Big money on the table. Hopefully he stays.
Absolutely! I’m a big fan of Liverpool and Klopp. I love his attitude and the emotion he shows on the pitch and with this treatment of the players. I watched him for several years at Dortmund, so it’s great to see that he is still being who he is. And the side stories of seeing ex players playing against their old coach (Auba and Mkhitaryan) is always interesting to see. I wonder what goes on in everybody’s heads.
But I had to choose between Chelsea, Man CIty and Liverpool to win the league, Liverpool all the way. I mean I’m rooting for the Gunners as well, but I think they’re frail on the defensive end (as they have been for a while now). They’ll change my mind if they get a victory against on of those three or the Spurs and Man U, as our record against the top six has been so poor, I think something like 3 in the last 28. But perhaps a bigger goal threat from our forwards and actually scoring more goals, will be able to cover up some of those defensive holes. Klopp was right about wondering when Van Persie and Bergkamp were going to get on the field. Haha!
But it was great to see the back and forth and chances created by sending crosses in the box, against a team that’s had a pretty good defense lately for such things. Granted, Mane’s goal should have been good. It would have been interesting to see how Arsenal responded with an earlier goal against them. But, you play with what the refs give you. And Liverpool had many great chances that didn’t fall, with a couple from Arsenal later in the game,
Overall, I’m happy with a point!
And plenty of good CL matchups this week:
Juve V ManU
Ath Madrid V Dortmund
Napoli V PSG
Inter V Barca
Lyon V Hoffenheim
Good luck to your Spurs!
