Liverpool v Saints Build Up

Recommended Posts

Couldn't see a thread for this yet?

 

Can see us giving the scousers a good game and coming away with a point.

(* Torn between playing JWP out of position, when he's been one of our best midfielders during our recent top 4 form, versus the alternative of playing a weaker RB.)

When do we have to sign players by for them to be eligible for this? Is it lunch time on the 31st? I would assume KWP would be done by then, but whether they'd risk him without training is another question. I'd rather play with a specialist right back in this rather than a square peg, even if he hasn't trained with the team much (as long as he's fully fit).

Going for 5 straight away wins and to be honest with you we shouldn’t have any problems.

Liverpool are not too good at home and they are certainly there for the taking.

Usual 1-3 with Ings getting a couple.

Nor Valery unfortunately.

JWP at right back then.

Would hope KWP comes in for a (tough) debut!

 

Keep JWP where he is best.

If the report from Give it to Ron on the KWP thread is accurate then it looks like we'll have the signing completed and announced tomorrow.

 

Probably still be too soon to throw him in against Liverpool though. If it was a home game against a lesser team then it might be OK, but if he gets roasted on his debut for us then it could destroy his confidence completely.

No Mane for them at least.

 

Think we have to be realistic here and after our recent results at least it’s a free hit.

Just like us to sign someone ready for the first team. :facepalm: Well he'll keep Cedric and Yan company then in the treatment room as we struggle on at right back with Danso.

Fancy Ings to score although I think they'll have too much for us in midfield. Dreading to see who is at RB for us :uhoh:

 

Mane out is great for us although I think Armstrong is incredibly important in our 4-2-2-2 system which levels it out.

 

3-1 Liverpool

Liverpool play away to West Ham tomorrow night, Moyes desperate for points as they get sucked into the bottom 3, hopefully Liverpool suffer a few minor knocks and decide to start a few 1st team players winter breaks early before the weekend.

 

We’re playing well away from home but no chance of winning this, draw would be incredible, hopefully a respectable score line but realistically 3-1 Liverpool

Should we do a quick collection and send it to Antonio to do a job on VVD, and Noble on Saleh?

I think Ralph May switch to three at the back for this one. Would always have been an option at Liverpool, but the right back situation may make that an easier decision and play JWP at right wing back. So I think it could be:

Alex

Stephens, Yoshida, Bednarek

JWP, Romeu, PEH, Bertrand

Boufal

Ings, Obafemi

Thought same thing earlier Liverpool threat is from full backs , wing backs stopping them getting forward and 3 in middle defending crosses

Redmond and Long instead of Boufal and Obafemi and you may be onto something there.

IF we perform as we did in the recent weeks, or even better (RH: "We are getting better each week") then 1 or 3 points can be taken from Liverpool.

 

But they are so strong, will be a challenge for the defense. Maybe a fast goal from Ings and, when they attack for the equalizer, make another one or two :-)

Don’t think we’ll be taking any points from Klippity Klopp this weekend with a weakened team. A draw would be remarkable, but I reckon on 3-0 to the bin dippers.

That does solve the issue of not having a right back, and puts JWP slightly further forward. Yes I can see this, although changing the formation that has done us proud of late is risky. No Mané is definitely a plus for us, but they’ll still have enough quality. I’d love for us to give them a good game though. I think a loss, but not a bad one, maybe 3-2 to keep it exciting. Hojbjerg with a 30 yard screamer to open the scoring. Ings with our other.

 

McCarthy, Stephens, Bednarek, Yoshida, JWP, Romeu, Hojbjerg, Bertrand, Redmond, Long, Ings. Subs: Gunn, Danso, Smallbone, Djenepo, Boufal, Adams, Obafemi.

The scouse win bubble has to burst at some stage just hope it is against us and not the bubble blowers tonight!!

 

What a shame BFS didnt get the WHU gig .... he'd have had them on a diet of raw meat and given instructions to kick anything that moves!!

Would love to be the first team to beat them this season, think most world football fans would love us as well, but highly unlikely.

 

A few things in our favour, them playing today so having less rest and Mane being likely out, but still a massive ask.

 

I think we will give them trouble, we have shown we are a dangerous away team but I reckon they'll either fluke a goal, or get a wonder goal or some favourable VARing to get a 2-1 win.

I was honestly hopefully of getting at least a point for this one BUT having seen that Kevin 'Friend to the big clubs' is the ref, he will do everything in his powers to help the scousers. One of the most inept refs in the Prem & there is certainly a low bar!

I think we have to be compact at the back, like at Palace, Leicester and Chelsea as Liverpool are very good on the counter.

 

So for me

 

Mc Carthy

JWP Stephens Bednarek Bertrand

 

Djenepo Romeu PEH Redmond

Ings Long

 

Keep a solid back 8 and try long balls up the channels to Long to get their full backs looking over their shoulder

Let's go and make it as boring as possible, but still offer something going forward. I'd play almost a back 4 in front of the back 3, then let the front 3 just press as much as possible and stay forward. That pace will help if we're go get anything.

 

Mccarthy

Bednarek Vestergaard Stephens

JWP Romeu Højbjerg Bertrand

Long Ings Redmond

We play a very similar style to the Bindippers so maybe Ralph has been a very keen follower of Klopp's fashion. They will certainly not be taken by surprise by our aggressive in-their-faces style as they do exactly the same thing. This might come down to a match-up of quality, who can play keep ball longest and everyone as scared as **** to give it away at which Hojberg should excel.

 

Might not turn out the way most expect, a draw is eminently possible 2-2 or 1-1 - it's hard to imagine them not scoring. First defeat for them this season is a pious hope 'though

I just want to give them a good game, get a goal, and not to get stuffed. If it's a 1 goal defeat then we've done pretty well and we move on.

 

More concerned that the Spurs and Burnley games are so close and we really need to win both. Who do we rest. I'd imagine we'd play Ings in the league and rest him Wednesday. Maybe Obafemi v Spurs, back to Long/Ings for Burnley.

 

This is really where we need extra midfielders as without Armstrong and with JWP right back we're screwed. I'd keep one of Boufal/Djenepo fresh for Spurs and start the other v Burnley, least that's one area we can change it up.

When sweepers were popular the way to counter them was to push one of the strikers on them – almost like having a striker marking a sweeper. It took away their time and space, and often their composure.

 

Of course, VVD is much more than a sweeper. So much of Liverpool’s defensive shape and solidity revolves around him, and he’s the initial launch point for a lot of their attacks.

 

It would be interesting to see how those things look if Long was snapping at VVD’s heels all through the game. It’s not like we’d be losing our main goal scoring threat by sacrificing Long like that.

Apparently Liverpool fans reckon he is terrible too

 

Their definition of terrible is probably that he only gives them a free kick/penalty 90% of the time Mohammed "Greg Luganis" Salah and company go to ground.

There's a spare ticket going. Friend of mine got one for me but I can't make it now. If anyone wants it I can put you in touch with him so you can meet outside the ground.

I have one of those feelings... they're going to batter us all game, we nick it with the last kick of the game. Van Dijk own goal off his penis.
