      Time to bounce back. We know Thiago won't feature. I've seen rumours online that Matip is out but he is not mentioned in official team site so I don't know how credible those reports are. I guess it will be Joe Gomez with Virgil at center back if they are true (Now that i think of it, Konate is not mentioned either but I know before it was said he will be out for a while - too many injuries to mention them all, I suppose).

      Hoping for a good performance and three points.

      I would like to see Joe get game time with big Virgil they seem a very good combo. Just get the win and move on tomorrow .Hopefully with an evening kick off it should be cooler than of late too so no need to hold back. Lets give UTD some sleepless nights by putting on a great team performance

      Don’t know why, but I dont have a confident feeling about this game. Maybe because it’s been a number of years now since we last failed to win on the opening day. Mixed in with the number of injuries we have.

      Also read the stat that the last time Gomez and Virgil started together in league was our 7-2 defeat to Villa.

      A few players could easily sit this game out based on their last appearance but based on what’s available and who improved us against Fulham, I’d like to see the following;

      Ali, Trent, Gomez, Virgil, Robbo, Fab, Elliott, Milner, Mo, Diaz and Darwin.

      Be surprised if Darwin doesn't get a start. Made an impact already. Keeps defenders occupied. Over the years we've probably scored more creative goals than any other team, now that we have a predatory striker. he'll need feeding.

      Need a thumping win to get back up in or close to the top 4.

      5-1

      I’m glad, I was starting to wonder if I was being a bit extreme for a minute!
      But no on a serious note, it was the subs that rescued it for us vs Fulham and IMO with Thiago currently out, I think Milner brings a better balance to the midfield than what Hendo will in this game.

      Palace are no pushovers, they had one of the best defences last season I believe. They are a much better side since Viera took over and despite losing to Arsenal last week, they had plenty of chances.

      Should see a reaction from the players after last weekend's shocker. Be a bit worried if we don't put in a good performance.

      Nunez needs to start, Gomez in at the back and I want to see Elliott as part of the midfield.

      NB: Team no longer available

      It is either Keita or Elliott. We will see them both. I went with Keita because he is more experienced.

      We need to win the match anyhow.

      Expect a few changes with all the injuries, good chance for Gomez and Elliott to make a case for more starts (Especially Gomez who been waiting a while).

      Fast start would be nice to get the crowd into it, Palace are a decent side so I expect decent game.

      I think Elliot will get the nod to start -- he'll be absolutely buzzing and full of confidence after signing his new deal.  I think Nunez has to start as the #9, and if Matip and I bought are both injured then Joe slots in next to VVD.

      I'd like to see this. Fab and Henderson helping the defence a bit more with Harvey ahead of them, we've conceded goals in a lot of recent games. That front 4 with Trent and Andy should be able to get a few goals against Palace.

      Amazing how losing a lynch pin in midfield throws your team thoughts up in the air, without Thiago suddenly we feel rudderless, disjointed maybe, because we are so reliant on him, it’s probably the only position we don’t have like for like, understandably, he’s uniquely brilliant and I’d argue the best in Europe, so we will miss everything about him,

      We do have really good prospects of course but prospects don’t bring experience with them nor the vision  to see a pass where no one else can, that’s what we will miss most, we need another Thiago, only ten years younger, however, we should still do Palace reasonably comfortably at home, not quite down to the bare bones yet but certainly not fielding our strongest…..I’d go thus…..


                                Alisson
                    Trent Gomez Virgil Robbo
                               Fabinho
                       Hendo           Keita
                       Salah  Nunez  Diaz

      If Naby doesn’t make it I’d be very tempted to throw Carvalho in at the deep end, but probably play Bobby deeper in a 4-1-2-3, difficult to judge Palace as yet this season for obviously reasons but we should still prove too much for them,
      Anfield will be buzzin first home game, add under the lights, Evening KO, it’s Gonna be ELECTRIFYING, so I’m expecting sparks & Lightening strikes from our front three and a statement of intent from the whole team, we’re already in the oil slick behind them Cnuts b4 game two kicks off, so back to winning ways starting from tonight, don’t see anything other than a Mighty Reds win.



      shh, whisper it quietly, MUtants are rock f***in Bottom, their closer to the championship than top 4, and if you listen very very carefully you’ll hear Fergie sobbing into his Red label, where’s your ‘F**kin Perch’ now you bacon faced old Cnut, bacon faced old Cnut, bacon faced old Cnut, bacon faced old Cnut, bacon faced old Cnut, bacon faced old Cnut…..that void between us and them has a hell of Echo doesn’t it??

      Boss has hinted Naby will start and bring Elliott into it later on. Probably putting Carvalho behind Naby & Elliott and Jones even. Have to be fair unless at some stage Carvalho comes on and makes a statement of intent.

      --------- Fab-----------------
      --- Hendo ------ Nabylad---
      -- Salah - Nunez- diaz --

      Very exciting team even without Thiago, and plenty options on the bench, Bobby, Milner, Elliott, Carvhalo, Kostas etc.

      ARSE !

      Is what you mean I ass-ume, so why not just say it ? But yes I think the young lad is special too, a bit different  from Trent’s situation but you only learn from making mistakes, Trent made a few, still does but he learns from them and has got himself a wealth of experience too, I’m a believer in, if your good enough get in amongst it and make yourself better,

      I’d be happy if Jürgen played him, he gets invaluable experience at this level, gets to feel the pace and intensity of a prem fixture albeit against Palace, who let’s face are not going to pose too many dramas, I’ve likened him to a Coutinho type role in the AM position behind a front three, so tonight is a very good base for him to start, whether Jürgen sees it the same way I doubt and will probably revert to Bobby, but potentially we have a worldly for sure.

      Stick  him in there Jürgen, and IF the proverbial hits the fan, no pun intended, we can always Chuck Jimmy into the mix !!

      True. But can you imagine the time-wasting teams will use? Not only that, the game has now become even more stop-start. I'm not a fan. I hope I am wrong.

But yes I think the young lad is special too, a bit different  from Trent’s situation but you only learn from making mistakes, Trent made a few, still does but he learns from them and has got himself a wealth of experience too, I’m a believer in, if your good enough get in amongst it and make yourself better,

      I’d be happy if Jürgen played him, he gets invaluable experience at this level, gets to feel the pace and intensity of a prem fixture albeit against Palace, who let’s face are not going to pose too many dramas, I’ve likened him to a Coutinho type role in the AM position behind a front three, so tonight is a very good base for him to start, whether Jürgen sees it the same way I doubt and will probably revert to Bobby, but potentially we have a worldly for sure.

      Stick  him in there Jürgen, and IF the proverbial hits the fan, no pun intended, we can always Chuck Jimmy into the mix !!


      RIBENA for my Men, WE RIDE AT DAWN !!!

      So probably this is the lineup...

      ------------ Ali ------------
      - Trent-Gomez-VVD-Robbo -
      --------- Fab-----------------
      --- Hendo ------ Nabylad---
      -- Salah - Nunez- diaz --

      Very exciting team even without Thiago, and plenty options on the bench, Bobby, Milner, Elliott, Carvhalo, Kostas etc.

      Longer day gone on I think you might be right with Naby getting the nod .

      True. But can you imagine the time-wasting teams will use? Not only that, the game has now become even more stop-start. I'm not a fan. I hope I am wrong.

      Looking at the negative side of it, yes there is more time wasting, but if refs add the allotted time back its not an issue, even keeps match goers out longer, spending more money. ;D

      Pretty much have to get all 3 points here. No other result will do even though it's early in the season. Reckon we will blow their doors off today.

      Can’t explain the level of anticipation I have for this game. Been buzzing all day and the hours have been dragging… Bit of a false start against Fulham and then 10 days of waiting while having to see everyone else play. Think I’ve realised as well I don’t have the attention span for any game unless we are involved, was looking forward to watching Chelsea/Spurs and must have watched all of 15 minutes.

      There should be no must win games at this point in this season but you ideally don’t want to give City any encouragement this early in the season so nothing less than 3 points today. Hopefully a good performance along with it, maybe don’t concede first for a change and have the game wrapped up before the 2nd half. That would be nice.

      I heard something about, only having 60min games but the clock stopping every time the ball is out of play because, apparently, the ball is out of play on average, 30mins a game. Not sure how that provides more ball time, but there you go. Something to do with a Wenger proposal.

      Seeing as we've lost the title twice, on one point, I think you're right. Unthinkable even a few years ago, but, 1 point? It's that close, we're already looking at the prospect of having to beat City home and away to win the title.

      Madness, but that's the high bar both teams have set.

      Yea, That would be cool if they added time for ball out of play. But suppose matches could go on for many many hours. L o l

      This is why last week still stings so much.  I hate to blame refs (especially when our performance was sh*te) but I still feel we were cheated out of 2 points, and those points could ultimately be the difference in 1st / 2nd....

      I do think Jürgen will have put a rocket up the player's arses and we will start with more intensity and tempo than we witnessed at Fulham.  I'm hoping for an early goal for Darwin as I think with a bit of confidence that he'll start banging them in for fun.

      I really cant see city and us getting the massive points we have in previous seasons, Its going to be a lot tighter this season. We already seeing improvements from loads of teams.

      So the points dropped last week aint gonna make a massive difference, unless we follow it up with another shiter tonight. :lmao:

      Good length of time preparing for this and seeing the results come in over the weekend I'm sure the players will be straining at the leash to get on the pitch and declare our title hunt well and truly under way.

      Darwin must be in from the start as he is such a handful and his tenacity helps set the standard of our attacking play. Harvey too for me as we need his positive energy and creativity in the middle. We really should blow this lot away 3 or 4-0.

      Will be a tough game this. Personally think Vieira was one of the manager's of the season last year. He really taught and told his team to go for it against the top sides and survived in a season where many, including myself, didn't give them much hope of staying up (such was the ageing mess of a team that Hodgson left).

      Quite simply, we're going to have to be close to our A game for this one.

      This is going to be tough! Expecting a nervous game. Just hope the team up their levels from last time and go for it.

      My team:

      Alisson

      Trent Gomez VVD Robbo

      Elliott Fabinho Henderson

      Salah Darwin Diaz

      So this would be my team too London Red. I'm liking that a lot.

      Our season starts tonight after the slight hiccup last weekend.

      Full house at Anfield for the first home game can only be a brilliant atmosphere after our efforts last season, everyone should be buzzing.

      I'm very confident of 3 points and hopefully a bit of a goal fest to boot.

      Awful to say but the pressure is already on.

      Come on you mighty redmen, let's slay those Eagles.

      Where are you hearing this?

      Whether it’s true or not this has been a problem historically. Soon as we rely on these guys to step in, they suddenly have an injury. Hopefully it’s not true because Gomez isn’t going to have many chances to prove himself, tonight was a big night for him.

      Apparently he’s on the bench. So not injured per se but not fit to play 90? Very frustrating for the lad
