      Everton game moved in between Arsenal, Chelsea for city. So now it's Newcastle(A), Arsenal(H), Everton (A), Chelsea(H) in a space of 12 days.

      Interesting couple of weeks ahead.  Let's see if the game in hand actually puts them in a good position or f**k them up.

      That is a tough sequence of matches.

      Every Prem game in March has been shifted so Man city play the day before us  :mad:
      This includes the Burnely game March 9th.... A game, which was at 3pm on the Saturday, now shifted to Sunday the 10th with a noon kick off.
      I managed to get 4 x tickets for this.
      Me and my wife and our two sons (16 & 20)
      Full hit, with meal beforehand and drinks etc in one of the premier lounges in the new main stand.

      We arrive in Liverpool on the Friday and have flights booked for 4.20pm back home on the Sunday from JLA.
      The change of kick off date and time means it'll be a mad rush in the traffic to leave the ground, bang on the final whistle and crawl through the traffic across town to the airport.
      We'll miss out on the post match drinks in the bar and possible meet with some of the LFC legends, an experience my two boys were really looking forward too.
      I'm pretty f**king pissed off about the whole thing and re-structure of our fixtures to be honest.
      I know it's all about the TV rights etc but this has hit us, and i'm sure many others too, in the pocket.

      It's our first time ever at Anfield to watch a game as a family and we've saved hard to go, nearly £1,000 with flights and hotel.

      Should've not bothered and stayed at home and watched it on BT Sports now :mad:

      Maybe I should write to Mr Klopp and see what he says about the whole thing?

      You should let the club know, may be they can do something for you before the game for your boys to meet whoever.

      Points on the board for me too, keeps the wolf from the door ! too much pressure and hype leading up to a game in hand which unnerves me. I've seen us cock so many chances up with games in hand over the years and I don't want that to happen again, ever !!

      win win and keep winning..

      Like Redrum on the final straight of the Grand National

      Thanks for all your comments regarding the Burnely game rescheduled kick off time fiasco.
      I've calmed down a bit now. ;D
      Still believe it will be one spiritual return to Anfield for me and an Anfield baptism of fire for my family.
      Just a pity we've gotta shoot off pretty much straight after the final whistle.

      It's actually us that will have the game in hand from it. The bad news is, it's away to the mancs. But at least, we'll know what result we need going into the game.

      Always been points on the board for me, or in cities case, points off the board.
      4 ahead now, could be 7 tomorrow. If city had won, and were just 1 behind, the pressure would be huge going for a win.  Now, the lads can relax a bit, play their own game, and know whatever the outcome it can’t be less than 4 ahead.
      No room for complacency, but a lot of pressure lifted.
      although I don’t like these long breaks, I’m hoping we get straight back at it, fluent smooth aggressive footy, with a solid back line.
      Rauscious crowd, and grab the three points.
      Come on you mighty Red Men 😁

      So before our game, we knew what result we needed to extend our lead, and despite the response after it, we extended it.

      If we played first and got the same result though, there would have been meltdown.

      Taking the positives is the only way to go. Conditions and injuries, form of one or two, but we increased our lead. City have shown several times already that they are not immune to poor form or unbeatable. Still in the balance, every one of those 5 points will be needed.

      In my opinion its all about getting points on the board and asking questions of the others.

      It means that you've delivered, but they still need to do a job.

      Id rather set the tempo then try and match it.

      It's unfortunate every week we seem to get new injuries. Now gini and hendo are very doubtful for weekend. We don't have the depth of city who now despite playing 2/3times a week have everyone fit. You look at our bench Monday and there bench tonight. De bryne sterling mahrez and jesus all can only get a place on the bench. I still live in hope but it be difficult if our injured players are not back soon. Anyway three points sat. Can't expect anything tonight and espically with Everton three best players given the night off

      Now we're the ones with the game in hand. Let's make it count.

      We may not be top but unlike our rivals,  our destiny is still in our own hands.

      We deffo need a win on Sat so we go from game in hand to points on the board again. More important is a defining win. A good team performance and a big comfortable win, preferably with a clean sheet.
      Not firing up top, disjointed midfield and a poor defence ! We need a convincing win to get the confidence up again, because if we go to macs with our heads down and a lack of confidence we will get hammered. That will probably be good buy to the title.
      If ever there was a must win game, for  lots of reasons apart from the 3 points, this is it.

      Lallana isn't the answer  to our midfield, Millie isn't the answer to r back ( although he may fare better against Bournemouth) and if Bob has another mare, he has to go off a lot earlier before any damage is done.  It seems Mane is the only one who hasn't been adversely affected by our current injury crop. Doesn't look like any of the walking wounded will be available on Sat either, so options are a bit limited .
      Matip is really the only answer to go in at C Back wit VVD unless we play the youngster in there again, but he looks all over the place. In mid field I think Lallana just doesn't cut it, and hasn't since his return from injury, but neither has shaq apart from the odd few occasions. They both seem to have loads of energy, loads of running in them, but very little end product most of the time.
      Bottom line is, we are in a pretty poor state compared to December, and the confidence looks shot to pieces.  Even though we can still go top, its looking like a huge task to stay there until our sick bay is cleared.

      We have 5 games to play before the international break, the rivals have 3. So winning all 5 games would allow us the chance to open a 6 point gap, going into the run in.

      Maybe then some fans, and the pundits will take our challenge seriously.

      We took 11 points from 15 and are back on top again.

      The rivals will have a game in hand on us until they have played Game 36. So we have 5 chances to ask them questions and see how they respond.
