Do Liverpool have to win the PL ...

This season?

Or if they don’t is it classed as bottling it? Is where they are now a case of one of two categories - success or failure?

Taken from another site...

They had leads at least as big last season, but never quite as overwhelming. To be so far ahead at Christmas can be a poisoned chalice, with each celebratory sip bringing immense pressure, fixture congestion and the challenge of managing different competitions; every possible slip is pronounced and emphasised. This advantage as early as October means a couple of poor results could be absorbed before any lasting damage is done. Momentum is key.

Pep Guardiola knows it. “It’s a bit like a recipe," he told Marti Pernarau in 2014’s Pep Confidential. “League titles are won in the final eight games, but they are lost in the first eight games." With the gap between first and second as big in terms of points as the gap between second and 16th, you can see why.

Liverpool have dropped 17 points in their last 47 Premier League games. To lose their grip on the title from here, they will have to drop at least eight from their next 30 – and that is based on the theory that Manchester City will win each of their remaining matches from now until May.

There was no Anfield bottling last season; winning your last nine games does not suggest a lack of nerve or character. But winning your first eight sets you up for either a stratospheric rise or an almighty and embarrassing fall. Either option is fun




If they don’t win this season I won’t go as far as saying they won’t win in the future as that’s mental but surely if they don’t win this season it’s something they’ll look back on as a huge fack up.

Winston, you were willing to talk and debate until I asked you a simple question. Is that how you act when asked a question?

What's the matter? Why the aggression all of a sudden?

I urge that we remain calm and I am genuinely interested to hear why its happening in your opinion. I suspect and expect its a completely logical reason.



If you could be kind enough.

Greatteams, you know full well I’ve been open about my faults. It’s a lie to imply otherwise.

Shame you can’t be as open about yours.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

So strong opinions and stubborn, right.

My faults are I care too much about others and work too hard. Phew, you're right, that did feel good. Thanks Winston.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

No, not right. I’ve been far more open than that.

This is a bit like when you write posts saying ‘never Winstons fault’ when actually, I’m one of the few people on here who has admitted when he’s at fault and apologised.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Still waiting for those examples. We're at 7 months now....
---------------------------------------------------------------------

I never said I’d give you examples.

I know it’s a fact.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

It's a fact that I have seen you, but you don't believe me so why should I believe you?
----------------------------------------------------------------------

I couldn’t care less if you believe me. I’m just outlining why you were speaking nonsense.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

You do care. And thats the beauty.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Nope.

Reality is you’d never accept the truth because it proves you wrong, and we both know you’re not capable of ever admitting that.

There’s no aggression. I’m calm.

You chose to join this thread today to have a pop at me despite absolutely no provocation.

Yet you’re asking me why people do that exact thing?

Come on.

Yes greatteams, I’m aware I admit when I’m wrong and when I’ve done something wrong.

You don’t.

As I said, I disagree with that narrative but we can't allow it to obfuscate all issues.

So on the chance that you might be wrong, which you always honourably admit when its the case, could you answer the question?

Its possible that I joined the thread to have a pop at you without knowing exactly why I did it. It could be something operating within my subconscious perhaps.

Its also entirely possible that I didn't join the thread to have a pop at you bit even if I did, why does it mean you can't answer the question?

Sounds like a cop out to me but seriously, can you tell me the answer?

I've asked you nicely may times and still you won't tell me.

So what prompted you to comment about me and to me today then?

I hadn’t said anything to you.

Maybe if you find the answer to that question, you’ll come across the answer that you are so desperately seeking from me.

Good luck with that.

That's what In trying to find out.

If you are correct, then I did it without being aware I was doing it.

Just trying to get a explanation. So why do you think people act like this in your opinion?

Thanks in advance
