      I don't think "disingenuous" means what you think it does.

      That said, it's optimistic, something a few more of our "supporters" could do with being.
      I find it dishonest that anyone would think that LFC is on track to make 95 points yet with the same pen write that they expect other teams on the same tangent will drop more points.

      I expect that everyone will drop points, that everyone will lose some games. Injuries will be a factor. So, dishonesty or a poster being disingenuous is not far off what the definition of the word is.

      Agreed, people need to stop f**king moaning and talking sh*t.

      Liverpool are in a great position.

      I totally agree Liverpool are actually in a fantastic place and we have got exciting times ahead of us.

      So under Jürgen after 8 games we are on a projected total of 95 points and we are yet to really hit form.
      City are not going to drop many points so this is around were we are going to have to get to if we want to win the league.
      Its going to be some ride this year.

      I think you need to re-read the post and then decide if calling someone a liar for something you got wrong is the way you want to go.

      Just a thought.

       :gt-happyup:

      I don't understand why some people seem to get so little joy from the game that they have to moan about every little thing.

      It's always a bit of a roller coaster ride supporting Liverpool, and there's nothing wrong with having a gripe when we play badly and lose, but with some it's like they suck all the joy out of it.
      Take the rough with the smooth, and enjoy the ride.

      His players are absolutely bang out of form but somehow we are top of the league with now a projected total of 97 points.

      So many variables here to take into account.

      We've played Chelsea (twice), Napoli, Spurs, PSG, City and Palace away (bogey ground) and we're barely 2 months into the Season. We are joint top of the League after a heavy and hectic schedule. I said at the start of the Season that i didn't think we had the squad depth to maintain an assault on every front this Season and it is starting to show already. We looked absolutely knackered against Napoli and City and our lack of options for resting the front three is there for all to see.

      Our midfield is yet to gel due to knocks, differences of adjustment and a lack of creative midfielders to balance the centre out. I do not wish to see Milner, Henderson and Wijnaldum in the same side, it is too much, they are too similar. If i was Klopp i'd let Shaqiri or Keita (i know they are not natural 10's) float in the '10' role just to try and mix it up a bit. With Milner out for a while, Lallana too unreliable and Oxlade out for the Season we either need to give Shaqiri a try or look to source that someone in January.

      With what we have got we are performing well and i don't think anyone can complain with what we have achieved so far. We are nowhere near 2nd gear yet and we are in the mix. Once we get that result that kicks us in the arse imagine what we will achieve then?

      We are nowhere near our level yet so to be where we are at this stage is incredible in my opinion.

      My only concern has been the absence of Fabinho but i was concerned at the absence of Robertson when he first arrived and look how that turned out.

      Be patient brothers and sisters, the time will soon be upon us.

      Keep the faith.


      Quality back up is the answer and solution to all the points you raise Chris.
      Jürgen addressed a mammoth task of getting our first eleven together without breaking the bank, to those less informed quality replacement is essential to compete adequately in the Prem.

      It is an insult to the man and the club not to provide the means to enable equal competition with our rivals.

      Here's the problem: We are riding on luck for quite some weeks now. We could have easily lost to City, Chelsea, drew against Spurs and Huddersfield. That'd be 8 points and we'd have 15 points and #8 on the table. In the CL we could have easily drawn against PSG, leaving us with 1 point and heavy pressure.

      Jürgen needs to be aware that this kind of luck won't hold long. Maybe we are playing already our best then it is what it is, but if not Jürgen has to check if there's some measures to unleash our true potential.

      That's the children way, just riding with the flow of what happens. Of course there's a reason why children are not taken for serious. If you look at City you won't find this kind of problem. They play much more independant of luck than we and in the long term that will matter. Now is the perfect time for Jürgen to identify problems like our boring midfield and do something about it than just sitting, waiting and hoping we get into next gear by fate.

      Last season City scored 3 goals past the 90th minute, 2 of which were winners in the 96th and 97th minute, the other was an equaliser. They also scored 3 winners between the 80th and 90th minute of the game. That’s 11 points gained at the end of the game. This is against the likes of Saints and Huddersfield, whilst scraping 1-0 wins against likes of Newcastle too.

      Maybe worth considering before you start saying City don’t rely on the luck.

      I talk about this season and they didn't have particular game luck as I remember. But ok, let's talk about last season. Even if they would have not gained their 11 "lucky points" they'd still had been champs. That's what I mean when I talk about 'not relying on luck'.

      Shifting gears: A lot of outlets report Asensio is on the market since he didn't hit it so far at Real. Would u consider him? He's not a playmaker, more of a pure forward, so I don't know.

      You’re a clown , you can try clever little snide digs but most see through them

      Are you a manc , a bitter ? One of those new found City fans who used to support Chelsea

      We have had our best Premiership start I believe , most points , most goals scored , least goals conceded all the whilst not all the players have hit their form yet - we are sat at top of the table and keep gaining points

      We could have taken all three points against both Chelsea and City

      The Boss looks well impressed with the lads so far this season and with 26 points after 10 games so he should. I am so looking forward to the Arsenal game because if they try to take us on it could be a mauling.
      His signings have been incredible and his man management has to be the best in football bearing in mind that Pep by enlarge buys his success.
      Who else other than Jürgen has signed or brought on players like Andy or Trent and now Shaqiri the man is a genius.

      The bench might play a big part V Arsenal. I think Klopp will bench Shaqiri and play a slightly more holding midfield. I'll be surprised if we see Shaq start. But he could come on and be the match winner. This lad has a trick or two and he can be the difference.

      Very big game, Klopp will be tested.

      Definitely a worthwhile new sig.

      Seems like we have changed tact this season with hardly any pressing anymore.

      Against good sides like Arsenal with our mediocre midfield it probably would have proved decisive but maybe Klopp is trying to keep the boys fresh for post Crimbo push.

      top of the league best start to a Premier  league season and the Vultures are circling questioning his tactics and team selections.
      Focus is on the midfield but the front three are not really that fluid at the moment not as good as last season.
      We were robbed yesterday by the linesman and the post its that kind of season so far .

      He said Arsenal had so many forwards on against us, he was waiting for Van Persie and Bergkamp. The press found it hilarious. And when you get on with the press, they will cut you some slack.

      Compare that to lectures and walkouts, over "respect".
