      Prioritizing the league & CL is obvious, but I would love to see us give the Domestic cups a little more attention.

      In defence of last season I think we didn't have the easiest of ties in either competition.

      If we had City's opponents then I'm sure we would have done a lot better.

      For sure. Chelsea and Wolves were tough draws.

      Seriously, you would require a crystal ball for this call. If it falls over a congested period of games and / or it conflicts with any other trophy runs. Then I for one would either spew it, or send the bench / reserves.
      Coming up to the Christmas congestion as well, FM it could be a decision we live to regret?

      Totally wrong attitude, this is a big trophy, you only get to be in it by winning the CL so we should really focus on winning it, even at the expense of the league cup or FA cup.
      Anyway By December we'll be 6-7 points ahead of Citeh and comfortably through to the knockout stages of CL and final rounds of the League cup :-)

      Should be clearly last in our targets next year and a definite run out for fringe players which will also give players a rest who need one

      Yup, we had rubbish draws in both cups. whereas City cruised through with easy draws. Be nice for us to get some easy draws this season.

      We will go to win it obviously, but what players are used will be decided on fitness and how many games we have in December. It could be a crazy month if were still in the league cup.

      I'm all for rotating players, especially in the semi final where we will probably facing the equivalent of a league 1 opponent, but for the final we should play a strong team and really try to win this.

      Got to go for it, but it is in the way. Hopefully we will have an easier than normal champions league group and we will have qualified by the time this comes round.

      Real Madrid's two games was the week before Christmas last year.  The last CL group game was the 11th December so I'd imagine that would be the schedule once again.

      It would definitely impact at least one and likely two Premier League games.  I think Liverpool will look at who the opposition is around the 16th December and then decide whether they will miss one or two PL games. 

      It could be a crazy month if were still in the league cup.

      Yep if we got to the quarter final in that then that would need re-arranging.

      As expected will be played before Christmas.

      Tournament dates are the 11th December to the 21st December but LFC's games will be

      Semi-Final 18th December and
      Final or 3rd place play off 21st December

      We were due to play West Ham away on the 21st December so that will have to be shifted.

      We are due to play Watford (H) on the 14th December and then Leicester (A) on Boxing Day.  Can't see these being affected.

      Only other game that could be affected would be a possible League Cup Quarter Final.

      The semifinal for this we should be able to field a lineup similar to some.of these preseason games and still advance, then use the first XI for the final vs the South Americans. Should not use our main players twice at this event.

      yeah I agree, it shouldn't really be to disruptive to our season and should be another piece of silverware.

      Which line up exactly?

      The one v Seville, that we lost.
      The one v Dortmund, that we lost.
      The one v Lisbon, that we didn't win.

      We have to take this seriously and play our strongest team. If we do, we'll win the tournament. It's 2 games in perfect weather conditions. Alternatively, if we would rather sacrifice being World Champions just to play West Ham, we have to not win the European Cup. And who wants to do that?

      10 games in 29 days in December then.

      Could really do with starting the Champions League group well so that we're qualified by the time that last game comes around. Would be a handy break for a few of our key players.

      Does that sound remotely like something we would do! ;)

      By the time it comes around, the group will be finished. I can see the Watford game brought forward to the earliest possible ko that weekend.

      The tournament is unofficially designed for the European and South American champions to play out the final, as they always did before it expanded. Doesn't always quite go to plan, but only teams from those continents have ever won it, and it's 7 years since the Europeans didn't.

      Aside from all that, there is another space on the Wall Of Champions ready to be filled, just in time to show it off to the opposition for the big home league game in January.
