God I'm sick of bitter Everton fans and I'm a Utd supporter. Liverpool premiership failures? How many more points did you have than them at the end of the season? And I would say them beating Juventus, Chelsea and AC Milan makes them more deserving of being in the competition than Everton
That was immense! I feel sick! Absolutely fantastic though!
Lol - im delighted for Liverpool. Whoever was the initial poster? **** me - im a man utd fan but im over the moon - england teams always lose big games...and it makes a damn nice change - i feel like getting píssed
Obviously I'm an Everton fan. I dont quite see your logic as to why Liverpool haven't failed this season. We were relegation fodder, now we're in the Champions League qualifiers. Liverpool are Champions League champions, and they haven't even qualified for next seasons tournament. Plus, the amount of luck they've had in this tournament is unbelieveable, I'm not disreputing that they played very well, because they have done, but noone, not even the most stalwart Kopite can deny their almost guardian fortune. Personally, I believe the team to have played consistently throughout the season deserves the spot, and as for feats, I believe Evertons feat of 17th to 4th in one season to be much more impressive than Liverpool's 'play well in competitions and thats that' approach.
should be noted everton had one of the best teams around in the 80's but got shafted by the euro ban caused by some of liverpools finest on tour in belgium.
theres more to it than simple sour grapes about who was 4th and 5th this season.
Well done Liverpool. If they had that form in the league they'd have the premiership as well.
2 main points I want to make:
1. Many argue that even the World Cup winners must now qualify to defend their crown in the next tournament. However, this scenario is significantly different imo, because Liverpool have not actually had a chance to qualify yet, AS THE EUROPEAN CUP WINNERS. Sure, they've had the chance to qualify through the league, but they were not current winners then.
2. Some also say that Liverpool should not be allowed because the CL should be for the Champions of each league - but that just can't work - either we must eliminate all the Arsenals, ManUtds, Milans (!) etc from entering next season and only allow the league winners, or we squeeze in an extra spot for the European Champions.
Although we were barred from the competition due to Liverpool fans acting like animals, I don't think that should be the main focus of the incident. I say let that go and focus on the future - we are the new top dogs on Merseyside!
errr Liverpool are the champions of europe.... i'd say they're the top dogs in bloody Merseyside!
They should because Real did a few years ago when they finished 5th but won the cup...
