The 2-1 was worth it just to give Moyes some hope then rip it from him haha.
Hahahahaha. Just because ..... 'David Moyes is a Football GENIUS!'

To be fair, West Ham contributed to a superbly enjoyable game of football. The tactic of putting Antonio on Alisson made them a serious threat every corner. Mad how we never picked that up all game.

Just running out of superlatives now for this ridiculous gang of Reds. Even when we're off it for a good hour, we still find a way to win the game. Off the charts historically awesome what they're doing.

4 more wins. A title that could well be won in March. With TWO months of the season to go. Staggering madness.

This weeks admin-

All-time English top-flight consecutive win streak of 18 equalled.

All-time longest consecutive home win streak in English top-flight history equalled at 21 straight. Ironically, equalling the mark set by our 1972 vintage.

Current unbeaten home league run at fortress Anfield now extended to 54 games. (W44 D10 F141 A31. 32 Clean Sheets.).

Current unbeaten league run extended to 44 games. (W39 D5 F104 A29. 21 Clean Sheets.). Now the clear second-longest unbeaten run in English top-flight history.

110 points taken out of the last 114 available. As close to absolute, 38 game perfection as anyone will probably ever get!

And as we've not done a Messi-Mo watch for a while-
Salah's Reds record now stands at:
140 total games. 128 Goal Involvements. (90 Goals/ 38 Assists.).
98 PL games. 93 Goal Involvements. (69 Goals/ 24 Assists.).

Not too shabby for a one-season wonder selfish btard who won't pass to anyone huh?

Up the Champions Elect Reds!

All-time English top-flight consecutive win streak of 18 equalled. BTW, the SECOND time this year we've won 17 or more straight League games. That alone should be getting more press.

If anything all these quotes I keep reading that Salah aint the same or he is now rubbish and selfish and we should sell him if we get 100million highlights how much he has changed his game. The amount of space and panic he creates now for the other front two is immense as he is literally double marked every game. Its the sign of a great player to still be that consistent when having to change their natural game and operate in less space than before.

He gets some real physical abuse down to that as well. It always 'appears' that there's one standard of officiating for the other 21 players and one for Mo getting kicked and pulled all over. (Which all made the bunkum over him being a 'diver' even more ironic. Just what are you supposed to do? Stay on your feet when fouled and get nottin. Go down and be labelled a diver. Damned if you do. Damned if you don't. Oh the irony.). He really is a tough, strong SOB which was brought home in glorious technicolour when he whipped his shirt off against Utd to show a Ronaldo-esq ripped physique.

Not often I agree with Carragher but he was bang on with his assertion about how madly under-appreciated Salah is.

Bonafide World-Class superstar.

Uncanny how when we beat Munich last year, in one of the best away displays in our history we’ve ever had in Europe, they were ‘washed up and finished.’ Now they wallop Chelsea, they’re boss again and a serious threat to win the tournament.

Funny how that works huh? *Eye roll.

Too early to say and talk about this. But who do you see as Klopp replacement in the future? Is there someone good coming in from U team managers? For example, we see Carlos Corberán from U23 manager as the Bielsa mantel. He has already turned down manager position from Spain. He plays and breads youngsters to similar ethic like Bielsa is doing for the first team.

WAY to early to even thinking about that. (I wouldn’t be at all surprised if he extended again past 2024.).

But for the sake of ***** and giggles, my money would be on L’pool going back to the arl boot room philosophy of promoting from within with his assistant Pep Lijnders being a seemingly seamless transition.

@Scouseinthehouse

It's more about having both parts of Mueller-Lewandowski duo. Probably the best attacking partnership I've seen in football. They have quite unorthodox style of opening up defenses, they don't dribble, they're not fast, it's all about movement. It's hard enough dealing with one player who moves in unpredictable ways so you can't anticipate his runs. But when there's two of them, it creates so much chaos you almost can't mark those two out of the game.

You can replace Mueller with more traditional behind-the-striker talent like James and Lewandowski becomes easy to isolate, as was the case in both of your games.

Munich are a top side, and big threat every year, regardless of who plays mate. Especially at home where their European record is top-notch.

It was pathetically stupid the number of bitter imbeciles all over social media that tried to lesson L'pool's superb win there last year. Who are now strangely silent after they licked Chelsea.

One of our greatest ever away European victories. And man have we had more than a few over the years.

Yeah to say Bayern are not a top side would be silly, tor the past 10 years they always make it to the final or they go out against the winner. If it wasn't for terrible luck with injuries they'd definitely have more cups. And now it happens again, Lewandowski may be out for 2 months if rumors are true.

Lovren is what happened
They have all been **** tonight! Could be a one off tbh. Even though TAA has had some poor games this season defensively. Teams looked leggy to me for a little time now. And don’t think Klopps rotation has been great or your depth is that good. Still a great team though.
