      Just try and win on the night, those two injuries have probably ended whatever tiny chance we did have of turning the tie around.

      Getting a feeling Brewster might be in line for a shock start.
       

      i was gonna post about Brewster but didn't  fancy the crazy talk backlash!

      Maybe it's a plus but Dembele is out for Barca. I think he would have started to cause us problems on the counter attack. Surely we will go for it even more now.

      No Salah, no problem. In our CL history, we've had all the unlikely goalscorers. Sinama-Pongolle, Mellor, Smicer etc. Someone will rise up from within to get us the goals. Need I say more?

      Devastated with the loss of Salah and firmino. I love jurgens attitude though. It's 11 men v 11 men. Anything can f**king happen. And we have the magic of Anfield. Doesn't matter who goes out there tomorrow, the ground will be electric.

      For me the team picks itself.

      Alisson

      Trent
      Matip
      VVD
      Robbo

      Fabinho
      Gini
      Hendo

      Ox
      Shaqiri
      Mane

      And we'll f**king do these 4-0.

      Unfortunately it sounds like Ox picked up a slight knock and won't start. Our luck just continues to get better.

      Just don’t start Sturridge up top or we are essentially starting the game a man down with the amount of use he is. Put Origi through the middle and then Mane and Shaq either side. At least with Origi he will try and make life difficult for Pique and Lenglet.

      Sounds like Brewster will be making his debut in this game.

      Right now I cannot summon up any enthusiasm for this game, so sick with Citeh scraping yet another 1-0 against a team who think defending deep will work.
      I'm sure I'll be up for it tomorrow but right now I just feel numb.

      Actually I think Jürgen has the team in a great frame of mind. "Shock Barca or fail beautifully" is the challenge he has given them. I think they will be very relaxed and put in another good performance.  Heavy odds against winning the tie I know, but watch them give us a good show. And then on the weekend, still all to play for. All we can do is keep winning.

      You were absolutely right about Brewster.

      Klopp mentions a game he managed for Dortmund against Real Madrid, where they made eight changes from the first leg (3-0 loss) and it threw Real off and Dortmund won 2-0 and in his mind should have won. I don't know that we'll see this,, odds are against it of course, but I really think he has the team in a good frame of mind despite the odds being against us in both competitions.

      One thing we miss with Mo and Bobby out is out-and-out quickness in the forward third. Origi has pace if given time and space to pick up a head of steam, but he and Sturridge are not really dart-like in close spaces (like Mane is). I've only seen Brewster in highlights but I think he might bring this element (and yes, Shaquiri would as well) and that could be useful if Barca are playing a bit defensively with the big lead.

      So proud of this team's performance regardless of what happens the rest of the week.

      We’ve scored for fun in the past. Yes we don’t have Mo or Bobby, but you just never know. Hopefully Anfield will be at its raucous best and we will just have to see what happens.

      Istanbul was more impossible and that happen. The odds are stacked against us, but anything is possible in Anfield on a European night. An early goal will bring the kop to life and maybe it makes their back 4 a little nervy. Shaq, Origi, Brewster, and Studge will do everything in their power to ensure we sing songs of the night the Reds misfits shocked the world and beat Messi.

      Much crazier things have happen in this game. I'll hold out hope for tomorrow and Sunday. I mean why not?

      Same mate. With a full team we could give Barca a real scare but it's going to be very difficult just to get out of this match with a draw. We wont be a threat on the break and we wont make the ball stick up front.

      I think the squad will be a little exposed today.

      I’d like to see Mane, Origi and Shaq as our front three. I think Klopp will go for Studge though. As for the midfield were lacking Guile with Keita’s injury, I think he’ll play Gino, Gab and Milner.

      This game is all about getting the early goal. Score early and you never know.

      We have to score in the first 10 minutes and we MUST get closer to Messi.

      Do that, and we're in with a good chance.

      It’s a massive ask to have our team put in yet another massive display.
      All about the first 15 mins.
      Get a goal, put them under pressure and then we can build.
      2-0 just after half time and be smart.
      It can happen.
      Even missing Bobby and Mo is ok...as others have stated, an unsung hero and an intense atmosphere at Anfield can give us another memorable night at home.
      Even if we don’t make it past the brilliant Barca then we can be extremely proud of yet another great European journey.
      This season has been fantastic.
      If City and Barca are the two reasons why our season ends trophyless then so be it. We have been utterly fantastic and I for one am incredibly proud of my club, the players, the staff, the boss and also us fans.

      Mane
      Brewster

      Brewster for the unknown factor and 3 at back to counter the away goal threat. Gini looks knackered and the Ox, if ready, would want to make up for the lost time

      Half time in a Big European game, needing 3 goals in the second half

      Nope, not heard of any team doing that before  :f_tongueincheek:
