We are 16 points clear with a game in hand do you really see 4 more games derailing that ?
Personally see it more of a distraction if the club starts kicking up a fuss over the scheduling of it, playing the kids and Klopp not bothering to even manage the kids for it.
Yes it’s badly organised and another sign of their incompetence but we have nobody to blame for this replay but ourselves so unfortunately, just have to suck it up and not create a load of controversy about it all.
It’s obviously a different situation but back when Rafa had his rant about Fergie, even though he was right, it wasn’t necessary and we then slipped a bit. Now with all this taking a stand over the sake of having the break cut short by 2 or 3 days, is it really needed? Do we need this being the focus on the club now?
Even though it’s another game, it’s early on in the break, we have several players in need of minutes and if the players actually do a proper job this time, there’s no reason why we need to make it a difficult game. It’s hardly like taking on City smack bang in the middle of the break is it.
This is an incredible team we have this season, there’s no reason why we can’t clean house with all the silverware this season. Why lose that opportunity over the matter of principle? The possibility of going into the replay 19 points clear. It’s not going to derail our season taking it seriously and if it does, then the problem would extend beyond that one game.
