    The race for 4th - LFC v EFC

    Abu, can't really disagree with your predictions, as thy look mainly realistic. Hope we can pick up at least a point at OT, but think its alos quite possible for us to loose silly points at home against what should be lesser opponents.

    Not sure I agree that CL and FA cup actually handicap us. Yes if Rafa over rotates to keep the squad fresh for cup games its going to hurt, but don't see a lot of resting rotation being need now we get to the tail end here.

    My biggest worry is our lack of confidence, which is causing a good sqaud to perform below its potential. If we are getting the results in the cup, think it will translate into more confidence that will help us in the league. Biggest if's in my mind, are can Torres stay healthy to provide some goals, and or can someone else please put it in the back of the neck. Think its doubtull many teams can beat us if we play to our potential, but if we don't score we don't win. Simple as that.

    • I can't see either side getting into the 70's pointswise. Abu I think you've been overly optimistic on both counts!!!

      • to acheive 73 points your need to win 10 out of the 13 games left. that asking alot. my guess is your get 67 points this season, not enough to secure 4th spot. taking into consideration that you have to play ,arsenal, man utd and spurs away. those 3 games could only net you 2 points. leaving 10 games to win outright for 4th spot. its going to be tough this season for that 4th place, if everton go on a winning spree. we will no more in the next 5 games, but if your 6th at that stage, thats it i reckon. you get 6 or 7 points behind everton, that be will it.
