  1. I don't think posters are saying that the football power brokers actively dislike Leicester or Sheff U. Rather, if you look at the way the point coefficients and Financial Fair Play regulations are structured, they are designed to ensure that the biggest clubs across Europe continue to monopolize the Champions League places, Having the big name clubs playing in the Champions League attracts bigger worldwide audiences and that translates into higher revenues. This then filters back to the 'big boys' and the existing power structure is perpetuated. However, I hope on this occasion you are right, and that a sense of fair play overrides this inherent bias. If we do get shafted, the impressive momentum our club has built this season will be seriously undermined.
  2. 41 minutes ago, lestajigs said: It baffles me, how every day people think this is gonna happen, such a stupid option thats not gonna happen Not sure why. Powerful elites always do whatever it takes to maintain the status quo and hold on to their position of power and privilege. It has been forever thus, so why would 'football' be any different?
  3. Thought I'd join you over here. Here we go! It's beginning to look like the suspension of the season, although clearly the right one given the current health crisis, will provide the perfect opportunity for the powers that be, who want to maintain the status quo in the Premier League and keep upstart clubs like LCFC, Wolves and Sheff U in their place, to do just that. Not only will they manage to justify erasing the results of the last 27 games they will. at the same time, find a way of awarding the title to Liverpool. When you have the power, and we all know money talks, you can have it both ways! Hope I'm wrong because being denied the hard-earned chance to take our place in the Champions League next season will have a huge negative impact on our progress as a club.
  4. Oh dear, half my family hail from Wigston but this North American disease is catching!
  5. I am beginning to come to the realization that the suspension of the soccer season, although clearly the right one given the current health crisis, will provide an ideal opportunity for the powers that be, who want to maintain the status quo in the Premier League and keep upstart clubs like LCFC, Wolves and Sheff U in their place, to do just that. Watch them find a way to erase the results of the last 27 games but at the same time still find a way of awarding the title to Liverpool. When you have the power, and we all know money talks, you can have it both ways!

  6. We needed the fight that has been missing for sometime last night and we got it. Including Albrighton (as a result did we even notice Grealish was on the field?) and Justin, along with the return of Nididi and Vardy re-energized the team. Perez and Chilwell are quality players but both lack intensity and grit. We will need more of the same against Watford and for our remaining fixtures. The only change should be Vardy starting instead of Nacho. Win and the pressure is on Manure to get a result at Spurs. If they don't, start planning the European tour!
  7. Great performance so far. Just need a bit of heading practice. Now we need a second to calm the nerves and finish this pathetic Villa team off.
  8. As fans we are totally invested in our club so I totally understand some of the negativity on here right now. On an emotional level, I'm fighting that feeling myself. However, the players' confidence is so low that if we transfer our anxiety to them it will create a lethal cocktail. Conversely we can play a huge part in galvanizing the players by encouraging every kick, starting against Villa. Let's do everything we can to drag this inexperienced team over the line!
  9. The cushion has allowed us to sleep walk through a dozen fixtures but that is a luxury we can no longer afford. Time for the players to wake up and show that they have some fight because, make no mistake, we are being dragged back into a dogfight. They need to show guts and determination and be prepared to scrap for victories in every game from here on in. We also need some passionate leadership on the field. Expect Jamie to step up and lead by example tomorrow night. And off the field we need a raucous atmosphere to drive us on to victory. Although I can understand why tomorrow's game is not a must win, it is surely our most important game of the season so far; a watershed moment. A win will change the whole complexion of the table and we should be able to kick on from there. A defeat, and I fear our Champions League challenge could fizzle out with a whimper.
  10. Felt a bit lonely in the 'Points Required...' thread so I thought I'd join you all here. Despite a quite awful run of form, we are miraculously still in the box seat. Our fate will, therefore, be determined by our results, not those of the chasing pack. Crucially, our recent demise has coincided with Vardy's injury-influenced goal drought. For me, our destiny hangs on the fitness of our talisman over the next 10 games.

  12. Forget this sideways and backwards low-risk approach we need to take the game to the opposition. Get up the field in numbers, with and without the ball. Rodgers must inspire some energy and fight to shake the lethargy that has infected the team. We need to play every game from here on in like it's a cup tie. We engineered the great escape when the odds were almost insurmountable so surely a more positive approach now should yield the 15 points we still need to take us to the promised land!
  13. Could be his last appearance for us I'm afraid. Bags of talent but his decision making is awful.
  14. What we witnessed tonight was a team totally devoid of confidence and lacking squad depth. Digging out a win was crucial. Follow up with a win against Villa with Vardy back on the score sheet and this could be a crucial turning point in our season. When we were on our run we were playing way above ourselves. Likewise, our recent results and performances have been way below what we are capable of. Champions League qualification and and FA cup double still on. Come on lads!
