Sunderland – Liverpool (Sunday)

Posted by

Following our elimination from the Europa League we travel to the Sunderland to face big-headed Bruce and his Black Cats. It is very important for us to get all three points from this game as we need to finish in 5th place or higher for any chance at European football next season.

Last time we played at the Stadium of Light the Black Cats won thanks to a beach ball and Darren Bent, none of them will be present tomorrow.

Jamie Carragher will captain the Reds again as Stevie is still recovering from his surgery however I think that Daniel Agger will start. Fabio Aurelio and Martin Kelly are still injured which will most likely give Danny Wilson another chance. Kenny also has both Luis Suarez and Andy Carroll for the first time. Lucas Leiva’s wife had a baby today so most likely he will not feature.

Predicted Lineup :
Pepe Reina, Danny Wilson, Jamie Carragher, Daniel Agger, Glen Johnson, Jay Spearing, Raul Meireles, Maxi Rodriguez, Luis Suarez, Dirk Kuyt, Andy Carroll

  1. This will not be a stroll. If Sunderland beat us they will come close to within one point, but we will still remain sixth! We need to win to make ground on 5th and keep hoping. I hope Lucas is playing, he can change his newborn’s nappy after the match! :-) Hopefully we will see Suarez and Carroll playing together…..!

  2. We need to win, all out attack. It makes no difference whether we finish sixth or sixteenth.
    We must simply win every single remaining match.
    Come on you REDS

  3. my predicted line-up



    i wish carroll starts but king kenny said that he wasn’t supposed to play a full match on thursday!

    i’m worried about today’s reina’s rumours

  4. Could this be the day when Pacheco gets a chance?? It’s odd that we are onto the 3rd manager that wont play him. Our season is pretty much over so what is there to lose? It’s shit or bust today, one feels.

  5. We have gone through d most turbulent times we survived it,in my humble opinion we should all be preparing after Reina in d summer I have a feeling Arsenal would come knocking on our door for him nd in my contrast opinion the likes of Reina’s,judas Torress’s see’s silvaware as a way of moving on to bigger clubs than sticking wiv us where they would become Legends nd possibly win silvawares especially now the club is undergoing transitionary period..we should have gotten Charlie Adams in January I know for sure his value would go up come the end of d season he’s a proven midfielder.

  6. Dats their wrong perception of Liverpool Fc nd if they go down memory lane or look into our trophy cabinet nd compare wiv others they would know for sure We are the biggest amongst the rest even Manure can’t stand us.if Reina wants to go let him go nd we should start shopping for his replacement now,once beaten twice shy we shouldn’t allow what happened in the case of Alonso’s nd Mascherano’s happened again sellin them and replacing them respectively wiv mediocre quality

  7. Rumour has it that reina is gonna go and the saying goes that there aint no smoke without fire. We want these 2 years ‘put to bed’ now and a europa league slot would not be hugely damaging. The emphasis is on some quality transfer dealings and a squad rebuild because no matter what a lot of people have thought about the current squad, Woy and Kenny took on a mixed bunch of ability. We’ll get there.
