CL Final - Myths

Seen countless comments from Spurs fans saying Liverpool acting like we’ve won already and our fans think it’s in the bag etc

I have lived my whole life in Liverpool and through family, friends, work and social media, local press etc I haven’t seen a comment or action giving off that idea.

Yes we’ve won more games and finished higher in the league but EVERY LIVERPOOL FAN, knows how good Spurs can be

Most of our fans are like me and I’m sure your lot are the same - 1% beyond excited with anticipation for the biggest game in Spurs history and perhaps the biggest in ours, the other 99% of thoughts is fatigue, hot and cold shivers, irritable bowels, insomnia to name just a few symptoms

I think after the Arsenal-Chelsea match in midweek it will really hit home how close we are to playing

Hope it’s a great game and both teams play well and fair

The atmosphere here in Liverpool is palpable

PSG are European also rans.

Liverpool came back against Barca. They are not even close
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Barca had to score 6 goals, in a knock out stage of the CL. Never been done before and since. So yes, that was the biggest and best come backs of all times.

Still weren't playing v Messi..
Plus got 2 penalties and an own goal.

PSG are just crap as proven by Solskjaer turning them over.

LFC 4-0 Barca is the best performance to come back in the CL ever. To keep Barcelona to 0.

People that know football understand this.

comebacks are irrelevant.

this is a final.

For me this gap between games will hurt us more than spurs and i think this is now really 50/50
----------------------------------------------------------------------

This is what Carragher is saying. That the gap breaks up Liverpool’s momentum, and allows out of form Spurs to regroup, rest and get injured players back.

Interestingly Klopp has taken ‘Pool players for a rest and warm weather training, whereas Poch has maintained the same U.K. based training regime we stick to during the regular season. Liverpool looked a bit dodgy after their last mid-season break, Dubai was it? Am hoping Poch’s method is the more sensible!😬

Allows Firmino and Salah massive recovery time as well as VVD who has pretty much played every game.

One could argue Spurs were on a massive high after that last minute goal too.

I don't think the training for the three week break has any bearing on the result, both have plusses and minuses.

Liverpool don't do this sort of thing on a whim though, there's a science behind it, with some proper eggheads involved.

Well they did come back from 35 degrees Dubai and ended up playing Leicester at home in the snow and ice. If you recall the pitch was full of snow and ice despite our beat attempts to remove it from the kop end when attacking Leicester.

A massive emotional high. Physically we were at the bare bones and have been for a while. Pretty sure Liverpool would rather have played the CL final a few days after those semi’s, you dispatched Wolves with ease - whereas I’d say we welcome the 3 week break given the second half of the season we’ve had.

Much as I like Klopp you could argue that was a big misjudgement. What good is warm weather training when your next competitive matches are gonna be played in cold wet snowy wintery England? Those subsequent draws to Leicester and West Ham cost you the title.

It’s not about the next game but conditioning till the end of the season.

As I said it’s not done on a whim there are specialists that have the data for this kind of thing.

LFC have, and I kid you not, theoretical physicists, maths doctorates, Astro physicists and even a CERN scientist to crunch numbers and make data driven decisions.

I don’t think we would have avoided muscle injuries as we have had with Klopps playing style were it not for these breaks.

I recall seeing posters commenting to say that Klopps style will result in fatigue and soft tissue injuries.

Found a way to counter that it seems.
