"I'm not a fan of it, and I don't see it working. Skrtel's back pass at start of season vs man city, Carra's back pass vs zenit. It's not a matter of learning from it, a long as we keep doing it it will keep happening. Also look at the games we've lost or drawn, opposition pressuring us high up the pitch and the "philosophy" cracks!! "

"A bit off the subject - watched most of the U21's last night and just as gutted as when our 1st team gets beat. We had a strong side out on paper and if we hadn't have been reduced to 10 men, as ever against the devils disciples, we could have gone on to win. Saying that, Sterling wasn't on it and Suso, who I've always lauded, was mostly poor..."

"To me he looked disinterested - ATUDE! Is he sulking because he's temporarily lost his 1st team place? It can't be his fitness otherwise he wouldn't have started or would have been withdrawn. The lad needs to buck up! It's times like this when we get an insight into a players character - how much does he want it?!..."

"KINGOFCLUBS- Suso tweeted after the game that he'd had a stomach upset, and wasnt well, but stayed on to try to help due to amount of injuries currently in the u21's- hence was poor! He actually apologised in his tweet."

"I hope the young midfielders are learning quickly because that is our weak point. on the subject of passing we over do it at times, the first thought should always be to go forward and I don't mean long 50/50 balls to the center forward.too much cross and back pass gives opponents time to get in position"

"kingofclubs. Stevie has no doubt seen so much talent over the years come to nothing. I am sure Stevie has seen better talent than Suso, Sterling and so on, witnessed the big hype and then see the players career come to nothing. If I was to think long and hard, I am sure I can roll of many 'next big things' over the years from LFC and other clubs who went on to mediocre careers. "

"If I am to be frank, it did annoy me the over-hype of some of our youth players on these pages. The next this that and the other, the 'saviour of LFC' and then bells trying to point score by comparing un-proven talent to misfits. For me as much as I can't stand teh little midget, Michael Owen was the last youngster we had who straight away broke into the first team and set the world alight. "

"Even it took Stevie a couple of years to become consistent. It may take that time with Sterling, Suso and so on. (dearly hope so) As for Shelvey. Funny really as in Twitter land he has had the brunt of fans frustrations. Many people saying his att-it-ude is wrong and he's a coc-ky so and so. Thought he had fallen out of love with LFC so good to know he's putting the effort in reserves."

Was also doubting Shelvey and his committment, but the lad did well last night with no signs of sulking. "

"KINGOFCLUBS- Yeah, agree. I actually like what BR has done with the 'youngsters'- he's let them taste 'it' then took it away from them. Bodes well in respect of them really really wanting it, or falling by the wayside. Survival and all that."

"Silly errors in defence have cost us this season. The argument is whether it is the wrong tactics by BR or the players not suited/good enough for the style of play. I am concerned about another big clear out in the summer but the most important thing is keeping hold of Suarez."
KINGOFCLUBS
26th Feb 2013 12:19
"The factor missing against Villa & WBA was another potent attacking threat which we now have in Sturridge. KD thought he had it with Carroll but there was no connection with Suarez."

"In time the whole team will click and although we all sink when we get beat we have to remind ourselves that Rodgers is trying to re-build the structure of the whole team and errors/mishaps/defeats will occur. The knee jerk reactionists need to take that on board to lift their gloom and remain positive."

"But a new system and playing style does have hiccups to start (zonal marking with Rafa) being an example. I just won't make any over the top predictions as some do in defence of BR on these pages. As in agreement with Rushjob, it is a shame as a couple of recent defeats should of been wins and put us in with a shout of top4. But hey, what's done is done "

26th Feb 2013 13:35
"KennyD/redbastion...keep faith. It is difficult to instill this style of play into the team. It suits some of the older players and not others. Young players are mainly being recruited as they have more time to adapt and are more willing subjects. The hard work has only just begun so to destroy it all now would be foolish and a complete waste of another seasson, only to start from scratch again..."

"Do you remember what Barcelona did to UTD at wembley? Wasn't it a joy to watch! Rodgers wants us playing the same style - obviously not an exact copy, but a style which totally devours the opposition and spits them out. Our problem at the moment is we don't quite have all the right personnel on board and until we do the inconsistency will remain..."
KINGOFCLUBS
26th Feb 2013 13:36
"Also, the tempo of our play is not high enough - watch Barca v Madrid tonight - it's there in patches but breaks down too often. I sincerely hope Rodgers is allowed the time to create his version of tiki taka with a dash of British grit, just so we can all laugh in the face of Old fergie who will squirm in envy!"
Kmp
26th Feb 2013 13:40
"I like what Rushjob said about the taste of glory:) And to mention our problems I think our ball movement is too slow. Defenders take 2-3 touches before passing the ball. Its vital to be ahead a yard or two when you receive a ball - then you can catch the opposition. But if you receive the ball a little bit late - there is a man in front of you ready to defend. "

""style of play" and "philosophy" counts for nothing without talented, experienced and capable players who can implement and stategies and adapt to the game being played. Those players cost money FSG dont have. So the notion "philosphies" will be victory on the cheap is bullsh!t. Of which thisn season has been full off. BS and BP. "BP" being "Back passes" to Pepe."

Agree with mushscouser re "philosophy" and "progress". Yet as much as I am not a BR fan we can't keep firing managers every year."

"However ,if BR was Roy Hodgson he would've been sacked by now. I think I would reluctantly give BR another 6 months at least. Yet no rookie manager should be using LFC as a learning curve. "

"In fact, since Torres left, Pepe hasnt been the same keeper. At the least we need a keeper to come in and properly challenge Pepe. I do however feel he'll be gone in the summer along with Downing. "

"The thing we have to realise with BR is that he wasn't brought in as a top manager who was going to call on years of experience to turn the club around, he was seen as a top young, next-generation manager with exciting ideas, potential, and the bravery and appee to develop HIMSELF at a club needing fresh ideas. Cont..."
ron23
26th Feb 2013 16:27
"There are understandably fans who want a quick turn around but it was never going to be like that with a manager of 39 with limited experience. It was his ambition and his potential which attracted us to him and you can definitely see an improvement in the style of play. We are exciting to watch going forward but still frustrate. Cont..."
ron23
26th Feb 2013 16:32
"Earlier in the season we had a pass, pass, pass style that more resembled BR's swansea, which helps to understand the early good form of Allen, but it is different now. We still keep the ball and keep possession if nothing is on but we create more and look more incisive. It's called slow progress. We also see downing, hendo, and Jose playing much better. Again, progress..."
ron23
26th Feb 2013 16:37
"People moaned about the lack of incisive football and about the inability of said players. Now people moan about consistency and the leaky defence and I agree with that too. But how about we give this young manager with potential a chance to develop HIMSELF further and fix these current problems? Encouragingly, he has sounded out these problems himself. That's the first step..."

"ron23. Great comments. As humans, we dont tend to have patience, and it is whats needed at the present time. Cultures take time to develop, and its what I keep telling myself after a poor result. Its hard at times though!"
ron23
26th Feb 2013 16:57
"Rushjob, agreed. The reason I write is because I've had to remind myself of this recently. It's frustrating lately but at the same time, I'm filled with quiet optimism. We can't tell the future but we can see the present compared to the past and we are better than earlier. I'm prepared to put up with inconsistencies because previous problems are being ironed out, putting a sock firmly in my gob."

26th Feb 2013 17:02
"And also, Rushjob, I'm not an FSG-hater but I have been suious ever since they refused to back BR over dempsey. That was worrying after stating he wild have more control. But I have had to put this into perspective. They have backed BR to the tune of 50m since his arrival and January was an undoubted success. Cont..."

"They also spent a lot, quite stupidly, prior to BR's appointment, and I often wonder if their recent defiance is an attempt to rebuild credibility in the transfer market. Anyhow, my point is that if they continue to back BR and we get the transfer market right from now on, my optimism will continue to grow. Hopefully BR's ability and experience will also grow and we'll have a mighty fine manager."

"Honestly some fans here behave like little kids. With the Liverlution under BR do you expect a quick fix back to success. After all that took place under those americans and previous managers surely an LFC fan should know there is progress and like BR said its not going to happen overnight although of course its disappoint to see the errors players are making."

26th Feb 2013 18:25
"Sorry Pepe can't see it. To be honest It feels like the football season is over and I'm not the only one who thinks that! For me BR will never be any good for Liverpool but I know he has supporters on here so good luck but he will never ever be good enough for me! Bring back Rafa Benitez!"
Rushjob _
26th Feb 2013 18:31
"Rafa Benitez- really? There's not a chance under these owners of him ever returning. My views remain as they were on FSG. Until the stadium development properly starts, I don't believe a word that they say. Shore up the defence to compliment the forwards, and we'd be 6-8 points better off (IMO). "
Rushjob _
26th Feb 2013 18:36
"Rafa had his chance here, and sadly got distracted with internal nonsense. Not convinced he's as sharp tactically as he was either, and don't buy into the notion that he's deliberately trying to ruin Chelsea. Ruins them, he tarnishes his reputation further. Controversial, but Rafa returning IMO would be a step backwards. (Waiting for the abuse) ! :) "

I think our biggest problem is predictability, we build from the back EVERY time, I like the style br has got us playing but we also need too mix it up too, pepe used to be the master at springing us forward with a quick long throw, haven't seen him do it once thisyr"
81-82-83-84
26th Feb 2013 19:47
"It`s fine playing out from the back, but there have been times when it really hasn`t been appropriate to do so. Playing from the back shouldn`t be stuck to blindly, even if Brendan thinks it is the ideal. It should be remembered that the opposition will find it hard to score if the ball is in their half and why play through 10 outfield players when one ball will sometimes do?"
lfcrollo

"I have watched this season British, Spanish, Italian, German and French top teams playing and Liverpool has been one of the best at times, specially with Sturridge. I think Liverpool can even win the EPL next season if Suarez stays and we can get few strong and tall players into defence. "

Never really had time but from January to about March last season, was the worst performances for years. Research tika-taka."

26th Feb 2013 20:41
"I`d rather see Brendan`s philosophy being played as a guide rather than some doctrine which should be adhered to at any cost. The players need to use their own initiative more in tricky defensive situations and prove that they have footballing brains of their own. It doesn`t make much sense to me, chancing losing the ball at the wrong end. A word to the wise: If in doubt, give it a clout."

"we will have money from sales of those shipped out on loan, and a few in the squad who will be replaced. hopefully Andy does something to make someone pay more than the 12-15 mill we will be lucky to get. If the owners allow BR to spend sale money and add even only 20-25 mill (which they have done each transfer window so far) i think we will be just fine. Futures Bright YNWA "

"koponlads- This is not in defence of KD as I have defended him a few times. But LFC's financial woes happened prior to FSG taking over. Mixture of bad signings and a board who's sole intention was to fleece LFC for as much as possible whilst promising a new ground and so on. "

"Both Kenny and Brendan have played their part ridding of players like Cole, Jovanovic, Poulson, Babel (players with no use but big wages) It clearly needed to be addressed. Off course we don't want LFC to go broke and subsequently fold but equally we don't want to follow Arsenal's lead of maximising profits but minimum investment. "

"A fine balance of being compet-itive but being prudent.When FSG got their man (supposedly) you would of thought they would of backed their man. The club saved millions on wages- Aaua, Maxi, AC and Dirk to name just a few big earners and replaced them with cheap prospects and Joe Allen. "

"The Dempsey saga was embarrassing as was Sigurdsson, lost out over peanuts and effectively ruined our season by ridding of what back up we had to Luis to West Ham. Then we still have the on-going ground development/new ground. 1 statement of intent every 6 months in the form of an email, then silence. This is why myself and so many are cynical of our apparent 'sensible owners'. "

"Shudder to think but imagine if Suarez would of been injured for most of the season or suspended for a long period like last season. We would definately be in a relegation battle. That is not being over the top but realistic. Fans in the masses would be calling for BR's head and FSG to go! "

"Luis has been the only person who's looked like scoring this season until recently. But even Sturridge wouldn't of been so good if he would of joined a team drained of confidence, low league position and finding goals hard to come by. Just not worth thinking about. Luis has been our saviour and should be Footballer of the year!"
