1-1 is a good result. We fought hard and I can't really complain. We need Koscielny back. And Ozil. And Ramsey. And Wilshere. And Walcott.

Giroud needs a break, he's tired. He's not the fastest guy in the world when he's 100%. I'd like to see Sanogo given a run as a starter, I'm not sure he has the fitness to go 90 minutes though. Bendtner could spell him if he's not busy rubbing his gentleman's region on a taxi. Wenger may have had enough of his crap though.

Any result with points is a good result when you have allowed 17 goals in the previous 3 games Bobby.

Sherwood is looking like those hot shot college coaches who move up to the NBA and get thumped. These aren't kids.

I think Liverpool's got this. Home games against City and Chelsea are tough, but at least they're at Anfield. Their away games are manageable against West Ham, Norwich, and Palace. Final fixture is Newcastle at Anfield. They're going to crush them if they can take the title with a win.

^^^^Martin Skrtel and Shifty Agger should have been the dominant back 2 in the EPL by now.

Should have.

The fans want a CB who will shut up and get the job done. Someone who will instill fear in the eyes of the opposing forwards. Like Sol Campbell. Liverpool's defense lacks that sort of player and is soft. That includes Martin Skrtel. And the fans know it.

Suarez is like a EXPLETIVE REMOVED dog, what a player.
If he had not missed the first 10 games of the season, he would have broken several records:

a. most goals in a single EPL season (42 games) - Andy Cole and Allan Shearer - 34
b. most goals in a single calendar year, in the EPL - Allan Shearer - 36
c. most goals in a single EPL season (34 games) - Allan Shearer - 31

I do not think that he can reproduce this form next season.

Still very much reckon City are favorites, but the Everton - City clash on matchday 37 could have a significantly huge bearing on the title race. Everton fighting for that lucrative 4th spot with Arsenal makes it all the more intriguing.

Everton think they can sneak past Arsenal.

That will never happen. And they certainly can't beat Man City. A draw is the best they can produce. Even then, Man City's goal differential is absurd and will help them win any and all tie-breakers.

Everton have beaten City at Goodison the last 4 times.

Not sure Pelligrini has the balls to finish it off. Would still be surprised not to see Chelsea win it. I think Liverpool will come close but tail off at the end.

The last time Liverpool were in this position was 2009 during the years or Fernando Torres and Xabi Alonso. And we dropped vital points at the end of the season.

Personally, I want to see an improvement on defense and more depth in the midfield. Jordan Henderson is not there yet and we need the Henderson/Lucas combination to be stellar over the remainder of the season.

I think that Lucas will not be back at Anfield next season. This is likely to be his last chance in the EPL.
