      If we win our games City can do nothing about it so why not focus on us beating Watford and let City keep looking for our results.

      Now there's a pretty good idea.

      Let’s hope we don’t give a tepid performance like United, West Ham and Leicester!

      It better not be, or our pessimist fans (not you who's reading this) will run the boys and the coaching team to the ground.

      You know, I believe last year at this time we were pretty concerned with making sure we performed well in the run in to ensure we got CL football.

      A year later, we are concerned with making sure we perform well during the run in to win the title.

      If that's not progress, I'm not sure what is.

      Win or lose it, we've had a pretty good year (and still could have a great year depending on results) and I think that's what it's all about, giving yourself a chance to win something...and hopefully, if you do that often enough, you'll ultimately win more than you lose.

      Thank you Jürgen, we've got a chance, that's all we can ask for.

      Sorry but I do not accept that Citeh are the greatest team of all time, they are not even the greatest of the prem era in my opinion, I'd give that to Arsenal's invincibles or the Utd team 1999/2000, they were both fantastic teams.

      We need to chill the f**k out as a team and start playing with confidence and conviction again, it is still in our hands and every game is winnable but we need to get back to heavy metal football, get on the front foot again.

      Well clearly I don't understand sarcasm if this is meant as sarcastic: "10 games to go still right in the mix what more could we ask when competing against the greatest team of all time", can you point out exactly what the sarcastic bit of that is considering that many pundits are describing them as possibly the greatest team of all time.
      BTW whether you like my posts and opinions or not has more or less 0 effect on me, I could not care less and it certainly won't stop me posting.

      We won't have a better chance than now, so Klopp needs to get that message into the guys, perhaps stop trying to walk the ball into the net and try shooting, rebounds and own goals could come our way, need to get that lucky streak back, need to go for it and not play overly safe, get 3 points and let city start to worry about the games running out.

      Think more than anything we need the urgency back.

      Recently, we have looked very lethargic, I think it starts from the back so maybe Matip and Van Dijk need to move the ball out wide quicker, same goes for Henderson (when he plays) but we really need that urgency back.

      frustration is understandable and today so very apt. Its the constant barrage of posts suggesting Jürgen doesn't know as much as forum members in either tactics or team selection.
      This is something that always makes me laugh The suggestion that because some one as not played professional football that they can not either see  mistakes that managers have made or that they could not do the job as well....

      Are you aware that José Mourinho (like him or not) one of the most successful manager in modern football having won

      Cups includes competitions such as Community Shield, Supercoppa Italiana & Supercopa de Espana

      Mourinho has won eight league titles during his managerial career and he has done so in four different countries: Portugal, England, Italy and Spain.

      He has won a total of 13 domestic trophies and is a two-time winner of both the Champions League and Europa League.
      All in all, since 2003, the Portuguese has amassed 25 trophies as a manager.

      All that and he never played professional football

      So it's literally just bad luck you aren't one of the most successful manager's of all time eh? Just not had the breaks?

      Maybe I could have been, but as i so often turns out in life you take the wrong turn for a myriad of reason...
      I know  few people that could have played professional football, myself included, there were a few sports in which I excelled, Track and Field,Rugby,Basket Ball,Cross Country,Football...PE teacher thought i was destined to become a sports person while Sisters thought that I would become a Doctor or a Lawyer

      Discovered sex at 14 years and 7 months and night clubs and all of that when out the window... Shacked up with a 19 year old Girl at the age of 16, bedding a 34 year old when I was 17, lived with her for some 8 months after being kicked out by my step dad,

      A glass of wine in her hand;
      I knew she would meet her connection;
      At her feet was her footloose man;

      No, you can't always get what you want;
