      Didnt see much of todays game so wont comment but to be joint top unbeaten after 8 games of which 3 were city Chelsea  and spurs well think only the stubbornest of people would argue with that.

      Key now is not to drop silly points against the teams we should be burying

      My desire is not for Liverpool to drop points. I am being a realist. And if you'd like to join the rest of us in reality that would be great.

      I think a lot of Liverpool fans would see four points out of six in two games against our closest title rivals as an excellent return.

      Can we win both? Absolutely. Would drawing one and winning one be a good return? Yes. 



      Sigh.

      I agree, we have 3 very winnable games now to pick up points and also get that attacking mojo back to improve the goal difference. It also gives a bit more time to integrate Keita, Fabinho and Shaquiri in less high pressure games.

      Only a thirteen goal difference and two points which given the respective form of City and ourselves, may as well be twenty points and a trillion goals. We need to find some form and fast before City are over the hill just on goal difference alone.

      Top of the League.

      Absolutely - well in the mix and still are not playing as well as we can.
      Hendo, Naby, AOC unavailable yesterday, Lallana not back on form just yet - that's a possible starting XI midfield right there we're getting by without.
      And up front Bob and Mo imho have a ways to go to match last seasons form.

      And YET, we are in the top3, with flip all in it.
      Yes Citeh look strong, and Chavs, but they could have a blip and we could hit our stride.

      Our defence is as good as it's been in 3 decades imho, that's what has us where we are now - cause the front lads and the boys in the middle haven't gone thro all their gears yet - but I'm confident we'll get stronger as the season goes on.

      Doesn't seem like that long ago we were looking at striking options from Lambert, Borini and Balotelli. We have come a sh*t LONG way. We just keep putting the minnows to the sword like we have been, when our form picks up, think we can knock over some of the bigger guns we've been drawing with.

      We don't quite have the squad depth of City, so need to watch injuries when pushing in the CL and FA cup, along with PL. Would expect to see more of the squad lads in the FA cup though.

      Jürgen has done brilliant, might be good to bring in someone in Jan window if we're still not firing, though he doesn't tend to often do that - still, VVD was a pretty decent signing.

      We have a side capable of winning the league imho - and the CL - though we need to hit better form soon, and maybe have a bit of better luck with injuries.

      We cant compete with City when so far it looks like teams are capitulating before a ball is even kicked.
      We just need a little bit more aggression in the team and for a few more goals to go in keep the pressure on city.
      We also have Chelsea,Arsenal and Spurs to come to Anfield so we could have had 4 more point if the fixtures had been reversed

      Teams may well be capitulating before a ball has even been kicked against City but City still need to stick the ball in the back of the net and they've done that thirteen times more than we have this season. Warnock threw the towel in against us in his press conference but we struggled for a long period of that game. Huddersfield hardly faced us brimming with confidence for a win but we struggled against them as well. In fact there's only been two teams we haven't struggled against this season. There comes a point when excuses need to stop and a closer inspection of why our front three are misfiring is made, because until Klopp figures that out, we're going to continue struggling to score goals - and just to put how much we are struggling into perspective, we've scored one more goal this season than Bournemouth and only two more than United and its a testament to just how good our defence is now that we're not down there battling it out with them.

      We're the finished product, but the problem is so are other teams in the league. Referee decisions will decide who is champion this year, when it's this close it's going to go down to who gets the best 50/50 decisions.

      Well why not Actually take a minute to appreciate the defensive qualities we are now showing after 10 years shipping goals like there's no tomorrow. We played plenty of pretty stuff last year and the year before, free flowing football, swatting teams aside with Champaigne footy. That's great but then 3 games later we blow a game due to our soft underbelly. We now have an actual sprine to the team, we defend as a team, we're solid at set pieces, there is a collective pride in defending and it barely gets a mention in here. Everybody is too busy whinging 'where's the champagne football we've been so used to (that has won us fook all I may add). The goals will come (we've seen some return to previous form in our 2 games prior to Arsenal) but if we're ever going to win this thing we had to tighten up and develop a resilient side and finally we've got one. It has been massively underplayed and under-appreciated. Until this season I was only truely comfortable as an LFC fan when we were 4 (yes 4!) goals to the good.

      To me, City are by some distance the best team in the league. Does that mean we can't win the league? No, but we're going to need City to go off the boil a bit to stand a chance regardless of how well we end up playing in the coming months.

      Not sure how accurate this is but our squad value has increased massively over the last year but still over £150m less than citeh:

      I did, I made a point to say that without our defence we'd be midtable, fighting it out with Bournemouth, United and Everton, because that's where our goals for tally stands right now. But having a great defence is worthless if we don't sort out the problems with our attack. Despite a some big wins, it simply isn't operating as it should, with a lot of stagnancy in midfield and poor decision making up front. It's not unreasonable to examine why this might be. Allow me to point one other thing out to you. City have a better defensive record than we do, not just a better offensive record. This is how we operated this time last year. Big wins, clean sheets. So again like I said, it's not unreasonable to examine why this isn't happening this season, and work out how we can recover that form.

      Doesn't matter with the goal difference whether it is + 1 better than us or + 30 better than us. It's only going to take a single slip up from them (possibly against scum).

      Yep, it's funny isn't it. I'd have taken every one of our results so far if someone said we will start the league at match 11 and you will have played city, arsenal, Tottenham and Chelsea.

      You'll be unbeaten and have 27 points.

      People are mad, I think they're forgetting that we finished last season a bazillion points behind city and by this time last year we were pretty much already only playing for top 4.

      We are doing great and City will slip up against someone too, we just need to keep within a few points and be ready to take advantage.

      Gonna be a long, hard, fun season. The whole top 5 are pretty much on fire and everyone of us are currently in a bit of a battle for the title.

      Oh behave, Citeh will steamroller Utd, I really cannot see us beating Citeh this year, the only hope was that they wouldn't be quite as motivated this year as last but if anything they look even better this year and every bit as hungry. All we can do is play the best we can and keep growing as a team and hope they slip up but I very much doubt it.
