So thought id make this as im wondering how you guys would set up now Coleman is out...

I would have thought we would be a 3 at the back if he was ok, but would you play Holgate further forward and still keep the 3 at the back??

And will Morgan be back? If not - well its not the right game for Barry but bloody McCarthy is injured now as well....

If we had a full strength team id be much more confident, seems i say that every time the derby comes round though.

Also with it being april fools day, we will probably win, but the FA will chime in and say it doesnt count 'April fools Everton' :(

I have to return some videotapes.

Doesn't count after 12pm.

I think it all depends on Schneiderlin being fit tbh. If he is i'd go with a three at the back with holgate in the three and Lennon taking Colemans place. If not, flat back four with Holgate going rightback.

I know people want us to go toe-to-toe with them, and not be meek and passive, but the teams that get results at Anfield tend to sit back, and hit them on the break. Pretty much everybody that's gone there to play them has come off second best. Holgate will have to play right back, and I wouldn't feel massively comfortable going with Jags-Williams-Mori as a back three, so I'd go for a back 4.
Jeff: That's not the way to win.
Kathie: Is there a way to win?
Jeff: There's a way to lose more slowly.

May as well just give them the three points, saves a lot of pain for our fans.

Id like to see us play the way we did against Wolfsburg away. I know different manager and all that, but i think that would be perfect against these. We have the players to kill them on a counter.

Despite the absentees, that's not a bad starting eleven. Shows the squad is improving. :)

If Schneiderlin is still out, then this has to be the team.

I could see is going 3 at the back and calling up Kenny or Pennington.

Their entire gameplay is based on getting runners in behind, I hope we keep a deep backline as we don't have the pace to track their runners otherwise

I'm not sure Big Dunc is allowed to coach and ref.

It might be seen as a conflict of interest.

I'd put in Calvert-Lewin for Mirallas.  Like Super Kev better as a sub, and also worry about him getting carded early if he starts.

One could also conceivably start Lennon up front, since he tracks back so well.

No way we can play a back three with both Jags and Williams, even if we move Lennon to RB.  You'd need to also bench Williams for Mori, which would be ballsy as fuck.  And probably stupid.
