Not saying nought until I know the Justin situation... was he in NSYNC (yes boc, I had to google too) or not.

The thought of having to decide between Thomas (relative inexperience) and Fuchs (too slow and tendency to the rash) is not something I want at this point. And fortunately don't have to do. I don't know in short but fear a complete rejig that will indeed see Justin in goal.

If Justin is out, his replacement has to be the person least likely to give away a penalty to Salah.

Fuchs to me is more likely to brain fart than Thomas.

A rested Fuchs can do a job. We had a run there in which every time he started, we won.

The problem is when he has to play more than once a week. He can’t manage that anymore.

It's the kind of job he might do that concerns me! He can be, um, 'robust' shall we say.

I'm inclined to agree with BN, Sala's going to torment either Fuchs or Thomas but Thomas is less likely to give away the penalty. But I'm hoping (against hope?) that Justin will be fit and able.

Castagne is meant to be back for this isn't he, our (pre season) first choice back 4 might actually play together for the first time

I'm not so sure. They're not firing on all 4 (or 6, or 8, or whatever) If there ever was a time to play them...

We're definitely in with a shout imo but it'll be a real test of our self-belief etc.

It’ll be a typical performance against Liverpool.

We’ll set us as scaredy cats, shit the bed, bend over and get royally bummed.
