These two sides haven't met in a competitive fixture for 60 years, since the 1960/61 season when both were in the 2nd Division. The game at Lincoln's Sincil Bank that season, on 8th October 1960, finished 2-1 to the Reds thanks to a double from Sir Roger Hunt.

 

'Tell Laura I Love Her' by Ricky Valance was No1 in the charts at the time. I've never heard of it or him. Indeed I thought it was a typo and was supposed to read Richie Valens, and maybe it was a posthumous hit. The song it displaced at the top of the charts was none other than 'Apache' by The Shadows.

 

 

It's likely that we'll go with a youthful line-up like we did last year. Neil Critchley is no longer at the club, but I don't think Jurgen will need to sit this one out and let the youth team coach take charge as the fixture doesn't clash with our other first-team commitments. We don't play again in the league until next Monday. Perhaps Tsimikas and Jota will get a debut run-out, and other first-team fringe players like Curtis, Neco, Big Div, Ram Man and Taki will be included in the team/squad.

 

Apparently, either Arsenal or Leicester await in the next round if we get through. Just treat the fixture with respect, do all the right things and get through to the next round. We could win this trophy this season, or we could treat it as an irrelevance.

I've got no reason to dislike the Imps and I hear they've got a lovely cathedral.  Still, I want Liverpool B to destroy them like a pavlova beneath a Chieftain tank.

 

Just get these beat, Reds.

Tell Laura I love her is a classic. A warning to all boy racers.

I can't even read the title without going "bom bom bom-bom".

You must be younger than I thought, can’t believe you’ve never heard of ‘Tell Laura I love her’!! And I wasn’t even born in 1960.

I worked with a girl who went to The University of Lincoln. She was actually from Essex but Lincoln was where she studied. I found her a difficult personality, as much my fault as hers, but obviously I hold Lincoln responsible for the stress caused so hope we smash them.

Would she not put the lotion in the basket?

And there was me thinking they didn’t have a prayer.

I wouldn't drop Allison but it would be good to see Williams, Minamino, Jones, Ellit, Jota and Tsimikas get a game. Is Origi fit as well? 

 

Just fucking win. I don't want us fannying about with any tournament this year.

    • That run he went on in the 1990 World Cup against Brazil to set up Cannigia was great. They were proper snide in that tournament though.
    • Well I dont like to run any player into the ground, especially a young un like Neco. I just wonder what the coaching staff expect of him. He's a winger converted to a fullback. But, are the staff telling him to get forward every opportunity to kind of be like Trent or what?   Seemed to me Neco was frequently caught upfield and out of possession. He wasnt the only one to lose out possession last night and one or two more experienced players suffered the same.   But we are where we are. Despite thoughts to the contrary, we cant go out and just buy, buy, buy like city or chelsea.   I just want to see players like Neco find their feet and if that means he doesnt cross the half way line, fine, we take that hit until Trent is back and he concentrates on defending rather than try and be Trent 2.
    • *Meant to put this here instead of the match thread*   Of course, Neco is still young and Trent has set such a high standard, it'll be unfair to expect similar quality from him. He still has time to improve and hopefully does so.   The problem at the moment is Neco hasn't showed signs of progress since he got into the team. I reckon a large proportion of the 27 times he lost possession was caused by taking too many touches on the ball in his own half, trying to beat a man. Atlanta definitely did their homework on him based on that.   It has been a very noticeable thing. Rather than his teammates being blamed for passing him the ball, the focus should be on the young lad learning to keep it simple at the back. Rhys Williams is an example of a young lad keeping it simple with his passing at the back. 1 or 2 touch maximum, straight to a teammate.

    • I've never seen a ref be that lenient in a European game before. The likes of Atkinson and Riley are consistent at Premier League level with allowing a bit of a harder game, but usually at European level the refs err on the side of protecting the players.   Origi was shit last night but the couple of times he looked to run onto a pass he got scythed down with challenges that were absolutely nowhere near the ball. Tackles from behind were banned from top level footy in the mid 90s but were permitted to make a resurgence last night.   Wasn't just in Atalanta's favour either - Tsimikas got away with a few before he went in the book, and there were a few times one of our lads caught an opponent, held their hands up to say it was accidental, only to see the ref waving play on.   If anything we weren't going in hard enough. Maybe with a few of our more experienced lads on the pitch we could have adapted a bit, taken advantage of it. Ilicic and Gomez were excellent for them but might not have been so good after a reducer or two.
