    It wasn't even remotely good practice for Sunday.

    It was closer to playing a different fucking sport then it was to playing City.

    It was good to not try that hard for the 90 tbh and still win. That was the main aim, we succeeded entirely

    Obv. I honestly think Klopp would have taken the draw rather than have them run too much or work too hard in that match.

    Yep. Which is mad and if we weren't playing city would make sense. Here's hoping sterling gets a dead leg tomorrow and all is well

    We looked like we were conserving energy all game. We looked like we played like it was a friendly. As Jon pointed out it was only when Robbo came on that we saw somebody who hadn't got the memo and started sprinting around the place. The crowd responded like it was friendly. It was a listless meander where we fortunately still got the job done. Sunday will be very different. The crowd will be up for it, and the players will be up for it. Tonight looked like a distraction for everyone bar the Genk team and their support.

    Let me tell you something - I expect us to beat the rubbish that will come and visit us on Sunday - there was only ever one player I ever feared in that Man City side that has constantly caused us problems - Sane - he is out so I expect us to win the game on Sunday 3-1, or 4-1, if Klopp actually decides to go for a win. I just hope we show some aggression and really go for it.

    That was good practice regardless of what you think, especially for Salah, and Keita - they needed it.

    Surprised Salah started this one – hopefully this means his ankle is on the mend. He did everything so well, except the final shot or pass – we've seen him go through periods like that, I think as long as he's creating lots of chances the goals will come.

    I thought midfield with Fabinho, Keita and Gini in the attacking role generally worked really well – the huge edge in chances and possession usually means the midfield is doing something right. I'd like to see this combination more often. Unfortunately I was distracted in some periods of the game and can't really say anything more specific. Ox and Origi switched roles in the 2nd half – was it from the start of the second 45, anyone notice?

    First half it was Mo on the right, Ox centrally (false 9), Origi left.

    Second half, from the start, it was Mo centrally (proper 9), Origi right, Ox left.

    Genk's tactic seems to be defend 35 minutes each half and come at us last 10 minutes of each half? Almost worked for them.

    You know the only problem with this delightful theory?

    You're almost always, disastrously, horrifically wrong, about everything.

    I truly hope this bucks the trend, but your track record makes that a forlorn hope.

    Tremendous arrogance.

    City are a great side. It's going to be a tough game.

    The only confidence I draw is that we like to attacking centrally and their best DM is playing at CB and their quickest, strongest CB is missing the game.

    We should be able to score 2 or 3 against them.

    But Aggy vs Lovren isn't a good match up for us, and Klopp hasn't played TAA in the last 2 home league games against City? Surely he will break that trend this weekend, but Sterling up against him is a worry too.

    I think Klopp omitted Trent precisely because of Sane- who gave us significant problems down the right flank (whether we played Trent or not, in truth). Sane is out and Trent will be in.

    Not really there is very little evidence - I don't see the game like you do, I look at the players, their attitude on the pitch, and skills to performances / consistency. That Man City lot - are breakable - look at the way Wolves and Spurs have performed consistently against them. My biggest failure on this forum has been predicting the downfall of Sterling - it just has not happened !!! Little fuck keeps scoring.

    Robbo only has an On/Off switch. In Robboland there is no such thing as gears.

    I see you're branching out. We've got you on the Guardian and Woland has twitter sorted. Sneaky SCM infiltration...
