Jim Boardman and Jay Reid are back to look over the latest from Anfield as we head towards that final straight of this crazy nine year ride with Jurgen Klopp.
It’s still too early to say if there’ll be any silverware in the boss’s arms as he takes us through the chequered flag one more time - or how many pieces of it - but we’re going to have the times of our lives finding out. It’s already starting to feel like every game will be a final.
The first game after Jurgen’s announcement was the visit of Norwich in the cup and, with it now being such a huge occasion, would it be a Kop’s Last Stand kind of visit from the Canaries? Not with this set of players, and this set of fans, the response said everything about this club under this boss.
Cynics might have argued it was no big deal for Liverpool to smash five past Norwich and that the real test would come in the next match against one of the few sides to take points off the Reds this campaign. The same cynics are probably saying it’s no big deal to smash four past Chelsea either. Let them underestimate us, if it makes them feel better.
As good as these wins were and as nice as it is to be top of the league, it means nothing until the end of the season - but it isn’t the Liverpool way to think that far ahead this early. It’s also part of the Liverpool way not to worry about what anyone else might be doing, just sort your own stuff out and if they slip up it’s a bonus.
So, as always, one game at a time, the next one being a trip to Arsenal, freshly knocked out of the cup by us at the same place, but they’ve had time to lick their wounds and maybe even work out that the watering of the pitch isn’t the key factor they thought.
At least PGMOL won’t give us the same ref that missed a pen so clear Howard Webb did a video about it. Will they?
On this week’s show:
- Has Liverpool 2.0 already upgraded itself to Liverpool 2.1?
- Liverpool 5 Norwich 2
- Liverpool 4 Chelsea 1
- Conor Bradley - real competition for Trent?
- Another gem - James McConnell
- Did we really bid that much for the player Chelsea beat us to in the summer?
- The deafening slam of the shutting of this transfer window
- Liverpool maybe quiet because of the kids coming through and the impending change of boss - what about everyone else?
- Is it a sign that football might be about to get a reset?
- Anfield not so quiet - early season worries about the atmosphere seem to be gone.
- Is it just the bigger stand or is there more to the increased noise?
- Look ahead to the trip to Arsenal
- Darwin Nunez - record breaking hitting of woodwork, narrative continues. Played for most of the game with a damaged foot, might miss Sunday
- Praise where it’s due for Paul Tierney. Not that certain fans of certain clubs agree.
- A thank you for some help on a car park
