    Not one supporter has said "I don't want to win the Champions League"

    Many of us just see it as secondary to the title each season.

    Why wouldn't you want to win every competition you're in? It's the idea that the CL is some kind of barometer for success because a bunch of scrotes with "SZN" in there Twatter handles say so.

    I’m with you on that, pudge.

    I would love to win the CL, but if push comes to shove, I’d take the Premier League first.

    Obviously it would be better than a kick in the bollocks, and a cups a cup and all that.

    You have to win 3 champions leagues To count as a proper one of those wins came from finishing 2nd 3rd 4th in the league.

    The Champions League is the trifle that you could happily leave half of having already scoffed a starter of fois gras de League Cup and a Beef Wellington of the League and maybe thrown in a cheeky side order of FA Cup.

    A bauble you can lose several matches in whilst not even being champions and still win it.
    At least when the Scousers won it in the 70s they were Champions.

    I'd love to win it but only as the fairy at the top of the Christmas tree.

    I don’t know about your collective viewpoint but I can definitely tell you that no Liverpool fan I know thinks any trophy is unimportant. I know everyone of them wants to win the league title, European Cup, FA Cup, League Cup every single year. Our manager is less enthused for the cup comps but anyone with half an eye on the game can see that he doesn’t have a squad big enough to play the way he does on four fronts. Could FSG spend more? Probably. But at the end of the day, he’s had us in a European final every year he’s been here and now on the verge of the league. I love the FA & League Cups, been to Wembley & Cardiff for nearly all of them and I’m sure our next manager might do things differently, but for what we get served up in the league & CL, I’m more than happy for him to put his faith in the kids. And one or two or so have shown the manager they may be ready to start getting a proper squad number. Hard to complain really.

    They like them goalpost to hop all over the place.

    But you won't really have won the PL will you? If it restarts it restarts as a different competition, the rules will be different. So how do you gain any pride, fulfilment or satisfaction in winning it. I am sure your fellow fans do want to win everything of course they do as....... It means more. Does klopps attitude towards the cups not disrespect your fans then? Does it show him to be a poor manager that he can't manage his team/squad? FSG have spent plenty so I don't see that as an excuse.
