Tonight was desperately disappointing. But shit happens. In If you offered me 2nd at the start of the season with the football we'd played Id grab your hand off.
check this out in the telegraph. We are the 2nd highest points per game 2nd place team in the history of the PL.
This team has improved like mad on last season, Chelsea and Pool had no euro football. Klopp Guardiola and Mourinho came in. We are in it for the long haul. i f we get 2 and may be 1 point from the last three games we are 2nd.
Just need to go 1 better next season
Keep the faith.

Please.

Threads like this don't make you look rational and level-headed.

Did we bottle anything? Technically, no.

Do the players deserve praise tonight? Absolutely fucking not.

Save these threads for the final whistle in the Hull game.

We can all sit here wanking each other off about points per game, comparing us to other clubs and how good we've been over 2 seasons but fact of the matter is we end the season trophy-less again. We need to stop crowing on about how good we are until we have a trophy to show for it

Finishing 2nd is massive, just look what it meant for Arsenal last season.

Missing out on the FA cup was such a missed opportunity for us, that's hurt me more than us falling short in the title race.

Serious question- did you genuinely expect us to challenge for the title this season?

Losing to fucking Gent and missing out on challenging for a UEFA cup is an even a bigger one. But at least we can pretend that we challenged for the title like we did last year.

I agree with the sentiments but can we PLEASE stop going on about finishing 2nd until we have !!!! do we never learn as fans?

I will be shocked if pool and city don't get max points from there last 4 games, we have tough 3 matches, we need a win from one of them or a couple of draws or we could end up 4th!

We may have only lost 4 games all season, but anyone remember May last year where we had a similar run in..... please don't say we have 2nd yet because we don't!

We need a point to finish 2nd. Unless City/ Liverpool overturn a 20+ GD
