10 points behind City already, I have some beachfront property in Stoke to sell to anyone who thinks City will drop 10 points between now and the end of the season. 

We're 7 behind you thick fuck.

Drinking in last chance saloon now I’m afraid! Highly unlikely we’ll retain our title now dropping 7 pts behind city at the half way point. If we go into city game no worse off than now and win then we’re still in with a shout but that will require probably 4 wins on the the trot which we haven’t done all season. It’s over isn’t it?..............

The title shouldn’t even be a consideration, it’s gone and the hope is that City hold off their Red neighbours and we sneak into fourth ahead of Everton, Tottenham, West Ham, Chelsea and Villa, tough as that will be. Inserting us into the race for the league title requires the sort of delusional, ridiculous thinking that we mock Evertonians for.

The sheer number of teams around us is going to make it very, very hard. I suspect that we’ll need to put a 10 game winning run together almost immediately to be likely candidates for fourth, something that is improbable at best given FSG’s abject failure to invest at the most crucial time. Forget the Manchester clubs, we can essentially consider Leicester out of sight in third if they win tomorrow and we fall at Spurs.

Bollocks If we win ten on the bounce we’ll be in the running for the title!

It's just ridiculous. It's not that City are that great, it's because WBA are so shit. Yet this atrocious team got a draw at Anfield and could have even won. Mind boggling.

It is part of what makes our recent form/results all the more bewildering/frustrating.

 

We have somehow managed to fail to beat (or even look like beating) a WBA side who have let in about 25 goals since.

 

Failed to beat a Newcastle team who have lost all 5 since holding us.

 

Lost to an injury ravaged Southampton team who look likely to tonight lose their 2nd game in  league on bounce since beating us.

 

Lost to an abysmal Burnley.

 

Add in failure to beat Fulham or Brighton and it really paints a picture of our decline this season that is not just a 'blip' or a downturn in form, but is actually the stuff of a real crisis.

 

Even with problems we have, these results should simply not be happening - an odd one or two like them OK, it happens, happens to lots of top sides, but these results especially when looking at what else the sides who we have got them against have done recently, and the sheer number of them is so far below what is acceptable and what even with our current problems we should be managing it is almost laughable.

I've already factored in our defeat to Spurs on Wednesday and City winning their game in hand you dimwit.

I know you have you thats why I call you a thick fuck. There is a stink of I told you so all over this place, delighted to behind so they can get on  with their favorite hobby of bashing the owners. Supporting the club and wanting them to win is a distant second to being right.

Okay, so when you called me a thick fuck, what you meant was you disagreed with the scenario I posited that will occur imminently. 

 

I support the club, not the parasite custodians. I'll still be supporting Liverpool long after these shysters have crawled back to wherever they came from. Unless you work for FSG I'm not really sure why you're being so hostile.

There's as much solidarity and support for the fight on this site as there was with the Nottingham NUM in the 80s. Sad twats the lot of them.

They could drop 25 and we wouldn't finish above them.

No not really, there's going to be all kinds unexpected results this season, obviously City will have to falter which they will at some stage plus us getting a few wins on the bounce which could well happen  so it'll be a quite a few games yet before I concede. 

I think we'll be OK at Spurs now that some improvement has been made as such. 

Imagine doing the Pools every week in this season there's virtually no fixture you could say was a banker.

I happily bashed the owners when we were winning everything. I can separate the owners from supporting the team. You appear unable to.

Arsenal have as much chance of catching City as we do.

Looking at those offsides City are getting lately and Utd pretty much only having refs whose family members have got Old Trafford season tickets then it's nailed on the PL have decided it's a Manc dogfight for the title

Your probably right, i was being silly, hang on though what if? Nah Klopp said about playing for 4th spot, which was rather gloomy, so I'll go with whatever he says, you can only hope for a favourable outcome.

I called you a thick fuck because you were first in line nothing personal. I'm sick of reading all this defeatist shit, the players deserve more than that, the manager deserves more than that. Its embarrassing, you can want a defender signed, hate the owners and support the team at the same time. Its fucking miserable right now but the gloating by our own fans is unbearable.

I totally agree with you re: deserved respect. I’ll be the first to admit that we may not retain the title, but when we consider the run of key injuries - regardless of how the owners have reacted - and with a lot of season left in front of us, it’s hard not to imagine that we will be riding the top three right to the end. After witnessing our narrow loss to Utd - and it was a narrow loss - and to see some of our incisive play back on display, I say, particularly if we beat Spurs, the confidence boost together with returns of some players over the coming weeks, will restore belief and lost points. 90% of what the manager and owners have put in place is still in place.

Two tough games coming up but if we win them, it's going to put the shits up the teams in front of us.

 

United will wallop Sheffield tomorrow but could drop points at Arsenal. City have us and Spurs in the coming weeks.

 

If we can be a few points off top with a lot of tough games done even factoring maybe beating City, I think it's a good place to be. So many teams with something real to play for means all teams will drop points. If we were to take 28 points from 30, we are not going to be far off top with a lovely looking final few games.

 

City have generally always been great against the likes of West Brom. Let's see how they do against us and Spurs. 

 

They are not City of two years ago especially without De Bruyne. Having said that, they are a very good team. The Mancs are doing a good version of us in 2013/2014 without a Luis Suarez but balanced off with a much better defence and squad than we had. I'd love to see them cope with the kind of adversity we had this season and they have an almighty hard run in with plenty of places they could drop points.

Morale at rock bottom. Yet, don't forget we're exactly half way into the season. You'll are scribbling on here like we've five/ six games to go. Theoretically, anything could happen with 19 games left, anybody can with this shit. Like someone above said, the next two/three games are crucial. If only we could gain some momentum soon, we'll be up there before we know it. Come on you Reds!

    • You must mean big league because there aren't many bigger clubs around than his current team 
    • His stats for stealing a fucking living are absolutely sky-high.
    • the more i watch of thiago is he looks a slightly less mobile version of gini. i know everyone says thiago's passing is great, but i am convinced that's just because he plays no look passes, i don't see any benefit over what gini contributes. maybe i am wrong, but i reckon we got thiago as gini's replacement, but we were able to fund it early by selling brewster and using lallana's wages and if barca had bid enough for gini, we'd have snatched their hands off. thank fuck they didn't. no way he's here next year though sadly. let's hope we get someone to add value using gini's wages - fuck knows where the fee will come from. 
    • I think you're right but I wish you weren't.    I don't  get why the club paid what it did for Thiago along with his wages yet not sort out a deal for Gini when there's very little age difference and he's already on the books.   He's a cracking player Gini, fit,  reliable and hard working. It doesn't make sense to me that he hasn't been offered a deal.   Because of his importance to the team, as far as I'm concerned,  it's a no brainer.
    • I've said I think if VVD stayed fit, this wouldn't be the problem it is.    As for this complete drop off, it has coincided with playing Henderson in defence and his place going to thiago - if I recall correctly Henderson's 1st game at centre back was Southampton, which was thiago's 1st start and this was our 1st defeat of the run we've had this year. That was the point our midfield stopped, except for the brief support it got from milner, when we actually picked up some points. So we dipped off when we 1st lost VVD, but the collapse went once we doubled down on destroying the midfield to support the defence. However, that didn't need to happen. We could have gone out and found someone and got it all signed and sealed like we did with VVD 3 years previous and he was ready to go. Once they waited till Gomez got injured, then everyone in the market place would fuck us. But it didn't take a genius to see he'd get injured, it's what he does.   It's massively bad planning. Going into the season the risk with vvd was there to see. We should have had plans in place in case this happened. We didn't need to act on it, but it's basic common sense if you're taking a gamble is you protect your position if it goes wrong. It shouldn't have taken both Gomez and Matip to get injured to see a reaction.    As for you comment about a rebuild - well we clearly need one soon as it's an aging squad. Assuming the players come back from injury at the level they were at before, I say carragher is right and we need 3 right through the spine. 2 of them should just be replacements for origi and Gini. The only one net new should be at centre back - and while unlikely, perhaps he's already at the club.
