Hello good people and here we go again… Another week, another nail in Liverpool’s coffin.
It’s getting serious now, the Anfield meltdown, and I’m not gonna keep on about it, as it’s plain to see, something – more than a few missing players – is going terribly wrong.
The only reason I’m mentioning it again is that you just can’t ignore the latest excuses.
It’s laughable, what’s happened to “Kloppy Ze Clown”?
Following Saturday’s defeat to Everton, the German said: “You just cannot play football in this heavy wind, I am convinced now that God is a Man City fan and that he will do everything to stop us. You can’t win against God.”
OK, obviously he doesn’t mean it – I hope?
But what a thing to say! I mean how much further into the book of excuses can he go? “We were told an asteroid was going to hit Anfield so the players were a bit nervous”?
God or no god, “you can’t play football in heavy wind”… Huh?
Of course it’s more difficult, but, one, Everton were playing in the same wind and playing really well. And, two, perhaps Burnley might be at a disadvantage in heavy wind because they put a lot of balls in the air.
But as we all know, Liverpool play it neat on the carpet.
His “fatigue” defence also falls flat on its face, as this was the Toffees’ fourth game in 10 days!
Incredibly, this was the first time in just under a century, 98 years, that Liverpool have lost four in a row at home and a first Merseyside derby defeat at Anfield in 20 years!
What a day for Carlo Ancelotti and the lads. It was good to see that he and his team understood the significance of the result… Living in the shadows for so long, it felt like the result was as good as a trophy!
Whatever is going on, I still can’t understand the section of Liverpool fans who are calling for Klopp’s head. Seriously? Be interested to hear what you guys are saying.
FFS, last year’s culmination of the German’s four-year project put Liverpool – in my opinion – as the best side in the world. Untouchable, be it in England or Europe.
Is the modern fan so frikkin fickle that they’d turn on the very same man who brought glory and respect back to the club? Drop me a mail ([email protected]).
That result inevitably perked me up after an incredibly frustrating 1-1 draw between Southampton and Chelsea.
The Blues were so dominant, but, as with Liverpool, blunt at the top end.
It really was a chance missed to heap the pressure on Manchester United and Leicester and firmly assert themselves as a Top-4 favourite, especially with points being dropped all around them.
It’s been a great run since Frank Lampard was axed, but six games in and I’m still not seeing a positive change up front.
As for Callum Hudson-Odoi being pulled off after coming on as a sub? Man that must HURT!
He’s probably been Chelsea’s best player since Thomas Tuchel took over, but it was a ruthless decision. Especially as Hakim Ziyech came on and did f***-all.
The coach said he did what he did because CHO’s “body language wasn’t right” and that “it’ll be forgotten on Monday”.
Maybe for him, but not the young winger. Was it a message to the rest of the squad?
No one is safe and if they don’t pull their weight and listen to instructions they’ll be dropped? Either way, Chelsea have a crazy set of fixtures ahead of them… Atletico Madrid, United, Liverpool, Everton, Leeds, Atletico! Talk about a testing period!
And while we’re on about testing periods, what is wrong with Jose Mourinho? Every time I watch Spurs they’re useless in the first half and then excellent in the second. Can’t he see that?
It’s back to the Champions League tonight and tomorrow and then… another big one…Chelsea v United at Stamford Bridge on Sunday. Anyone up for a bet?
Stay safe people, do the right thing, mask up, keep your distance and wash dem handies.
Chat next week…
