Liverpool seriously need to look at their back as much as we need to address our forward issues. Everybody has stated that. But their midfield and attack are creative, quick and they will score. I expect Rafa to set us up strongly to defend and move to counter attack swiftly. Seems to do for Liverpool quite a lot this season.
I've just been looking. Liverpool had 35 on goal attempts against Burnley. They had 16 on Sparta's goal on Tuesday. Couldn't find the number of attempts against Leicester but they scored 3. I reckon we'll be under seige for virtually the whole game. The defence must maintain its composure and we must keep everyone on the pitch.
Just saying similiar to me brother Keggy, if we're still in it with 30 mins to go he could be the man for the occasion, but he won't start with the loon for good reason. We need to take chances and Joselu is plainly not the answer. One thing I will say is that if memory serves me right a lot of our famous victories have been the late Sunday game, when St James' is at it's drunken jumping best. I think we've a chance.
Aye, later years have done us ok. People being off all day from work with the drink having plenty of time to sink in. Leeds last year was an example of how that goes although that result was a bit of a freak.
On paper this is a very dangerous game but we underestimate what Rafa has done with the set up here. Anything can happen.
1-4 it was, Spotty Mac got a pen for us, I prefer remembering the good times, The Andy Cole hat-trick when 11 Englishman gave Liverpool a footballing lesson. Can't bear to see those 4-3's I was at both of them and that was painful enough.
