The Treble

Recommended Posts

It's actually dawned on me that if we want to, we can win the treble.

 

Whilst I appreciate the message Klopp is trying to send, we're about 12 Games from immortality in the cup competitions if we go all the way,and baring any further replays in the cup should we progress

 

I don't think we'll ever have a better chance of doing it, with the ability to all but rest players from the end of March given our league dominance. 

 

Someone needs to have a quiet word with Jurgen, give him a big hug, tell him he's absolutely right, to protest fixture congestion but he has the opportunity to go onto a bigher plane of existence.

 

Put out a decent side in the cup Jurgen and lets keep pushing on.

I don’t see why those who need games can’t play v Shrewsbury. Adrian, Matip, Lovren Clyne (?), Milner, Lallana, Keita, Shaqiri, Minamino, could all play if fit?

Assume they have all gone on “holiday” now? That confirmed? No one at Melwood?

Steve Nicol (i know he's not regarding as the brightest tool in the box) was on the radio the other week saying he'd rather see Liverpool go the League season unbeaten than win the treble, which I thought odd but he was arguing as an ex-player saying it was a greater achievement as it was something LFC had never done before

We've never won the treble either.

This topic is a bit pointless, there's no way Jurgen will play anything but the kids on Tuesday night. If they can get through against Shrewsbury then it's worth chatting about but not yet.

The Treble

100 points+

Season unbeaten

 

That’s the correct order of importance isn’t it?

Sneek a PL / CL double in between Treble and 100pts

He said 'i won the treble in 84'

 

he was told that wasn't 'the' treble and he kinda went 'Pah...'

Yes. I’d rather an old fashioned league and FA cup double to being unbeatables or whatever arsenal called it as well.

And yeah Nicol is talking s***e.

the only reason why it's 'the' treble is because the mancs did it and have tried to belittle our (2 trebles) with it.

 

they might have a point in 2001 because there was no league title but the treble we won in 84 was every bit (if not better) than the one they won in 99 because

 

1) it was our 3rd league title in a row (there's was their 1st of 3)

2) the league cup win was our 4th in a row (an incredible achievement, something no other English club side has ever done before or since in either FA or League Cup)

3) the league cup was taken seriously by all participants back then - we beat West Ham, Spurs, Man U & Everton in the finals - all cup winning sides of that time, whereas Utd beat a forever bottling Newcastle

4) we beat Roma in their own ground to win EC

 

 

 

anyway, in short, Nicol is wrong, IMO - but there were several fans agreeing with him

We exist to win trophies

What's the order of preference then (league is all won)?

 

IMO...

Treble > League + European Cup > As many points as we can tally / Unbeaten* >> League + FA Cup

 

*Can't split them - especially seeing as we'll get 90+ anyway - not like we're going unbeaten on 78 or something 

 

Basically, winning more trophies is always great - but if given the chance would rather set new records in League than win League + FA Cup.

We're decreasing our chances of winning the FA cup in return for a greater shot at winning the EC, a greater chance of going unbeaten and a greater chance of a record points total 

i'm fine with that

I don’t get the best chance ever, won’t get another chance etc. bulls*** we won’t.

 

I’d rather dominate the league and leave a serious marker, add the European cup again and then add the fa cup.

 

Granted league is done, but European cup looks a tough one this season as does fa cup and between European cup and fa cup, only one winner for me and isn’t the one sponsored by emirates.

I don’t get what you’re saying.

What moniker do you think they'll use for us if we do go unbeaten and score 100+ given Arsenal are the Invincables despite drawing 12 (I think)?

 

The Beasts? The Utopians? The Dreamteam?
