      Need favors now though or to win 15 on the spin. Not sure which is more likely.

      Tough trips to united who are improving , Everton who are fighting at the bottom, villa who are strong and west ham to come as well. Can't afford any more of those performances. Brentford away and forest away where we lost last season as well.


      Yh, it’s all doom & gloom isn’t it, I dunno but maybe Jürgen reads these pages and after a while has decided Nah, I’m off, I’ve drummed it into these ppl about doubter’s & believers but alas after 81/2 years they still are in doubt !!

      WTF. Bad day out. City and Arse will lose games as well. We are still in it. Do you think either of the others would be where we are, if they had the injuries we've had. Not a F***ing chance.
      Keep the faith, were gonna win the quad this year, and F**k off all the doubters.

      Were not that busy in Feb. Have Burnley H on 10th.Then Brentford A on 17th. Then league Cup final on 25th. Have one more game in Feb tba. Which is the FA Cup.

      So should be fresh and ready to go on a run. Mo should be back soon and squad should be up for the challenge. Send Jürgen off with a trophy or two..

      Do people really believe that City is going to win every game? The chances of that are slim. They are going to drop points and they may very well drop 3 to us (which will be like 6). Don't think there's any reason to panic. Pressure is on them because right now we've not been beat when we have 11 men on the pitch.

      Mancheater C up 2-1 at Brentford. Have a go Frank.Just get men forward, Prob just sit back invite City to pick them off. Brentford are having a go, nothing to lose and had 2 decent chances...just a Foden get his hat trick.1-3

      It's not in our hands any more. City win their game in hand and they go top. They will of course drop more points before the end of the season, but will it be more than us  :( F***ing hope so. Especially when we play them at ours.

      It’s in our hands as if we beat City and win all our other games there’s no way City can finish above us.

      While we might not be at the top for as long as we had hoped it is still in our hands.

      City are our main competitor not Arsenal, we beat City and we can take the initiative again and then it is up to us to do the rest.

      Arsenal will have moments where injuries crop up as they have with us and City, so honestly think while we gave up ground to City we can make it up if we beat them.

      City won't win every game I don't think. Their form this season doesn't suggest they're as anywhere near consistent as they have been previously.

      Saying that they still are capable of going on a run right to the end of the season.

      I think we need to beat them to give ourselves a chance.

      Truth is baring in mind the midfield rebuild in the summer, most of us didn't honestly expect us to be in with a sniff of the league ( oddly enough I did )...It's a bit of a bonus to be in the conversation....let's see how it plays out.
      BTW Arsenal have got injuries now, ie Jesus and Tomiyasu were both unavailable to play against us at the weekend.

      I mean to the level we have had, Jesus nor Tomyasu would have made much of a difference to the game we played, if anything I think Havertz caused us more problems than Jesus would have.

      No one cares....It's in the past. I was just pointing out to the OP that Arsenal had injuries....as I say not one person on the good Earth gives a monkeys.

      I think those without hope in their hearts will be assuming that City will win all their games including our head to head with them. The conclusion is that we have already lost the league. Even if our head to head ends in a draw, City would walk away with the title.

      So for those without any hope, just give up now… just as many did at HT in Istanbul, while the rest of us walk on. And so if we do win it, come back and join us in celebrating. Will be here to listen to you say “see, I knew we’d win it.”

      "So for those without any hope, just give up now"...There aren't any LFC supporters who don't have hope...all of us hope we win every game. But there are fans who think perhaps we might not pip City to the title, that's their prerogative....it doesn't mean they are any less of a supporter than you pronounce yourself to be...We all hope, and want for the same thing....Liverpool FC success.

      The question is will we match/better City's run, I'm not sure it's a tough ask and City chew through the wins year after year at this stage...that said I'm not unhappy with where we are, we've had a complete midfield rebuild and been racked with injuries.
      I'm certainly not writing us off for the league for one moment, I'd pretty much give anything for us to win the league BUT if for instance we made the top four, won the League Cup and the Europa League (a comp Klopp hasn't won) I'd be made up still certainly after last season.

      Back top.

      As long as it’s still in our hands, I remain confident. But we need players back and to stay fit.

      We’ve seen before that when the CL mid week games return City have floundered at times, dropping unexpected points, it’s entirely possible this trend will continue, so even IF they overcame us in the Big One in March it’s not a given that the league will be done & dusted, but you all know what it’s gonna be like, all the pundits will have hard on’s for City telling us all ‘We told you so’ ,

      I’m getting to the point where muting the tv/radio is the only way to escape this Brainwashing we all suffer from on a daily basis, I’m sick of it all, don’t get me wrong, you’d have to a complete idiot not to recognise good football when you see it and they do play very good football, but their not the be all and end all of football teams are they ??

      It’s looking like no other team matters, or what they do, and any coverage of their accomplishments minor or otherwise they always revert back to what City have done or what their doing or what they are likely to do,

      we’ve been top for a while now, and since the season’s start we haven’t yet reached our peak, yet we still pick points even when we at times haven’t deserved them, but but but, City will go on a 15 game winning streak, as if that’s a annual event and all,of a sudden we won’t be picking up those points undeserved or not, and City will sail off into the distance with another scrupulously win EPL title ??

      It’s everywhere you turn, tv, radio,social media, City get rammed down yer f***in throat, even f***in Carra is at it, he can’t see past them either, and don’t, just don’t mention his side kick f***in Rat Boy Neville either, if you keep uttering the same inane bullshit you will eventually believe it yourself, that’s punditry for you, that’s what we suffer from every f***in day of every f***in week, and they all come out with the same f***in sh*te, …..

      …..remember those dolls you could get that you pull a string and it spurts out the same shitty fu**ed up rant every time that’s what I’m on about……

      ….F**k OFF !!!     MUTED !!

      The media obsession with City is just repetitious, boring and lazy. It doesn't get to me, I just ignore it, treating it with the contempt it deserves. We're all different, fair enough you are irritated by it, whereas I just let it sail over my head as mindless drivel.

      We can safely say that if we win it, the opinion is that City made a mistake. But if they win it, it was expected and an obvious outcome.

      It’s like when Michael Phelps lost the 200m fly gold to Chad le Clos at the 2012 London Olympics. It was MP who made a mistake and not how good Chad’s strong finishing was.

      I’m managing my expectations, it’s absolutely amazing that we’re in the mix but just can’t see us getting results against city, United and Spurs.

      I would be more worried if you were positive about the upcoming games 😉
