      I see the club is showing both games on their LFC TV platform. Tickets being sold for this match as well so it is not behind closed doors. Does anyone know when they start training in Dubai? Team has a week off now if I remember correctly.

      The League Cup match at City will be on December 22.

      Good stuff, players need to keep fitness up and injured guys will need games.

      Must be absolutely gutting for our lads not to be involved in the WC so I hope they enjoy their time off whilst maintaining their fitness levels. It is a good time to recharge batteries and get sharp for the second half of the season.

      I thought it was one week, which would mean a week at Kirkby before flying.out. but maybe it is two.

      This would make more sense. But why not 2 weeks off, it was after all a very short summer break for them.

      It seems a lot of them still have international commitments as there are friendlies taking place over the next week for lots of countries who did not qualify.

      Dubai super cup.

      Three points for a win
      Two for a draw.....

      And a pen shootout after both games no matter the score with a bonus point for winners of the pens.

      Agree.

      I hope we have the balance right. Can't do nothing but too intense could lead to issues after January.

      Pretty sure they will be on top of the fitness stuff.

      Also cant let them do too little, we need to fit and firing for the 2nd half of season.

      Fair point, keep the players fit for the second half of the season. There is plenty to play for including the CL.

      Bound to pick up injuries in these 'friendly' games. I can understand why they want to play them like ... but can't help but think they'll end up doing more harm than good. Seems to be about money more than anything else. Hope the lads enjoy their break and come back refreshed.

      Funny little formula. 2 points for a volley 3 for a header and 5 for a scorpion kick.

      I think a couple of friendlies, with liberal substitutions, can be a plus. Otherwise it's more than a month with no match and nearly a month of only training. A couple of games will blend well with all the training. This team can find ways to be injured whether or not we play matches.
