paris instead'.

'**** me, where do I sign up? '

'Well that's actually not all. The European draw is a little bit too winnable so let's have a few big European nights in there to spice it up. Let's beat the Spanish champions on their own ground, and have a party night in one of the great iconic grounds of Europe. You played in Madrid quite a bit recently, Barcelona are rubbish right now and you won in Munich the other year, so let's throw in a win in the San Siro . in fact, yeah, let's say two. Let's have 2 wins in the San Siro in the same season. In fact you'll have more away wins in Milan than Everton will manage in England all season! '

'**** me. Can I retire now? '

'Hang on, hang on . the phones going'.

(Pause)

'Divock wants a word. '.

Excellent and hilarious. And nobody could have imagined all this at the beginning of the season. It really has been one hell of a ride, and still yet to finish. Fingers crossed.

Brilliant post 👏👏.

{Ed001's Note - I agree, that is a great post.}

Brilliant post! I was watching Jurgen fist pump after the Everton game and couldn't stop smiling. What an absolute legend. My favourite liveepool manager in my living memory and I'm 42.

Great post Mrtyle. This season couldn't be more "opposite" to last season's nightmare. Here's hoping we can keep these performances and results going until we run out of games.


10.) 26 Apr 2022 12:16:56
Thanks for the wittiest post I've read on here for a while I'll be guessing your from the south end?

Iron Man, I’ve been in Myrtle Beach SOuth Carolina for 14 years…must say I don’t miss the weather back home.


12.) 26 Apr 2022 15:18:43
We were thinking of stopping there a few years ago but went further south to Savannah and Tybee island. Looks a beautiful place though mate.


13.) 26 Apr 2022 19:35:45
Nice vacation spot as well, OP.

I've always liked the idea of Joe at right back and Trent in front of him on the right side of midfield.

MyrtleBeachRed

1.) 14 Apr 2022 03:45:23
May be that's what we will do after selling Salah in the summer.


2.) 14 Apr 2022 05:55:40
I don’t understand the obsession with trying to play Trent further forward, is it because he was a midfielder in his youth or because he doesn’t fit the traditional mould of a right back. Right back is the perfect position for Trent, he should stay there.


3.) 14 Apr 2022 06:30:40
TB2 Trent is a top notch player, but RB is not his ideal position. He is positionally found out at times and defensively he lacks bite and consistency
He would be far better in a midfield four on the right, but I get that would mean a change in formation that Klopp would not likely be open too?

{Ed0666's Note - And let the backlash begin….


4.) 14 Apr 2022 06:56:52
We have one of the best defences in the League, Trent is part of that defence. He is a modern day full back playing for a team that are mainly extremely offensive. His assists are off the chart, how anyone can say he is better in a midfield four when he hasn't played a professional game for Liverpool in that spot is truly baffling. I mean how do you even know that? What we do know is what he brings as a full back tho. For me he stays there for a long time 👍.


5.) 14 Apr 2022 07:00:25
If people think Gomez is a better RB than Trent you have never watched a Liverpool game in your life.


6.) 14 Apr 2022 07:34:23
In fairness I wouldn’t mind seeing Vvd at Left wing and Mino at centre half.


7.) 14 Apr 2022 08:01:21
Trent could probably influence a game in any position he wants right now his best position for the club is at RB as proven over the last few years if he does move position like a Bale further forward or into midfield I'm sure he would be brilliant, he has decent pace a good engine a wand of a right foot and a good shot on him maybe something for the future but why change something that's not broken.


8.) 14 Apr 2022 09:15:09
How can you expect any RB to create 60-70% of our chances by encouraging him to be high up the pitch as much as he can with highline in the place and yet expect him to be perfect at the back? When one diagonal ball is enough to take him out of the game?

This is how Klopp wants him to play hence hendo is being told to fill that space when needed coz it's impossible for any human forget TAA to be at both place at the same time when one long ball is enough to take him out of the game when defending.


9.) 14 Apr 2022 09:42:12
Leave him where he is because he's clearly doing a great job. He's 1 assist off Mcmanaman's record (20). I don't think people realise just how incredible 20+ assists is from any position. I can only think of De Bruyne, Mcmanaman and Henry to do it for an English team in the Premier League Era. Whatever you think about his defending, he does not cost us anywhere near 20 goals a season so as far as i'm concerned he's still got a net positive influence on our results.


10.) 14 Apr 2022 10:25:27
People also have to consider how many times his passes start an attack from nothing. For example his pass to Diaz in the 1st leg against Benfica. Diaz gets the assist but Trent is the only right back in world football who plays that kind of penetrating pass on a weekly basis.

For all the talk of his defensive errors, statistically speaking he has made 2 errors leading to a goal in the last 3 seasons. For context, Alisson has made 5 and Van Dijk has also made 2 (and he missed a whole season so would possibly have more than Trent if he'd been fit) . It's very tiresome watching everything Trent does get cross examined.

He is so high up the pitch because Klopp tells him to be there. He gets caught trying to play offside occasionally because Klopp tells him to do so. It's the biggest myth in football that he's some major liability at the back for us and even if you do want to ignore facts and deal in sensationalist media influenced opinions, you still can't deny that his passing is worth about 20-30 goals a season to us at the other end of the pitch. Does it really matter that he's not Paulo Maldini?


11.) 14 Apr 2022 11:00:38
Has anyone seen the premier league pitch graph for I think it’s attacking passes in each zone. Trent is first in every zone on the right hand side and I believe is the first player to ever do it. From what I read the more forward zones are normally occupied by KDB but Trent is well ahead.

Anyway back to my point Trent is occupying every zone so if he was to move further forward I think that would restrict us as a team because he would then not be able to launch his attacking passes from deep as he will be further forward and it’s already proven as a Full Back he still gets into those forward zones and dominates them without the need to play further up the park in a position change.


12.) 14 Apr 2022 11:23:27
Stick TAA in a defensive minded team and he no one would question his defensive duties anymore than Reece-James. He only gets highlighted because of the way LFC are set up.


13.) 14 Apr 2022 11:37:27
Trent is playing in his best position. End of story really.

I am not a massive fan of the new system which brings him inside whilst the right no8 overlaps wide but based on our results and his stats, who am I to argue?

The other thing I have noticed about him this season is that he doesn't bother taking a touch anymore, nor does he carry the ball when given the opportunity. He just immediately chooses the attacking pass no matter where he receives it. Unprecedented stuff for any player, never mind a fullback.


14.) 14 Apr 2022 12:35:56
If it’s not broken don’t fix it!


15.) 14 Apr 2022 14:52:10
JK, I propose trying out Alisson at CF. We've seen he's good on corners with his head. 😉.


16.) 14 Apr 2022 15:20:22
Aray imagine Klopp pulled that rabbit out of the hat v Wolves to win the league with Allison getting the winner 🤣.


17.) 14 Apr 2022 15:38:11
If Alisson scores the goal to win the Premier League for us, I'd absolutely lose my head 🤣.

In loving memory of all that passed away in Munich on this day in 1958.
No colours in tragedy. ever.

{Ed0666's Note - absolutely echo your thoughts mate. Well done.

A excellent call MBR. A horrible horrible and tragic event YNWA.

Putting aside the result and poor Harvey's incident. A positive note which went unnoticed.
Fabinho scoring on his first game back since his father passed.
Just beautiful 🙏🏻.

Had a great game all round as well, much deserved.


2.) 13 Sep 2021 15:16:28
I thought Fab and Thiago were fantastic yesterday. Also special mention to Matip who has been rock solid now for 4 games and played a massive part in that first goal.


3.) 13 Sep 2021 15:17:14
Despite many fears during the summer (nauseating level of screams about "Wijnaldum's replacement"), I think we are still quite good in midfield, with a rotation of Fabinho, Henderson, Thiago and Elliott. Okay, the Elliott experiment gets postponed until his recovery, but that leaves Ox, Keita, and Jones to provide the offensive kick Elliott was providing. My hope is that one of these three will standout, especially against the teams that matter. Until Elliott returns.


4.) 13 Sep 2021 16:00:54
Agreed. Thought the midfield excellent yesterday. Gini was a ever ready type player for us and gave us some quality memories, but in my opinion we could cope without him with elliot coming through. Disaster for the lad, im really gutted. Time for keita or Jones to step up now. Hope the ox gets better in his new position. probably take time but hopefully he'll take the chance.


5.) 13 Sep 2021 17:58:14
It’s interesting that Elliott got in ahead of the club captain yesterday even though Hendo is fit - looks like he may be considered the long term replacement for JH so let’s hope he recovers fully and kicks on!


6.) 13 Sep 2021 18:18:00
Johnnyr1970. What you're describing is the quality of the manager that we have in Jurgen Klopp. He's able to leave the "all winning" captain and driving force, of the team, on the bench in favor of a youngster who provides the tactical and strategic imperatives Klopp wants on the field. Not to mention that it's clear in his head that the minutes of players like Hendo, Milner and Thiago will have to be managed all season long.


7.) 13 Sep 2021 18:40:35
Hendo isn’t fully fit yet. That’s why he didn’t start.


8.) 13 Sep 2021 19:31:00
Yesterday's performance (Elliott's injury aside) was brilliant. Leeds haven't won a game but they play with real intensity. So overall a great win. Not sure anyone noticed but Ox looked a little sluggish when he came on. Presumptuously like he didn't care. Any thoughts/ observations?


9.) 13 Sep 2021 20:30:18
Gandalf, he has a newborn in the family. Maybe he's not getting enough sleep. 😉.


10.) 13 Sep 2021 21:27:33
Ox looked a little bit like a trialist playing in a team that’s played together for years. He just looked lost and in the way. Hopefully he improves if given more opportunities there.


11.) 13 Sep 2021 22:50:23
Ox has barely played any football for the past year so not sure what people were expecting, really.


12.) 14 Sep 2021 10:19:41
Ox was available most of last season. The reason he didn’t play much was because Klopp didn’t select him. That tells the story.


13.) 14 Sep 2021 18:32:16
Oli I agree, he hasn't played much football in the last year and (joking aside) has had a little one which mist of us know is great fun. I just felt like he lacked motivation to work off the ball. My actual thoughts were that he was omaywd in a position he's not as comfortable with so he was lagging behind for that reason, thus curious on everyone else's observations.

Tommy Smith hated Emlyn Hughes because he took the captaincy from him and was a bit of a brown nose (apparently) . However when asked about his likeness for Hughes he said he hated the nan with a passion, but on the pitch I would’ve walked through a wall for him. No problem with that!

Here in the States we have Rebecca Lowe fronting the show, with Robbie Mustoe, Robbie Earle and Tim Howard. Have to say they are pretty good and an enjoyable watch. Even Tim Howard with his bias has improved!
