    Don't think Rodgers is going to risk Sturridge yet, he'll probably be on the bench for the West Ham game which is arguably more important than the FA and League cup games.
    Agreed. Can't afford another setback for him - then he'll almost certainly require some sort of operation.

    Rodgers said he should be back towards the end of the month so we should see him on the bench for the 2nd leg against Chelsea or against West Ham I think.

    We should be able to beat West Ham without him.

    Should....

    West Ham's strengths are our weaknesses though which could be an issue. I don't think we'll see a fit and firing Sturridge for another month after his return.

    Because we buy the refs / Mourinho intimidates the officials / Liverpool truly are victimised (delete as appropriate)

    The one thing that Markovic needs to improve on his lay-offs. He's so casual about it and gives the ball away too cheaply too regularly for me.

    Think the ref was just a bit incompetent tbh.

    This is why we need video refeering with referrals - Sterling could have referred that and got a free-kick in a promising area and JT would have gotten a yellow card.

    And Skrtel could have got a yellow and Costa a free-kick for that elbow.

    Ref was terrible in that game, giving yellows for little incidents and not giving anything for obvious ones...

    Such a reckless thing to do. Could've been sent off since it looked pretty intentional.

    Costa hit someone in the face too. Looked intentional on slow-mo but always hard to say what the player meant to do in real time.

    I agree with you in general, think the standard of officiating is almost as bad as it ever has been in the PL, the fact the FA almost always refuse to act on things afterwards doesn't help either.

    Like when Costa was booked for this
    ,

    I know he has aggresive tendancies but to give a yellow card for that is shocking as it's obviously not intentional.

    Thing is though if you were to introduce video refs where do you draw the line? The goal-line system has worked very well, but do you to that kind of thing only for red cards, yellow cards would slow the play down and even then it's all open to interpretation and opinion.

    Wouldn't be long before Sky/tv companies introduced some bullshine 'fan decision' kind of thing either.

    The on-field referee carries on his job like normal. Both clubs have 2 referrals. If they have a ref decision overturned in their favour then they keep that referral. So if no one asks the ref to have a look, nothing changes. If the ref is correct, you lose that referral.

    If the video-ref cannot make a decision within a set period (60-120 secs?) then the onfield decision stands.

    It would just stop the obviously bad decisions but keep the power with the refs without slowing the game down too much.

    Yeah, would need work, could see teams using it to waste time though. And how it be determined where it's used. Would be pretty unfair if for example an attacking player was fouled, play carried on and the other team counter and score, manager decides to appeal, wins it and the team that's conceded get's a freekick and score while the other team's goal is disallowed.

    I agree with your principle though, the FA and FIFA are far too concerned with sticking up for the refs even if they make abysmal decisions. Even when PL refs are demoted to a Championship/League one match it's to get them out of the public eye as opposed to punishing them for making crap decisions.

    Something needs to be done about the officiating. This season seems to have seen an even sharper decline in already decreasing standards.

    I guess you make it appeal-able only if done within 10-30 secs? Don't see why anyone should be allowed to wait.

    Not sure how you could time waste on purpose since any review should be quite quick? Think how quickly we get replays on our TVs.
