    Did someone mention 76 points?

    I have nothing to say or do with that but shake my head right now...

    If perhaps the performances were getting better, at the very, very least, and still losing or drawing, perhaps someone could conjure up some rationalization behind that number, but having lost to Northampton and Blackpool back to back @ Anfield, and being punched in the mouth vs Everton, please tell me where another 70 points are coming from? We can't even score 2 goals anymore, let alone show signs of winning 3 points..

    Chelsea x 2 -?
    Spurs x 2-?
    Villa x 2-?
    @ Arsenal - ?
    United - ?
    City - ?

    Not only are both Wigan and West Brom on unbeaten streaks, they've both taken points, away from top 4 sides including a win and clean sheet. Things we've not even come remotely close to doing..

      I think its time to set out our stall & state our objectives loud & clear for the boardroom to hear .

      The managerial base line has to be 76 points & two semi final places .

      Players should be fined accordingly for failing to achieve those objectives & rewarded accordingly the more they exceed those objectives .

      We want or need no more spice boys , we want & need men with a pride in performance & will to win .

      On top of that the manager has to play football we enjoy watching with the quality of players we admire .

      We arent Malmo or Fulham & equally we shouldn't demand a league per season all I ask is that we are genuinely challenging in every competition we enter .

      For a club the size of Liverpool in reality 76 points MINIMUM isn't a lot for us fans to ask , therefore to avoid the managers job being placed under review by the board 76 points should be the line of safety not a specific league position .

      If that gets us top 4 well & good if it doesn't so be it .

      Some seasons we will exceed that mark & some seasons just scrape enough to achieve it because of cup runs but for me it is an honest , realistic & fair target .

      What say you ?

      Yay or ney ? "

      It doesn't say Hodgson is going to get anything let alone 76 points .

      Try reading it .

      • I can't believe that the apathy shown is going to change under Hodgson. I just wonder how long its going to take for the powers that be to recognise this.

      • Regardless of the points tally at the end of the season or the minimum needed, the targets were and should still be, and remain so until mathematically or realistically impossible:

        -Top 4 - Champions League.
        -Europa League Champions.
        -Final 4 - final of FA Cup.

        If Top 4 is not achieved, Europa Champions and FA Cup become absolute MUSTS, not targets. I could see Torres possibly staying if we narrowly miss Champions League as a sign of progress, but if we don't even come close he must lift Silverware this season (other than a fork or spoon) or we've seen the last of him in Red, and perhaps the same may be said for Captain Fantastic..

        Both painul thoughts to stomach.
