Wow https://www.thisisanfield.com/2019/12/liverpool-announce-squad-for-qatar-revealing-who-wont-play-vs-aston-villa/

Quote
Possible XI vs. Villa: Kelleher; Hoever, Koumetio, Van den Berg, Larouci; Dixon-Bonner, Chirivella, Kane, Lewis; Longstaff, Stewart.

Edit: Further plans were revealed afterwards suggesting Liverpool hope to play four players against Villa before flying them out to Qatar Ė see here for more details.

Play the side that won at Crewe or anything resembling it and we will win. Zero fucking around and complacency please. Weíve been handed a very lucky draw. Be professional and get to the semi final.

Was talking to a Liverpool fan the other day and he said if they beat us in the quarters it will be one of the best results in their history. Not sure what to make of that other than it will be very embarrassing to lose.

It will be like the Wolves cup game so as long as we are professional and Dean plays a fairly strong side we will win. The league game against Southampton is more important whether we like it or not.

I'm sure the club have looked at the numbers and concluded 'crikey, we've cocked up here'.

Disappointed that they've not addressed it with the fans. A couple of weeks ago they could have amended the prices and refunded those who had bought tickets via their season cards.

They're now stuck with a sub 30k crowd. Pity.

Circa 11,800 tickets on general sale. Canít believe the club has got this so wrong for a day of a quarter final cup tie when the boys will need a great support against an athletic 11 who have nothing to lose .
Real real shame , a Unusual marketing  in the current climate

Following the sad news on Saturday, for me, the League Cup takes on even greater significance. I wish the club would sort out their pricing gaff and pull something out the bag so that there's a full house cheering us on to victory.

I think the atmosphere will be like a library.  Small crowd watching Liverpool's youth team.  Might not bother with this one.

It won't happen, but I'd love it (love it!) if we just played our strongest side and put as many past them as we could.

Particularly in the week before Christmas when crowds will often dip anyway.

I know of 8 ST holders (from different friendship groups) who arenít going to a quarter final game at home. Tells you everything.

5-1 would be nice, seeing as the date of the game is close to the anniversary of another one against them.  (or better still 7-1 or 8-1, as I remember we should have added at least a couple to our first half total after the break).

29k sold. Southampton and Norwich games both sold out. Just shows how wrong the club have got this game.

I'm sure the two other games being so close has affected the attendance for the LC game, but the pricing is just wrong.

I'm not going.

Mixture of price, having lots of other nights out this time of year, uninspiring opposition of the Liverpool Paper Boys XI, general apathy around it.
