Yep ok, so lets look at what I said.
Consistent performances win championships.
With consistent performances the goals arrive to win games in the first minute at times, sometimes in the last minute and sometimes they don't arrive but you still play well.
Only last week at home with 15 minutes to go when it was 11 vs 11 against Wigan you were 1-2 down and it was a fair reflection of the game. Thats not the kind of football that wins championships.
You've also done this on 2, 3 or 4 other occasions this season.
Liverpool have and are continuing to improve.
I just don't see you going on a run of 20 games playing well and dominating each game.
Chelsea will dominate just about every game they play for the next 2 or 3 months thats what you are competing against.
I'm exactly right here.
-Liverpool, PLAYING POORLY, getting beat
-Opposition gets player sent off and in last 15 minutes StevieG probably turns it around on his own and the dipppers win
- Liverpool had done that 3 or 4 times PLAYED POORLY AND STEAL A RESULT
- LIKE I SAID, you can't continue to play patchy football all season and maintain the points
-Look at last week, the draw at Stoke, POOR PERFORMANCE IN THE GAME by Liverpool, StevieG did his 1 man act in the last 10 minutes but the woodword stopped him
Similar miracle comebacks have happened in about 50% of Liverpools games this season and is not sustainable.
Like I said you need to aim to win 18 from your next 20 games to have a really good chance of winning the league.
Thats the form United, Chelsea and the old Arsenal teams could (and did) put it in.
Liverpool are going to fall away from this but still finish not far off the pace.
- Again the point is MIRACLE COMEBACK in 50% of games not being sustainable
Liverpool are not playing consistent championship winning football but are getting the reesults with I think 4 games already won with less than 5 minutes to go.
- Here's another one, LIVERPOOL NOT PLAYING WELL and getting a late result
Liverpool have played well in the league twice from what I've seen this season against Chelsea and Manchester United.
The rest of the games you ceretainly deserved points from them but are lucky to have so many this early in the season.
I'm impressed you did play so well at Chelsea but I just can't see your inconsistent performances getting you 18 wins in the next 20 games.
I'll admit I think Liverpool look like they could finishish close this season.
- Another one, LIVERPOOL NOT PLAYING WELL and getting results, NOT SUSTAINABLE
Do you get it now?
Liverpool were playing poor dire boring football and getting late late goals that get them 3 points they do not deserve. I'm consistently saying Liverpools position was false and they can't sustain it.
Manchester United however are CONSISTENTLY DOMINATING GAMES but are going through a patch where goal scoring is difficult.
We have had about 4 late wins recently but our overall play has deserved it.
We completely dominated the Stoke and Wigan games and got late goals.
MANCHESTER UNITEDS POSITION AT THE TOP IS NOT FALSE.
We are playing the best football, dominating games.
Getting some late wins.
It helps when your manager puts on strikers to get you a late goal rather than keeping themon the bench.
Again its consistently good performance that wins the league not unsustainable last minute wins in games that send you to sleep.
Liverpool are so dire right now I can see them finishing 5th, look at the table, lol.
And Rafa is a mad man and a con man.
Here's the content of his last 3 press conferences:-
2 weeks ago: Sir Alex is a cheat, United pressure officials to get results and only they do it
1 week ago: David Gill is using his position in the league to influence FA decisions in Uniteds favour
Now: I'm not signing a new contract, the Liverpool fans will decide who the manager is. Either I decide what player we buy or a director of football does.
Is it any wonder Liverpool are playing so poorly?
