That's not hard.
It's the whole perfectionist obsession that Pep has, he loses it when he can't control what's happening on the pitch.
Klopp & his sides revel in creating (albeit built on a very organised platform) chaos in the opponents half.
That's why he hates playing us so much.
It's why his players lose the plot, cos he tells them constantly to have control, he literally micromanages them & critiques them when they come off the pitch about every thing they did wrong, no matter how well they did.
So they're on the pitch & every time it's not going to plan or they make a mistake, no matter how trivial, they feel like they've failed him, whether subconsciously or consciously, due to that continual reinforcement that everything needs to be perfect.
The reverse is true of Klopp & our players, which means they all seem just as focused, but not about every single moment that may go wrong, so they may lose a lot of their individual battles, but they're not stressing about it continually & that pressure is just to try to win at all costs, not to be perfect.
I said before this season having seen clips of the way pep treats his players that it's clear to me why he doesn't stay long at a side, I couldn't see a way that even the most professional players could put up with that level of intensity & pressure that he piles upon them for year upon year.
Hasn't Raheem waffled about being man enough before, wee man syndrome. He should really let his people handle this sort of thing or at least run the statement by them first.
I love that they have two weeks to reflect on being in 4th place. Absolute dreamboat.
Talksport saying Joemez pleaded with Southgate to not drop Sterling, saying it's all done and they're over it.
This will make even more great reading at the fume!!!
I think Raheem needs to run that sort of thing past someone who has more than a rudimentary grasp of grammar, spelling and punctuation.
Otherwise he could come across as a bit fucking thick
Looool we got in Guardiolas head rent free and now Sterling's for the same treatment.
It's quite fucking roomy inside Sterling's head
Two grand a month in zone two
I've not seen the 'old'/'young' divide as it is with them ...
Is it just me.. but I feel uneasy liking this post...
Wonder what other pundits have said about this?
Rio has said it should have been handled internally, cos people will not need an excuse to jump on sterling and over a throat grab.
Gomez out to training with England and has a scratch on his right eye so looks like it's more than a throat grab.
Most posters on the fume are lauding Pep for his self control and ability not to fly off the handle on Sunday.
And then say they wish he'd really give everyone a piece of his mind and tell the truth about the officiating, VAR, and the conspiracy to hand us the title.
It's rather lovely.
Like we do with Mo?
Too late for that. That cat was out years ago and it refuses to be put back in !
And fights like one too..
