Sure, he improved them but that’s not purely down to tactics. It’s down to how he manages them, who they play next to, etc. Tactics are important, but player quality is far more important.

He shouldn’t be. He’s not all that much better, if better at all. Enter my mentions if you disagree, I’m always willing to educate you lot.

That has nothing to do with tactics mate. Klopp is a better overall manager than Dyche, hence why he’s at Liverpool and Dyche is at Burnley. Managers need to be: charismatic, tactically adept, good man management, etc. Tactics would be over simplifying your intended point.

That’s stating the obvious mate. They’ve replaced 10 bang average players with 10 world-class ones. Klopp came 8th with that squad, same manager, more or less the same tactics but far worse squad. They’ve been the best team in Europe since they acquired VVD/Allison.

Tactics are important. Player quality is more important though.

Neither matters. Player quality is the same. Both will employ similar tactics that suit the squad available. Allegri might squeeze out 6-8 more points over the season but it won’t be a significant improvement. Give Sean Dyche Liverpool’s squad and he battles for top 4 easily.

In sunday league, the team with the better players wins 9/10. Regardless of the tactics employed. Juventus under Allegri, when they were playing poorly they still won the Scudetto out of sheer quality. Benfica/Porto, Bayern, Etc. Those are 4/5 top leagues.

So player quality > tactics. Top quality players are needed far more than top quality “tactics”. You can play hoof ball and win the CL (Chelsea 2012). Because the quality of players (Drogba, Lampard, Terry) were world class.

Pep still a positional possession based manager. Klopp still a pragmatic, high intensity, gegen-press and counter-attack coordinated manager.

Why’d Pep/Klopp need to spend big? Their tactics haven’t changed, but they needed better players to get to the top level (Van Dijk, Sterling, Sane, Mané, Salah). I can go on.

Alonso dropped 7 games into the season. Azpilicueta, Rüdiger are reliable enough not to fuck up. Luiz is a whole other conversation. Sarri minimized the teams defensive deficiencies but that strained the attacking output. Now look at his Juve squad. Quality players > tactics.

Incorrect. He had the best or arguably, second best midfield in the league. Had the best player in the PL and the best CM in the PL to boot. He had a pair of experienced CB’s.

Incorrect. He cannot play in a pivot, at an elite level versus good midfields. He’s a lone #6 in a three man midfield and cannot play as the #6 in a pivot.

Top quality defenders keep clean sheets. Top quality attackers score goals. Personnel > Tactics.

He still would mate. He can’t play in a pivot at an elite level versus good/elite teams.

Jorginho would get tossed around like a slag from croyden in a pivot versus Ajax.

That’s a fair point. Though I’d rather focus on the PL this season anyways.

All depends on how we set up to press/not press.

Lampard’s inner Mourinho comes out versus Ajax. Compact block, funnel play into the middle with pressing triggers out wide, hit Pulisic/Tammy/Odoi/Mount in the channels. 2-1.

No Kanté = Pulisic does not start. That is the reality, and I fully understand why Lampard sees it that way now.
