Who Would You Start With?

Who Would You Start With?

I`m running a bit late folks!

Having spent the last two days up in in a far from warm and sunny Norfolk, in fact is was damn cold and windy, I`ve not yet done the Liverpool preview.

However, to get the ball rolling and with a huge Champions League Final on the horizon, I`m going to ask you a question.

When we`ve finished parading the FA Cup around Anfield, showing it to all those Liverpool supporters who left before the final whistle, what starting eleven would you send out if you were RDM?

Very interesting to hear you were in Norfolk, Merlin. I spend the past week in Norfolk as well, but in a different country.

dont know whether you guys have noticed but providing neither of Arsenal , Spuds and Newcastle win their last match and we win both of ours , we could grab 3rd!

Well ill love to see a lot of our first team players get a rest for this one...just to clear their minds spend a few days extra with family. So ill go with Turnbul-Bosingwa-Hutchinson-Iva-betrand-Romeu-Meireles-Malouda-Meireles-Sturridge-Torres. 4-2-3-1. The idea of the line up is to give a fair amount of players a Good rest.

Nelyvanile... I thought I was winging it by playing Turnbull in the front three, but you're suggesting cloning Meireles???? Also, Ithink it's only fair JT can get a game or two.

dont see spurs winning against fulham and newcastle will lose against everton. the main issue whether we would be able to win against liverpool. if we win we have a chance to finish 4th albeit spurs draw or lose and we better our GD.

Maloney is like a faster version of Mata. He has been unlucky in his career.

Hilario - Iva - JT - Hutchinson - Bertrand - Romeu - Essien - Malouda - Meireles - Ramires - Torres/Lukaku. I want Lukaku to get a go.

it's a tough question, because of recent slip ups of all three teams above us, 3rd/4th place is still not out the question. if it was i would most certainly play a weakened team tomorrow, but Fulham are doing well and could easily draw with or even beat spurs. Arse and Newcastle have two tough away days at Everton and West Brom respectively, so it's not impossible for us to give up 4th just yet, and because of that, i would throw the reserves out, but i'd still rotate the squad and weaken the team.

Guys we've been blowing chance after chance after chance. Now we have a last one, we should take it. I seriously can't see Tottenham winning against Fulham. Newcastle will lose at Goodison Park as well. Smash Liverpool and get the job done against Blackburn. We could grab third if everything goes well for us! My starting XI : Cech - Bertrand - JT - Brana - Ferreira ; Romeu - Essien - Lampard ; Malouda - Sturridge - Torres.

salzburry...I would rather we focus our energy and mind on one game,a game we have in our own hands the UCL final,than focusing on games in which we need opposition to do us favors.

FECK. Mikel is injured according to the official website. Damn we've got too many suspensions already we can't afford to lose players because of injuries as well. Everybody should be fit for Munich.

Here's what i'd go for: Cech, hutch/ferreira, Ivan, Jt, Bert; Romeu(for sure) Essien; Ramires, Mata, Sturridge; Torres

FrLamp - Mikel looked fine at the weekend, im sure RDM has simply ruled him out because he knows he's not going to risk him, he will be back for the final.

nelyvanile..... CL takes the utmost priority but all i am saying given an opportunity we should at least try to win the liverpool fixture. if we win we at least have a chance of finishing 4th. dont think daglish would play full strength pool team. so we might be able to sneak in a win. we already have messed up so many chances of going 4th season
