Massive tensions build on Liverpool ahead of Saturday – Football Weeks

Liverpool were Champions League winners in 2019. The red half of Merseyside then Premier League champions in 2020.

Now, in 2021, Liverpool are a club that have risked civil war with their fan base due to their shameful leading role in the attempt to distort and steal football, via the planned European Super League.

That the team fail / fade in such a significant way on the pitch this season was a main reason for Liverpool owners to try and create a new environment where they would never even have to qualify to play football again. European, is an unknown.

However, the evidence is very clear of a team (and a club?) From Liverpool that have peaked. With 97 points in 2018/19 and 99 points in 2019/20, as shown in the Premier League table below, even though Liverpool have won all of their remaining games as predicted by top Australian casino sites, they could rack up at best 71 points. Of all the domestic and European cup competitions, Liverpool can’t win anything this season.

As it stands, the scousers have a real fight to even qualify for the Europa League, let alone the Champions League, while the ridiculous new third European competition, the Europa Conference League, might seem like a possibility. realistic.

The plastic apologies from Liverpool owners haven’t come close enough to end fans’ discontent after their club’s shameful role in the European Super League scandal.

Liverpool fans demanding that the fan-funded flags that adorn the terraces of Anfield during this era without supporters, are now removed before Newcastle United visit.

On the pitch, the pressure has been mounting for some time. Eliminated from the League Cup in October 2020, the FA Cup in January 2021, followed by a lame two-round Champions League exit at Real Madrid earlier this month.

In the Premier League, it’s just six wins in their last eighteen PL games for Jurgen Klopp and his players, as they have lost six of their last seven home games in the league.

Surprisingly, however, Newcastle United are approaching this game relatively stress-free. Mike Ashley for once not considered the worst club owner in the Premier League, while Steve Bruce has really worn his luck in the last two games, two wins which now put Newcastle eight points behind.

No excuse for Bruce not to take a chance on Saturday and potentially go all the way to thirteenth place with a win. For Liverpool, no Champions League football next season would be a significant drop, having seen such success in 2018/19 and 2019/20, plus the full-scale return of fans, hopefully, from August in the Premier League. Liverpool, however, is still the top new favorite among online casinos for three points.

A real twist could also be on the cards, the two European competitions in the semi-finals. If Chelsea won this season’s Champions League and Arsenal won the Europa League but both finished outside the Premier League top four, the fourth-ranked club PL would NOT qualify for the Champions League, because the rules indicate a maximum of five clubs from the same country. maybe in the Champions League in a particular season.

While Liverpool need third place to secure CL football next season, if Leicester win at home against West Brom tonight it would put Brendan Rodgers and his side six points ahead of his former club, the Les two teams with only six games to play. to play.

All the pressure on Liverpool, but can Newcastle United take advantage of it on Saturday? No idea BUT it will be a shame if Steve Bruce refuses to allow his team to try to take the lead in this one.
