      Pre-Match: Liverpool v Watford (Wed, 27th Feb 2019 - 20:00)

      Wednesday night, we are back at Anfield. New game, new points to win. Hopefully, we'll get some good news on Bobby and he'll be fit for this one. Watford have won their last 3, so confidence is probably high in their camp. All the lads should turn up for this one, score a few and make us forget yesterday's frustrations. 

      Onwards and upwards Reds and we go again!

      Quite simply we have to win this game and I think we will, quite comfortably as well. There has to be a reaction from yesterday and Klopp has to get the midfield more attacking by playing Keita in the advanced role. Individually I love all three of Hendo, Gini and Fabinho but as a unit they are to defensively minded, same as Hendo, Gini and Milner.
      We are crying out for some creativity in the middle.

      Never really like Watford. No reason really.Might be the Elton John connection. Not a fan. Plus they are a London mob. Like to see us give them a good thumping...get the United frustration out of our system.

      14-0 for me.

      Always had a bit of a soft spot for them, probably because they've not been a threat and we got Barnes from them.

      Pretty much the team I wanted for United bar Firmino probably missing out.

      Two big games coming up. Time to reignite our season Reds!

      I honestly don't care who starts, just pull on a red shirt and do your job and get us three points. At this point, they should all be capable of performing to the required standard. Just go do it. We are better than Watford for days, no reason we shouldn't be showing it.

      Assuming that we will rest Firmino. We simply need to win and I believe we will.

      What sort of dickhead outlook is that? Because I dont believe 2 players deserve to be handed starts due to stature i dont want us to win? Theyve been sh*te lately being dropped might be the kick in the arse they need, maybe they might even come off the bench and do something

      Not sure you drop the joint top goalscorer of the prem mate, he finds the back of the net eventually.

      Also, Mane up until the Bayern game had been back in form, scoring when we have needed him to.

      Not sure these two have been as bad as some are making out, although I do believe the whole team needs a kick in the arse right about now.

      Theyve been way off their best for me but they have no fear to push them. They know they just get picked anyway. Id love them bothbto be dropped and told its for form. Then about 55 mins into the game throw both on and see a reaction...telling you it would be visible and that would bendfit all of us

      It wouldn't benefit anyone on here as an out of form and rhythm Lallana does 83 Cruyff turns for 55 minutes as it's 0-0 when he's hooked

      If we had something decent to change them with could see the logic but
      Lallana hasn’t hardly played and that’s when he’s been fittish , you want to start Shaq who at the first sign of it getting physical against Watford which it will , will disappear into the shadows , then you want to throw in the goal scoring phenomenon Origi
      So you want to play a lone striker who doesn’t score , one who disappears when it gets burly , and a fancy flick machine who’s hardly started in two years ,
      No logic in that for me .

      Keita is our future, so I want Keita to develop, so he needs minutes. I want Moreno to try if he can bring more explosiveness 'cause he's more dynamic than Robbo. I want Sturridge because of his distance shot and header quality, if he sucks bring Shaq around 70th min.

      Wait, first you want to replace Salah with Zaha and now replace Robbo with Moreno.

      If we don't win this ......then quite frankly we don't deserve the title.

      They were impressive on the last outing and there are a couple of players ...other than Deeney ...to keep quiet.

      Lets hope we get back to some Rock and Roll football.

      3-0 Reds.

      I think there may be some truth to the dig other fans have about Salah not turning up in big games and i just think that is down to him being doubled up on by better players than the lesser teams.

      I fully expect him to get a goal or two in the next couple of games.

      My team for this game would be the below (assuming bobby is out), was tempted to chuck Shaqiri in for Gini and have Salah out on the right with Divock or Danny up top but I think that would be asking for trouble against Watford, leaving us to vulnerable on the counter.

                               Alisson

      Trent          Matip            Van Dijk            Robbo

                               
                                Fabinho                                 
                  Gini                             Keita

      Shaqiri                  Salah                  Mane
