      Two of the best keepers, left backs and centre backs in the world facing each other, sounds good doesn't it ?

      I'd rather barca had a host of injuries like they had early in season. Our luck everyone I's fit for them. Need watch messi he get the ball out wide to alba or Roberto and raktic likes to burst into the box. Then just messi suarez dembele coutinho to keep quiet. Guna be very difficult but we need to be on our toes for 90mins.Hope firmino is back 100%.. Come on boys. Might be our only chance to win a trophy

      It's a shame both teams haven't got some of the best attacks in world football as well. ;)

      Should be a belter.

      There, I've jinxed it now, everyone put your money on a 0-0!

      8 finals isn't it?  Lost in 85, 2007 and last year.


      I stand corrected, you are right,  maybe I was getting ahead of myself 😉

      Dont think Bobby is starting or even on the bench. Probsb be back for newcastle.

      Big loss, but hes no good carrying a muscle injury, rushing him back will make it worse.

      could mean a formation change or just start Origi.

      Really hope Bobby is fit for this. His press against a team that takes chances passing out at every opportunity from the back could be massive.

      If he is not, I'd be tempted to play Mane through the middle with Salah and Keita either side. I don't trust Origi, Shaq or Sturridge for this.

      Lets hit these fuckers on the break at every opportunity and get an away goal or two. Then Anfield to finish them off. Up the Reds!!!

      TBF, you may be onto something there. Klopp may replace Bobby with a MF player.

      Milner would probably be his goto guy, for solidity away from home.

      4-1-3-2

      - Trent - Matip - VVD - Robbo -

      ------------ Fab -----------------
      ----- Hendo - Milner - Gini -----
      -------- Salah - Mane ----------

      Just my thoughts, Naby could start as a 10.

      I don’t think Barca can stand up to our physicality. We need to impose our will on them and make everything hurt.

      I'm going for a 2-2; lots of goals and end-to-end action.

      Impossible to stop Messi on his day but hope we can contain him as much as possible.

      Going for a midfield of Hendo - Fab - Milner because:
      1. Milner will cover Robbo when darting forward and I fancy him to make a few strong challenges on Messi and co :f_tongueincheek:
      2. The trio of Trent, Hendo and Salah has been awesome in recent games and it will cause Barca big problems.

      Away goal as ever is crucial for us, I'd still fancy us at Anfield even if we are taking back a 2-1 loss. We just need to stay in the tie.

      All I know heading into this Match is that we are capable of at least creating 5 or 6 chances per game. It's up to us to stick as many of those chances in the back of the net, as possible.

      Gonna be one hell of a game.

      The Wife organised my 30th birthday meal for tonight with all the family. At 6.45.

      No TV in the place so there'll be no starters or desserts for any of the cu*ts, I'll be making sure of that, so we're out sharp.
