That's the most scornful, condescending and arrogant post I ever read on a Liverpool forum.

You've lead a very sheltered 'forum life' if that's accurate, Martin.  ;D  Try the Liverpool Way. We're all pussy cats in comparison.

Fulham are low on confidence at the moment, but we can only beat what's in front of us and that was done reasonably comfortably.

The Arsenal game showed the gulf that still exists between us and seasoned Top Four teams, and demonstrated yet again that the whole defensive side of our game is still a long way from where it needs to be.

I wonder who we have coaching the defensive side of the game - maybe a defensive coach is the order of the day.

Good to see Edward224 back in addition to Martin. We may all see things from different perspectives but we all want the same thing at the end of the day match.
Don't make the same mistake twice, there's plenty of new ones to choose from.

Those who choose to preach would do well to take note of their own sermons.

I don't doubt Cabayé's qualities, but I do wish were looking for midfielders of a different built. I'm much more into the Diamé, Wanyama, Dembele kind. Players who can dominate the center of the field by their sheer physical presence.

Wanyama's error was horrid on Saturday, but it's definitely something we lack. A destroyer isn't always needed but there are certain matches and opponents where it would be a huge advantage (over our current situation) to have the option.

I'm still not convinced that Gerrard is at all convinced by having to play deeper and does he have the discipline in his personality to play as a playmaker, allbeit from a deep position?
It's one of the the things that Pirlo and Alonso have in abundance - discipline with their passing.

If we're to essentially play with a three man midfield, we really need each of the three to have two attributes apiece, rather than a single one.

Talking of Gerrard, he's having painkilling injections, apparently, to be fit to play for England against Germany. It's hardly going to help him last the season for us. He's got nothing to prove with the national side and it's about time he sees how other players in their 30s have extended their careers by knocking playing for the national team on the head.

Interesting international games...i note Sakho scored twice for France to save their ass.es and am hoping that gerrard will be fit for everton (i have my doubts though cos of the pain killing injections)...
am assuming sturridge's complete disconnection with the round thing at his feet was due to him thinking about everton as well...
John henry is laying on his own private jet to bring suarez back from uruguay a day early..and i'd imagine after a days rest and sleep that he'll be ok....
thought hendo did pretty well for england...we might moan sometimes about him but he was pretty decent and did some nice interplay..as every other english midfielder kept giving the ball away, hendo did ok
englands complete inability to defend against headers was our undoing and Roy will be having nightmares about that particular weakness let alone the other failings...not our problem though...roll on saturday...

Liverpool:

                     Mignolet,

Flanagan    Agger, Skrtel     Johnson
                       
                       Lucas,
                 Gerrard, Allen,
Henderson,                     Coutinho,
                      Suarez.

Subs: Jones, Toure, Alberto, Moses, Sturridge, Sakho, Sterling.

I presume it's something like that. Can see plenty of subs
and changes in formation happening. Not the most balanced
line-up I've seen. Expect us to score a couple, but we look a
bit soft 2-2 draw!

if any more proof were needed, Joe Allen is nowhere near good enough for this level.


absolutely shocking miss......a howler.

 
our keeper is superb tho.

he's being subbed - which is exactly what I would have done after that howler.

mind you, Moses is the last person I'd be bringing on for the final 25 minutes of a hard fought local derby.


he is IMHO a bit of a lazy basterward.

3-2


that corner all came from the ridiculous give-away that gerrard did in the middle of the park


trying a fecking spiral shot or pass,, who the feck knows what it was (from 60 yards and the ball about 8 feet in the air)....gifts everton the break-away.


and of course the commentators never even mention it

Being torn apart in midfield and so what does Rodgers do? Weaken it by taking Lucas off and putting an unfit sturridge on...idiot stuff...

lol! and as soon as i say that...sturridge scores!!
