Can't even celebrate this 'win'

Premier League Liverpool

comment on the article

Still extremely poor to struggle so much to take 3 points off Derby. As a team we are not good enough to win the league title.

We are not even challenging...just trying to keep up.


Without Stevie we'd be gone already... I see no progress under Rafa.

mobykidz:

Absolute rubbish, with the sole exeption of us being poor when going a goal down.

We've got that second goal on many, many occasions this season, the only times we haven't have been Derby, Arsenal and Man U.

Again, if you expected us to win the title this season, your fault for over high expectations.

We are, however, putting together a solid challenge, despite the fact that we've had pretty significant bad luck with injuries.

It really boggles the mind how often people say stuff like 'Rafa should play player X more' when 'player X' has in fact been injured.

Same happened with Torres: "Torres keeps getting rotated", "If Torres plays etc"...said repeatedly while he was out injured.

Note also that with the exception of Pennant almost all of our long term injuries have happened while the players have been on international duty.

No other club would have the second best defence in the league while missing one of their first choice centre backs.

No progress under Benitez? One European cup beating some of the best sides in Europe. Runners up last year. Highest points total in Prem we ve ever had. Qualification AGAIN in European cup.An FA cup.

We used to have biscan and cheyrou amongst others in midfield. We now have Alonso Mascherano...amongst others. Instead of Cisse or Baros, we have Torres!

No I also can not see any progress under Benitez at all

I agree there is an improvement. but you keep missing the point. the good players become excellent players when surrounded by world-beaters. They concentrate on doing their job whilst the innovators do their upfront. See man utd, arsenal and chelsea (tho lesser degree). but look at us...kuyt, crouch and voronin. OMG - is that a threat? At least crouch is different. The other two don't have any pace or pose an intelligent threat when they play. can we not go for the 'we've got 3 points'. its a kop out - the reality is we won't win the league unless we get rid of the dross (risse is prime candidate seeing we pay him 80k a yr) and start to splash cash on actual talent. you can turn a skilful player into a team player but not the otehr way around.

u,like Tony Gale's (sky sports 'pundit')desire is to see an english mgr managing a top 4 side (Good!).a possible( i say possible) difference between his view and urs is that he's convinced that Avram Grant doesn't hve a good enuf CV...my point is that pple ought to realise that the best english manager left middlesbrough languishing in a relegation fight when he took over as england manager; the best englsh mgr failed to qualify forEURO 2008; IF THAT'S NOT ENUF, can u tell me : which English manager currently managing a premiership side has got a better mgrial crendentials than Avram; and be4 i stop:if an English mgr is good enough to manage a top side ,then there is nothing preventing such from guiding his team to a top 4. People...one needs to consider things objectively be4 coming up with unfair criticisms...good luck

Shame on you that you can't celebrate a winner, I am sure you are not a true RED.Derby had a game plan to defend vigorously and Liverpool were unlucky not to score many goals. I still remember that it was this Derby that beat the reigning champion - Man-U recently. You must be thick not to celebrate a win, however it comes.On the forth-coming match,LFC is a legendary Club and anything could happen if we play well on the night. I believe that we can beat Man-city hands down if we play our natural game with our top players on the field. LFC is a class apart to Man-city, and we have to demonstrate this on the field. Rafa is a great manager but needs to improve tactically. I predicted 3- 1 in favour of LFC.

Never undermine the Mighty Red, we can still make it in STYLE.......................SOS

---------------------------

True Reds would not out up with continual mediocrity. What is a true Red? Someone that accepts everything coming out of the club a gospel; an 18 year drought without domestic successas acceptable as long as they can point to more trophies, the majority of which were won over 20 years ago.....

Are True Reds allowed to question the current campaign? Aren't they allowed to question the tactics of a manager who has been there 4 years compared to some that may have followed the ckub 10-20-30-40 years? Aren't they allowed to not accept displays such as the ones ay Reading or at Derby as not fitting of the Red shirt...

Wat is a true RED ....?
