    Surprised that Swansea have suddenly turned it on tbh..
    That's what I was thinking, they looked dead certain for relegation for most of this season and then suddenly Ayew has regained the good form he had at the start of the season. Makes you wonder if they'll still want Brendan in the summer, unless Guidolin has confirmed that he'll be leaving?

    I always thought they looked just about safe with enough cushion away from relegation but those last 2 wins have propelled them up the table. Can they finish with a hattrick of impressive wins (Liverpool, West Ham with Man City to play)?

    Guidolin hasn't done a fantastic job per say so maybe they will want a change? Not sure how it's been all through the season or if they look improved under him. Wonder if Allen will go back to Swansea this summer.

    He's (eventually) steadied the ship and potentially could finish as high as 11th/12th. Garry Monk got the job full time after he achieved that in the half season he had as caretaker boss. I guess they could easily slip into the habit that Sunderland got into if they extended Guidolin's contract.
    I wouldn't mind Allen staying to be honest, he looks a different player under Klopp (and since he grew his hair and beard) and is more effective on the ball. Though I wouldn't be up in arms if he left as he's replaceable and there are still no talks of a new contract. Maybe Klopp will wait and see if decent offers come in for him after the Euro's.

    Guidolin has done really well, to be honest. The thing that has really undermined Swansea this season has been a lack of goals from their front men. They are too reliant on set-pieces, especially from Sigurdsson. I think Paloschi will be a really good signing when he is given a full pre-season and given time to bed in.

    I think Guidolin will leave, but he has done really well adapting to the PL when many a coach of similar reputation in the past - Magath and Mel - have struggled.

    Agree with this, West Brom under Pepe Mel were really poor and deserved to be relegated, can't believe they sacked Steve Clarke for him.
    Swansea were foolish to think Gomis would fill Bony's shoes, he had a massive goal drought in the middle third of the season and Paloschi and Barrow have been settling in to the PL. Plenty of decent strikers (for Swansea) available in the summer though and they'll have the money to spend (from their prospective new shareholders, TV deal, Bony and Shelvey transfer fee).

    To be honest, they'd do a lot worse than going after somebody like Jordan Rhodes. Granted, they may struggle to prize him away from Middlesbrough considering he's new there and they are PL-bound, but he's the type of player they need.

    I'm shocked at how old Gomis is. He's not going to get any better.

    Real shame about Ward.

    By the way, the club is urging fans without tickets not to travel to Basel - despite Klopp's comments a few days ago: http://www.liverpoolfc.com/news/tick...an-information

    Soton's victory has made things difficult.

    If we win both our games in hand we can go 1 point ahead of them with a similar GD, however it's looking increasingly likely that we're either gonna have CL or nothing next season.

    Hey, anyone else in the same boat here?
    My boyfriend is going to see liverpool for the first time on Sunday in west brom and he's bummed out because he won't be seeing the "proper" team, but at the same time, he's super pumped for the fact that they'll be playing a more important match. He's super excited though. Who else is going?

    If we aren't in europe next season then it means the team can focus on winning the league like the 13-14 season. Obviously the youngsters will get less of a look in but it's not too bad all things considered.
