"You have to recite the "mea culpa" if we won't qualify for the next stage BR! It's unacceptable end a game with a squad so uncovered at the back when we were 2-1 up in the last minutes of the game! It's an amateur mistake! hope we will have learned the lesson BR!"

"well well deja vu how long are we going to suffer. Don't blame the players, manager is tactically naive, lacks direction and amateur really. Would alex ferguson, rafa the best benitez or morinho make such a mistake. I don't think so. But then, when you employ a relegation manager what do you expect? I've been a liverpool fan for years, I'm sad.Where does the future lies?"

"We have to improve many things, not only game management. Set pieces - both ends. We waste too many ours, and concede too many from the opposition. Shots on goal - do additional training or something. Can't be so wasteful. Otherwise, we looked not bad. But looking pretty is not enough."

"Overall good performance! However, BR is right (players walking back)Sahun jogged back, Shelvey was walking, Stevie was never getting back. We lose the ball, Suarez trying to beat everyone as usual instead of playing in either of his supporting players (3 attacking players isn't over committing) but our midfield don't know how to defend, which has been a problem all season. "

"Leason 1: When opposition have the ball get between them & our goal, not level, not almost level. Leason 2: close to within a yard of that player, don't dive in just pressure the ball. Leason 3: Once the guy has passed back because 1 & 2 are a success, track his run if he runs behind you. Job done!"

"Liverpool need only match Young Boys' result to progress? If Liverpool and Young Boys will win or both will draw, Liverpool will qualify. But if both teams will lose, Young Boys will finish second in the group and Liverpool will finish fourth. Udinese can't qualify even if they will win, so Liverpool will play against an uninterested team and have a good chance to win."

"For the odd flick and little bit if quality when we have the ball, Sahin is dreadful when we don't have it. It's like playing with ten men with him on the pitch at times. No room for passengers at LFC. Easy jet flight back to Madrid quick."
buckie
22nd Nov 2012 23:32

"BR is a rookie and very naive with his post match comment. If we played brilliantly how come we didn't win. We are the biggest losers this week. Seen Rafa going to Chelsea and may be he will tempt Reina and a number of other players to join him. BR is brought back to earth after Saturday win over Wigan."

Oh hang he's getting some game time & appears to be improving like most of the squad. The whole point of this season is to develop a decent TEAM for next season! So we challenge for 1st or 2nd in le!"

"I really dont care about this trophy and judging by team selection neither does BR. He may say he does but a first eleven for an hour tonight would have seen the job done and dusted. Yes we drew the game through being lazy and we have caused ourselves unneccessary grief but LFC of ten years ago would have walked this group thats why LFC are so embarrassing at times."

"Look, we had the qualification in the bag. But again, we totally look lost after about 80 minutes. I can't believe these guys are not match fit by now. Always after about 70 minutes we just die. No gas in the engine or what? BR is right, even the crappiest team can defend. it is called closing your man down. The players let the fans down once again. "

"Arhat I respect your views but we cannot compare with manure at present and it es me off, how long with this rebuilding process. Rafa rebuild liverpool for all the youngsters are from his recruits. The best football came from Rafa yes thats the past but how long are we going to wait another 20 years, clearly BR is naive, no experience I'll give him 25 years he won't achieve anything."
Arhat
22nd Nov 2012 23:57
"what is naive with BR?? he needs to learn Gerard stay back 2 minutes before end?? I rate Rafa Benitez, but he came in into completely different situation, than BR. Gerard was young and this time best CM in the world etc. People forget we end last season 8th..18pts in last 19 games and three years out of CL."

"This game changes nothing for me. Most of our players couldn't score in a brothel. 79% rubbish. 100% of games you draw, you'd win with 1 more goal. LB, RB, mids and wingers must be scoring if you play the push up pressing style. You will always get caught on the counter."

Stupid, naiive, pathetic, decision making. Their 2 goals they were given too much time and not closed down quick enough. Good goals but shouldnt have let them get in those positions."

"To all who supporting BR. If we are building for the future why we are sacking RAFA and Dalglish. Them bring us 5 trophies. KK only manage LFC for 1.5 season with one trophy. Are we happy if this season we did not won any trophies and the 4th place. "

"Why FSG did not give BR the Target for this season. BR already make us lost the League cup lost to Swansea in QF, UEFA look like we are not qualified for the 2nd round. FA cup trust me, we are not even in SF. Why ????? BR is only an average manager and Michael Laudrup much better manage Swansea this season compare to BR at Swansea last season. "

""Two things I like to say here, one that I think BR prefers to use the Europa League to give exposure to the young boys, while the aim remain CL by getting to the top 4. Two, i am gutted to hear Rafa has taken the Chelsea position, and they plan to move him up as Sporting Director after. He built Valencia and LFC with great young talents. FSG, we have lost out on a very good man.""

"Once again we dropped points thanks to Reina.For me he is our weakest link.With Brad Jones under the sticks last night would have been a victory for us.I think LFC needs urgently a world class GK because to win games its not only by scorring goals, most of all its by not conceiding,and with Reina a clean sheet it's a rare occasion."

"well what cost us the game is a defensive midfielder where sahin,suso,henderson,and even allen cannot cover the defence.lucas was the solution.the second goal would not have gone in if lucas was around.even the first goal,henderson was watching.did not understand y coates was not introduced.also i thought assaidi should have been subbed not suso.suso was outstandind"

"Too many back passes to Reina often under pressure, who was just clearing the ball instead of finding target men. Hendo right back? you're having a laugh. But get a mid table manager and you get mid table tactics & results, no wonder he thinks we are nearly where he wants us to be."

Compare them to Suso, Assaidi, Sahin, Sterling - these guys give it all, they're agressive and fighting, though not too experienced. At last a godd game by Cole at least - so why take him off?

"I was there last night and made a point of watching Sahin- and came to this conclusion:- He does have some nice touches 'when' we have the ball, but he is absolutely invisible when we dont.

"Disgraceful. No-one to blame but the boss. Should've had the big guns on from the start. There is no way Liverpool ever should be resting players at home in order to face a team like Swansea. Must win the next game and although we shouldnt need to rest players for West Ham either the difference is that they all have to travel now. Should've got the job done at home."

"Shelvey great game new no 9 ?? Sahin is not a defensive player to light weight in the tackle . S.G should play in Sahin position and cover defensively no more box to box leave that to the kids . this way he will survive another 3-4 seasons . Hendo will get better ..in midfield only . BR is on the right track just needs bottle to drop Carra now and play Coates !"

"It wasn't Rodgers' fault anyway. All Suarez had to do was hold the ball up."

"LFC are not quite good enough for the Europa League (let alone Champions League). We should just try and avoid relegation and try and bring in some real quality (as we LFC fans are starving for). Sound defeatist...how do you think we LFC fans feel watching the performances (without a good result) each week??? Tipping 3-2 in Swansea's favour! ps. Forget about Europa...we can't win it!"
