Same here mate. Great times & great memories. I was only 19 when I made the trip - by train - to Rome in 1977 to see us win the first of 5. I'd pretty much given up hope of ever seeing us lift another league title in my lifetime. Glad to say that the hope is now back. Long way to go mind. If a team like City can lose 3 out of 4 league matches, then it's certainly not beyond the realms of possibility that we could too at some point in the season. Still, it's nice to be in there with a great shout at the halfway stage.

Liverpool haven't really had a bad patch yet - or at least if the bad patch was at the start of the season then it wasn't all that bad. They are bound to lose at some point and drop points over a period - it depends how long that period is as to whether they win the league or not as City and spurs prob won't drop many more points from now on. Of course it also depends on how other teams decide to play in the run in - it's a shame that Everton have never really recovered from their embarrassing and shameful capitulation to City in 2014 - esp as it wasn't needed as Pool fecked things up for themselves!
Report lurka December 28, 2018 10:39 AM GMT
I'd say there's more choke in City than this Liverpool side. City win games easy and won the league easy when everyone sits off them and lets them have the ball. As soon as someone puts it up to them and makes life difficult for them their supposed big names/leaders go missing and they look ordinary. There are no leaders in that side when the going gets tough imo.

They have always been like this in Europe and even when they won the league twice before Pep they were out of the race and had the title handed to them twice. Lyon made them look like a poor side this year, Liverpool did last year and more and more sides are finally copping on to how to play against them. Their defence is abysmal and their keeper is not great either, despite all the hype about them being a great side. If they don't beat Liverpool next week I can't see them closing the gap or putting enough pressure on Liverpool to make Liverpool crack. I'd actually fancy Liverpool to come out on top in that game and they should be looking to win it although they know they don't have to.

City and spurs prob won't drop many more points from now on. 

See absolutely no reason why Liverpool should drop more points than City and Spurs to be honest.

A lot can and will happen between now and the end of season, but to predict that City and Spurs will drop less points than Liverpool has no substance to it, and sounds like wishful thinking to me.
Report PorcupineorPineapple December 28, 2018 12:37 PM GMT
Don't think it's necessarily wishful thinking to suggest we will drop more points than City over the next half a season. They finished 25 points ahead of us last season and their numbers were off the charts for the first 15 games or so. They're clearly a very special team.

Could depend a lot on cup runs, injuries and tiredness now. We're in a good spell but got lucky to get 2 extra points at the pit and, since then, have played some poor teams who've sat off us rather than push up and be aggressive in our half.

Hope we carry on. We win the treble, get 101 points and remain unbeaten obviously but we haven't had a real knock to our confidence yet (apart from Red Star probably) so not sure yet how we'd react to our wobble if and when it comes.
Report mafeking December 28, 2018 12:53 PM GMT
fairly astonishing that team that had won 45 of their previous 53 league games suddenly loses 3 out of 4 from nowhere
Report buddeliea December 28, 2018 12:53 PM GMT
Yes, that's why I said a lot can happen and will.
Thing is at this stage,dare I say it!!, Liverpool do not look more likely to drop points than anyone else, in fact were I not a rather nervy Liverpool fan, I would probably predict that the gap will widen!!

But I aint predicting that!!
Report n88uk December 28, 2018 1:58 PM GMT
Tbh 6 points is quite a big gap when the top team has dropped 6 points all season. Yes you can think of way bigger leads being dropped, but in those days the points tallies were much lower.

If Liverpool beat Arsenal and City in their next 2 games hard to see them not winning it, yes Spurs might still only be 6 points behind, but they'd probably be looking at going virtually unbeaten themselves to actually win it.

From Man City's point of view they need to beat Liverpool really, even a draw for them, catching up 7 points when you don't even play the team in question is going to be difficult when they're accruing points at such a rate. Even if they won't sustain the current pace, you'd still not be allowed virtually any slip ups yourselves to win it.
Report n88uk December 28, 2018 2:06 PM GMT
Most likely way teams unravel is with fixture pile up with Europe etc. City themselves very likely be in CL in April given their draw, Liverpool and Tottenham have tougher draws, but could both still easily be in it come April as well.

If you look at Liverpool's only real rough patch of the season it was around the time of the CL games where they got turned over by Red Star and co., they had some average performances in league games around that time too, but they still won like all the games.

After this week Liverpool don't really have any fixture pile up until like April if they remain in CL then, as the fixture pile up for Europe doesn't norm being until the QF's when you have to play QF + SF 4 games in 5 weeks. Tottenham and Man City are both in the Carabao Cup themselves so have more fixture pile up in January.
Report mafeking December 28, 2018 2:10 PM GMT
agree it will taking an awful lot of losing should they pick up the 6 points this week

spurs could certainly get within 1 result of the lead by the end of feb - next 8 games are as friendly as you could ask for - but after that they still have the top 3 other best teams away. pressure could come into play then if it's close

i'd expect spurs to get somewhere between 85 and 90 from here with 11 home games left 9 of which are against the also rans. as you say though might need somewhere nearer 95

From Spurs pov you're of course hoping City vs Liverpool is a draw, and Liverpool don't beat Arsenal (rare I guess for a Spurs fan).

Liverpool should win comfortably tomorrow, Arsenal's defending is actually worse under Emery than it was under Wenger!

I believe this title race will still be between Liverpool and City, City will come good, not so sure about keeping clean sheets but there is way too much attacking talent to keep losing games?

Has Pep ever even lost 3 league games in a row for any club? I can't remember it anyway.

tottenham have played and lost to both Liverpool and Man City at home this season, can't see them going to Anfield and City and getting anything, but should finish comfortably above Arsenal and Chelsea.

Imo both dropping points will be better for Spurs in the long run, and yer you have to expect Liverpool to win tomorrow, Arsenal's defending is a shambles.

Lets face it, if someone had told you a few weeks back that City were going to lose 3 of their next 4 league games, you'd have had them shipped off to the funny farm. We're only at the halfway stage of the season right now. With 57 points still to be won or lost, there's nothing that is even close to being decided at this moment in time. I'm not looking any further than our match against Arsenal tomorrow. I dare say Klopp will be saying the same to the players.

Jurgen has lost three finals as manager of Liverpool.
Twice they were 2nd favs,and the other I imagine would have been pretty even.
Dont know about the Dortmund finals.
I am pretty sure though that if City finish above Liverpool,from what I have see this season,
it wont be because of choking from Liverpool.
We are 4 pts ahead with half the season left!!
