If there were more subsutes available, sturridge would ended up playing as CB... Gerrard at his worst game ever.. This is what happens when we keep on talking, talking, talking the whole week... Everton remains unbeaten to add to misery...

"What a poor team selection and what a poor performance.....no creativity and if sturridge could be less selfish maybe we can score more goals....who selects 4 CBs in home games. Mid table..here we come."

"Well I think it's safe to say, based on that performance, we ain't gonna win the league! Even with Suarez back, without the supply from midfield he ain't gonna be scoring. We missed Coutinho, but can't rely on one player. If ever we were crying out for the return of Xabi Alonso it is today!"

""And i ask my self why in place of injured Johnnson Martin kelly is Not playing yet with U21 he played 90 Mins.. BR lied to us that SAKHO's price will not guarantee him starting position. Today we lost the game because of Bad decisions by the Manager and Not giving MARTIN KELLY A CHANCE.""

"Dreadful performance, team looked lost, no shape and penetration, 4 centre backs as a back 4. Having said that if Gerrard's free kick goes in and Sturridge gets the penalty could have been a completely different game"

"I warned all of you. Suarez coming back was the only issue on here... but I thought the manager would get the right atude into the players. Obviously he didn't.... By the way, 4 CBs at home against a mid-table team, with your playmaker out injured, your top scorer from last season still suspended, where did you think should the goals come from ?"

"We did nothing to deserve a result in that game, Southampton were the better team & deserved the win. Poor game all round for all players, with maybe only Toure showing the urgency required to reverse the result. Just goes to show how difficult this league is. Hope this brings out the anger of players for the ManU game."

"Thanks to Mignolet if not it would have been embarassing 3-0 or 4-0 win.. The reason we lost is we are getting over-confident and complacent when we win a couple of matches in row.. Mancs will be laughing somewhere waiting for us.."

"The work rate of Sturridge was poor & never passed the ball to Aspas. Aspas should stay after 1st half as he would run back into space to receive the ball. I rather he runs more & play less mins instead of staying for 90. Gerrard work rate was poor today too."

"If DS still play like that all the way til the end of the season, he will never improve. If he wanna play alone play on another field!

"From the moment the game started both Toure and Sakho looked uncomfortable and that seemed to rub off on the whole 11 for the rest of the game.... I think it might be a little trial and error with the back 4 for a little while today was a massive error. Onwards and upwards though, support the club no matter what the result.... Stevie looked flat as a tac."

"Well it had to happen but at home to S/hamptom was not the way I expected our first defeat to come. Four center backs on the park at once , not a good move in my book and our squad is too thin. Sako worries me and Aspas is looking a real waste of money. We could be outside the top four come monday ,I just hope we will be back in it soon."
ajp81
21st Sep 2013 17:08

"GERRARD was a really good player but now he is complacent and lethargic . If you dont agree just watch him in his last 30 games his work rate is poor and does not support attack. people dont be stuck in the past SG is a legend and will be a legend but right now he needs to be dropped ."

"Silky0312 - I also like Stevie, but he's just another member of the team and he doesn't lead the team like he should recently - if anything he depresses the other members around him. Been over worked and needs a rest.Need someone to grab the team by the scruff of the neck and shout and wave there arms (just like he used to)"

"Bad day at the office, but that happens sometimes. The childish over-reactions are shameful though. The players will react in the next game & Suarez is back with a point to prove. Being top was a false position, we've been outplayed yet won all season. Today that luck ran out."

"NIC 19:11 Got to admit though mate, we do need to do something about it quickly otherwise it will be another "nearly season" Silly mistakes again by BR that I thought he'd learned from - KD was critical of BR when he 1st started and said something along the lines of "you cant do that in football" yet history is repeating itself - 4 centrebacks when Enrique is proven? "

"The MANANGER and HIS PLAYERS let the footbll club down today. If we loose so much shape because of Coutinho then we need a radical rethinking. Captain Gerard was so shocking today so was the idea of having four centre backs in the starting 11. "

"The truth is bad decisons in the transfer market has cost us,Look at the bench no striker or player who can change the game.Signing aspas and alberto when you have a better player in suso who you then loan out.Brendan makes it hard for himself,its ok saying drop gerrard but who do we have to replace him?Top 4 is a must this season or brendan will be looking for a new job.sort it out"

"I made reference to it 4 games ago and I will again. If we are going to play short passing football it means there must be movement and players must be technically strong and creative. We cannot play with Gerrard, Lucas and Hendo on the field same time i am sorry. 2 games now Gerrard and Lucas were awful. How many times did Gerrard go into the box? AWFUL today"

"Why play 4 centre backs. Unbelievable!Kelly is fit now and Enrique is available. You play Aspas from the start and change him for 2nd half. He has not shown anything the last 4 games. You sub him because you made a mistake. People talk about the first touch of Sturridge. The first touch of Sterling is no better. Mark my words, Aspas and Sterling are too weak for our team."

"Yeah for sure this result has been coming but for the ones on here that are saying you are 'embarrassed to be a red' shame on you. If you are EVER embarrassed to be a supporter of Liverpool Football Club then you need to go elsewhere. You are NOT a fan and YOU are the embarrassment. You absolutely disgraceful supporters, nothing but glory hunters. Go support the Mancs. "

"Sterling plays so well for U21s his forward runs..1st touch finishing..which are really independent of type of opposition..he had a golden chance in the 90th min(sturridge the creator)and his 1st touch was horrendous..i just dont get it...its the mentality..the fear of losing..lack of composure..our side needs a sports psychologist more than anyone..."

""Dont wamt to state the obvious ( performance wise ect ) but lets not be too harsh on the players/ manager, cos it possibly a one off-just thought the whole team lacked a bit of energy- also the ref early on in the game gave us nothing- obviously we are all hacked off but other results tmrw might go are way( hopefully )""

"Pochetino tactcally won the match off the pitch..he exposed our inability of playing out from the back..forced us to go long and used players like wanyama to win aerial duels ensuring poor possession in midfield..lucas and gerard cnt play together..playing 4 CBs all out of position was the worst decision this season.."

"Shocking. 4 center backs, 2 defensive midfielders. do you expect to hurt or force opponents into mistakes while sitting back? no. instead they score on a setpiece. its simple. the tactics were wrong. sort it out. AND WHERE IS ALLEN. i think he showed signs of improvement in preseason."

"We got what we deserved. Dominated today by Southampton,they pressed us out of the game,got at our back four,then at our midfield who were not conducive to possession football at all. Long ball to Daniel or Victor was all that we had in the locker. Very dissappointing indeed. "

"Probably the worst performance in the midfield I've ever witnessed in a LFC game. Who's going to create chances now that PC is out. I hate to say it, but it's not going to be Stevie G! He was out of sync and off the pace the whole game. Aspas was horrible. Moses almost as bad. I'm just not getting what he brings to the team. Thank God for Simon or it would have been a lot worse."

"It's difficult to know where to start really. The team was poor individually and collectively. It's time to get back to basics. If we stop the other team from scoring then we've always got a chance to win it. We could keep the ball much better too. If the players control the possession as we know they can, it'd be a decent platform to start from."
Regulus

"More players need to back themselves when attacking opportunities arise, even if it means more running. Sometimes there was no one to pass or cross to in the box. It's fine Sturridge floating about if he's creating chances, but he'll do more damage in the centre, waiting to bang them in."

"I have watched all our games this season and this result was just waiting to happen. We have been riding our luck so far and that luck just ran out. We were poor against Swansea, only scoring because the opposition gifted us two goals. We've bought too many defenders and not enough quality attacking players (note the word "quality", was anyone else linked with Aspas when we bought him ?)."

"That was insipid, disgusting, disgraceful and seemingly we are back to where we were at the start of next year. The team list bemuses everyone, c'mon 4 CBs, what were you thinking BR. That surely contributed to the performance across the pack including our captain marvelous. Obviously players aren't confident with what they were told to do."

"Stating the obvious..but defining team parameters -with the minimum risk of realising a loss should translates to LE (lb), DS (cf) SM (GK).These variables must remain fixed - barring injury. SG (possibly) should be deployed in his historical role with LS returning -because playing deep and out of position, is doing neither himself nor the team any justice (no disrepect to SG intended). "
