      The double, is it on?
      Mar 14, 2019 01:17:18 pm
      Lets debate it

      Are we playing well enough throughout the squad to win both the league and champions league?

      Ive us winning the league by 1 and im getting more confident on that as I look at the fixtures

      Champiobs league we can beat abyone

      But will one slip us up going for both or is it on?

      Only Gary Neville knows for sure.  :)

      But seriously folks...it's all about consistency. We have the team to beat anybody. It's just a question of stringing together performances day-in and day-out. Eight league matches and potentially five in the CL. Let's finish in style.

      Biggest questions will be depth in the back line and overall fitness levels. Strengths will be midfield depth, the forward line and of course, our manager.

      I'm just glad we're still in the Champions League as I think a defeat last night would've been hugely demoralising going into the last run of Premier League games. That win is a huge boost going into the game against Fulham and we should simply have a winning mentality with every game that comes by. There's no one that we are going to face from now until the end of the season that we can't defeat.

      Let's just keep winning and see where this awesome ride takes us; one thing is for sure, it's going to be fun.

      If we did, would these boards become almost totally quiet (as with winning post-match threads vs. matches where we draw or lose) or would everyone who has been slagging the team  all season come in and say they were with the boys all the way?

      You’d need to ask them Rob mate.

      I’ve given up trying to second guess those who have no real interest in the club/team.

      Not sure there is much wrong with him expressing his feelings at the time.
      Maybe it's a better indicator of how opinions (and momentum) can change after a couple of results.

      It's all in the nature of most fooball fans, peeks and troughs, spells when you feel like we can beat the world and spells when you can't see where the next goal or win will come from

      You have to be in it to win it, and we are, so yes, we can do it but from a probability standpoint i am not overly confident we can. This is simply and only because i have concerns, perhaps unfounded, that our front 3 will burn out from the physical and mental demands of chasing the double, as we don't have quality cover for them and the gap between them and Origi/Sturridge is too large, so they'd have to play every game.

      If the players who are selected for the next remaining games do their job, we can beat anyone, it’s as simple (well kind of) as that. Just do your job, and only focus on what you do on the pitch

      It's definitely within the capability of this team and I feel the run in the CL is going to help our League form and keep us in a rhythm.

      Well if we do it and that’s a big if , because we have had some quite fantastic teams who couldn’t manage it,
      This team will go down in folklore as the third Liverpool team in history to complete the fete , considering the juggernaut that is city I would argue this would be the greatest feat .

      Absolutely we can, said this before I'll say it again,  We are every bit as good a side as City, they may have more quality to choose from but overall we are on a par t least,
      The media (Sky) mainly will tell you different,  they'll conjure up little bites of information telling the world how we were once ten points ahead and have now squandered them away , they'll come up with "City are the best prem side , Ever, well f**k off with that sh*t,
      We are 1pt behind and not going away,  so let's see how they cope with us breathing down their necks, they didn't have it last season coz the breezed it snd were already out of the CL in the run in,

      We of course have yet to cross the premier league winning line which has its own pressures but i reckon we.are better placed at handing the pressure  having reached major finals in recent seasons, 

      City will feel the heat if their not already, the signs are there, missing key players at the most crucial part of the season, the pressure will build, 

      So yes for me the Double most certainly is within our capabilities, and,  WHY THE FUCK NOT ??

      Hang on a minute.

      Last week we were apparently terrible and bottling it.

      Our Midfield didnt score enough goals.

      Salah was having a terrible season.

      We should have Beaten Man U and Everton away and dropped 4 points.

      Fun tho it is we don't want to get ahead of ourselves. Klopp won't get carried away after Bayern. He knows nothing is on if we start looking to far ahead. Down the years having the right attitude going into games is vital.And it's even more important for the flair players, Salah,Mane,Bobby, Lallana. One game at a time - we have no choice, it's coming and we are ready..

      It's the knee jerk principle.
      Every non win: The ship has sunk.
      Every game won: The sky's the limit.

      It was the same in the run in 2 years ago. It got farcical with 2 games to go, when Arsenal closed the gap to 1 point, even though we had a game in hand. The gloves were off. Players crap, coach crap, board crap, owners crap, the lot. We won the game in hand 4-0 the next day, finished 4th, and 12 months later we were off to Kiev.

      The ideal is to not get carried away by wins, and not lose the plot when we don't. There are too many games left to play, to give a definitive answer to the question,  one way or the other. Atm, we should just enjoy competing for both, and let it play itself out.

      It depends upon whether you really want a debate or whether you want fan service? If you want an honest answer then on the evidence of what we've seen since the beginning of Jan, then no, we simply haven't played well enough on the road, Bayern aside. We need to put together an extraordinary run, winning all our remaining games and hoping City drop points in the league along the way. Again, is that possible? Yes, but there is a lack of evidence to suggest it's likely. We'll probably know by six o'clock on the 14th of next month whether we're playing well enough to stand a chance.

      If you're after a fan's answer only then, sure, of course we are. Either way, with any luck, we'll know by June 1st.
