threeps,, Oz and Mak – can’t disagree about the next few games, the next two particularly. Neither Spurs nor United are in any kind of form, but they’ll relish the chance to be the first to beat us this season, and will no doubt raise their games accordingly. However, should we score the first goal in either of these games,, I would expect us to win the game fairly comfortably. We have a few players coming back from injury now,, although we have now lost Keita and Milly, of course, but I would expect the strongest possible team for the next block, the only question being Lallana or Ox. My hunch says it should be Lallana based on his recent performances, with Ox,, Shaq, Divvy and maybe Minamino to use from the bench. We just do not need any further injuries, particularly to any of our midfield9th January 2020 at 5:07 pm #58131sean the sailorParticipant339 pts
Jose be more then happy with 0-0 here. He will park the bus. That will mean 4-2-3-1 with the two wide players in the 3 pushing back to be full backs and the two full backs tucking in to make it a back 6. He’s done it againest us numerous times
Very tough period. We are going to drop points soon but we can’t panic. Huge few weeks coming up that will make Or break us but we can go anywhere and win.
We are full of confidence and I’m
Expecting to go to spurs and winning but it’s going to be messy

Spurs have a horrendous injury list at the moment. Kane is out and they have no direct replacement so probably Son up top. But in midfield Sissoko, Winks,Ndombele and maybe Winks are out, and for left back both Rose and Davies meaning the youngster Sessegnon moves back or a centre back moves across. Obviously they’ll still have their reserve keeper in goal too.9th January 2020 at 10:27 pm #58144MikusParticipant192 pts
Jose loves these challenges and knows the global audience will be that bit higher in such games. Klopp though, has generally been quite reactive in making changes during games if need be, so will quickly shuffle things around if José does another tactical job on us.9th January 2020 at 10:32 pm #58145newbalanceSpectator190 pts
To be fair, irrespective of whoever is sitting at the top of the tree, the opposition will try to stand up and be counted. Man United themselves had it for years when they were in dominance when teams for that particular occasion for raise their game.
Last clean sheet at Spurs’ was just over a month against Burnley. Chelsea went there recently and came away with a 2-0 win.
I’m not saying it’s going to be an easy ride and of course, Jose will be up for this, but we have just found it in us to be highly resolute, find an extra gear, and be consistent to hit the back of the net.
We come away with a 1-Nil, and I’d be delighted 🙂10th January 2020 at 8:16 am #58147steveosnakeeyeParticipant208 pts
Brewster is a strange one form a non liverpool fan persective, his was the mian name i heard in pre and earl;y season but as you say hasnt had the chances the others have or if he has hasnt made the most of it, hopefully he can do a “Tammy” for you guys or even a “Kane”, Kane was shocking for most of his loans and then came back and exploded i seem to remember?
as for the medical staff, when you get a good one or olose a good one they are as hard to replce as managers! when we lost ours to the England set up we took an age to get a decent bloke in
last note, was reading about “bobby duncan” changing his agent yet again and how he is hardly settng the world alight in italy! think that was one you did well to get shot off especially with such a terrific menatility running through the club at present10th January 2020 at 2:51 pm #58182We’reTheParkLaneParticipant26 pts
I am not looking forward to this weekends game one bit, even without the stack of injuries we have we are no match for this Liverpool team and it could be a 5/6 goal annihilation regardless of how many buses Jose parks.Oh well you lose some and you lose some more.10th January 2020 at 3:12 pm #58188sean the sailorParticipant339 pts
Brickie, I’ve heard that so many times when we play utd recently mate. Everyone said we would trash utd at old tarford and we didn’t
Tomorrow is going to be a very hard game for us. Jose knows how to set a team up againest us
We will not trash spurs tomorrow mate.
I would love you to be right though mate lol!10th January 2020 at 4:13 pm #58193We’reTheParkLaneParticipant26 pts
I appreciate your faith Sean but it won’t happen mate, Lloris, Davies, Rose????,Ndombele, Kane and Sissoko all out so 5 of our best starting X1 as Rose is a maybe.I don’t think there’s a team in the league who could manage those injuries and get even a point against Liverpool.

The Utd game can’t come quick enough for me, even if I think we look knackered lately and need the rest.
If I were Klopp. I’d start Lallana instead of Oxlade and try to bring on Minamino if the chance arrives.15th January 2020 at 2:56 pm #60606

Not from the German press mate no, seems all the talk is from Spain (why would a Spanish paper have knowledge about an English team buying from German?!). Both LFC and Utd have had an interest for a while but all the talk over here is that he will be a Bayern player next season. If they get him, Sane and Werner as also rumored that could be one heck of a good transfer window!
Can’t see LFC spending that amount on someone that wouldn’t be an automatic starter.15th January 2020 at 5:14 pm #60615
3ps-I take it Coutinho will not be signed?And if they sign Werner,is he going to play 2nd fiddle to Lewa?15th January 2020 at 5:17 pm #60617
And why wouldnt Liverpool splash £100m for a player?You are making ££££ left,right,and centre,signed a new deal with the sponsor,and doing great on the pitch.Havertz,Fabinho and Henderson/Keita in the middle,would be a great midfield.15th January 2020 at 5:54 pm #60620
Coutinho is a bit hot and cold for Bayern. They may want him but I get the feeling not for the agreed price. I think they’d rather go for Harertz, who is younger, far more potential, maybe cheaper (factor in wages also) and German.
Werner was always earmarked as Lewandowski’s replacement. Problem is, Lewandowski does not appear to be slowing down at all, with 19 goals in 17 league games already! Werner could still move and get game time on the wings before moving to no 9 when Lewadowski calls it a day.
Havertz plays more forward than the forward midfielder in Liverpools 3. If he signed, it would mean a slight change of tactic. He would compete with Ox and Keita for that more forward role. I still think even if he signed Klopp’s midfield choice would be Gini-Fab-Hendo all being fit as that is by far the best for Liverpool’s tactics.

The Kai Havertz link appears to be false. The story seems to have originated with that awful spanish tabloid, i forget it’s name. Mundo something.
Anyway lads. I’ve got a question for the Liverpool fans here that they mgiht not like but I’m going to ask it anyway :
Do we as fans (not the players, staff etc) admit that the league is all but won if we win our next 2 PL matches?
For me, that’s a big enough ask but we’ve spoken about fixtures After that for both ourselves and City. They definitely favour us.
In order for the question to be valid, we must win both but if we can manage that then I am saying right here, that the league is all but won. The manager and players cant even dream of admitting it as there will still be so much hard work ahead but at this point, I can’t see us losing it.17th January 2020 at 7:12 pm #60834
“.Havertz,Fabinho and Henderson/Keita”
Wijnaldum will never lose his palce in the side. he’s one of the first names on the teamsheet. I know you’re a Utd fan and go from what you hear and the limited amount of games that you might catch from us but ya, Gini is i think one of Klopp’s favour players.

Maybe it’s the above kind of comment that nil says is arrogant. Tell me Mav, did that read negatively to you at all? Honestly now, not just like “no mate yer ok”.18th January 2020 at 12:41 am #60838OzParticipant45 pts
We’d have to lose 5 more games than city to throw away our lead. I can see city going on a massive winning streak but I can’t see them going undefeated & us losing 5 games. I’m not calling it but gee it’s unlikely we’d lose it from here & even more so if we win the next 2. Drop points in the next few games though and maybe some doubt will creep in and city will get a slight sniff.
All if’s and buts though & the main thing for me is we look very solid at the moment & the togetherness with everyone involved with the club is the best I’ve seen it. Here’s to 3 points against our arch rivals.
Take care lads (and lassies if there’s any on here).18th January 2020 at 1:34 am #60839
Good to see you back Oz, try and post more me old chum.
As for what you’ve said, it falls totally in line with what i;ve been saying about these next 2. I think if we can just feckin win them.. like COME ON!!… then I think the title is ours man.
