Hi Ed’s,

Not sure if this is the best place for this, but given we are playing 2 games in such a short space to time and the majority of our first team heading out to Qatar. Who can I call to put my name in the hat for the villa game?

I have some old predators that I can dust off, just not sure where the applications were being processed!

{Ed002's Note - There is no need as Liverpool should have no problem playing the two games - it is not like clubs have not done this before.}

For me, I’d prefer to win the Carabao Cup, as a fan. Financially it would be better for the club to win the club World Cup? I don’t know. It’s a day out at Wembley and yet another domestic trophy.

On another spin, I’d love to dethrone City of the league cup, would be a massive physiological blow to them of we won - just my opinion

The only advantage I see in the trip to Qatar is the warm weather.

We could also go and win both I suppose, I just feel a second strong team will struggle at Villa Park. I’ve been their ground loads of times and they really do create a good atmosphere- typical old fashion ground.

Forgot to mention - We’ve never won the world club cup and this team would be the first team in Liverpool’s history to win it if successful.

So that’s the other side to the debate.

But Ed you haven’t seen me play.

{Ed002's Note - You should show up for the charity match next year.}

Ed2 the games are less the 22 hours apart. not to mention playing the game and travel time. Its a little silly not to move the league cup game.

I remember when SAF skipped the FA cup when they had to play in the World club championship. Caused a right fuse at the time. They where defending it too.

{Ed002's Note - I am not sure you understand. Nobody is expecting any of the players to play both games.}

That is a very fair point!
