Liverpool v West Brom

Recommended Posts

It's a home game against West Brom. In spite of our inconsistent start to this season it's still a game we should win comfortably with the expensive talent we have at our disposal, Sturridge or no Sturridge. I think we'll do just that too with an early goal to settle any nerves. We haven't suddenly turned to shit, we just haven't got those early goals in games which do seem to be crucial to helping us get good results.

I would play Borini upfront.  Desperate times call for desperate measures.

 

Might aswell give someone who isnt static upfront, a chance when we are doing so badly.

Rogers needs to stop tinkering with the team so much. Same formation as last season with two up top (even if that's Borini and Balo). Get Borini doing the pressing with Lallana and Sterling doing the same. Familiarity is what brought us success last year and for some odd reason Rogers has lost sight of that.

Scrappy 1-0 win will do.

 

I'd happily take that as well, if it means a win and a clean sheet.

mignolet - I feel sorry for him. he makes 1 or 2 big saves a game but he makes big mistakes as well.

 

johnson - manquillo hasnt done much wrong but think we could do with more experience in team.

 

lovren and skrtel - best cb pair

 

moreno - enrique did well last night but moreno will be fresher.

 

Gerrard - top of the diamond

 

Hendo - right of diamond

 

lallana - left of diamond

 

coutinho - in the hole

 

sturridge/sterling - if sturridge is fit play him

 

balotelli/sterling - like to see how balotelli and sturridge get on but balo could easily be dropped as could sterling.

Basel aren't shit.

Basel have more recent Champions League experience than us but they an average side. We were absolutely gash and it came as no surprise.

This should lift our spirits with a win, with the added bonus of being able to give Irvine some stick

 

The following PL games against QPR, Hull and Newcastle are pretty tame too.

Sturridge usually gets right back into the flow of things following an injury, no taking 3/4 games to get upto speed.

 

If he's ready forget the bench, get him in the starting line up and take him off in the 2nd half when hopefully we are a goal or 3 up, rather that than bringing him off the bench with us scratching around desperate for a goal.

The next run of league games is "no excuses" territory.  Things could get a bit out of hand if we start dropping a lot of points in the next 4-5 weeks.

For anyone who's wondering the "Tactical Preview" is reserved for European competitions only.  So the next one will be Real Madrid.

it seems teams have worked out how to beat us.

 

defend deep to nullify counter attack

 

man mark gerrard so he cant pass the ball

 

do what we did so well last year - start fast

 

and if all else fails corners are as good as pens.

 

need some reverse psychology so what if:

 

we defend deep too

 

start wasting time immediately whilst also facing our demons and kick the ball out for a corner straight from the kick off.

 

play gerrard up front and balotelli dm

West Brom will work hard, be well organised, have a game plan which they'll stick to, and be full of confidence after some good results and seeing us struggle.

 

And we all know how well we do against those types of teams.

 

Still. 2-0. Let optimisim rule.
