    Target: 20 extra goals in the league

I'm not a negative git like some of us on here, but is Rodgers setting himself up for a fall by saying such things? And where would these goals come from? Perhaps he should be talking about goal difference instead??

    • You are absolutely right Loki, I watched BR saying it myself on LFCTV. He might as well call it an extra 43 once we sell Suarez! :O. Aspas scored 12 and 7 assists compared to Downings 3 goals and 5 assists, so there is a substantial increase. This guy Mchtykriantyrianytian scored 25 goals, no idea how many assists. Surely that is a good start?! Plus, we expect Coutinho and Sturridge to nab a few over the season, I seriously think he means just that many more goals, not goal difference, of course, this is all based on Suarez staying........
