      Agreed !  We've kept 5 successive clean sheets, having not conceded since 4th Feb, which is remarkable at this stage of the season.

      We just need to start moving the ball quicker in midfield and amongst the front 3.  The old Liverpool adage of "pass & move" will see us back on a roll again.

      I've got a good feeling about the next 2 months, and this board may well be a lot quieter in 5-6 weeks (the naysayers going AWOL!).

      Come on you MIGHTY REDS!!!!

      Yup we have a solid base again for the front guys to relax and play a lot more freeier I feel, and as klopp has said we have created plenty chances to win some of those draws, Salah's mini dry spell wont last.

      Folk have also not given Mane enough credit recently for being brilliant, he has stepped up again.

      In 2017-18, the difference in prize money between 1st place MNC and 4th place LFC was 5.8 million pounds (1.9 mill between 1st and 2nd). In other words, negligible, especially when compared to the massive prize + market pool money available in the CL.
      Fans may cling to such foolishness that losing in the CL is a blessing, but no owner would punt on an opportunity to rake in such an enormous financial windfall.
      Begging for a CL knockout ?
      Declaring LFC's string of nil/nil ties "good results" as they the team drops 8 points in the standings?
      Hope the team shows more fight than some of its fans

      Regardless, such conversation is meaningless if this team can't manage even a single goal in its matches

      I’m believer of not focusing on one or the other where the CL and the league are concerned. I can happily let go the domestic cups if it really will benefit our season but not one of the other two. The level of teams you play against in Europe can really give you a big boost going into your next league game if you get the win. Vice versa too.

      Take Napoli in December for example, that was a make or break game for our CL campaign, lose it and we spend Thursday nights being god knows where playing in terrible pitch conditions and having it impact our league games just a few days later. Yet, we won that game in the middle of a very hectic schedule, where we had 4 more games in a short space of time, against some tough teams; United, Wolves and Arsenal along with Newcastle. If we hadn’t beaten Napoli then I think it would have smashed our confidence and I really don’t think we’d have gone the whole Xmas period winning every game and the chances are, we’d be more than 1 point behind now.

      Beat Bayern and providing we can avoid injury, it will give us more confidence and momentum. Last season we were winning in Europe but struggling in the league towards the end because we didn’t have the squad to manage the situation properly, where as now we are better equipped and we can use both competitions to bounce off of each other and hopefully go the rest of the season winning every game.

      The 2 biggest competitions in club football, I really can’t condone the likes of Neville saying you have to throw one of them to concentrate on the other. If we don’t win the league then I’d at least like to be able to soften that blow by becoming kings of Europe again.

      Try telling stuff like this to the Boot Room Boys. Ronnie Moran would tell you to f*ck off quick, fast, and in a hurry.

      I agree with the whole post, but Napoli was a Christmas game. If we didn't win that it would have been impossible to win every game over that period regardless of confidence down to the fact even every game won but Napoli would have meant we wouldn't have won every game.

      Sorry to nit pick, but to win every game over the Christmas period that included Napoli.

      Why are you even “nit-picking”? The fact I put about how I don’t think we’d have just been the 1 point behind makes it quite clear I was talking about our league games.
      I’m fully aware if we’d have lost to Napoli we wouldn’t have gone the entire period winning every game we played. But I’m talking about the effects from that game onwards.
