      Pre-Match: Nottingham Forest v LFC (Sat 22 Oct 12:30pm)
      Oct 21, 2022 03:57:08 pm
      Our first league game against Forest since 1999.  We did of course play them earlier this year in the FA Cup.  We managed to eek out a 1-0 win that day and I'd hope we can do better tomorrow but will equally take a 1-0 to follow on from the last two 1-0's.

      Oxlade-Chamberlain returned to the bench midweek, Curtis Jones came on.  Robertson should be ready to start again.  Naby Keita not ready.

      Expecting this

      NB: Team no longer available

      I wonder at what point we’ll struggle to put out a recognised forward. We’ll have Matip and Konate up front (if they’re fit that is).

      Probably hold Nunez back just in case, can't risk anymore serious injuries. Thought Forrest would've done better, still present a challenge and we better be on it from the off.

      Expect us to win, even with our never ending injuries. Score early it could be a rout, going for a 3  0 win against Forest. Certainly need to pick up all three points to maintain our winning run !

      No Thiago? He was taken off after an hour against West Ham wasn’t he? Don’t tell me he’s injured?

      Other than that hopefully it’s just a bit of pain with Nunez and he’s fit to start or even be on the bench. Good chance for him to get a run of games.

      Thiago isn’t injured - more about just protecting him

      4 of the teams above us playing eachother this weekend. A win here and against Leeds is an absolute must.

      We need to win every game to move back up the table, you have made a good point.

      I'd try and play Thiago but otherwise agree.

      Although I'd like up 4 2 3 1 with Elliott and Carvalho wide of Bobbi then Salah up top

      I think Thiago being taken off before an hour in midweek suggests he's going to start tomorrow.

      Only about 4 or 5 or so who can be relied on to stay injury free. Never known a squad which is so frail injury wise. Boss is pulling players to prevent further injuries. World cup is a blessing in disguise for us. Staggering from one week to the next trying to grind out results. Get to the World cup knackered and pull up the rocking chair.

      World Cup will be a blessing in disguise (hopefully) to mend our injuries.

      This is crazy this season with the injuries.

      Will be in work for this one so hopefully will go on my break and see a massive win, the 3 points are massive with the other games being played this weekend.

      Ali is also a goalscoring option apart from assists.

      Could be crucial for second half not just injuries people who aren't going rested Mo, Milner, Naby,Robbo,Matip,Konate, to name a few

      I won't be able to do the Live Thread or watch the match :(

      Hope that the team work hard and get a result so to watch the weekend football calmly and with interest.

      Hope Nunez is fit because he is dangerous around their box.
