I keep thinking the game is on Sunday, but no, it's in 13 hours. On FSC for us yanks.
Not really sure how this one will go. Liverpool have been looking very poor as of late, but they always seem to be up for the big games, especially when it's against us.
Liverpool will cup final us..their fans will be vitriolic and up for it!
Rafael Smalling Evans Evra
Valencia Rooney Welbeck
I really hope we win. This will be some emotional ride.
Strong team but don't think we'll risk Rooney for this one - no point. Stoke on Tuesday is more important.
I think it will be Berbatov & Welbeck up front and Chicharito to use pace coming off the bench against a team who already played a gruelling match this week.
Don't know who will play left wing is all.
less than 7 hours .. can't wait.
Same. I woke up too early, need to kill the time somehow.
Yeah, The quicker this starts the better.
I reckon we'll see
Welbeck Berbatov Valencia
Evra Evans Smalling Rafael
i would think berba-hernandez may get the nod for the front two position
How long till the game starts?(how many hours)
5 and a half I think
nah, not with Welbs' current form - handy sub though, Hernandez
One thing you can bet, the line-up won't be what we're all predicting.
If Evra plays, hope he winds the crowd like this again.
Nerves have got me up very early. What's everyone's pre match rituals?
You can not be serious, no matter the situation a game against stoke is never more important than putting the deluded rat eating skip lickers in their place.
Im feeling the nerves already, going to get some shopping this morning so that will pass some time. Other than that just arse around on the caf waiting until kick off. I reckon a scoreline of
Liverpool 0-1 United
Id take that, hopefully from a wrongly awarded penalty in the 98th minute of added time and scored by mr evra
My pa has decided to watch the match.
I'll have to explain that all the booing is for a man who reported being racially abused.
Good luck with that
For the sake of the game, and to restore a bit of faith in English football, I really hope the papers are talking about the game tomorrow and not the supporters.
Unfortunately, it's almost inevitable that Liverpool fans are going to fill Anfield with hatred for a man who's, as said, only crime is reporting racial abuse. It will be quite a damning display I fear.
But, if Kenny couldn't behave responsibly, with tact and sensitivity, how can he expect the supporters to? The only reason it's the main talking point is through the club's actions.
Links to streams via my homepage as per usual (actual streams will start to appear at about 12 gmt).
Hard to tell what will happen with the injuries we have
Please no berbatov though - useless away from home
What is your homepage? I'm relying on streaming for tonight
3 hours to go!
his recent quotes haven't been much better. Maybe I'm being too negative on the guy and I don't have his latest comments to hand but it was more or less " we've done all we can, as a club but we can't take any responsibility for how the fans react". If that's not a cop-out, esp after his previous. I mean, like they've really made an effort to defuse the situation. Utter arsehole.
No fixture is like the Liverpool one to me. I don´t care how we do it but please, please win this.
Expect the 'we're not racists, we only hate Mancs' song by the scouse.
Hope we reply with:
'It's never your fault,
It's never your fault,
You always scream justice,
but it's never your fault!'
Bring on the bastards!
'You're scouse, you only hate work'
Stolen from city yea, but it was a good retort.
c'mon you match-goers - let the lads know you're there and enjoy the trip home
Same, this is ridiculously early for me on a Saturday.
Honestly think it's the Evra issue more than anything - even the strongest character would struggle in the circumstances, especially if he gets the abuse we now expect him to for reporting racist comments. While many will boo Evra I think a number at Anfield will realise what they are doing and how awful it looks on them (if they are caught by Sky cameras) and their club... I never thought in 2012 we'd see an FA Cup match where a match full of mostly white supporters would boo and abuse a player simply because he reported racist abuse.
Watching the two managers speak in press conferences yesterday fills me with confidence though. Fergie looked healthy, happy and in good form, joking that a replay would really get the FA going. Kenny looks tense as feck as usual and reluctant to give away anything, nice to see that league cup semi cup final win didn't cheer him up for long.
I really hope this internet rumour about Utd fans bringing in Pillowcases with holes cut out for the eyes (ala KKK) are just that. Bullshit rumours. Such actions would really let the club down!
Cleverley tweeted the wrong words to the 'from the banks of the river irwell' song, which prompted the #Clevchants movement:
It was started by Andy@Allerton on RAWK, so I think we can rest assured it is.
He'll chant what he wants, he'll chant what he wants, he's Tom Cleverley, he'll chant what he wants #ClevChants
I'm not sure SAF we'll play the best team available today. Much like Arsenal last season.
Looking at Liverpool's FA Cup "runs" in the last 5 years, they've been rubbish! Please let the run continue.
