Liverpool thread


#994

And then I pointed out that it wasn’t as easy as people thought.
Chelsea, Liverpool, United, City all struggled with finishing 4th despite their obvious financial strengths.

We were consistently overachieving and finishing in Top 4.


#995

Yeah, and I said they got criticised for missing out when they shouldn’t have. So Where’s the hypocrisy?

You rabidly pro Wenger types have such a pathetic victim mentality, always crying about some sort of perceived injustice.


#996

When we were finishing top 4 Liverpool and Spurs were consistently shit and ridiculed for it. If they were a little bit better we wouldn’t have been in the top 4 as much because we never were much good either. That’s why we were criticized even though we were still in the top 4.


#997

We never were much good but somehow its justified to criticize us for overachieving


#998

It isn’t about them not being criticized.
It’s about us being criticized for finishing top 4


#999

You misunderstand what overachieving is. We have the resources and the measures of a club that shouldn’t be content with top 4. If top 4 is all we get, a lot of times barely scraped, that is a lot closer to underachieving than overachieving.


#1000

How was us coming 4th overachieving ? Wasn’t it just par for the course ?


#1001

So we return to the point that Craigie explained this and you just not wanting to hear it.


#1002

Lowest net spend in league.
Infact negative net spend


#1003

So your saying we should get relegated ? Every manager should just keep the money in the bank under that logic and then they are bound to overachieve.


#1004

by logic of ‘on-par’, we should.

But by my logic, we overachieved.


#1005

How well is Klopp going then ? Making the CL final on his net spend…


#1006

Game. Set. Match.


#1007

How? I like Kloop


#1008

Your logic is rubbish. Spending on wages is a far more relevant measure than net transfer spend, and we were pretty consistently in the top four for amount spent on wages.

We finished where we should have finished


#1009

That is just hindsight


#1010

That’s convenient


#1011

Yet criticized


#1012

Nonsense. I and many others have been criticising the club/Wenger for years about only doing the bare minimum/not doing all they could to achieve.


#1013

Hindisght still.
You have no way of knowing whether they aimed to achieve more or just played for bare minimum.

You are just interpretating.
