Do Hodgson’s job for him – pick YOUR Liverpool XI
Daring? Yes. Bonkers? Perhaps.
They say that fortune favours the brave – which is basically a more womanly way of declaring “he who dares wins” – so The Spoiler is taking a big throw of the dice with a new look Liverpool.
Three at the back, Glen Johnson given the Gareth Bale treatment with a chance to play in the midfield, and Cole and Gerrard taking it in turns to float around like modern day McManamans. Mascherano is very much missed as the defensive terrier in the middle, leaving Meireles and Lucas to hoover things up in front Carragher and his mates.
Hodgson, feel free to use.
Now do yours in the comments section. Or just rip into this one.
