Red Bull vs Red Men, & Lady

After forgetting our game versus Stuttgart (3-0!) was on at all and then subsequently getting confuddled about the kick off time, I thought it would be prudent to pen a reminder in advance of our next friendly, against Red Bull Energy Drink, in Australia, on Thursday the 8th of the 25th at 3AM (BST) (Bull Shark Testosterone). (GTA).

Predicted lineup: all of them.

Predicted score: 0-4.

Quick unrelated news update: Thiago, Thiago, Thiago.

No need to put too much store in these pre-season friendlies as we've regularly seen mixed results and that they have little to no bearing on the season proper. It would be nice to shellac RB Leipzig though and look splendiferous while doing so which I'm sure we will.

Perhaps we can glean some clues regards players set to feature more regularly next season: Neco Williams and Curtis Jones both started against Stuttgart, returned from loan Marko Grujic and Nathaniel Phillips also came on later in the match.

All put in decent performances and the former pair seem nailed on to feature strongly in our 2020/21 season, the latter two less likely but perhaps Klopp is yet to decide. If he uses them again against RB they must play to impress. Certainly a poor performance could seal their fate.

What's happening with Gini? (still yet to sign a new contract) nobody knows, but I assume he'd not take part too heavily in our pre-season if he's soon to depart for pastures new as has been suggested in the media. Other notable points - Keita - two starts in a row? And, with Firmino and Mane already grabbing pre-season goals, can Salah now find his summer shooting boots.

Let's hope we put in a showing worthy of our own fearless girl x

Tuesday, 25th August, 3PM GMT. Let's go Reds!
