Nah, it's a made up game that we haven't always even bothered to take part in (1981).Some people feel the Super Cup is a low ranking trophy. I disagree with that and take the opposite view.
To play in the Super Cup you have to win either the European Champions League or the Europa Cup. With the Europa cup representing the best up coming teams in Europe.
So winning the Super Cup is somewhat one better then winning the Europa Cup.
The winner of the Super Cup has great marketing images that are highly appealing to the advertising companies that finance football.
I see the Super Cup ranking in status far above the League and FA cup on a world wide basis.
After tonight we will have won the Super Cup more times then Man United has won the Champions League, that sounds super to me, better still, City has not even started.
I dunno. He's always been a liability in all the defenses he's been in, prone to errors out of nowhere like our own Lovren, He got exposed big time for Brazil back when they were tore apart by Germany at the WC. Quite sure that's why Lampard go rid.Lampard selling David Luiz a few weeks before the super cup does not appear a smart move.
Luiz reminds me of Matip, he often carry’s the ball from just outside his own penalty box to the center line and passes the ball through the lines.
Luiz also reminds me of Fabiano, who slows down an attack by having a hustle dig out for the ball in central midfield.
Why not wait until January or sell him next week in the European market. Chelsea did not need the pocket change.
If Luiz is good enough for Arsenal, you would think he could have been called upon to reinforce the Chelsea defence, especially if Chelsea got an early lead.
Not the smartest move
I Think The FA Cup is also the oldest football competition in the world too so I imagine it'll be seen as a pretty prestigious competition to football fans outside of the UK (If any foreign reds on here could fill us in?)Nah, it's a made up game that we haven't always even bothered to take part in (1981).
It's like the PL champions playing the Championship winners for a trophy.
It's nice to win solely because it's an international trophy but it's not better than the FA Cup, for me at least.
Pretty sure its on both DAZN (stream) and Sky Sports (Pay TV and Stream)One thing bothering me is where this game is being shown in Germany. The office seems split between Sky Sport 1 and DAZN (apart from one guy who says ZDF but is a Schalke fan and apparently knows nothing).
Any German Reds know for sure?
Good lord! Go to your local store and buy the next size larger undies, you may be going through life a bit restricted.LFC need to provide more goal keeper protection and cover.
Unfortunately Trent is always out of position running to far down the wing.
Tent should be dropped and Matip play center with Gomez right back.
Likewise, LFC must assume Chelsea will score because of below par goal keeping.
So LFC must go all out and try to score 4 , and hopefully Chelsea scores no more then 2.
This game should not be allowed to go to penalties, LFC must go all out to win in normal time.
I suspect that if LFC get a strong upper hand, like man united did, Chelsea may collapse against the continues pressure of Manny, Mo and Bobby. How we feed these players from midfield will determine the end result.
I hold Milner & Wini Back, maybe Milner May have to Sub for Andy.
Probably Fab, Hendo, Keita go center
LFC should easy win this cup
Oops, my bad. Assumed we'd play on Sunday since we playing this evening. All the more reason to field the youngsters then. On that note, why does Chelsea get to play on Sunday? A bit unfair that.Is there.? I'd say as a Liverpool fan there is a far more important game on Saturday afternoon
Great, thankfully it doesn't look like this game being of no importance. We would have seen empty Liverpool buses instead.Landed in Istanbul, going to check my accomodation and straight to Taksim! Been all Liverpool fans so far, Turkish people supporting us as well. Saw an empty Chelsea bus that drives to their meeting point.
Up the Reds and let's get number 4 tonight!
To be fair, we did play Friday and they played Sunday coming into this one. But yes, it’s unfair nonetheless :well done:Oops, my bad. Assumed we'd play on Sunday since we playing this evening. All the more reason to field the youngsters then. On that note, why does Chelsea get to play on Sunday? A bit unfair that.
Dont give a fuck about Chelsea but this is a trophy and agsinst a bitter (plastic tasting) so you play your strongest side.Oops, my bad. Assumed we'd play on Sunday since we playing this evening.
