    I think this is the first league game that hasn't been on NBCSN or NBC, so hasn't been bad yet. It's the CL that we've gotten the shaft from here.

    They will no doubt attempt to kick out playmakers off the park without retribution. whereas we will get booked for the slightest touch.
    Fast start, maintain the press and force them to come out and get the ball. They will no doubt have a 4-5-1 or something even more defensive. If we break them down early even better, move the ball quickly and we will triumph hopefully without injuries.

    I wonder whether he may play as a DM with Fernandinho in his 30's and coming in from South America.

    Defensively risky, but you never know with Pep.

    Bit of rotation,South American late returners get a rest with half an eye on Tuesday yet still a very strong side.

    Looks like they'll have a makeshift defence with Bruno Martins Indi and Ryan Shawcross both ruled out. Joe Allen is a major doubt too.

    Curious as to why you think we will go four at the back

    Really? Based on recent history! Especially when they come to our patch. And the 'cue' word was 'seem?'

    Think this is PEPs preferred formation he played it at Chelsea away so can't see him changing it think the 5 will only be used in massive champions league games from now on.

    Bit of a mis-use of statistics .
    Bookies odds historically taken over a large number of games have been pretty good indicators of the chances of a win .
    Asking people a question is not and should not give rise to a particularly accurate prediction as everyone who is being asked is being asked to assign an outcome that is the most likely without being asked how strong the likelihood is.

    That's good.

    I'm going 4 - 0 to us.

    I don't think we should start rotating the team too much either. This match should be a priority, especially with the rags playing the dippers.
