      Pre-Match: Watford V Liverpool (24/11/18 - 15:00)
      Nov 20, 2018 12:05:20 pm



      Team selection is hard for this one. You'd assume that back five will start and Milner as part of the three because he has been rested. Will Shaqiri start? I'm not so sure Klopp will break up our front three for him and away at Watford he might prefer a combative midfield like he has all season.

      Watford started the season strongly but have been inconsistent of late and we should have enough for them. 1-2 Reds!!!  :kop5cf8koxp6: :kop5cf8koxp6: :kop5cf8koxp6:

      Would start Hendo if fit with Keita and Milner for this give Gini a breather just played two games and needs to 100% for PSG

      Should be a good contest. I like the way Watford attack. They will fancy it and won't go in feeling in any way inferior to us. Be an open game, goals, chances, spills and thrills.

      2-3...2-4...

      Hendo shouldn't be risked. Not that I'm a huge Hendo fan, but we'll need him a lot in the coming months and playing him  against Watford is too big a gamble.

      I'd advocate resting him for the rest of the season, just to be on the safe side ;-)

      I'd play Fabinho, Keita and Shaquiri, no point sitting back against Watford, we might as well take the game to them.

      he's not my number one pick either, but looking at how many games we have we're going to need all the players we have. It's a good job we ducked out the league cup early to be honest.

      Can't really say any of the midfield squad are a certain pick. I'm having Shaq in but nobody is guaranteed a place so far. Hendo might get the nod as he is the most experienced and Watford aren't going to be shy. My front 6 for this one is:

      Hendo,Keita,Shaqiri,Salah,Firmino,Mane...with Danny on standby.

      I still think it can work, especially in a midfield 3 with both as the 8's.

      Anyway, Hendo is fit , so will Klopp go for a more industrial or technical? I am leaning more to the former with the tried and tested midfield 3 of, Hendo, Milner and Wijnaldum.

      Although, I would like us to go for the jugular with the more offense minded technical midfield in, Fabinho, Wijnaldum/Keita & Shaqiri.

      Little be worried about this one. Think we have enough to get the 3 points. Take a 1-0 own goal! They all count

      I really do wish you'd stop with this nonsense about "technical" vs "industrial".
      It's a load of sh*te, as was the ridiculous assertion that Henderson "lacks composure" or that 2 deep players always means a "double pivot".

      Just another thinly disguised stick to try and beat a player you don't like.
      This bandwagon is getting really f**king tiresome.

      to be fair, Liverpool needed the break. Our performances were sub par. If we hit the ground running against Watford the international break would have been a good thing for us.

      You really do get triggered over nothing and start something out of nothing. You really need to chill, Swab.

      Why do you think I hate Hendo? Never have I questioned his captaincy, never have I said he was a sh*t player, and never have I said he should be sold. However, what I have said; his industrial work rivals that of Kante and he could have (maybe still) reached Rakitic level, and what I have said many times, he should be first choice #8 (although with how Wijnaldum and Milner are playing, for the first time this season, I am questioning it)... so yeah, I hate Hendo ;)

      Just accept that some players are more technical than others, but that doesn't always necessary mean the technical player is better or better for the team..... just take a look at Aquilani. You should also consider the fact that not all criticism is an attack or a disguise stick to beat on player.

      I get it, you are a Hendo fanboy, just like I am with Fabinho, but unlike you, I accept that both have their strengths and weaknesses. Where Hendo is stronger and more comfortable in a midfield 3 and more industrial than Fabinho, I think Fabinho is stronger in a double pivot and more comfortable playing under pressure whilst reading the game better from deep, and right now, I prefer us to use the double pivot as I feel with the players we have, it gives us a better balance as a team and more in attack.

      Is it really that difficult to accept other people's opinion for you? It really is getting tiresome for me always having to defend my opinion over Hendo when I actually rate him, just not as a 6, sorry.

      I am still struggling with this whole 6 and 8 thing, especially as football manager has squad numbers. An example of this was xavi and iniesta who wore 6 and 8 for Barcelona but reversed those numbers for spain
