    I will still go to VP out of respect for Stephen Darby, make do with the morning session and hopefully they will still be playing at Lords when we get home from VP

    I’ll attend but be leaving early, probably about 60/70 minutes to beat the traffic and see the end. Shame our game wasn’t on Saturday instead but never mind.

    Loved how you tried to stretch out your argument with Gomez (called up for England), big money signing and Brazilian international Fabinho, Milner and Matip COULD be first reamers!! :joy::joy:

    And then you entirely omitted Clyne, Chamberlain and Lallana! :joy:

    Origi, signed a new contract yesterday, oh yer, he doesn't fit into your argument so we'll just forget his name is there. :joy:

    Watching the final, although tinged with a little sadness. Not only do I miss the chance to honour/respect Darbs, but I don’t even get to see the final I was hoping for. And more importantly, the people I’ll be watching it with, are gutted it isn’t the final they wanted.

    yeh - those four mentioned are not 100% guaranteed starters hence why i mentioned that on their day they could be part of the first choice XI, read it again; i did not say they weren't first teamers as they are in the first team squad but on the other hand they could also lose their position easily. not like van dijk, mane, firminho or salah who would tend to be first names on the team sheet if fit no matter what.

    clyne and lallana have been speculated to be leaving liverpool this summer and chamberlain is also a squad player, albeit due to injury recently. which of those players involved in the liverpool squad tonight is 100% a guaranteed name on the teamsheet come the first game of the PL season? that is someone who you could class as a member of the first choice XI.. when everyone is fit it's 1 of milner, keita or fabinho to play alongside henderson and wijnaldum. then you could argue it's matip or gomez to play alongside van dijk - but that's it, nobody else.

    you can put as much gloss on it but you asked where all the u23 players were, i pointed them out to you - 61% of those players currently involved in liverpool's pre-season fixtures are from the u23s. the rest barring 1 or 2 aren't getting on the teamsheet for the starting XI on the opening day of the season.

    You do realise that in the same way we play trialists and youth players they are also "allowed" to, right?

    Thank you for pointing out the ages of some of the players. It's a shame the joke was lost on you.

    I wont be there anyway.

    Fully respect the cause.

    But the idea of getting pumped by liverpool with every goal celebrated by thousands of 'bantams' isnt something that would thrill me.....

    Everybody is entitled to their opinion but I am looking forward to watching my team take on one of the best teams in the world for a brilliant cause. I will watch the cricket on catch up later,

    God almighty. Why can’t people just go to the match and watch it, support Stephen Darby and go home.

    Oh he won’t be playing. He won’t play. 67.7% are under 23’s. He might not play as he’s leaving.

    So what? Go enjoy the game, give Darby the match he deserves. Stop worrying about everyone and everything else.

    Sounds like unity to me. What a wonderful sight that would be.

    Anyone who feels the need to sour the occasion is completely out of touch with reality.

    Not sure I get this FB? Not sure what there is to be put off by in what is really a fund raising game. What's the gripe?

    I have a commitment elsewhere, which is why I can’t go.

    It’s a great cause and I hope it goes well. I can just see it though, Liverpool banging the goals away and our own Bradpool fans cheering as each one goes in. Wouldn’t feel right to me.
