Bristol City are 11th in the championship, Shrewsbury are 14th in league one. Shrewsbury are at home next Tuesday in the replay. It would be good for the kids to play Shrewsbury and get through to the next round. I wonder at what point Klopp would think it worth while to put the senior players into the fa cup side?

Not sure how accurate these figures are as I am not sure where they could be sourced from (and I am pretty sure i saw Mane was on £150k a week somewhere not the £100k that Sporttrac have) but if even close to being accurate they demonstrate just how good a job the scouts/MIchael Edwards have done n the last few years. Obviously the likes of TAA/AR will get massive pay hikes when they sign new deals like Salah/mane et al did last season but even so.

https://www.caughtoffside.com/2020/01/07/man-utd-liverpool-wages-comparison/

Figures have emerged showing the full list of wages being paid out by Premier League clubs this season.

It’s interesting to get a look at the numbers at Manchester United and Liverpool in particular right now – two teams going about trying to achieve success in very different ways, and one doing a lot better than the other. Namely, Liverpool have done some smart recruitment on the cheap in recent times, with the club great at identifying talent that others have missed, while manager Jurgen Klopp is then the ideal coach to lift players to new levels.

United, by contrast, have splashed out huge sums on plenty of flops in the transfer market, with many of them still on their payroll.
As shown in this graphic from Spotrac, Man Utd really are paying some silly money for players who are absolutely stealing a living at the moment.

David de Gea is their top earner by some distance despite a recent dip in form, raking in as much as £375,000 a week, while the perpetually injured and generally underwhelming Paul Pogba is in second place with wages of £290,000 a week. Even crazier perhaps is Luke Shaw taking home as much as £150,000 a week, especially when you compare it with wages for Liverpool’s full-backs.

LFC numbers – also available on Spotrac – show that one of the club’s finest performers of recent times, Trent Alexander-Arnold, only earns £40,000 a week, or less than a third of what Shaw makes. Meanwhile, Andrew Robertson, surely a much better left-back than Shaw, is only earning £50,000 a week. Combined, that’s £90,000 a week being spent on two of the finest full-backs in world football at Anfield, while at Old Trafford ageing converted full-back Ashley Young, now most often seen on the bench, is on £120,000 a week.

There are numerous other shockers, almost too many to mention, but Nemanja Matic taking home £120,000 a week, more than players like Sadio Mane and Georginio Wijnaldum, is also particularly laughable.

The current black goalkeepers jersey is one of the nicest jerseys we've ever had.

Big game on Saturday, away to Spuds who will be without Kane and Sissoko. We might not get that all important early goal/penalty.

Thought Man City would get a bit of a test from their noisy neighbours that would maybe tire them out for the Premier League games.
Turned on to see what the score was and it's like a training game for City. 3 up after 40 minutes.

That yellow away jersey was lovely and of course the throw back 3rd jersey last season

The orange 3rd jersey was awful

Tough second half. They looked out on their feet in the last 20. But, they hung on!😎
