      Pre-Match: Southamption v Liverpool (17th August 2019 - 3 p.m.)
      Aug 15, 2019 03:24:54 pm
      So in less than 48 hours we will be in another competitive match. A lot of comments in the SuperCup thread about how the team for this one will be difficult to select.

      Some questions:

      1, Will Naby Keita be fit for selection?
      2. Will Klopp rotate with a number of players having just gone 120 minutes on Wednesday (Virgil, Matip, Gomez, Henderson, Fabinho, Salah) ?
      3. Would he consider using kids Brewster, Hoever or Elliott in a match like this?

      Personally I love it when we have games so thick and fast as I don't have to wait for the next one (although I'm still reveling in the  trophy won last night). I suspect Klopp prefers one match per week, however.

      What are your expectations and thoughts on these and other questions?

      I think Klopp will have to rotate quite heavily for this match and Southampton would be a good chance to see some of the youngsters get a chance alongside Shaq, Lallana etc

      Don’t mind the games close together, some of our best performances last season were over the Christmas period when we had lots of games, think we won every game.

      If you are winning then you can’t wait for the next game so sure the players will be up for this.

      Training will have been lighter going into the game so I don’t think we will see wholesale changes. I’d expect Bobby will be on from the start, Gini will come in for one of Fab, Milner or Hendo (could be any given they were all terrible vs Chelsea) and Trent will come in for Gomez at RB. Who starts at CB with Virgil is anyone’s guess.

      Other than that, I can’t see too many changes. Would Salah drop out of the starting line up? Wouldn’t like to say but if he does then hopefully we go with Shaqiri.

      The less changes we need to make the better really.

      Can see room in the team for Lallana and Shaq, perhaps Origi too. Theres not much we can change at the back even if we wanted too. I think they all played a part last night except Lovren who we are trying to flog.

      It's good Klopp doesn't think like I do, he? Dude would be out of a job. Part of me would truly love to see some of the names on the sheet get a run though. After a crazy 5 days we need to explore options in our squad. 120 minutes is a MF. I think Lallana, Shaq, and Hoever could do a job. We need them too if we want any chance of winning the league and competing elsewhere

      In my opinion, the only question is whether Matip or Gomez partners VVD.  I'm guessing it will be Matip. 

      Adrian
      TAA - Matip - VVD - Robbo
      Fabinho
      Hendo - Gini
      Salah - Bobby - Mane

      Any win will do.  Just get the 3 points with no injuries.  We have a full week between this and the Arsenal match, so plenty of time to get tired legs fresh again.

      Matip for me, few wayward passes yesterday but his defending was excellent.

      I wouldn’t expect too many changes. I think we could see lallana come in for Fabinho (who looked shattered last night). Other than that it will be our strongest lineup I should think. Gini, Trent and Firmino all back into the starting line up. Seen and read a few posts suggesting Mo could be rested, like fook is that happening.

      Fingers crossed the lads aren’t too leggy though.

      I expect to see a couple changes to the side to keep some of the legs fresh after tough 120 minutes mid-week. Though i don't agree with it I have a feeling Salah will be dropped for this game with Origi given the amount of time Salah as played over past couple weeks. Soton did not look very good their first match getting taken to town by Burnley but I don't know what to expect but hope boys come out a bit sharper and kill this game off early.

      That maybe the one "odd" inclusion in the starting XI I could see happening. Jürgen may want to rest Fabinho after Wednesday. He wants to get some minutes for a few more players (he said before Wednesday) and before he said Lallana could play that spot in a match where we are likely to control most of the possession. Adam with Gini and Henderson, Milner or maybe Keita isn't impossible.

      But I do think we'll go with standard back four and 3 of our top 4 forwards, with maybe Salah going to the bench for this one.

      But you are absolutely right about the online meltdown.  :)

      Here's a radical idea why not play Lovren as CB,  he should be fresh as a daisy, along with whoever is fitter between VVD, Joe or Matip, perhaps play a different CB each half if they are all knackered.
      I'd play Trent as RB but at LB I'd maybe start Larouci or Hoever as Robbo looked knackered at the end on Wednesday.

      Midfield I'd definitely play Shaq and Lallana for freshness and again play Hendo/Fabinho one half each or perhaps Milner/ Gini.

      Attack is a bit more tricky, I'd play Bobby and possibly start Origi and Brewster and then sub in Mo and Sadio if needed.

      Adrian, Trent, Virgil, Robbo, Gini and Bobby all guaranteed to start in my opinion.

      That leaves either Gomez or Matip decision to partner Virgil. I would go Matip.

      I would bring a fresh Lallana into midfield. That leaves one spot to choose from and who has recovered best. God knows.

      Bobby will start. Will Klopp start both Salah and Mane who both played 100 + mins. Maybe one with Origi coming in?

      We're into the 2nd league game of the season; a tricky one away to Southampton & people are falling over themselves to make wholesale changes across the board!  It ain't happening!!  Two or three changes at the most.

      I honestly don't know what some people are thinking!  This is the league, the Holy Grail, not the Carabao cup ffs!!!

      Play Mane, Bobby and Mo upfront and make sure they get fed the ball from midfield.
      Sort that and at least one of those three will bag a couple of goals..
      It's the best forward line in the league !

      It's the Gomez/Trent areas that worry me slightly with that Betrand bombing down the wing whipping crosses in.

      Redmond thats him!.. meant to say him instead of Betrand. He's decent on the break.
      Always a shady team to play on their home ground.

      As some folk have predicted I expect to maybe see Lallana & shaq starting, Trent will be back in too.

      Possibly Origi starting.

      Salah played 120mins, expect him to be rested for at least 1st half.

      Possibly give Lovren a runout.

      Be interesting, he may also just go strong, as its 7 days till next game.

      I can see Lallana starting this one

      Yep.
      And in the nominal DM role in pre-season he did pretty well.

      If you want the DM doing sliding tackles, acting s a 3rd CB, keeping it safe, recycling possession and rarely stepping out, then Lallana wouldn't be the preferred choice.

      However, Lallana is an incredibly energetic player, never stops hassling and harrying, wins the ball a lot, is comfortable running with it, and has an eye for a (risky) pass.
      It may be more of a risk than some would like, but he's a fine footballer.

      I don't think he'll play there, but I do think he'll at least get some minutes.

      If it wasn't for the 120 minutes on Wednesday, then I would have said it would be a near enough full strength team, so this is going to be tricky. I think Shaqiri, Origi should start possibly even Brewster. The midfield and at the back will be the problem. Gini deffo, lallana if fit, keita is out. Maybe one of the youngsters. Ox only played 45 so possibly him. Trent will start, possible Lovren if fit and Adrian is looking dodgy to start at the moment so deffo a changed line up but I'm sure everyone will be assessed as there's a full week's break till the next game... Tricky.

                    TAA     Matip     VVD       Robbo

                               Lallana Millie

                                    Hendo

      Maximum subs used as well i think  as game management will be paramount in this one.

      We're into the 2nd league game of the season; a tricky one away to Southampton & people are falling over themselves to make wholesale changes across the board!  It ain't happening!!  Two or three changes at the most.

      I honestly don't know what some people are thinking!  This is the league, the Holy Grail, not the Carabao cup ffs!!!

      I'm basing it on our players falling over with cramp on Wednesday, if they recover in time for Saturday then great, that's even better.

      Don't think there'll be wholesale changes, a few knocks here and there will determine who plays or not,
      Player's are a lot fitter now than days gone by,and have their own fitness regime's for close season, so they are more or less good to go after pre season and a match or two, some rustiness may still feature for some, Ox in particular,.....

      .....                      Adrian
               Trent Matip VvD Robertson
                                Fabinho
                       Hendo             Gini
                     Salah Firmino Mane

      Can't afford to drop any points at all, that's the standard set from last season,  assuming City win V Spuds we have to match them at the least, 
      Dropping points this early only gives added impetus to them slimey kunts from Eastlands , not forgetting the w*nk fest from the pro Manchester media, and ends with extra pressure on us playing catch up,
      So it's win win win all season long and keep the pressure on Pep et al.


      1-2 to The most successful club in British Footballing history....FACT !!

      Some new manager was asked if he had a 5-year plan and replied "the 5-year plan is to win games or get the sack."

      After struggling to defeat Chelsea Wednesday, I reckon Jürgen is in jeopardy if we don't absolutely maul Saints tomorrow.

      Disagree mate, it was drawing games against this calibre of team that handed City the advantage last season, nothing other than a win is acceptable and let’s be honest, even our rotated team should be winning this match.


      Hopefully we play better than we did against them last time. But saying that, as long as the points outcome is the same then that’s the main thing!

      Wouldn't mind seeing something along those lines:



      - Chamberlain back in his preferred position
      - Wijnaldum can cover a game at #6 after both Fabinho and Henderson looked knackered plus Milner had a knock on his knee
      - Trent and Firmino both started on the bench so should be fresh
      - Robertson and Mane were taken off early, they should be good to go
      - Salah probably taken off for Origi depending on the scoreline

      If we need to score a late goal, can bring on Shaqiri / Henderson, if we need to consolidate a lead, can bring on Henderson / Fabinho.

      Saints looked sh*te against Burnley, we'll be fine.

      This is something I'm hoping to see. Our midfield on too many occasions can become stale...if that makes sense, very predictable too. We need Ox to start really kicking on with his come back and that isn't going to happen playing him out of position, get him in his best position and take the shackles off. For as good as Ox can be, versatility isn't his strong point because he will go missing and doesn't influence a game if he's out of position, it was his biggest downfall at Arsenal, being played out of position, so I don't know why we would consider making the same mistake. Plus, he'd love to dominate the game against his former team.

      May be our freshest option overall, save Origi in for Salah, which again might not be needed. I wouldn't mind seeing Ox straight back out there, but in midfield.

      I think so too mate but he still looks well short of his best form so I think Klopp will use him off the bench and in a he league cup until he can reach his top level or thereabouts. I’d be surprised if he gets the start today.

      Have a look around the bars and pubs? Bound to be one showing it cos it’s probably on beinsports or premier sports channels

      Did that last week and Wednesday today is strictly family time as last day . So going packing at 3 and just whizzing everything in which will allow some viewing 👌

      Why all the concern over rotation?

      Play our best 11 and go for it.

      They are fitter than we could ever imagine and can handle playing 2 games in 4 days.

      Great. Since no one has come out to oppose this “just/any win” view before KO, let no one after the match accuse those with this view of “lacking ambition/aspiration” or “not loving the club enough.”

      More so the players or Klopp for not trying after say for example 3-0 up... Because the select group here’s objective is just to get a win, ugly or not.

      Arsed about style, just get the three points.

      Why does it have to be in “style” - you don’t get any extra points , right now all that matters is getting three points whilst all the players get to full fitness

      For this game it's a question of getting the win any way possible. Going to be a very tough turnaround I feel.

      Some new manager was asked if he had a 5-year plan and replied "the 5-year plan is to win games or get the sack."

      After struggling to defeat Chelsea Wednesday, I reckon Jürgen is in jeopardy if we don't absolutely maul Saints tomorrow.

      Awww... that should hurt. To think I've been setting high standards as a fan, demanding perfection from the team. Lol...

      Should send that as a tweet to Moorsey, you might get a free ticket off him :laugh:

      So I take it you weren't impressed with winning number six, because it was won ugly and not in style.

      Can't have it both f**king ways like, know what I mean?

      Not when I just got out bed and still waking up. I couldn't give a f**k if I'm honest I just want a f**king win today ok Rees Mogg jnr?

      Let's call it what it is with being unsure about keeper situation, it's pre-match tension.
