he might as well leave now then and spare us all his serious attitude problem.
Thing is though you get nowt, financially, for winning the cups. The owner spent a lot of money, money he will have expected to start recouping through champions league revenue. The board will not be happy at all with liverpools performance this season as they look a long way off a top 4 team.
I assume the fans will be happy - I would be overjoyed. However there will still be a number of Liverpool who want to see their side lining up against Europes top sides and these cup wins wont do that so again, a section of fans will also be disappointed.
weren't they very unlucky in all their games like? New one that.
The phrase dropped points is often used in relation to Sunderland. If we have a run of winnable games and only take a few draws the phrase dropped points is always used.
But only twenty-nine away from home.
Fortunately for them they probably dont have a really high wages/candles bill and overpriced players on long contracts.
You're spot on - but as I say, this just reinforces how football has got its priorities massively wrong.
I know money has always been a factor, but never to the extent it is now. Sad state of affairs when winning the FA Cup is barely seen as an achievement.
You are clearly missing my point.
This is Pity City we're talking about and their rather large sense of entitlement.
I think people are forgetting Liverpool will not beat Chelsea on Saturday
That is exactly what I mean. It's ridiculous that any team feels entitled to any points whether it's Liverpool, Sunderland or Dover Athletic.
You see it on here at times too and it's pathetic in my opinion.
I think it's largely driven by the media.
You're taking it too literally.
"Dropped points" is just a way of defining someone's home/away form as opposed to saying they've "won three, drew six, lost five" or whatever
And, funniest of all, the Cup runs will probably keep the King in place for next season.
Exactly, anyone not switch positions with them in a heartbeat?
That puts it into perspective.
So liverpool get boo's at the final whistle and King Kenny blames the team for not perfoming.
Take at look at yourself KK for putting out that team and sacrificing the points.
Dropped points discussion, can two teams drop points in the same game, last Sat I think Sunderland may have dropped points yet Bolton believe that they dropped points, and who is picking up these dropped points
Whatever happend to liverpool?
They used to be "everyones second team" in the past. Now everyone wants to see them fail.
It's not a strange question at all. If football is all about winning things (as you say) and Sunderland don't win anything (no major trophies in almost 40 years), then according to your logic Sunderland AFC is pointless.
I think it's about a lot more than winning things and I'm happy with this outlook because I don't think Sunderland are likely to win anything significant in my life time.
You've took my answer and bent it to suite your argument. I said finishing higher up in the premier league should never be a replacement for winning trophies.
