"After result on Monday Rodgers has no choice but to play a strong team. Not the managers fault we lost against West Brom obviously, but if those players are as wasteful again then we'll already just be waiting for next season."

"Liverpool will have 253 shots on target with no goals. And 56454 corners wasted. Zenit will have one shot on target and score. And will probably score from their one and only set piece too."

"It's the same story after every game we lost.We answer one game and then the other is again rubbish and this year after year.People are working hard every day in factories to pay for LFC and what do they get to see? NOTHING!You all ran around the field as a bunch of spoiled kids.Come with me working everyday in a metallfoundry from 7.00 till 16.00 hrs.That 's working with the right mentality !"

"This has got to be our main focus for the rest of the season as 4th now seems well beyond our reach. If that's the case, then we must field our strongest team. No time for sentiments or trying out younger players. Look how far that got us against Oldham."

"hope BR gives an opportunity to the lads who less have played recently, Borini, Assaidi, Allen, Wisdom, Shelevy, Sterling, Skrtel... just an exception for the defence who I'd prefer was lined-up with the in-form lads, Wisdom and Johnson at full back, Skrtel and Carra at centre back! We have absolutely to bring home a decent result in sight of the return leg."

"If we are going to win this perhaps we could come to arrangement with Zenit before the game? I believe "wheels can be oiled" in Putin's Russia these days. I know its desperate, but these are desperate times. At this rate of "progress" and "rebuilding", we will lose every sponsor we have. "

"Lots of negativity on here these days! Its sad to see. Yeh we lost against West Brom and it was a real sucker punch, but really can you blame Brendan for that? Its down to the players to take responsability. Its also down to the fans to get behind the team and manager ALL of the time. Anfield was like a library on Monday. Lets starts SUPPORTING our team.

Its about time these prima donnas realised how priveledged they are & instead of whinging about tiredness from 1 or 2 compeive games a week, start 2 put the effort into their work that us minions have 2 put into ours in order to fund their lifestyle! Play with passion! Every game!"

"Kez55 - Really? so all our bad results are down to the players. So BR is exempt from style and tactics that are implemented in a game and lets not forget a manager who can motivate his players. So what are you trying to say, the players need to implement there own tactics and motivate themselves. Sounds as if Liverpool will save even more money next season by making the managers position obsolete."

"If we`re in need of a Plan B, maybe Rodgers might consider sticking Coates up front with Suarez and get the players to put some high balls into their box. I don`t think they`ll have planned for that and he can definitely volley the ball."
