A hearty Congrats to Leicester winning the title literally against all odds! Spurs have made their way to second. What happens now? This has been such a topsy turvy season where Chelsea have taken a season long absence, West Ham are looking for top4?? Spurs are second and it looks like we are going to cement that 7th place finish. The forthcoming changes next season with Pep at City, Conte at Chelsea and possible Mourinho at Utd and the rise of this Spurs team, the traditional top sides in England looks to have changed with us seemingly falling out of that bracket and Utd getting pushed down the list being our only source of joy. I saw an article recently of the league table over the past 10 years and we are positioned either 6th or 7th in terms of points accumulated over the past ten years which just highlights our standing in terms of the status quo. Definitely not where we want to be and in the grand scheme of things just further highlights our decline spanning the course of almost 30 years now. I know we all long for the glory days to return at Anfield where we fight for league and european titles but given the current situation, I’m interested to know if fans would be happy with a season where we give top 4 a decent go and have a good cup run like we have had this year with the Carling cup and Europa league?
I know things are positive with Klopp at the helm but I fear we ask too much from him in terms of the quality of our players and the level of competition he is dealing with as well as the disability in offering large wages and transfer funds. Who knows what the future holds but taking a step back and looking that squad that we have and the environment in which we are competing, can we really expect titles in the foreseeable future? TBH I don’t but am hopeful nonetheless.
