Consistency is one thing I wish Liverpool would implement this season and will use it wisely later on in every game. Untill then keep working hard guys. Move on to QPR, YNWA!

"I missed the first half, but what I saw in the second, I wouldn't like to blame the team for the result. Stoke taught us a lesson in how to be successful on a budget; big men up front, big men in the middle, and you guessed it, big men at the back. Bull baffles brains, and Mr. Webb, being a complete meat-head himself, seems to be a special fan of Stoke's type of play."

"Just some tactical awareness would have achieved a result. Playing Coates as part of a back three with Johnson and Enrique as wing backs would have nulled their arial threat and still provided the potency going forward. Shelvey gives us nothing in the role he is asked to play and suso is far more aware and sees a pass. "
