Ed025, Mignolet and Bravo look set to start the Community Shield. You're a brutally honest guy; how many goals do you think their could be? 😂.

{Ed025's Note - i actually think bravo is decent PB, i expect there will be a few goals in the game mate as they are 2 excellent attacking teams, im going 3-2 for city mate..

Agree0 Disagree0

I might see if I can get a special on every shot on target going in.

02 Aug 2019 16:09:40
Why is Migs starting over Allison?

02 Aug 2019 16:12:45
I try to like migs but he is just a poor keeper. Nice guy, good character but poor. That fernades goal brought back the memories of him being number one. It was embarrassing.

I worry a bit about the state of our back up/ reserve/ youth keepers if he is the 2nd best option.

02 Aug 2019 16:14:15
Virgil, I'm just speculating mate. Bravo is definitely starting as confirmed by Pep seeing as Ederson hasn't played much at in 2 months, but Alisson could very much start for us. He's played regularly all summer. I just wouldn't be surprised if Klopp goes mostly with players who have been available for longer than 6 days. I could be (I hope) totally wrong.

02 Aug 2019 16:23:20
Why would Mignolet start over Alisson?

02 Aug 2019 16:32:35
rubbishs and giggles Alex, it’s the only reason I can think.

02 Aug 2019 16:54:27
I expect Klopp to play the same team that he expects to put out against Norwich.

02 Aug 2019 16:58:39
Alisson will start I’m sure - we looked shaky at the back until he returned and he won’t want to lose any momentum now.

02 Aug 2019 17:36:17
I reckon
Trent matip vvd Robbo
Milner gini fabinho
Salah firmino origi

Probably firmino and salah off after 60 mins.
Midfield based upon fitness.

02 Aug 2019 17:50:52
Will mbappe start for Liverpool or are we waiting until Norwich?

02 Aug 2019 17:56:34
Hope you guys are all right. I have a feeling he might go with the lads who came back earlier (Not what I want him to do btw) similar to the team that started at Napoli.

Trent, Matip, Virg, Robbo
Hendo, Fab, Milner
Ox, Origi, Gini

I'm just not sure Klopp values it as anything more than another friendly and with only 6 subs I'm not sure he'll risk the likes of Bobby, Salah, Shaq, Alisson, Keita etc from the start. Hopefully most of them come back much fitter than expected because of their international involvement deep into the summer.

{Ed047's Note - I cant get my head around Matip starting ahead of Joe Gomez in any game for Liverpool.

Him and VVD are the mutts 🥜

02 Aug 2019 18:19:00
Mbappe was supposed to be a secret. Now that it's out in the open we are planning to pull him out of the bag at half time.

02 Aug 2019 18:20:58
I agree Ed047. Gomez and Virg should be first choice. Klopp's team selections throughout pre-season haven't made that look a forgone conclusion though. He seems to really rate Matip.

{Ed047's Note - it seems a little odd mate as they are just so good together and Allison, Trent, Gomez, VVD, Robertson and Fabinho are for me the best defensive unit in the league mate.

02 Aug 2019 19:01:37
Glad I sold my tickets 😂😂.

02 Aug 2019 21:38:15
Don’t see how you can call for matip to be benched. He played brilliant Last season. he starts for me . Even when joining the attack was better than Gomez. Deserves his place until such time he gets injured or messes up hopefully neither.

02 Aug 2019 22:38:16
Matip was good scouse john but after vvd, gomez was our best performer in the cb role.

02 Aug 2019 19:18:09
Ed47, it is simple. Matip has grabbed his chance in the last 5 months of the season and he earned the right to partner VVD. If Gomez wants his place back, he's going to have to rip that shirt off of Matip's back. That is football and people will need to get used to that.

Gomez may be a top talent with tremendous ability. However, he has Matip to deal with now and the fierce competition will only make him better. LFC have 4 CB's that can start for any top 6 team right now and that is testament to what Klopp has done with these players. If Matip starts the season with VVD, he would have earned it. It is that simple, really.

{Ed047's Note - Sorry for the late reply and I take your point RW but just don’t see Matip at the same level as Gomez mate.

It’s only my opinion but he looks head and shoulders the better defender and together last season up to his injury they were on another level altogether.

03 Aug 2019 01:27:05
Is Gomez up to speed yet, as right now I think Matip is further on in his fitness etc?

{Ed0333's Note - I think Gomez will take a while to get going again mate.

03 Aug 2019 01:55:22
Yeah matip did well when he stepped in but Gomez was injured not dropped for poor form. Up until his injury he was arguably only behind VVD as the best performing CB in the league. Their partnership was the best in Europe for first few months. Matip did well but our defence did start giving up a few more chances without Gomez. It's a new fresh season, Gomez is now fit and he's proven that his partnership with VVD is one of the best around. He has to start ahead of matip for me in our strongest defence. He will now know that matip will replace him if his performance level is not high, a great situation to have strong competition between CBs.
