    It is merely payback for last season, when you crushed our soul.

    Hayles? Lovely, wonderful and a kick ass girl. But as I previously argued, it's more fun going out with somebody who supports a different team, you know, for reasons i previously mentioned...:eek:

    I see a better dynamic between you and Hayles. Basically reckon she's the type of girl that normally goes for bad boys, but then you came along and tamed her, you old romantic Luke.

    Wouldn't mind both but would prefer Sterling.

    We have looked much more fluid and threatening upfront with a mobile forward, it's not suprising really as that is what our system relies on, movement upfront which Sturridge and Suarez provided in abundance and what Balotelli and Lambert fail to do. Balotelli can still be effective but only if played with a mobile forward, original plan was to play him with Sturridge but that plan ended up on the operating table for half a season...

    Balotelli isn't guranteed to be fit for Sunday, if he is, he will most likely be on the bench.

    Yeah agree. Guess it could work with Lambert-Sterling up top with Rickie pulling defenders away and Sterling roaming into pockets of space? Though guess it works better with 2 pacey forwards.

    It worked for England against Switzerland, when Lambert came on, he made space and laid the ball for Welbeck who went on to score. It works even better with 2 pacey forwards but sometimes you need strength up front and a different plan if things arn't going well with two pacey forwards which was why Rodgers brought Lambert. Liverpool were fortunate to have Suarez and Sturridge who were on WC form so it worked pretty much the whole time apart from Chelsea's bus.

    Balotelli is suspended for one game so that rules him out for Arsenal.

    Pretty much he could have missed due to injury anyway.

    Hopefully Lambert will now be fresh for the game, he looked knackered in the last few games he played and was anonymous.

    Swear it was Luke on here adamant that Lambert was better than Giroud in July?

    We shall see. Oli looked pretty good and fresh as a daisy vs Newcastle last week, trust he fancies his chances vs the famous Liverpool back 4

    Will most likely be a back 3 which we played for the past couple of games. We seem to look better going forwards with it. You'll have a field day down the wings though.

    Lol at anybody saying that when Giroud offers 20 goals a season when fit. Lambert you'll be lucky to get 10 without penalties.

    Wasn't it Sev... who had the 30 goals for Giroud in his sig this season?

    I think Lambert and Balotelli as signings go to show how inept Rodgers actually is, they are entirely different strikers to Sturridge, you've pretty much got to change the way the team plays when you change the striker. Someone like Remy or even Welbeck would have been a better option.

    Completely fit all season, 30 goals all comps was achievable imo. It's only really now people are starting to see his value tbh. He's a great attacking alternative. He creates a nice Salt n Pepper combo with Alexis or Welbz
