Not sure what that says about Premier League title holders Liverpool, who are now 4 points behind 'the weakest Man City in years' having played a game more. 

it says they're the weakest Liverpool incarnation for a few years

It's the same team that walked the league last season minus their best defender and now they can't score.

Missed all this last night. Sky sports headline this morning is klopp saying its all his fault. He loves to make everything about himself, just like mourinho did at Chelsea. Difference is, klopp tries to be all nicey nicey and friendly until it doesn't go his way then his passive aggressive side comes out and the mardiness kicks in. Mourinho was just arrogant from the start and pulled it off. Seems klopp got mardy at half time too? Good, can't stand him, he's up there in a 2 with wilder on my list of managers I can't stand and love to see stuff go against.

Do you not think though that trait is often there with winners ? I exclude wilder here, as I think he simply got lucky, and he was never going to sustain that level. But, Jose mardy but a winner, klopp, mardy but a winner, even Pep, mardy when lost but a winner. Even Ferguson hated losing and showed a mardy side.

I just think certain characters are that way-especially when winning on such a regular basis. They can't take losing.

Wilder is simply a mardy arse period.

Tbf Liverpool were outstanding for two seasons in a row and were incredibly unlucky not to win it in 2019 as well. With this season coming so soon after last and losing VVD was always gonna be tough to sustain.

They're playing crap though.

 

And have naff all sympathy re: Van Dijk.

 

Teams lose big players all the time. The very best find a way to cope with it. City haven't had a striker all season.

 

Liverpool let Lovren go in the summer and opted to not replace him. It left them short of senior cbs. No top side should be playing with two midfielders in a back four. That's just bad team management.

 

It's not over for them, but City and United are in the driving seat now.

As far as Liverpool go I also don't think Joe Gomez is or will ever be Premier League standard.The idea that not only VVD being out but also Gomez is contributing to their form is bizarre.

I don't actually mind em being mardy, it's just klopp winds me up even when he's not being mardy. His smiles always seem fake to means he's proper passive aggressive when he does interviews and things are going against him. 

 

I'm fully aware that he could be Mr perfect and my best mate but as he's led Liverpool to the title and some success I hate him. That's the root of it.

Can't decide on Klopp.

 

Part of me thinks he's probably a top bloke, but another imagines he could be an absolute tyrant if things aren't going his way.

 

Completely agree on the passive aggressive thing. He barely contains it in his pre and post match interviews, particularly when theh have a bad result.

I don't think United are serious challengers for the title, for me they showed that when they turned up at Anfield for a draw against a weakened side, I think title contenders would have gone there to beat them.

 

Liverpool will get sorted and it'll be them and City miles ahead of everyone by the end of the season IMO

I loved him at Dortmund, he seemed a lot more likable and gracious when things didn't go his way. Perhaps that was more to do with the fact that they were underdogs to Bayern and knew their best players could always go there, whereas where he is now, there's pressure to win every game and they're never underdogs going into a competition really.

I know what you mean. I found German people can be quite passive aggressive in general.

 

"Can I use the pan, Ellis"

"Yes, sure"

"Yes, so can I use the pan?"

"Uhm yes"

"I would like to use the pan"

"Ok Lara" *realises she wants me to wash the pan so she can use it*

Not sure how that can be given as a penalty but who cares. Liverpool won’t win the league and, Burnley aren’t going down.

Burnley still ought to go down.  Dire club.

Bit harsh. I find them dull and generally don't bother watching them if they are on TV but per percentage of population their town gives them a good following.
