      I don't think we are playing VERY badly. We have possesion and pass well. Just that we don't shoot and can't score! Or just that my eyes deceive me

      Hopefully that this will be just a blip, and we'll start motoring over the Christmas period.

      Chelsea aren't exactly firing on all cylinders and the mancs, even though looking dangerous, have a leaking defence. And Arsenal look like us in the 90's, geared up for the big games but struggling against lower opposition.

      It feels even better that were not playing to the best of our ability yet we're STILL top!

      First post for a while (and maybe for sometime afer) cos I'm in me sickbed at the moment, coughing me guts up with this f**king flu.

      Anyway back to more important matters than my health ;) Liverpool's health. I've said it before maybe we're not playing sh*t, but simply as well as we can. We're into December now and that has got to be more than just a bad run of form. We've had the odd special performance - United/Everton/Chelsea but three out of fifteen? That's more than playing sh*te. People'll look at the Wigan and City games where we've scored three and say we played well but we didn't really, we played well in spells. They weren't games we dominated for large periods, instead they were games very much like Fulham and West Ham except in those cases we didn't take the chances when they came.

      We're playing to a reasonable level at times, for example the second half against City or the first half against Bolton, but seem unable to keep pressure on for the majority of a match. We need to up it from reasonable form though rather quickly. There's players who still need to up their game, and that's not just the obvious choices but the likes of Agger, Masch and Riera as well.

      Don't get me wrong, I'm over the moon we're top and I couldn't give a monkeys if we draw every game from now until May if it means we win the league, but I'm starting to feel that 15 league games into a season is too long to keep saying "we can only get better". You look at our form and think it can only get better surely, but if it hasn't between Sunderland and West Ham why will it suddenly kick into place now?

      Almost started a similar topic myself yesterday.

      If we take a step back then yeah - we are normally chasing 4th spot at this stage of the season, so to be top of the league and knowing we are chronically under-performing then that does say a lot.

      Fingers crossed we start turning our performances around on Satdee!


      This is it. We are top and we haven't played as well as we know we can. At some point this team will find its feet (and the goal) and then it will get interesting. Saying that, we could still be top by May and still playing indifferently but I doubt it some how.

      At some point we will (need to) pile on the points with solid performances.


      When did they say that Torres will be ready?  ::)

      Just need to hang on a little longer without him! ;)

      When he's back, we'll still be top, or damn close. Then it'll be time for the rest of the league to start filling their pants!

      He's talked so often about the trophies he wants to win with us, and we all know how fired up Gerrard is about it too! He's going to be fresh, determined, and I honestly don't think the other teams will know what's hit them! :D

      Dammit. Just watched manure get a goal against sunderland in injury time to win 1-0. Still, the gap remains 6 points between us and the mancs.
      Sunderland defended and defended and done it very well but when you plan on doing that for 90 minutes you're going to be in danger. Having said that, Sunderland deserve all 3 points just for singing You'll Never Walk Alone just to remind those dirty mancs that we are (and this is where the title of this thread comes in)... TOP OF THE LEAGUE  :D

      We've gotten away with it again lads! The chavs slipped up at home to the chavs from East London. Well made up for that! This seems to be going quite well for us at the moment!

      Imagine if we had beaten those teams at home though! We'd be 10 points clear at least, but top of the table we can't ask for more! :)

      I think the press and well known football pundits are digging themselves a very large hole by the week..............

      By their logic......none of the top four are showing that they are able to mount a serious challenge for the Premiership!

      Chelsea, Man Utd and Arsenal have all failed to see off opposition that are in the bottom half of the table over the weekend and all of a sudden our 2 - 2 draw with Hull doesn't seem as bad as most of us thought.

      Everyone happy now!

      The chavs slipped up at home to the chavs from East London.

      Thats a lot of chavs - got to be honest here guv! can't stand the word chav, would prefer to call them cockney cants!

      Anyway most chelsea fans these days are rich snooty, posh fuckers who think the game makes them look cool when they go into the office on a monday morning.

      Right rant over - let the singing begin: WE'RE THE GREATEST TEAM IN EUROPE AND WE'RE GONNA WIN THE LEAGUE!

      We just got a HUGE favour from Zola. Got out of jail once more.
      If we didn't have all of those crap results at Anfield, though, we'd be well up there. We can't keep this going.
      But for now, it's celebration time.

      The Hammers dug in for us there, chuffed about that! Still top, frustrating that we couldn't be further ahead but whose to say if we'd won yesterday, the chavs would've won today and then no difference! Just got to be pleased we are where we are now! Gotta perform at the emirates, no easy feat but if we want it enough we'll produce the goods, i have faith!

      Chelsea have just had a crap result at home to West Ham.....Arsenal had a poor result away to Boro and Man Utd would have expected to be able to see off Spurs at White Hart Lane.

      Surely the league would look pretty much the same way it does now if we were all winning our games we expected to....all the top four would just be +9 or 10 points each.

      Great result...now just imagine the frustration being experienced at Chelsea, having witnessed all their rivals drawing yet being unable to capitalise and go top.
      Just another example of how tough and unpredictable the Prem League actually is.

      We still top and loving it!!!! Long may it continue  ;D

      I watched the whole game live,brave performance by West Ham,thay should finished them in 92 min,but it's OK this way,we are still the leaders,waiting for NANDO'S comeback.
      Stamford bridge felt down under the RED's pressure,so it's not that save place for the Blues anymore,is it?

      Unbelievable let off for us.

      Just a shame that we couldn't have really put some distance between us and the rest.  If we would have had Torres I would say we would have at least a 6 point gap by now.

      Let's beat the Arsenal and stay top for Christmas!

      4 games ago we were 2ND place, since then we lost 6 points out of 12, and now we're one point clear at the top. has the league gone mental? (not that I'm complaining)
