I've been dreading this for no real reason, but I've just looked at the league table and remembered that we're really good.

 

0-2 to the LFC. Fabinho comes of age as the new Cruyff. 

 

 

It’s the media narrative going on about ‘2 defeats in a row’ when it was a completely different team last game.

LFC boosted by good luck before Brighton clash; Hughton forced to field journeyman

LFC boosted by good luck before Brighton clash; Hughton forced to field journeyman

Brighton will not be able to field their excellent goalkeeper Maty Ryan against Liverpool on Saturday.

The Australian is at the Asia Cup and as a result, David Button will guard Brighton’s net at the Amex.

 

The 29-year-old is at his 17th club, having spent various seasons on loan to non-league teams while owned by Tottenham between 2008 and 2012.

Most recently, Button played for Fulham in the Championship, before losing his place midway through last season and transferring to Brighton as Ryan’s understudy in the summer.

Elsewhere, Alireza Jahanbakhsh is also at the Asia Cup, while the impressive Jose Izquierdo and Bernardo are both injured.

Liverpool of course have our own issues, with three senior central defenders, Joe Gomez, Joel Matip and Dejan Lovren, all unavailable due to fitness issues.

Fabinho will deputise alongside Virgil van Dijk, and will be charged with keeping experienced, physical forward Glenn Murray quiet.

We beat Brighton 1-0 at home this term, but will hopefully be able to put on a more fluid performance this time around – although in truth – three points is our only real concern at this stage.

We'll have 89% possession, 38 shots, 25 on target and their nobody keeper will save them all, never to be heard of again. 0-0. 

I'd bite your arm off for that right now

Cunts are coming out of the woodwork thinking we're going to hit a bad patch. It's our job to stifle them and have them quickly forget about that. City game was absolutely devastating result, Wolves a total irrelevance. Time to make our statement. Brighton are a decent side this year and have a good home record, but we beat these 9-1 on aggregate last year. The home game in particular was one of the most one sided games of football I've ever watched and we were denied around 3 blatant pens, only beat them 1-0 this season, but we were really not playing fluently and grinding out results at that stage. Expect a huge response from us and a comfortable 3-0 win, with all the front 3 scoring and forgetting that Fabinho even had to play CB.

I think we will negotiate this game one way or another although it may not be pretty.

Fabhino will probably be OK and Matip and Gomez are coming back soon form what we hear.

My main concern is Van Dyjk and has been all along. It's odds against I reckon that he will stay injury free for the rest of the season.

The defensive situation does not fill me with confidence, but we're still dead good at putting the ball in the opposition net. Could end up being a right old ding-dong, like the pre-Virgil days.

Based on the fact that at the pace the game is played at now and the work VvD gets through it's not realistic to expect him to line up for all the remaining games.

After watching the "Sunderland til I die" series on Netflix, I was sooooooo hoping it would be Jason Steele between the sticks for them tomorrow. I'm guessing that Button character is still some way off their first keeper? Hoping for an Allison to Mignolet drop-off. In that case we will put 6 past them. I'm going for a measly 4-1 win to remain on the cautious side.

    • 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.
