Liverpool kick off the first game of the new season on Saturday lunchtime against the cloggers live on BT sport one.

Last season Stoke were the total anti-football team and have rightly earned the moniker "the cloggers" for their, shall we say "robust" style of play and after watching some of the dross that they served up in the premiership last season I swore off ever watching them play again.

Liverpool kick off the first game of the new season on Saturday lunchtime against the cloggers live on BT sport one.

Last season Stoke were the total anti-football team and have rightly earned the moniker "the cloggers" for their, shall we say "robust" style of play and after watching some of the dross that they served up in the premiership last season I swore off ever watching them play again.

What will this season hold for Stoke under new manager Mark Hughes? If they are to be a team built in his image then things are only going to get worse and style will remain a dirty word.

That is clearly not what the bet 365 founder and owner Peter Coates has on his mind though after replacing Tony Pulis with Hughes and it will be interesting to see what rabbits the former Manchester city manager can pull out of the hat.

This game then is going to be beauty against the beast and if we are going to be true to our footballing cliches then Liverpool will need to earn the right to play football against Stoke and that is usually where the problems start.

Playing against Stoke is just a horrible business and Liverpool players will be well aware that they are going to be clattered from the first whistle.

So what will this season bring for Liverpool fans? Is this yet another brave new dawn?
The Suarez issue has of course dominated the storyline throughout the summer but as he is yet to complete his biting ban he will be ineligible for this game.

Liverpool have Sturridge to return although it is doubtful whether he is anywhere near 100% full fitness and with new signing Aspas still settling in, and Borini yet to find his shooting boots, Liverpool could well end up exactly where we were last season with 30 shots on goal and nothing to show for it.

The one true bright spot for Liverpool is the form of Coutinho who is really starting to show flashes of brilliance. His vision to see a pass and be able to weight it correctly is something of real beauty.
In fact the number 10 shirt's have been outselling those with the name Gerrard on the back and that tells you how good this player is.

Outside of playing one of the top four teams kicking off against Stoke is every Liverpool fan's worst nightmare. But at least they are at home and will have the backing of an enthusiastic Kop.

Liverpool will be hoping to kick off their campaign with an emphatic win, however more than likely this game will end in a draw and the torture for Liverpool fans will begin all over again.
