I don't think it will be comfortable like last season but i think we have a good chance of getting around 12th place.
Boro is an interesting one. It looks like your success was all down to McClaren and when he went the whole club sank like a stone. I did read a few things about your new boss, formerly on the coaching staff of Real Madrid no less. I expect to see a lot of boring backwards passes next season at the Riverside Do you think you can make it to the play-offs this year?
At first I saw Lambert, Lallana and Shaw leave and I was like. Ok that is the maximium, that is enough. I was disappointed with the three leaving; but in each case it was a legitimate move. Lambert moved to his boyhood club (can't deny him that). Lallana and Shaw brought in huge money. Although I do hate Adam Lallana for a few things he said when he joined Liverpool like:
AL: “Last season, deep down, I was thinking: hopefully one day I'll be able to play in that team. That dream is reality now.” #LallanaLFC
I predict Lambert/Shaw will get a fully positive reception next season. Lallana will be more mixed. Dusan Tadic and Pelle both appear to be quite good replacements.
When Lovren threw his toys out of the pram I got another pang of disappointment.
I'm at the stage where i am beyond grief. I just accept it now. When I saw Morgan and Rodriguez on the verge of joining Spurs I laughed (probably bitterly).
I'm just hoping we hang onto our players and that we stay up next season.
