'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Scousers Know What's At Stake This Season

This season could be the one where we finally put right one of the most misleading things of English football. This could be the year when we finally reach the place that should be ours since long.

Winning the league three times in a row is difficult as hell: battle fatigue, complacency, the increased hunger of the opposition - but now here is the chance to rewrite history.

Liverpool have been the the record holder for most league titles for so long that it looks set in stone - but it isn't as we are now only one triumph away. And the current squad looks more than capable of achieving that 18th league title.

I bet every Scouser knows this and though they might not fret over it in public, deep down all fear that we catch up with them. Beating them almost every time we met in recent seasons confirmed that they are a million miles away from being title challengers and that's still true.

Hopefully, we'll demonstrate this quite cruelly on a Saturday but you can never know. The really big things are not at stake this time as it's too early. Yet every single scouser from the red side of the city should be aware that we are closing in and I suggest that as they have no realistic chance of winning the title, they should support Chelsea passionately this season.

Of course this only shows to highlight how far they are away: they have to rely on another team to prevent us equalling their own record. But it should give us a reason to laugh and inspire the team as well: what a chance to write history!

Yes, it is a fantastic chance, and I believe we will do it soon, if not this coming season. But let's not be too arrogant just yet - after all, we've looked a little less than assured this season (true, Liverpool have been lucky though) and the game could go either way.

Even this early though, it is a big game for both sides. If we win, we go level on points with Liverpool WITH a game in hand, and would leapfrog them in the table due to goal difference. If, dare I suggest, we lose, however, we will be six points behind, albeit with a game in hand. Not impossible, but not an ideal place to be in...
