I'm getting nervous I'm not as confident as I was couple of weeks ago. I Think I'd be happier with Matip starting alongside Virgil, just for the experience. But more than anything I would love Bobby to start . With mane and Salah. Even tho he ( Bobby) not been at his best I think we will need his work rate and trickery he due a goal in fact he due a brace.

Agree0 Disagree0

OP, being nervous is normal. As for team selection, no need sweating in things you can’t control. I don’t. Cos the manager picks a player I wouldn’t pick does not mean he is wrong. There are good reasons to pick either Matip or Ibou or Bobbie over Mane however, it is better to try to understand why a player is picked even if you disagree. That said, I would prefer Matip based mainly on experience while I would pick Mane over Bobbie cos clearly he is in way better form than Bobbie is right now.

27 May 2022 08:37:40
I have to respectfully disagree John. I'd have konate in as Vini Jr will be playing on that side and his recovery speed will be important, definitely an area he's better than matip in. And I don't think real will have faced an attacking 3 like Diaz, Mane and Salah before, they'll rip them apart. I had a vision last night of Mane netting a hat trick and cementing the ballon d'Or, and then announcing his new contract during the celebrations. Get yer money on it lads, and if you lose money, I'll personally say sorry to you all! 😁.

27 May 2022 08:40:27
Yes to Matip, no to Firmino.
Firmino is fifth choice, at best, when everyone is fit. His legs are not what they were, his link up play is erratic and he doesn't score very often.

27 May 2022 08:40:28
Whether it's Matip or Konate alongside VVD, will be a massive improvement on Nat Phillips and Kabak remember him he couldn't defend an "innocent man", which was the centre back pairing when Real Madrid beat us 3-1 in the quarter finals last year.

27 May 2022 09:04:59
Cos the manager picks a player I wouldn’t pick does not mean he is wrong

Made me chuckle that. One of the most outrageous sentences I’ve ever read on here 🤦🏻‍♂️🤣.

27 May 2022 09:15:11
I think matips speed of underrated. He's a bit like Virgil, long legs moving slowly but Cheers up the ground.
Anyone know if Thiago has trained and fabs continues to train?

27 May 2022 09:37:45
Put the nerves aside. we go this lads.

27 May 2022 09:40:39
It's nothing to do with speed. Konate can sometimes make mistakes just like wolves 1st goal. Think Klopp will go with experience. I just hope it's Hendo over Keita coz we need Hendo to keep a check on V Jnr.

27 May 2022 09:42:34
U don’t need as much speed when you can read the game. definitely hope Bobby starts with mo and mane. Either way I’m still crapping myself.

27 May 2022 09:45:33
Just really need the front 3 to be on form. I'd go Diaz, Mane and Salah, if all 3 hit a bit of form it should be enough

I'd def take a Mane hat trick too Rugby! Arguments for either or of Matip and Konate, I'd prob go for the pace of Konate but Matips reading of the game is better so could be either

All I keep getting going through my head if we win is Monica from friends screaming 7, 7,7 lol.

27 May 2022 10:28:49
I think Bobbys only started around 3 games in the last 2-3 months.

With 5 substitutions and the possibility of extra time as well this weekend if we win it, it’ll be as a squad rather than the starting 11.

27 May 2022 10:34:05
No chance Bobby plays, i'd def go Konate, his pace will be key, As long as no Keita in midfield and Diaz starts up top i'm happy, like you i was massively confident a couple of weeks ago before we had injuries at the wrong time, if everyone was 100% fit i'd say a comfortable win but now i'm still confident but maybe by an odd goal.

27 May 2022 11:18:42
Sorry, apologies for earlier typos. It's Friday night here in Oz and wine time is well underway.

27 May 2022 11:20:31
Why on earth would you be nervous about a game you're not playing in?

27 May 2022 11:22:17
John Terry had no pace but he read the game well which made it difficult to get past him, as well as the fact if he did make a mistake, he had other defenders to bail him out.

I believe we have the best centre back pairing in the world at the moment, with VVD and matip, so I’m pretty sure they, and Trent and Robbo, will be able to deal with whatever Real Madrid have for us. Remember, This is not the same Liverpool team that played them in the last champions league final we met at, we are way better. What it will boil down to is our attacking prowess, and midfield if no Thiago and/ or fabinho. This is the perfect occasion for salah to hit some form and cause havoc with Madrid’s dodgy defence.

27 May 2022 11:56:41
KT in fairness mate Terry was a quality player but under Mourinho Chelsea’s high line was the edge of their box. And on that note it shows what a player Matip must be because it’s not just Vvd that plays the offside trap on his own so successfully. The 3 other players either side of him all play their part and they play their part exceptionally well.

Wine Time Friday, Burley?

27 May 2022 12:56:54
So some of you want mo mane and bobby up front? Are you winding me up. Diaz is the man now.

27 May 2022 13:00:01
This is completely out of left field but I would put Salah, Mané and Diaz up front and then slot Firmino in right behind Mané in the AM position. Throw something entirely unexpected at Real Madrid. Firmino can take up the Keita role, and he's far more efficient in ball recovery, pressing and tackling. Bring in Thiago in the second half if he makes the roster, and stabilize things after we're ahead (hopefully) . Those who dare, usually win.

27 May 2022 13:06:52
Start origi …. see the world burn.

27 May 2022 13:42:20
Origi is not fit and no way would I start Firmino against their three in midfield.
We tried playing Firmino, Jota, Salah and Mane the season before last at City and we did ok but I don't think Firmino is the same player now.

27 May 2022 14:10:38
Rigsby. Salah not the same player either. They both still got what it takes to start tho.

27 May 2022 14:29:29
In fairness Salah’s drop in form has been a few months. Bobbys a few years. Might sound harsh but it’s the truth.

If we’re going to give criticism it needs to not be double standards. Only a few months ago Mane was getting pelters that he was finished because he was approaching 30. The knives come out for Jota everytime he gives the ball away. But nothing gets mentioned about Bobby apart from he creates space, other forwards can’t score without him and he’s the one that links up all our play despite being 4th in the forwards for ball retention this season.

Truth is Bobby is a very good player and has been great for us during his time here, but he’s only started 10 league and 2 CL games this season and we’ve not done too bad in the other 28 league and 10 CL games without him.

27 May 2022 14:50:40
The team picks itself for me aside from Matip and Konate, but that's just a tactical switch either way. Alisson, trent, matip/ konate, Virj, Robbo, Thiago, Fab, Hendo, Diaz, mane, salah.

27 May 2022 16:24:42
I'd go with that too Ashy - Matip or Konate, could go either way but I like that midfield. Is Thiago fit to play does anyone know?

Def has to be Fab and Hendo in the other 2 - up front I think Mane, Salah and Diaz pick themselves- what a time for Salah to rediscover his form eh? And I hope Mane and Diaz play well, they've both been in good form as the season came to a close

Come on Liverpool bring it home!

27 May 2022 17:16:07
That's fair enough, John, but Salah will start in his usual position.
I wouldn't play him in midfield because he hasn't been at it upfront lately. And Firmino hasn't played much at all recently.
I think it'd be a risk starting Firmino anywhere but especially in midfield.
It'd be a risk not starting Salah.
He wants this one.
Go and 'get them', Mo.
