Like it or not a modern team would destroy even the great Liverpool teams of the early 80's. It wouldn't even be close, but since the rules of contact have changed, half the old team would be sent off before hgalf time.

It's not that players are fatigued, it's that the standard is so very high, a 1% drop makes all the difference. I remember Neville being the most consistent RB for years and years, then suddenly he dropped off a cliff and retired.


I dunno about that. I have wondered about this for years and everytime I watch a classic match of the great Liverpool I am amazed at the pace, power, stamina and hunger those lads had for 90 minutes, week after week.

I am sorry but I reckon Souness, Hansen and co would give our current side a jolly good Rodgering.


I am not sure about that, when I watch those oldies, i feel it is a bit slow motion

The term "Rodgering" has nothing to do with the TVSN wanna-be. It could be associated with a spanking.
