      This is Anfield!

      Unbeaten at home in the prem since April 2017.

      Unbeaten at home in Europe in JK's entire reign.

      A place where the might of Barcelona turn up with the best player in the world, leading 3-0, only to return to Catalonia crumpled & crushed.

      A cathedral where a bunch of kids can line up, trail 1-3, 2-4 & 4-5 in giving away 5 goals and still come away with the victory!

      THIS IS ANFIELD!!

      Id go World Club Cup, more exposure worldwide and more prestigious, plus I'd guess more money.

      Not sure about that. If we played Man United in the final of the League Cup it would dwarf the WCC in terms of worldwide viewers

      Yep same here. Competition doesn't sit right with me in general, ran by FIFA, played in dodgy parts of the World etc.

      I was reading that when Utd had to drop out of the FA Cup to play in it, they initially wanted to drop out of the WCC instead. In the end they dropped out of the FA Cup because they were more or less blackmailed by FIFA who told the FA that England's 2006 World Cup bid would be hampered if they refused. Whole thing just stinks if I'm honest

      Facts:

      Half the team can't legally play GTA.

      Attendance: 52,694
      Crazy when you think that the paying fans knew it would be a reserve team, and City could not even fill their ground for an EPL game at the weekend.

      If we field the same team as yesterday then why would it be a problem, we really could effectively play two matches at the same time.

      No we can't. The senior players in that team need to go to Qatar as back up.

      Quote from TameImpala
      What a game that was - Took my girlfriend & her little brother for their first game so couldn't have written a better script myself!

      Really hope we don't bin this competition off - In a perfect world we'd bin that World Club Cup off instead - glorified corporate exhibition matches played in a human rights abusing backwards hovel of a Country. I know it's not the most prestigious trophy but I'd take League Cup games under the lights and an opportunity for a Wembley trip over that sh*te anyday!

      Obviously there's going to be financial benefits to playing in the World Club Cup as well as the issue of staying in the good books for the likes of FIFA (as corrupt and backwards as they are). Just devastating that it has to come at the expense of a competition which gives great experience to our fringe players and more importantly in my opinion, an opportunity for younger fans / families to get to games

      That's effectively saying you don't want to win the European Cup. If you don't achieve that, then you don't have to worry about playing the WCC.

      But we did win the European Cup, and therefore I want to win the World Club Cup to go with it. I don't care how backwards the host nation is, that's for someone else to bang their head over. We're a football team with a job to do there and hopefully it will be a successful job.

      I want the League Cup also, there is no choice in my mind. For far too long, this club has prioritised this cup over that cup and won no cup. In 6 months time, I want us to be English, European, and World Champions, with the trophies in our cabinet, the medals in our pockets, and the badges on our shirts to show them off to the rest of the world. That's a perfect world to me.

      That's not what I was saying at all & it's ridiculous to suggest I did. If we don't manage to get our quarter-final rearranged then we are going to forfeit the League Cup. We can't play in the midlands on the 17th & then in Qatar the day after, these are just simple facts. It's easy to say "I want to win everything" but if this is the case then it's literally impossible. If we manage to rearrange the League Cup game to a manageable slot then sound. But if we don't (which is certainly a possibility), I'd rather forfeit the WCC. That's the only point I was making

      Just out of interest, if you could pick one would you take the League Cup or the World Club Cup?

      I'd go League Cup all day long.

      The trophy we've never won before.
      Day out on the ale at Wembley against potentially Utd/Everton/City or a trip to a country where they lock people up for being homosexual to play a team you've never heard of. Tough question!

      Wembley's a f**king shithole though, not even a patch on Cardiff.

      As said it's the World Club Cup for me, get it f**king won and on the wall!!

      I know Cardiff was much better than Wembley but it's not a Cardiff v Wembley debate is it? I was talking about Wembley v Qatar. Absolutely insane if you'd rather make that trip than have a day at Wembley

      Just to point out there literally is no other date to put the League Cup quarterfinal in before that week presently slated for the semifinals in January. Starting this weekend:

      Saturday Nov. 2 - Aston Villa
      Midweek - Genk at Home in Champions League
      Sunday Nov. 10 - Man City at home in Premier League

      International Break Nov. 11 to Nov. 22

      Saturday Nov. 23 - Crystal Palace away in Premier League
      Midweek - Napoli at home in Champions League
      Saturday Nov. 30 - Brighton & Hove Albion in Premier League
      Midweek - Everton at home in Premier League
      Saturday Dec. 7 - Bournemouth away in Premier League
      Midweek - Salzburg away in Champions League
      Saturday Dec. 14 - Watford at home in Premier League
      Midweek - at Club World Cup in Qatar
      Saturday Dec. 21 - at Club World Cup in Qatar
      Midweek (Boxing Day) at Leicester City in Premier League
      Sunday Dec. 29 - Wolves at home in Premier League
      Midweek (Jan 2) - Sheffield United at home in Premier League
      Saturday/Sunday Jan 4-5 - FA Cup 3rd Round
      Midweek OPEN when League Cup semifinals 1st leg are scheduled.
      Saturday Jan. 11 - Spurs Away in Premier League
      Midweek OPEN - when League Cup semifinals 2nd Leg are scheduled
      Sunday Jan. 19 - Man United home in Premier League
      Midweek - Wolves away in Premier League
      Saturday/Sunday Jan 26-27 - FA Cup 4th Round.

      The League Cup final is scheduled for March 1. There are midweek dates open in February. You could play the Villa quarterfinal Jan. 8, the 1st leg of the semi the week after and then the 2nd leg of the semifinal sometime in February. This way you don't have to move any league matches (we already have one to reschedule, vs.
      West Ham, because of the Club World Cup).

      Klopp's comments I'm convinced were to prevent authorities from scheduling us in some kind of Weekend match, Tuesday, Thursday, Weekend match scenario - and don't doubt they would try to do that if the club let them.

      After all that typing, I see the Guardian already has the whole thing covered in an article.

      Jesus christ, that's insane. I suppose one slight positive is at least we haven't got many "hard" games in that chunk. Leicester at home is the only one on paper which could cause us problems. Of course the Derby is a big game but Everton are absolutely sh*te. I presume the League Cup is now probably a write off so we'll get those two midweek breaks. Will be much needed before the Spurs & United games

      Agree think the League cup is for the fans, whilst the latter, is seemingly a money spinner for the clubs.

      Hence why the club prefer the latter.

      True don’t really get why Adrian didn’t play

      I guess its because Kelleher played in the first match, but I'd like to see Adrian play in the next one. Kelleher may develop into a good goalie, but he sure as hell isn't one at the moment.

      Seemed to be very slow coming off his line and wasn't very commanding of his area. Not sure if that was down to him or just down to overall communication breakdowns from the makeshift defence which had been thrown together.

      Give him his due though he did very well on the penalties, seemed to get close to most & of course kept one out which won us the tie

      Well the first midweek break is when we'll play the quarterfinal. We'll see what happens after that but those kids last night ended up beating a team with a lot of first team footballers in it. I wouldn't  assume we'll lose just yet.
