FFS....with Sturridge out then we'll have to play allen in midfield with henderson and test out gerrard behind ballotelli so we can perform something like a unit for the Real Madrid game...we're going to be hammered if we don't try something new...

I would play Gerrard off Balotelli and use Lucas (highly divisible , I know) as the defensive shield. Can and or Allen and Hendo, Sterling as the remaining pieces of the diamond. I know it means a lack of 'hard pressing' from the front (Balotelli and Gerrard), but our Summer transfer jigsaw has left us missing too many pieces for anything else.

How much have we spent over the last two Summers, no actually three? Our buying and selling is a joke, seemingly whoever does it.
We've spent more than enough since our last title win to win the title, but squad numbers and quantity always gets put before quality and continuity, whoever has been making the decisions. 
Don't make the same mistake twice, there's plenty of new ones to choose from.

Ahem.

But Guardiola told Perarnau:

"I loathe all that passing for the sake of it,
all that tiki-taka. It's so much rubbish and has no purpose.
You have to pass the ball with a clear intention, with the
aim of making it into the opposition's goal.

It's not about passing for the sake of it."


Our manager is such an utter numpty by comparison.

The great Liverpool managers (and Cloughie) went to
Europe to take on the Guardiola equivalents.

We seem to do pastiche these days of second-hand ideas
that are outdated or misunderstood.

We haven't played a lot of anything this season, other than poorly.

Last season was all about Suarez.

That fool you see as a worthy manager of LFC
has never won a trophy in his life & used
spout on and on about something called
"Death by Football", whatever that means?

Strikes me that he said a lot of things when he first
arrived but doesn't really have any convictions with
maybe the exception of one day managing England,
which is obviously completely unacceptable for a
manager of LFC.

Perhaps, you should brush up on the style of management
that made us a great club to be feared throughout Europe.

Shocking first half at Loftus Rd for LFC.  This team if that's what you can call them are soooooo poor that QPR should have won and tied this game up already!

So so poor today. Skrtel and Lovren are both awful.

We are getting out battled. Balotelli's decision making as been very poor.

woeful first half.

the premiership's bottom-placed side have played us off the park.

QPR should be two up - they missed a couple of sitters.....indeed, they should have a penalty with that second chance, and we might well have had the lad who handed the ball sent off (Johnson).

They are beating us to most first balls, and every second ball.

Balotelli is not a Liverpool player.  He plays for himself.  He is dead lazy.  And he won't fukin pass the ball to others who are better placed (that is the hallmark of the way Liverpool have always played). 

There is no midfield. 

There is no balance at all.

I want to see Rodgers gone by Christmas.


In the midst of winter, I finally learned that there was, in me, an invincible summer.

There’s no next time. It’s now or never.

same here.

I walked down to the pool, fed the cats, and came back there now.

To find, that cometh the hour, cometh the man....step forward Richard Dunne. 

Rangers complain, turn off their attention, and we score.

Rogers leaps around like he a demented steroid loving nutter, who has won gold at the Olympics.

bring on the fecking clowns, the circus is in town.

a drunk man in an earthquake, has more bloddy balance than a rodgers team.

against the most dire team in the division, we looked atrocious.

Why so many needless touches - pass the ball at speed.  When you play technically inferior teams, you first of all COMPETE for the right to the ball, when you win it, you move the ball at speed.   But we just did not compete, farless move the ball at speed. 

Sell Balotelli in January, if some mug will take him.

Bring in Kop, Ancellotti, Benitez, whoever - but someone with a fecken brain, that knows how football is played at the top level.

Jerseys for goal-posts, and primary school tactics, are nowhere near enough at this level.

And I apologise to Kevin Keegan, for endlessly labelling Rodgers as Keeganesque in his tactics.  Keegan at least could organise an offence.    Rodgers, without Suarez, is like Samson without hair.......utterly naked, and shown for the bogus guru that he is.

Lol...i walked out of the pub at 2-2...unbelievable that we actually won it...
defensively we were as pathetic as usual...quality decision to get rid of agger...
Our midfield was all over the place as well, and Balotelli while being greedy also was stranded like robinson crusoe....
If we defend like that against real we'll be crucified...
Bloody awful...
how the f*** are we fifth?

i was wondering the same thing, Bart.  Imagine, there are 15 teams in the premiership WORSE than we are.

Yes, i can only imagine your thoughts prior to walking out of the pub......endless goals at either end for the last 5 minutes.

I left the tv after 45 minutes.  I had seen enough.

Yes, I have said the same too, two weeks ago, re Real Madrid.  Madrid will utterly crucify us, if we play like this.

The way I see it, these two games (home and away) against real, will mean the end of our CL campaign for this season.  At this moment, I imagine Rodgers is terrified of getting hammered by them.

if we had lost today, and been hammered home and away by Real, I fail to see how Rodgers would have kept his job.
