      West Ham 3 - 1 Liverpool: In Game & Post Game Shambles.
      Sep 20, 2014 04:20:17 pm



      Resting on the bus. I hope they wake up well and full of energy ;)








      Starting XI: Mignolet, Manquillo, Moreno, Lovren, Skrtel, Gerrard, Henderson, Lucas, Sterling, Borini, Balotelli.

      Subs: Jones, Toure, Enrique, Sakho, Markovic, Lallana, Lambert.

      Fabio Borini makes his first start of the season while Martin Skrtel returns from injury for Liverpool against West Ham United at Upton Park this evening.

      The Italian striker joins compatriot Mario Balotelli and Raheem Sterling in a front three in London.

      Meanwhile, Skrtel replaces Mamadou Sakho in defence to partner Dejan Lovren and there's also a starting berth for Lucas Leiva in midfield.

      Twitter LFCUSA tweeted it but deleted it that moment! Hope they done it correctly. One wrong only :)

      Hmm don't like Gerrard and Lucas together, hope Stevie is pushing on today.

      Surprised to see Borini start but I would love to see the boy ram a few comments down peoples throats and bang in a goal

      Our 2 young full backs will be key to a win here today I think

      So good to see Brendan didn't change the back 4 for this and we've got 2 strikers, YAAAAY!!!!

      Getting excited for this now.

      Come on you Reds  :scarf: :scarf: :aaliverpool2xt1: :scarf: :scarf:

      Well that's sh*t that Skrtel has come in for Sakho, don't understand chopping and changing our defence.

      I hope not to slip on this one because LFCUSA deleted it in few seconds!

      I like the idea of Borini and Balotelli

      Lucas and Borini need big games, as this is a big chance for them in the first team.

      Praying for a win but I think its going to be tough

      Hope Lucas is the one sitting rather than Gerrard. Gerrard has been non existent in that defensive role this season(inc preseason), so Lucas coming in makes sense. As for Gerrard in a box-box role, I am not sure :(

      Perhaps Henderson and Lucas sitting with Gerrard in the #10 role?

      The way things have gone recently, not surprised to see Borini in. Bit surprised to see Lucas, though retaining possession better might be reason with Coutinho and Lallana a bit wasteful with the ball recently.
      If WH get the upper hand though for periods would be a tad worried about the pace/closing down of SG and Lucas, so need good movement from Borini, Mario and Sterling to keep WH busy/pinned back as much as possible.
      Disappointing that Lallana/Markovic not up to starting, but hopefully they're on the bench and get a chance to show pace coming on.
      CMON BOYSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Like everyone when I saw Gerrard and Lucas in the same 11 I sighed. Clearly lallana and Coutinho and being let know that poor performances won't be accepted.

      Hopefully Gerrard is pushed on but doubt it. Glad to see Borini start. His movement will give them something to chase. Hopefully our poor midfield will provide enough supply.

      Must win.

      Can't see us playing the diamond either. BR must not read the stats with the diamond. Don't think we have lost once with it. Come the f**k on.

      My worry is now if skrtel or Lovren have a poor game will BR continue to change his back 2? Sakho and Lovren should have been given atleast 10 games.

      Rodgers is a genius but sometimes he wrecks my head.

      Really surprised Brendan dropped Sakho for Skrtel as he normally only changes CB for an injury. Maybe suggests who he see's as his number one pairing.

      Also don't like Lucas/Gerrard midfield so interested to see how that one plays out.

      Glad Borini gets a start as I think he deserves a chance.

      Not a chance Gerrard will be playing anywhere other than the sitting role.

      I only hope Lucas isn't sitting right beside him and they both get in each others way and do nothing.

      Ye I think Lucas will be in the advanced role which he played against ludo. Not sure he has the stones for that role either.

      And then giving the ref the whole "I'm innocent" grin. ;D

      Hope he takes his chance this game, Borini too.

      I think we may see Lucas playing further forward as he has a couple of times when he has come on as a sub. (more like Allen does)
