Re: I think that puts to bed any thought of Liverpool being the best team ever

Liverpool are fully deserving Champions this season. Their front three are outstanding but i still think Man City are the better side overall even if though they’ve shown inconsistency this season. They are capable of destroying teams regularly.

Re: Brady

He is capable of playing a great ball but loses posession far too easily overall. Not convinced he’s quite good enough for the PL. He’s been out for a bit so worth seeing if he can get back to his best stuff with more game time.

If we can finish in the top 10 that would be an incredible achievement given our resources and the impact of Coronavirus. If we can get the best ever PL points total that would be the cherry on top. I think Europe is unlikely as Wolves and Sheff U also look very good at the moment.
