    I mean..what do I think this is ..a football forum ? 🙄

    So if we’re only discussing things that have actually happened, would you mind deleting 80% of your posts mate ?

    Cheers.
    Haha. Lolz indeed.

    True dat. Said to my mate earlier in the week that one thing Rafa definitley knows is how to beat teams like ours. Sit back, nick one, job done.
    Hopefully it doesnt play out like that but it wont be easy.
    Some team is due a hiding from us and out of our next 3 league games theyre the most liable.............
    The defining moments in our lives are never planned.

    I don't get this "due a hiding" attitude. Why? Surely missing multiple chances and creating precious few great ones is more likely an indication we'll continue to miss chances and not create enough good ones as we have up until now.

    Many games means rotation, it's inevitable, though going on games played/experience it's obvious enough

    Gk?
    Clyne Matip CB LB

    Gk Migs Karius Ward
    Arguably as fans we've no unanimous no1. Ward seems to be able to catch a ball. Ward & Karius seem to be better sweeper keepers, which can't be underrated in a high line style pressing defense of Klopps. Migs is a good shot stopper, whose improved on crosses and looks more confident on crosses than Karius.
    I'm going for Ward v Newcastle !

    Clynes inured sadly. Taa looks a very good player going forward, pace galore but a bit raw physically and in defending. Gomez is a physically stronger young CB playing RB. Both are doing pretty well , more so with their experience levels.

    Matip clearly CB no1 and persistent RCB to date in the big 2 competitions.

    LCB: clearly Lovren to date, then Klavan, Gomez getting a chance in the cup. Suspect Vvd was the target to play LCB !!!

    Lb Moreno Robertson
    Moreno playing while Robertson settles into new club and new father. Moreno has had a reasonably good season so far, in what is a surprise return to first team football. Robertson the new addition a vital addition for future cup success , he's Scottish and has impressed in brief glimpses.

    Milner the missing fullback. Brilliant at lb, only problem being right footed.

    Sticking with his goalkeepers and defenders we're missing Clyne, Milner and say Vvd from our options. 3/5 blows for Klopp.

    This should be our best back 5 defensively, with a question over the keeper.

    Migs??
    Clyne Matip Vvd Milner

    Backups
    Karius/Ward
    Rb-Taa Gomez Lovren Klavan Robertson Moreno
    These players would still be getting mins and cup games.

    To think, we have people complaining about FSG not backing Klopp.
    Isn't that better than Fsg/Klopp?

    A newly promoted side versus a cl club.

    Klopps spent 36.8mill€ net in his two summer windows. 18.4mill€ spend per season

    Benitez was saying that when he joined us, his budget was £20m, when he left it was £17m, but people still expected him to win the league.
    If football was meant to be played in the air, god would have put grass in the sky.

    2 goals a game, so if our woes up front continue we can expect 2 goals a game. A little improvement up front and we can expect more.
