    1. Glad that game is out the way- Dead right mate. Yesterday and Anfield were my real fears of total annihilation. We have our own mini-league going on this season.
    2. Rest a few against Wolves- Agree.
    3.Give liverpool a run for their money- I desperately want us to win this one. Living over here, every other person is a plastic scouser. Very few have actually been to Anfield on a match day. I’ve been to Anfield more times than most ‘pool’ fans that I’ve met over here.
    4. Give Davis a shot- I wish he would get ‘a shot’ on target, but at home, we need 2 upfront, are they too similar?
    5. Get Conner back in the Team- Last 30 mins for me, could of been a cricket score yesterday with him starting. IMHO of course.

    Went to the game yesterday in the home end with my lad (14yrs old) who likes City, my folks live about 10 miles from the ground and due to horrendous traffic we & a number of City fans missed most of the first half. I asked a fella next to me who seemed a bit worked up it was still 0-0 which told me we'd played ok - shame Trez didn't connect with that cross at the end of the half.

    Mings seemed uncharacteristically casual at times yesterday, allowing himself to be out-jumped by a diminutive striker for the header to Sterling who himself tried to cheat with a handball claim later in the game for the fantastic goal-line clearance by that man Mings. A second error led to another goal-line clearance - it could easily have been 5 or 6 and much as I love DS's philosophy of playing out from the back, it's bl00dy risky against the high press tactics from the current champions.

    Not sure about 2 defensive midfielders having now seen us play that way, didn't see much of SJM or Douglas on the ball and agree that Davis needs the start, he looked lively when he came on, Wes looks low on confidence & needs to play with swagger.

    All credit to City, they gave us no time on the ball and I feel we look quite predictable in our play? I also thought that kit doesn't stand out enough against the background of the pitch meaning some easier passes were missed?

    Wolves - sell out crowd, good test, give Jack, John and Marvellous a rest, start with Davis, Lansbury, Connor and El Ghazi.

    I'd swap Hause to LB and bring in Chessie for an hour, he'll probably move on in January & we owe it to him to get match fit after he compromised his career playing with an injury.
