      I was looking forward to see what our fixtures will be for August and September because with our front three playing ACON and Copa America I would think Klopp will be looking to give them a bit more rest and ease them a little more into the side early.

      Good point.  Although I think they will be involved from the start I do think we might not see all three of them in the same line up until maybe Arsenal?

      Should almost certainly be on the weekend rather than moved to Monday night.

      Champions League games for both sides in the midweek before.

      Not a bad set of fixtures, October could be tricky though, May too but on the whole it looks quite favourable IMO. Hopefully go into the season full of confidence from beating City first.

      Not keen on playing first on the Friday but if we get a good win then it straight away puts the pressure on City.

      So the leak was fake news.

      A tough fixture list in general. Southampton and Burnley away in the first 4 games, Chelsea and Spurs before the 2nd break, City just before the 3rd break. Spurs and the mancs during the new year hangover, City away in April, followed by the run in from hell really. The last 5 scheduled games are Brighton, Burnley, Arsenal, Chelsea, finishing up at Newcastle. Very tough at best.

      First time to play Spurs at home before Christmas in 12 years. While December looks favourable, the game at West Ham must be rescheduled because of our pre-Christmas break in Sheikhland. The home derby is in midweek for the first time since 2014, and it's the first game away on December 26 since 2014. We still haven't played in London on the date since 1991. First away game on the last day in 4 years.

      There are one or two positives, but all the posters telling us "it doesn't matter when the games are played", are the same posters who will be writing out what we need to do and when we need to do it in the run in, in threads such as "13 Games, Call it", and "The double, is it on?" For the rest of us, our nerves will be shot during the run in, May is not the best time to have to go to Arsenal, and Newcastle away is not the ideal place to go needing a result on the final day either. Chelsea lost 3-0 there 12 months ago, Spurs lost 5-1 a couple of years before that. Hopefully we'll buck the trend.

      Winning a league is never easy at the best of times. With Guardiola around, 15 points is all you can afford to drop just to have a chance to win it, that means needing 32-33 wins. 20 points dropped and you can try again next year. I didn't expect a kind fixture list and we haven't got one imo. To me, there looks to be more banana skins than bankers. We'll just have to make the best we can of it.

      Actually the topic was β€œThe next 13 games”, there was no calling it, it was listing our last 13 games. Try to get it right before trying to get at whatever it is you are aiming for and saying what posters will be doing what.

      Sorry but apart from the tricky Arsenal match what is so hard about that run-in compared tot he run-in we had last season?

      I think we have a nice start to the season, have a nice December, compared to Citeh, a tough January which could be make or break and the key game already is the City match in April, win or draw that one and we'll win unless Citeh have a sh*t season, fingers crossed!

      The run in is full of difficult away trips, in bogey grounds, where we have rarely won down the years. While the home games in the run in won't be guaranteed 3 points either. Several of them are likely to be fighting the drop as well. That is not even allowing for cups, Europe, and/or games in hand affecting things. You're also probably looking at three games a week, at some point(s) in the run in.

      Actually the topic was β€œThe next 13 games”, there was no calling it, it was listing our last 13 games. Try to get it right before trying to get at whatever it is you are aiming for and saying what posters will be doing what.

      Actually the topic is "The title race: call it", which was started around the same time as the other thread.

      There is more to a fixture list than "we have to play everyone twice, home and away". It's clearly better to play a game with a fully fit squad, than play it when littered with injuries and suspensions. It's clearly better to play a tough game when on a good run, than playing it on the back of three straight defeats, or 1 win in 6 games. It's clearly better to play City away when everyone is ready, than play it first with no points in the bag and several players not fully prepped, then lose and be playing catch up immediately. It's much better to have the last game at home if you need a result, than go and try and get it at a bogey ground. I don't know why other people can't see that, until it's too late. The last year we had a home game first and away game last, the away game was Gerrard's last game, and even though there was nothing at stake, people still talk about it.

      15-20 points is the maximum we can afford to drop if we want to win the league. Hopefully we'll finish the season on another long winning run, but it will be more difficult than last season.

      December

      Wednesday 4 – Everton (H)
      Saturday 7 – Bournemouth (A)
      Saturday 14 – Watford (H)
      Saturday 21 – West Ham United (A)
      Thursday 26 – Leicester City (A)
      Saturday 28 – Wolverhampton Wanderers (H)

      I think that some of this will be postponed because of the Club World Cup.

      For me, we need to play each team twice nonetheless so whenever we play them, for our philosophy is that we need to win nonetheless. We need 38 wins and we should go for them. We have the team to challenge City again because we have not lost an essential player.

      Can see 9/10minutes extra time next season. Get 2/3 VAR decisions, subs, injuries and it could drag on to a 100 minute game. Not liking what I've seen of Var. Think it will cause a stink. Could also affect the spontaneity of the game more than is expected.

      Would'nt be surprised to see a major rethink at the end of the season.Problem is you can't put the genie back in the bottle.VAR is arguable the biggest change since subs were allowed back in '65'66.See how it pans out but I have my doubts.

      I've got no problems with games going longer. Fed up of games only having 40-50 minutes of football. Time to take timekeeping out of the referee's hands.

      The final in 2018 was Dec. 22 so if this year's matches for Liverpool are Dec. 18 and 21, would it just be the West Ham match on the 21st that is postponed, or could either the Watford match on the 14th or the Leicester match on the 26th also be pushed back? Those festive season fixtures tend to be sacrosanct so if I had to bet I'd say it's likely just the one date. Ends up adding an extra match (2-1 = 1) and a lengthy airplane trip to what is already the most congested part of the season.

      But all of it means we're having the best of times on the pitch, so bring it on.

      If time was kept off the pitch would it be stopped for every dead ball situation? If so, would the official length of the match be shortened by a good bit from 90 minutes? I agree with you that way too much is wasted under the current setup, but if you use a separate timekeeper, some other questions would have to be asked, like these two.

      We had 6 minutes injury time v Spurs at home. No complaints.
      We had 7 minutes injury time v Everton at home. No complaints.
      We had 9 minutes injury time at Newcastle to survive. No complaints.

      That's just the second half. Nevertheless, we got through them with no harm done. We will get through as much time as we need to play again next season.

      We have been given the honour of holding the first ever league game in England with VAR. Once it's in, we're never going back to the era of clear Mane goals disallowed at Arsenal, costing us 2 critical points in the title race, again.

      Obviously the game will go on and come to a conclusion but there will be problems. I can guarantee controversy and it might well affect the flow of the game. I'm still undecided. Wait to see how it pans out week in week out.
