A little early with spurs beforehand.
Nice of them to rate Hendo so highly.
Woah woah woah. One prematch thread at a time on here. Cant handle all these new threads!
As if one of these wankers is going to wear black boots.
I was thinking that the same
Haha, just go with it
I don't imagine we will be playing our current 'first team'. PSG will since the French league is a doddle for them.
--- Clyne --- Gomez --- VvD ---- Robbo
I think Gomez may stay at CB for his pace and then Matip replace him for the weekend if he needs resting.
I simply can't bring myself to put in Moreno for Robbo but Klopp might.
We're going to lose.
That's the spirit!
It's not a stretch to say that resting 5 of our first team would mean losing to a full strength PSG is it. However we won't lose at Wembley and I'm even beginning to think we'll beat Spurs
Ha no point discussing this until after the Spurs game
You surely can't be serious Froggers.
We will be playing our best team Froggy.
Yup. Klopp may rotate certain players but it won't be a b-side.
I get the need for pragmatism - it's only the group stage after all - but this a glamour tie with everyone watching. We need to be at our best.
Let's learn the lessons of Rodgers + Real Madrid and pay it the respect it deserves.
Lol yeah he will defo field a weak team In the first fucking champions League match of the season against PSG at Anfield
We will be playing our best side versus Spurs, PSG is just 3 days later ... I don't see any way Klopp is not going to rotate for that with Saints 4 days after that then Chelsea (LC). Then comes a bastard of a run with 3 days later Chelsea (A) in the PL then Napoli (A) 4 days later followed by City (A) 4 days after that. 3 very tough games in 9 days.
We will need to use our squad to the maximum and ensure we are keeping players fresh. I think it will be the 'B' team vs Chelsea at Anfield in the LC but where else are we to rest players ? Napoli away is more important than PSG at home and bar Chelsea (LC) and PSG (H) we can't afford to lose if we want to win the PL (a little hyperbole permitted here) and qualify for the CL last 16.
I see the matches we can rotate in as being PSG (H), Saints (H) but only a little, and Chelsea (LC). Besides which the team I posted is hardly weak ! Some may say it strengthens in two positions (RB, DM) and Shaqiri would be a starter for most teams that don't have Salah and Mane ! Only real question marks / weakening is Lallana and Sturridge and Studge has been playing well. The defence is virtually unaltered and Fabinho has played against PSG many times and knows them far better than Hendo. It's far from being a weak team by any means.
The starting 11 will undoubtedly rotate through this period Froggy but if the side you predicted takes to the field on Tuesday night I will run to the halfway line wearing nothing more than a smile.
Definitely a joke...its got Lallana in it.
So PSG rested Neymar and Buffon in the last league game against Saint-Etienne and were also without the suspended Mbappe, but still ran out comfortable 4:0 winners. Not sure this game is very useful in telling us anything about them, but anyway here are the highlights:
From the more extended version of the highlights I watched earlier, their defense seemed to lose concentration at times, but the Saint-Etienne couldn't convert their chances. PSG's midfield 3 was Lass Diarra-Verratti-Rabiot.
I'm looking forward to finding out what kind of crazy tactic Tuchel came up with for this game. I've seen journalists describe him and Klopp as "friends," but I think I can feel some tension and rivalry between the two and their respective personalities couldn't be more different. Given how uncompetitive the French league is for PSG, I'm sure he's been planning his move for weeks.

I think Klopp should do some small changes against PSG. Kinda important to get a home win against the top ranked team in the group.
Shaqiri could start for either Salah or Mane.
Fabinho should definitely start considering his time in France.
Sturridge for Firmino, especially since he damaged his eye.
This is a tough one but I might just swap Van Dijk for Matip. He's played 90 mins twice for his national team and again against Spurs.
Both fullbacks could do with a rest as well.
