    Nine, was at work yesterday speaking about this.

    Your last Para is spot on alluding to the dangers of laying all eggs in one basket as they say.

    I do love the FA Cup. For Liverpool essentially this term it’s to home in on Silverware. There’s been none since 2012 and we’ve been on the wrong end quite a fair bit be it any Cup Final and The League Title.

    In the same breath if it paves a blessing to be knocked out of the CL early doors then I’ll take that and see through the remaining journey of the domestic to finally end our 29 year wait.

    An FA Cup with that would be even sweeter

    Cheers 😺

    Nil, I wouldn’t rule out a Liverpool League and Cup double this season mate. Wolves away if Liverpool play a weakened team might be tricky though. But I agree shoot at all the targets and see what happens. Cheers 999

    Lol just pondering and wondering on what could lie ahead in relation to our Team Selection for Wolves.

    Mignolet and Moreno?

    Lallana and Divock Origi lol

    🤣😊

    70 minutes from De Bruyne in a 7 nil City win yesterday.

    De Bruyne could be like a new signing for City if he can put his injuries from this season behind him and have a major impact on City’s season from here?

    A fantastic player and it is good to have him back. I am pleased Pep is managing this return well and also giving David Silva and Fernaniho a rest as well

    Nine, I think it’s a very difficult one for Liverpool now, but they may now have to go for it tonight to regain momentum and a belief in themselves. If people disagree and think that the cup could harm our league chances then the biggest thing that has harmed our league chances is the recent loss to City. I think that result has been underestimated by many in the media, and whilst it still looks like a different more title winning Liverpool this season, it has still failed to be ruthless in many of the big games this season – particularly the away games in both the league and CL (i.e. away to Napoli, PSG, Man City, Chelsea and Arsenal). And against this City team, it just can’t afford to do that. This lower energy football may be working for Klopp against the lesser sides, but it ain’t working against the better sides. We have lost our frightening edge. The one key area in which we beat City several times last year was our momentum and fight – we can’t lose that this season in the trade off vs lower energy football and there are times as I say where we have lost it and the results have unsurprisingly followed suit.

    Also in the 2011/2012 season, City were just 3 points clear of Man Utd at this stage and we all know how that season ended.

    Mignolet, Camacho, Lovren, Fabinho, Morenho, Milner, Keita, Jones, Shaquiri, Sturridge, Origi.

    He’s mixed it up as I suspected which is absolutely understandable. Hope though that we avoid a replay and we see off the job in this one visit.

    Be a tough tie and never to take Wolves lightly.

    That looks a very weak pool side… this game got a lot more interesting than it was 20 minutes ago!

    Wow, just thinking back to when we played these guys on that Friday of the 21st. Brilliant game – kept us Top of The Pile through Xmas 🙂

    Interesting Liverpool team but the FA Cup is currently their third priority.

    This game so far hasn’t really taken off – pedestrian at best. Liverpool taking a while to find their flow. Perhaps it’s down to the new faces and the mix. Origi seems isolated and needs to drop a little deep and integrate with the midfield.

    I was expecting a bit more from Keita this season but he’s a very good player and he could have a big impact on Liverpool in the second half of the season.

    Need something orthodox like a good old fashion ball down the wing, then a high cross for somebody to get on the end of it like yesterday with Newport’s first goal.
