      I agree, but not sure about Ox, I think he needs to be eased back into the team, I'd start Fabinho, Hendo and Gini in midfield.

      No chance milner or hendo arnt starting. I can see both starting tbh. they both deserve to start a final together. but probably 1 will start and 1 will be sub.

      I fully expect Henderson to start.
      I'd love to see Ox, which is why he's in there.

      I always lose finals and since last UCL final is refused to do it and we won and the Community shield I did it and we lose again. I have decided not to do any more finals. No way I will cause Lfc any more issues.

      However, I think this will be easy for us if we do have a right mentality.

      An important piece of silverware... This is just a showpiece for the UEFA fat cats and I hardly think we'll be remembered at the end of the season for winning the Super Cup. I know all trophies can be important but at the risk of losing some of our big names, which we've lost two already, I'd be inclined to concentrate on the domestic cups and Champions League. Yes we risk losing players to injury in league games aswel but that's part and parcel of the domestic season. I'd just rather not risk them from the start in this cup.

      try telling that to players, and ex players who have won this back in the day. ;-)

      This is a trophy. The prestige of it doesn't matter - its not a friendly.

      winning breeds winning.

      Why does the club celebrate how many times we've won it then?

      Don't know how long you have supported this institution fella but my guess is not very long,
      Liverpool FC exists to win trophies always have always will, it don't matter what it is or it's importance,
      Fact is it's another piece of silverware and perhaps a little more European prestige added to our already illustrious European history,

      It may not mean much to you laddie but it means a damn sight to the club, our players and of course the fans who sacrifice time and effort to go to watch home and away,

      I cannot understand why you as a so called fan can be so dismissive of the chance to win trophy that can only be played for by Champions of the two main European competitions,

      Its not the community shield,  and it's certainly not the Mickey mouse cup,

      We have another trophy to compete for later in the year thanks to us winning the CL, are you going to dismiss that too, just incase someone gets injured?

      Dunno bout you pal but most LFC fans welcome the opportunity to play in such a unique match, and hopefully win it, cos that's what we do ?

      I have to ask, is Scott Minto known for having a crack habit?

      Because it's the only explanation for this;

      The scoreline doesn’t reflect the actual quality on show (or lack of), both teams played crap and if they weren’t playing each other, I expect both teams would be level on 0 points after week 1. United just happened to take their chances.



      I feel unnervingly confident about this
      game.

      Figured he wouldn't play today after leaving early yesterday. Hopefully this doesn't become a long-term thing.

      I hope its a 4-4-2 diamond with Mo and Mane as wide forwards and Ox at the tip. But we also saw Ox playing in the wing during pre season. So it could be a 4-1-4-1 as well.
