PreMatch | Liverpool vs Cardiff | FA Cup 4th Round | Sunday February 6th 12:00h | Anfield

Potentially we play on that spare week as well.

Wait that’s a CL isn’t it, probably won’t then.

Anyone involved international I’d probably rest.

Is this game on TV :tv:

Oh yeah!

Let’s end the season on 50 major trophies (so, two more).

If you’re in the UK it’s on ITV.

If we go all the way in all competition we‘ll have 28 games in 16 weeks (+ international breaks).

The break comes at a very good time.

Managed to blag another day off work. Last round i was in the Kenny stand. This round I’ll be in the main stand. Want a nice mix of kids and experience. Cup runs are great for morale, just look at the LC. Give a few of the kids a chance to test thir mettle against championship players while keeping enough experience in to manage the game.


Seems that the players were given a few days off.


Is that Dubai???

This one will be a mix of youth and first team. There are a flurry of games after that leading to the European Cup match in Milan so we will want to be bringing players up to speed again. The 5 subs are essential for that.

We can’t really say exactly who will start until the internationals are over. Keita is already coming home and there is a good chance that one of Salah or Mane will be back before then.

There are too many senior players who can do with some pitch-time, specially to keep them sharp in the case they are needed in the PL & CL games.

Kelleher: six games, 540 minutes

Tsimikas: 16 games, 1057 minutes
Neco: eight games, 387 minutes

Konaté: 13 games, 1078 minutes
Gomez: 12 games, 440 minutes
Nat: four games, 224 minutes could be sold during this window

Curtis: 15 games, 997 minutes
Milner: 22 games, 872 minutes
Thiago: 14 games, 792 minutes fitness permitting
Keïta: 16 games, 745 minutes fitness permitting
Morton: eight games, 515 minutes
Elliott: four games, 250 minutes possibly too early to return

Firmino: 20 games, 1038 minutes
Minamino: 18 games, 732 minutes
Origi: ten games, 393 minutes fitness permitting
Gordon: four games, 242 minutes

Sorry to sound like a sour old git, but it grates me that the players think they have to advertise a place like Dubai by playing golf there and publishing pics from themselves. Dubai is a part of the UAE, who are more than questionable on a political level and are currently involved in waging a murderous war in Yemen. Not impressed at all.

There, I’ve had my say, and will now take my coat…


Yeah I agree I find that programme on BBC 2 equally deplorable.


Yeah, I didn’t like that either. Are we doing a warm-weather camp there again or something?

No suggestion we were heading out, I assume the players might have been given the ability as long as they went together.

If not glad to see the lads together but yeah

Expecting a starting11 similar to those who started vs Preston and Norwich in the League Cup.

And probably none of them is going to start vs Leicester a few days later.

I don’t think JK will go into the Leicester game with a team full of players who haven’t kicked a ball for 18 days.

I think we’ll be more or less full strength for Cardiff with the likes of Divock (if fit), Gomez and Tsimikas getting a good half hour too.


I think both of you are wrong. We have five games in 13 days and Klopp will keep shuffling his pack. It’s a matter of managing the minutes of those who have already played a lot (Henderson, VVD) while giving minutes to the irregulars (Keita, Tsimikas).
