    That's the answer! Quality Street in the buildup, Heroes during the match, followed by Celebrations. The only concern is hiding the wrappers and pretending that it wasn't me who ate them all

    0-4 Saints.

    Ralph the new messiah, until "Ralph out" next time we concede a goal in January.

    BTW I haven't been drinking either - went sober for October and still haven't had a tipple...can I last until Xmas?

    I actually think that Ralph might throw a curveball in there, but more like Tella starting up top.

    Which will then allow Twitter-Saints, when he underperforms, to complain that you can't just throw him into a game like this (because Ralph can never, ever win when it comes to that lot).

    Easy. Just use my ‘no-drinking’ rules: 1) Beer and wine don’t count as alcohol. 2) Weekends are okay. 3) Wednesdays are cool too, because it’s a mid-week bonus day.

    If we can’t beat Liverpool with that team I think Ralph should go.

    Never fails to surprise Ralph….5-2-3
    Différent, Romeu and JWP going to be a bit knackered after this one as our full back will probably be pinned back

    Looks like Ralph has finally given up on his "10s"....should be a very interesting match with lots of long balls from us i'd suggest.

    Are midfielders really that important anyway? You win games by not conceeding many and by scoring lots of goals. Makes sense to play all your defenders and all your strikers. Ralph is a mastermind of the sport.

    As long as we pretty much keep our three strikers up front and not drop into midfield, it will force Pool to keep at least three defenders/midfielders back. Then when we knick the ball in our area they need to hit it Long to our strikers and not play through midfield
