    A midfield of Henderson, Thiago and Milner, with Fabinho alongside Matip in defence.

    Really hope we get off to a good start and win this.

    The schedule is -

    Ajax
    Midtjylland
    Atalanta
    Atalanta
    Ajax
    Midtjylland

    On paper (no complacency!) Midtjylland should be the side in the group that the rest aim to take 6 points from. A win against Ajax on Wednesday followed by another against Midtjylland would give us a cushion going into the tricky Atalanta games and having the "easiest" team as the sixth match is useful should we end up needing to win that one to qualify (hope not!) or will offer a rotation opportunity.

    Ajax are no mugs so 3 points on Wednesday to set up an opportunity to get into the groove of this group would be massive.

    Going to be goals
    Especially in atalanta games.

    Good to be playing some different clubs.

    Have we ever played Ajax in the European cup?

    I'm thinking under Shankly ? When Cruyff whipped our butts in the 70s ? Or was that cup winners cup or uefa cup ?

    1966 is all I can find anything on.

    They lost their last game 1-0 and they play Heerenveen today, so we can hopefully get some picture of where they are at.

    They've scored 6 goals in their 4 games thus far so they aren't rampant as of yet this season.

    Yeah, we got a hammering at Ajax 5-1 and drew 2-2 in the return leg. Cruyff and co were starting to make their way in the game at that time.
    If you're not sure what to do with the ball, just put it in the net, and we'll talk about the other options later... Bob Paisley.

    We've not played them in any competitive game since then, Sid.

    A bit mad really, considering the whole traditional European Giants thing.

    Comfortable win would be the absolute ticket right now - bonuses for clean sheet and Firmino goal!

    Luckily, their team of today isn't a patch on the 66 one, and we are better than our 66 team. They couldn't even hang on against Spurs at home when they should have gone through. I'll be very surprised if they cause us much trouble.
