Liverpool will not go down as one of the great all-time English clubs – Stan Collymore

Liverpool are a fine team and they will deservedly have the title wrapped up within two games.

But while I will celebrate my old club’s success, I will also lament that their domination isn’t just because Jurgen Klopp’s side have been so good but also because plenty of others around them have been bad.

There are issues in the Premier League that are starting to echo in the Bundesliga, La Liga and Ligue 1, where no more than a handful of teams have the money and there is a brain drain of the top talent towards them.

So Liverpool’s dominance is not a sign that we’re seeing the greatest sides ever, it’s about a limited number of clubs being able to fill out squads because they have the biggest budgets, something that puts other clubs in leagues at a competitive disadvantage.



Jurgen Klopp’s side have been relentless

Liverpool have been exceptional but will they go down as one of the great all-time English clubs? No, for the reasons above they will not.

That’s nothing to take away from what they have achieved this season, though, on the back of last season’s Champions League triumph.

In the context of this season alone, Liverpool have broken the back of everybody and they looked like an unstoppable force since Christmas.

For Reds fans it’s simple, though.

Deck your house in red and celebrate at home, or get in your car and honk your horn. From Huyton to Hong Kong, just enjoy it.



Liverpool have swept all before them

I love Barry Fry – he was brilliant for me at Southend – but I can’t say I’ve any sympathy with him and Peterborough owner Darragh MacAnthony after Posh missed out on the League One play-offs by 0.02 points.

If clubs further down the pyramid don’t get their houses in order then the lower leagues are going to be open to bizarre things happening.

Clubs in the bottom two tiers voted for an end to their seasons because they couldn’t afford to carry them on.

And well-run clubs such as Peterborough should have been using their influence in recent years to make sure in league meetings that all clubs were making hay while the sun shone.

Even if clubs looked one season ahead we wouldn’t be in this position, and Bazza and his chairman, as two of the more outspoken people in the league, must now be saying, ‘We need to rectify this so it doesn’t happen for anyone down the line when a silver bullet drops out of the sky’.

And if they don’t then everybody deserves what they get.
