Last week of April 2012.. where do we see our Reds?
Some of those answers are dicey while some of those answers are cast in stone.
Whether we’d be playing semi-finals of Champions/Europa League is dependent on how we do in the next 4 fixtures (most of me believes that if we win the next 4 we would feature in one of those two competitions).
What’s cast in stone is that we would be right up there in the PL table. We would be not more than one win away from clinching the title. We would have humbled a lot of other so called ‘football teams’ but actually pretenders who think they can upstage us. We would be the team to beat. We would have at least 2 players in the top-5 goal scorers of the season. We would have the best GD. We would have the most expensive team in the league. We would have the most ferocious attack partnership, the fastest bloody wingers, the most creative midfield with the most unbelievable diagonal passes and the most cunning defense. We would not be more than a game or two away from getting back to our f**king perch.
We would be the club that footballers would strive to play for. Terms like ‘qualification for Europe’ would not apply to us. EA Sports would be about to launch their FIFA 13 game with our Reds as the strongest team in their software. We would no more have to bear competing with the likes of Spurs and City. We’d have a close to 100% win record at Anfield.
Europe or no Europe, I personally can’t wait for the next season. Though most of this post is rhetorical, I just want to share my premonitions with all of you so that a year down the line I could proudly claim – ‘I told you so!”. I’d have another couple of inches added to my chest size when I watch the Reds next season sitting in a multiple supporter bar. I’d love to go to a person wearing another shirt and commiserate him ‘Good game, sorry you had to face Liverpool today’. By June 2012, I’d be placing orders on store.liverpoolfc.tv for the new home shirt with golden Premier League patches!!
