      TAA  Matip  Lovren  Robbo

           Hendo   Fab   Gini

          Mo      Bobby     Mane


      Pretty sure this will be the team, if all fit.

      I’ll go along with that. I liked Neur’s comments on how they won’t be intimidated by the Anfield atmosphere. Like music to my ears that. How many have said that down the years?...so many have learnt the hard way, let’s add Bayern to that list.

      Not sure what else was Neuer expected to say? "yea, we're going to go in there and panic"? And his comments from the article posted on this thread are pretty complimentary of Anfield.

      "We have heard a lot about the atmosphere in the stadium,” he told ESPN. “Everyone who watches football knows it's special, and I think they will be two great games.

      "For us, the Champions League is very important. It is a knockout tie, two finals. We are happy to play in their stadium.

      "It's the first game for me at Anfield. I'm looking forward to playing there.
      "Hopefully, it will be great night for us. But it depends on the result, of course."

      Obviously I’m not expecting him to say that and I’m not suggesting what he did say was derogatory towards us. What I was trying to say is that, the atmosphere could play a part, especially against a team who have not experienced it having last played Bayern competitively in the 2001 Super Cup if my memory serves me right. The fact that he has mentioned it in the build up is a plus for me.

      I’m sure Robben could shed some light to Manuel of what it was like in 2005 though!

      I'm going to assume that Lovren won't be fit, so in that case I haven't got a problem with Fabinho at the back.

      Crazy how in such a short space of time we've gone from desperate to get back into the Champions League, in it and go all the way to the final to now a match v Bayern Munich in the knockout stages which is not the most important game of the week.

      What a monster of a game.
      Fantastic stuff...European night against Bayern.
      I would, for the Bayern game go with:
      Alison
      TAA
      Matip
      Lovren
      Robertson
      Fabinho
      Gini
      Hendo
      Salah
      Mane
      Bobby

      And then for United go with:
      Alison
      TAA
      Matip
      VVD
      Robertson
      Fabinho
      Hendo
      Gini
      Salah
      Mane
      Bobby

      Prediction:
      We draw with Bayern 2-2
      We beat united 2-1

      Looks like Lovren is not going to make it.

      Fabinho Matip in defence (f**k sake Matip, don’t get injured in Marbella!)

      Keita Henderson Wijnaldum middle three.

      Klopp knows the Bundeslique pretty much while Keita had first hand experience playing their, so it helps a great deal. Bayern doesn't sounds corky to me and certainly beatable and it will be a great match. Again, we will be asking for an electric atmosphere from our fans.

      I will move Fabinho as centre back in place of Lovren and obviously I will add Gini.

      Just a question. Not trying to invoke a reaction or anything. When does it become viable to introduce Hoever into the fray?

      Obviously, not this year! In the pre-season next year. He should be nowhere near our squad to be honest. I'm not saying this because he is not a potential but for sure not up to stand at the moment to compete for the League or Champions League. It has nothing to do with his age.

      He'll probably be on the bench, but it doesn't really bear thinking about him at CB against Bayern Munich. He is a skinny wee kid. I'd probably play Trent or Hendo at CB if we were that desperate, but at the minute it'll be Fab n Matip if Lovren is out.

      I think Milner could also do a job at CB he seems to play well wherever he plays. I think Lovren will be OK but as long as we have our creative and goal scoring machine in full swing we wont need a CB.

      F**k that - Milner is not playing centre back. I absolutely love JM but that would be suicide in my opinion.

      I wouldn’t be too disappointed to see him in the midfield 3 though.

      Yea introduce a 17 year old in a knockout CL tie against one of the European giants, who’s made one single 85 minute professional appearance.

      Yea you’re not trying to be inflammatory at all.

      When Trent has scored an absolute worldie to make it 3-0.
      Then sub Trent off on 85 minutes for applause and bring on Hoever.

      Of course if the team is under the cosh and it 0-0 then probably never.

      And even at 3-0 you probably still not being him in given the importance of away goals.

      Hoever will have his day, but not against Bayern in the knockout rounds of the CL.

      Lovren was playing well before his latest Injury, real shame.

      Anyway, Fab will no doubt be moved to CB, so Hendo or Milner will partner Naby and Gini.
