    Can we suspend Lovren for the game?

    He's suspended for Croatia's next game, right?

    EDIT: Yup. He called out Ramos and his Spanish teammates. I wish he would have expressed the same sentiment without using that word. Well, for Ramos anyway.

    Isn’t Van Dijk suspended for the first leg?

    Yes. Yellow card accumulation.

    After playing 90' with an injury concern at Brighton, TAA is out 4 weeks with a knee injury.

    Sure wouldn't have sucked to have Clyne around, but if Lovren's back for Palace they could roll either of Milner / Fabinho at right back

    I'm thinking Fabinho is looking at a semi-permanent position change.

    At least for the time being.

    I'd run Fabinho out there for more attacking teams, but Milner is fine against teams that drop 10 back and play for 0-0.

    Most of the reports are that Matip will get the start against Palace .. Lovren supposed to be out for a week or two.

    On a happier note Joe Gomez is expected back by the 30th. Hallelujah!

    Milner should be a perfectly fine RB against the teams on the schedule for the next four weeks. The Reds will be bossing possession against the likes of Palace, Leicester, West Ham and Bournemouth. Milner is actually an asset in this case because of his playmaking abilities.

    Wijnaldum has picked up a knock so expect to see this team against Palace .. Allison, Milner, Matip, VVD, Robertson, Fabhino, Henderson, Shakiri, Mane, Firmino and Salah.

    Fantastic news. What a pleasure to watch him develop into a great wing.

    This is a surprise. From the Echo:

    So at the very least, probably not as bad as previously reported.

    Well that's good because I was totally nonplussed about why TTA played the last match. After Trent went down, Milner was doing the express warm up...I don't quite get why Klopp didn't put Milner in just as a precaution.

    I can't believe he's only 24. Seems like close to a decade ago when he signed.

    This is less than ideal. Maybe VVD can work his magic on Matip?

    Ugh, but it's much better to be cautious with Gomez. He's a cornerstone.

    The new deals for TAA & Robertson got me to look at the other expiring contracts: Markovic is gone; Moreno & Sturridge will not be brought back (shedding a combined £160k/week); and Milner. I'd be glad to see him back on a 2 year contract, taking him to age 35, given how many roles he can play for this squad. If Liverpool can keep it in the range of £12m total between wages and signing on fee for the two years, I'd think it worthwhile.

    Believe me, I’ve seen it, and yes I agree it’s very well done. It needs to be updated with the cat.

    Given how much of it is Pickford bloopers it reminds me of Bravos season as City keeper. After a while the whole backline becomes unsettled just not trusting the keeper and all sorts of crazy mistakes creep in

    Speaking of, with Everton playing City tomorrow, there's lots of talk on Everton social media re: a City victory hurting Liverpool. So you're seeing a lot of jokes like this:

    Schneiderlin... that's a name I haven't heard in a long, long time.

    Yeah if I had a sports betting account anywhere, I'd put everything I own on City today.

    So .. the past few weeks have seen some pretty anemic offensive efforts out of The Reds. The common denominator is , of course the midfield. Klopp has been extraordinarily stubborn in playing Milner, Wijnaldum, Henderson and Fabhino in various combinations whenever he can. They are a solid hardworking setup - but sadly lacking in offensive creativity. In many ways the rise of Fabinho has made things worse in that he’s yet another defensively solid MF who is keeping more offensive gifted players on the bench.

    Shaqiri - he has been nailed to the bench for what seems like 6 weeks. He provided an excellent spark in the first half - indeed, even forcing a switch to 4-2-3-1 to accommodate his skill set. That seemed to get Salah going as well. Now however it seems Klopp has decided Salah has to be on the right in a 4-3-3 and there’s no room for Shaq.

    Naby Keita - it took half a year for him to break into the lineup - and it finally seemed like he was there to stay .. but no - when the big games came around it was back to the donkeys.

    What is it about Henderson or Milner that Klopp sees ? And I have absolutely no idea how the Ox is going to get into the lineup given this slavish devotion to defensive solidity.

    The failed Fekir transfer would seem to prove that Klopp realized the midfield needed an offensive injection .. what has changed?

    Shaq had a couple of poor showings, but hasn't deserved the lack of run he's been given (especially relative to Sturridge / Lallana).

    One of Keïta + Shaqiri need to play at this point - there's no use in throwing Milner and Henderson out there for 120-150 minutes weekly when Wijnaldum + Fabinho would serve as a perfectly capable dual pivot. Oxlade-Chamberlain should be returning to the U23s this week so hopefully he can provide a spark off the bench down the stretch, but I'm not holding my breath.

    I was in The Hague yesterday, very briefly. I saw one of these which I thought was kinda weird.

    And now he's suing Beşiktaş, as they apparently haven't paid his wages for 4 months

    There’s no way they’re making this a permanent transfer, are they? Shit.
