      We shouldn't need to be at peak to win this, our form in December should be easily good enough as long as we take it seriously.

      Could be taking the South American sides for granted but I doubt they will be used to our pressing game and quality.



      Fazakerly, I seriously doubt they would have faced anything like us , the intensity of our play will have them bamboozled and not knowing whether to stick or twist, assuming we’re not going there  for a jolly Jürgen will have the lads ready and take this opportunity for further silverware very seriously, the boys themselves will want to perform and prove that they are one of the best club sides if not thee best side this side of the Milky Way.

      Looks like we play Monterrey, CONCACAF champions from Mexico if early round games go by form. South American champions will await in the final.

      Just looked them up and their league season finishes on the 15th December before it goes to playoffs.

      They're 11th out of 19 after 9 games so don't look like they are doing particularly well.

      Since they play two seasons per year, it is not unusual for the Mexican clubs to take a season off, so to speak. This team would struggle to deal with us at full throttle over 90 minutes, and they don't defend so well. Their strength is in drawing and executing set pieces.

      Just FYI

      Qatar 2022 World Cup venue to host Liverpool games at Club World Cup

      Liverpool's matches at the Fifa Club World Cup in Qatar will be played in a stadium built for the 2022 World Cup.

      The new Education City Stadium in Doha will host Liverpool's semi-final on 18 December - the same date as the final of the next World Cup will take place.

      Fifa has moved the World Cup to a new slot in winter because of the oppressive summer heat in Qatar.

      The Gulf nation is currently hosting the World Athletics Championships, which have suffered from low crowds.

      The Club World Cup will be the next major event there, with Liverpool taking part as Europe's representatives, having won the Champions League in May.

      Jürgen Klopp's Premier League leaders automatically go into a semi-final where they could play local side Al Sadd, managed by Spain great Xavi, Hienghene Sport of New Caledonia or Mexican side Monterey.

      They will remain at the 40,000-seater stadium for either the final or third-place play-off on 21 December.

      Did you check out any of the atmosphere in that River-Boca match? I've been in both of those stadiums and it is some kind of experience.

      Of course in Qatar our fans will have the chance to show their quality of support again. I wonder how many will travel.

      We're supposed to be getting an allocation, it's just waiting on information from th club. Some tickets have been on sale exclusively to Visa creditcard holders and also Qatar Airways have been offering deals including flights.

      Those early round games (think New Caledonia champion vs. Qatari winners, tend to be sparsely attended. These may be the nicest-looking empty stadiums we'll see.

      Am sure I’ll get into it once it starts but I’m afraid I’m not the least bit excited about this competition. Hope I’m completely off the mark but I am struggling not to see it as a huge pain in the ass and potential disruption to our title challenge.

      I understand the argument in the other thread that a day at Wembley for a cup final is preferred to a trip to Qatar.

      I will say, the possibility of us playing a match vs. Flamengo or River Plate is an appealing one to me. For those who think it would be a corporate friendly, know that to these South American teams it would not be.

      If we go full rotation (think last night's team) for the semifinal against Mexican champions, that will be a tough test as well.

      A match against River or Flamengo, if in a decent location & reasonably accessible for both sets of supporters would be an unbelievable spectacle. Which is even more of a crying shame that the game that the tournament is being held in a Sharia Middle-Eastern country. Missing out on the prospect of a once in a lifetime atmosphere

      They did have some sort of general sale for Visa cardholders (basically anybody who has a bank account) the other day. 20 odd thousand tickets were sold & 16% of those were bought in the UK. I'm guessing the vast majority of that 16% will be Liverpool supporters so could see up to a few thousand over there. Unsure why they didn't just up the allocation though.

      Info from FIFA website below


      "A total of 24,211 tickets to the FIFA Club World Cup Qatar 2019™ presented by Alibaba Cloud were allocated in the first 24 hours of the Visa Presale phase. Fans residing in Qatar and the United Kingdom booked their seats in the biggest numbers (respectively accounting for 60% and 16% of the tickets allocated), followed by buyers from other countries in Europe, South America and the Middle East. The most popular match was unsurprisingly the grand finale taking place on 21 December, to which all 10,085 tickets made available in this sales phase have been snapped up.

      Moreover, with the exception of Accessibility Tickets, all Visa Presale ticket inventory for the semi-final between Liverpool FC and the winners of Match 2 has now been allocated. However, Visa cardholders still have until 31 October at 13:00 CET (15:00 Doha time) to exclusively secure their tickets for the other three matchdays. These comprise the opening match between hosts Al Sadd SC and the OFC champions Hienghène Sport, plus two double‑headers: the second round, featuring the clash between the AFC champions and CAF champions ES Tunis, followed by the encounter between Concacaf champions CF Monterrey and the winners of Match 1; and the play-off for fifth place, followed by the CONMEBOL Libertadores winners’ entry into the fray in the first semi-final."

      So will Liverpool supporters potentially be seated in the same sections as River Plate or Flamengo ultras?

      WHAT could go wrong?

      Maybe can't get a flight from some of those places. would have to fly to a separate location and book a separate flight maybe?

      You are right that the penalty (think immediate penalty, like) in a place like that might discourage any hoolie action from going down.  But when the guy behind you is slagging your team....you never know.

      When you look at the side that beat Arsenal, that's not really too difficult to envisage.

      The bigger issue will be the coaching staff. While we can make 11 changes on the field and have a handful of others filling out the bench, we can't rotate our management team. So either Jürgen has to choose which one he'd rather manage or he's got to be in two places at once.
