      Blackburn 0-1 Liverpool: In game and Post Match Debate
      Apr 08, 2015 06:46:13 pm










      Ewood Park








      Starting XI: Mignolet, Johnson, Lovren, Sakho, Lucas, Allen, Henderson, Moreno, Sterling, Coutinho, Sturridge

      Subs: Jones, Toure, Lambert, Manquillo, Borini, Brannagan, Markovic

      Dejan Lovren, Daniel Sturridge and Glen Johnson return to the Liverpool starting line-up for this evening's FA Cup quarter-final replay with Blackburn Rovers.

      The trio replace Kolo Toure, Lazar Markovic and the suspended Emre Can at Ewood Park as Brendan Rodgers' men look to set up a semi-final date with Aston Villa.

      Reckon it will be

      Glen "No really I'm trying my best" Johnson - All you need is Lovren - The Beast

      Jordan "Not a Wingback" Henderson - Welsh Xavi - Lucas "Lucas is his first name" Leiva - Gerrard's and Alonso's love child

      Raheem "Show me the money" Sterling - Phil "One of two players the fans like at the moment" Coutinho

      Daniel "Aurelio" Sturridge

      If it's 4-3-3 I'm happy, however if it's 3-5-2 then personally I'd be very disppointed.

      Must win, play with some pride.

      I think so as well.

      Disappointed if it is if I'm honest.

      If Hendo is playing wing back, fml, what a waste. Really not a fan of Lucas and Allen in the middle too.

      433 with Lucas, Henderson and Allen is a bit too negative too, not much creativity there?

      Anyway, I'm confident of a win, just don't like how we're setup.

      I'm not one of those less educated about footballing history who think 3-4-3 has been "found out" (as an absurd statement as saying 4-3-3, or 4-4-2 can be "found out" - its not a gimmick guys), but I don't think we currently have the personnel for it without Can and Skrtel.

      Agree.

      I don't think it has been 'found out' either but don't think its benefiting us right now.

      As I said I'll be well pissed off if Hendo is shifted again.

      Looks like a fluid 442 diamond to me, with Coutinho and Sterling dropping deeper into midfield when defending.

      Not that I really care.
      A win is all that matters.

      Impossible to tell if that's 4 or 3 at the back but I'm praying for the former just so we don't have Henderson at f**king wingback again. Although Moreno at left back won't fill me with much confidence either...

      I used to do that (stay away from the results until I could watch a replay) all the time like 10 years ago, but these days with all the social networks, whatsapp and so on, I find it simply impossible, so I don't even try anymore.

      Also won't be watching in real time as I'm stuck at work but come on Reds!

      Sorry if you thought I was panicking. I think we could play Johnson up front and Sturridge as a wingback and still win, I'm just commenting on the formation.

      If we can't work out how we're setting up let's hope it's a surprise to Blackburn.  I'm sure we're more adept at changing formations on the hoof than they are and I'm guessing that's the idea with the selection.

      It can change in an instance depending on certain triggers.

      Make us proud lads, there's a trip to London on the horizon  :kop5cf8koxp6:

      Naw it wasn't aimed at you, the overall feel since the live thread has been quite nervous, I never meant it specifically at you. I know how bad things can go but I'm going to at least look forward to us possibly trouncing them.

      BT Sport have us down as playing a 4-3-3. We won't know until the game starts.

      One thing i do know, that central midfield unit has GOT to produce. It's game like this where it's imperative we fight.

      Good to see Sturridge starting.
