      Its not a must win game at all, but if we win it, which I very much feel that we will, then we'll be in a commanding position in the group.

      To my mind we must treat this as a much win game,anything less will only bring needless pressure  on us in the remaining group matches.

      If we're not top of the group tonight then I think we will struggle to qualify out the group.

      A bit of luck to repay Saturdays Linesmans decision wouldn't go a miss but we have to win this.

      to be fair on Europa League, it's more interesting now it has CL qualification as a prize. We should finish in the top four anyway, but if Leicester etc... can finish 6th or something the EL has more of a relevance than it used to... when smaller clubs win it, the CL qualification can totally transform the club... it was a missing link before. Because the way the EL has been transformed, good players will accept EL a bit more than they used to which is probably why a lot of Europes better leagues are seeing a top 6 instead of just the old top 4.

      I really hope this game is on cable TV where I am, most of the league games are, but the Champions League rarely is. If I’m stuck with a stream at midnight I’ll top myself xD

      Serious hopes that we’ll go out and find our shooting boots buried somewhere in their ground, it could be a tough game or we could start an absolute riot that could see us return to last seasons form!

      That depends entirely on how the PSG and Napoli game goes, we'd still just need to beat one of those 2 to go through and we have Napoli at home. Obviously its a hell of a lot easier if we win tonight but not impossible even if we don't.
      I actually fancy us to win or at least draw all our remaining games.

      Guys I'm a bit confused by the apprehension on here, I know we were not at our best against Arsenal but they are a much much better side than Red Star and even so we could have won that game with a bit more luck going our way.
      I think we'll do a Porto on these guys, a proper thrashing, as they'll have to come out attacking against us and I don't think the atmosphere will phase us one bit, these lads have been in some proper cauldrons before and always keep their nerve, plus our defence is so much more solid at the moment.

      I think the apprehension is reasonable.  It will be an intimidating atmosphere and build up.  We do have a talented but still young team, and to be fair they've come up short in finals etc when the pressure has been on.  I feel like the club feeling it necessary to leave Shaqiri at home will also add concern in our young players minds. 

      Hope I'm all wrong and they breeze down this tunnel and go out and smash them 5-0.

      That's old footage the tunnel has been cleaned up and refurbished to a degree, it doesn't look as "intimidating" now.

      That tunnel reminds me of the walkway between lines in “Passeig de Gracia” metro station in Barcelona.

      Fair points.

      They might be a pretty poor team, but a crowd like they have can really lift them and if they manage an early goal, they will be a handful.
      Then again, if we get an early one, I think we'll win it comfortably.

      I'm wondering if their coach will line up 4 players on their right again at kick off like it's f**king rugby  :laugh:

      What did all the grafiti mean, it just makes it look a bit sh*t rather than intimidating, the noise is impressive though, but I still don't think it will phase our players to much, although it would be a very bad game to play any rookies.

      Joe          Lovern    VVD     Robbo

                  Gini                Fabinho

      I know young Trent had a poor game by his standards but I'd keep the same backline for this game ie TAA, Gomez, VVD, Robertsen. Trent needs more games to rediscover his excellent form from last year, he doesn't need or deserve benching.

      Agree. TAA should play against this lot to get better. Yes, he had a bad time of recent but that is against much better opponents than these lot. Anyway, that is my 2p worth not that Klopp listens to me.

      I can understand the Lallana choice, because if Gomez plays on the right we lose a bit of attacking threat, and Lallana brings a bit extra.

      I'm curious about why you think Sturridge will start though?
      To rest Firmino?
      To me, he slows things down a bit too much, but I'm interested to know your thoughts on it.
