Would be great to have a cup run again but the League has to be our priority. Really want to beat Everton though and see who we draw next. Basically I never want us to lose but I’ll be over it by the next day if we do!

Yes, this. I think a defeat would hurt but would be for the best really, if I’m honest. I’ll be hoping we win when it starts though.

Yes. Did you think that when Watford rocked up with Pearson as manager before and after that game?

Pearson is 10 times the manager The Chosen One is. When Leicester were newly-promoted, with Pearson in charge, we scraped a dodgy, undeserved draw at Anfield. It's more than Moyes has managed for a very long time.

Klopp has said none of our injured players will be back in January. The run of fixtures since late November up to this fixture has to mean none of the regular back 4 can play. By skipping this they get a weeks rest into the legs, if they play then we're basically flogging them for 8 weeks when we don't need to.  Would anyone take a 6 week hammy injury for one of those in exchange for beating Everton? 

 

The rotation Klopp used so far together with the week off this would give them keeps them fresh right the way through to May. The position we have put our selves in will allow us to focus on the CL in the same way we did in April 2018. Our opponents at that stage (if we're still in it) will most likely be in a position to do that as well unless their English.

 

The reality is we would be fielding a reserve team against anyone other than Everton and possibly the Manchester clubs, with eyes on the bigger prizes should we really change plans just to increase the changes of beating a bunch of small timers? Stick out a team along the lines of this and give it a bash.

The reality of our league position is that we will almost certainly drop points in January and February  - but that would still leave us comfortably clear at the top.

 

By all means, rotate the squad, as we did in December - but don't ever consider shitting out of a competition like the FA Cup and especially not against those nobheads.

I don't think Klopp is going to be committed to this at all, and it won't bother him a bit if we go out. He was giving out not long back about if we draw in the next round, the replay would be played during the Premier League's supposed new mid-winter break.

 

I think he'll put out a mixture of a couple of regulars, some of our experienced back-up players and a few of the young lads, and still think we can still give Everton a game.

Neco Williams

Nat Phillips

Gomez

Robbo

Curtis Jones

Keita

Harvey Elliott

Origi

Shaqiri/Mané

Such a lousy draw.

 

OK most people probably aren't arsed about the cup and of course given our league situation then that of course has to be the priority.

 

But getting knocked out by that shower, no thanks - fuck that.

 

Really is a bastard of a draw - again.

He’s more than a little bit odd but seems an excellent manager. Did he buy many of Leicester’s title winning squad?

Would be funny if we knocked them out, then played the kids to throw the next round. Fumetastic.

I'd settle for that, although I don't like throwing competitions and still love the FA Cup.  But losing to the Blooshite is akin to shaving my bollocks with a broken bottle.  Just fucking NO to that shit.

Why do people keep thinking Shaqiri will ever play again?

Well, if Klopp says he's out for 7-10 days, that clearly means he's nearly dead.
