Today, apart from poor finishing, Liverpool were unlucky. Looking at that match, on another day they would've won comfortably.

Crouch and Kuyt should have been fighting over the match ball at the end of the game, to be frank. Both try really hard, but they are symptomatic of an average squad imo. It'll take a new manager to overhaul the current squad, as I don't see Rafa undoing the last few years of squad building. I like him as a manager, I've said it before, but he has far too much weight on his shoulders now.

I'm not all that fussed, really. As long as Benitez has a job, I'll be happy.
I don't really care about that and has absolutely no relevance to my post. I'm just putting straight your clueless comments before someone else picks up on it and takes it as fact.

Peter Crouch really can **** off out of Liverpool for all i care now. His attitude this season has by and large been ****ing appaling and on the three big chances he's been given to score goals and help cement his place in the side (Chelsea carling cup, Havant and Barnsley) he has turned in 3 truly ****house performances. For someone who was being booed and mocked by almost every other football fan in the country when his current manager stuck by and put his neck on the line for him, Peter's performances recently have been nothing short of absolutely disgraceful.

Time to stop being such a ****house **** and give something back Peter.

kpg, have you noticed that in recent matches, we take most of our set pieces short? And also hardly put a decent cross in. It's frustrating.

Most of our set pieces are embarassingly bad.

Which is partly why Crouch isn't doing so well.

The Sunderland game was a good example. No crosses/crap crosses for the most part of the game, then Carragher out of all people steps up, excellent delivery, and goal.

I don't understand why we can't just swing it into the box like a normal team instead of taking it short and trying to walk our way into the goal.

Some of the reaction to the news that Barnsley defeated Liverpool at Anfield from around the World.

Carra's cross was from open play, not a set piece

I agree. But this happens too many times under Rafa. It's the whole team's fault, quite frankly, it all comes down to the Manager, he's the one that's supposed to train/buy/motivate the players.

We need our old Assistant Manager back, or someone along side Rafa. The rumour when he left was that he had all the 'ideas'.

I'm not sure that the Barnsley match was representative (or even indicative) of Liverpool's season. The void in creativity and ideas on the pitch seen in the West Ham game (for instance) were not present yesterday. I saw a team battering the Barnsley goal to come up against a better-than-average goalkeeping display and some extraordinary last-ditch defending that those Barnsley players will never replicate in another game. On the other hand, it's an exit in the Cup to a team to whom Liverpool should not be losing. On that basis it's hard not to judge players and manager harshly.

I suppose it's no coincidence that the departure of Pako Ayesteran has coincided with Liverpool's misfortunes. This is a man who has been with Rafa Benitez to share every triumph that Benitez has enjoyed as a manager, throughout the Valencia spell that made Benitez' name, and including his European success with Liverpool. I don't know exactly what counsel Ayesteran offered Benitez but he seems to miss it.

Sir Alex Ferguson's United career is proof enough of the value of a talented assistant. I don't know exactly just what Ferguson achieved in the brief spells after the departures of Brian Kidd, Steve McClaren and Carlos Queiroz, but I bet it wasn't nearly as much as with them. With Kidd, Ferguson dominated English football in the '90s; with McClaren he conquered Europe.

Those would be the Mercurial Vapor IV. I saw a pair of the predecessor, the Mercurial Vapor III, and wasn't a fan. They're stupidly thin, it's basically like your own feet with a light plastic sock with blades on the bottom. Reckon it would hurt my poor feet to shoot with them.

I wore the Mercurial Vapor III at the meet, they're ace for dribbling, but shooting is a nightmare and they give you horrible blisters!
