I can see us scraping into the top half of the table come the final match of the season.

under roy hodgson, we'll be lucky to finish in the top 6. europe may be out of the question altogether this season. which means we'll likely lose torres in the summer. which, provided he picks up his game and actually starts playing, could bring in a lot of cash which can then be reinvested in the squad. maybe next season, with no european destractions, and a competant manager, we can make a real push. i'm not saying I don't want us in europe, but that's how I see it.

The reasons I asked about the latter half of the seasons is because it would be interesting to hear where LFC could potentially finish. If we regularly gain more points in the second half of the season what's our expected point total and position?

In my 8 season database, we are pretty consistent 1H vs 2H.

Very difficult to predict our final league position this season, other than to guess a top four place is extremely unlikely.

It's looking like very few points are going to separate teams positioned between about 7th and 17th. I'm expecting us to come around 10th, but a decent second half of the season could push us up higher. Forget CL football next season, possibly even Europa League.

I have to be honest, I would rather finish outside of the Europa League than play in that tournament.

That's the depressing part of it all.

It's a nice thought that we can have a poor first half, only to come to life and win 2/3 of the games in the second half of the season. We have to aim for it, but in all honesty, supported by your stats, it looks as if we'll end up mid-table.
