    Just thought that there's not enough discussion about Liverpool on this forum.

    Tbf I've not been following football quite as much this season, so don't really know what Liverpool fans think the reason they're not doing as well is

    Apparently they had a couple of injuries, but they don't like to talk about it . . . :whistle

    Behave, even if we go perfect until the end of the season (like that's going to happen with this schedule) we'd still only be on 82 points, do we really think that City won't get at least 2 points in the next 3 games?

    We should throw the 2nd string vs leicester and go full strength against you lot.

    Everything :(

    Its just been one of those seasons, dreadful injuries right through the season, so many players losing their form, no luck when needed (yes, every team needs a bit of luck), etc

    Its just been forgetable non stop.

    Shit play, shit tactics, individual bad form, and what appears to be little to no belief. It's been f**king weird since the new year, the strangest time I can recall as a Liverpool fan and I've been watching us since the 70s.

    We've had a few injuries to key players too, particularly at the back. But I don't believe that's been as significant as the reasons above, although they have played a part in them.

    I'm not sold on Tuchel tbh, reckon he'll be gone by New Year. Not the greatest track record at other clubs, can't help but feel this is a new manager bounce more than anything

    If Everton can win 3 from their last 4, I think that'll be enough to finish in the top 7. They have Villa, Sheffield Utd, Wolves & Man City.

    8th it is then!

    How this season has gone, they'll lose the first 3 and beat Man City.

    One big factor is if he decides to revert to the 4-3-3 he's tended to use throughout his career or stay with the wing-back set up.

    That's not to say it wouldn't work but these players look happier and better with 3 at the back.

    My belief too, although I confess he's doing better than I thought he would at this stage. I still believe he has a reputation that outweighs his achievements, but this could be the job that makes him and where he finally starts to win things. If he wins the CL then that's a great start to that but despite the recent league result I have them as underdogs.

    Next season is key, in terms of the league he needs to take Chelsea and do more than simply finish top 4.

    Not a bad one so far but yes we have seen managers do well at first but things can change quickly next season with a slow start in the league.

    Tuchel’s reputation at PSG shouldn’t be seen as controversial anymore given what’s occurred the past week.

    The PSG players acting like petulant wankers and deliberately trying to injury City players when things weren’t going their way. Leonardo going against Tuchel’s request and signing Icardi for 50 million when PSG desperately needed wingbacks. Icardi was a ghost both legs.

    Left Mainz because of limited transfer funds and Dortmund for them continuing to sell their best players. Was there more to that?

    he fell out with the higher ups in both of his last 2 jobs, he didn't leave Dortmund he was sacked, same as at PSG, Mainz was the only one he left
