Impossible with these damp sheets. ;)

Shaq starts, according to the leakest extraordinaire.

If I was a betting man I would bet on him starting this weekend. 4-2-3-1 I imagine.

This will be tougher than we think
Normally a player can look great on tubes, but one of the things that's encouraging for me is just the amount of youtube videos on him

We need to find a midfield that is going to break lines with either passing or running and we need to find it quick.

I really want to see Keith, Stan & Gini start in this game. Altough Stan might have to play at RB...

Yep got the same belief. They might cause trouble for sure, but their drive and willingness to attack will open it up for us.

I really hope we go for an attacking midfield rather than a functional one. City can do it, there's no reason we can't because our players are also talented.

I still can't believe that someone thought it was a good idea to kick off at 12.00 on armistice day. Even more so that the police and two clubs backed it.

I know a few regular match goers who are jibbing the game, in favour of going the cenotaph instead.

Poor decision all round.


Its a poor decision. What do we expect though from the Premier League ?

Even though we'll be ravaged by injuries over the int break and lose all momentum anyway it would be good to see a fast paced belting. These are either pathetically bad or they are doing it deliberately to try and get the manager sacked, either way this should be comfortable.


I am sick to death of these international breaks. Nothing to look forward to over the weekend when they do these and someone always gets knackered or injured.

I just wanna see the lads moving around quickly and not looking so sluggish like we have done at times. Doesn’t feel like the intensity and disire has been there so much lately, we get that right today they we should batter them.

I've always wanted to see a proper offensive 433 with basically two #10 playing as the #8's like City do with Silva and B.Silva but I'm not sure we have playmakers like City to do it. We have talented functional midfielders but they're not creative or have that kind of vision. That's just the way we've recruited. You can't just ask Milner and Gini to be David Silva and KDB. They can't do it and i'm not sure Klopp will ever want his midfield setup that way.

Whatever we do its clear we need our midfield to do more. It's our weakness this season. Today i'd like to see all three new midfielders start in a 433 but i'm sure it won't happen.

Jokanovic has called out his players in the press and said that they're soft practically. I imagine that they will be put in a lot of effort in the opening 20 minutes of the game, whether or not they can be disciplined enough is another matter, they're that poor defensively.
I think that would be ideal for us, to be honest. Fulham aren't set up to play with 10 behind the ball. A fired up Fulham showing what they can do likely means them trying to take the game to us a bit. Our defending, pressing and breaking (albeit the latter has been poor this season so far) make that approach a giant and, most likely, fatal risk for a team as weak at the back as they are. It's been a while since a lesser team has played into our hands like they seem likely to and it could be a real opportunity for us to take advantage.

Watford after the break will, on the other hand, be a really bad match up for us - a team that knows how to press and how to play without the ball, is very effective with both, and physical to boot. On paper, that one will be a massive test.

I think it's a really ideal game for him - the sort he excels in. I doubt they'll be massively pressing him and there will be spaces at the back, he's not going to have to thread the needle with his passes, but they do like to play possession football so his stamina and aggression should really help us kill any momentum on their part.

We need his aggression and leadership. He will fire the ball forward early and distribute some bollockings if needed.

Is he the best footballer? No. But we need him this game and he will provide good cover especially if Keita and Shaqiri start ahead.

Bit worried so I look at that Momo stature praying he bails us out if our performance slump continues vs Fulham. Talismanic players do just that. We could play worse going forward than against Redstar but still win. He starts according to reddit, in front of aggresive, workman-like experienced midfield so I believe Salah will get his chances to shine again.

Nothing less than a convincing win will do. Klopp is quoted as saying it feels as though finishing the season nothing less than champions can be considered successful, perhaps this a giant clue the lads are feeling the pressure. Nevertheless, I would fear for Fulham!

Not for me, the senior players will need to show up big time after Wednesday and I expect Gini to be one of those. I think he'll be more fired up than a Naby, whose just come back from injury.

Looking forward to this now.
