      Don't know what's going on with Shaqiri. Are the stories about his laziness true? Was weird how he ran to hug Klopp after the Salah wonder goal on Sunday.

      Mate, he has had some niggles and rightly pulled out of int'l duty. Whats the point of playing someone half fit? Looks like he has been in full training only this month.

      Obviously didnt mean subs at HT. duh!

      Doesn't matter. Start with that team you said then throw Shaq sometime in the second half. That team of yours didn't have Shaq starting. Sub him in sometime in the second half.

      Cannot take it easy and piss around. Like Mario. We have 11 Players with a Mario mentality and we're dead. I'm sure the lads will be professional.
      Where did I say the team should "take it easy and piss around"??!!!

      I said I'M relaxed about it and that we'd get through comfortably!  Not sure what you think you're reading.

      Lol. It's not against you mate. You said one thing. And I said another. It's not aimed against you. It was meant as yeah, comfortable but not to the point where every player is too comfortable that they'll lose the ball. It's just a misunderstanding... Relax. Nothing against your post.

      We'll win it tonight. Let's go.

      I think they'll throw everything at us early on.

      Keep calm, defend well, don't give silly fouls away, but above all, KEEP CALM, and once the game settles down (assuming they haven't scored) we can take control of it.

      If they get an early goal, it could be a long night.

      Play like a training match then? And piss around? Take it easy. Look down on them. Walk in the park? No. Sometimes we get spanked when I see our players taking it easy with no urgency. Just a thought.

      I think there is a big difference between a fan taking it easy and the players. I am fairly sure Klopp will have the lads fully focussed on this match and getting the first goal.
      We will score at least one goal tonight, as they will have to attack, so that will mean them needing to score at least 4, if they manage that then we have no right to be in this competition.

      I Except from the start, a 10-15 minute all out attack from them. They will have their fans behind them. Bend, just don’t break.

      Wouldn’t an all out attack from them play into our hands?  It would make getting that ever important away goal that much easier with our counter attack.  I don’t see them scoring 4 goals no matter how they attack.  Their best chance is to keep us from scoring and hope to find 2 goals. At that point anything can happen in extra time and shoot out.

      I don't think he's saying the team should be relaxed, just that he is.

      I'm fairly relaxed too, don't see us having any real issues.

      If they come at us hard early, I think it will be to their detriment. That plays right into our hands and I could certainly see us nicking a goal or two off of them if they do that.

      It depends how far they can push us back and how well they keep the ball I think.

      Surprised to see Firmino rested, and Origi starting. Hadn't expected changes.

      Will be worth about five full paged in the match thread.  ;D
