Managed to get to pub.
Matches are now stereotypical.
They pack the defence, we huff and puff and have lots of possession.
Half time pep gives a bollocking ,
Second half we score a couple , give away a bit of a soft goal
3 points
Bit difficult in a pub full of scousers who cheer every opposition touch and go mental when City let in a goal .
Which leaves us with the question
If Liverpool get knocked out of Europe on Wednesday, which is not beyond the realms of possibility, they will only have 8 games to play in the league.
If City continue as they are doing they could play upto 17 more games in all competitions.

Will we be able to win them all?
Will the pool implode if they lose on Wednesday?
Will we?

Pep has squashed the rumours of him going to Juve..
Said he may stay another year after the two remaining...

All good questions Bert. You are right, our league games are very formulaic now, dominate possession and the opposition defend and hope to pull a draw or sneak one. In actual fact the games when teams have come at us is when we have struggled the most, par example: everton, newcastle. So we spend a great deal of time trying to break down resolute defending, and it's not easy.

As for watford, I feel for any time that goes down by the first goal, which I'd say was offside but the result was not in doubt.

As for number of games to be played, I think there is also a benefit in having a rock hard fit team, playing in 3 comps still can have benefits. Do teams get tired? Yes they can, but I'd rather be busy on 3 fronts than focused on one only.

Pep loves this shit, he can deflect media with the best of them. I believe both us and pool can drop points, it's gonna get very interesting. L'pool to leap above city only for us to win it on the last day of the season? :D

goal difference would be nice, just for that "that was your best? fuck you, try again", albeit absolutely terrifying to experience.

I think both of us have even run ins in terms of teams we should demolish and ones who will be problematic. spuds have quite a part to play, chelsea fucking hate liverpool and i'd expect them to fight hard in that game, and we have the rags at the swamp... so we both have loseable games ahead of us. just have to lose less than those cunts.
