Not ashamed to admit I got emotional as the final whistle went, I was 6 the last time we beat them at Anfield and I don't remember any of it.  When we failed to beat their kids in the FA Cup, and

I can't remember the last time I felt this happy. I am stoned, drunk, and just on top of the world. It's been more than half of my fucking life waiting to see us win at that shit hole again, and

It’s here, derby day.  Hoping for a miracle win here or draw, just don’t want another loss.  
 

 

                Pickford

Godfrey Mina keane digne

                   Allan

         Doucoure  gomes

james          DCL    Richarlison

Think this'll likely be the XI with the exception of Mina. Carlo said he's doubtful for Saturday. I am hoping for a Godfrey/Keane partnership but have a sinking feeling it'll be Holgate/Keane with Godfrey at RB like you had it

Best chance we're going to get to break the hoodoo considering their in poor form, have to play in the Champions League just before it and don't have any fans in the ground, not to mention that their best player is out injured and their goalkeeper is in bizarre form.

They'll have had a day extra rest than us, so I don't know why the CL game comes into your thinking really.

We went to pieces against their kids in the cup there last season. It's a mental thing as much as anything for us and until we shift out a few and get more players in who have a better mentality it'll continue to be the case.

Plus, I'm really struggling at times to see what Carlo's game plan is, what sort of style he wants us to have. It's all very mish mash at the minute.

                  Pickford

Coleman  Keane  Godfrey    Digne

       Doucoure   Allan    Davies

  DCL          James         Richarlison

I think a similar set up as we had against Utd. Their full backs like to attack, so on any counter get at them in the space they leave on the flanks, and pull centre halves out of position.

One thing I was please to see with when we played city was on a rear attacks we actually did it in numbers. Same again please.

I have a feeling it will be 3 at the back...

           Holgate Keane Godfrey

Coleman                                  Digne

                 Doucoure Allan

James                                Gylfi    
                    
                    Richarlison

Dream: James thunderbolt from 25 yards in stoppage time to cap 4-3 win, first win at Anfield since 1999.

Reality: Lose 2-0 and DCL and Allan do their hamstrings and have to be subbed off first half. 

One day, one fucking day, the top of the mountain is going to feel so good. I just hope to still be alive when it happens. COYB.

Look at the pictures used. They're definitely not trying to stoke any flames.

The worst part is that’s it’s been set up that If a liverpool player makes a truly horrible challenge that breaks one of our players legs, justice will have been served.

Absolutely pathetic from the media and liverpool. I remember when Eduardo got his leg broken in a horrible tackle and there was nothing near to this level for that.

Woke at 4AM here in the states, first thing I thought of was this match. Would love at the very least a draw but who knows. Going to need to be disciplined and not get sucked in to any nonsense. I worry about a guys like Richarlison and Holgate who seem like their emotions can get the better of them and could get a red card.. Come on you Blues

I also think this game could be a bit spicy - It wouldn't surprise me if Liverpool put some big hits in and maybe look for a bit Van Dyke retribution. Been plenty of unnecessary talk in the media about the Pickford tackle again .  Our players need to be professional and not get sucked in to any of this rubbish. Ref needs to be on the look out any sly Liverpool digs and nip it in the bud.

Standard four at the back with Digne as a left winger as opposed to left back IMO. James on the right with Sigurdsson in the middle and Charlie up top. 

In other news, I've felt sick all day. Fucking hate derby day.

 I quite like Digne as a winger in games against the top teams.  Great going forward, but proper cover defensively as well.

I'm not sure it is 442. It was my first thought as well but is Carlo going to risk James up against one of the most attacking full backs in the league? 

I would put someone else's money on it being 532, with James doing what he pleases.

This was my thinking. Have him float around wherever he wants in front of the midfield three

So do I for slightly different reasons being Godfrey is far better at the defensive aspect of being a LB, but far worse in the offensive aspects, but seem to work well as a pair. 
Not quite a Baines Pienaar partnership but keep working at it and you never know.

DCL can’t be physically fit or it would be a no brainer that he starts, because he’s definitely match fit, I can understand Allan not starting because of match fitness. 

Yeah DCL not starting is not a good sign. Worries me about him even coming in as a sub because if he’s not fit enough to start, sounds like a prime opportunity for aggravation.
