    For the CFC match, yep. Remember thinking the same thing.

    Not so much in this match. He just hasn't been able to do much (excl. the free-kick) to impact the game. Don't think he even took that many shots. But the prob is that he does it when they absolutely need a calm head to force something positive.
    Exactly. Always tries the Hollywood pass or the sexy goal. All the time.

    Joe Allen is the worst footballer in the history of LFC, he does not attack, he does not defend, he does not press, he does not do anything.

    Could very well be the last time you see the majority of these players in the CL. They aren't good enough aside from Sterling, Coutinho, Moreno and Henderson - and we certainly won't be in it next year.
    It's tough - how many of these players will still be here in the medium term?

    The whole of last season was absolutely pointless.
    That is rich coming from an Arsenal fan. You finish 4th each year and then get knocked out in the first knock-out round. What is the point of that?

    Robbie's right - we were better with 10 men.

    This, we don't seem to realise that the game is played for 90 minutes and not for 20 minutes....

    srs question: is Skrtel currently our best fit striker? At least he knows how to get on the end of a cross.

    Oh, also, Gerrard is on the money post-match. We didn't deserve to go through. No complaints.

    So at what point do we start point at Rodgers for his transfers?

    I think only Coutinho and Sturridge have been a success? And even then Rodgers doesn't seem to trust Coutinho a lot of the time.

    Rodgers biggest **** up was not replacing Suarez and not signing a backup for Sturridge. He instead signs two immobile strikers and exiles our only mobile one.

    Them two are the only genuine successes - you could probably make a case for Allen, but I won't be fighting his corner.

    Massively agree. We saw last season that Sturridge was at risk of injuries so more than anything we just needed a top striker. There weren't many players available but still seems like we went hunting in the bargain bucket.

    We should hire Rafa and get him to bring Higuian with him

    This bloody team I swear, did the same against Sunderland, only show urgency in the last 10 minutes, ridiculous really. Didn't look like scoring before the Gerrard goal. Just a poor showing tbh, I don;t see why didn't have any striker on the bench, even if it's a youth player of some sort, we do the same thing every game. The definition of insanity is what I think of when watching Liverpool over these last few months, doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different outcome. Not going to happen. The incessant passing out the back, sticking players in that don't deserve it, taking players out who deserve to be in. Absolute cluster****.


    On another note there is so much crap posted in this thread from opposition fans, I can;t even tell if it's an attempt at being a WUM, maybe sarcasm/who knows. The quality of posting on this forum has gone to ****, summed up by the fact that a mod of the section chats more crap than anyone else. You can only handle this place in small doses nowadays.

    I can't decide about Allen. He looks tidy on the ball and I do wonder if Gerrard being around makes it tough for him (he isn't the right player for Allen) but he hasn't really imposed himself on the squad.

    It baffles me why we always seem to start actually playing in the last 15-20 minutes of the game, we would actually be winning games if we played like that for the full 90. We played better with 10 men, like wtf?

    I can't work out why that is or do the opposition just start to sit back?

    Rodgers is starting to become very stubborn with his decisions.

    Did anyone see Rodgers talking to the press? He's going to get fined for that!

    Well done Basel, deserved to go through more than Liverpool or Ludogorets. Annoying that Gerrard's goal cost me £30 but just happy for the boys to be honest. 5 wins in a row against English opposition. 2nd time they've knocked Liverpool out of the Champions League, can't fault them.

    So all the WUMs/opposition fans who may have watched the match - was it a red card for Markovic? Or was it a poor decision?
