    As much as I hate the oil money clubs, FFP is a joke. Just get rid of it.

    Eh, I’m not going to go that far. Rumor is Lewis is going to sell soon after the stadium is done, so we’ll see.

    How are we bottling the league title?

    The only reason we went ahead of Man City was because they had a terrible run of games. We've lost one match all year long. Man City were always the better side.

    Probably because people actually expect Klopp to win a trophy and no one really expects Poch to do it.

    Liverpool were like 10 points clear of City on January 1st. They have dropped 11 points in the last 9 matches. They're bottling it.

    We were 7 points clear going into the City game. We came out 4 clear. If we had come out 10 clear and we’re now a point behind City it would be bottle city, as it is it’s just depressing that we might lose 1-2 games all season and not win the title.

    City had a game in hand so it was only a 7 point lead then we lost to them. So you’re talking about really only losing a 4 point lead.

    It’s a bad run but that’s what happens over the course of a season. Earlier in the year we dropped 6 points in a mere 5 matches.

    You’re just being obtuse if you expect a team to be perfect over 18 matches.

    Liverpool are also the only team in the past 10 seasons to be top of the table at Christmas and fail to win the league, having done so twice. It seems likely that will repeat itself again this year, but they aren’t #bottlers :loldog:

    It's weird how you guys are channeling your anger at Liverpool when it's the slave money at Man City that is making you guys irrelevant.

    Didn't seem to be a problem for Leicester, and they weren't 10 points clear at the top either.

    Yeah it’s just an odd phenomenon because you get it from the people from the UK, Liverpool was the greatest club of the 20th century. So there is a lot of built up frustration

    But the spurs and man city fans on here didn’t start following the sport until 2010 at the earliest so it’s a weird jealousy.

    Imagine thinking I was referencing this season.

    Apparently you’re not smart enough to realize that Leicester finished on 81 points in 15/16 and Liverpool already has 70.

    I think it’s apparent at this point you have very little substance to add to the conversation. We are 35 points clear of Leicester this season btw.

    I'm not sure what you think Liverpool being 10 points behind Leicester's title winning point total has to do with Liverpool bottling the current Premier League title.

    If we all started following in 2010, why would we be jealous of a club we’ve finished ahead of 7 times in that span and won the same amount of trophies?

    That’s what I’m asking you. Your jealousy doesn’t really make sense.

    I can’t decide which is more cringeworthy, this post or Owsley liking it. Liverpool’s success this season has you guys really flustered into making some nonsensical arguments that show a lack of understanding of the sport.

    It’s going to take a pretty big collapse from man city for Liverpool to win the title.

    The last couple of weeks have really shown the difference in depths between the two squads. If they’re struggling for a winner they can bring in Sane, Gabriel Jesus or a KdB, We are bringing in Origi and Sturridge.

    So you’re upset that you were better than us for most of the past decade but that’s come to an end and you feel Liverpool has the better future?

    This actually makes sense for why you’re jealous.

    We actually won the league cup in 2012. So you were wrong about the trophy part.
