Congratulations

Had some time to think about this now. Huge congratulations are deserved for your title win. To hit 100 points one season is incredible, to pretty much match that again with the added pressure of a title rival not giving you any breathing space is legendary. Pep has built something special here, unfortunately for us as any other era we would be comfortable league winners. We had a bit of tension after coachgate but by and large this has been a good rivalry between two teams playing positive football so no bitterness from me (except for heat of the moment shiite on the match threads). Congrats on the deserved league title.

Also a special mention to teams that are still fighting for trophies this year including Liverpool, Chelsea, Spurs, Arsenal and Watford. I think that's every important team covered.

Been a pleasure to watch both Liverpool and City this season and the way they've gone about their business. Two absolute quality sides and either would have been well worthy of the title.

Unfortunately it was City, but well deserved nonetheless.

Alisson 65 mill

Mind boggling really!

Specially when Klopp was associated with the idea that talent should be nurtured and that clubs shouldn't be spending silly money on players?

What a hypocritical thing to do! Do as I say?

Who cares about price tags, these clubs have more money than they know what to do with nowadays anyway. If a club wants a player, you pay that fee that brings them to the club.

That £140m spent on Van Djik and Alisson is a fantastic piece of business as far as I'm concerned. The difference they have made to this Liverpool team is huge. Gone from being sloppy at the back to absolute watertight within the space of a couple of years because of their quality.

Even still, players have been nurtured. TAA and Gomez who have come through under Klopp's leadership and even players who were already at the club who have been absolutely transformed by Klopp. Firmino, Henderson, Milner have been sensational since Klopp arrived and their games have developed immensely through his coaching style.

Ok yes, they've spent a lot of money, but they have that luxury. Were you really expecting Liverpool to not spend any money when Klopp said that? You'd be daft if you thought that would be true.

I think this squad of players can now lay claim to the greatest League Champions of all time.

To retain the title going into the last day, off the back of 14 straight wins is just mental.

Doubt it will ever be repeated.

agreed with this.. probably the best team this league has ever seen.

We have that perceived luxury through selling players and making the CL final.

to say that we sold Coutinho for £140m and got £70m through our champions league run.. managed to sell players like Solanke for £20m too.

Think we've done great.

With all due respect, you came in 2nd in the PL this season AND that is really all that matters.

You're right, we finished a point behind city, and 20 odd points ahead of everyone else. Makes us second place, just.

Done great to finish that close to city after finishing 20 odd points behind the season before.

I can understand how people will point to it only being second, fine with that. Still shows how much better than other teams we have been.
