Not being pessimistic, but if we lose to Arsenal or Spurs next month it will be a real struggle to finish above them.

Even with a game in hand, 8/9 points won’t be so easy….as both teams are winning games, Brentford away is not easy.

I love people’s confidence…..but we need to be careful, can’t afford to lose to them next month.

Agree….just don’t want us to have too much to catch up,,,,we can’t be chasing 11/12 points, as it leaves us with little room for error….plus if we are that far behind….then we are also not in the form needed to win a lot of games on the bounce….

I think we are thinking we are at the same level we were last year….

We got 92 points last season. Even if we drop off significantly, we should still clock between 75-80 which will be more than enough for top four.

Dont forget in the Covid debacle season, we got 68 points and thats with no centrebacks for half of it. We piss 75 points and more, easily, and Spurs, Chelsea, United and Arsenal are not all getting 75-85 because thats getting you into past title winning points totals.

What you're saying makes perfect sense. At this stage, we should focus on performing well and trying to string wins together because 3/4 wins on the trot can make things look very different.

So far, we've not done well enough to worry about other teams. Let's get our house in order first and the performance against Ajax is a step in the right direction.

We're on 1.5 PPG. To get to 75 points, we need basically 2 PPG from now on.

Yes, we have time…if it was 1.5 after 12 games, then it would be very hard to shift that.

Concern is that we have tricky games coming up….Arsenal and City in the next 3 league games.

I feel we need 7…..usually a draw v city and at the Emirates would be deemed decent….but we could be double figures away from top 3 with that…personally would prefer to beat Arsenal and lose to City than get 2 draws.

Lose to Brighton and not beat Arsenal next week, then we won’t be finishing above them.  At best 3rd….but personally going to be a struggle to finish 4th. We have not played well for A while now…..and can’t be predicting how we we will finish based on last season.

Well at least the pressure is off about winning the Title itself, let the cheats run away with it and start by beating Utd tomorrow.

Despite our current problems, I still think we'll come second...about 20 points behind the cheats like, but still second!

On one hand, we're soo much better than we're showing right now and we'll definitely improve. On the other, I'm not sure how we improve at this point. I thought Thiago being back would help, I thought the break would give Klopp time to get us working a little bit better, I thought the undoubted issues with athleticism would be covered over by superior technique in 90% of our games. But Brighton just came to Anfield and schooled us in lots of ways. It's really worrying and we're rapidly running out of time to improve in order to start picking up points. Plus the fixture schedule has been pretty kind. So yes, sneaking 4th is rapidly becoming a hope not an expectation.

Brighton arguably schooled us last season at Anfield too and we still got 90 plus points.

Chelsea winning late was a bit of a shitter. They’re not playing great either and if we end up in a battle with them, Spurs and United for 3rd and 4th spots I’d still fancy us although I’m not very optimistic about the next couple of games so I do think we’ll get ourselves into a bit of a hole in the short term. But time to dig ourselves out of it.

Haven’t actually looked at a table and don’t want too. But a bit like Mike said above, City twatting United today is probably the best outcome. Pretty rubbish but still plenty to play for this season.

I think we will walk the top four but somehow we dont turn up against Arsenal and City then the prospect of 10 points in 9 games terrifies me. We will be bottom half if that happens with 1/4 of the season gone.

I still think we will get 4 points out of the next two games.

We do at least have previous for snapping out of terrible runs of form under Klopp (2 seasons ago, plus 16/17 when we had that terrible Jan/Feb and made top 4 both times). Bottom half at 10 games would obviously be shocking for us but we’d have 28 games to improve and hopefully wouldn’t be anything like an insurmountable distance behind the top 4 battle.

It’ll get better…at some point!

I guess with those we at least had shown good signs before slumping so at least knew we had something in the side. I am still kind of amazed how we turned it around in 20/21, thought for sure we were done we basically have up on the league against Fulham. That's probably one of the best bits of management Klopp has had here.

I am not worried about top four but the confidence and lack of it is clearly an issue, something we need to snap out of quicktime. We really could have done with that Wolves game going ahead as two wins on the bounce would have helped and Klopp mentioned that we could have taken the Ajax performance and rhythm into it.

The fact that the manager is hoping for perfect scenarios (no injuries, the right amount of training time and spacing between games) illustrates that he knows that confidence is paper thin.
