PSG, 18-09-18, (H) CL

Great result yesterday against one of the top 6 teams but that's done, now onto the CL and a visit from PSG and that complete and utter tool Neymar, can't stand him.

I think Klopp has to make some changes here, That incident with Firmino yesterday looked really nasty, anyone who saw the still photo of it will know what i mean, that eye is bound to be very sore for a few days so i doubt he will play here. I would also rest Mane but i would start Salah as he appears to need the game time most, slow start to the season for him, he's far from up and running in my opinion, i would have Studge and Shaqiri up front with him, god knows their chomping at the bit for more game time.

In midfield i would start Keita, Hendo and maybe Fabinho will take his bow here, another player chomping at the bit to get his LFC career started. The back 5 i think should stay the same. My team for this game would be, 


                                               Arnold      Gomez    VVD      robertson 

                                                    Keita       Hendo     Fabinho

                                                    Salah        Studge    Shaqiri

Even with 4 changes it's still a very strong 11 but will Klopp make so many changes? He may wait until our next two games against southamton in the Lge and chelsea in the Lge cup to make changes but whatever he does we'll have a strong team to start, best of luck RedMen.

  • I didn't see the game but I kept in touch with the live feed and it looked like a great game with all the text. Can't wait for the next CL game against Napoli.
  • That was a proper European game. When PSG equalised I doubted we'd even get a draw, to be honest. We deserved at least a draw though, our midfield was fantastic throughout - as were our fullbacks - and we limited PSG to relatively few chances. Sturridge did better than I expected, he seems to be on the right track, but Salah still looks off his game (not just his shooting but also his touch). For Firmino to make the impact he did considering the injury he had was quite phenomenal and I don't think anyone could've said we didn't earn the three points. That's a good number of points in the bank in what looks to be a tricky group.
    • It was a cracking game, Robertson is fast becoming a fan favourite, brilliant player as is Arnold who i thought was excellent tonight also. What's your take on Salah's reaction after Firmino scored the winner, i'm not sure what way to take it, he obviously knows he's off form and was awful tonight but he could have reacted better after that goal imo.
      Delighted for Studge, he needed that goal badly but he'll never dislodge any of our regular front 3 so if he's happy to play a bit part then happy day's, glad we kept him this summer.
      • Great game! The mouth that roared played a terrible game. Neymar should be ashamed. Tablet broke and I don't get to use laptop often. Blog coming 1 Oct!
        • Look forward to it Sage, hope your doing well.
      • I expect Salah is feeling a bit frustrated at the moment, given his form, but the TV footage was a bit misleading. His initial reaction to Firmino's goal was to throw his hands in the air, something that was difficult to see because of Klopp's running about, and then he threw the bottle into the bottle into the ground, probably out of a mix of adrenaline, relief and a little frustration in himself. I think Salah's too nice a person to be unhappy about Firmino scoring (if he was Ronaldo it may be another matter) and his instinctive reaction to celebrate probably says more than what followed.
  • Excellent 1st half, i want to see Keita and Firmino on, Studge and Hendo to make way and Shaqiri to get at least the last 20.
  • Not too happy with that midfield they struggled against Leicester. Fabinho has experience in Ligue 1 and knows PSG so why not throw him in. To my mind PSG have inferior opposition in their league not as tough as the PL so they may find the going tough
  • Sturridge it is so.
  • Firmino didn't train yesterday, i think we can take it for granted he won't be playing tonight, be very interesting who replaces him?????

"At this moment there doesn’t seem to be a place and time to lift the trophy. It wouldn’t surprise me if there’s a 2nd trophy that also needs to be lifted before we have done this one."

Just a quick one guy's. Hope you are all fit and healthy, seems this virus is starting to ease off so hopefully we'll all be back to normal soon, whatever normal will be. Something i've been thinking about lately is, when the time comes, hendo lifti…

Looks like Liverpool FC has dominated the BBC Awards for 2019-20 Season and it seems just about right with the winners and PL XI team but Bruno Fernandes was a very strange addition into that team and they were other possible selected chosen nominee…
