In a normal circumstance, I'd say "BRING ON THE SUPER CUP!". But after today's result, this feels like an unnecessary distraction and Liverpool are not ideal opponents to be playing next.

It's a cup at the end of the day. But focus has got to be on Leicester. Rest the key players coming back unless lamps wants to give them minutes and see what happens. Hopefully only 1 more game without rudiger and kante

At least we already know that Victimpool cannot complete the complete the world's first same season Septuple (Sextuple for non EPL teams as they have no 2nd League Cup).

(it is so hard to even have the shot, as you HAVE to win the CL the year before (to get into the FWCC) and also qualify for the Community Shield from the year before to even have a shot at it, so I wonder if Klopp was so so pissed after losing in pens to Shitty in the CS)

Jesus fucking christ if they had pulled that off, football would never have heard the end of that

Community Shield (Lost)

UEFA Super Cup

FIFA World Club Cup

League Cup

EPL Trophy

FA Cup

Champions League

 

The 2008-9 and 2009-10 Barca teams did win the only Sextuple ever (there is no League Cup in Spain, only the Copa del Rey, so only 6 trophies possible) but it was in a calendar year, not the exact same squad.  In 2009 they won (in order) 2008-9 Copa del Rey, 2008-9 La Liga title, 2008-9 CL, then in summer/fall 2009 they won the 2009 Super Copa de Espana (the Spanish version of our CS) then the 2009 UEFA Super Cup and in December, the 2009 FIFA World Club Championship. The rest of the 2009-10 season they won La Liga, but got upset in the round of 16 in the the Copa del Rey (by Sevilla, who won it) and got knocked out of the CL in the semis by Mo's Inter Milan, who also won it.

They just missed out on doing another calendar year Sextuple in 2011, when they lost to Real in the Copa del Rey final 1 nil in extra time via a 103rd minute CR7 goal. To show hard hard it is to do a SAME SEASON Sextuple (for EPL teams a Septuple) even that 2010-11 Barca team could not have done it as that 2010 CL semi final loss meant no Super Cup or FWCC in the fall of 2010.

To do same season, you HAVE to win back to back Champions Leagues AND qualify for the league kick off cup from the year before's results.

2016-17 Real Madrid missed out doing a same calendar year Sextuple (2017) when they failed to win the 2016-17 Copa del Rey. (Celta Vigo knocked them out in a MASSIVE upset in the quarterfinals), and again even they could not done it all in same season, as they did not qualify for the 2016 Super Copa de Espana from the year before (even though they did the hard part and won the 2016 UEFA Super Cup and the 2016 FWCC.. Real's 5 in a row European Cup (now the CL) winners back from 1956-1960 never won the Copa del Rey ONCE in the whole span.

It is insanely hard to do a calendar year one, let alone a same season one. I doubt we ever see a same season one unless it is next seasons Shitty (or then next couple of years Shitty) or Barca (Messi is ageing so they are truly under the cosh time wise)  One of them has to win the CL this season to set it all up, plus they have to qualify for CS/Super Copa in summer 2020) Liverpool is not deep enough to keep having superb CL shots and they have never won an EPL title. Also, it is sorta lame to not have a League Cup, so it can only truly be done by an EPL team (the full Septuple, although hats off to even a same season Sextuple from another league)

This is a very interesting match. Will lamp change our approach and play a lower defensivreline or keep higher line. 

Will lamp keep his building from the back strategy or just play long ball. 

I certainly don't see us playing Barkley on the left wing. We can get away with it facing awb who is not really a threat offensively. Pool on the other hand has two wb who can create goal.

Dont want to see Zouma start, or Aspi for that matter. Both were very poor against Man Utd. I would start Bats instead of Tammy too and Pulisic instead of Mount. Bring Mount on after 60 minutes as his pace in the last 30 mins may generate something. Kante instead of Jorginho.  Pedro needs to stop giving the ball away in dangerous areas as he caused us untold damage against Utd. We will suffer as we dont have a proven goalscorer, so if we do score we will need to be tight....And I'm afraid that at the moment we are unable to be that as a unit. Still, we knew this season was gonna be tough so lets just ride this period out and push on. KTBFFH

They may win World club Cup and super Cup and that's about it.

A few selection changes are a must after yesterday. Chances will present themselves on Wednesday, but it will come down to how clinical we are.

Exactly. If we go with a similar approach and starting line up, we will get thrashed again.

They obviously defend better as a team than us at this point but have read/heard Liverpool's defence hasn't been quite as tight as they were last season. So maybe, just maybe, we have a chance if we take our chances AND defend properly!
