You Know you really want to

Recommended Posts

If we, let's say played a CL final tomorrow, my team would be (not taking injuries in consideration):

 

Reina

Finnan - Carra - Hyypia - Riise

Gerrard - Alonso - Sissoko - Aurelio

Crouch - Kuyt

The same as Paco's.

 

I would also play the same team most of the time only changing it to give players an occasional rest rather than a rotation policy. I feel most players benefit from a run of games were they can build up an understanding. Hopefully now the Internationals are out of the way we will have more of a settled team.

So go and do it and pick your best 11 from the current squad.

 

Exclude current form and injuries ie you can include Riiise and Alonso but if the game was tomorrow you probably leave Alonso out and Riise wouldnt be fit

 

So if you had a must win game what team would you pick, not what Rafa would pick but who would you pick

 

Here's mine

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

----------------Reina-----------------------

Finnan-------Carra------Agger---------Riise

Gerrard------Xabi-------Momo---------Gonzalez?

---------------Bellamy--------- Kuyt---------

 

The only touch call is LM where you could pick one of 4 players but ive gone for sheer pace with a goal threat

 

If i Had to pick the team for the chelsea game id bring in Pennant for Alonso and Warnock for Riise.

 

So whats your best 11

 

Can I have Dalglish?

Kenny to play, Kelly to play with.

 

Indeed.

 

Alternatively, put Kelly in the team with a kit that's too small for her and watch the opposition be rendered useless. Obviously, there is a slight flaw in this plan, in that our team will also not be able to function properly.

SG free role to do whatever he pleases, but not from the right, straight down the middle. This team has width, defensive solidity and enough threat going forward, and I think Kuyt would make an excellent lone striker, but could be rotated with Crouch. I know many disagree with Gerrard playing that role but I'd like to see that team start. Against weaker teams at home it wouldn't be appropriate.

 

I'm not saying that's the strongest XI, just a team I'd like to see. There's no such thing as a strongest first XI imo.

I spoke to Roy Evans and he advised me on 3-5-2 (those were the days..Babb,Ruddock, Scales..tasty indeed)

Think it’s a bit odd nobody has gone for the obvious, whats wrong with:

 

Reina

Finnan, Carragher, Agger, Riise

Sissoko, Alonso, Gerrard

Wide player (Pennant or Gonzalez or Garcia)

Bellamy, Kuyt

 

You either play Gerrard on the left of the three if Pennant’s playing or on the right if Gonzalez is playing and wherever you want when Garcia is playing.

 

You can swap Crouch for Kuyt, Warnock for Riise, Sami for Agger and Robbie for Bellamy when you want to ‘rotate’ without greatly weakening the side.

 

Dudek, Zenden, Aurelio and Paletta get to play in the league cup or when the others are crocked and suspended.

 

Kewell can have a nice long break.

This is virtually impossible as there are so many players with big question marks hanging over them. Assuming full fitness and peak of their powers, it'd be ten of last season's side plus Kuyt (who's there on a hunch rather than evidence in a Red shirt) for me. I don't see how anyone could put Danny Boy in at Sami's expense after two good games. It's a fucking insult to the big man.

 

Pepe

 

Finnan Carra Sami JAR

 

Gerrard Xabi Big Mo Kewell

 

Crouchinho Deadly Dirk

Just to be different, what about this?

 

----------------Pepe

 

------Carra----Hyypia----Agger

 

----------Momo-----Alonso

 

----Pennant----Gerrard---Gonzalez

 

----------Kuyt----- Bellamy

 

Sure, it needs Momo and Alonso to work their socks off, and center back cover is short, but I really think we could murder some teams with this line up.

I agree, it's 3-5-2 variation of the team I posted, again with Gerrard in the middle. Yours is more attacking. You can count on Momo to work his socks off that's for sure.

Could get ugly against a team with quality wingers though.

 

Still would be nice to see it against some of the "bad" teams in the premiership,

at least at Anfield.

I did consider a 3-5-2 team, but then remembered that I hate 3-5-2. I don't really know why, but I suppose for the same reason that I don't like the name "Premiership": it's too modern; too Sky.

    • That'll do psg, that'll do.    
    • Unable to do a job as good as Caramacs' but here you go using Heinze's video  
    • The outstanding start by Diogo Jota to his Liverpool career has been acknowledged with Michael Owen saying that the Portuguese star has been the best signing of the new Premier League season.   While Thiago was seen as the prize capture by the Reds during the Summer transfer window, it has been the 23 year-old former Wolves man who has made a seamless transition scoring nine goals in just 15 appearances in all competitions.   The quality performances of Jota have been worth their weight in gold when you consider the  amount of absentees Klopp has had to deal with through injury.   His rapid progress has caused Jurgen Klopp to shake up his front three with Roberto Firmino the man to miss out on a few occasions, a proposition that seemed highly unlikely just a few months ago.   That added depth to the front line has been seen by many as the final piece to the puzzle in Liverpool being the ultimate all-round team.   The performances of Jota have been worth their weight in gold when you consider the   amount of absentees Klopp has had to deal with.   Speaking on BT (via Metro) the former Reds striker said that consistent form of the forward has been a pleasant surprise.   “No one could’ve predicted that he would hit the ground running like he has.   “He’s surprised me with his pace, I must admit. I think he’s far quicker than I gave him credit for.    "Against Atalanta he was electric.   ‘He just shows composure, a lot of people panic, they just get a shot off as soon as they get any form of space. ‘I just think he’s scored headers, right foot, left foot, he’s scored everything so far and he’s looked the real deal in terms of linking play.   “Nobody could have envisaged the quality that he’s shown so far.”     Fellow former Liverpool striker Peter Crouch added that the ability of Jota to adapt his game has been clearly evident.   “Klopp’s obviously seen something in him, putting him more central or along the three of the strikers that they have. ‘He looks like a poacher.    “He’s getting goals in the six-yard box, he’s got headers, he’s got all types of goals.    “He’s a top, top signing."
