    4 wins Ray and we should be in. I think that extra day will help us. I don't see United getting 12 from 12.

    If Klopp manages to get us through with all what happened this season and a squad as thin as a paper
    It would be scary just to imagine how good can we become next season.

    For now we still have 3 matches to play , as Klopp said positive pressure , lets do this .

    If we qualify for Champions League this season, even if we have a great summer we will struggle next season to qualify again. Most likely we'll see the results the season after.

    Not if we buy well and reinforce , we will have money to spend. If we do qualify at the end then there is no way Klopp will leave gaps in the squad . It would be so foolish and i cant see it happening

    Its clear he took a gamble this year , we all know this

    It won't matter if we sign 6 top players and massively improve. Those signings will take time to gel and with Champions League football next year it will be hard. I guarantee City will splash, United will, Chelsea will, Arsenal will and they'll all invest heavily as well.

    It'll be tough next season if we sign 6 players and then have Champions League even if they're all successful signings. That's not a problem we could easily win the title season after, maybe we can push for title next season but conditions will be tougher next season even if squad is much better.

    Particularly as, if we make CL we'll be third seeds at best - if you're serious about trying to get out of that group you can't really afford to field much less than your best available XI almost every game.

    Coupling that with staying in contention at the top end of the Prem is no small challenge - as you say, it may well take us another 12 months to really get the squad in a position to cope. Even if our new summer signings take only 2-3 months to settle in it may be too late to keep us involved on both fronts.

    This trimming and then replenishing of our squad as we alternate between seasons in and out of Europe is not helping - we need, at the very least, to be in Europe every season and have a squad built to compete over a 60 game season.

    Even that may be a challenge with Everton improving - they could well be in a position to capitalise if one of the top 6 has a difficult season.

    Definitely. If we get CL there's possibility we sign well but takes a year to gel. Tough CL group followed by Prem games can be done and we could fly all season but there's a possibility whilst new players adjust we'll hit some bumps

    We won 4-0 yesterday and still have our own destiny in our hands, that's a massive positive until Sunday.

    Most supporters of LFC would consider a top 4 spot a successful season all we have to do is match Arsenal's result and we get top 4

    POSITIVES

    We have home advantage against a poor team

    Danny is back and looks sharp

    Arsenal have the tougher fixture

    We will have to keep our nerve it willbe a scary day but all will cone good
    POSITIVITY IS THE KEY

    We'll end up exactly where we deserve to be, given our up/down season.

    Let's hope that in the end we deserve European Football.

    The season's over and for one of the few times this decade, I don't have to scroll down my phone to see our position in the table.

    Tence but thankfully it all came good
    The Kop was a lot better but you could feel the tension after Arsenal scored first 40 odd minutes were a nerve wrecking blur
    Second goal was the realease
    HAPPY DAYS

    Yes, a worthy end to a season that was full of triumph and desperation. A short breather after this first decent step upward, and then into the hard work to come!
