FIFA World Club Cup 2019

Host gets announced later on today apparently.

Wiki link: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2019_F...ualified_teams

I think there's been lots of misinformation that there isn't one this year, but there is and it's in December.

Can't wait, don't see this one as a distraction at all and hopefully with a few more additions it'll be easy to handle anyway.

Hopefully it's somewhere decent, saw someone earlier say Japan again which would be class, well up for a birra that. Please not Saudi Arabia or UAE though.

That game was fucking insane, absolutely battered them for 90 and had about 10 dodgy offside calls against us.

Would love to win this. But at the same time would love our fringe players making the cut, such as Brewster, Shaq, etc.

Need to win this to consolidate power in a few Whatsapp Groups. This is crucial for me driving narrative going forward.

So 2 more games to fit in, in late December of all times. In fucking Qatar.

Either for a tinpot trophy or for a 3rd place play off match against the likes of Pohang Steelers.

I think Kloppster might use it as a kind of mid-season break. If we are maintaining a title challenge by the time the World Club Cup comes around, then he might play the ressies and tie in the trip with a mid season break. I think this will shape the sides we put out in the FA Cup and Carabao Cups as well. Klopp got slated for going out of both early again this season but nobody gave a shiny shite about that on Saturday night did they!?!?!? Exactly the same as 2005 when LFC went out of the FA Cup early too.

In reality 2 extra games should be okay. It would be great to win our first 4 CL group games though - so that Klopp can rest players in the 5th and 6th games.

It wouldn't surprise me to see the premier leagues impartial super computer fuck us over with the fixtures though. So we end up with midweek trips to the likes of Southampton and Newcastle followed by other away games the following weekend.

We should boycott this. Going just endorses Quatar and their appalling workers conditions. It's a massive disruption at a busy time of the season.

I could see Klopp wanting the club to bin this to be honest, although the club may see it as a potential money spinner.

Something will have to give IMO.

I kind of want us to win this because we never have before and I felt we should have won it last time.

However after the win in 2005 we weren't really in a title race, where as this time hopefull we will be and December is a difficult time, I seem to recall for this after 2005 we had to reschedule about 3 or 4 games to accomodate this.

Remember Man Utd binned the FA Cup in 2000 to participate in this.

I wouldn't expect us to do similar, but with us having an extra cup competition (Carabao Cup), FA Cup in January, no winter break etc, it'll be interesting to see what we decide to do.

The mid season break is in February. Which just means any postponed December PL fixtures will be crowbarred in at the run in end of the season. Add CL games and possibly FA Cup too and March - May fixture list could be obscene.

Imagine if we make hard work of the FA Cup 3rd and 4th Rounds, as replays are still involved there too.

On the other hand, delay the final games and let us stay sharp on the way to number seven.

I think it more likely leads to injuries and burn out because of the rate of matches and lack of recovery time between them.

Edit - oh, I didnít see the smiley

Its a nothing competition and just for the glory for the sponsors, whose profile we have just raised to interstellar levels, so just bin it.

It's harder to win the Commmunity Shield than the world club cup.

Yet we dismiss the former.

Euro champs versus South American champs in a 2 legged affair. Job done. The rest of the world doesn't have any teams worthy of inclusion. Fuck them.

It's 2 single leg games. We'll go in at the Semi Final stage vs the winners of the Copa Libertadores. Then we'll play a team from another region in the Final or the 3rd place playoff.

Not worth disrupting our league season for imo.

Whatever anyone here thinks, the fixture schedule is going to be interrupted by this and we are going to be sending a squad of senior players, it looks like it is going to be 2 games regardless, so we might as well take it seriously and go for the trophy, whether it is viewed as prestigious or a micky mouse trophy by us, the players likely won't get many chances to play in this so I imagine they will want to win it too.
