What would you class as a success?

I was only ever interested this season in top silverware. We will still have three seasons of Klopp's contract left after this one to deliver something if we can't get over the line this year. Personally, I believe we can still get stronger relative to the Mancs without spending bigger money than City and United so 2nd this season could hardly see us in a better position in terms of our projected path.

For me this year must be "The year". We have a great team now, and the best manager in PL :well done: (maybe we need one or two new players). And we have a great start this season. So the trophy must come home!!

In CL everything can happen, only great great team still there. But if we are lucky, and all the players still 100% fit, you'll never know.... Let's start with the red bastad from Germany.

Sorry for my poor English.

If we do land the title then is it possible to review last season as a success as the CL run helped confidence and belief in the players that they can achieve something. Being runners up in the CL was failure but may have had a bearing in the likes of Alisson and Fabinho signing for us.
So if we win the league this season I'd say the last 2/3 season of progress have all been part of the project and therefore successful despite not winning silverware in those previous seasons.
Fuck the battle, lets win the War.

Winning the PL would give us that psychological click that will push us on for for more success. I'm not arsed about the CL if it means we lose out on the Prem. Winning the league has to be the priority and I think would mean so much more to Liverpool fans. There seems to be a lot more focus on City by the media and pundits at the moment and that suits me. We just take it a game at a time and let everybody else including Man Utd fans worship Pep. All I hear is Liverpool will slip up, but you have to look at that game against Palace, we beat them after getting battered at times, we kept on coming back. It was like watching a good boxing match, now that's a game City lost at the Etihad. Pep does not like pressure when its against him. Last season we would have lost that game but with the additions we've made and the focus our players have I think that is a massive turning point in our fight for the league. We have to be absolutely f**king ruthless now though.

The problem I have with this ‘only trophies mean success’ thing is that it judges the club on factors completely out of their control.

So if Liverpool get 95 points - a total that would win the league in the vast majority of seasons, and City get 96 there is nothing that LFC can do about that.

You don’t judge your success on things you can’t control, and I doubt ‘win the league’ is anyone at the club’s objective.

So readjusted for the blistering start we’ve had, 95 points and a deep run in the CL. That would be success in my opinion.

When you finish first in any sport it is because you have taken control. It is wrong to say that there are factors out of our control. If we had taken 6 points off City that would be taking control....every time someone or some team finishes ahead of you, you can't say it was because of factors beyond your control.

You may call yet another season without a trophy a success but sorry I can't. It may be an enjoyable season but not a successful one.

Yep, utter nonsense in my opinion.
If City get 96 points, was it out of our control to get 97 points, or was it someone else's fault we didn't?

95 points would be a massive improvement, and the season has been very entertaining and enjoyable. Nothing more.

A successful season depends on the realistic goal for the season depending on the team. So for a midtable team, winning any trophy would be deemed successful. For us we have to be winning a major trophy. If we were to get top 4 and the Champions league then it's successful, in my opinion. If we won the league then it's obviously successful.

If we stayed in the league cup, won it, then came 4th then I wouldn't deem it successful. We are bigger than that and in the position we are in, we should be winning the league or the Champions league.
