Epic realism mate is 2 games in hand, 13 points clear. But whatever sinks your particular boat!

I've been here before, we start getting cocky, draw a game or two, and the next thing you know we're adding another year to the wait for a title!

 

But if singing 'we're gonna win the league' makes you happy, fill your boots!

HAHAHAHAHAHA! 

 

Ancelotti: "The players are really sad for this moment. I said to them I lost the Champions League final after winning 3-0, these things happen."

 

There's Don Carlo's red Christmas tree moment, right there. His card is marked.

You two will still be looking for ways to gift it to City long after the rest of us have recovered from the crushing celebratory hangovers.

At least one of you will be ready to give it to them as soon as we even draw a game.

What a life, weighed down by your own endless negativity.

You call it negativity, I call it not counting chickens before they hatch! Nothing is won until one team can't be caught mathematically!

We've been here before? When did we have 16 games to play, 2 games in hand, a 13 point lead, a great manager and backroom staff, a great team that can manage games and has only dropped 2 points in 22 league games and blown the league?  When have we 'been there before'? Not to mention a city side who havent strung more than 3 consecutive wins together in the league this season.

 

I fully expect us to draw a couple of games but I wont be the one losing my head about it when we do.

It's negativity.  Plain and simple.  And you're in the extreme minority now.

Will you even celebrate when we win it or will you self flagellate for a month ?

Title challenges! The points difference is new, the situation isn't. A title challenge is a title challenge. We did screw it up last season, although we ended with the wonderful silver lining in Madrid, and I'm not going to assume that we've won anything this season until it's over!

We didn't screw anything up last season, we lost out by a point to a magnificent record breaking worthy team of champions.

More negativity.

What does it matter what I do IF we win it? This assumption that it's all over with 16 games left is ridiculous! We're 13 points ahead, games in hand or not, not 43 points ahead!

We were 7-10 points clear, we drew 4 winnable games after losing to City, and if we'd won any one of those 4 it would have been enough to take us to the title! City were magnificent, their run in was amazing, but we did fuck it up!

I don't see many declaring it to be over, the majority seem to have accepted that it's beyond reality that we could fuck this up now, and even if we did then City are in no fit state to capitalise.

Arse were as impressive as the chavs were woeful. Fat Frank has got work to do and they are far from nailed on to get into the top 4.

Shame about City's late winner but it is of no consequence. We are in complete control of our own destiny and it feels fucking great.

We lost one game all season and we fucked up ?

Give your head an almighty fucking wobble lad.

They don't look it I agree but they had a difficult game tonight (as did we when we played there) and they came through (again as did we)! That could be a confidence boost to them, especially if we falter at Molineux!

We lost one game all season and we didn't win the title, we were ahead by 7 points after losing to City and we didn't win the title! Slice it whatever way you like, it's a fuck up in my eyes! If City or United did the same we'd be saying they fucked it up!

What the fuck good does a confidence boost do them ?

Does it get them an extra point and a half per win ?  Because that's what they're going to need.

And that's only if we majorly crash, which seems to be almost a nailed on certainty in your mind.

And you're 100% certain we won't crash? Good for you, what we're you thinking after City away last season?

I'd be saying what I am now, the better side won it

The glass is half full for me, it's half empty for you and the half that is there is Pep's stale, bitter yellow piss.

Pissing myself at Everton, that's a cock up of massive proportions and I bet the cunts were readying themselves to post all kinds of shit about qualifying for Europe. 

Chelsea were wank considering they were against 10 men Arsenal and a goal to the good from the resulting penalty. Arsenal dug in and scored two goals from their only 2 efforts on target. They face City soon so hopefully Arteta improves them more by the time they meet. 

City themselves huffed and puffed against a stubborn Sheffield United who were resilient at the back but should have ventured forward more often, as when they did City didn't look that good, even with the return of Laporte. They got 3 points though and you could see the relief on their faces and in their actions. I don't think they are handling the pressure of trying to close a huge gap, especially because we keep winning, I'm certain that they'll drop more points.

I was thinking it was going to be close.  I was right.

This year won't be anywhere near as close as we just don't have the same level of competition.

And if you seriously believe we could burn this Premiership run then you've no faith in Klopp or the players.

Whatever floats your boat though.

I was on the side of not wanting to get excited too early, too many close calls and heartbreaks in the past, last year was close, but I didn't really enjoy the season, spent most of it shitting myself and anxious. 

 

But now it's time, this is our year, and I'm going to enjoy the journey almost as much as the destination.

    • Despite the halt to the Premier League season, transfer rumours never stop and the latest snippet of news regards another left-back being linked to the Reds.

      Football 365 (via Spanish publication Sport) reports that PSG star Layvin Kurzawa is on the radar of Liverpool as they search for specialised cover for Andy Robertson.

      The evergreen James Milner has deputised many times in the role during the tenure of Jürgen Klopp, but in doing so, it takes away some of the strengths he offers in the middle of the pitch.

      Youngsters Yasser Larouci and Adam Lewis have made appearances in domestic cup and pre-season games, but they are both viewed as options for the long term.

      Kurzawa was strongly linked to Arsenal during the January transfer but he stayed put at the French champions with manager Thomas Tuchel very keen to keep hold of him.  

      The 27 year-old has a deal of experience in a domestic sense having also played for Monaco, in European competition for PSG and also on the international stage where he has won 13 caps for France. 

      He also brings a winning pedigree to the table having been part of three title-winning squads with PSG as well as a number of domestic cups.

      With his contract ending in the summer, Liverpool will be able to sign Kurzawa on a free transfer.

      In terms of his strengths, Kurzawa looks to have a nice blend between attacking and a defensive sense.

      In possession, he tries to drive forward with the ball, a trait highlighted by his 1.47 progressive runs up the pitch per 90 minutes this season.

      He likes the ball at his feet with Kurzawa where he has averaged 2.8 dribbles per 90 minutes with a success rate of 56%, and has a pass success rate of 87% during 2019/20.

      Despite being comfortable in possession, Kurzawa is not a playmaking full-back in the way that Robbo and Trent are, although to be honest, not many are in the modern Football landscape.

      An area where Kurzawa could struggle in a Jürgen Klopp side is his defensive positioning and concentration.

      This is along with a lack of confidence in his own ability which many close observers believe is a key reason that he has been in and out of the PSG side this season. 

      That last part makes him sound like a Alberto Moreno clone, but in truth we are not looking for a world beater in this position, just a player that can give Andy Robbo a breather every now and then.

      With that all said, being able to sign Kurzawa could be a pretty savvy move.

    • That article just sounds like 'shit we need to write sonething'. Teams will know this isn't a proper training camp and just a necessity to get the season complete, the TV companies off their back and get the players paid again.    Brighton 'intense schedule' fuck off its 9 games over 4 to 6 weeks. You could wrap it up in 3/4 weeks if you had to and it would be no more intense than our schedule over Dec-Jan the last few years. We played 12 games in 37 days this year, yet Brighton are moaning at playing 9 in between 28 and 42 days     Think Brighton might be more on the let's void the season being 2pts outside the relegation zone
    • Coronavirus: Premier League plan to restart season branded unworkable as clubs eye solution   Plans to put players under lockdown for a month to get the season finished have been branded unworkable – because clubs are too picky. The hotel quarantine plan is one idea mooted for Friday's next round of talks between the Premier League, EFL, Football Association and the Professional Footballers’ Association.     In a bid to conclude the season, one proposal is to squeeze remaining games into a condensed time frame in June, behind-closed-doors, with players kept in isolation to protect them from the risk of contracting coronavirus. Stadiums, hotels and training facilities would undergo a “deep clean”, with the players under strict quarantine, to enable the season to be completed by mid-July.   But Christian Machowski, whose company ESEM specialises in travel management for top clubs across Europe, believes the plan is unrealistic, because of the particular demands of the elite teams when it comes to hotels and training facilities.   “There are so many factors that come into play," said Machowski. “When clubs are looking to book hotels, one of the chief issues is what is an acceptable time to drive to a stadium? "Teams don't want to be stuck on a bus for 45 minutes to an hour, travelling to a game. “Everybody wants the best for their team, but there's only a small number of elite hotels that are suitable. “For example, there are two or three hotels in London where all the teams tend to stay when they play there. “To find a venue where 20 teams can find facilities up to the required standard is just not workable."   “In terms of training facilities, teams would also want to be as a close as possible, so that would present problems. “Then you would have to quarantine the same hotel staff for three or four weeks. “And if one team picked up an infection, whether it's a player or member of staff, that's the end of the tournament.   “It's not about teams staying in luxury, it's complicated because the infrastructure is so finely tuned for clubs in terms of what they need.”   Brighton have voiced their opposition to the proposal for a single-city Premier League finale. Officials at the club have major reservations due to concerns over hotel accommodation, the number of pitches required and the intense fixture schedule.   Chief executive Paul Barber also has concerns about even discussing a return to football while the coronavirus casualty rate around the country soars. “As creative as we want to be, people are losing their lives,” said Barber. “This is a serious, serious situation. We're totally driven towards completing the season but, at the moment, it is tough to talk about it.”   Machowski, whose company has handled almost 500 European games and training camps for top clubs over the past 24 years, reckons the number of teams involved also makes the plan impossible to pull off.   “You could maybe get away with it in the Champions League, for example, with a mini-tournament, because you're dealing with fewer teams,” said Machowski.   “But here you're talking about 20 teams and there's so much at stake. It's not like a pre-season tournament where there's a trophy at the end. “This is about titles, about relegation, qualification for the Champions League and Europa League, so no-one should be able to complain that they missed out because maybe the hotel, training facilities, travel or food wasn't right. “So it's not really workable, for so many different reasons.”   https://www.mirror.co.uk/sport/football/transfer-news/coronavirus-premier-league-plan-restart-21789901
