Fabinho, Van Dijk, Wijnaldum, Milner, Keita, Firmino, Mane, Salah, Gomez, Adrian, Henderson, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Lallana, Lonergan, Shaqiri, Brewster, Robertson, Origi, Matip, Hoever, Kelleher, Alexander-Arnold, Elliott.
No Lovren as it looks like he is off to Roma. Interesting if Hoever, Brewster or Elliott get any game time.13th August 2019 at 12:28 pm #45203Tugay is GodParticipant10 pts
“Cant believe there is a female ref and linesmen…I mean lineswomen!
Its all wrong. Its a blokes game lets keep it for blokes”
What an idiotic thing to say. Thought we’d left your sort back in the past. Doesn’t surprise me however going off your previous posts.13th August 2019 at 12:34 pm #45204Chucky McChuckfaceParticipant461 pts
Interesting the little mini-debate about girly refs and lino’s…
On one hand, why not? At the end of the day, as long as whoever is doing is competent then it doesn’t really matter…
One the other hand, if the Women’s World Cup was all female (with not a male in site) and the men was all men’s, why crossover?? What is there to gain from deliberately doing this, unless the ref’s in turn happen to be the best in the world, and not at all gender based? (Which I doubt!).
Not quite the same thing but I remember all the hullabaloo when a woman golfer entered on the men’s tour (and subsequently tanked!), certain male golfers were suggesting it’s only fair if the men were allowed to play on the girly tour, which obviously never happened.13th August 2019 at 1:45 pm #45210
Not an unlikely move by UEFA alongside playing major European Finals in outposts like Baku. They like pushing the boundaries under this particular President.
I’m not against it and Sian Massey – Ellis has been a very good linesperson in the PL I just hope the players on Wednesday night are respectful of the officials although that shouldn’t make any difference as to whether they are male or female.13th August 2019 at 1:53 pm #45211Chucky McChuckfaceParticipant461 pts
For me, the levels of “dissent” is the most curious thing about the match… I wonder if we see a few more bookings than usual for the “gobshite” footballers are renowned for!13th August 2019 at 2:29 pm #45212AdlabParticipant236 pts
Thank you Tugay!
Personal opinion. Too much political correctness for me.
Back to the match. Think Chelsea will be up for it after Sunday. They dont look half as dangerous without Hazard (obvious!). Could easily go either way.13th August 2019 at 2:37 pm #45214
To be fair to Adlab it is unusual to have 3 female officials for a big game like this I can’t think where it’s happened previously but Stephanie Frappart is meant to be a very good Referee and Sian Massey- Ellis as we all know is a very good linesperson.13th August 2019 at 3:32 pm #45219
After Frank’s pre match press conference Willian probably on the bench , Rudiger probably not quite ready for that, Kante picked up another slight injury on Sunday likely at best to br on the bench but they’re talking tonight?13th August 2019 at 4:08 pm #45221newbalanceParticipant181 pts
The game is on Wednesday right?13th August 2019 at 5:21 pm #45222
Billy Gilmour aged just 18 in the Chelsea Super Cup squad great potential and a wonderful experience for the lad.13th August 2019 at 5:47 pm #45223
just 18? Pah, an oldie! We have Elliot in our squad and he’s barely out of nappies!
Yes Nil, 20:00 BST, Wednesday. I think for you UK people it’s on BT.13th August 2019 at 6:01 pm #45225
Ha, ha, threeps true enough buddie Gilmour only turned 18 a few weeks ago but he’s an old man by comparison to Elliot.😊13th August 2019 at 7:31 pm #45227AdlabParticipant236 pts
Quite looking forward to the game. Really wouldnt say who might win. Liverpool are big favourites but I have a little feel for Chelsea.13th August 2019 at 9:18 pm #45235newbalanceParticipant181 pts
3ps, the way some of the posts were coming across, it was as they were building themselves up for Tonight (which got me thinking!).14th August 2019 at 8:13 am #45256sean the sailorParticipant319 pts
You look at Chelsea’s team on Sunday and it was severely weakened yet they still did well. Mistakes killed them
We should be winning tonight as they are still missing key players but anything can happen in a one off game.
We have the squad to mix it up tonight so would like to see Matip, mane and Keita come in
If we keep playing that high a line then it’s a huge risk. We conceded far to many chances in our last two games. We seem to playing nearly on the half way line these days. Last season it was well organizedand it looked like we played a good few yards back then our previous two games14th August 2019 at 8:34 am #45257
Liverpool 5/7 on Chelsea 9/2 against. Seems about right to me. I would take a narrow defeat and a decent performance right now if it was on offer.14th August 2019 at 1:01 pm #45267PaganParticipant272 pts
Having seen a lot of female refs in the grass roots leagues, they’re pretty much on par with the male ones, some poor, some good and some exceptional ones. What you do see is the the difference in the players if a decision goes against them, a bit less aggression and more questioning, they tend to show a bit more respect, for me it will be interesting to see if that trait carries on into the professional game. It will also be interesting to see how they deal with the diving and feigning injury, which is rare in the women’s game, would be funny to see the ref tell a player to man up…..Pagan14th August 2019 at 6:38 pm #45276MikusParticipant211 pts
It really does wind me up that even the pre season and friendly competitions (Community Shield, Super Cup) are no longer free to air. Can they not just let these go for once? Any opportunity to make money. Wouldn’t surprise me if they start charging fans to queue up for autographs soon.14th August 2019 at 6:50 pm #45277PaganParticipant272 pts
Mikus, that’s the down side of high transfer fees and clubs paying ridiculous salaries, the money has to come from somewhere…..Pagan14th August 2019 at 6:54 pm #45278
Ox in for Firmino so either Salah or Mane up top. Matip for TAA so Gomez at right back. Milner straight swap with Gini.
Be interesting to see how this forward line works. Could it be Gini up top and Ox into the middle 3?
