I'm gonna watch this simply to see how the women officials get on.

One of the assistants is Michelle O'Neill - she did the same gig for the Women's World Cup final, she lives about a dozen miles up the road from here in Wexford, Ireland.

Injuries.....lots of injuries please.

Seems a bit daft having this game 1st week after our season begins, for two teams to have to travel all the way to Istanbul sandwiched between the first two games of the season. I know we play European games midweek but not at the start of the season when players are trying to get their fitness and conditioning back to where it needs to be.

They normally have this game on a Friday if I recall and the corresponding PL fixtures are postponed until a later date, it's probably better for fixture congestion for both teams in the long run.

Much as I detest the bin dippers nothing can be worse than them beating us in the final, so I'd like to see them absolutely demolish chelsea tonight just to start the fans doubting Lampard. And a load of injuries to both sides please.

So anything but a neutral then? I went to Dublin last year and had to double check at one point that the flight had landed in Dublin and not Liverpool.
