9 wins 6-4 against city draw against Chelsea , loss to United. Soz lads but got my tenner on Liverpool champs league 2015
7 wins. I six games that I think Liverpool should win fairly easily (easily for Liverpool, which still means heart attacks). I’ve added one surprise win and with a few draws in there, I see them ending up on 80 points. No league title, defense is just too crap at this point.
With the league wrapped up we’ll be on a jolly and let Newcastle off with a draw.
Rodgers is on talksport radio from 7pm tonight. ie now.
Looking at the fixtures rationally: 7 wins, 2 draws, 1 loss and a floating draw/loss I’m not quite sure about yet. 79/80 points.
Not just saying this because it’s Liverpool but we’re the strangest, worst, best team I can remember watching. Flanagan’s in a backline full of experienced international class and looking like the senior player. It won’t happen but you could drop all the clowns and play Gerrard right sided center back next to Sakho with Allen coming in to the midfield over these games that are left.
I hesitate to say I think Suarez needs a rest, also need Sakho back … at least he is willing to put his head through the ball!!! COYR keep pushing on and “Believe” ps Worthy mention in Sunday Times for Neil Atkinson!!! TAW= great show lads!!!
Neil has convinced me, the team have convinced me, and I’ve even managed to convince myself…we’re going to win the league!
Until these crazy knobheads totally disprove that theory then I’m going for nothing but wins. They might show me up as a complete arse but I really don’t care.
Southampton next, tough but not impossible to win…
I think nine – what would that do?? Would it mean a league win?? if there are less, I think better performances against Chelsea and Man City set a marker.
vs. Southampton (W) 2 – 0
vs. Man Utd (W) 1 – 0
vs. Cardiff City (W) 3 – 0
vs. Sunderland (W) 4 – 2
vs. Spurs (W) 2 -0
vs. West Ham (W) 3 – 0
vs. Man City (L) 0-2
vs. Norwich (W) 3 -0
vs. Chelsea (L) 1 -0
vs. Crystal Palace (W) 3 -0
vs. Newcastle (W) 3 -0
Are you seriously forecasting all those clean sheets??? ROFL.
8. We”ll beat city, and spurs but draw at home to chelsea and away to west ham then somehow lose 2-0 to Newcastle on the final day when a draw would seal it but still win the league after chelsea let a 1-0 lead slip in injury time.
But seriously, we are not going to get near that unless people at the ground chill out a little bit and get back having fun. Thought that the ground seemed both really nervous and surprisingly unappreciative on Sunday even after the early goal, and it was a big factor in how flat the defending was (Gerrard especially as he is always a good barometer of the mood). Rodgers said after the game he thought the crowd was maybe a bit spoilt with the big spankings we have been handing out of late. I don’t think you can blame the players for not wanting to sit on their lead when whole crowd was waiting until we got 4-0 up before singing. What’s more as Neil said, it is not as though they were bad goals, all of them the result of good movement and nice finishing. What is with applauding shelvey’s goal too, sure give him an applause when he goes off, but after a goal when the team needs to switch on it doesn’t need a civil applause because shelvey stopped his celebration.
We just might win the league this year but it is only going to happen if we don’t take wins like Sunday for granted and fully get behind the boys (who are doing a great job), especially the defense who need all the help they can get (and usually respond best to home support), to will them home.
Jesus lads! Do you really think it’s gonna be that predictable? We’ll probably beat City, Chelsea, Spurs and Utd scoring 20 goals in the process, lose to Sunderland, Norwich, Cardiff and Palace and draw with the ones who are left. We’re talking about Liverpool here – FC Bruges in 76, Alaves, Istanbul at half time, Spurs away, Arsenal first 20 mins, The Derby, Fulham on the night of the storms, Swansea on Sunday. How many of you predicted those results?
I’ve got an image of you all sitting in your dressing gowns and slippers, fire on, sipping a whisky, chalking off each win as it happens and saying ‘another one down’ with big grins on your faces. Face it, none of us are gonna look the same by mid May. We’ll all be grey or bald, fucking alopecia brought on by stress, we’re gonna be wrinkled and haggard, hands bandaged from punching walls, physically drained from euphoria and ecstasy and just generally just a complete mess. Have you learned nothing?
