There are a lot of things to factor in as well when taking our points total into consideration. We’ve already equalled Citoil’s points total for 13/14. Should we equal their points tallies for the last two season’s were they as far ahead of second place on points as we are likely to be? In 13/14 and last season they won the league by one point each time. Just googled that they won in 17/18 (their “Centurians” season they won the league by nine points. We’ve had the league sewn up fo a couple of weeks now. Should we achieve 100 points it will be a fantastic demonstration of professionalism to achieve that total without having another team pushing us along.

Our 97 points last season are pushing us along. When they all sat down last August and set the points tally they were aiming for they put it higher than 97 for sure. I'm not saying 6 points from here will feel great...but let's say they equal City's 100 points, 2021-22 goals are going to be pretty clear.

Interesting to note that- despite our general improvement over the last few seasons- it’s the same three away games, against our (supposedly) biggest rivals, that keep giving us problems.

Although Manchester City are obviously a good team, Everton and Manchester United are not our equals in pure quality terms. Is our continued mediocre record against these sides due to dubious officiating or down to Klopp being more cautious in these big games?

Discuss.
No, make me.

You make a very fair point. I did have a look at 17/18 season and they won it by 19 points, not 9 - as that would have meant 2nd place got 91 points. I dont think many, if any, 2nd place teams have got to over 90 points. Obviously just us.

Hopefully we will get out of the 90's points this season!

I reckon Jurgen just showed them this thread from last season - he probably thought it was the real Robbie Fowlers left peg that was in charge of it all, rather than our very own @Fowler's Left Peg .....

Yes I put the title win and performance all down to this thread. Jurgen is just there as part of his contract obligation.

So you would expect at Anfield we can overcome Burnley, Newcastle should be on the beach last game and won't put up too much of a fight.

Where is the best chance of the other 3 points to get the record

Arsenal Away or Chelsea at home.

Both games on current form could quite easily be a draw or loss with the way we are playing.

Record points total is far from certain for me despite what some pundits are saying
We play Arsenal 3 days before their FA Cup semi so I'd be very surprised if they viewed our game as important. I think they'll rest some and the ones who do play won't want to get injured.
Chelsea game is 3 days after their semi so I'd imagine they'll go full strength in that then rotate a bit for us. Couldn't have fallen any better for us really.
Anyway we need to beat Burnley first which won't be easy.

Well didn't see that coming, fair play to Burnley, had that tagged as our easiest of the 3 games remaining, purely because it was Anfield, but I think the advantage of the stadium lies with the fans.

100% home wins record gone.

Still on for points and wins record but it will be tough now 3 wins required, think we might just fall short, hope i'm wrong.

That 16/17 Chelsea title (under Conte) is a bit of a head scratcher. Who would've said that they'd go to 90+ points.

Not too bothered if we don't break the record. We were/are amazing enough this season. My next wish is for us to be more or less at the same level next season (that was always going to be a factor once we landed #19, but we're in such a good place, much better than the last few times we came close second) and see where it takes us.

Transition year for the league. Pep's first season at Shiteh, Arsenal in free-fall, Spurs doing a Spursy, and Klopp finding his rhythm. Also, it took the entire season for the league to figure out Conte's 3-4-3. Lightning in a bottle, innit?

Yeah, but Conte initially started with a 4 at the back system. Took them almost two months for him to move to his favourite 3 at the back (Hull away I think it was the first time they flipped). Then they went on a crazy run.

Yup, 100 points record remains out of reach now. Wins against Chelsea and Newcastle could still bring us up to 99 points, which would be fantastic to be fair. But will the players play to their potential, or only at 80% like yesterday? No-one can know, and I bet that even Klopp doesn't know.

The players will think they are going to give it their all but they can't really. That's not how psychology works, if it was that easy to control our own emotions and motivations then a lot of things would be a lot easier in life.

It's official now: our current team is better than the best ever Mourinho team at Chelsea. This is no small feat, because that was a really good team.

But we are even better, and have done it twice in a row now. :giggle:

(like FSP, I feel as if 96 points is a very fitting amount for this season. I won't begrudge the players a defeat against Newcastle if it happens.)

Since the start of the last season we have accumulated 193 points.For comparison the other Top 6 teams have accumulated 176 points ( Man City),135 points ( Chelsea),129 points ( United),128 points ( Spurs) and Arsenal have 123 points.And the point gap between us and all of the other Top 6 teams is bigger this season compared to the last one.This season we are finishing 30+ points ahead of everyone except Man City.

I'm not bothered how the final game goes but can't begin to describe how special a moment of fate it was that we lifted the trophy whilst having 96 points. That's been done and if we now finish the league on 97 or 99 points it doesn't really matter. The special moment happened, they were there for that, thats what mattered. Finishing on 99 points, second most successful league finish wouldn't be a bad end to the season.

67/ 70 points is going to be enough for top 4. We did that in gameweek 23/24, that is 14-15 games before the end of season, 15 games before United/ Chelsea. Almost half of the games before them!

Putting us or our front three or our manager or our season in comparison with anything out there is futile honestly!

Well we are done for another season lads and lasses, what a ride it's been. Been great sharing it with you. Good to see the boys fell away at the end, they must have realised how depressing this thread would have been next season trying to match a perfect season so gave us some draws and defeats to keep it alive.

I have updated all the tables for some light reading once you have all sobered up.

Enjoy the off season, see you In September

Just noticed that 7 of United's title wins are sub 85 points and four of those maxed out with 80! Those teams would have been shat upon from a dizzy height if they had been in this league since Klopp, Conte and Guardiola came along. Ninety and beyond for the past 4 seasons running.
