comment on the article

You know when you've been N'Goged.

Was very impressed with Leeds though and hope ye gain promotion this year.

If ye play like that then it should be the Championship next year.

With experts like Lawrenson commenting on LFC - who needs enemies. Got back to the car last night and he commented on Torres coming on - he actually said he came on! - So I thought I missed something - so I checked the Sky recoding when I got home and of course he didnt - Skrtel came on. So was he really watching the game? Last week I got back to the car and he apprentenly was at the Arsenal game and was asked to comment on LFC - he spend about 3 minutes telling us all about the game -minutes after the end? So is he pshyic? Lawrenson - your views are worthless!

It should be pointed out that the Liverpool B team that started the game cost 50million. Put that into perspective with the Leeds team of largely free players.

so Leeds had not been beaten at home for 15 games but we strolled up with our reserves and won. job done.

and whats with all this rubbish from people saying well done leeds blah blah blah.
i couldn't care if the goal was an own goal, hand ball, foul or whatever. it was good to see this pitiful club lose.
they show nothing but contempt to other clubs. just ask United. of course, most of the United followers won't remember 5 years back when Leeds were in the Prem, chanting about Munich etc.

Leeds are where they belong, and whether we deserved to win or not, doesn't bother me.

Amazing, 2.40pm and still no media clamour for the FA to charge Mascherano with a blatant elbow on Beckford that was somehow missed by the ref (but not by TV). Ah, but the Pool are one of the big four so these little misdemeanours can be overlooked. How convenient. After the Adebayor fiasco (for which he was rightly banned) let's see a bit of consistency from the press and the FA.

Not the brightest performance from the lads.

My biggest concern (and dare I say it) is the current form of Jamie C.

Robbed of pace these days, he's bundling players over and giving away needless fouls.

Pace and set pieces must be the order of the day for the opposition until we can shore it up.

after my previous mutterings you will guess i'm a Liverpool man and my liking for Leeds is minimal. however, i agree with you. Mash was both stupid and lucky last night. maybe it was through frustration but there is no excuse. if it does get brought up and he is punished i wouldn't have any complaints.

Having been at the game and seen Beckford fall over at the slightest touch, I watched it again on SKY. Masch definetely catches him on the back of the head, but what a great dive! If anything - both should have been booked -one for the reaction to tug of the shirt - the other for simulation.

We all know the Liverpool squad lacks strength and depth,and we have known this for some while now, we do not need 400 different people posting just to let us know this time after time.

On a positive note, well done Leeds, prob deserved the win and the goal should of counted. And well done Liverpool, alot of improvment needed but got the win and thats all that counts

i'm afraid i have to agree with you, hes had a couple of bad games but im sure he'll be back to his best within a game or two, all the best players have bad patches an this is his first in years. When Agger comes back our defence will be sured up an it seems like there lots of space in the middle when Lucas an Javier play together which worries me.

The zonal marking can work but theres always an opposition player standing unmarked just out the area an its only a matter of time before we get punished for it.

On a bright note great performences from N'gog an Spearing, an Degen was great attacking from the right (tough task getting in ahead of Johnson).

Agree too - it was great to see some of our younger players shining for a change. Spearing's been great in Youth and Ressies and Ngog (although he needs to beef up a bit) looks like he could do a good job in a couple of years.

Squad wise, would love to see more of Ryan Babel's (obvious) skill and ability and a more wing-like form of play with pace and incision from Rafa.

We showed some strong counter attacking play against Leeds on occasion and think that's the way forward (literally)
