    If that was Juventus's plan A they haven't thought it through very well. Klopp isn't going to leave Liverpool any time soon, although its fun to rile Liverpool supporters.

    And it looks like Conte is going to Inter.

    It's an interesting article, but frustratingly short on specifics. I can see why the analyses were useful in recruiting Keita and Salad, and the suggestion that Salad and Firminho were a good pairing. But the article seems to imply that the stats are affecting on field strategy. The only clue was the suggestion that Robertson's crosses from the left were less effective than those from the right (which might be encouraging for next weekend).

    P.S. Funny how they say Emirates Marketing Project has a business relationship with the NY Yankees without mentioning the name of the MLS team. This in an article about football. Or is it an article about Americans reinventing football.

    P.P.S. The description of Kroenke as wife of an heiress was amusing.

    I wonder if his time at Spurs overlaps with Comolli, who later went to Liverpool. The NYT says he advised Spurs from 2008 to 2012, which could mean he was a Comolli hire or it could mean he was hired after Comolli left in 2012. Either way, it shows Levy was still pursuing a more technical approach than the traditional manager even when Comolli left.

    On the other hand, Redknapp was manager from 2008 to 2012. Surely Graham wasn't a 'Arry hiring. Modelling football as a complex system doesn't really fit with run around a bit.

    The Sunday Times has an article on "Team Klopp". Strangely it doesn't mention Graham or focus on the role of Moneyball and American sporting genius like the NYT article.The names mentioned are Pep Lijnders (assistant coach), Peter Krawietz (chief analyst and long-term Klopp collaborator), Harrison Kingston and Mark Leyland (match analysts), Greg Mathieson and James French (opposition analysts), etc.

    Jurgen Klopp depends on brains trust

    Embarassing from this clam

    https://www.thesun.co.uk/sport/foot...spurs-carragher-angry-champions-league-final/

    LIVERPOOL legend Jamie Carragher has revealed he's "p***ed off" with Champions League final's scheduling - saying it benefits Tottenham.

    The Reds take on Spurs in the European showdown at Atletico Madrid's Wanda Metropolitano on June 1 - three weeks after the Premier League season ended

    And Carragher, a Champions League winner himself in 2005's Miracle of Istanbul, has criticised the lengthy delay.

    Carra claims the long break helps Tottenham, who have been decimated by a spate of injuries in recent months, including talisman Harry Kane.

    The England skipper, 25, has been out of action since the Champions League quarter-final with Emirates Marketing Project with yet another serious ankle injury.

    But now he is close to being deemed fit to return - with Carragher fuming.

    The Kop idol told The Anfield Wrap: It’s a weird one really. You normally go away and that’s what Liverpool have done - going to Marbella.

    SPURRED ON
    “No-one’s been able to give me a reason why the Champions League is three weeks after the league campaign.


    “It’s normally two weeks, where you have the FA Cup then the week after is the Champions League.

    “That’s p***ed me off a little bit that to be honest. I think it probably helps Spurs more than us, I would say.

    “I think they’ve got bigger injury problems than us, certainly with Harry Kane, Harry Winks, other little knocks they had towards the end of the season.

    "It gives you an extra week to be fit. I think we’re in much better form than Tottenham in 2019 and a longer break will not help that, really, in some ways.

    I posted it in the match thread yesterday. Carragher is an absolute moron. Still sulking after they bottled the league.

    He's right though - the break helps us more than them

    Yes, if you don't want a game where both teams can field their best team, you can say that.
    The 'momentum' bit is just utter horse manure! Apparently they will lose momentum by not playing during the (long) break, and somehow we will gain momentum by...... eh..... not playing.

    He's just a fudging village idiot, who is afraid because we, for once, will be able to field pretty much our best team, and he knows we're able to beat them. Utter bellend.

    He's afraid alright, losing to city and RM is one thing, even the Valencia defeat was kind of acceptable, but losing to Spurs, in a CL Final, there's just no excuse for that.
    If they lose this it will be a wake of epic proportions,and klopp would need to hope they hit the ground running next season.

    I truly can't believe, in this day and age, that someone would post something like this. I wouldn't even expect it of Spam or Cheatski fans.

    The thing I find most amazing is that he's posted about an event where Liverpool weren't the victims

    He's afraid that they are in spitting distance of #6 and will slip up.

    Definitely. He wouldn't have complained had it been the other way around though.

    The final date has been set for at least a year; it's only bad luck for Liverpool that their opponents would benefit more from that break than them. Just like Salad's countless dives not being spotted by referees was bad luck for their opponents.
