      Champions of England v Chelsea - Wednesday 22nd July - 20.15 GMT KO

      Wednesday 22nd July 2020, at roughly 22.30 GMT, will be the coronation of the new kings of England
      (I hear there may also be some sort football match taking place before the ceremony)



      It will have been 11,041 since Liverpool FC were last awarded the English League trophy by the time Jordan Henderson raises the newer (& considerably uglier IMO) Premier League title above his head on Wednesday night. Since then seven different managers have tried & failed to win back our rightful crown. Some got agonisingly close, some were just agonising to watch (ahem, Hodgson). Jürgen Klopp is the eighth managerial appointment since Kenny Dalglish stepped down with a few months remaining of the 1991 season, at the time of his resignation, LFC were three points clear at the top of the league table. I imagine many supporters at the time thought it would only be a matter of months until Liverpool got their hands back on the title. Technically, it was. 353 months to be exact, so it's quite fitting that Kenny will be there to coronate Jürgen & the rest of the lads with their medals on Wednesday evening.


      Feelings about next Wednesday are strange. Obviously we've got to play a football match against a very good team, and nobody likes to see Liverpool lose, but I imagine a lot of us will have our eyes on the clock urging the 90 minutes to be over and done with as quickly as possible (a bit like me in work at 3.30PM on a Friday), so that the celebrations can begin. A bizarre, foreign feeling for those of us who have not yet been lucky enough to witness Liverpool FC lift a league title - Like going into a cup final you know you've already won. I hope the lads put in a good performance and I hope we do beat Chelsea by a comfortable margin (even if it does mean helping out United's top four ambitions!) but these lads owe us absolutely nothing more this season, and we owe them everything. The level they've performed at on a consistent basis for the last 24 - 36 months has been incredible. Any performance or result will not change the fact that we're the current European, World and English champions.


      Taking the Thursday off work and luckily managed to book a table at the Sandon for this one (a pub 100 metres or so from the Kop) with a few mates I've not seen since lockdown began. Not sure if we'll be watching the trophy lift, or even the game for that matter. Depending on how the evening pans we out could easily end up spending the whole 90 minutes (and a few hours afterwards) creating an atmosphere for the players inside the stadium, I know a few others are intending on doing this. So I wouldn't bother with the artificial crowd noise for this one! Wherever you are, make sure the beer & champagne is flowing. Liverpool FC are champions of England (and the Europe... and the World)

      This must be the least I've cared about a Liverpool game. Just absolutely buzzing already to see us lift the trophy on the Kop.

      Going to head back home to watch it with my old man who I haven't seen since this Covid kicked off. Predicting a lot of beers and a lot of tears!

      You won't get near the ground, fences have gone up blocking access to the ground from all sides.

      Where have they put the fences up? Have they blocked off Walton Breck Rd?

      No just around the ground, so no entrance to main stand

      Oh, thought you meant they were planning on blocking the roads off

      Only going to be staying round the Kop / Breck Rd end anyway so that's not an issue. Reckon those fences will have probably been scaled by about 9 o'clock anyway  ;D

      It would be nice to see us win but I am just giddy thinking about watching Henderson lift the trophy and the boys go nuts.

      Line-up selection I would think be another good opportunity to give both Jones and Williams to show what they can do along with Ketia and Minamino.

      -------------------Alisson----------------
      Williams----Gomez----VvD------Robbo
      --------Jones----Fabinho---Ketia-------
      --Salah---------Minamino------Mane---

      Subs: Adrian, Lovren, TAA, Gini, Ox, Elliot, Origi, Shaqiri, Firmino

      I think he deserves the shot, and in a low risk game like this I believe he could team up with Milner quite well.

      why not play him instead of Milner then, what is it with people not wanting to play Keita???


      As for the match I have a funny feeling we'll beat them with a good margin, I think the lads are hurting a bit from the two recent results and they'll want to win well before lifting the trophy.
      Another factor is that Chelsea only have 2 days off now before they play us whereas we've had a full week to prepare and refocus.
