      Confident about this one. We'll win this quite easily. Had there been Sarri, then I would've seen it as a tough fixture, but with new manager and no Hazard, they'll be fu**ed.

      Crazy to get rid of Sarri and replace him with Lampard in his second year of management with no transfers and the loss of their main player in attack and defence.
      I really think Chelsea will struggle this year and unless they play much much better on Wednesday than yesterday then we will beat them quite easily.
      BTW I do agree they will probably play better on Wednesday but I also think we will.

      After getting that f***in monkey off our backs I expect and want us to become proper Greedy bas**rds and win every bit of silverware on offer, now I don't give a shiny sh*te what or who our opponents are, they are simply in our f***in way and we need to deal with them accordingly,  for me that's to Gegenpress the actual sh*te out of them and be utterly and totally f***in ruthless, 

      My Greedy bas**rds for Wednesday are.....
                              Adrian
             Trent Gomez Virgil Robbo
                 Hendo Fabinho Keita
                  Salah  Firmino  Mane

      If you haven't already noticed the pro Manchester media are w*nk festing over City and Scum after only 90+mins, it seems that we are not going to trip the light fantastic in their eyes, So let's give them something to think about by upping our already European prestige by winning this Trophy,
      Can't see Lamps kids giving us too much bother....

      You're right. Hazard was the main attacking threat, and with him gone, they're quite flat up top TBH. I haven't really seen much of Pulisic, will probably take some time to adjust to the PL.

      We should be winning this comfortably.

      Chelsea were awful yesterday Zouma is a massive liability in defence for the Chavs.

      I predict 3 nil.

      I don’t think it’ll be easy as some are predicting, the 4-0 loss may just have been the early wake up call Chelsea need..

      We have enough firepower & quality to win the cup & it’ll be nice lifting another European cup by beating another London team..

      2-0.

      Cant get my head around that attitude. After seeing us lift 1 trophy since the 2011 league cup final, it's time we started putting that right.

      We have to be greedy for trophies.

      It would be nice to add another number to that trophy total on the wall at Anfield. I expect this game is going to be a little tougher but we take our chances early we could do what Manure did to them on Sunday.

      As far as the line up is concerned I expect to see a couple changes from the side that beat Norwich.

      ----------------------------Adrian-------------------------
      TAA---------------Matip---------VvD----------Robbo
      ------------Keita-----------Fabinho------Gini--------
      --------Salah------------Firmno--------------Shiqiri

      This is a big trophy. no doubts, only way to win it, is if you win champions league.

      Lets smash them.

      I can see a wee bit of rotation tbh. Mane & milner to start, possibly Matip too.

      You can make the case for the charity shield being a friendly but how on earth can this be considered a friendly after the season has already started and when it can only ever be between two teams, the winner of the CL and the winner of the Europa League???

      We get it that you are to cool to be bothered about it, but perhaps you'll allow us to get excited at the idea of winning another trophy, which we won the right to compete for by being CL winners.

      It’s a friendly in all but name - simple as that , it’s the same as the community shield

      I would rather protect the players and play a second string team

      Think Matip would make the team more solid and Keita or Ox would give a bit more from midfield.

      Its the highest profile friendly in the world then.

      LFC have a proud history of winning this.

      I also cant wait for the club world cup too, weve never won that, its about time we did.

      Interesting you should say this, as I've been looking at our defense.

      Gomez is quick.
      Very quick, and as a result of that, is much keener to step forwards, knowing he has superb recovery pace.
      The problem is that it upsets the line, and has a knock on effect.
      The first knock on effect, is that VVD (quite naturally) wants to keep the line straight, and so goes to step up in line with Gomez, but he also knows that the line is getting too close to the midfield, and that gives the opposition a jumbled line to play through instead of 2 banks.

      The second knock on effect, is that as well as upsetting the line, it leaves a hole behind Gomez so it becomes difficult to support TAA, and he regularly gets targetted, so this becomes an issue, becuse Gomez is also stepping up into midfield territory (see above) and slightly disrupting our defensive (MF) options.

      It's not a major issue, and is one that will soon be eradicated as Gomez gets more playing time, and gets back in sync with his defensive colleagues.

      Matip, on the other hand is very good at holding the line, along with VVD.
      He only really steps up to break opposition lines with one of his runs, when there is plenty of space in front of him, which allows a CM to come in behind and cover until he gets back in position.

      Persnally, I'd probably keep going with Gomez, because that's how he will get it right sooner.
      He has not played much (apart from training) with Fabinho in front of him (or to the side etc), so he needs to get used to Fabinho's style, in which he is very good at floating across the space in front of the CB's, to snuff out threats.
      In other words, stop getting in his f**king space.  :laugh:

      It's just early season teething toubles.
      All very minor and easily fixed.

      On Friday, it ws very noticeable, how in the second half, we used a press to push the opposition attackers onto the other flank, taking the pressure off Gomez and TAA and letting VVD and Robertson bear the brunt of the defensive work, leaving TAa much more leeway to attack, without getting ganged up on.

      As regards the Super Cup, no Hazard, a defensive liability in Zouma, a team getting used to a different style of play, all means I think we can turn them over.
      I don't think it will be easy, but I think we have more than enough to get the result we wnt.
