    I've torn into Lallana quite a few times on here but credit where it was due, he looked good today. How come he didn't start? and wtf is up with Brenton playing 3-5-2, surely he must have seen from United that it doesn't work.

    Brenton has quite a poor record in the transfer market tbh. Of the 21 players he's signed since joining Liverpool(excluding loanees), i'd only have Sakho & Sturridge at United.
    I'd take Markovic. He's a better prospect than Januzaj. That said the bs from Jam about him fitting in right away and rocketing off to a perfect start was never gonna happen. He's a year or two away from the first team. I'd probably take both Origi and Moreno too, especially for those prices.

    As one of the commentators said you "Limped over the line" to beat Ludogorets. On another look at these stats for Gerrard, apart from the Pass Accuracy shocking. https://twitter.com/Squawka/status/513396100770705408


    Makes me so sad to say it but the poor bloke needs a rest, a couple weeks out and then maybe every other week. He's too old to be doing so much.

    I cant imagine to think how gutted you guys would be if you finished outside top 4 this season. Feels like 09/10.

    Top 4 is still between you lot, United and Arsenal.

    I can deal with the wumming from other club's fans, but not when its coming from our own. Top four over because we've lost two games on the trot against mediocre opposition? I appreciate it's not a great situation to be in, but did you really expect us to be what we were last season so fast? We showed some of what we're capable of against Tottenham, right before we lost several players to injury. It's going to take time, but we'll get there.

    Liverpool/Utd/Arsenal will be fighting for 3rd and 4th.
    One of the 3 will miss out and United look too focused and good now that they will get atleast 3rd.
    If Liverpool go out from the CL in the group stage it will be a blessing in disguise.

    i appreciate that it will take time to improve but united showed last season that you can be out of it by christmas.
    fair enough having the odd bad game but that's three 3/10 or less performances in a row.
    if we aren't careful we'll be too far back by the time we start playing well.

    nah, you play decent football but don't create enough chances or aren't clinical enough.
    our football is too bad to get close to creating clear chances right now.

    sterling is the best teenager on the planet but one player can only do so much.



    i think to be fair on ludogorets, nobody knows the threat they'll pose - they might shock and beat basel, you never know
    but winning so marginally is very poor indeed.

    i'm scared to say we can only get better after that game, but i really don't want to risk it.
    if we don't beat middlesborough i will actually lose it.
    Arsenal play good football against bad teams. They play bad football against good teams. Not ideal.

    Not sure if Sterling is the *best* on the planet, but he is certainly top 3.

    No argument, Ludogoretz is not as good a team as Dortmund. I am sure if we played and beat Ludogoretz narrowly, needing a penalty to score the winner, you would be suggesting that we almost bottled an easy game.

    unfortunately that's true
    at least you play well at times - there's almost nothing more frustrating as a fan than seeing your team just not go for it.
    when you know you have the quality to tear apart west ham but the opposite happens, that's a bad thing to experience.

    best on the planet hands down.
    name a better teenager than sterling then; can you think of one?

    urgh, just too mad to say much right now
    being outclassed by city is one thing but it's depressing when west ham own you.

    But we aren't exactly void of promise, are we? When at full strength we dominated another top 4 contender. Sturridge will hopefully be back for the Derby, whether he starts is another matter, but he can have an impact.

    Don't forget that before our run last year, we dropped points all over the place. We're a victim of our own success, I'm full of belief that success will return. I just don't understand all the negativity!

    **** that I want us to destroy Leicester (but obviously would take a scrappy 1-0 win ) and go 2 points above them :sexface:. If Sturridge aint fit for next week, I cant see them beating Everton.

    Yeah, 'not go for it', just like last week, like 5-1 Liverpool, 6-3 City, 3-0 Everton, 6-0 Chelsea etc

    When they are on form, perhaps Deulofeu, Piazon, Januzaj, Munir (so far), Marquinhos, Ocampos etc
