Anyway, should we be near the top 4? Ya, for sure.
The future looks good under Klopp for us. So yes, we def deserve to be in the top 3.
To challenge next season, depth of squad is needed. He needs strength in key areas. If the media reports are correct he's identified those key areas. According to this morning's Mirror, he's going all out to qualify for the CL to lure the likes of Lacazzette and Nabi Keita.
We haven't won enough games to be any further along -
Chelsea have 24 wins, - they have messed up 8 times and dropped points with 3 draws and 5 losses
Spurs have 21 wins, - they have messed up 11 times and dropped points with 8 draws and 3 losses
Whereas we only have 19 wins, 9 draws and 5 losses and we have the worst goals conceded total in the top 7
Going by how Klopp started us this season and then being knocked out of everything and having 1 game a week for last couple of months of the league (and our run in) then I think it will be a massive failure if we don't get CL. I know we worked into that position, but people here (as usual) were on about league titles etc. in November. I think we must get into the CL just so we can attract the players we NEED, so Klopp can really build a top squad.
Klopp needs to be clever this summer. The spine of the side needs improving in order to gain consistency. Fair enough we're consistent against the top 8 as we've lost none and beaten, Arsenal (twice), Chelsea, Everton (twice), Man City, Spurs and West Brom (twice). It's the other 12 where we need consistency.
However on a positive note, we've seen the importance of a defensive midfielder against the lesser sides particularly away against Stoke and West Brom. It was Lucas deployed there that actually helped us get those wins. Now if we can get an upgrade on Lucas, we won't be far off.
I know you are an ambitious supporter Ron, I just don't understand how you can say being 3rd is crap, from last season when we finished 8th.
Losses, draws and wins account for the points total, which determines the placing.
Which in turn determines the general demeanour of the forums.
Which in turn determines the number of deletions, infractions and banishments.
