    Just to get the thread going, more than anything. PSG head into this game absolutely needing a win. I don’t have the latest on Neymar and M’Bappe but I’m assuming their injuries are bollox and they will play. Honestly they can rest players in their shite league and we cant but who cares. Honestly, we can beat any team on the planet on a good day. bring them on I say.

    It might seem a little ballsy but I’ve predicted a 2-0 win to us. Let’s put them out and us through and not have to beat Napoli in the final match to have a chance.

    On the other thread Mak, you correctly allude to us being fortunate to not have lost some league games in the PL this season – yet weā€™ve lost both away games so far in the CL this season because we werenā€™t fortunate enough to hang on or we just didnā€™t perform. And this away game to PSG is huge in terms of the group. So a big big test ahead.

    Hereā€™s a question – we obviously did well to beat Watford – but would that *performance* be good enough to beat PSG away? Far from sure it would be. This is why, regardless of how good the table suggests weā€™re doing, we need to improve if we have eyes on the bigger prizes this season.

    cheers Mikus, well luckily for us the 2 games will be chalk and cheese. PSG will attack a lot, whereas Watford were defending for their lives for the majority of the game. Our difficulty will be in controlling the PSG match, when it was more about breaking Watford down.

    We’ll definitely have to be sharper. PSG won’t sit with 8 defenders but if we want to keep a cleansheet, we’ll have to control the game. Our midfield will have to be dominant and our defence will have to be as solid as they can be. After that it’s hard to say what to expect from the forwards because we know they can do it. They will get more space to work with. You’re right, luck hasn’t bailed us out in the CL so far and we’re pretty much out of fooling around time.

    Maybe it;s no bad thing to have this early reminder that we get our shit together, or we go out. In the past we’ve shown up in the big matches and this is definitely one of them, so along with our attack looking better each week (generally), I’m not overboard with confidence but more that we’ve gone through much more difficult tasks and come out the other side. It’s a great opportunity for the lads to find 3rd gear. If we happen to lose tonight and we are facing CL elimination then we’ve nobody to blame but ourselves. If we win then we’ve got something to kick on from.

    Think this is going to be a great match. Got a feeling we will go 433 and press the bejeezus out of them. But, they have quality all over the park so im predicting a 2-2 draw which will benefit neither team.

    You’re right, Mak, if we go out (though we can’t for definite tonight) we have no-one but ourselves to blame for our two abject performances in Napoli and Belgrade. Obviously all these sides in the Champions League are good or even excellent teams, and bad results can and do happen, but in neither of those two away games did we compete at all.

    Well, it’s crunch time now and the maths is simple. Win and we’re through, draw and we need to beat Napoli and lose and we need to beat Napoli by 2 goals. C’mon lads!

    This is a very very tough game but just go at them. Go there and attack. They can be got at.

    Probably the game of the night. PSG seemingly will have all their big guns back. Normally a draw would be a good result for Liverpool but they may need the win considering the remaining fixtures which is not out of the question. ( b****y predictve text.šŸ˜Š)

    Nine, I didn’t believe for a second that either of those players were legitimately injured. They wanted an excuse to rest them both in the dogtoy league that they play in. It doesn’t matter though, if we turn up we can beat anyone. If we don’t then we don’t deserve it.

    As Mikes said if we play like we have been it wonā€™t be enough. Be interesting to see how we play, whilst our D has been great this is one team we canā€™t play passively against, if we try to contain them we will lose. We need to go at them to have any chance.

    Our defensive game isnt THAT defensive. I mean, the fact that our attack hasn’t been earth shatteringly good this season means that it looks more defensive than it is. I’ll go on record before the game (famous last words) in saying that this is pretty much the team I’d have gone with (if it is what I think it is anyway). Not conceding early is vital. then we can look to get a hold of the ball and of curse we want to hit them on the break if we can.

    If we play like we did last season, they’d be hitting us on the break and that is as bad as anything. No matter what happens, we’ve got to play well. They aren’t the most disciplined but we all know that they have some bloody assassins playing for them.

    I dont even think we will beat Napoli let alone by 2 goals, I can see a draw at best & we will be gone from the C/L. All focus now on the EPL & hopefully c$ty progress through the round in the C/L & take their eye off the ball in the EPL. Not really expecting that though with the depth they have. Another trophy less season for LFC I’m afraid.
