We talk a lot of Liverpool FC but also a lot of general football. Can a season still be successful if you don’t win anything? Is football less draining if your team feels like it’s having fun? For a football crowd, which emotion is more important: love or hate, and just how good was Anfield in the good old days?

Plus there’s Klopp’s positivity and Jose’s negativity, the powerlessness of cash, what’s real and what’s fake when it comes to football tournaments, and the Hoffenheim threat.
