HAPPY BIRTHDAY PEP LJINDERS 38 years old today the lucky bugger.
Looking forward to today and another tense afternoon in the toilet, there will be plenty squeaky arseholes mainly from the Salford based media hoping to add plenty of sh*te to their respective bLogs when we take the piss,
I fancy us today, pressure is off so no real inhibitions that could scupper our chances, for me this is a free hit as we don’t normally take this comp too seriously, if the world and indeed the world of football was in its normal state I believe Jürgen would play a sh*t load of kids and prioritise resting key players for league and CL encounters, but since it’s the MUtants and our nemesis there is understandably a bit more to it than just another cup tie,
For me I would sit back and play them at their own game, they are the hosts so theoretically they should bring the game to us, but this is OGS MUtants and bus parking will be his mantra when facing us, even when we have a depleted side, anyhoo i would be tempted to sit and let them come onto us, and we hit them on the break, it’s different, it’s unusual for a Klopp X1 but I would rather we run at them with plenty of pace , trying to pass through them hasn’t and won’t work,
Let’s try something different today, I’m not of the opinion passing from side to side is going to threaten them in any way, they’ll just park their bus and nullify our efforts.
