    i think some of this may be a mix of wishful thinking and reading the tea leafs of the past in order to predict the future and because city are off the pace for a change…..they have some big injuries and pool are flying, i dont see a crisis or signs of the end, i think pep will be here next year and will bolster the squad, just MHO

    I think Pep wants to win the Champions League with City. I think that is this seasons priority. Liverpool & City probably are the two best teams in Europe and seeing Liverpool win it last season will have irked him. Winning domestic leagues is no longer a challenge to Pep which is why I don’t see him going to PSG or Juve. If he does move in from City I’m not sure where he will go. Either way I don’t see Poch going to either if the Manchester clubs.

    Cm, vvd and Alison have certainly helped us but you can see the way the defence has been coached. We play as a unit. We play offside very well especially from set plays.

    I think we are a bit more open this season but we defended very well on sat until we gave them one chance for the goal

    I remember the amount of goals we were conceding from corners. Now I look at the opposition having a corner as a chance for us to attack. We are just ready to break.i think last time we conceded from a corner was burnley at home went it just went straight in.that was early March if my memory’s serves me right

    This is the best Liverpool team I’ve witnessed. We won’t get a better chance then this season to win the league and it’s the first time ever were I think we have a huge chance but no way will I write city off. 30 games to go and we just need to stir clear of injuries for our really key players

    Used by dates for managers does appear to be the norm except for one and, not sure but maybe another.

    Sir Alex left when he wanted to. If he wanted he had the job for life. I was thinking that was the same for Wenger but I think eventually his stay wore thin and he probably received a little whisper that it was time.

    My hope, that Frank Lampard is successful and stays for an eternity. I’d hate to see him sacked. That would be unpalatable.

    If he doesn’t win the CL and even the Prem, his time will be up.

    Think 5 years ahead too, there’s a possibility neither city or liverpool will dominate.

    If we can get a couple of titles in and level up with Man United that will suit me ⚽️🕹🙂

    For me, I think Klopp is the best manager in the world right now. I’m biased of course but I will say that it’s his time at City that has truly convinced me of Peps quality. He didn’t just inherit a brilliant team and coast, he brought them up multiple levels. His 101 point side is the best every PL team, I’ve no doubt in my mind about that.

    To compare the managers statistically, it would seem pretty one-sided, as Pep has won a lot more than Klopp but for me, Klopp takes the more difficult projects and he even won the Bundesliga 2 times (against Pep’s Bayern). I just think it’s a lot harder to take a team that wasn’t really in contention and to them win a title, or make the CL final etc etc. I definitely wouldn’t want to get into a heated debate with anyone about it though because I still think it’s pretty close. These clearly are the best 2. They have both created ridiculously good teams and to say that one is better than the other is not to take anything away from the other.

    Our opinions may have a few seasons left to change our minds also. I guess a lot of it might come down to whether Klopp can win the PL in his time at Liverpool…. ,As for Pep going to Utd. I’d break down and cry.

    I agree with most of that mak. I always said I can see Klopp doing what Pep has accomplished at City, but I cannot see Pep ever doing what Klopp has done at Liverpool. He would not have the resources and financial backing to do so.

    Mak, not to detract from your argument but neither of Klopps Bundesliga titles were won while Pep was at Bayern. In fact Pep won the title in all 3 of his seasons there. I cant split them myself but lean slightly towards Klopp.

    Pep and Klopp are only the best Managers in the world until they are both replaced by Frank.😊

    Pep and Klopp, although successful managers have a different pedigree.

    Pep has been successful at Barca, Bayern and City, however all three of these teams had won their domestic leagues at least twice in the five seasons preceding him taking over.

    Klopp, may not have quite the trophy collection of Pep, but with Dortmund and Liverpool he has taken over teams without a league title in a decade or more.

    Make of that what you like, but to me it would seem if you want a successful team to keep being successful Pep’s your man, if you need to build a team then it’s Klopp…..Pagan
