      Wel Jurgens talking sh*te so 😁

      Above

      They missed a game v the sh*te on the 28th gave them 8 days without a league game.  They did play a league cup game in January, which we didnt

      However no denying an 8 day break at that point would be nice

      Yea being happy I get but actively cheering another side to win?

      Don't get it.

      Strangely these things do happen, the obvious one being the Blackburn game way back in 1995. Certain sections of the crowd cheering the blackburn goal. Then the crazy mass celebration for Redknapps winner coupled with the realisation we might of just handed the title to the mancs, only for news to filter in of the west ham/manu result.

      Swerve, every time we've had a break like that we've been f**king crap in the very next fixture.

      LOL, quite the opposite, my life is all good, I have a wonderful family, great friends, good job, financially very secure and have good health, but I don't like it when people wish me or the people I love bad things and no I don't think I will chill out about that, why should I?

      As repugnant as you are I don't wish you any ill, I imagine life has been fairly unkind to you already and I pity you, I wish you health and happiness.




      Thanks a lot pal really appreciate your best wishes, I think you need to update your SoH though, and not take everything to heart, ya pr**k 😂

      I think tomorrow is going to be a make or break game. A lot of people saying we could get taken apart, a lot saying we could win it and finally get some belief back.

      So 0-0 it is then

      In an ideal world, you have a few weeks and work together on defensive things,

      Well then Jürgen maybe getting a defender in on the 1st January and not the 1st February would have been a good idea.

      Sure. But then we go back into the circle argument about length of injuries, club resources, expectation of players returning, etc.

      I'm sure it's all been argued multiple times on here by now.

      Some feel Jürgen/club erred in not having another defender on board earlier in the season, some feel it was a reasonable posture to feel the team was covered well enough in the back line (and elsewhere).

      Yep. The state of this run of games it's hard to see where we bed them in.

      No idea how we can line up tomorrow and not be vulnerable. If Fab is back I think I might actually stick with the midfielders back there for this one.

      Think well be less vulnerable with Fab and Hendo biting at there ankles in the midfield with Thiago pulling the strings. No point signing 2 centre halves to leave them sat on their arses on the bench...Kabak Im sure will start not sure who with as Nats done nothing worthy of being dropped.

      I agree.

      I'd start Kabak but possibly alongside one of Hendo or Fabinho if both are fit.

      If Fabinho doesn't make it I'd be tempted to play Kabak and Phillips with Hendo sitting.

      Would be like us though to sign to CB only to play two CM at the back.  ;D

      Liverpool v Man City does not strike me as a game to give a debut to a 20 year old centre back but I am a mere football watcher and am happy to be proved wrong on that.

      I hope Klopp plays conservative for a draw. Let City make the game and be ready for counters - that's our natural game anyway. I'll take a point. This is not the important game, it's those games against Brighton & Co. we need to win. I mean what was the point winning vs. Tottenham and then lose to Burnley and Brighton?!?

      Because if we can't win EVERY game we shouldn't win ANY of them.  :roll:

      If Fab and Mane are fit enough to start, I’d be tempted to go;

                       Alisson
      Trent - Fabinho - Kabak - Robbo
                   Hendo - Gini
                        Thiago
             Salah - Firmino - Mane

      As long has one of Hendo or Fab is in that holding position. Phillips has done well but I’m afraid City will play around him, when his strength is in the air, and just booting it away, we need to play out from the back here.

      If Fab is not fit to start then yeah stick Phillips or Davies back there, feck it.

      Hoping we come out firing on all cylinders and put a few past them. Unfortunately with our form and injuries, I hope we don’t get spanked. City are on fire, just hope the we’re the fire engine to douse those flames...
