Paranoia: Fulham Into Final, Liverpool Crash Out!

Congratulations to Fulham, who beat Hamburg 2-1 and go into the Europa League Final. Commiserations to Liverpool who go out on the away goals rule against Atletico Madrid.

Now that Liverpool's season is effectively over those who support the so-called mighty Reds will be depressed, even suicidal. No doubt they will want a LFC head to roll but I'm afraid it's too late. The sea of change has begun.

Liverpool FC will no doubt qualify for next seasons Europa League competition but they can thank Portsmouth for that. Why, well the south-coast team qualified simply by reaching the FA Cup Final, but due to their current financial position their European expedition has been blocked, which leaves the club who finishes seventh in the Premier League entry into the competition.

The way it stands, Liverpool will more than likely finish in the final qualifying place but by a whisker. Lucky or what?

Manchester City, Aston Villa and Tottenham on the other hand are the so-called new kids on the block. The aforementioned clubs have all but qualified for next seasons European competitions however, no one knows whether it will be Champions League football or otherwise.

The tide has turned and no doubt Liverpool will re-emerge as a future contender for various cup competitions, but for now the decline is in perpetual motion.


Although the following video clip is nearly 30-years-old the lyrics are as fresh and relevant as they once were. Liverpool FC = Paranoia, or in this case, Paranoimia - surely not!

Ha ha - what a joke? "the sea of change has begun" sure whatever you say. We had one bad season but your Sh!ty team still sucks after spending 130 million, two coachesí in one season, 4 new strikers and a couple of overpriced defenders. Maybe Spurs and Villa have improved but your sorry lot is pouring money on the pitch and still canít manage to play half decent football. And let me remind you that even at our lowest point players all across Europe keep saying they are proud to be linked with us, you can't convince any good player to WANT to play for you and even the overpriced ones you got want out - Adebayor = still wearing Arsenal gear abroad, Robinho = would rather play in Brazil then in a City shirt. Tevez = starting to make noise about not being happy there. If the sea is turning itís not in your favor.

landos 'klutching at straws' is good. From one of the postings I'd hazard a guess that klutch is a septic so maybe klutz would be more appropriate ? Like tudor and many others I'll be trying to enter a state of zen or maybe even short term estivation to hide from the heat for about 10 days. wake me up or ring the little cymbal on my pinky when we're in the CL, come on you Blues ! oh and a final tick-tock LGHU of the season for good luck. apologies in advance to anyone in block 237 unfortunate enough to be near me on Saturday , I may become quite emotional and irrational.

Great post tublu. I like you and millions of other Blues will be hitting blanket cove for the next four months should we fail to make the Champions League stage. PS - blanket cove means i'll do what a bear does in the winter months.

The tide has turned Klutch, get used to being the next Leeds Utd. Very well done to Fulham, thought the Aussie keeper had let the Germans back in, but you fought back hard and did just enough, may have a harder time in the Final, but you are there on merir.

Well done to Fulham, a huge achievement considering the size of your squad. Hope you win it, it will be well deserved. The scousers have had a nightmare, can't see them getting back into contention for the top 4 any time soon without major investment, perhaps if the yanks decide to sell? Oh well, I just take heart from the fact that if it can happen to Liverpool, then it can almost certainly happen to the rags, and their fall from grace will be even greater to watch!

Tudor - HEY BUDDY where you at?? "The sea of change has begun" TEVEZ wants out, your only good player wants out. Robinho didn't want to be there and now Tevez wants out, seems like money canít even keep your players happy. As much as you City fans will deny it, I KNOW that itís killing you inside to hear this news.

Congrats Fulham and good luck for the final. Klutch - you really have it bad mate. Look at last season's table and this season's and look at the progress City have made in one season, the tide is most definitely turning, get used to it.

Klutch - you are obviously blinded by jealousy or rage, or both, I digress.

Klutch you turd, we'll get rid of Tevez and replace him, simple. Please stop coming on here with expressions such as "suck" and "where you at". I'm informed by an American colleague of good standing that such terms are only spoken by children and older people who should really grow up.

PS....if Roy Hodgson doesn't get manager of the season then the PL is corrupt. He's a true gentleman and one hell of a coach.
