Wow! What a performance!!! Thanks to a weak Halsey they'll win it. I saw Luis commit a two footed lunge yesterday getting away with it + Evans the cnut also had two straight legs. No pen for Agger.

Other than that we totally and utterly outplayed them in first half. Reckon the cads with get an easy pen and win it. Fukc off Halsey you weak and worthless cad.

Outstanding performance by Liverpool....especially with having to play most of the game with only ten men.

The ref made several key blunders.

We had a stonewall penalty turned down (when Suarez was clearly fouled in the area).

United had a phantom penalty awarded.

And just there now, Van Persie does a two footed lunge on Suarez and does not get a red card.

The referee needs to take a long hard look at himself.

here's another angle for the Shelvey sending off.

looks like the United man is more to blame than shelvey.

all in all, the ref had a stinker today.

the FA need to have a look at his performance.

I'm delighted with the performance. If we can play to that level week in and week out the results will come. It's easy to be deflated about the result, but we performed superbly imo and we need to take that from the game and play to that level on a consistent basis.

My sentiments exactly Ed mate. We were superior in every department. Halsey won the game for United who got their 4th non-peno if you include the Gala peno. I'm very impressed by us and today a shift was made. I can see us go unbeaten from today til mid-february. We're together with Everton by far the best TEAM in the PL this far.

I hate Mark Halsey and wish him the worst. He's soooooooooooooooo firkin overdue.

the above image, is probably the most stunning and moving image that I have ever seen at Anfield (or at any ground).

Our lack of goals means I don't share your sentiment about going unbeaten until mid february. We have Everton away end of October. We have Chelsea and Spurs and Newcastle at home in November. In December we have West Ham, Stoke and QPR away. In January we have Man U and Arsenal away. Our lack of goals means that I can't see us getting many wins or draws away from during that period.

When both players are guilty of going in studs first, it shouldn't matter who comes off worse, both are guilty of the same offence. Common sense is therefore a yellow each and warning that any further infringement of the laws of the game sees you walking.
There's no perpetrator and victim, both are equally guilty.
 
Don't make the same mistake twice, there's plenty of new ones to choose from.

On another brighter note I was pleasantly surprised to see Suso coming on in the second half. All in all I thought he did well.

It is very pleasing to see the youngster given a chance under Rodgers and the likes of Sterling and Suso are our future and to see them develop in the first team is going to be intriguing.

Agreed. In addition, our defensive setup isn't good enough to keep clean sheets. This is going to be a season long learning curve for all, and seem like a very long one.

The performance today was much better than Thursday, but we're just going to have to enjoy the victories however and against whoever.

agreed.

sadly, we have a history of coming off worse with refs in this fixture over the years.

refs often reduce us to ten men, often in the most dubious of circumstances.

from the first few games of this season, I keep thinking of Forest's relegation season - and the mantra, that with the football they were playing, they were "too good to go down"

we are highly unbalanced, and poorly set up in defence, midfield and attack.  I can envisage the poorest season unfolding in front of us, in the months ahead.  I see us as being bottom eight material.

Now, as is often the case, teams start to perform better as the season progresses (the likes of everton and arsenal are typically always slow starters).  I just hope we can develop better understandings and push on.  Fingers crossed (or else it is gonna be a long hard season).

Agree again. The youngsters are getting the best education there is - top flight football. As long as Rodgers doesn't panic in the next two windows and goes just for ready made solutions (Dalglish's major error) then we'll be looking OK for the medium to long term. He's going to have to develop anyway, as our next shirt and kit deals won't be anywhere near enough to make up for no CL football, so we're going to have to develop our own with only the odd position specific purchase of a 'specialised ready made' player.

without CL money, we will never be able to hold on to young players that develop well in the next year or two (say, for example, Sterling).

CL football is essential.  Without it, we will become a feeder club.
