      Pre-Match: Liverpool v Norwich (9th August 2019 - 8pm)
      Aug 07, 2019 04:30:09 pm
      I figured it was time we got a pre-match thread going.  I have a feeling we are going to come out of the gates swinging.  5-0 win for LFC.  Salah with 2, Origi with 1, Bobby with 1, and Lallana with 1 off the bench. 

      Alisson
      Trent - Matip - VVD - Robbo
      Fab
      Hendo - Gini
      Salah - Bobby - Origi

      Can't wait for real footie to be back!!!!

      It wouldnt shock me, if Mane has come back in top top condition and starts the game, or is at least sub for last 20/30.

      Oh no Divock starts. Gonna raise some eyebrows here... for those who want him to be replaced.
      But I think Origi is good enough. Hope he does the job. Did alright for the Charity Shield.

      I'm a huge Divock fan, but he is not a left winger, and if we have to start him there it signals we are not strong enough in that position. He is far better centrally and should be the first one off the bench to give Bobby a break, but he is not suitable backup for Mane, IMO.

      If Bobby goes down we have Divock and Klopp has also used both Salah and Mane centrally in his absence, so we have 3 options.
      If Salah goes down, Mane can move to the right as he played there before or Shaq can fill in, so we have 2 quality options.
      If Mane goes down, we have to play Divock in a weaker position, or put a midfielder in that role. We have seen Keita, Lallana and Ox play on the left and all look equally subpar in there. We have no quality option.

      Just signed a keeper.Plenty of competition in defence and midfield.Little bit concerned about the strikers.Have enough for Norwich..(they are making sure Suarez has gone)..so 3 or 4-0 for me.

      In all honesty, Bobby is better suited on the left wing than Origi.

      I love Origi coming off the bench and filling that central role

      After the difficulties in pre-season I think we should be glad that our first PL game is both at home and against a newly promoted team.

      Expect a good bag full of goals and I wouldn't say no to the European Cup being paraded at Anfield.

      We don't play with "wingers".
      We play 3 attackers, with 1 central and 2 wider, and all three of them are in the box, when our fullbacks (who are our kinda wingers) put crosses in.

      How many times does this need to be said.
      It's like people didn't even watch us play the last few seasons.

      If he’s considered an option for Klopp. But I wouldn’t be surprised if the Chelsea game is his first back.

      If Origi scores important goals for us this season like he did last season he will do the job for me.I say to doubters give the lad a chance and give him your full support.

      Let's smash this lot, go Top of The League on GD after the first week and stay there for the rest of the Season.

      Let's hope we all suffer from sore necks this season......coz we been looking down at everyone else for the campaign.  :D :D :D

      Really hope we can carry forward that performance from the second half of the last game into this one. Norwich are suppose to be a more open and pressing side (from what preview shows say I don't follow the Championship too close) which should play in our hands. Bag a couple of goals early to take the pressure off and be nice to see Mane get some minutes off the bench to get his fitness back up after a short break.

      As far as line-up goes would like to see us with either Ox or Naby in the middle to give us a bit more attacking threat in the middle and Matip partner VvD as oppose to Gomez.

      ---------------Alisson-------------
      TTA----Matip------VvD----Robbo
      ----Gini------Fabinho---Ketia----
      Salah--------Firmno---------Origi

      Subs: Adrian, Gomez, Milner, Hendo, Shairi, Ox, Mane

      Should be a comfortable win, but as we've been conceding throughout pre-season, this trend may continue.  3-1 Firmino, Salah, VVD with the goals.
