I can sort of understand it, We have seen less sucessful clubs form the past become major forces in football but we have not really seen a true force in English fooball lose its place in football like Liverpool have. Depending on the age of people they have either lived though the years where Liverpool was the team or would have just missed out on it and heard about it in great detail as it is recent history to them.
For people who lived though the Liverpool years its difficult to see how this happened and for those who its recent history for can not quite see how the Liverpool that have been told about tallys about with the club they see today
I think if in a few years Man Utd was in Liverpools place you would see just as many topics about it.
One thing I'd never give up on as an aspiration and a prime objective is to be challenging for the League Title.
Surely our history and what we've stood for is there for a reason. 22 Years, and in my reckoning, the closest we came was 2008/09.
We sat top of the pile on Christmas Day and that really was a magical feeling.
Every other time this season, we get a sucker punch, ala the example of Carragher's mistake. We seem to make life a lot harder for ourselves, and it's shown a lot notably in recent times.
I'll happily stand for patience, but what that has to be on the basis of the club going in the right direction.
Although signs are there, my problem is that some of those players on the books are NOT up to scratch - Jonjo Shelvey being one of them, and I genuinely feel it's time to bite the bullet and instill 2 brand new center halfs.
