Opening up and pushing for the 2nd goal has its own risks against a counter-attacking team. the strategy BR went for is something that Rafa or even Jose would employ. We executed it well.

"SIMON has already earned respect from supporters. he is a world class keeper like LFC have always had. great decision by B.R to see we needed to upgrade pepe. pepe served our club well but was hoping barca came calling. hope rafa gets him going again but now its SIMON SAYS "don't let any goals in". well done simon. proud of you.

"Only an in-form Belgian will be able to stop another in-form Belgian. For now I just wish that we can have a straight 6 victories and when LS is back, he will be motivated to rock the league again. I hope this season spells LFC win 28 draw 7 lose 3! YNWA "

"I think Toure is absolutely fantastic. Just what we need in defense. Commanding, strong and intelligent. However although I highly rate Agger, he does get caught out on occasions particularly towards the end of the game. He admitted last year that he needs to concentrate more in the last 10 mins of the game and it appears he needs to do that more this year too. "

"With Chelsea, bringing in, Whilliam and Eto. LFC must bring in Torres back, try to get Mata. Try to get Alonso and Macherano. Except Mata, all three player knows LFC, all 3 likes LFC and will fit in our style our of play. I like Aspas, but Torres is much better than him (he will provide cover for Dan and Suarez). Allen is not enough good to give a cover for Gerrard or Lucas. "

"Phanjoo- give it a break! Either find something new to say or get off the boards. Sick of seeing your comment reproduced ad nauseum! Realise that the more you submit it the more foolish you appear!"

"'LFC forwards had been redundant for most of the second half' and 'preserve slender Liverpool leads' doesn't exactly sit well. If we're unable to add goals we may just suffer against the likes of Chelsea, ManC, ManU, Spurs, Arsenal et al who seem to carry a plethora of actual goal-scorer/s! We just don't seem able to produce a safety buffer???"

"Why didn't our boys knock the ball around calmly in the 2nd half? Call it "conservative football" or hasty sloppy passes, the lads were living dangerously in the 2nd half."

"Agree plyno1red, a lot of people on here don't understand the constant adjustment that occurs during a game. It's not just about scoring goals. There's the old sayin, "offense wins games, defense wins championships.""

"Fernando Torres is the best striker in the EPL, there isn't a better balanced player than him in the world. It broke my heart when he left us, he wanted to win trophies, he's managed to do it. He was born to play with Stevie G, I wish we'd get him back now. Along with Mata."

"Joe Allen just doesn't fit here and should move on, he's not and never will be a Liverpool type player, he's not good enough, no end product, very average at holding and ineffective at attacking, not good enough for us no way."

"We need to start recruiting real class players, real class, experienced and technical players, who can and will deliver on a consistant basis. Goal scorers who are guaranteed o score every match without fail. Who don't go to sleep after they score but are hungry for more."

"redrivelino I thought of Rafa too as I watched that game. Rafa is all about controlling games and that is what we did."

"We developed a stranglehold on that game, we gradually suffocated Villa little by little, we choked them and snuffed out their counter attack, still it is better if we could get the second goal to give us that little bit of assurance, give it time, it's working. Gerrard and Lucas are proving very effective in their roles, gives Phil The Wizard lots of licence to create his magic."

"versic 25th Aug 2013 14:57 Well not every team play like Aston Villa nor they have Benteke, Weiman and Agbonlahor.. MU, MC, Chelsea, Ars and Spurs are different teams. You can't compare light to light every game is different dude.. With KD we beat the top four teams so what, did we get a top four spot just by beating them?"
