      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.
