@SDGooner - is the bar set low for Arsenal? Arsenal’s expectations is completely different story and I don’t really want to get into it on here cause it got nothing to do with looking a Liverpool.
I don’t think they’re previous finishes has much baring on the context of this current season. They’ve raised the bar this season and should be considered title challengers.
How can you say I’m overestimating Liverpool when they’re leaders of the top 6 H2H table? Best attacking record in the league, same losses as Chelsea. There’s obviously alot of quality in the side if they’re getting consistent reults against the best sides in the league if anything you’re underrating the Liverpool in an attempt to cover Klopp’s failings against lesser opposition where the holes in his management become more apparent.
@CunningLinguist - We’re not talking about other coaches are we? We’re specifically about Liverpool and Klopp. I see no need to expand the discussion to other managers and their respective performances.
The whole wage bill argument is no real indication of anything either. It’s just another weak excuse for Klopp. I don’t think people realise how important the fact that Liverpool are leaders of the top 6 H2H table is, I’ve said like 3 time now because it’s very valid. It shows that despite the wage differences they have consistently remained competitive against the very best in the league and it doesn’t inhibit them. Their issues have come against smaller teams where Liverpool pay the higher wages than they do and have more quality.
You underrate the quality of the squad look above for facts as to why this Liverpool side is quality. No one has really answered the point about Liverpool struggles against smaller opposition either.
