  1. 1. TLW picks the team v Stoke



Recommended Posts

i would keep kuyt on the right, and play yossi off torres. Stoke will come to defend and dont think they'll offer too much on the break, so if gerrard is back in centre mid he can still bomb forward knowing the chief is there to cover him. Hopefully with yossis clever movement he create a few openings for gerrard. Oh and babel can play left back.... in the changing rooms

If available:

 

Reina

Johnson Carra Skrtel Insua

Gerrard Mascherano

Kuyt Benayoun Riera

Torres

 

Attack like stink from the first minute and rest players when we are 3-0 up or more.

 

If Skrtel isn't available play Martin Kelly.

As I have just posted on TTWAR:-

 

Liverpool 0

Stoke City 1 (Shawcross 70)

 

We'll miss a pen first half, give away a silly throw in from which Shawcross will score from Delap's throw, and Benny Tez will bleat like a girl about not getting a second penno.

 

He will then try and justify picking Lucas (again), and Babel (again) ahead of putting Gerrard in the middle, Benayoun behind El Nino, and playing Bert on the left.

 

Who knows, 2 defeats, a lack of money, he could go by the weekend!!

Surely a bigger priority than replacing Lucas in the middle is ensuring that Benayoun plays? He made all the difference on Sunday. He was the anti-Babel - finding the spaces where he could receive the ball, running, creating space for others, making clever passes etc. He improved both ball retention and use of the ball when in possession.

 

Heresy though it is to say so, I would actually drop Mascherano for this game as I can't see there being much need for closing down space and winning the ball in the middle of the park. Stoke will either hit it long from the keeper and/or try to win set pieces in our final 3rd. Play Gerrard and Lucas in the middle, Benayoun behind Torres and Riera out wide and we will be a more effective attackoing unit than we were on Sunday.

Not as tiresome as your post. For the record, I negged you too.

 

Oh woe is me - multiple neggings - how will I show my face at home, now that some nasty people on an internet site have classed me as a massive tool?

 

What a personal disaster!!:eek:

you could have pele, maradonna, daglish, rush, robbie, owen and torres upfront. But if you can get the ball up to em then they might as well not even be on the pitch.

 

We no longer have the natural thread of Alonso to provide the ball through the team and I imagine Mascha is doing 50% more work to allow for the incredibly avergae Lucas.

 

Gerrard in the middle for me to bulk up the midfield especially as we have a weaker back 4 at the mo. Yossi in behind torres to provide the creative link.

They got plenty of ball they just wasted it.

Lineup : Same as weekend except for Benayoun instead of Babel.

 

Score : 1-0.

I think We will control the game, they will actually attack a little bit, maybe on the counter. We Will nick a goal, and it will be an improved performancce from the weekend.

 

Scorers: Skrtel.

This I agree with, but i dont agree with dropping masch, surely lucas will give away more free kicks in the final third, lucas cant play this game, especially with skrtel not being 100% so surely the chief plays by default? offering gerrard more protection to go forward than lucas can?

as excited as i am for first home game of the season, i can't see Rafa changing his squad to much except maybe a staring 11 place for yossi instead of babel. This will be Liverpool knocking at the door all match and Stoke saying "sorry boys no one is home, this door isn't coming open!"

 

Liverpool 0 - 0 Stoke

 

resulting in Rafa bashing on TLW by 9.40 pm.

    • It will be our fault somehow.      The elected Mayor of Liverpool, Joe Anderson, has been arrested.   The city leader was arrested earlier today by Merseyside Police along with four other men in connection with offences of bribery and witness intimidation as part of an investigation into building and development contracts in Liverpool. Detectives made arrests at addresses throughout the city as well as Ormskirk and Southport.  The arrests are part of "an ongoing investigation", police said today.   Confirming the details of the arrests police said the following five people had been arrested: A 72-year-old man, from Aigburth, has been arrested on suspicion of witness intimidation. A 62-year-old man, from Old Swan has been arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to commit bribery and witness intimidation. A 33-year-old man, from West Derby, has been arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to commit bribery and witness intimidation. A 46-year-old man, from Ainsdale, has been arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to commit bribery and witness intimidation. A 25-year-old man, from, Ormskirk, has been arrested on suspicion of witness intimidation. The ECHO understands that the 62-year-old man arrested is the directly elected Mayor of Liverpool Joe Anderson.   The Labour Party politician has led the city since 2010 and has been Mayor since 2012. Last year he secured the Labour Party selection to run to be Mayor of the city for a third term at May's delayed elections. A Liverpool City Council spokesperson said: “Liverpool City Council is co-operating with Merseyside Police in relation to its ongoing investigation. We do not comment on matters relating to individuals.”    
    • Wonder if joe Anderson’s arrest will affect the BMD development?
    • Career-wise, Tuchel is basically the German Brendan Rodgers. Did well at a small club, almost did very well at a big club, then got some trophies at clubs where they're a given. He's fine, but before he proves otherwise, you'll be disappointed.
    • Elsewhere, Everton’s stuttering title challenge *sniggers* suffered another blow.   Just a gift that keeps on giving. Taken from GOT.     Crazy league this season points wise we are practically in a title race still. We only had to produce mediocre form in the last 6 games and we’d be near top of not top. If we can catch a bit of form now get players in jan and we can still achieve.
    • Things will get awkward when they have to decide if it's in yet, despite you hammering away like a randy spaniel and grunting like an East German female weightlifter.
