I suppose we'll find out after the City match.
Yeah, City eviscerated that defence last year.
I like this Liverpool group, and it's well designed for Klopp's football. I think they'll be a very uncomfortable opponent for just about any top team in the CL, and I wouldn't be shocked if they were making an Early-Klopp-at-BVB-type deep cinderella run. They'll probably lose too many points in the league against non-top clubs to challenge hard, but I could see them doing some significant damage in the CL.
Yeah, and BarÃƒÂ§a can win La Liga against the current Madrid team. Is it likely? No. Same for you, especially losing points on games won like Watford's.
Tell me that when you guys finish fourth in May.
Probably. Though it's still early yet.
Though if anything over the last two years has been shown it's that Liverpool winning or not in the league is more down towards how they do against the Stoke, Palace and Watford's rather than City.
Dominic King is reliable.
Don't think anyone that signed the first two players would be finishing fourth.
Worse things I've seen, but with those two players now we talking about a true top squad. (minus goalie)
Ok then, I see.
I don't like 3-4-3 and I actually hoped he would've changed it right away in pre-season because forget about the wingbacks and whether or not they work, more importantly we don't have the CM's to make it work either.
Ramsey thinks he's #10 and leaves acres of space behind him and Xhaka doesn't have the legs for it and right now he can't not pass it to the other team.
As for AOC - Wenger can't make him excel there because he doesn't want to play there and IMO it's the main reason he could very well be wearing a different shirt next week. I actually think he's done pretty well there, but he clearly want to be in another position.
I'm impressed by LFC's proactive thinking with the Keita move if it comes to fruition.
I like that move for him a lot more than Juve or Inter.
It's not that he has no brain, it's just that he isn't a quick enough thinker in possession for a club like Bayern...sorta like Can...but he's not braindead in pressing by an stretch.
This happens all the time and players almost always just do their jobs and enjoy the time they have left with their comrades. It happened with lewandowski when he signed the secret agreement with Bayern a year before his contract expired and he was a full pro. It happened when BVB poached Reus from BMG over the winter, and he had one of the best ruckrunde's he's ever had before moving back to Dortmund. Max Kruse was signed by BMG just weeks before scoring a brace against them with his friends in Freiburg. There's tons of examples of this in football and it's almost never an issue.
or more succinctly, this:
1) Because Keita is one of Leipzig's best players; the club has a big season ahead of them as they debut in the CL on top of facing a stronger domestic challenge to retain a CL spot for next season; and his successor is 19 year old who just arrived from the Austrian league, he needs to be eased in so he can be ready to take over for Keita in the spring/over the summer
What can our Czech posters say about TomÃ¡š Koubek? He moved to Rennes.
Started getting caps for the national team last year. How does he compare to JiřÃ Pavlenka at Werder Bremen?
IDK. The EPL champions are rarely as dominant from match to match as Bayern are now. There's more room for error and dropping a match or two.
