      It's over now. Personally I think the January training in Dubai was a big mistake. Points dropped immediately after that.

      Yes 97 points is a disappointing return isn't it!!
      We have massively over achieved this season, got more points than we probably deserved and yet we lose.
      We can only hope and pray for this City team to weaken next season(s) because at the moment they are like PSG, utterly dominant.

      Ribs man....you got to stop clutching at straws there are a bucket loads of reasons you could point to.

      I agree its over as well but the main reason is City haven't budged and dropped points.

      We have pushed them all the way and I am incredibly proud of the team and players and supporters.

      I'm also proud but at the same time incredibly depressed as I can't see how any team can beat City to the league unless they themselves take the foot off the pedal or Pep leaves.
      They are as a team/squad so much better than anyone else and will just get stronger in the summer with infinite budget.

      Gutted aint the word mate, Im with you on that.

      I read your post (think it was you) on one of the other threads about how you see it and the focus on the cups next year to get some silver in the lockers and I think you may see it albeit as a matter of consequence if we are not competing mid way.

      I am keeping a tiny glimmer alive for the Brighton game but if City are 1 up in the first 10 then its done.

      Is there no limit to the amount you can spend. Not a level playing field. For a couple of months it was all over the media about man city breaking financial fair play rules. Well a fine wouldn't worry them too much so I was thinking they must be docked points then nothing since.

      UEFA sanctions are very clear:

      If City have the league sown up and win by a margin of 12 points then deduct them 10 points.
      If City win the league by 1 point then fine them a whopping £400,000.

      Simples.... ;)

      There guna have to be a day when FA and uefa say right you have x amount to spend each year. Look at barca and Madrid they just cream of the best players every summer spend sh*t loads hundreds of millions and carry on till following summer and City are doing and will do the same if they can get away with it. Slap on wrists is no good. Only thing will stop those big clubs if there docked points. No amount of a fine is guna worry them.

      Teams do that all the time... all the time

      Stop degrading this season..  makes you look odd

      Neither side have 'lost'' this league..

      We can all be gutted if it turns out we lose this but the blame game on this season's achievements and points return is weird

      Yeah 97 points and such a big disappointment. How dare THEY come In second. We expect first or nothing. Obviously none of the lads are good enough for my expectations.

      I’m gonna disown this team. If it were my own kid, I’d skin the little fella alive for failing to take first spot in class. I’m gonna kill that little b***ard. And I’ll keep reminding him of his failures for as long I’m around. Gonna get a bunch of verbal abuse from me until first place is regained.

      Hahaha!

      Brilliant season trying to compete with billionaires who spend as much as they like. January and February again have been bogey months. That's a few seasons now. Anyway two games to go we see how it goes. Citys wins 3 1-0 wins in a row is a bit deflating. So near. Heartbreaking again but proud of the team. Surely klopp luck has to change soon I hope.

      I feel like packing football in. I'm serious. I can't take this.

      How can you finish on at least 94 to 97 points and get NOTHING!!? Hurts.

      And to think it came down to that 2-1 loss at the Etihad!

      I'm feeling the same mate but even the morning after when the emotion has simmered a bit the real worrying thing is this could become the norm with City you only see them getting stronger, it's unfair and unrealistic to expect this points tally from us again next season. In 13/14 when we went close if was gutting to see us the year after falling away if just magnifies the hurt.
      We've done brilliantly this year and we don't have a devine right to win anything but it's not a level playing field and I'm questioning after 33 years of being a fan whether to carry on investing my time, emotions and mental bloody state sometimes. Believe me, it tears my heart out even thinking about it but City are killing football and the PL are allowing it.

      We haven't 'thrown' anything away

      Whoever wins this title has done just that.. won it..  No one has thrown it away in this situation



      I'm in Tottal agreement with you mate but you'll still get some saying we lost it here, or if Klopp had done that etc etc. As a neutral I can honestly say it's been the best/ most exciting season I've ever known. I applaud both sides in their fight for the coverted trophy.

      At the start of the season, I said Man City last year fundamentally changed how you go about a league campaign.

      Up until then, you are basically looking at 2.25 pts per game - ie 9 points every 4 games

      I said that now you have to find a way to win 30 league games - so in excess of 93 points given you are probably going to draw a few

      Assuming we win Sunday - we will have won 30, drawn 7 - and in all likelihood the third best points total in history

      The problem we face is a City side that have the first and second (possibly) best totals in history, in back to back campaigns.

      So next year, its not a case of winning 30 games - its actually winning 32 games (which City possibly have done twice now)

      That is statistically ridiculous (84% win rate of all league games - when most teams probably get 70ish)

      Not giving up hope yet - but these are two freakishly amazing teams the likes of which we may never see again

      The amount of vile coming from bitters fans on social media today is incredible and on radio. Seems no one wants us to win anything. Even that baldy c**t guardiola saying media and refs would prefer lpool win fkn mind games the c**t. So everyone wants us to lose they prefer a club dripping with oil wealth who have spent billions like barca and Madrid to buy the best players devolop no young players flout financial fair play and still want them to win. F**kin joke. Wankers lot of them.

      We deserved this league  but these draws against Leicester and West Ham were ridiculous. We should have won these games, but we failed to seize this opportunity. I still think that it's a weakness of Klopp, he never seems to prepare the team for the really big big occasions. We lost 3 finals and so many must-win games. Yes wwe won many games in which we were underdog but I don't remember us being properly prepared for a big big match. Remember the cup final against Man City, the Europa League final against Sevilla, the must win games vs Man Utd, Man City. I love our team and Klopp has done a wonderful job but he has to improve there. I'm asking much, for sure. This is one of the best teams ever, but we're competing against another wonderful team, with an unfair advantage.  We need to improve and get better although we're one of the best clubs in the world again.

      Luckily we can still improve the team for next  season by replacing Sturridge, Milner, Moreno and Lallana.

      We have taken this city team to the last day. Amazing considering the points were talking about.

      Its still on, but unlikely.

      Pressure is massive, they need to win, a draw is not enough, you just never know.

      So long as we beat wolves, weve done all we can do.

      I honestly thought last night was the night they were dropping points, but fuk me what a goal from Kompany.
