"The boss knows what he is doing. We don't see training everyday and BR his picked Flanno over Kelly for a reason. For me, it's a coin flip between them both and find it staggering anyone can confidently pick one over the other. Come on lads, I honestly feel this."

Kingwillis10
2nd Nov 2013 16:44
"Forever4God - Really quite simple. Kelly and Agger are not right wing backs, so unless you wanted us to play the ultimate defensive game, I think you and the rest should trust BR. He said he wants players in the right position, he said he doesn't want to be pinned in and attack; this is the answer."
buddha3333
2nd Nov 2013 16:45
"I am not going to allow the inclusion of Flannagan to dampen my mood but surely we could have put Toure there and bring back Agger? Flanangan does not fill me with any confidence and the loss of Johnson is immense as I feel he adds significantly to the way we play. "

"King Willis & Perth Red, please take a stand. The rest of you sit down, shut up, or please leave the premises. BR has selected Flanno on merit - the boy played, and played well, against Arse in April 2011, so let's not use the boy as a scapegoat if we fail to win today. Whoever BR selects, I for one am behind him 100%. For others, the game is over before Kick Off? SHAME ON YOU, YOU ARE NOT REDMEN!"

2nd Nov 2013 16:49
"The comments questioning this decision don't make much sense themselves. It's clear for anyone with even a peanut football brain to guess BR wants Flanno to play RIGHT WING BACK. With 3 CB's to his left and a LEFT WING BACK at the other side. Agger isn't a wing back and neither is Kelly in my opinion. (We're not talking about a RB position btw)"

"kingwillis, I normally agree with you even though you go on one of your rants at me, but you are missing the point. I agree Agger is no wing back but he could have been put back at CB and move Toure who can play wing back there. I hope I am wrong but Flananagan has a mistake in him and this is a huge huge game. But I trust BR so let us see"

"buddha3333 - I don't think you get it, BR wants a players who is quick, good on the ball, wants the ball and can actually run with the ball - to play RIGHT WING BACK. I put it in capitals to drill it into all your heads that this isn't a back 4 formation, its a back 3 with 2 wingbacks. In which Agger isn't sufficient nor is Kelly who looks vulnerable on the ball. OKAY? Lets support the team "
SamAjax66
2nd Nov 2013 16:56
"Flanagan is a gutsy, fully committed kid who will get forward to give width but he can be reckless in his tackling, and that is a worry. Fingers crossed he doesn't concede any vital frees near the box or, please no, a spot kick. "

Kingwillis10
2nd Nov 2013 16:58
"buddha3333 - Toure is not a wing back nor is it a gamer of Fifa. What you are suggesting is BR changes his in-form back three, move one over OUT OF POSITION, when all he needs to do is play an available RIGHT WING BACK. It is about keeping the in-form back 3. I prefer BR's option than to dismantle the entire defence, that's idiotic."

"I'm not worried abt Flanangan starting. I'm sure he'll do well. But how many more time is kelly going to take to start a match ? I guess it was the same injury happened to Lucas. He started the match in August after getting injured in Nov. But Kelly got injured last september. It's already 14 months"
LFCMANAGER

Kingwillis10
2nd Nov 2013 16:59
"And Agger? sure;y we can't just bring him in because of the name on the back of his jersey? Sakho, Skrytl and Toure look like the have been playing for years in my opinion. I just think with the defence you don't touch it if it doesn't need touching. And anyway, Toure just looks dodgy at Right Wing back, mind Southampton? And that was RB. I hope we win even more now and Flanno scores!"

"People who are now asking why Kelly didn';t start, well is you seen what BR last had to say about him and also kept up to date with Kelly's own interviews you would see this was even worse than Lucas'. To suggest he can just come in and play out of position in a huge game, not MATCH fit and to ignore a genuine, is actually riskier than just playing a match fit RWB. Okay?"

"kingwillis, you are getting high on your own supply sir! Agger is our best CB and it has nothing to do with his name on the shirt. If it is a choice between bringing Agger in or Flannagan who has not played for yonks in a position he is not suited to, then the choice is simple. Toure could have played this role in my opinion better than Flanno, but let us see"

"Anyway, there is no need for us arguing, we lost the game before we started it, hope we learn from our mistakes next time.We but not good enough to beat better, and sensible arsenal side"

"doesn´t look like we are quite there (as most knew already) still hopeful we can get top 4 this year. Gerrard is not the Gerrard of old and Lucas need to bring a bit more going forward sometimes. lets hope we can get one goal to make it a bit exiting the last15 minutes! henderson hasn't brought enough either"

"Arsenals midfield is amazing! I love Lucas but they're midfield sums up how you can't have a player that can only tackle. All they're players pass move and we can't handle it! "

"I refuse to believe we will sucb to our worst defeat tonight. Agger and Moses. Get in! Gerrard and Lucas - STEP UP! Henderson - Probably your last season if you keep wasting opportunities. Centre backs - STAY VIGILANT! Mignolet - Keep calm and do the Man U."

"I'm sorry Mr BUCK Bodgers but if you think Sakho is an £18 million defender you are sadly lacking. What was Mr Ayrehead thinking calling Sako a marquee signing. Stupid idiot. And what is Cissoko? Useless. That's what. Borini loaned out. Aspas wants out (poor anyway). Alberto? Assaid? Allen? Waste of 70 million quid."

"Agger needs to be in the starting 11, the other defenders are good, but he is the organiser in defence. Cissokho and Flanno weren't quite up to scratch. Coutinho will need game time and confidence. We got out run in the midfield today. SAS didn't have there best performance today, most important thing now is we bounce back from this."

"Agger will be off seeing as he can't get a match ahead of the useless 18 million man sako. Suarez and studge will be bought by clubs with owners who will spend the requisite money to go from prudent to ambitious. Skrtel will join napoli for CL. Who can blame them. "
Jaayson

"I was hopeful before today, but after seeing Flanno was going to start and our general line up, that hope faded. Ideally our strongest line up would have Coutinho, Agger, Enrique and Johnson in the starting XI. This was not the case today and the different in class showed after the 20 minute mark."

"All these posters slating the players & BR, where were/are your posts when we win! Still sat in 3rd position with what most of the super-intelligent fans think is a rubbish squad. If you think you know better, do your badges & apply for the job. Pathetic plastics supporters."

"I wonder!! maybe BOOKMAKERS asked BR to feed such a weak selection, we need explanations why? If Agger is fit then why not start him and Skrtel with Aly on left and Flanno,KElly on right or Toure and play 4-4-2 on even 4-5-1, why try play beautiful football like Arsenal when they have better technicians..? my weekend is destroyed, sometimes you can go to park the bus, its part of the game.. "

"We missed Enrique and Johnson, and for this game especially Enrique. Even the simplest analysis shows Arsenal favouring that right flank, so why didn't we strenthen in that area? In retrospect, Agger would probably have been better than Sakho. Lucas' positioning could have been better considering he should have known what area most of the attacks would be originating from."

"Breden Rogers arranged for the defeat before the game even started. How on earth can you throw in Flanagan for this magnitude of a game ????????? Why should Henderson be playing every 90 minutes of all games switching him different positions at will ?????? This is the kind of game Sterling will use pace to counter the opponent. Skrtel was magnificient. Now back to drawing board again. "

"Sakho was brilliant as he always has been, why are people slating him? Flanno was ok too, hes no Johnson and we missed him A LOT! but kelly would not have done any better. Lost 2-0 to the most on form team away from home. get over it and support the team."

"I knew before the game that if we play 3-5-2 against Arsenal at the Emirates then we would have a really difficult game koz the gunners are so quick at counter attacks and would expose the gaps in between the defenders and midfielders/wingbacks(Contd)"
Genius8fab
3rd Nov 2013 9:38
"The first goal would testify this with no cover from flanno. Another reason for that first maybe due to the atude of our defenders. They tempt to merely look at the ball coming in from crosses rather than trying to tackle the ball and clear it from danger.(Contd)"
Genius8fab
3rd Nov 2013 9:41
"4-5-1 or 4-4-2 would have been more comfortable when gunners attack in numbers. For the second goal we were too slow to press the ball and gave Ramsey too much time on the ball. We cant let such thing happen just outside the box. We do not seem to have the freedom and space to shoot from distance then why are we so prone at being faced against shots from range(Contd)"
Genius8fab
3rd Nov 2013 9:42
"Goals we conceded from distance were at Newcastle, Arsenal and Sunderland (despite Mignolet saved the first attempt). We got tough games coming up away at the bitters plus away at Spurs, City & Chelsea. The rest games we should expect to win and lets put on a good run till the end of the year to see if we are close enough to the top of the table.(Contd)"
Genius8fab
3rd Nov 2013 9:47
"Another talking point is that Gerrard seems to be inexistent in our midfield. BR should notice this and may have SG8 rested for easy games at home for example. He is not the SG we know who would be so influential against the bigger teams due to his age and maybe tiredness.(Contd)"

"Cissoko and Sakho were poor as was Skrtel with only Kolo being more hungry to try play forward passes more often than the others. Hendo lacked energy and pace when he got a chance to roam free to get into the box only to have his shot tamed at the keeper. He even came close when he volleyed above the cross bar from a few yards.(Contd)"
