Well said Hendo!..The fight isn't over yet. Lets try and end a really really bad season on something of a high note. Something we can be positive about!

"All the remaining 9 games were supposed to be treated as cup finals (according to Saturday's FLOP - DS)! Players should be banned from giving such hopeless and useless interviews! They actually irritate us the hurting supporters/fans"

"And Id much rather BR came out and said 'I dropped one on Saturday, and I apologise'. If Lucas wasnt fit enough to start, he shouldnt be on the bench. Allen shouldnt be in the squad on form/fitness. You dont need to be a 'student of the game' to see. 4-2-4 was suicide by BR."

I thought Allen needed an op? I bet Hendo feels nice lol..knowing BR preferred an injured player to him. IN BRENDAN I TRUST..but tactics and playing personnel were wrong on Saturday."

Just shut up during the week and fight like you should as a LFC team, than we might make it to something. Totts lost so we would`be now only 6 pts. behind them now.

"If BR is such a good man manager, why did Nuri Sahin, tell the press "thank god I have left Brendan Rodgers"...hardly a ringing endorsement on management ability. What happened to his man management a Reading where to this day he is remembered as "Bodgers"? Questions based on fact. "

"I hope Brendan can avoid FSG's firing instinct and get above the blue sh!te and bring us Europa footy next year. It's not a lot to ask. The worrying thing is Brendan has never tasted victory, so can have no taste for it. Being young is no quality in a manager like it is no quality in a judge or any other position of responsibility. "

"I think the introduction of Sturridge has given BR a dilemma that he did not realise. We seem to be playing 4-2-4. Suarez is not an attacking midfielder. His instincts are to go forward and drop deep from a strikers position so he can draw the defender out"
timH
18th Mar 2013 14:42
"And why is the space between our mid-field and defence always so stretched?! It's heaven for players who like running from deep. In fact, I love when we play teams that adopt that approach as that's where Suarez really causes damage. "
