While it's true that Liverpool aren't playing well (by their standards), I'm afraid it's the kind of "not well" where they still win 95% of their games, and simply never lose.
They are also the experts at going behind & coming back to win. Something we struggle with for some reason (partly...
I think it's the enormity of what it would mean to hand Liverpool the Quadruple, that makes it so stressful. (Shudders uncontrollably).

You do get some odd last days ... Blackburn won their title despite losing on the last day (second-placed Utd couldn't win either v West Ham) ... and Villa won the title in 1981 despite losing on the last day - second-placed Ipswich also lost (to Middlesbrough).

Comparing them with Villa: Villa beat them 4-0 in March.
Newcastle, Palace & Watford all won at Southampton in the past couple of months.
Ah yes; George Reynolds ... an ex bare-knuckle fighter & convicted safe-cracker.

We've spent all season trying to win the league with no striker/ natural goalscorer.
Now we're having to do it with no defence.
Not sure our goalie really makes any saves either.
Yep, I'm definitely starting to crack under the pressure. Please beat West Ham, City, so I can have a...
