    It’s 5 games in. There will be no gloating even if we are 5 pts ahead with 5 games to go.

    We would have lost at Stamford Bridge last season if it wasn't for Sturridge's super strike and we needed penalties to beat them in the super cup.
    We play them again after Napoli and this time around we have to win imo. I don't think this year's Chelsea team is better than last season's.

    Chelsea looks good. They play well, have some good young guys on superform and this gang play for the shirt. We will drop points if we don’t watch out.

    Not easily - nobody takes points off us easily - but for sure it's a potential banana skin. However, it feels as though Klopp has the squad, the whole club in fact, well aware of such dangers but unfazed by them, which is exactly where we need to be mentally..

    They look all over the place at the back. In their previous 2 games they’ve conceded twice in the latter parts of the game.

    We’ve kicked on a bit since the super cup which was played in stupid heat. We’ll batter them.

    The breakdown on their history must have been an impressive two seconds.

    Virgil exemplifies that mentality the most, imo. They all want to win every game so badly they wouldn't dare take it for granted.

    This would be a great time to be playing City. That is a very rickety looking defense.

    They are young and have no fear. But their defence is weak. It’s a big big game for us

    Article: Joelinton is a much better defender than VD.

    Perhaps put in a bid in January?


    The other games thread on the fume is pure gold. The keepers taking bribes conspiracy is in full flow. There is also this gem.

    We will do well to keep them out other end, those kids are well up for it. But they will continue to concede bucket loads. High scoring game, maybe 3-3 or somefink.

    Pep doesn't have a clue and their defence is shit, good to see they don't go in for hyperbole too much.

    It’s not just the Chelsea game - these next 7 league games will define our season.

    We have Chelsea & Utd away and Spurs, Leicester & City at home.

    In between all that Sheffield Utd & Villa away.

    So, thats the only 2 games we didn’t win at home and 2 of the 5 games we drew away last season, plus a top 6 game with Spurs.

    21 points on offer - anything more than 13 means we’re tracking up on last season - so maintaining last season’s results and taking additional points from these games is critical.

    Right now - with City having potential defensive issues, Utd shit, Chelsea & Leicester bedding in new ideas & Managers - this next period is critical to how our season could pan out.

    I shouldn't have done it but I did anyway...we finish the season like this:
    AWAY at Arsenal
    HOME against Chelsea
    AWAY Newcastle.

    I really, really hope we have the title sown up before or after that Arsenal game because I can really see SKY, BBC, BT-sports doing a "redemption" segment or whatever before the Chelsea game with Mourinho in the studio, gloating about who he cost us the title. Gerrard slipping, etc. etc.
