Random thinking, but I was just watching TFR and they were recapping the past weekend as we all watched the games and know what already happened. But I thought about Liverpool, and how well they played against Man City this past weekend. Klopp took this broken assortment of players who didn't even look like they could play a pickup game together, and turned them into a 90 minute giant beater.

Thats ******* scary.

And we joke about who he'll bring in from Dortmund, but what if he really does? What if he can turn this club around and qualify for CL next year? What if he can attract Reus or Batman and bring his philosophy to life in the BPL? And it doesn't even have to be them, just someone of that quality?

Brah, we're all ****** if Klopp gets his way.

Now granted, Man City isn't perfect. On paper they are, but they have flaws just like any other team, but Liverpool thoroughly whooped their *** Saturday. It was a beating so significant that it made people change from the Classico to watch a past prime Liverpool and Man City... A game that was supposed to be a wash.

If Liverpool can get a string of consistent wins, they could be right there in the top 4 by the end of the season.

A even if a healthy Sturridge is a short lived experience, having him when he is healthy is a good enough threat right now as the table stands. Chelsea are one more loss away from being where they were last week, so really its a matter of if Leicester City can hold on to their position in the top 4.

Right now it looks like Pool wants to bring Icardi from Inter, only strengthening their attack.




Now don't get me wrong, I'm not just signing next years trophy over to Liverpool, but I would like to see how the next few weeks go. And definitely how they stack up by next spring. I really think this may be a real turning point for their club. They might be atop of the league as early as next year if they make the right signings next summer.




We need a ******* defensive mid and a striker... Right now. And a 100 pack of bandaids.

Thats number 1 seat will be handed around a few times before its all over. I just don't want us to lose this number 4 spot.





Either that, or they just caught City on a bad day.

Why does this all seem like a foreign concept to you? You do realize that Liverpool is still one of the largest and richest clubs in the world right? You act like we aren't capable of bringing in top talent, yet we've seen the likes of Fernando Torres (when he was good), Luis Suarez, Xabi Alonso, and Javier Mascherano go through Liverpool. We should have won the league two years ago for Christ's sake. But to answer your question, yes. We're here, and we're here to stay.

Realistically if 'Pool get maybe 1-2 top players they have the class to challenge for the league.

Hypothetical. Sturridge + Benteke + Coutinho is scary. If all three some how stay healthy and are in form. If jordan henderson comes back and fits in. I honestly really like Jordan Ibe and Firmino if they can fit in. Add 1-2 class attacking threats....i don't see why they challenge for the title.

All of this is obviously a hypothetical. Its like saying if Aguero stays healthy a whole season City will easily win the title. Probably true....but never happens laugh.gif

Also wanted to ask, for those who play FIFA alot, do you think this years game is terrible?
Its not terrible, just waaaay too gimicky. Defense is too automated, you can put down your controller and your AI will track and shadow your opponent. Autotackles, auto interceptions, auto deflections and if you get through all that the GK will make some ungodly reaction save.

Lots of scripting too but that can be saved for another discussion. EA went away from the basics so anyone can pick up the sticks and feel like they are world class in defending.

Career mode at times is awful. You play teams like MK Dons, Real Betis, and so on and they all play the same and play possession tiki taka like they are Barcelona. The player stats don't even matter like finishing/defending/passing they will be heavily slided in favor of the opponent. Too unrealistic.

To end my rant, its not a terrible game, its a frusterating game. I want to play a sports game to have fun and score amazing goals and pick out genius passes instead of mentally trying to pick apart a defense.

And with all of those great players they brought in the past, they have yet to win a Premier League title and probably wont win one in the next decade

I've only played the demos of both, but FIFA this year is garbage, and PES is without a doubt the game to get. And I've never played or owned a PES game before this years demo.

Someone complained about CPU having crazy possession in FIFA, in PES they'll actually play like the other team. When you play Juve the knock long balls to their target strikers. In FIFA the cpu just plays the lamest most conservative passes, and really plays like a computer.

I'm waiting for it to go on sale then investing in PES, but I play the demo almost nightly laugh.gif (broke student FTL.)

This years FIFA is garbage, if it's on sale and you save a few bucks, it doesn't change the fact it's still a waste of time compared to PES.

My only issue with PES is the skill moves. Not sure if the game just sucks for it, they're difficult to do in general, or I'm just doing something wrong. But I don't use them at all which takes away from certain situations where I wanna put on some step overs or do a roulette.

I hear you and I'll take your word, I remember other people saying this to in here..


BUT YOOOO!!! Idk if I can make the switch laugh.gif

Going from Fifa where everything is so organized and going to PES which makes me feel like it's sort of fugazi and bousey. I mean don't they not have player names on there? Idk man, it'd take me out of the Fifa comfort zone. Everything would feel so different. FIFA has me hooked and I can't do **** :smh

WTF DO I DO PEOPLE? Lol

Btw, Liverpool are a couple of Germans away from being legit title contenders.

Chelsea has lost it, they'll rebound next year but they won't be a juggernaut.
United are still in this transitioning phase, the way LVG has them playing - I don't see them being juggernauts either.

City is the only team thats legitimate enough. Let's remember the EPL has fallen off in terms of talent. So I really don't see why Liverpool couldn't become contenders next year. Couple Germans, and their set laugh.gif

Because they city sucks really. A lot of players would rather play and live elsewhere in England. With Spurs playing well, they along with Chelsea and Arsenal are always going to be where players rather play in England. Alexis Sanchez turned down a much higher wages and his cut of the transfer to join Arsenal over Liverpool. City will always have the financial power to get player to join them, and United have history and money on their side. Liverpool have never won the BPL, don't have the same spending power as the rest and isn't an attractive destination.

City's new badge change will be announced soon, this is an e-mail from the club

 

Quote:
 

"As you know, the Club has been undertaking a consultation with all Cityzens members to establish whether the Club badge should evolve, and if so, how.

The consultation period has closed with thousands of Cityzens members having given their views via the online Cityzens' questionnaire and the dedicated consultation space at the Etihad Stadium. Hundreds of you also attended a series of free lectures on the history of the badge, provided by Football Historian Gary James.

Having analysed all responses received, we can confirm that there is an overwhelming desire amongst Cityzens for the badge to evolve and that a round design, as used in two of the Club's three previous crests, is by far the most popular shape and continued to be so throughout the consultation.

We have therefore been engaging with our designers to establish a badge which most authentically reflects both Manchester City Football Club and the city of Manchester and which takes into account the feedback that we have received during this consultation.

The new badge design, when completed, will be publicly revealed in the coming weeks, but only after you, as a Cityzen, have seen it first."

Enough with this haven't won the BPL garbage. Liverpool has 18 English titles; same league, different name. Also, we have just as much spending power as anyone else, where are you getting that nonsense from? Lastly, the city of Manchester sucks just as bad as Liverpool does, that's also a weak argument.

Man City have shown they will overpay for players and give them crazy wages to join them. Its been 25yrs since you won the title. Liverpool fans still living in the past.

Manchester is actually a great city. I think ppl are going off of the fact that historically liverpool/manc were known as boring industrial cities, but there was plenty to do in the city and some really good places to eat, word to the norther quarter.
