      Jesus Christ I want Moreno nowwhere near this one. Rest Robbo at home to Toon and then back at it fort Arsenal and City.

      As I have said previously, I would rather play with 10 men then have Moreno anywhere near the Liverpool team right now. I would rather trust Milner to play left back than Moreno. Sooner we sell Moreno the better.

      The only time Moreno should get a game is for pace on the wing during the last 10 mins of a game - he should be no where near the defence

      Whilst I 100% understand the sentiment - the reality is that’s very, very unlikely to happen UNLESS we buy another LB.

      Robbo can’t play every game at his intensity so Bertie is gonna get game time because Milly is in rhythm / training in the midfield. The gaffer will only throw one in like that when forced.

      Clyne might be a better bet short term.

      I know Robertson can't play every game but Moreno means a gift of a goal/penalty to the opposition. Also, perhaps rest Robertson against Newcastle and use Milner as the left back.

      Yeh I understand your nervousness but the boss is all about training consistently / defensive lines etc. He wouldn’t have Moreno in the match day squads unless he was prepared to use him.

      I only see Milly going there in emergency - especially the way he’s playing in the middle.

      If people are not willing to risk Moreno at home to Newcastle who will park the bus, then there is truly no hope.

      I fancy a full strength team with minimal changes for this game, then rotation for the Newcastle game.

      We mustn't take them lightly. Of those above them, they beat Chelsea, drew United, City, Arsenal and narrowly lost to Tottenham. Fantastic record against the the teams currently higher than them.

      I don't wish for experiments or risk taking with tactics and team selection. I'd stick with the tried tested and proven. Potential banana skin if we're not careful.

      Most importantly, no trying with Moreno. Those who know their job, go out there and nail it. We've only got 90 minutes.

      I'd have no issues with Moreno in that game.

      Robertson will need a rest at some stage.

      Moreno is nowhere near as bad as people paint him.

      He has the Degsy syndrome - one mistake becomes 3 in the blink of an eye.

      The difference is that his defensive instincts are poor and his recovery lines are atrocious.

      Neither of which should be too much of an issue against teams outside top 6.

      He is a talented, athletic wide player - not a full back or wing back.

      He’d walk into half the premier league teams.

      so rotate against Newcastle then...
      i think that Newcastle will be a tougher game because they will not play as open as Wolves, they will sit back more so playing Henderson and Milner will suit us better which will keep Fab' Robbo and Keita fresher for the Arsenal game

      Wolves shouldn't be an issue. I can see it playing out similar to Bournmouth. They try to play a nice style of football, which you just can't do against us and come out the other side unscathed.

      2-0 nice and comfortable.

      Probably not. The issue is that Robbo’s emergence has really exposed all of Moreno’s frailties and the gulf in class between the two is stark.

      I think it's that Robertson is a natural defender, and learned his trade the old school way, whereas moreno was kind of shoehorned into the role and doesn't have defensive instincts.

      Moreno was much improved prior to getting injured and its only because Andy has done so well that he hasn't had more games .Here is a novel thought lets try and support our lads as soon as they put on the shirt.
      If we can get cover of genuine quality right through the team it can only be a good thing

      Agreed - if he starts I’ll 100% support him.

      Just think Wolves are tough and Robertson is indispensable

      Against a team that likes to bomb forward down the flanks, there’s no way in hell i’m playing Moreno. Sorry, I know he cops excessive criticism, but he’s still crap. He’s the one player Jürgen hasn’t kept in his rotation and he’s leaving on a free.

      He can play against Newcastle where Robbo gets a rest.

      Like they say no game is easy any more in the PL.

      They have impressed and play very watchable football.

      Treat them like any other team at the moment. With respect and no underestimating.

      Treat them with respect Skip and then knock sh*te out of them,no slip ups just bring the 3 points back to Anfield.

      Wolves have done reasonable well but I sense a hiding is heading their way.

      8/15 for a Liverpool win is in fact generous. And 50/1 for 0-5...and 125/1 for a 0-6. We do get these hefty away wins from time to time. This could be one of those games. Generally don't bother with betting on the footie. Stick to the shares. But might just have a go.

      I wouldn't even play him against Newcastle.
      Sorry  - but Migs and Moreno are two players who - if there is *any* alternative - I wouldn't play. Ever.

      Sorry Walt there’s certain players that just don’t cut it as much as us fans want to protect our own , he’s a piss poor defender and is no where near good enough for this team we have finally moved on .
