    Leicester and City both have one more game and then they play each other... How do we want that to go?

    City win? (Hurts Leicester,who are our closest rivals on points)
    Leicester win? (Hurts City, who have the stronger team)
    Or a draw where they both take points off each other.

    Personally, I'd take a Leicester win as I don't think City could close a 17 point gap, and I don't consider Leicester to be a threat in the long run.

    City winning you would still give them a little hope, probably not much, they need us to Wipeout even then.. If they get their act together they could theoretically win every game left this season and that would mean we can only screw up so many times (and we will have injuries).

    Draw. I want teams to drop off ASAP. A nice clear run to the title. It’s about time we didn’t do drama.

    Once is premature Celebration

    Twice is boasting before the event

    Third time is just inviting trouble



    Fourth time is a fucking jinx




    Please don`t invoke the Gods of Jinx on us I fucking hate hunting down fellow LFC fans and opening the can of Whoopass on them and normally ends in sadness for us both :(

    Drama is the Liverpool way.

    It must be boring to support any other team.

    If you value your jawline and the sanctity of your dog's asshole, I'd advise you tread lightly here.

    Do it for Ron, beating the Foxes will probably be the best send off you can give him.

    Think Villa will take a point of Leicester today.

    What's the general consensus about Rodgers now?

    He did well for about 18 months here and had us playing some fantastic football. Then swept away the Scottish League, which everyone dismissed as cannon fodder, and now he's come back to the Premiership and is doing well with a Leicester side that were faltering beforehand.

    I think he'll push for a top job again in a few years, if he can sustain this level with Leicester, which was his biggest failing here, that he couldn't attract the players, keep the players (he's not alone there) and make a team consistently solid.

    Has he learned from his previous naivety defensively? Can he keep a team motivated for the longterm?

    You're new around here, but it's only fair to let you know that Skully is one of the hardest men on the internet. He has broken more jaws than a breakfast chef has cracked eggs.

    City draw with Leicester is our best outcome. Us beating Leicester is an even better one.
    The thought of Rodgers stroking Klopp's cheek if he beats us doesn't bear thinking about.

    He's a good "good times" manager. At least he was with us... He's nice and fluffy and huggy and can help a good vibe continue and does well when things are sunny and bright.

    What he showed with us was, little spine when things go south. He was too accepting and forgiving of defeat and too much of a soft guy to inspire fear and turn things around.

    He's done great so far with Leicester, can't fault him... He's not a bad manager though, never was.

    Let's see how he does if Leicester lose a few on the trot... See if things collapse or if he has the spine to turn things around now. The old Rodgers would have not been able to stop a poor run... Let's see if he has grown.

    He will be a top rate manager one day. He may even be good enough to manage us again one day... I'm holding judgement until I see him come out of hole.

    I'm hoping he does well enough to qualify for next season's Champions League, as we could all do with a bit of a laugh in our post league winners party hangover season.

    Proved so far to be an Excellent manager and has been fantastic on his return, Leicester are very lucky to have him and he has picked well. However, Europe is his Achilles heal and has yet to show he has a way to play on Europe first and secondly he can negotiate both massive competitions once qualified during the same seadon. Thirdly, being able to replace your best striker when the time comes right. If he can do that, then he can build his dynasty at Leicester or take any top job Europe. Not many top managers about, quite a few big clubs still looking which is unusual.
