What’s happening with this then? The game is literally less than 4 weeks away and there has been no mention of tickets or sale dates etc etc.

Just turn up on the day and buy tickets on the gate is it :D

In comparison to the Super Cup which info has been made available aprox 2 weeks ago (6-7 weeks before the event)

Come on get a bloody move on so people can organise their lives, travel and accommodation if need be!

I know we are getting 28k allocation but they’re leaving it a bit late to get them on sale (in relation to other games)

I think it would be no problem for Klopp to start Alisson rightaway even if he returns on the monday before this game but i think this is the kind of game where the manager would 'thank' Mignolet for his loyalty and start him.

For outfield players it's different of course - so Firmino very likely on bench.

Mané won't be back until this game.

So what lineup can we expect?

Mignolet
TAA Matip VvD Robertson
Wijnaldum Fabinho Henderson
Salah Origi Ox

If this game ends draw it will go straight to penaty shoot out so i think Milner will come from the bench to take one.

Sounds like Mane is likely to miss the Norwich game as well as this one, after reaching the ACN final - assuming he's given the standard three weeks off after.

I'd rather see Origi or Wilson wide-left than Ox... I know a few have been postulating such a thing in various threads but I'm not a fan of the idea.

Fuck it, play Brewster at CF and Origi on the left. Or Origi CF and Wilson LW.

You think it's not a good idea to throw Mbappe straight in from the off?

Ach, you're probably right, ease him in slowly. Damn your temperance.

I say we stick VVD up front with Robbo and TAA on the wings. Pep will have no clue how to react to it, and the Citeh defence will shit themselves silly at the thought of having to go up against VVD

They’ve changed the sales criteria so now you only need 10 games registered on your fan card.

Still a few hundred seats left too

If you agree to get a community shield tattoo if we should win, I’ll hop on the next plane.
Wtf? I get you a ticket to a game, and you turn it around that I have to earn your attendance.

Think the tattoo has got to your head mate....

Also, even if I did agree - we can only have won at the end of the game, so how do you use the ticket that is here waiting for you?

I think you need a tattoo on the other arm to balance you out a bit.

It’s basically bullshit that city will have 7 players missing. Their Copa America players will be back (the same as ours) Mahrez went to the final of the Afcon so will Be missing but not that he is going to be missed much anyhow
