Just another one of them matches where we should've won, but failed to capitalise where it mattered and got punished for it. Defensively frail still, and couldn't stop YBs counters early enough. Encouraging play from Cole, but thought he was indifferent tonight.

"Well Frustrating As per usual, Fed up of average players! Bad Subs for a change no need to take Wisdom off. And i am fed up of watching an under par Gerrard he needs to pull his socks up! Just because he is a Liverpool Legend that doesnt garentee a starting place."

"Downing was awful at going forward, Assaidi had his worst match in LFC shirt, Henderson is Henderson! Now RB seems the most problematic area for Liverpool. I think it was a wrong decision to play Sterling. BR should've replaced Shelvey with Allen when we went 2-1 up"

"I'm a proud fan tonight that was an impressive performance. YBs have a knack for doing that to decent teams. Don't let your heads go down we fight to the end in every competition and we're not out yet! Joe Cole needs that position he's so sharp and needs to be fit."

"Naive in europe. The palyers must take responsibility. When you are in the 88th minute you keep possesion and close the game out. There player were much tougher in the end as they shrugged our players off. They do have a lot of skilful players and they did beat Udinese home and away."

"once again, played well but didnt get the result... should have consolidated the lead silly to give the goal away, great strike mind. cole had a good game as we could all see. walcott would be a great addition alongside suarez hes clearly unhappy at arsenal and could play centrally as he desires at liverpool. positives to take from tonight no doubt"

"Suso should've remained on I feel, he was a threat and his tight play works wonders. Assaidi was lively and has quick feet, he should be told to have the guts to shoot, he's a smart buy indeed. Downing fighting for his life bless him, I hope we keep him."
Arhat
22nd Nov 2012 22:14

"Henderson is not a right back. At fault for their first goal. Not quick enough to spot man coming in from behind. His first remit is to defend and not attack. on a positive note Joe Cole played well but it is too late. Assaidi was very good and will get better with games under belt."

"Yogi102: Dont know which match have you watched! Gerrard was the best player in the pitch. Rodgers subs were spot on. Havent you noticed that Gerrard took the control of midfield when he came in? And it was him and Suarez combined for the 2nd goal. It was bad luck today. But fair play Young Boys. They played well! YNWA"

Scousemorals
22nd Nov 2012 22:19
"Henderson shouldn't be a right-back. He's good enough but clearly doesn't know where he should be. Remember folks, work in progress and Jordan needs to be closer to goal too, he has incredible accuracy when composed you've seen the vids, on and off the pitch. He's not a DM or RB."
KennyLane

"should nvr hav played hendo at right back, his play was poor after the shift, should hav brought on coates instead of gerrard, shifting carra 2 the right 4 a stronger defense. dun understand why he kept assaidi on. if rodgers really wanted 2 win the game,he should hav kept suso or cole on, both whom played well 2day instead of assaidi who played poorly throughout"

"I love the way some ppl here make themselves feel superior by belittling others here with silly names. fact is all of us want the team to win and do well. Another fact is that every player Rogers brought in has been a disappointment so far: Borini shocking before injured, Sahin & Assiadi useless and Allen avg at best. only stars are players he inherited. so no sympathy for him on that front!

"Scousemorals I agree but a lot of these half-wits dont. He played great today. One unlucky bit of defending and they get a goal. Iv seen a lot worse from real full backs. He needs to get forward more and the confidence will come."
dwemb
22nd Nov 2012 22:26
"This was first game when I thought maybe BR is trying to be a bit too clever. But Shelvey scored and played well in that role. Suso had a big chance, but he's young, can't be too hard on him. Sahin was better, except for going to ground too many times and taking himself out of play. "

"Really sad night! We will be aware of what has happen just after the next game vs Udinese. It's true we played some great stuff, but it's unacceptable take so many mistakes at the back after we dominated in this way the game and conceded so little! Unacceptable! Anyway, Joe Cole stood out for me, followed by Shelvey, Suso and Skrtel. Well done Joe! Let's hope we learn from the mistakes...YNWA"

"Very undisciplined, naive and immature performance, the attack isn't gelling together, the shooting accuracy, even at set pieces is woeful. We need to judge the team on each current performance, a long term plan can progress in the background as it should and youngsters introduced very gradually. We are much too 'hit & hope'. Accuracy awful, awful, awful, amateur to say the least."

22nd Nov 2012 22:32
"Don't get me wrong because I have high hopes for Henderson as a midfield, but a right back he is not. Sahin needs to step it up too. We should've put this game to bed in the first half. Why take Suso off? I think BR got it wrong big time tonight. Shame. Got to go to Italy and win? Big ask."

But if Liverpool, Young Boys and Udinese will finish with 7 points, Udinese will end third, so they can't qualify in any case. It means Liverpool will play against a team that has no interest in the group last games and have a good chance to win and qualify."

23rd Nov 2012 13:54
"The reality is that his selection came very close to getting the job done. My only criticism is that the final subsution (Sterling for Cole) was a bit naive. Sterling would have been a great option had we been chasing the game, but at 2-1 up we really needed Coates or Allen to help us close out the result. But this is easy to see with hindsight and I'm sure BR will learn from it. "
