    It’s a shame because the last tie against Arsenal was great and we are being forced to put out a team that will render it meaningless.

    Play a semi strong side in both then fly out the first teamers to make the final.

    15 games in 58 days is nuts.

    I can’t see us sustaining our title push with that many games.

    We are going to need all the luck in the world and we have to beat City on Sunday.

    Hopefully Napoli draw tonight, we beat them next week then we can send kids for the last meaningless game.

    Honestly does anyone give a flying fuck about the club World Cup? It's exhibition, no prestige nonsense. I’d rather try to win the Thai energy drink cup.

    "largely consistent"

    I hope we play
    Kelleher
    Williams Gomez Lovren
    Larouchi
    Chirivella Curtis Christie-Davies
    Elliot Brewster Longstaff

    Or something like that. Everyone else goes to Dubai or rests. Those in bold all have first team experience and are consistent with previous rounds. I couldn't care if we lost 6-0 but hopefully it is 6-6 and we win on penalties eventually.

    Considering its the only trophy the club have yet to win and it comes with the bragging rights of being the "best club in the world" course I want us to win it.

    Also we are pretty fortunate it's not being played in Japan like it used to in the past

    They were chatting about this on BT last night - theres a 23 man squad for the World thingie, with 12 subs. So they could play with just 6 subs in the first game, and leave 6 strong players for the Villa match, and bring them over for the final

    I’m sad that it’s not played in Japan like they used to... could have had a couple of good nights out.

    Just to clarify I'm not saying there's anything wrong with Japan. Far from it. I just meant if the club world cup game was being played there it'd be an even bigger conundrum given its further away than Qatar

    We should bring back Stevie, Hyypia and Xabi for this.
    They'll all play for free - and it will make the game fun.
    ANd of course, LUis Garcia too.

    If we're talking ex players there's only one I'd bring and it's Kuyt. He seems like the only one seriously fit enough to play well.

    Personally I'd send Mane home to Senegal and tell him to chil for 12 days and get him fresh for the rest of the season.
    Best player in the world right now and have been playing with no break for far too long, he'd obviously go to that shit CWC and probably wants to, but he really shouldn't.
