    I expect us to be on the backfoot for large parts of the game because our current midfield isn't one that can dominate a game against Chelsea's. But I think that suits us; we seem to play better when adopting a hit & run style.

    Worried about Ramires, to be honest, which is why I hope Enrique starts at left back, rather than Agger, who should partner Skrtel at CB. We seem to struggle against pacy players/wingers, so he will have to be at the top of his game. Does anyone think there's a chance of Bellamy, Suarez and Carroll playing up top, Bellars from the left and Suarez from the right?

    This. I think we'll both be disappointed
    Yes I saw Kenny praising Carroll as if he was Messi, after his effort against fulham. I just hope the same Carroll turns up on the day, because he could give us a performance like against Newcastle again.

    Expected more Gerrard action + Less Carroll tbh. Only a trailer, but it will influence how many people are influenced to watch it

    Am I the only one who is hoping for Suarez and Carroll both to start? Their partnership has been improving but still hasn't fully blossomed. They need more game time together.

    Also - just a thought - when Bellars and Downing are both on the pitch, why do they swap wings so they both cut in... especially when Carroll's on the pitch. Not enough crosses are put into Carroll.

    It's Kenny's idea of tactical innovation.

    Happens with most teams nowadays, the idea is that the wingers play more as inside forwards, adding to the attacking options in the middle of the pitch and creating space for the full backs to run into and deliver crosses. Arjen Robben is brilliant at it, and Downing and Ashley Young were very effective doing it last season for Villa too. Downing played most of his games on the right hand side last season anyway so it's not like Kenny's doing something no one else has ever done!

    Serious question where do you realistically expect yourselves to be next season? I mean in terms of signings and also league position.

    Pretty boring interview but sounds like we're making a bid for Dempsey in the summer. Would make sense for the owners with the American connection but a bit of a strange one considering we're meant to be looking at young players and Dempsey is 29 :confused:

    Would be an interesting signing nonetheless. I fear he could be a squad player and he blows a bit hot and cold for me at times. But he knows where the net is and can create chances. Could only cost 6/7 million too.

    Thoughts?

    Better than this year.

    I really don't know what our scouting department is doing with Comolli gone and I really don't trust them to do a good job but we'll just have to wait and see.

    I played my friend who normally dominates me at Fifa yesterday, with me playing as Liverpool with our expected line-up for today and him the same with Chelsea. I went 1-0 up with Carroll in the first half, second half he scored two with Torres and then in the last few minutes I equalised with Carroll. 120th minute I ran past 3 players with Suarez and stroked it into the net! Nothing to worry about lads
