      Pre Match : Liverpool v Fulham : Sunday 7th Match : 14.00

      Oh f**k it I must be a glutton for punishment wanting to see us in the current state but surely it’s time for a change of tactics and formation.

      Even Jürgen must be getting bored with the turgid sh*t since the start of the year.

      We can probably forget about Top 4 and hopefully start to play some football at least that highly played footballers should be doing with their eyes closed, like making simple passes, running into space, taking on players, and heaven forbid forward passes.

      Fulham should have beaten last time around and are no push overs, they are fighting for their lives so expect another roller coaster for those of with extended anxiety recently!

      Need to forget about how weak the CB’s are it is just weakening the rest of the team dynamic.


                                                                      Alisson


                           Trent               Phillips                                  Davies               Tsimikas


                                                                       Fab


                                               Keita                                       Thiago



                                                                        Shaq       


                                                Salah.                                        Jota

      What's Next?: Liverpool v Fulham - Premier League - Sunday 7th March; 14:00

      Back at it Sunday and I expect Jürgen to change the team a good bit, for the sake of freshness if nothing else. Probably going to see Fab paired with Nat Phillips ( Klopp calls him Nate  :) ), and I wouldn't be surprised to see Trent and or Robbo rested in favor of Neco Williams and Tsimikas or Milner, especially with a Champions League match coming a few days later.

      That should give Naby Keita a chance to start for the first time in a while. It might also mean Shaqiri gets a game. Same for Divock Origi. Not sure For how long Diogo Jota is fit to go, but I do expect Sadio and maybe Bobby to both be rested. I think Klopp hinted that Salah will be involved Sunday. So how about:

      Alisson
      Neco Phillips, Fab, Milner
      Gini, Jones, Keita
      Salah, Origi, Shaq.

      That team could beat Fulham, but of course, they could also lose. Hard to know what to think anymore, other than to back Jürgen to make it right at some point.

      I’d like to see Fabinho back in the middle of the park.

      Just need a win to hang our hat on. We're up 2-0 in Budapest. If we get a win Sunday, we should feel somewhat confident going into Wednesday, xoming off a win and with a 2 goal cushion and all. Get out of there and advance and maybe be able to smile for a minute.

      This season isn't over just yet, but we're hanging by a thread. Something needs to change. We need something to breathe some confidence into the lads. Be it a change in formation, form, or attitude. Something.

      Very hard to get excited about this game knowing the Top 4 is gone. Realistically we need to win all of our remaining games to have a chance, but it's a fight for a Europa league place were in now.

      There couldn't be a worse time to play a relegation threatened team, they'll be fighting for their lives,  and we're showing no real fight unfortunately.
      Our players need to have some pride in the Jersey, and realise how privileged they are to be at this great club.
      Jürgen 100% needs to get Fabinho back in midfield, there's no point in sticking to a broken system.

      Top 4 hasn't gone and we don't necessarily  need to win all of our games other teams above will take points off each other and lose points against other teams going to be a challenge but there is no way we should be throwing the towel in

      You know it’s going to be the same defence, same midfield 3 and same 3 up top.... with the same boring side to side outcome

      Shouldn't be an issue even with all our injuries right?

      I wouldn't be giving up if I was a player, but as a supporter I think it's gone. European football is a must. We must at least make the Europa league, and hope for a Champions league win against all the odds.

      Know what you mean two or three wins on the spin will change everything but as you say at the moment can't see it just got to hope the returning players can give more a rest got to change that midfield and give Keita a run someone who can travel with the ball and also the best presser we have in midfield.  Jota will be a huge boost and  hopefully Fab into midfield at some point . 3 points tomorrow will be a good start

      For me this games less important than Leipzig. Based on that my team, not what we will see, but what Id go with


                                  Alisson

               Neco    Nat  Davies  Tsimikas

                           Milner  Thiago

                       Shaq     Keita     Jota

                                   Mo

      If either Kabak or Nat are fit then in for Rhys

      Start Jota, get him 45 under his belt rather then chucking him on in the last 10

      Sounds like Nat is good to go

      I'd honestly shake it all up, 8/9 changes and see what happens. If players impress then keep em in for Leipzig.

      Think I'll explode if we go with Fab at the back and the same front three again.

      Spot on

      If anyone geys a chance v Fulham and they perform they keep their place

      Sadly I think we can nearly say with certainty what 11 we will see again repeating it all over again

      I don't see him risking Jota from the start, so could well be the same front 3 starting. Has to be Phillips and Davies in centre half, with Fab moving up the field.

      I think Jota, and thereore the team, get more benefit from starting him. Get 45 under the belt, or a bit more if he has it..Get him up to speed. This throwing lads on for 10 minutes to get them back at it I never get. You hardly get second wind in 10 minutes never mind sharpness back

      This for me all day, give him a chance to make a difference from the off, rather than at the end when we’re chasing the game and he’s under more pressure to make the difference.

      As Bri said, you've got to get some minutes into him to get him back up to where he was pre-injury. I think tomorrow might be a good chance to get those minutes so he's a bit more ready for Leipzig which will be an intense game given how they will press and try to force the game.

      Even if Jürgen is cautious over him, I'd still throw Origi into that front three to mix it up a bit. Just think it's madness to keep trying the same thing again and again and expecting things to change. Just breaking the front three up for a game or two might be what they need to get their arses back into gear.

      Playing the same formation, with the same results, is like banging your head against a brick wall. Something must change tomorrow against Fulham in a game we badly need to win. Anything less than three points would be totally unacceptable.

      This. I'm fully expecting, sadly, another 1 nil defeat. I just can't be arsed with it at the moment, life is hard enough without the one escape I currently have just making things worse.
      I cannot wait for this season to end so we can reset over the summer.
