Recorded November 29th, after Liverpool’s 1-1 draw at Brighton. Earlier in the week, we had a very rare home defeat against Atalanta. Upcoming we have Ajax and Wolves (the latter coming after an almost luxurious 5 days between games). Sean and Paul are joined this week by Daz and Haitham to discuss the performances and what we can read into them. Of course we talk about some of the other headline grabbing stuff – how Jurgen Klopp’s comments seem to have been misread, and the limited consideration given to the sports science behind the injuries affecting all of the teams who have been playing twice a week since the Champions League restarted – especially from ex-players who played the game in a different era. And of course VAR officiating gets an another unfortunate mention. We also talk about the value of shoe throwing. The injury situation seems to get worse by the game – at this point more players are going down than are returning. A result against Ajax would at least allow Klopp to field a weaker team against Mjitlland the following week, although it will be limited by injuries and the players who were named to the Champions League squad (e.g. Nat Phillips isn’t named in that squad).
