      D-Day: Pre match: Liverpool v Crystal Palace - Premier League - Sun May 23rd 4pm

      As Abba once said, the winner takes it all, though the draw might do!!

      Last day of the season. 4th, maybe 3rd, place up for grabs.

      I think if we knew we were going to be in this situation on the last day 3 months ago we would have grabbed it with both hands.

      On paper its a game you would say yes thatll do. But Palace not only havr form at Anfield, they have pride to fix from the drubbing we gave them before Christmas. This has the potential to be tricky.

      However, do not underestimate what having support in the ground will bring. Not to mention players like Bobby and Thiago looking like they have found form at the right time.

      Hopefully the players, and fans domt feel the need to score early. Calm heads for 94 or 95 minutes will get us through.

      As it stands

      Chelsea 67 GD 23
      Liverpool 66 GD 24
      Leicester 66 GD 20

      Scenarios

      Match what Leicester do, we qualify

      Draw, Chelsea and Leicester lose finish 3rd

      Win and chelsea draw or lose finish 3rd

      Draw, Leicester win, chelsea lose, finish 4th

      Lose and Leicester draw or win and its 5th

      Draw and Leicester win and chelsea draw or win its 5th

      Draw and Leicester win  by 5 and chelsea draw or win its 5th

      Draw, Leicester win by 5 and chelsea lose its 4th

      I can't believe its still so bloody complicated with only 1 game, so just win boys and that will surely be enough unless Spurs get annihilated.

      All we can do is win. That’s in our hands.
      For the third game in a row we play a negative manager who will park the bus. Or at least try to.

      Benteke has had a decent season for his standards and zaha can be tricky to play against.

      I think there will be goals. For both teams.
      4-3.

      Villa and chelsea is also hard to call as is Leicester and spurs. I’m gonna make sure I have a change of pants at hand.

      Think we’ll win, so will Leicester, by more than us against an insipid Spurs, but not enough to make a difference, and Chelsea draw. Think that makes us 3rd Leicester 4th chelsea 5th.

      And Chelsea win the C L. Hate to say that, but just don’t want city to EVER win it 😊

      I think we will win. I don't think the boys will have fought and scrapped so hard the last few weeks to come up short at home with fans. They will do whatever it takes to send Roy off a loser.

      I do believe we have the best form of any team in the league over the last however many games.

      We'll win this one fellas.

      would love see a goal fest for the reds, everyone hitting form at the same time, but got reality glasses on.  Hard, hard season for the manager, and players, and for us as supporters, but still put 2 nil to us.  I believe we will be back

      Dude, we're 4 goals up in the GD department. Stop freaking out so much. If we win 1-0 they would have to win by 6 to get in over us. I'm pretty sure we get in if we're level on GD based on head to head. We won 3-0 and lost 3-1.

      Win and you're in.

      Benteke hitting prime form which concerns me a bit he’s game suits Nat but I would prefer if Kabak was back instead of Rhys.

      For clarification it goes goal difference, then goals scored and then head to head.

      Hopefully it doesn't come down to that though!

      Win and I think we will be fine. Anything less though and we'll be in trouble because I see Chelsea and Leicester winning their games.

      For my match day attire I dug out an old tee shirt I hadn't worn since back in September and wore it for the Man U game....
      I put it back on for the West Brom game and wore it again the other night against Burnley..
      It's beginning to hum a bit but I couldn't care less... It'll be worn again on Sunday for the Palace game..

      Funny how little superstitions like that affect you isn't it..

      I might not wash it again.... ever  ;D

      Jürgen Klopp has paid tribute to Liverpool FC kit man Graham Carter ahead of his final game with the club this Sunday.


      Carter began working for the Reds as a coach driver in the 1970s – a role that he took on full-time in 1986 – before joining the team at Melwood under Gerard Houllier in 1999.

      He will retire from the position and bid farewell to the club after the Premier League clash with Crystal Palace at Anfield this weekend.

      “We will say goodbye to Graham Carter,” said Klopp at his pre-match press conference.

      “That will definitely happen, that we say goodbye to Graham Carter – kit man for 35, or even more, years at the club.

      “The best kit man I ever had; we have a really good one here, but the most experienced kit man I ever had. Father figure, grandfather figure, whatever you want.

      “We will say goodbye to him in an appropriate way.”

      Some service that. One of those behind the scene people who keep things ticking over

      Best of luck in retirement and thanks for the service  Graham

      Same side that Twatted Burnley for me, see no reason to change anything unless there's a injury we don't know about,
      With Fans back in I can see us putting on a fine last game of the season display and sending Roy off with a severe battering,
      Talking of which, it's Roy's farewell game and although he isn't that popular around Anfield for obvious reasons, i think we should show a bit of class and send him off with rapturous applause or sing out his name, 
      He has given over 40 years of his life as a coach or manager and played in his earlier career,
      It would show us in a good light if we were to show him the respect he deserves.

      Well Done Roy, thank you for your services to football.

      As confident of a win for this one as have been in a long time this season. It really should be no contest. With fans in the stands and 4th place within our reach we should be raring to get out there and pummel Palace.
