      Just been looking into referees in general, Stuart Attwell from Nottinghamshire has it down he supports Luton. I'm guessing it's about as likely as somebody from Liverpool supporting Halifax Town.

      Second leg in CL last season 😬
      We can’t let them dominate the first half like we let them. Gotta start a lot more positive, which means keeping the ball better when we have it.
      Wont mind the same eventual outcome, if only my old  ticker could take it 😁

      I can’t see that happening - last time they went for broke as they were 3-0 down.

      It’ll be cagey at first but I genuinely think we can sneak a goal - it’s all about who outscores who!

      Is this not the same Anthony Taylor that everyone cries about being a United fan every time he referees our games?

      F**k him and f**k Manchester we're taking 3 points here regardless of who's in charge.

      Well what a game this could be, we could end up a massive 10points ahead of City when about a month ago we were trailing them on points and GD. Let’s start 2019 off in the same way as we finished 2018.

      We have been just plain bad so far on the road, but we also play the best football of our season right now. Tough call. I'd be happy with a draw. No Fabinho and no Keita, they are not reliable enough yet.

      Best ppg and defence and third best strike rate, away from home, in the Premier League. Struggling to match that with your sentiments of plain bad on the road.

      The boys will score a *minimum* of 3 goals (Hendo, Milner, Mane). Winning shall largely depend on the number of goals conceded.

      Expecting an aggressive encounter with a possible red card for Fernandinho. (and/or Keita if he starts)

      Can’t wait for this game,yeah they are a great side but we are top of the league for a reason,the media would have us all believe that this lot are akin to the Brazil side of the 70’s, a force of nature or  the arse ( the invincibles team) but they are anything but & I’d go as far as to say on the grand scheme of things ‘who the f**k are they’? So what if they’ve won a few league titles( look at our  history & there neighbours if they want a worthy comparison ) ! Before they were bankrolled they were no marks & moreover  we f**king blasted them off the park last season & in the European cup so have no fear red men we are bringing the 3 points back to anfield 1-3.

      He is a dick - think that’s the end of it  :)

      I don’t think Shaqiri will start - he will want a more solid midfield three

      So I think the line up will be

      Alisson

      TAA
      Lovren
      VVD
      Robbo

      Hendo
      Gini
      Keita

      it could see them shift their focus to the CL resting players before the CL games. In a way its no lose game for us as even the worse case scenario sees us with a four point lead and only Chelsea and Spurs to come at home from top 4

      Not getting away from this, fact is win Thursday we WIN THE LEAGUE,  its as simple as that,
      We're not going to slip up, We're not going to implode, even were we to lose i still believe the title is ours,
      City can't handle the pressure,  from day dot virtually we were the hunters, all the pressure was on us, we had to win every game to hang onto "the best side the prem has ever seen"
      And we did, but look what's happened the hunter became the hunted, and now City HAVE to win every game just to hang on to,  'Thee Best Side in the Prem' This season,  and they have royally fu**ed it up, they know it , we know it, so anything other than a win for them and its good night Vienna,

      For us, its just a normal day at the office,  we just go out there and do what we do best, Win, even a draw suits us just f***in fine, all the pressure is on them, pressure they can't cope with,

                           Alisson
         Trent Lovren Virgil Robertson
                           Fabinho
                 Milner            Wijnaldom
               Firmino    Salah     Mane

      As good as Hendo's been of late i think those mid 3 are a better balance,  obviously if Milner is out Hendo comes in,

      Tactically I'd go for the throat from the get go,  get that early goal and watch their chins hit their chests, mentally they'll know not only are going to lose this game, they'll be surrendering their title, Jürgen won't be sitting back, he'll want to control the game, a early goal makes that easier for us and their task too difficult.
