One thing I can’t wait for is the season opener for LFC vs Stoke. It’s a game that might set a trend for the rest of the season:win and there’ll be great expectations and optimism, draw (or lose-not!) and maybe we might just start to re-prioritise.
For me,there are positives to be taken out from last season’s results from the post-winter transfer fixtures.Lost only three games(vs WBA,Soton and Man Utd in the league) in the league.That was a pointer of what to expect this coming season.Hoping Rodgers just sorts out defense in time though, since we also threw away good leads (vs Arsenal and Man City). As for the Suarez saga, no comment (please let it end soon!!).
As for the season expectation, I for-see a great cup run (just to see Gerrard,captain fantastic,lift a trophy) and a realistically attainable 5th spot finish.
Believe me,only if we take our chances shall we finish 4th,and that is a big ask for the team (but what the heck, that’s why we are LIVERPOOL FC,never written off!)
