    Brian, your usual quality post my friend.

    Once City get over their injuries and providing they can keep everyone fit I think there’s every chance of them having a very strong second half of the season whether that will be enough this season to win the PL is open to conjecture.

    I think it will all depend on how close City can remain to Liverpool going into January and how Liverpool cope with their December fixture list.

    Whatever happens with the PL City are currently favourites for the CL and it’s difficult to argue against that particularly as they should have a fully fit squad by February when the CL returns.

    Brian… 999… Regardless of the injuries or form, I just think that Liverpool will come off the boil at some stage. Even if it is a series of three draws, that will be enough for a team like city given the appalling levels of high quality players throughout their team! 😄

    Shuffling my Liverpool defender out of my fantasy line up given that loads of games are going flipping mental and be like high scoring nut jobs. Long may it continue.

    Its always after Europe pep shuffles the decks and I miss out in fantasy football… Fiver on a no score draw. 🙂

    442, tbh I don’t think either Liverpool or City would be too upset with 0-0 and everyone was predicting high scoring games between them last season and it ended 0-0 at Anfield and 2-1 at the Etihad so you might well be right especially with so much resting on the outcome.

    As I said above whatever happens on Sunday and obviously a win for Liverpool strengthens their title challenge I think much depends on how close City can remain to Liverpool going into the New Year and how Liverpool cope with their December fixtures.

    A fully fit City squad and limited injuries in the second half of the season if City were to remain in touching distance come the New Year would make things very interesting.

    Personally I think Pep will select his best available team for this game and I would be surprised if Klopp doesn’t go for his usual safety first midfield which will imo include Henderson. But we’ll see. Cheers 9’s

    9’s… best result for all concerned in the top 4 is a draw. those two draw and Leicester and CFC win… We’d be le level on points with the sky blue machine and six off Klopps metal church… Leicester for a title run? It would be flipping awesome, they still got some players who lifted the trophy last time so the old cliche of having title run in experience is rearing its ugly head again. Be gone you football cliche…. be gone….

    Quality header from Mario Pasalic against Man City last night and overall he had a good game and he’s the star player at Atlanta.

    Another loanee who perhaps could/should return to Chelsea next season?

    442/nine I think Klopp will want to swamp midfield and keep the Silvas too busy to supply Augerro and Sterling, which to me leaves the focus on KDB and this will be key plan for City. You cannot pick KDB up easily. Liverpool have there threats, we know that, I am not sure our current defensive system is good enough to hold them so we do need goals. Hopefully…no penalties, no sending offs and no VAR!!!!!!

    Brian, I feel the same as yourself. Its the thought of containing your attack, not breaching your defence , that worries me most.

    Klopp has admitted that Pep is the best manager in the world and I would say probably of all time though of course like players it is a bit difficult to compare different eras.

    I know the best manager debate is never-ending, bit like the Scholes/Gerrard/Lampard debate, but I do think saying Pepe is the best of all time is stretching it a bit. For me, there are two types of managers, the ones who can take a very good side and tinker with them so they stay at the top (like Pepe!) or those who can drag a club up by it’s boot straps and on wards to glory (like Clough for example!).

    To be the best of all time, I think you need to have proven to have done both… question is, can anybody think of a manager who’s done both??

    And so it was written in Genesis about the creation of the dawn of time, God made Adam and eve and he has now invented Lamps and Stevie who is the better manager… Daggers at dawn and until death my friends, this saga will rumble on…
