      What a stupid day and time for a game!

      This one is not going to be easy with Saints fighting for their lives and it will be a cauldron of boos which is sort of understandable the way we have treated them as a feeder club over the recent years.

      All that said their is absolutely no need for the Uber conservative midfield we saw against Spurs, we should be good enough to win by a couple.

      I actually like Friday night footy!

      Hoping for a more attacking formation:

      Tricky match, this; back 5 & front 3 pick themselves. 

      Agree with OP's team but feel that JK will go with Fab, Gini, Hendo.

      Narrow, nervy unconvincing win on the cards again...

      From a watching on TV perspective it's fine by me.  For travelling supporters, all the way down to Southampton on a Friday night it is indeed a complete pisstake.

      I've got nothing really against a Friday night game but for the love of god these should be between teams no more than 50 miles apart I reckon - not the other end of the country. Same should apply to all Monday night games as well IMO.

      No idea why Southampton should be angry at us, we've swelled their coffers enormously in recent years, we haven't once instructed a player to run down their contract so that we could get the on a free.

      As for the game I think we will smash them, I sense a barnstorming game coming up and I think a lot of pressure will have been lifted after the Spurs game.

      Klopp needs to take the shackles off a bit, we can't have 6 more nervy games please!

      True, I was just thinking from the armchair. Here's hoping these or Brighton get relegated to lower the trips to the south coast for our fans next season ;D

      this. Its shocking the way away supporters are treated.

      It really could be easily avoided too.

      Hopefully a midfield of Fab, Gini and Keita. Hopefully we’ve seen the last of a Hendo, Milner and Gini combo.

      But, we don’t have all the information Klopp does so no point us guessing  :couch:


      Like every game now, don’t care how we do it, just get the 3 points. If that’s with a scrappy win then great, if it’s with a convincing win then great, the outcome is the same regardless of whether it’s convincing or not....mind you, convincing win might be a bit better for the heart.

      Not a fan of Friday night games, make me feel just as nervy as a Monday night game, but that said, at least if we get the win it’s a stress free weekend knowing it’s more pressure back on City.

      Back 5, usual suspects, Front 3, usual suspects and a midfield trio of Fabinho Wijnaldom and Lallana to weld it altogether ,

      Three points is all that matters,  don't care if its a scrappy ,ugly boring f**k up of a game, and a winning goal that rebounds off Bobby's bellend , just Get those points and ramp the pressure on Peppy & his wee Piggies  !!!

      Love it when it comes down to the wire in these closing games. It's win or bust. No room for any lack of urgency. Teams fight like cats and dogs to get to this position so we should relish these games. Hire wire act, drama at it's best footie wise.

      We will not be found wanting regarding courage. I expect a top performance and all things being equal we are better than Southampton F.C.

      I’m confident we will win this, although I don’t think it will be a mauling. A decent performance with a clean sheet and two goals from Mo and one from Mane.
      Usual back 5, usual front 3, and a middle of Hendo, Fab and Keita.

      Think Gini has struggled lately, and Millie looking a bit weary. Hendo wasn’t great v spuds but he does offer a lot of energy, leaving the football skills to Fab & Keita.
      Shaqiri, Lallana on the bench with Millie and Gini and hopefully Ox and Big Joe !

      Good to see mancs got beat last night, they really gonna have to go for it v city to stay in the top 4.
      Seems wolves have got the measure of them. Hoping they beat Watford in the cup as well so their minds will be on the final when they play us 😁

      Good luck to all the traveling reds, long old journey for an evening game, and FA / Sky should be lynched for arranging this !

      Yea, cant see the brexit MF (as the haters call it ;D) starting again for a while.

      Fab. holding with probably Gini & Lallana

      Field all the ex-players. VVD, Lovren, Clyne (not possible now), Adam, Sadio.

      Ok insufficient players. Let's play the Sunderland players. Same colour anyway. Migs and Jordan.  ;D

      I see no other way of us winning the league bar we win all remaining six games.

      If we draw even once we need City to drop points in two games and I just don't see it.

      Friday night away under lights and they will be up for it. I'd go with:

      Yep we are now seeing the importance of the goal difference being in Man Citys favour and it now being obvious it's going to stay in their favour. It is an extra buffer in real terms, if it were in our favour we could perhaps afford one draw as it is we can't and in playing all out to win at some point we may find ourselves over committing and losing. That was nearly the case against Spurs, in reality they should have put us to bed on 3 separate occasions at 1-1 but they weren't able to do it.

      We may as well lose as draw so on the flip side it could be argued our all or nothing attitude gained us 2 points at the end against Spurs when in previous games Klopp has only made like for like substitutes.

      GD is 9 isn't it so it isn't completely out of reach!

      We've still got Cardiff and Huddersfield left to play who have conceded a truck ton this season, 2 4-0's and we are right back up there on goal difference ;D City don't have any opponents left who will roll over and have their belly tickled.
