  1. A third home game in a week then. Southampton are the visitors on Saturday, fresh off being beaten at rock-bottom Norwich last weekend. What do we need? Power. Invention. Surefootedness. Shooting boots. Organisation. Fortitude. Freshness. Tenacity. Intelligence. Serenity. Style. I don’t ask for much. Last season’s game in May finished 2-0 to the Reds but we rode our luck a little bit. Defensive sloppiness presented Southampton with a handful of really good opportunities. We were OK at the other end though. Sadio contorted himself to get on the end of Mo’s cross to the far post, and Thiago opened his Liverpool account late on by drilling a shot low into the corner from the edge of the area. We had a better time of it in September 1982. We were reigning champions and it was the start of Sir Bob’s swansong at the end of an illustrious managerial career. We’d go on to retain both the league and the League Cup that season, and this early game against a now Keegan-less Southampton set an early marker. Whelan and Lawro each got 2 - his second a cracker - and Souey belted in another from long range past Shilton in a rampant 5-0 demolition at Anfield. They were a year or two away from being a really good side in their own right, but Southampton were still miles behind Liverpool’s dominant level. The big box office draw was part of a franchise. Back in the early 80s, franchises were still a reasonably rare sight. Star Wars, Rocky and Indiana Jones were the most obvious examples but other than that, they were the preserve of the horror genre. Amityville II: The Possession was what all the kids were going to see. In fact, the film is actually a prequel to The Amityville Horror. That was a reasonably good film based on real life events. This one is a shower of shit purely aimed at cashing in on continued interest in the whole Amityville media circus. If I’m making it sound like dogshit, that’s because it is. Swerve. Hasenhuttl’s team have been a strange bunch ever since he took over. Inconsistency is the norm for the Saints but under the Austrian, Southampton have had some wild peaks and troughs. They could go on runs where they looked like a side that could challenge for a European place one week, and the next get webbed all over the gaff by the likes of Leicester. Whatever challenge they present, Jurgen and the lads just need to focus on the game on its own merits, give it the right application and concentration, and get the job done. They know they can do it. We know they can do it. They just need to show why that’s the case, and not serve up dogshit.
