      I would certainly play Kelleher, he did OK in cup completions last season, besides give Alisson a break.

      Think the Boss has said Alisson will be the keeper in the FA cup. It's about the tactics for me. Been all over the place recently. Has to get a grip of the midfield and do something about the high line. Bulk up the midfield, play a 3-5-2...whatever it takes we need a disciplined performance.

      Getting stuffed tonight will really set the alarm bells ringing.

           The team I’d play
       
      TAA Konate Gomez Tsimikas
                   
                       Fab
              Keita       Jones
         
      Salah    Gakpo  Carvalho


      Or

      Jones out for Elliot. 442 with Elliot and Carvalho wide and Salah and Gakpo up top.

      Ringing more than they already are?

      Look, we are going to rest a lot of our regular starters tonight as the league is by far our priority (we are not going to win the Champions League this season, we just aren't). You play to win every  match of course, but it is going to be a tall order to qualify for European football next season. I feel like the m.o. with the team at this point is about rebuilding the type of team that can contend for top honors everywhere. Jürgen is the man to lead us there, but the project will take some time. There's injured players to rehabilitate, young players to blood in and new players to recruit. We'll be working on it for at least 8 months.

      Said Darwin is very close but I wouldn't think it's worth the risk. These pacy guys can pull up sharpish and miss 6 games.

      Milner, Jones, Fab in mid. I'd add Thiago in there and play Mo & Cody up top.

      Robby,

      What makes you think we can't win the Champions league this season ?
      I know we wouldn't, but what if we prioritised the C/L and went all out to win it, as winners you are automatically in next year's competition.  Less games than in the league for a top four finish.
      As I said we wouldn't do it but just a thought.

      Short answer is we concede too many and don't score enough - but I think a few players have dropped off more and faster than expected. It is very difficult for me to imagine us putting in the types of performances required over 7 matches to win that competition.

      True. I can't stand him playing Academy players almost every time we play a cup game unless we're in a semi-final. Losing this would be a big hit, and I would not be mad if he leaves after that. It's a must-win.

      Disagree the regulars have been dog turd, couldnt care less about this competition this season, won it last year and finsihg 10th in the league with and FA cup win wouldnt be worth celebrating.

      I want to see the kids play especially in midfield, something has to change and since i doubt the sytem will it has to be the personel. Id be happy to lose with kids and see a performace than watch the same dross being served up yet again with the usual faces.

      I can’t believe people think we have the slightest chance in the UCL - we’re absolutely finished this season.

      In terms of trophies, yes.

      I'm trying to think of the remainder of this season as a phase of discovering/selecting/building the pieces to another world class football team. Sure the time table jumped us a little bit here, but think of the adventure we've had since Jürgen arrived. Here's the next chapter of that just about to begin.

      Where were you in 2005? No one believed we could get to Istanbul. I even got laughed at for suggesting just that during the 1-0 home defeat in the qualifier against the Austrian team we played. Would of loved to have seen those lads in Istanbul!!

      We're f**king Liverpool FC of course we've still got a chance. Plus we owe those Franco tw*ts.

      Of course we have a chance to win the Champions league, we've done it with a much worse team in the past and against a team better than any in this years one. Well you could say Man City's team is that quality or close but they fumble and can't win it, this year they might but no point just not even having any hope in winning it ourselves. I still want us to try to win the FA cup, I want to see the playing pick up their downed tools and do something for the manager for all the stuff he's done for them, make them into world renowned names, like Salah for instance, a reject now whoaaaow Salah this that and the everything, repay the manager, TAA get your head back in order, Robbo, stop running around like a wild turkey, Fabinho, stop playing like an old age pensioner who can't be arsed etc etc.

      Istanbul and the run to the final was built on defensive dominance, organisation ... discipline and doing alot of running.

      This team couldn't keep a clean sheet if their lives depended on it. We don't score many. We don't run much. We've got no discipline, no shape, no tactics and a severe lack of quality in midfield.

      That team had Gerrard as well.

      Whilst this team quality wise should be better than 05 ... I don't see any reason to believe we can win the CL this season. I see Madrid putting 3 or 4 past us in both games sadly.

      It is sport though ... anything can happen. So whilst I can't see it ... its not impossible obviously.

      The same Gerrard that got run ragged by Kaka in the first half of the final?

      We also still had Didi!! ;)
