Fortress Anfield! (Apart from when they lose)


Recommended Posts

Obviously this is going to jinx us and we'll now lose our next home game but... 

We now have the longest unbeaten home record in Europe stretching back 27 games. We've also only conceded 10 goals in that time. 

That's some turnaround since Klopp took over.

Nope, gotta take out any competitions to suit the stats.

So even though the game was at Fortress Anfield and Liverpool lost we are not counting that then because the word 'Cup' was used??? 

I mean just for accuracy how many games will they have gone undefeated at Anfield if you include the game they lost against us at Anfield???

Interesting stat time.... 

Since Liverpool last won a League Title Peter Schmeichel signed for United and went on to win it 5 times... he then retired and had a son who went on to win the Title with Leicester City... 

 

Yeah makes me wish football sold it's soul a decade earlier tbh.

An addition to that, Schmeichel Snr won his first league title at 29. Schmeichel Jnr won his first league title at the same age.

Both also won their league titles on 2nd May in their respective years.

As if we have Everton and Norwich fans talking about trophies in this threadxD

I actually thoroughly enjoy those WUMing attempts:

1.) Yeah no shit we're nowhere near as good as we used to be

2.) Despite not meeting the high standards set by previous decades... our history since the 90s is one that a lot of clubs would probably be envious of. "Haha, your club isn't as good as it used to be - yet still has a history in those "not good" years that most clubs would want to have happen to them

3.) Do those clubs even have trophy rooms??

4.) "LoL LiVeRpOoL fAnS, PoInTiNg OuT sTaTs bUt ThEy DoN't WiN sTuFf" - signaling that it's better to be a glory hunting dickhead

To be fair, and I know it wasn't you, but when one of your fans starts a new thread to give it large about some relatively pointless, if impressive, record and how good it makes your thus far trophiless manager, you've got to come into it expecting some anti-Liverpool banter in return.

At least the material is fresher than the ironic "Everton aren't they" I read in any thread that mentions my lot in a less than positive manner.

Yeah, the material is fresher than a mix tape from 1995. Which is also the last year Everton won something.

I don't remember the 2017 transfer window being in 1995? Besides, we've got the "First Club to unveil a new kit using their women's team" Vase from just a few months ago too.

And the Angry Birds trophy.

In any case, I think these stats go a long way of dispelling the myth that Klopp can't organise a defense/is too tactically naive. Granted, I imagine if we concede a soft goal despite our defensive record this season, these criticisms will probably come up (as we saw against Red Star) - but the statistical evidence is there that he improved pretty significantly on what his predecessor did. And his predecessor I think more fits the bill of a manager who can't organise a defense and is far too tactically naïve - but people fucking love him because of the Suarez year papering over the cracks.

I don't particularly rate Rodgers, and I certainly don't love him.

Talking more about how other Liverpool fans feel about him. He's a pretty divisive figure for us, some people really really really love him for that season where Sturridge was healthy and Suarez was by far and away the best player in the league - others see him as someone who squandered that year by failing to address defensive concerns that existed before he came in & (in my opinion) got worse in his first year with us... and then ultimately ran out of ideas when Suarez wasn't around to bail him out.

I think he was a bad manager who left us in a bad state, who just happened to have one good year with us (where if we'd had the same squad with a better manager, I think we would have all been much happier with how that year went). Whereas with Klopp I've seen us genuinely improve - you can see it in a lot of ways for us. These stats @LFCMadLad has posted, the general body language in the squad on the pitch, and... just by looking at the teamsheets. Look at Klopp's first LFC side & look at the squad today.

All this crap that he would be a one season wonder in the League and Internationals.

 

Mohamed Salah: Egypt forward scores last-minute winner against Tunisia

1 hour ago | African

_104376493_salah_getty3.jpg

Mohamed Salah has scored 10 goals in his past eight games for Egypt

Mohamed Salah scored a last-minute winner as Egypt beat Tunisia 3-2 in Africa Cup of Nations qualifying.

The Liverpool forward played a one-two with Salah Mohsen before clipping the ball over keeper Farouk Ben Mustapha for his 39th international goal.

He has now scored in each of his past eight international matches.

Naim Sliti scored twice for Tunisia, either side of goals from Trezeguet and Baher El Mohamady. Both sides have already qualified for Afcon 2019.

The tournament will be hosted in Cameroon from 15 June to 13 July, a change from the usual January/February schedule.
