  • The hash tag to the best will appear on screen over the next 90 minutes at a little brief flick up of the papers there.

  • Both of you were it that game yesterday, and that's the focus for the most potent split on the back pages between Liverpool and then looking ahead to that, that may interest the Darby, but you've gone early in your column, Mr Dunn, I read to you at the primarily title such formality question left vote whether it's gonna be presented in front of a crowd or not this all around Corona virus and the impact it could have on on Little which you would have expected to write a start this season?

  • No, certainly not a team win the title in March in the possibility of a team when it sounded much.

  • It'll probably be early April, um, on DDE.

  • When you look at it, you see in yourself you know how 27 wins out of 29 games, it's a It's a remarkable story, and that's why you know we're still leading on this story.

  • It's why it's still dominates is because it's a remarkable story for football team to win that amount of games.

  • That percentage of games 82 points When Cough said it in the press conference yesterday with past 18 point today, you thought, you know it's two points in March.

  • It sze just absolutely remarkable on.

  • That's why it remains such a fascinating story and on this idea that they are stumbling towards it.

  • It's just nonsense, you know, they would not game yesterday.

  • Okay, People are writing today saying it was a Navy win.

  • We know they deserved to win the game for with minds of great equalizer later on.

  • Little probably should have been further ahead by then.

  • And that's, I think, something there.

  • The description that was become about how how good this loophole team is on dhe, how good this one is being.

  • You know, I've seen an awful lot of loophole the season.

  • An awful lot.

  • Andi.

  • I can't remember seeing a game this.

  • I've seen games where maybe that grow late, winner.

  • Do you think?

  • Oh, well, that might be, You know, that's the rub of the green, but I haven't seen the game that they've worn and they haven't deserved to win, Not one game.

  • I cannot say this one game that I've seen him, and I said, Well, you know what?

  • They're fortunate.

  • Win that game.

  • They might've been forged it in the manner they've only but not in their overall performance.

  • And that is the same yesterday.

  • They continue to be the best team in games win games, and that's why you know we'll go down is a remarkable campaign, No fortunate.

  • So when the game deserved to win again, I think I'll take a slight issue it out.

  • I think they're phenomenally season and the victories tell that story, don't they?

  • I think that individually, some of the best football I've I've seen other than the great Barcelona side in last 20 years was played by Liverpool and it has played last season.

  • It's bastard and season pour against mansion sitting 2 to 1 too much city.

  • Those performance were extraordinary.

  • I don't think they've.

  • I didn't quite hit those heights.

  • Maybe they know being tested.

  • It tends to come in Champions League quarterfinals, semifinals and such, right?

  • So so I haven't seen them quite as good as that, but they've just beans.

  • So I think this season's more about character.

  • It's almost like the end of last season, which was also phenomenal, but they didn't win entitled.

  • They've doubled down in terms of like we're gonna do is it was reminding me of the team placed your heart, Andy the evident team.

  • I think I want a cup in 84 and there's this almost a sense of inevitability.

  • They were so good even though they hadn't done about that, that they're probably win the league next season and they know they haven't not wanted that season.

  • They just went straight through one of next season, and that's a certain mentality to live more.

  • Half.

  • We were looking at a defensive record earlier, and it's actually not quite as good as lost season.

  • So it's no in the individual areas of their obviously brilliant everywhere.

  • It's no in those individual areas, it's morning mentality that they just haven't let anything slip.

  • They've been really ruthless.

  • And is Sheffield United away?

  • Games that really should have probably been draws have turned into winds, which is how you end up with the extraordinary points table they have.

  • I'm not trying to stare it, but about that points about whether they deserved to win each one of those some West Van West Ham fans that might have another one about that.

  • But this this techno, he says.

  • The test of nerve from them.

  • Is it?

  • Is it nervous?

  • No, If I mean, if they're stumbling and staggering, I mean, I wish I could stumble in struggle like this on.

  • Actually, I keep coming back to this point that even if they lose two Athletico Madrid to get knocked out of the Champions League on Wednesday night, when they win the title, almost certainly in March, they will be world European and Premier League champions on.

  • I promise you in in two years time, nobody will look back at that achievement and say, or they had a bit of a stumble in, you know, in late February, early March, after they had their mini break.

  • I think the analysis of their slight dip in performances doesn't take any account of the law of human nature, which is that when you were that far clear in a title race, you are bound to slacken off.

  • Maybe 5% in 5% could be enough in the Premier League for you to make a defensive error.

  • What food or against born with as it did yesterday and for the other team to score.

  • They haven't kept a clean sheet in five Liverpool so that the performances on at the level they were at, but they are on their way to, ah, a monumental achievement in English football.

  • Andi, I agree with both these guys.

  • The ruthlessness is there.

  • The mentality is there on.

  • The talent is there and the numbers are Certainly though, you know we're looking at we're looking at one of the great English football, not one season two seasons because they will be champions of everything by the by the time this is over.

  • I think I think what what's that made people talk about this scenario?

  • Really, how good a team are there and is, would it be an anti climax?

  • They only win the primary goal.

  • Of course, it wouldn't be, you know, I mean, everything has been lifted.

  • Champions like last year, everything has been focused on winning that Premier League to the exclusion off almost everything else.

  • I'm sure that I'm sure they're still giving the champions the maximum attention, but simply to the cup competitions on Dhe.

  • So you've got this scenario because they're so far ahead.

  • You could have the scenario where if they don't get past that, let's go Madrid on Wednesday and then City lose next couple of games.

  • Little could win the league in sort of mid march on, have nothing else and left it then.

  • So So you've got two months of this season left, which is basically 11 basic, one lap of honor, 12 months, 18.

  • Does that matter on their legacy?

  • You know we will.

  • No, it doesn't match on the legacy and also where I would say so Well, almost being devil's advocate is the sense that when we talk about record points in the amount of winds, when you look back of teams have won the title, you don't say Well, they won the title, you might say quite the oldest team won it with 100 points.

  • That was a notable achievement.

  • But in general, you don't look back and say you don't differentiate between teams have won it with 79 points on teams have wanted with 99 points without champions.

  • When you knights of one the trouble e.

  • I think it was around 80 points, 79 points that win the league.

  • They were only one point clear off Arsenal.

  • We don't say that.

  • We don't say, you know, look, you know, that was a great season and primarily because they only wanted with X amount of points.

  • We say that was the greatest year in domestic from a domestic club, so that's I get why people might say on the outside Well, you know they not sacrifice the F A Cup, but he still didn't play strongest team the F A Cup at Stamford Bridge.

  • You know.

  • I mean, they gave a good go, but there wasn't strongest team.

  • Obviously, they were out of the car about Corp So it's That's the thing people look at it ba from.

  • That's from the outside.

  • They'll say, Well, your Caesars and going on board you've got to understand that we're in the Premier League was the be all and end all political.

  • It's what you're gonna talk with brought in for is what manages for the last three decades have been brought in for to win this Premier League and you do it because 30 years for a club of Liverpool's stature in the European statue is any pockets.

  • It's one of the great anomalies, really in the English game that it's taken.

  • It's been 30 years.

  • They've never won the Premier League.

  • The last time they won the title, it wasn't even the Premier League.

  • You know Andi, so this has been one of one of the great quest and they have come fairly close to it.

  • Brendan Rodgers came close to it, rougher.

  • Benitez comes close to it.

  • But this time you know they're gonna cross the line with the Rose between their teeth.

  • Really, it's an amazing, amazing performance.

  • I think says a generational thing, because if you're under the age of 30 all you've known his liberal side that yet come place occasionally on permanent champions.

  • For those of us who remember that sort of those great livable sides that will win league, and you felt like that would go on forever and to see them fall away.

  • And the relative decline of them is like this scale of this for I'm not awfully for young fantasy books.

  • Well, but for fans and for people live, Live, live, live.

  • See that?

  • And it's only a couple of years.

  • 18 months ago, we were talking about that day that Jamie Carrico was right.

  • It is telegraph columns that he possibly in his lifetime.

  • He wouldn't see wouldn't leak because City looked so dominant in Liverpool.

  • Looked a long way behind sort of two years ago.

  • Didn't you thought Well, maybe that so.

  • The fact that it's happened in fact was going to happen.

  • I wasn't convinced what?

  • Maybe who knows what I'm intending?

  • So I certainly you didn't see Liverpool.

  • You think this could have gone on for 35 years, 40 years or something?

  • and on the scale of the achievement is gonna be one of the huge stories in English football history.

  • How much faces they could still turn over.

  • Let's go on Wednesday and defend the European crap again that you wouldn't put that past.

  • You just say what a season that would be too many.

  • No, that 30.

  • But if the the point as Paul Mates there be Triple Crown winners won't leave if they do this and it's It's the scale of We are talking about one of the great teams and you put them up there because they've won the Champions League and now they're gonna win the league.

  • And that's great debate.

  • Atlantic City, isn't it?
