I love pen shootouts but not when it’s our club involved, thankfully we got through, never do things the easy way do we. Have to say, i’m very disappointed that everton didn’t make it through, i was praying for an all merseyside final, would have been fantastic and a great occassion for the city but unfortunately it was’nt to be.
On to the FA Cup and a visit to anfield from westham who are doing very well in the lge and to whom we owe one too bigtime, would love us to knock them out but like all our games now it’s another tough one and only tough because of our shocking defending, we know we can score goals we just need to stop leaking so many.
On to the team. Great to see flanno back against stoke and thought he done well for a guy who’s been out for 18months but seen that he started against stoke i don’t think he’ll start this game but definitely be on the bench. I would like to see smith get a start here and drop moreno, i’ve never rated moreno tbh and i think klopp might try and off-load him this summer. Seen that lovren was on the bench against stoke i’m thinking he’ll get a start here as to will allen and benteke. Not too sure about the fitness of clyne but if he’s out then randall will more than likely step in for him, will ward get a start here i wonder, not sure why we brought him back from his loan if we don’t play him in the cups, anyway, my team for this game would be this,
randall toure lovren smith

A few changes there i know but we have a really big lge game a few days later against leicester, who, let’s face it, are going for the title now and we’re away to them so a really tough one that, like they all are for us now. We owe the hammers one and the same game and result as the final in 06 would be very nice indeed.
