Southampton (A) - EFL Cup SF, 1st leg, 7:45pm, 11/01/17 - Utah Saints, U-U-U-Utah Saints!

Hopefully Klopp picks a stronger line-up than the one against Plymouth, and a few of those that have been out for a while can be in contention. Southampton have had a rough few weeks so we need to play on that and show more intensity, creativity and ruthlessness. If we do, then "Something Good" could come of this.

Put a low ball bid in for Van Djik tonight, get him unsettled and hopefully out the team, then that's us playing against them without their 2 best players.

 

We should be beating these though really. They seem to have gone right off the boil and the likes of Austin and Long belong at a Burnley or Hull

Long is a funny one. Every year he has a great patch where he plays really well and most of the season he looks nothing more than a lower premier league player. An absolute confidence player if ever there was one.

With the other shower probably playing a weakened side against hull on Tuesday,we'll have to follow suit. Would play trent and Moreno again with matip and Klavan. Coutinho gets 45 if he's fit enough. He can't start at united without some game time.

You're joking right? We are 2 games away from a cup final and you wanna play a weakened team because we have Man Utd away 4 days afterwards?

We put out 'weakened' sides in all our LC games this season with the exception of the game against derby.

 

As for the CL next season, Klopp will look to bring in players just like he didnt this season because we were not in Europe.

I don't think saints are better than our half and half team. I should have made it clearer and said play 3or4 of the young lads and not 8 like today. We should be able retrieve any disadvantage in the home leg with a full strength side. Mancs game is vital not to lose at least. I know we're close to a final but my personal priority is to try win the league and I'd sacrifice all the rest to try achieve that.

I can't see a position where Klopp would pick someone other than first choice. If Clyne and Milner are fit to play, they'll be the fullbacks. Coutinho will be on the bench, and hopefully get the last 20/25 minutes.

 

Big effort from the first teamers Wednesday and Sunday, and then they get the best part of a week's rest.

I'd play Firmino up top and save Sturridge for the United game.. that's the only first teamed I'd bench for this game.

For the replay I'd have Mignolet in goal and play one of the senior centre halves with Gomez especially if Matip is fit again. Move Lucas into midfield in place of Stewart alongside Can and play another senior attacker for an hour up top with Origi and Ojo. Or I might just play the same team.

Who'd be a manager.

For me something like

 

---------------Karius

TAA-Klavan-Gomes-Moreno

 

-----------------Lucas

-----------Milner--Can

Ojo----------------------Origi

----------Sturridge

 

Get the game killed off and oull Sturridge for Woodburn.

 

Still give most of the first team a rest.

    • Send them down if they can't comply.    Can't take any risks Lives before football and all that
    • Jürgen Klopp has spoken of his true joy in getting his squad back together for full-scale training ahead of the resumption of the Premier League season on the 17th of June.

      The Reds stand on the cusp of a deserved title victory, needing just two more wins from their remaining fixtures to clinch number 19.

      Rather than making up for lost time, Klopp told the Official site that he is taking a methodical approach.

      “We could work on all the things we wanted to work on. 

      “The first week was already really good with the small groups, I enjoyed that as well, because it was just important to get on track again, to get used to the pitch and ball and boots and all that stuff. 

      “And now we work on tactical things, that works really well.

      “We don't have to be match-fit now.

      “We try it with increasing intensity, day by day, but we have to be fit on the 19th or 20th, whichever day they will give us against Everton, I think. 

      “That’s the moment when we want to be at 100 per cent."

      Once the season resumes in earnest, it will be the best part of three months since a competitive match was played.

      In that time, players have been able to give their mind and body a rest, but with everything set to be condensed, the manager feels one season will roll into the next.  

      “It is a roundabout three weeks until the resumption.

      “That is good. We want to use that and we will. It’s our pre-season; how I said, we don’t expect a long break in between the seasons, so this is a very important period for us.

      “We never had nine weeks without football training in our lives – since we played football, pretty much. That’s all different but interesting as well.

      “We enjoy the situation, that’s really all good. 

      “And it makes all the difference for us, to be honest, to come together and have this hour or two here together.

      “You get this contact, feedback as well on the pitch directly, not via a computer or a screen. It's a massive, massive lift."

      The next step in the process is the actual dates of when the remaining fixtures will be played.

      Klopp says that is something the whole squad is looking forward to hearing about.   "Now of course, it’s more and more interesting when we play where, the times are really important because we will see how we can organise the travel stuff.    "So, the situation keeps us busy, that’s absolutely OK.   "But on the pitch everything is fine, that’s really great.   "Around, we organise it as good as possible and use the situation.”

    • Must have got some stick, it's been deleted now! But they're the senior club, dont you know?
    • Haha,woodison struggling to make the necessary requirements to stage games when the league resumes!   A number of Premier League clubs face a race against time to ensure their stadiums comply with new biosecure regulations being considered by top-flight officials. Ahead of football's planned return on June 17, clubs will be presented with a framework for their grounds in an attempt to minimise the spread of Covid-19 among those inside. Insiders say the proposals — yet to be presented — may cause substantial logistical issues for those with older or more compact homes.  Grounds such as Goodison Park, Turf Moor, Vicarage Road and Selhurst Park could struggle to comply with the regulations and may need extensive work to ensure they meet the criteria. The need for social distancing and ensuring areas are sterile will be at the forefront of the guidelines. And at certain grounds, teams may be asked to enter the field of play separately to minimise risk.  And while there is a confidence that those affected will be able to make the necessary amendments, the issue presents another barrier to overcome before matches can be held at their original venues. The Premier League declined to comment. But it is understood that following on from the early apparent success of new measures surrounding training grounds, similar protocols will be introduced in stadiums.  On Saturday, the top flight reported their latest test figures with zero positives. And they are understandably keen to try to minimise risk at stadiums. 'It's a set of measures that will form a biosecurity criteria,' a source explained. 'It is still being worked on but a lot of it will be similar to what has happened at the training grounds. 'That said, some of those with older and tighter stadiums may have their work cut out. 'The last thing the Premier League want is for football to return and for the grounds not to be as secure as the training grounds — and that is what this is all about. 'It may end up costing clubs quite a bit of money to ensure they comply, but it will happen.' A key area surrounds the layout of dressing rooms, and clubs with older stadiums will face a complex challenge. Players are being told to shower when returning home from training. A solution to how this will work after games will have to be found.   https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/sportsnews/article-8374677/Race-against-time-Premier-League-clubs-grounds-ready-return-action.html
