    The Champions League - The final this year was contested by teams that last won the top flight championship in 1990 and 1961 respectively....

    Sorry, did you really put "life to have meaning" and " Merseyside" in the same sentence?
    I'm confused!

    He just means the rule change that permits teams playing in red to play one extra game.

    Talk to any Dipper and behind their bluster they know they are f*cked when it comes to winning a title whilst Pep is in charge at the Etihad , Rodri is a great signing , Angelino quality back up at left back and KDB will be a massive boost to the forthcoming season , maybe they should just concentrate on getting lucky in the european glamour cup , it s a competition full of bullshit and apt that the Dippers regard it as the pinnacle of football achievement . If you were playing football trophy top trumps a domestic treble shits all over a Champs league (whilst managing to lose four times on the way)

    Doesn’t look likely, although they will argue that their squad is in pretty decent shape after last season. Presumably they’re hoping that Oxlade-Chamberlain will get back to his best and that Brewster can step up to replace Sturridge as a squad player. They’ll definitely be our main challengers again, but there is a risk in treading water in this league.

    I was thinking about this, it's actually harder to qualify for the charity shield. Perhaps they should rename it the English super shield.

    It just seems so odd for them to have a season brimming with as much potential as their 18/19 campaign and not want to use it as a platform for more. They've not gone after Fekir again which I thought they would, they've not tried to activate any release clauses or buy any new midfielders, it all seems like a huge risk. The only player I've seen them linked with is Asensio. Their squad is looking quite thin in some areas, especially at full-back. If TAA or Robertson get injured they're pretty screwed as of right now.

    Not sure about that.

    Having lived and worked amongst them for most of the last 6 decades, their level of delusion, and what they actually believe to be true, is most remarkable. The average OBEAON believes that they are the greatest club ever, that this current team is the best club side in the world, and it is only a conspiracy on the level of the Kennedy assassination that prevents them winning the CL, PL, FA Cup, Carabao Cup, the Boat Race, the Grand National and the Eurovision Song Contest on an annual basis.

    The kitty might be empty. Also, they are comfortably the 2nd best team in the league so a Top2 finish is all but guaranteed so what would be the point of doing another £150mil with no guarantee of improvement?
