      Played against Cardiff though didn’t he. You should read the comments from Klopp about Robbo;

      ”Had 2 very intensive games for Scotland”

      Welcome to your own assumptions but IMO there is a genuine possibility Robbo isn’t starting this game, especially with PSG in the week, and if he doesn’t then it’s likely to be Moreno starting. Unfortunately.

      Saw that and posted in Bertie’s thread mate.

      The only similar gap in our squad is Allison to Migs.

      There’s cover in front 3 and midfield but you’re replacing an elite performer with a guy who has proven himself inadequate.

      I’d like to think that if Robbo is to miss out then Milly will go to LB with Keita coming back into the midfield. Milly has had a 2 week break so it’s a given he will play, just a question of where. Hopefully if Robbo is rested for midweek then Klopp really doesn’t risk it and go for Moreno because like you say, he’s proven himself inadequate and done so time and time again. Watford are no mugs, if Moreno is playing you can guarantee they will target the life out of him and I’m almost certain he will lead to us conceding.

      Depends what Watford turns up, the improved version or the one that lost to Newcastle and drew with Southampton, same goes for us we have everything to rip them apart but its after the break and what Liverpool side turns up is anybody's guess,its not a fixture to faff about with the squad IMO, strongest 11 tuck the points away, sub as required then move on to the next challenge,

      Pretty good record against Watford, will take a 2  0 win today. Although need to attack from the start.

      Got to keep winning and keep the pressure on shitty, we're approaching a critical phase in the league so staying and possibly surpassing Pep & co will obviously be in our favour, so as strong a side as possible for this, we have ghe squad and we have the quality so no excuses really,

      Like most our team selection is our own opinions so here's mine....

                                  Alisson
          Gomez  Lovren Van Dijk Robertson
                   Hendo  Wijnaldom  Keita
                      Salah Firmino Mane

      I think this will be the back 5 Jürgen will use in Paris, so giving them 90+ minutes together is not a bad thing,
      The middle will change to accommodate Milner and probably Fabinho, alongside Gini, Henderson will be a liability imo on Wednesday,  with Fabinho more accustomed to at this level,
      The front three speak for themselves and are almost a given in fixture.


      First things first though,  lets despatch of Watford and keep that pressure on shitty,  imo, they had a easy ride last season lets see how they handle someone breathing down their necks when it comes down to their arse doing the 10p 5p dance ?

      1-3 Champions Elect  !!

      24 points up for grabs between now and when we next face City (apparently...not checked). This is one of them potential banana skin games that we really need the 3 points from. Often it’s games like this we let ourselves down and although we have let ourselves down performance wise vs Brighton and Leicester this season in particular, we’ve gotten the all important 3 points so let’s make sure that happens again today. I’d happily take a hard fought 1-0 win but would like us to make light work of it if possible.

      Its not really a banana skin game, Watford are a decent team, a win today will be a good result, especially after the international break

      playing at 3pm on a Saturday no way that will catch on.
      REally hoping to see Kieta play he looked so good early on and he is definitely different from what we have available now the one thing we lack from midfield is goals.

      We don't let many in and score well so its hard to see anything but a win today.

      PSG on Wednesday. Will that tempt Klopp to prioritise...maybe. Not rest players but prepare for PSG. Midfield will be fully maned V PSG. Then he might play Shaq today, go at them early. We don't need a dog fight hanging on for the win or a point today.

      Taking a conservative view of midfield today might invite pressure. My midfield of Hendo,Keita and Shaqiri is the offensive approach but he might hold Hendo back for PSG.

      Another 4 goals and 1 assist from Salah be decent.

      I have a horrible, nagging feeling that Moreno will be starting this game... hope I’m wrong.
      I think you're wrong on this one so don't worry. Klopp has Milner or Fabinho who can cover Robertson before we worry about going down to 10 and a half men. I'm not saying Moreno is half a man, he's half a footballer though.

      a few posts about people not being worried about the performance. I am, i Cannot remember the last time we played well. We are winning more often than not, but we need to put in a decent performance, especially with PSG looming.

      Watford managed just 1 point this month, against Newcastle and Southampton. I'm not sure we have to worry about them too much. We'll put them away as long as we don't really suck badly.

      Wasn't aware of Robbo in Scotlands 2 games , ridiculous to group 2 nation league matches like that. Should be like England and have 1 League 1 friendly. If Robbo is totally done in, Fabinho should get LB. He does it for Brazil so why not Pool?

      They are up for the fight against the top 4/5. Bit of a feather in their bonce etc. I'll be pleasantly surprised if we breeze past these...breeze these..they have pace and trickery, can turn us over if we are not on it.
