Call it madness
Suggest senile dementure has set in
Call it the rantings of bloody lunatic
But for the first time in over 30 years, the old formation of 3-2-5 is a glaring possibility.
Gabriel Jamie Fabio
Jermaine Dirk Peter Craig Mark
The above is such a mouth watering possibility, I'm beginning to drool from the corners of my mouth. (another sign of old age)
The Old Fogey's Brigade (OFB) might well have retired to the main stand, and might even be rewarded in the new stadium, with their own little OAP corner.
To chat about bygone eras.
But turning up at Anfield with their flasks and ginger nuts, to look at a line up remeniscent of their younger days might even see them getting excited again. With even the possibility of them breaking into song.
Typical of a Shanks line up, but not as prosperous as one of Bob's all conquering teams.
Just once more in my life, I'd dearly love to see us adopt the attitude, bugger the oppositions tactics, lets hit them with the kitchen sink and the bath tub.
If they score two we'll score 4, if they get three we will get 5.
Obviously it's a big contender for a backfire, but let's be honest, just one more delve into our Bastion of Invincible past cannot do us any great harm.
Especially if adopted in one of the early rounds against a lower division side.
Who knows, if successful, we could even adopt the formation against one of the lesser sides in the prem, say Everton.
Statisticians may tell us that the above formation has no place in todays game, but you cant help an old man dreaming.
Two fast wingers, an inside right an inside left and a ruddy giant in the middle.
Oh Lord (Rafa) grant me this one last wish
