      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?

      Fans get emotional.
      Brian's a solid poster.
      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.

      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.

      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.

      It's called emotions mate, things get said directly after a bad result. People get frustrated with some of the performance's I do, but couple of good results and the train is back on the tracks thundering down the line, just enjoy it and see where we end up.

      We have had so many near misses in cup finals and leagues that I don't want to forecast anything but if there any justice I'd be overjoyed with either pl or CL trophy. Both would be off the scale. It be difficult to win even one but its guna be one hell of a ride if my heart can take it.

      If the double is on, there's one thing for sure We are Liverpool!  Which means if there is s a difficult way to do the double we will find it.

      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.

      Our away record in the league has been impressive. Our away record in the CL hasn't been great until the Bayern game.

      Luckily we are facing Chelsea, Tottenham and Wolves at home.

      The other 5 games in the league are against teams in the bottom 7 (3 of them currently in the relegation zone).

      City have the tougher run-in and a huge pile up in April which is where points will be dropped I'm sure.

      Let's do this!

      We have had our fair share as well, it all balances out over a season.
      The Spuds put up a better show than I thought they would today, and could of easily got a draw out of the game.
      Lets hope City drop points somewhere.  :mad:

      If we get even one piece of silverware I be delighted. Since 05 we have only won a FA cup in, 06 and League cup in 2012  but been beaten in four Cup finals and missed out by tiny margins for a few premier league titles. So we deserve a wee bit of luck and a trophy. I think once we get the first trophy more will follow. First one is always the hardest. Can't take more heartache. We been.brilliant this year had a blip with draws against Everton Leicester and West ham. I hope that dosent come back to haunt us.

      I can only see Barca winning the ECL and I can't now see where City will drop points. My bet was they'd draw at Utd but Utd are in terrible form at the moment. I honestly think if Utd do not beat Everton today, they'll not bother turning up against City because they won't be able to get fourth (or it'll be almost impossible).

      Imagine finishing second on 97 points and losing only one game!

      We *need* to win at least one.

      If I had to pick it would be the Premier League. Won the revised Champions League. We need to win the Premiership to reclaim our rightful place as the best team in the country. Our history demands it. Our world wide fan base demands it but it is the home grown fans, the locals as it were, who deserve it. The lads & lasses that stood on the Kop..when it was the "Kop"in the 60's who played their not insignificant part in taking this club from the old second division to the pinnacle of European football.

      Not deliberately trying to be nostalgic just saying feelings for this club run deep, very deep and many of the old guard don't have many seasons left.

      We could win all our remaining games 5-0 and not win the League/European double.

      If I had to put my house on it though I'd say it won't happen.  Too much intensity at this stage of the season.  Barcelona have a huge luxury when it comes to resting players and having their focus 100% on the Champions League whereas we don't have that.

      I'm more than prepared to be surprised though.

      Sadly, we have need for Man City to drop points. Not looking like it is going to happen.

      Somehow, I think we can beat Barcelona.

      No. The League isn't in our hands and I can't see City dropping points. As I said at the time, I believe we blew it at Everton. The Champions League though? Definitely in with a shout and if we are to fail to win the league again, I can't think of a better runner's up prize.

      Personally don’t think it will happen and without people taking this the wrong way - although it would be absolutely amazing to win the Champions League, I think I’d feel slightly unsatisfied.

      Taking nothing away from winning it and really hope we do but I think we’ve been that good and strong in the league that we deserve that too.

      I can only see Barca winning the ECL and I can't now see where City will drop points.

      So I should not bother anymore since City is going to win it and we're going to lose it? I guess I'll show up only when things have taken a positive turn?

      Just like those who leave 10 minutes before the final whistle. Only to turn back when Anfield roars for a goal after taking ten steps down the exit...

      What's the point of winning today's game then? I feel so disappointing....

      You can be bothered and still have the feeling that City won't drop anymore points.

      I find it hard to see where they will drop points, that doesn't stop me thinking we can win every game and be there ready to capitalise if they do.

      In answer to the OP, yes it is most certainly on.

      We win our remaining 3 league games, we win the league in my opinion. Citeh will drop points, I am sure of it. It starts with the derby on Wednesday and rest assured we will see a different united team than we seen yesterday. After that they are away to Burnley and then a tricky game against an in form Leicester. Don’t forget this team looked invincible until they lost back to back games against Palace and Leicester. They are beatable and it might come in a game that we least expect it, but it will come.

      We just need to focus on our games and not give Citeh a chance to breathe easy. Hopefully come Friday night we are 4 or 5 points clear but, if not, we dust ourselves off and go again.

      As for the CL, I think we have the beating of Barcelona on the evidence of their games against United. When United managed to press for all of 10 minutes, Barca were at sixes and sevens. Trouble for them is we can press far longer and far more effectively. If they give up the chances they gave to United, they will not be getting away with it as easily.

      City of late always seem to start games full on and get an early goal. I think if you keep it tight for the first 20, if it’s still 0-0 they go off the boil a bit and teams would be able to sit out a draw or even nick a goal when they start to really push on.
      Surely I’m not the only one to see this, with all the pro managers with their genius tactics!
      If this can be implemented I’m sure they will draw at least 1 of their last 4.
      If that’s the case, I think the double is on 😊

      Shithouse behaviour. We've played Barca three times in knockout European formats. Won the f**king lot. They've only beaten us in a Champions League game. Let them worry about us.

      Still all about the league for me. Get past Barca and I'd fancy us to beat Ajax or Spurs.

      We're better than Barca though mate. Been watching them in CL this season and they've been underwhelming to say the least. Spurs held them at Nou Camp. Lyon held them at home and they just about scraped past PSV. Even the Utd game when they won 3-0 was down to Messi's brilliance, rest of the team (aside from Couts) looked distinctly average. Utd, as sh*t as they are, carved them open on a few occasions and only couldn't finish because...well you can't polish a t*rd can you? The only fear factor is that Messi can turn it on and change their whole game like against Lyon or Utd in second leg. Even if he does, I still say we can outscore them.

      The league is a different prospect I guess but I won't give up hope. City, as fantastic as they have been, do have a loss or a draw in their locker. That Burnley game must be a daunting one for them after what they did at Stamford Bridge.

      I just don't understand this way of thinking or analysis. Citeh have Utd and Burnley away, both are extremely tricky fixtures, they then have Leicester at home who as we know can be very dangerous and are more than capable of getting something out of that game, then the final game is away against Brighton, a Brighton team who may very well be scrapping for survival in the league an din those games anything can happen.
      If you honestly can't see any scenario for them to drop points in those games then you might as well advocate that we rest players in the league and focus 100% on the CL.

      Don't forget we were looking very good in last year's final before Real's one man goon squad did two of our players and the second of those became a walking mistake in goal (or whatever the reason he had such a shocker).  The only doubt is that City's results are out of our hands and they have been good enough toget needed results.

      I have no doubt we can do our part.
