      Keith, welcome back into The Kop. You must look forward to these opportunities.  ;)

      Keith :  On the front line now eh ? 

      A bit of relevant success on the pitch and you've come out of the Mancs Forum.

      You're still going to need your tin hat mate when the rockets start being being inbound on you.

      Let the games begin !

      Always a big game when we play the Mancs.  Two biggest clubs in England.

      Still only three points on offer though.  Same as we played for against Leicester, West Ham and Bournemouth in our last three games.

      Despite what no doubt Sky will be having us believe in the next few days, I don't see the result here as absolutely crucial to the rest of the season as there are still so many games to go.

      They probably are in the better form but we do have a better team so let's hope that permanent class triumphs over temporary form.

      Win this and confidence goes sky high for you and your fans.

      I don't go along with this.  If it was four games to go and maybe our last three were at home then maybe that logic would apply but there's too much football left to play.  We've got the derby to come, Spurs and Chelsea in the not too distant future.  This weekend is nowhere close to being some sort of title decider.

                           Alisson
            Trent Matip VvD Robbo
              Gini   Fabinho   Hendo
             Salah   Firmino    Mane

      Hendo V Bayern put in a performance that made Jürgen's job easier, imo, that was his best performance in a red shirt and as close to a Gerrard example as your likely to see from our current skipper, 

      On a personal note, he put down a marker saying this is the level of play thats required,  and i sincerely hope he can deliver,  as consistency isnt his strongest point, superb stuff from Jordan,

      Despite Naby's recent upturn i think against the Manc's @ OT he hasn't quite got the nous to handle a midfield battle, he doesn't deserve to miss out but we can't afford a weak midfield against this lot,
      OGS has Manc's playing much better than Maureen had and will be tougher to crack, and as always form goes out the window irrespective of league position , however i can't see him parking any buses especially at home so that should favour us,
      Got to be honest I'd take a draw right now, but, a win would and could be the catalyst needed going forward,  its a massive game but certainly not a title decider.

      IF and its a big if we can click in the same way we did against Bournemouth and can be sharper in our final ball then I think we win this quite comfortably. I think the game against Bayern was a great tune up for the lads and I think we will be in perfect form for this.

      I'm going for 1-3 to us.

      Hard to leave Henderson out after his performance against Bayern, though Fab-Gini-Keita is our best three.

      Very clean job above!

      For some reason won't let me copy your bit about title decider. I didn't state it would be as also agree with you long way to go. Was just stipulating if you win this one confidence is going to be so high with the fans. You'll see this weekend if you win as the forum will go in meltdown. The server won't cope with the ecstatic fans going  wild.  ;D

      Out of interest - is  that based mostly on 90 mins versus Bournemouth or your preference?

      Gotta disagree. Winning at Old Trafford could be the catalyst we need to go on a run of games.

      It could also affect City. They will see this as a game we should be dropping points in.

      If we lose, who knows what the confidence will be like for a team that will then be second without a game in hand when only two weeks ago we could have been seven clear.

      Ok.

      Don’t agree but fair enough.

      I wanna see Fab, Gini & Hendo Sunday with Naby and Shaq as game changers off bench.

      Has a better balance for me - Naby’s defensive lines are still lousy.

      It's all about the right formula at the right time for me. We don't have to agree, that's sound. Just putting it out there.

      Naby is starting to look up to speed again, 1% better as each game comes around. Fabinho & Gini are spine players IMHO.

      If we lose and spurs win, they are only 2 f**king points behind.

      This is a crazy f**king league race.

      I honestly think I’ll go off sick with stress if Liverpool lose to United, it’ll be a nightmare watching those cu*ts celebrate with their city rivals, embarrassing. They’re using the tag #acityunited - that’s how embarrassing it is.

      It’ll be a huge psychological blow losing to these cu*ts.

      Agreed - I enjoy different views especially on selection as long as there’s a rationale.

      Naby is gonna be a monster but he does scare me a bit defensively (at the mo) the way he ambles and doesn’t seem sure where he should be in transition yet.

      Providing he has the lighthouse behind him (Fab). Defensive duties can be covered in some situations, not all. His risk-taking and footwork are his most valuable attributes going forward. We need that level of creativity on a more consistent basis.

      He's getting there. The rest will come. 😎
