How I wish for a 3 point, clean sheet, victory tonight.

How I wish for Werner to score.

How I wish for Kepa to have some brilliant long-shot saves.

How I wish Alonso manages to play intensive for 90 minutes.

I only know what I have read about TT but nothing written about him gives any indication that he would accept a "directive" from the board or anyone regarding his picking of a team.

This, again! :).

The  'the board told him to do it' excuse is as old as the hills on here. It's dragged out by people whenever a decision doesn't meet their particular position.

It’ll be fine. I heard that Kepa has managed to pass on his “Kepaitus” to Allison so is now completely cured of f**k ups and general shite goal keeping.

I am afraid Kepa may have been taking notes and singing. 

Anything you can do, I can do better...

Have Kepa's arms grown in length? 

Why is he starting an important game?

What have I missed here?

I think the Neville/Carragher discussion in the Sky coverage will have an element of truth; Tuchel will have sold himself as the coach to get the most out of the big money signings and the board will definitely have wanted a coach who can do that.

But that is still several jumps behind "the board pick the team".

Wowsers. Didn't see that coming. 

Several have made the point that if Rudiger and Alonso get 2nd chances, why not kepa.

I'd add that given the long list of experienced players who were well below par under SFL, why not credit Kepa with the same excuse.

Just watched the turgid WHam/SUtd game..had looked forward to two games this morning/early afternoon (here) one disappointment so far! 

Both games on TV so looked forward to big screen as opposed to laptop streaming..." the better to see you with!"..shudder.
