What's the point of sending 20 crosses into the box when there's noone there to convert them?

""All I can say is 19 GAMES, 6 WINS AND GOAL DIFFERENCE OF 2. Get real. Liverpool needs a REAL manager and ambitious owners. We will NEVER EVER get into the top four with BR in charge and the average players that are being brought in.""

"Decision making is the real issue - lots of shots, but not a lot of 'quality' chances created. More patience and better CM decision making."

"Totally unaccetable but what could we expect were used to being left down by now. Im just gonna drink the pain away and wait for tomorrow to just wipe it all away from my memory, I should have went to a party instead of comming home to see this pile of crap :-\ Best of luck in 2013 were gonna need it YNWA.

"Mr Rodgers should shoulder some of the blame for playing Jonjo Shelvey/Jordan Henderson ahead of Nuri Sahin and Stewart Downing/Joe Cole/Jordan Henderson ahead of Daniel Pacheco. I would have preferred to see Suso stay on the pitch instead of Downing. If anything, Pacheco should be playing ahead of Suso. He is just as good, and more mature physically. "

"usual boring, useless stats who say all and nothing at the same time! agree with you Pablo Hermes, feeding 20 cross into the box where there's noone to convert them is absolutely useless, like after all keeping the ball for the 62% of the time! Utter crap!"

"RedCyclone 26th Dec 2012 21:46 - right on. The owners that we have at the moment are no good for a club of our profile in the age of globalization. They would have been alright in the 70's and 80's. Certainly not now."

"Poor performance by the team. BR - where was our plan B? We are just one dimensional. Stoke were a much better team, and BR played straight into Pulis's hands. Shameful display by LFC. LFC are 2nd rate."

"AllofRafaGems you are right, the choice to subsute Suso with Raheem has revealed wrong, we played an awful second half after a decent first! Take note BR!"

"wow! i think stoke havent scored 3 goals on their ground this season before this match and it had to be against us... we are still poor at creating clear cut chances, poor at corners, poor at freekicks, poor at counter attacks, poor in midfield and infront of goals...and awful...happening a bit too much lately at doing simple pass. "

"We MAY beat QPR by some miracles and all we will get to see praise upon praise. Then we will go down tamely in another match all players, manager and owner will come under fire. So long we find players hesitant to crowd opponent box with winning mentality we are not going to see results we want. YNWA!!"

"what I saw today is too many interceptions by our opponents, we gave away the balls too many times, Jo0hnson, Enrique, the decision is sometimes to dribble too much, poor defending, too bad as we had an amazing start, BR give up on Suso too quickly, he didn't have a good game but Sterling didn't shine as well "
250GTO
26th Dec 2012 22:41
"Cagger..it isn't chanted because BR wasn't supported in the last window. Hence John Henry wisely staying away. If "we are were we are" after a meagre £15m spend in January,then the chants will be for "FSG OUT". And BR by association."
Lludwig

"Every rival managers seems to have the weaknesses of our players at their finger tips except our own. They know how and when to deploy their strike force against our defence line to push for maximum results. OPTA statistics suits excusess of sort for our poor performance. Sad Boxing Day! YNWA!! "

"As a team we seem to have gone backwards defensively. Steve Clarke has been a miss in this area I reckon. The players had absolutely no heart tonight and chased down nothing. "

"First up, I just duffed Stoke 7-0 on FIFA 13, just to make myself feel better after that. I was in the Boothen End watching the game. I support this manager wholeheartedly and I can only assume that he keeps putting Shelvey in the team because we are waiting on January reinforcements. Shelvey has been shocking in recent games. I want to be positive, but....."

"What are these guy doing:- Brendan Rodger (manager), Colin Poscoe (asst. Manager),Mike Marsh (1st Team Coach), Glen Driscoll (Head of Performance),Rayland Morgans (head of fitness & conditioning) Chris Davies (head of opposition analysis) They are all suck doing nothing for the best of LFC except happy with mid table position.

"BR spend 28 million for Borini, Joe Allen and Assaidi. ML spend 16 million at Swansea. Just using money from selling Joe Allen. And Get Michu goal scorer 1 goal in 1.5 game compare to Borini 1 goal in 11 games. That How suck our mid table manager BR."

"LOL all you people are unreliastic. under the conditions BR is in and thwe budget he had and time and what was available, he has done well. dont look at results, look at performance. when the money is there and we get the extra 3, 4 players then results will come. "

"Shelvey should not play upfront as a second striker just behind suarez, he is too slow, technically poor and loses too many balls in that position. Let Gerrard play behind suarez. At 32 yrs old, he will still score goals and create chances. From Mauritius"

"Watched this game live in Australia and though a six year old was at the LFC helm of FIFA13 instead. You know what I mean...kid has never played before and just randomly presses buttons...players everywhere, struggling to get near the opposition or ball for that matter."

"Not winning the le for a long time is bad enough. To end up at mid table after Christmas is just sad. Loosing to teams (with due respect) like Villa, Stoke and next QPR? The vital 9 points could have been our saving grace instead it has pushed us to the middle kingdom-I never though this would ever happen, yet it did. "

"Totally agree, Agger & Skyrtl aren't playing well because they've lost confidence in Reina, from last season count how many times he's been beaten on near post, unforgiveable. Jones did well when he covered when Reina was injured, why not continue with him, might shake Reina up a bit"
