    Free swing after the Brighton win, would take a point on Friday.

    Do we want Vestergaard to play in this one? They have 3 speedsters up top.

    Presume Ings can't play so I'd give Sims a start with Redmond or Austin up top.

    Defend well, hit them on the break.

    I'd put Bertrand in at LCB and Targett LWB. RB did really well there for Koeman a few times.

    Hopefully they’ll be nervy and under a lot of pressure and we’ll be able to score and get them frustrated.

    The beauty of it is that RH will be setting us up to try and win.

    Such a breath of fresh air from defeatist Hughes and the clown.

    An ex Saint will score. Probably VVD. 3-0 to the victims.

    So Did RH put Gallagher on to see if he could be the answer to the conundrum of who to play up front on Friday? I still would prefer a 3 of Redmond Sims and Armstrong breaking at pace as will probably be our only outlets against them.

    Would genuinely rather see a front three of Redmond, Sims and Armstrong interchanging than see Austin or Gallagher up front.

    We did not play well yesterday have no strikers who can score and playing against a team who are playing really well at the moment

    I think you have to play Redmond and Sims if only for the pace on the break and to push them back.
    I’m not sure Gallagher would be any good but if RH thinks he would be then fair enough. Not sure VVD will be having sleepless nights thinking about facing him though.

    Can anyone think up an ex Saints XI that could,how should I put it,physically be detrimental to the Liverpool game plan ?

    They'll start fast out of the blocks with high pressing and intensity, the opening 10 minutes could be a nightmare. I hope we are prepared for this.

    If we play like we did yesterday after our goal we're going to get tanked.

    Agree to a point. Gallagher could be useful defending set pieces.

    Was noticeable yesterday without Vestergaard that we are a small side.

    Brighton got a head on pretty much all the set pieces, defensive and attacking.

    Tbh this game is more important for derailing Liverpool's title charge. I think we are safe now so a defeat won't be disastrous but a point would be massive in so many ways.

    Would obviously love it if we could win or draw and derail their title bid.
    Cardiff play twice before we next play. That will give us a better idea of what is left to do for survival.

    How much extra prize money do you get for each league position? Might be an incentive for Ralph if he's promised the funds to strengthen his squad.

    10 men behind the ball hit them on the counter with pace,

    Long, sims, Redmond are needed!

    Yes, with Ings out, I was thinking this could be one for Long if he is fit. His type of game for providing a nuisance factor for the Liverpool defence.

    Exactly you want Long to be the nuisance by pressing forcing mistakes in which the likes of Redmond can finish off.

    Martin, Kirkup, Hollywood, Fisher, McGrath, Gabriel, Paine, Channon, Davies, O'Neil, Jenkins.

    For this we need to sit super deep, defend hard, and hit them on the counter at pace. My team is:

    Gunn

    Vest Bednarek Yoshi

    Valery Romeu Hoj Bertrand

    JWP

    Redmond Armstrong

    Of recent, I've been pretty pessimistic going to games and we have won. Now I am pretty optimistic so I guess we'll lose.

    City and Liverpool are freebies really, so might as well just play with a freedom and take it to them.

    I wonder if we have any clauses for extra money on any of the players we've sold them on them winning the CL/PL.

    I never thought I'd be happy for Chelsea to win (v Cardiff). Not strictly on topic for this thread I know but I have drunk a few beers and I'm sure a few others on here might have had the same disingenuous thought.

    This. I like Klopp and have no animosity toward Liverpool. Much prefer them to Everton who are just a bunch of bitter nearlymen.

    I'm totally different. I want City to win everything. Demonstrates how stupid things are, and that spend spend spend gets you everywhere. Oh for the days when they introduce a rule that you have to have developed at least 3 or 4 of your starting eleven.

    Can't abide Citeh, they are so dull, soulless and 'manufactured'. Still, I hope and think we will beat the dippers.

    If Vest is still out:

    Gunn:
    Valery Bednerak Yoshida Bertrand
    Romeu Hojberg
    Ward Prowse
    Sims Armstrong
    Redmond

    I prefer 5 at the back, but Stephens vs Mane, Salah and Fabinho is the stuff of nightmares and title-winning dvd sets..

    Thats the one, the team that beat Liverpool 1-0 at The Dell, provoking the infamous Shankly outburst, 26 September 1970. Think these guys could handle the current Liverpool team, though personally I would replace Tom Jenkins (one of the most frustrating wingers we ever had) with someone like Redmond.

    This, even though I dislike City immensely.
