    We don't appear to have enough talent in reserve to make up for the injuries, sickness and our best players out of form. If we can somehow click it back together in the next few games, with significant improvements from Salah, Alison, VVD and Firmino then we'll certainly run it very close. Improvement has to be instantaneous otherwise the players heads we'll go and will pass the title to city like a little bitch.

    How is it blind optimism by saying we can win the league? Not being able to come up with a reason?
    How about being 3 points in the lead at the top of the table in February? The negativity is tiring.

    Do they give out the medals in Feb? You think we'll stay ahead of them? Why? The people who think they'll overhaul us have stated why.

    I obviously WANT us to win the league but my head is saying that the leics and west ham games have really fucked up our chance.  We had a genuine chance to put daylight between us and city and we blew it.  Right now we're struggling to get a draw let alone win matches.  3 points gap is nothing and we still have to play spurs, everton, chelsea and manure.

    No, I’ll never give up hope but then I’ve never thought we could with the squad we have.

    We’ve missed Gomez.
    We’ve missed TAA
    Fuck we’ve even missed Clyne recently.

    We simply doesn’t have the depth and that’s all there is to it.

    We’ve dropped more points in 5 games than we dropped in 19.

    Enough said.

    Yes, just.....

    1./ We have the easier run in, in terms of PL games we seem to have an easier run in on paper.... but that doesnt mean anything depending on form at the time.

    2./ We have less games to play.

    3./ Jurgen has done it before and knows how to win leagues in this position.

    4./ We will be stronger in a month or 2 than we are now. We will get better in the run in.

    5./ There is a bloody long way to go yet... if we had said we were 3 points ahead at this point at the beginning of the season we would be over the moon.

    6./ 30 years since Hillsborough, Origi scoring in the 96th minute, some of the luck we have had this season.... Omens.

    7./ Klopp has to win something at some point... law of averages

    Beat Bournemouth, batter United and we'll get this mother f*cking show back on the road. We have a lovely run in by all accounts.

    The wheels have come off, injuries, loss of form, lost the lead, and no signings in Jan.

    I dont think those of us who believe we can win the title are basing it on blind optimism. So lets look at why we can win the fucking thing:

    Fixtures:

    I saw someone say City had the kinder fixtures. I dont agree with that.
    Our remaining fixtures:
    7 home games, 6 away games, 3 top six games, 2 of them home, 1 of them away.
    Avg. points of opponents: 31.9. (Which means that their average opposition is ranked 13th in the league in the remaining 13 fixtures).
    Bournemouth (h), Manchester United (a,) Watford (h), Everton (a), Burnley (h), Fulham (a), Spurs (h), Saints (a), Chelsea (h), Cardiff (a), Huddersfield (h), Newcastle (a), Wolves (h)

    We also have two upcoming fixtures in the CL.

    City:
    6 home games, 7 away games, 3 top six games, 2 of them home and 1 of them away.
    Avg. points of opponents: 33.5. (Which means that their average opposition is ranked 9th in the league in the remaining 13 fixtures).
    Everton (b), Chelsea (h), West Ham (h), Bournemouth (a), Watford (h), Manchester United (b), Fulham (b), Cardiff (h), Crystal Palace (a), Spurs (h), Burnley (a), Leicester (h), Brighton (a)

    City are also in the FA cup, League cup final and CL.

    Injuries:
    At the moment we are troubled by injuries to Lovren, Gomez, Ox, Trent, Gini and Hendo. No doubt that we are troubled by that now, but bar Ox and Gomez all of them are expected to return shortly.
    We're playing basically one game per week for the rest of the season.

    City have a massive squad and can obviously rotate quite heavily in defence and attack. But lets not forget that they are extremely dependent on Fernandinho and dont have a replacement for him. The two games he missed, they lost.
    They'll be hoping for an inury free run in for their key players as well.
    They might be playing a lot of more games than us, and even though they have a bigger squad the intensity might show its toll at the end of the season.

    The first 25 games of the season:
    We're top after the first 25 games. Lost once and are in the lead with 3 points. That isnt a blip. Thats the form of champions. Nevermind the last two games or the last few games. Riddled with illness, injuries, makeshift defense and midfield.
    But the first 25 games have given us 62 points.


    All in all:
    The last two games have set us back, but has it ended our title charge? Cause it hasnt. We're still top. Probably second after tonight, but with a game in hand.
    No one in their right set of mind would give up now. We have a fantastic chance to win the whole fucking thing.
    Will we do it? God knows. But it will be close, and it will be a nail biting ending. It always is.
    Does City have the upper hand? No. They are 3 points behind us.
    Looking at the fixtures list, the key players coming back shortly from injury and the first 25 games we've played this season. We can win it.
    Its not blind optimism, its the impression we're left with after the first 25 games and with the last 13 to go.

    Keep the faith.

    The concern and the reason i've had a weird 'hope is lost' feeling this week is that we know City are capable of 18 wins on the bounce. No matter what their past form is, we know they can do it. However - they are even more rattled than us. They are dropping points left right and centre - I think we have to assume this will continue and if it does I think any larger gap than 4 points will see Pep focus on the cups, and especially the CL. We need to hope they actually get a tough draw in the next round to force them to have to keep putting out their first XI and risk fatigue to Fernandino and some of the other ageing stars like David Silva & Agureo.

    I don't know if we will or if we won't but I do know we will fucking keep trying and perhaps if we calm down a bit and get behind em...

    City have also a tendency to drop points by the way...

    I don't think the players are "bottling" it at all but a number of fans are... desperation is a terrible thing...


    I still think we are fucking nifty.

    Fantastic should we finally get the big one (EPL). But if not, LFC will still be my team. Come on you Redsssss. Just enjoying the process and ignoring all the scums and our meltdown.

    I cannot wait until we play united. Their defence is shit, and he has been riding a lucky wave.
