    Liverpool are considering the possibility of fielding two teams in two competitions on the same day, with their Carabao Cup quarter-final against Aston Villa and Club World Cup semi-final potentially clashing. (Mirror)

    Why not 3 teams and rest the main men for the league / CL?

    send the under 16’s away for the FIFA nonsense or if their mummies won’t let them register a bunch of overweight middle aged randoms from a fan forum or somewhere sad like that.

    Do I have time to get my passport updated?
    Are you getting the beers for halftime or are we going in rounds?

    The fume will explode with those comments. Apparently we should just get on with it.

    Hahaha. Just get over it.

    Get over what? Time & space? Cos we'd have to break the rules of both to play in both games at their allocated times!

    Apparently we knew the schedule at the start of the season so it’s our fault this has happened.

    More specifically, or at least according the experts at Blue Moon, it is our fault for winning the Champions League last season.

    Lets face it, we deserve exactly what we are getting.

    Here’s a bonkers solution. Make the upcoming Villa game BOTH league and Cup at the same time! If the game is drawn after 90 minutes, the penalties will decide who will progress in the cup. It’s like a codeshare flight operated by 2 airlines - you’re physically in one plane, but it’s technically two flights with separate codes, prices etc.

    I expect to die during or shortly after my first sprint so probably best not to get involved in rounds. Do you have a valid Greggs rewards card? You can probably fly to Qatar on that.

    I don`t eat at Greggs (My Body is the size of a Temple)

    You didn`t say there would be sprinting so unless I can be the keeper I will have to declare myself unavailable :(

    Not a chance. I like Klopps idea of scrapping two legged semis for one off semis. Everyone wins.

    The two legs is stupid anyway

    Oh really ? - so it is our fault for not buying more senior players at 25M+ each just in case this scenario took place ? - you know what ? - I wish Arsenal were not so shit then maybe we would be out of this cup altogether.
