As a Liverpool supporter I can agree with you Steve - it's not a case of throwing the match, that would never happen.
Sometimes you have to face reality and admit we do not have the resources to compete with the likes of Chelsea - they have also had a clear week and have a big squad to choose from.
I think the previous poster is the one throwing his toys out of the pram & needs to realise that Sunderland and/or Stoke might make the argument academic.
Having said all that I think we are quite capable of beating or drawing with Chelsea.
Any result is possible Bill, especially the way things have gone this season with so many surprise results and more losses for the teams at the top of the table than in recent years. You also make a valid point that Sunderland and Stoke are not going to be walkovers for us. All the focus seems to be on whether Liverpool can take any points from Chelsea, and if they do its a given that the titles ours, which is not the case. Sunderland this Sunday is going to be a tough game, one I expect we will win, but certainly not a team than can be taken for granted. After all they very nearly took all 3 points from Old Trafford earlier in the season.
Good luck for Sunday, i'll be cheering your lot on, as much as it pains me to do so! ;-)

Which do you think is more important to the liverpool players - the record or their personal reputations? The match will be watched by millions worldwide and no player would want either the audience or their fellow professionals to think that they would throw a game.
i wouldnt even say its mainly tabloid from what i see its mainly fueled by the scousers.
Seems like they have developed a small club mentality now and dont see how they call themselves fans whey want their team to lose for the sake of another club.
Same again next season i think
