My first match day thread. What can possibly go wrong, eh!!! Perhaps, I’m the lucky charm we have been missing all along.
Leipzig rested some of their key players in their last league game, so they are, or at least wanting to, going for the kill. Frankly, no body will blame them if they fancy their chances. Worse, way worse, teams have succeeded.
Fabinho, Milner, Origi and, surprise, surprise, Ben Davies are the latest occupants of the already overloaded treatment room. Meanwhile we have to be content with just the smiling faces of Naby Keita and Diogo Jota.
Probable starting XI??? I’m tempted to say, blowing in the wind. But I will wager Firmino will start.
TAA Kabak Henderson Robertson
Jones Wijnaldum Thiago
Salah Firmino Mane
But if it were up to me, which clearly isn’t, I would play Nat for Thiago and Shaqiri for Firmino with Henderson moving into midfield.
I know our shoulders have dropped, I know our moods are sour, I know even dreaming is tedious. But come on folks, we have been through worse, way, way, worse. We never stopped dreaming, we never stopped believing; even though we have been ridiculed for that. So let’s dream once more. Let’s believe in the lads and Klopp. Let’s slaughter those bulls (I will take 3-0) and roar YNWA.
