As consolation? They are really not that. We earned the right to be in the finals.
This is a vital point, we now need a bigger favour from others but still we need to work hard to get to the last match day and still have a chance.
Come on Reds.
Even if we won every game, we still needed another result to go our way. That's still the case. We didn't throw the league when we were 14 points behind, so we're not going to throw it now.
What will be will be.
I don’t expect any team to just open up and let us take over, and a few lesser teams do come with a ploy to park the bus. I just thought Spurs were a side that could compete. To see them play with 10 defenders for 85% of the game was surprising to say the least.
Burnley, Watford, understandable. Even Leeds, wolves, Brentford, Brighton, Newcastle all have some pride in how they perform, and try to play to a decent standard.
To see spurs lower themselves to that is a shock.
Cowards football I call it. I think if Liverpool used that formation as a tactic, I’d take up fishing.
Couldn’t watch that sh*t even if we won every week.
They aught to be ashamed of themselves.
Had they played to their strengths they may have won !
That is their strengths. That's how they took 4 points off us and 6 off City. I didn't expect them to play any differently, that's what Conte is like. He's never lost here, and he won't change until he does, if at all. Almost every team has come here to play like that, and we watched it all. Whether it's wise to do that when you don't have your fate in your own hands, is another thing.
On reflection, it's not a terrible result. We always needed City to drop points and if memory serves me they are more likely to lose disastrously then draw. It's not over yet. What we need to do is hammer our next 3 opponents and get our goal advantage up..
They don't have to lose a game. It's best if they do, but two draws would have the same effect.
It's not strange he's saying prioritise the cups.
Crazy we play again on Tuesday and it would be madness now to expect these lads to play that game and then a cup final.
Away at Villa with a rotated squad I can't see us winning that either. And I think in one of his post match interviews Jürgen has pretty much said he can't see City losing and us beating Villa.
Schedule just too hectic.
It's not crazy we're playing on Tuesday, it's our reward for getting to the Cup semi final. And playing again the following week is our reward for getting to the cup final.
May is not a time for tiredness, this is the one month when the prizes for the past 9 months are handed out. So on we go. Apart from Kelleher, the full squad has had to be used and is being used, so that we can compete at the highest level. We don't have a choice, if we want to compete for the big prizes, then the schedule we now have is normal and to be expected.
If we're top of the league after our next home game, that trophy will be back in our hands. And we'll do all we can to do just that, until someone in a suit at the FA tells us otherwise.
