      The TBS studio commentary is embarrassingly poor, never more so then when Oguchi Onyewu, following a group stage match, referred to the "return leg" as deciding "the tie."

      Ha ha that is so cringe! I couldn’t watch

      Not looking forward to this one at all. The CL campaign as a whole feels flat to me this time around.

      Can we still make it to the KO stages with our own power if we lose it?

      Anything is possible: win, draw or loss. Tough game, but defining game.

      I would be tempted to go with 

                                                                 Alisson

                            Gomez            Lovren                Van Dijk              Robertson

                                                                 Fabinho
                                                 Wijnaldum              Milner

                          Mane                                                                Salah
                                                               Bobby

      I just think Gomez will be defensively more solid than Trent at this stage. Fabinho played in France for Monaco, he knows PSG.

      A must not lose game so can't see Shaqiri starting with the front three. Henderson likely to start as he misses the Derby and Klopp trusts him for these big away games. I still cannot see Keita getting the nod unfortunately and I wouldn't play Fabinho.

      I think we can do these. They are full of big names but there is something off about them as a team. I'll say 1-1 though which leaves us needeing to beat Napoli at home more than likely.





      I don't like that at all, I agree with perhaps being more defensive but I don't think packing the midfield with negative players is very smart as their midfield will just swarm us and it will be attack after attack for 90 minutes and with the quality they have they will score at some point and then we'll not have enough offensive quality to attack them.
      If we want to be a bit more defensive then I'd rather go with a 5-2-3 formation and play Lovren and Gomez alongside VVD and have Keita/Shaq and Fabinho in midfield so that we still have a bit of drive going forwards.

      Useless f**king internationals taking away so much playing time that we/all teams have to play so many games by the end of the year. Useless f**king FA.

      I am dredding this match. I hope we can get away with a draw then needing to beat Napoli at home. PSG are really good on their on turf.

      PSG weren't that good against Napoli at home were they, only just scrambling a last gasp equaliser. If we play well and play positively on the break then we can win this, if we sit back all match we will lose.

      I’d love Hendo, Gini and Keita as a trio but I doubt it.

      No need to change the defence unless Joe is fit. Then he replaces Dejan.

      Shaq for Mané if need be and probably have he and Bob floating around Mo as the striker.

      Don't be too shocked to see Joe come in for Trent, instead. Just a vibe I get from looking at team news the past couple of days. We'll see.

      Am i going crackers here or if we win do we qualify..? That would put us on 9 points and keep PSG on 5 with 1 game left..?

      We dont want to lose, but even if we do its down to the final game where a 2-0 win see's us go through (or a win by a 2 goal margin). Which to be fair we should be capable of achieving...

      Difficult match to predict, tbh. I am not even sure, if we need to win to make sure of qualifying, for the knockout stages. Those International breaks, seem to f**k everything up to my mind. I even thought the match was tonight !! until I checked, really getting confused somewhere along the line, this season.

      They have a great attack and in Mbappe and Neymar a world class pair but they don’t really give much help to their full backs.

      In the French league they can get away with this approach but hopefully Mane and Salah have them on toast tomorrow night.

      Take our chances and we will win as the main difference between the two sides is we have a better defence.

      Our dire away form in Europe has to change eventually and this would be the perfect time to do it.

      This team is now capable of sitting in and withstanding pressure. We can then hit these on the counter with the pace of Mane and Salah. I've a sneaky feeling we will do them!
