I usually shout to go full strength in cups as want trophies...but we need to rest our best team after an intense period and to be ready for Brighton where we play before our rivals and have a chance to ask them the question again.

 

I'd go:

 

Mignolet

 

Clyne

Masterson

Lovren

Moreno

 

Henderson

Jones

Wijnaldum

 

Sturridge

Origi

Lallana

 

Fuck it - we are in a dog fight for title and we can't afford to lose any key players and we can't sustain a title tilt and europe and the cup.

Wonder how many times the 1988 FA Cup final will get mentioned by BT or BBC this season every time a lower league team draws a Premier league team?

Half strength side, and a scrappy win please.

Half strength is worse because you’ll have important players at risk of a loss. By writing it off entirely it becomes a complete irrelevance to them.

I do say fuck this competition. And if we rest all first choice players I dont really see that it’ll hurt our confidence if we loose.

 

Expect Wolves to field a weakened team as well, so we may well beat them anyway.

Fair point. However, by writing it off entirely you could place undue pressure on the players in the next league game, as you've effectively shown them you've sacrificed a cup run for that.

Thing is, it’s not an important competition to most players nowadays. Domestic cups have always carried comparatively little weight across most of Europe and it’s the same here now. We’re top of the league and still in the CL. I think the first team players would react to the sacrificing of an FA Cup run as they did to an understrength side exiting the League Cup - not noticeably.

If we lose with a second string and talented kids, it will be forgotten about. If we draw/lose with our usual team, then that can't be good for confidence.

 

Our team need a rest. Robbo, Virg and the rest of them looked exhausted at the end.Lets give them an extra few days off. If Origi, lallana or sturridge plays well, that could be important in the title run in, as you never know when they might be needed. 

 

Jones, masterson and one of the young goalies to start. Bobby duncan on the bench.

Again, fair points, and I can't really disagree. Obviously I'd still prefer not to have back to back defeats piling on the pressure, but I guess a loss for a second string side shouldn't affect the starting XI.

Amazing what one loss can do.

 

As much as the Cup sadly no longer matters, losing again could play with our heads... and even going a couple of rounds with some new faces would be beneficial perhaps.

 

I think we'll be a patchwork side and get through scrappily... working on the theory they won't knock us out twice in the space of 2 years.

    • Spurs seem to be having a defensive clearout. Aside from the fact that it's about time some of their better players (like Eriksen) get linked elsewhere they way all our better players always seemed to until recently, they'd have to spend big on a number of defenders. £30m seems to be the going rate for potential, rising to about £50m for English players thanks to the English tax, and since the likes of Trippier, Alderweireld and Rose have all been linked with moves away, that's probably £100m minimum just to stand still.   I'm surprised that Atletico are pushing for Trippier at £20m when Dani Alves (although older and probably wanting more money) is still available for free.
    • Didn't that 'esk' fella say they've spent £1m a month so far on plans for the stadium, if I was Meis I'd have all that too and be laughing all the way to the bank.    Why don't they also claim that the new stadium will also solve world hunger, cause world peace and bring in an era of complete nuclear disarmament, doesn't sound so far fetched when you see what bitters think.    So a stadium by a sewerage works, a team that is mainly mid-table, who will use that stadium probably 20 out of 365 days will solve all of Liverpool's problems in that area. What of the new issues that taking that stadium away from Goodison might cause?   Actually, I don't buy into their begging tactics. The area around Anfield (including around their wooden hut) benefits more from us than them right now. We (according to them) bring in far more visitors to the city and generally a lot more often than them. Costco probably has more visitors in a year than Everton would at the dock, and they'd spend more and they'd undoubtedly leave happier.      Admit it, they pick up that massive Main Stand that winds you up so much you blocked off part of your ground so your fans wouldn't have to look at it. They wouldn't want them waking up, realising that they are being taken for mugs.
