    Ha ha. Seriously the cup will have zero bearing on our main squad.

    You're taking a battering for this so I'll not add to it. No doubt the usual clique will agree with you though.

    Maybe. A loss is still a loss and sometimes they can impact the psyche of a team. I hope I am wrong.

    *I was mainly stating that I don't think we'll batter them, which I really don't, but I do still think we are favoruites to win. We are just entering banana-skin territory here..

    Fuck me. It's not just about confidence, it's the pressure of knowing we've lost two and have to put it right and win. I'm not saying its all doom and gloom, but it's a factor as proven by any other side in this position who's had a couple of bad results. You lose two, it effects your thinking and that's when it effects decision making on the pitch, causes hesitancy and anxiousness. It's Brighton and I'm sure we'll be fine like.

    What clique? I have no clue of what you are talking, and you also say I am "taking a battering" because Wet Wet Dreambeliever disagrees with me? Wow things have changed on here if that's all it takes.. *wink*

    If Matip can play (latest comment seems to be that he is in full training and working up to contact) then back to 4231 for me

    -------------Alisson--------------
    TAA---Matip---VVD---Robbo
    ---------Gini-----Fabs-----------
    -------------Shaqiri--------------
    -------------Firmino-------------
    ------Salah-------Mane--------

    100% won’t be an easy game but on the flip side if we can’t go there and win when Chelse and Spurs have then we aren’t as good as we hoped.

    I think we’ll win but with a big scare

    Except 90% of the team didn’t play, we basically gave up on the cup with the team we picked. It’ll affect nothing.

    Ha. Have I unintentionally stuck my hands into a bee hive here? I have no clue why they came at me claws out, I thought I was kinda stating the obvious. I am not even laying blame on Klopp for the team against Wolves, heck, a part of me was even thinking like "let's lose this one so we can use all of our strength on the league and the ChL".

    It's got nothing to do with who played. And 90% of the team DID play against City. It's another stupid fucking point, though it's fine because happy-clappy Froggy is with you and we're all in a clique apparently.

    It's like bellends United on here.

    For me it's not doom at all, you'll have to forgive me if I have come across like that. I was simply vary of the fact that two straight loses on the road should REALLY not turn into three come the weekend. Because if it does, then tides could turn for us.

    Massive game against Brighton, I think we'll win, but there's more at stake here than just the three points. As I see it.

    He says 4-2-3-1 then maps out a completely different formation ...

    Happy Clappy Froggy sees us 4 points clear at the top of the PL and suggested pre-match that we needed to rotate (seems Klopp did too, who'd have guessed, and unsurpisingly most pundits thought it the right move too). Miserable git Mark (and his clique) though sees horrors everywhere they look.

    I much prefer being overly opimistic than being despondent and full of pessimism.

    Go and enjoy your boy's birthday and forget about LFC for a few days, it'll improve your mood no end.

    I'll take any win mate - sure, but I would consider our title challenge over if our players' confidence - especially the leaders on the pitch - was rocked by the last two games. If we want to be champions, we better not get knocked by this - just like City haven't been knocked by their hiccups.

    I won't take part in this fight of yours but have you actually read anything of what I just typed or did you just.. guess? Honest question.

    Don't include me with those legends - and I love KHL, Eriksen, Agger, Dolberg & kosher bacon. So KHL loves me in return ... nothing wrong with some debate! :)

    it is a tough game. Brighton is good on their own ground. Take some work to win this, but we are capable of it, and the short run of Salah and Firmino yesterday should be enough to remind the rest that we have a few very competent assets in the team.

    We will probably use Fabinho as CB, which is fine the way he played (alone?) yesterday. I guess we also got some answers that a more "creative" midfield than we used against City is not really creative unless we have the ball and controll the game. Keita is worrying me a little still. I see his easy Dance through press Levels, and then loose the ball too easy other times. I still think he will get good, but the League is full of no-BS hardmen also. So a midfield of Gini, Milner/Hendo and Shaq/Keita will be best for me I guess.

    Front three gives itself. Weak back up on fullbacks, CD, front Three.
