    Yes and I remember the old 12th at Christmas season, but this is a good deal different to be fair. This has been coming. It's almost the 2nd season in 3 too. The second crash in 3 seasons. No coincidence. The 2 are very different.

    BUT it would be great if it came to pass. Nothing is impossible

    Jirgen and his staff have made an almighty fuck up of the proposed evolution

    All it needed was players who could do what Hendo, Milner & Gini did brilliantly who could all play the switches, long diagonals and balls in behind to at least the level of accuracy & consistency of Hrndo in 19-20

    Jurgen hugely disrespected Hendo, Gini, Mane, Trent & Robbo and Thiago has been by far our worst midfield signing of his tenure - Not nearly as good asGini without the ball, has yet to deliver anything of note with it

    His fee and wages for what he's delivered atre quite frankly dire, he was Jurgen and Steveo's wet dream signing, but he has been a huge part of why we've lost so much of what made us so formidable

    Through his introduction we slowed our play down too much, overplayed far too much, lost our ability to be de astatingly direct and have gone backwards since he arrived

    Great player in a team suited to his abilities with players suited to them, absolutely garbage signing for Klopp's Liverpool

    Embarrassing mate. You ainít 5

    You are so comprehensively wrong there is little point even debating it.

    If we had tried to continue your way - we would have crashed like we did in 2021 - again last season and would have been even worse now.

    Klopp built that by team - you think he doesnít see the toll it takes on them? What you think you see what they can do more than he can?

    Even Jurgen - mr Heavy Metal football himself - saw we NEEDED to tweak it. Nobody can dominate playing the same way for any length of time.

    Also at some point - you are going to realise that human beings cannot run and run and run at that level indefinitely. They break and get injured and then fail to recover fully.

    Perhaps thatís why some players run away from It like Gini and Manť did.

    You continue to ignore the fact that Virgil has never been the same since he wa knob led. You ignore what we did last season. All of it as though it never happened.

    The reality is there for us to see. The fatigue - the boom - the bust.. the system that works for a time and then falls down. It isnít the way to get there and stay there unless you can keep buying and spending at a rate even City havenít for years. You would need 2 players for every position. 2x Virgil, 3x Matip (in case), 2x Trent (who is shot to bits bTw) 2 x Robbo (ditto) 2 x Fabinho 2x Hendo 2x Gini. 2 x Mane 2x Salah 2x Bobby..

    Itís not possible to play at that intensity season in - season out.

    You HAVE to up the technique. Be able to do some easier miles and win. The quality is need to do that. Only way.

    The only thing that broke this.. was a lack of funds. Never again did we go for players at the Alisson - Virgil - Fabinho level. Thatís because it all hung on Coutinhoís fee. Closest was Thiago at almost 30 and only when Gini wasnít gonna stay. Only senior buy for that bam
    Reed midfield since 20 sodding 18!

    I remember an interview with Bob Paisley talking about Shanks.
    Can't recall the year but I think it was during his tenure as manager and definitely after Shanks died.
    He thought Shanks retired too early because he was not so good at money and was worried about his pension.
    He thought he could have carried on.
    Bob had to ban him from the training ground because people were still calling him the boss but Bob had become the boss.
    He thought Shanks died from a broken heart.

    Yep - he stuck to his word on leaving but it seemed to have broken the man completely. Took away his fire,his will and he didnít live long after that.

    Tragedy for our greatest hero.

    He also went to Goodison to watch matches.
    Apparently he used to turn up for training and get changed with all the players and join in !!
    Any wonder Bob had to ban him!! He just wouldn't listen.

    Haha, I can imagine. I bet he was great craic.
    Whenever the question occasionally pops up of who you'd have at a dinner party of say ten people from history he's always one of the first people I think of. Him and John Lennon.
    I have a fab framed picture of him playing football with some kids on a field when he was at Huddersfield. In full Sunday best. I got it from the Huddersfield observer local newspaper.
