A wise man once said "Liverpool FC exists to win trophies".
Dont get me wrong, I want to be higher up the league and the long term goal is to end up back on top of it, its not bloody easy mind! This is a long term and progressive project. If the plan was to go all out to win the league instantly then the owners would have blown everything on established players at the peak of their careers, problem is, what do you do in 3 years time with your £150k per week 32 yr olds? IF they win it at all.
We have gone a different way about it, somewhere in the middle of what Arsenal do and what Man City do, the big money has been spent on players who will be at their peaks in 4-5 years, not this season, sadly probably not even next. I think the general consensus of Rafas reign was 'thanks for the trophies and the memories, for re establishing us (temporarily) at the top in Europe but its time to say goodbye', and thats what happened. We hvent won a trophy for 6 years and now we have a fresh one on the shelf. If we get another this season then any fool can see its massive progress.
Once that is done and dusted the players can go away for the summer knowing they are winners but needing to find more consistency in the league. We will drop a couple and pick a couple up and go again next year and I would comfortably bet anybody that we finish with more points next season, even if we signed nobody!
We could finish with more points next year, but still be 7th. We finished with more points last season than we probably will this season.
If we dont' finish 6th next season my view is that Kenny would needs to step down.
I can't believe I'm saying I'd be happy with 6th. What have we come to??

Actually side, if we don't finish 4th at least next season then Kenny needs to step down. I still wouldn't be happy with 4th obviously, but would accept CL.
I can't believe that you think 6th would be acceptable! Each to their own I suppose.....
