JFC, been away for work but go to any thread and it's like a bunch of hormonal women crying. Clyne, Fekir, overrun midfield, you name it, and yet here we are, 5 points up in first place. When's the last time that happened? Holy f**k.
Just because we are 5 points clear doesn’t mean that we are the finished article and don’t need to improve. Ask Klopp and he will tell you we still have a lot of improving to do.
It’s one thing getting success for a season, I.e. Leicester, but it’s a completely different scenario sustaining that success. The reason City are viewed as the bench mark now is because these last 2 years, they haven’t settled for what they have. For us to continue this until the end of the season and beyond into coming seasons isn’t by resting on our laurels just because we are top of the league, it’s by scrutinising performances that simply aren’tgood enough, by looking for ways to continue to improve the team. Otherwise we risk what happened under BR; come so close to winning it, arguably by fluke getting that close given the squad we had, failing to improve and capitalise on our position to go for it again the following season and as a result, end up setting ourselves further back than we had been for a long time.
Klopp and all his staff will continue look at ways to improve the team, why can’t the fans? Why do the fans have to pretend that everything at the club is perfect? When despite how good we are this season and how amazing the season has been so far, you can always be better. There is no room for complacency because things can soon change. 5 points clear now means absolutely nothing if we lose the next 2 games and City win theirs.
We are all at the age now I expect where we’ve seen the club come so close to winning the league at some point in the last 29 years, but narrowly miss out for one reason or another, that we have a right to be cautious of these things and not take it for granted. This year we have our best chance for a damn long time, it’s not being negative what gets posted, it’s saying what we hope happens or what we would like to see happen to ensure we don’t once again have the experience of getting so close but just missing out.
