      Can we put giant screens behind the Kop and broadcast the fans at home?

      Sorry if this is a little too early but with a tricky tie against Villa out of the way I’m starting to feel the nerves of a big European night ahead.

      Getting fixated on this as the days draw nearer and the clock tick downs I’m starting to believe more and more. Klopp would have done his analysis in the post mortem of a drab performance and will adjust accordingly. Bobby back in the side for me, and Jota ahead of Mane. Thiago also a must in the middle and I’m still in two minds about having Fab either next to him or Phillips at the back. A first half goal and clean sheet will have them super nervous with plenty of legs to run at them off the bench in Mane, Ox, Origi.

      Come on you reds!!!!

      Have a feeling 90 mins will finish 3-1 to us... it’s a new found feeling because a few days ago I was feeling quite defeated and couldn’t see how we do it right now, but hey, it’s us, it’s what we do in Europe 😂

      Kabak and Phillips were completely out of their depth against a good, experienced forward in benzema.

      It’s an absolute must that we play Fabinho in the back four. Man Mark benzema and take him out the game. Don’t give him a sniff.

      Bobby has to play too to help the midfield get a grip of both Modric and Kroos. Eliminate those three players and we’ve got every chance of progressing to the semi’s.

      Ali

      Trent
      Fabinho
      Phillips
      Robbo

      Thiago
      Gini
      Milner

      Salah
      Bobby
      Mane

      Kabak and Phillips at CB, Fab, Thiago and Curtis Jones in midfield (although I can see Klopp choosing Jimmy over Jones)

      Mane, Firmino and Salah up front. Jota to come on around 65 minutes if necessary.

      Team picks itself.

      2-0 to us and job done.

      Easy peasy.

      You play CBs in CB places and you play midfielders in midfielder places. Messing with that's what got us fighting for fourth to start with.

      Fabinho is great at CB but with strong cover now in Nat and Kabak he belongs in midfield for sure. Plus with the way Fab can sometimes tackle and poke the ball away he can give up some fouls, and rather those be outside the box with all the diving from Real.

      So 4-2-3-1? no issues with that other than we have not used it much this season and may not be the best time to try a new formation.

      And i think Gini still starts. I like Jones but he's not very fast and we need energy to press them to death and Gini is very good at that.

      If not Gini then maybe Ox, but he hasn't played in a while.

      Whoever plays needs to be on it from the off,it’s imperative we don’t concede early because it’s already going to be a tough ask & we don’t need to make it even harder for ourselves & no crowd will just add to the pressure.

      Fingers crossed, you're right and I'm wrong. I'm worked opposite to last game because I was excited and we disappointed, now hope it's vice versa.

      True,the only thing predictable about us this year is we are unpredictable.We are well overdue a great performance and result at Anfield.COYR.

      I would leave Jota and Mane on the bench,play Milly,Thiago and Fab in the middle,Gini just ahead of them in an attacking roll,with Salah and Bobby up front.Jürgen will have them up for this one and the press will put them under pressure from the off and an opening goal for us will see them crumble like the Barca game.TAA will need protection as they targeted them last week but Modric and Kross won't have time and space like last week as Bobby and Fab will be on their arses.What do you think gobs***e,or are you sitting on the fence and waiting to criticise everyone if there wrong to be positive.COYR.

      Christ, I only asked a question, no need to get your knicker elastic in a twist. Personally would play mane as real Madrid have had problems at right back. Play Bobby and mo with gini, thiago and fab in midfield . If madrid play like they did at the weekend they will sit back and hit on the break

      What did Jürgen say before Barca again? Something like if we do it great but if not then let’s at least fail in the most beautiful way.

      Just want to see us give it a good old go. You can’t comeback every year against top teams so I’m not expecting much but let’s at least give them hell for 90 minutes.

      Might be right possibly switch to it as time goes on if we need more attacking options . Gini has been very poor of late and for me would rather see others given a chance

      Alisson
      TAA Philips Kabak Robbo
      Thiago Fab Gini
      Salah Bob Jota

      First leg, once Jürgen changed things/brought off Keita, was 1-1 after.
      Get better control of the midfield, so would have our ball winners in there, can't let their midfield pensioners have the time and space they had.
      To be honest I wouldn't even consider Mane as a sub on current form, so starting the other 3, with Shaq to come on if needed.
      Would look at Milner instead of TAA at RB, purely because they are going to target that side again with pace, and TAA's defending under real pressure hasn't been great  - but we loose out on TAA going forward.
      No matter who we select this is gonna be tough, they are in good form, sharp and fast, and have confidence.

      But it's not impossible - get an early goal and it's all to play for.
      We'll need to play better than the last time, and can't afford passengers.
      Looking forward to it :)

      We will need Sadio to bounce back to form and early on in the game.

      With no fans there will be no emotion for the players to feed on, no atmosphere to sh*t up Madrid.

      This eventually will go to purely the best side over the 2 legs and Madrid hold all the cards now.
