    The race for 4th - LFC v EFC

    I can't see either side getting into the 70's pointswise. Abu I think you've been overly optimistic on both counts!!!

    • to acheive 73 points your need to win 10 out of the 13 games left. that asking alot. my guess is your get 67 points this season, not enough to secure 4th spot. taking into consideration that you have to play ,arsenal, man utd and spurs away. those 3 games could only net you 2 points. leaving 10 games to win outright for 4th spot. its going to be tough this season for that 4th place, if everton go on a winning spree. we will no more in the next 5 games, but if your 6th at that stage, thats it i reckon. you get 6 or 7 points behind everton, that be will it.

      • I agree with both of you that my predictions are optimistic, and I admitted as much at the start of the thread.

        Think you are right though, the next 5 games will be key for us. I think we need to take AT LEAST 12 points from them - alongside a champions league tie - to lay any kind of platform for the difficult run of games starting with the Mancs at Old Trafford. Any more slip-ups early on, will I think really dent out chances, especially with confidence in the squad as low as it currently seems to be.

        We really have made it difficult for ourselves with all those flippin draws.
