Lalas' point is pretty straight forward and I've heard him talk about it more. This generation has been spoon fed, given tons of money, the best training, etc. etc. Yet we have gotten worse? Basically our team is a bunch of pussy footed, tattooed millionaires. This team in my opinion has the least conviction I've ever seen in a US side.

Yeah I had to watch some shit stream while I was running every anti malware program in the world. NBC is selling this "GOLD" package to watch 150 matches that won't be on.... 50 bucks.... not happening. Hopefully most of the Reds game are on NBCSN or affiliates not on that compooter channel. Recap of the game. Liverpool had the ball the whole game sans 10 minutes. Bad defense by that giant numb skull Klavan costs us 1. Salah is good and scored a couple minutes later. Burnley than put everyone on defense and we couldn't score. Solanke came on as a sub late and hit the crossbar and should've scored. We had a lot of chances but only could manage a draw.

I love me some Salah.

And yeah, while it's annoying as fuck and I hate it- that seems like the best way to play against Liverpool as a smaller club. Just sit back, play defense and accept your draw.

Yup, that's how the smaller clubs play against all of the top 6-7 teams. If you can't break them down, you will get lots of draws. And I say that as someone whose team had 15 fucking draws last year because we couldn't break anyone down.

I haven't gotten to the point where I can hate people about rivalries yet. I understand that I am supposed to hate Man U and Everton fans. But I don't yet. I don't want to force it. I want their shittiness to shine through on its own. No doubt it will.

And yeah, those small clubs are guaranteed one counter attack goal against us since we don't even try defense. All they have to do is make sure we don't get 2-3 and they're good.

Man city is gonna win the league though so whatever.

I am the same way space man Trav but I've tried to relate Liverpool to MSU I guess, scUM and ManU (very similar acronyms...) Everton to Central Michigan or Indiana.

edit: and yes Man City look very effing good, my hope was de jesus and aguero wouldn't find their rhythm together... they did.

I try not to make those college comparisons because it's hard to ignore the "was really great in the 70s and 80s and still thinks they're great but settles for draws against Burnley at home now"

It's just not the same sport.

Weren't you making the comparisons to college in this or the not soccer thread just a couple of weeks ago? You don't try very hard.

But yeah, Liverpool shares the living off glories from decades ago thing with UM, not too mention the crazy ass coach that the media loves to suck off.

United are more like tOSU, even if it's been more like the Luke Fickell OSU the last few years. But still has the "brand ". Also United has an arrogant prick as coach.

I don't think I was. Maybe. But I don't think so. It might have been forced. 

Anyway.... I don't think klopp is like harbaugh at all. Klopp is actually likable. The decades ago thing is a fair comparison at this point. I hope they change it. 

mourinho though. I've never seen a more unlikeable piece of shit. Maybe a good soccer coach. But fuck, that guy sucks.

BTW, before you guys start handing City the trophy, look at them last season. Won their first 10 games in all comps. Pep was ruling the PL, the papers said. Didn't happen as the season went on. Maybe it will be different this year, maybe not. But so far, they're behind last season.

That's true. Miami is right. There is still hope that a team that gives up 179 goals can win.

You're right about City, watch Arsenal turn that shit show around or something more weird. League could be more wide open with the Big 6 all in European league too.... but hey ManU spends truck loads and rinho just complains and is smug while making excuses like Baugh.  I mean Liverpool did win the CL in 05..... I think ManU won it with SAF two years later... so big time international is similar.  Klopp is just a great guy, he's energetic, happy and gives good hugs lol.

When OTPT was asking about which team to support, you (or someone) compared several PL teams to B10 teams. Could have sworn it was you.

UM fans think Harbaugh is likeable, too. Just sayin'.

Oh. That might have been me. I think it was actually. But I was totally bullshitting just trying to get a non soccer fan to be a soccer fan. That's something we can all circle around. Bring in the idiots who don't appreciate the sport.
