So, with Markovic suspended and Raheem injured; I guess it's a toss-up between Lallana (3421) & Balotelli (3412). I think Lallana will start and Balotelli will replace Coutinho in the second-half.

No, it is simple, Coutinho on bench and Balotelli starts ahead with Sturridge :coffee: and Lallana behind both of them !

Apparently Besiktas are stuck in Turkey due to snowy conditions at the airport. The match should still go on as normal, though.

I'd play this team

---------------------Mig----------------------
-------Can----------Skrtel--------Sakho------
-Ibe---------------------------------Moreno--
-------------Allen--------Hendo--------------
-----------------Lallana----------------------
---------Studge----------Balo----------------

Bench: Ward, Lovren, Johnson, Coutinho, Lambert, Borini, Manquillo.

Play the first team now....get a good lead, and then send a second rate team to Turkey next week to make it cagey and park the bus as we play City less than 60 hours after the game in Turkey.

34% of Besiktas' goals this season has come from set pieces, so big test in that regard.

Though I like that team, I doubt Rodgers will bench Coutinho. If he does Molenation

Yeah, I'm with you guys on this. Coutinho needs a rest for Soton at the weekend.

All you people talking about taking a big lead. Let me remind you of Bolton replay :coffee: not saying that I dont want but I think we have to be extremely efficient in terms of finishing our chances. I just mean it is going to be difficult.

They have Ba, Gokhan Tore, former Napoli player Sosa, and Sahan as the front 4. Former PSV player Hutchinson and Veli Kavlak as the midfield duo and some scrubs as their defenders.

A week or two ago Rodgers was talking about managing the squad during a schedule like this, but it seems that our players need to get injured to get a rest Neutral

Anyway, let's win this one.

An OK first-half, but didn't test their keeper much. Need to create more. Sturridge isn't getting much involvement. Ibe is pure sex, beating their left-back for fun.

The commentators said this is the 18th straight game that Coutinho's started...

Mignolet with a hugely important save from Ba, btw.

Hendo should have hit the target with the fk. Would have been a goal. The goalkeeper didn't even move.

Right at the beginning Sturridge as too selfish. Should have just passed it to Lallana for an open tap in instead of shooting from literally the byline.

Sturridge making too many wrong decisions. 1-0 lead is not much but still a lead and clean sheet is the most important thing there.

GTFI cheers

A win is a win. Good result to take to the second leg.

Idiot commentators thought Sturridge and Mario were having an argument over the pen, it was clearly Hendo.

But I really didn't like that. It's embarrassing where you have players getting their feelings hurt because they can't decide who should take the pen. It's very disappointing from Hendo, especially being the captain.

Ibe and Balotelli winning us the game Proud

Gotta say we got a bit lucky with the penalty, it was a total brainfart from the Besiktas player, just barged into the back of Ibe without any chance of getting the ball.

Henderson clearly wasn't happy about Mario insisting on taking the penalty hmm
Hendo is the captain hmm
But I gotta say I wanted Balotelli to take the penalty, he's got loads more experience of them than anyone else on the pitch today. Henderson should see it that way, too. Btw, Mario did very well otherwise, too.

Ibe :bow:

Sturridge had a poor game.

1 - 0 is not the job done, but one away goal should be enough to progress Thumbs up

Agree, Henderson is not ready for the captain's armband. Give it to Skrtel.

Good win, Beat a thug team without any injuries and they have a defensive crisis in the next leg. They were horrible, Couldnt string 3 passes straight.

Skrtel and Sakho were great, Ibe was MoTm.

Lallana's miss was horrid, Nearly killed myself after that.

I think Henderson is trying a bit too hard to be the captain, it's come a bit too soon and a bit too big for him. I think he's just trying to a powerful leader, feeling the need to fill Gerrard's boots of authority, but what happened with the penalty was a sign that he's trying a little too hard to be that authority. Good leaders know that they don't have to be micro-managing all the time.

Wtf was Lallana thinking with that miss.

The Disagreement between Heno and Balotelli was down right embarrassing. Granted i would of always given the peno to Balo, but you don't, i repeat you *bleep* don't take the ball from the CAPTAINS hands. That is undermining him like a mother *bleep*. God if he missed that, *bleep* me the world would of flipped.

Anyways 1-0 isn't enough, were going to have to field a strong team again for the replay.


Anyways, *bleep* IBE, looking real good. He'll be better than or as good as sterling. Ganna be a deadly duo them too on the pitch.

If my life was on the line with the penalty and Balo, Gerrard and Henderson the options to take it, I would choose Henderson last.

Glad that Henderson got his captain lesson so early. I am sure Gerrard and people will have chat with him. Not Hendos mistake that Balo asked him too but he should have made a form decision and not argue about it. Anyways, Balotelli, as I had mentioned in the other thread, Balotelli should take penalties and free kicks from the next season.
