Yeah i think CL qualification pretty much done. Focus on the FA cup or even the league cup next seasonDoesnt really matter.
If we finish 4th and Chelsea 5th but Chelsea beat City and win the CL then there will just be 5 teams in the CL next season.
The only way we can finish 4th and get bumped out of the CL is if Chelsea finish 5th and win the CL and Arsenal win the Europa League.
Still possible but a long shot.
I mean we're a long shot to finish 4th anyways. Haha
CL will still be a shitshow next season with covid travel restrictions, empty stadiums etc so not too concerned about missing it for one season. Just need to make sure we miss Europa League also.Yeah i think CL qualification pretty much done. Focus on the FA cup or even the league cup next season
Means a lot to clubs still in european cup play right now (city, chelsea, utd, arsenal). It's cute actually.CL will still be a shitshow next season with covid travel restrictions, empty stadiums etc so not too concerned about missing it for one season. Just need to make sure we miss Europa League also.
Not done at all just yet. Chelsea are 7 clear at the moment but we have a game in hand. They play City this weekend, we play Southampton at Anfield and if we take care of business and City beat Chelsea we are only 4 points back with a game in hand. Win the game in hand and we are just 1 point behind.Yeah i think CL qualification pretty much done. Focus on the FA cup or even the league cup next season
Good on them for taking their chance but they got really lucky to make the final. Drawing Porto and then beating the worst Real Madrid team I've seen in years, no idea how we lost to them. We've been so sh*t this season. They managed to avoid Bayern and PSG altogether and Barcelona and Real are both shadows of their former selves.Tuchel has done a magnificent job at Chelsea. It is amazing they have made a CL final. I do wonder though with crowds and a normal European competition whether it would be the same. City are by far the better side, just don't feel this Chelsea side is that good.
We need to get back to winning trophies next season.
Agreed on the terrible Real team, just shows how bad we are this season as really we should have beaten them.Good on them for taking their chance but they got really lucky to make the final.

Good timing from Chelsea and taking the opportunity when it presented itself. We had that same opportunity with the draw we got but we didnt take it.
Its a combo of both. Midfielders being shifted into defence killed us, and then we lost Hendo.I'm more concerned about buying a top forward tbh, we need goals, too
Think the 2nd half collapse has more to do with lack of goals than centre backs injured
Yeah cant see where we get the money for that. We just need to re-sign Gini then dont need to worry about midfield. Then one top forward, one top CB.We aren't selling Mo
Problem is how we're gonna raise the funds to get the players we need, we basically need 2 CBs, one midfielder and one top forward
You were a pretty good goal scorer tooI saw a video on Redmen Tv today about talk of selling Salah. I watched the first 2 minutes and switched off because of work. But if there is just an ounce of truth to this, it just goes to show how much Liverpool FC can self implode. No club shoots itself in the foot more than us. Ian Rush is the last prolific goal scorer we've had, and that was in the 80s. And even then, he had a year stint with Juventus. For whatever reason, we can't hold onto goal scorers. Torres, sold to the ******* scum. Saurez, Barcelona. I know he wanted to go to Barcelona but hey, David de Gea wanted to go to Real. Great clubs keep their priority players. Our track record is shithouse in this regard.
I'm putthing this season down as an anomoly. But next season I expect us to be right back in the thick of it, but that will only happen if Salah and VVD are in the team. We need to nip any talk oif Salah leaving in the bud.
Salah is not off to Real Madrid.Salah has been the next Galactico in world football for at least 12 months now. surely you realise our owners have operated the same way the entire time, they sell a big asset for 70m-120m in instalments and a bunch of smaller assets for 30-60m and boom there's our kitty for the season. sell 1 of the front 3 to replenish the entire squad, another no-brainer. especially considering how mentally fatigued they all are, some are in need of a change of scenery, some need a change in teammates, but we definitely know we need revitalisation and can't really just go again with the same team again
