93/94: Man Utd - 1st (+8 pts)
94/95: Man Utd - 2nd (-4)
95/96: Blackburn - 7th (-28)
96/97: Man Utd - 1st (-7)
97/98: Man Utd - 2nd (+2)
98/99: Arsenal - 2nd (0)
99/00: Man Utd - 1st (+12)
00/01: Man Utd - 1st (-11)
01/02: Man Utd - 3rd (-3)
02/03: Arsenal - 2nd (-9)
03/04: Man Utd - 3rd (-8)
04/05: Arsenal - 2nd (-7)
05/06: Chelsea - 1st (-4)
06/07: Chelsea - 2nd (-8)
07/08: Man Utd - 1st (-2)
08/09: Man Utd - 1st (+3)
09/10: Man Utd - 2nd (-5)
10/11: Chelsea - 2nd (-15)
11/12: Man Utd - 2nd (+9)
12/13: Man City - 2nd (-11)
13/14: Man Utd - 7th (-25)
14/15: Man City - 2nd (-7)
15/16: Chelsea - 10th (-37)
16/17: Leicester - 12th (-37)
17/18: Chelsea - 5th (-23)
18/19: Man City - 1st (-2)
19/20: Man City - 2nd (-17)
20/21: Liverpool - 3rd (-30)

In January we were allegedly the worst ever defending champions. Stats show that Chelsea and Leicester were worse recently on both points and positions. Although we have seen the third highest points drop off from the title winning season, finishing 3rd is actually miles better than Blackburn, Leicester, Man Utd and Chelsea (twice).

Not bad for a reserve defence for 30+ games this season.

Liverpool need a 3 month mid-season break to win the title.

Let's hope Covid's a thing of the past next year.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Yeah we were going to blow it if we didn't have that break before those last nine games.

What do comments from Klopp seasons ago have to do with where we finished this season?

‘Yeah but........’

Quick to criticise other managers. Even quicker to deflect even the manager of your club is criticised

Listen, I thought you did great. When I saw you were top of the table at Christmas I thought "they'll do well to scrape top four on the last day of the season"
----------------------------------------------------------------------
“ What do comments from Klopp seasons ago have to do with where we finished this season?“

Yeah but.............
----------------------------------------------------------------------
He loves a moan
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Yeah not like it’s a trait in most, if not all PL managers or anything. You seem surprised by it. Almost as surprised as when Ole moaning is pointed out to you
----------------------------------------------------------------------
I was talking about you, you div
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Obviously

Bet you meant to reply to VC’s post

You literally never post anything decent.

Not when poor posters like you are around. Life is too short for that.

If you ever want to stop being a d!ckhead let me know.

After being knocked off their perch, I see United fans have finally found their cojones after finishing 2nd in the league and reaching a Ropey league final

Roll on the good times.

posted 2 weeks, 4 days ago

The fun thing is you've sharticles like how 2nd itsn't good enough from maguire (how'd he know lol) or fernandes is the new cantona etc.

The implosion about 10 games into the new season will again be entirely predictable.
