    If we win the league again next season we will get more praise. For some reason winning one isn't enough. Pep is building a team that can do that and deliver the CL and then we will be regarded as one of the best European sides of all time.

    It is all part of a debate. Real were not an amazing side this season but won their third CL in a row which is an incredible achievement in this day and age.

    Not read all the thread but did Arsenal win the league the following year after the Invincibles year ? I don't think they did and they are a barometer of a great team . What we did won't be beaten for many a year if ever .. so yea wr are the greatest premier team ever .

    nope - chelsea got their first PL title the year after, with them being unbeaten that entire season but for one game... at the Etihad with Anelka scoring a penalty to beat them 1-0

    Statistically the best Liverpool side was 1978-79 (Pre Grobbelaar but not Souness) at 3 points for a win they get 98 points but at 2 points for a win they get 68 points (as we would at 2 points for a win) but having played 4 less games less we have a points percentage of 87.72% compared with Liverpool's 80.05%.

    BTW what are you going to do about the pass back rule in the match up game?

    We can cement our standing by defending the title and the argument ends.

    Then they will move the goalposts and say it’s not a great team until.........

    Plus back in the day, if you were a good side all you had to do was get a lead and pass it back to your goalkeeper for the rest of the game.
