Once again no game for us in midweek while they have a FA Cup replay against Wolves on Wednesday.

Will help us in the long term but I think after 'long' breaks, warm weather camps and international breaks we often have bad performances. This will definitely be a very tight game.

Think we will drop points until the end of the season but hopefully not in this one. Would be nice to have beaten every PL at least once this season.

Don’t want them to be able to ‚Liverpool might have won the league but the weren’t able to beat us in two games'

Dear Jürgen.

I hope that you are well. With regards to this weekend’s match, please do not play Manchester United’s reputation. Realise instead that it isn’t 1999 any more and that they’re utter wank these days; let our boys play their natural game, sit back and watch us batter them 5-0.

Regards,

Well I said spurs game would be tight and bitty as they will (and did) sit back and try and catch us with pace up top. United will do the same. It’s the type of game Ole has them geared up for.
Martial Rashford and James can be dangerous if we switch off or allow too much space.
Midfield we should dominate but they do have a lot of water carriers that are more than happy to just block the opposition.
Their defence isn’t great but they will sit deeper than a cannon ball at the bottom of the Mariana Trench.
It’s pretty much a Derby game. In the 90s we used to raise their game when they played us so I expect them to do the same.
3-1 win. Salah will break his drought against them.
Or 1-1. If we don’t play to their strengths and respect them as if they are great.

I think we'll fucking batter them,4-0,it's a good job Ole got a good win yesterday because it's going to be painful for them.
Would love a statement performance against these bastards, but realistically they tend to do alright when teams give them space to counter into. It’s when teams sit off and ask to be broken down that they struggle.

I think another affair like Spurs in order. They’ll sit back, we’ll dominate. We’ll miss some chances and they’ll be some nervy moments.

I reckon that’s the team. It would be nice for Minamino and Fab to get some minutes. And I’d have a shoot on sight policy with butterfingers in their goal.

This is where I think @PeachesEnRegalia tactical analysis is due.

No nervous, sitting on stool, puking up bullshit from that big girls blouse @Alright Now, and enough of leaving it to Jurgen (you hear me @Commando ?) ...... you know better than he does.

But I'm in the mood to give the Mancs a proper beating. I say 10-0. Like proper. Spanking.

In the KOP for this one.

r.Loud and clear. (y)

However, I do think that Jurgen will know the personnel, tactics and formation to see us through this game. :p

We've only lost once in the last nine games against them.

On the other hand we've only won twice in that time.

I'm not worried about losing this one, but like the Tottenham one, it is possible they could try and bore their way to a draw.

Need to tighten up our finishing , and then we shouldn't have any problems getting the three points.

We don't do well against this bunch at the Ole Toilet but at Anfield it's a different matter. No holds barred.
If we don't severely batter this pile of horse shit I will be extremely disappointed (I'll get it in now, Klopp out!).
So a nice 4-0 would keep me happy.
Btw TAA agrees with me. (y) :)

Spot on with your prediction. I'm not expecting fireworks from us. I think clean-sheets are vital currently because then only one of our attackers needs to have his shooting boots on; as seems to have become customary.

we're gonna batter them like a ginger step-kid
Why is it okay to use 'ginger' like this but not, say, 'crooked nose' or 'wide nose' or 'slanty eyed' or 'afro haired'?
Ginger intimates Celtic heritage as the others likewise suggest Jewish; African; or Asian. The last three are clearly not okay, so why is the first.

Well you would hope we are fit for the game as we looked shagged in the last 20 of the Spurs game. That was a worry.

We need to realise that we're gonna be playing a Europa league (at a push) standard team, not a top 4 team. This lot are not our rivals or contenders on the pitch anymore. Play like we're playing a team who will sit back and be happy with a draw. Manage the game as if we are playing a bang average team not the scum of the 90s. Love to smash them but expect a scrappy 2-0 win. Once we beat them by whatever score I'll be happy

It might be too soon for Fab, but, with Nat Phillips returning to complete his loan at Stuttgart, it looks like Matip will be on the bench.

I want to swat these aside like a midge that's annoying you.

I expect the reality to be very different though.
