Good result!!

Premier League Liverpool
comment on the article

But if we play like that against a good team we'd get spanked. I hope we improve against Blackburn else we won't get a good result.

Fairly easy win but most importantly for me, Ryan Babel has had 3 good run in's in a row and performed. Ye he disapeared a bit in the 2nd half but i can't remember a time where he's been as effective and gone past a few player and looked as dangerous.

Still far from convinced though and would rather get the money back but hopefully he will buck his ideas up and continue to work hard and give us more of the same.

As much as i rate Agger and Skrtle had a great season them 2 in the middle doesn't work. If Jaime ain't there at set pieces we suffer even more than usual.

I mean 3 people on the near post and Insua covering centre of 6 yard box to the back post, we're gonna get punished by Blackburn if we do that.

Unless Nando plays then we'll just have to outscore em! smiley

It's win a long way from home so, for the first time in a long time, I have to give it to Rafa.

As a side note, did you see Gerrard? He couldn't have looked more 'put out', he definitely puts across the impression that either, a) he think the Europa League is below him (understandably) or b) his not enjoying playing at all (reasons I won't speculate on).

Our new tactics, try bore everyone to death and then snatch a goal. It's exciting stuff

Funny how every and I mean every comment in the media and in commentary last night talked about the failings of zonal marking....

Not a one talked about Babel's goal scored from a free kick which was from man to man marking.

Funny that.

I know I shouldn't say this, being a manchester united supporter, but it really really really is time to start looking for a new manager.

Rafa's tactics are not producing the kind of results a club like liverpool expects, and to a lot of people rafa represents a failed experiment.

I'm sure he's a knowledgeable and efficient tactitian, it's just that he doesn't seem to have a plan B. Coupled with what seems like a complete and utter obstinate refusal to adapt, liverpool are now scrabbling around without a clue.

Too many tactics and not enough inspiration. Drilled, prepared and unable to ad-lib. No wonder so many of the players look frustrated.

eric the mighty - welcome
Man Utd or whoever: you are both articulate and fair in your assessment - IMO

Liverpool currently limited tactically / lack of flair / limited inspiration !!

Yet this time last season they were a pleasure to watch ; after early on in the season throwing points away with same team / same tactics

Maybe our boys ignored Rafa in the second part of the season : shades of Istanbul - just do what comes naturally

Now: too slow / too square / too defensive / too obvious

Poor defensively for a supposed top side

Both Alonso and Arbeloa are missed

Torres as the target man in this current set-up will be out more than he plays

Attack is best form of defence !!

When was the last time we saw anyone take a defender on with pace
Nando on Rio - months ago

Reading : the kid McNuff ran straight at the defence with pace - should have been a goal of the season - at least the kid had the flair and savvy to run at them

Portsmouth : bottom of the league on the day
they made us look poor with basic pace and flair from foreign journeyman players

Man Utd - lacking this season by your own high standards but overall play the game the way I want to see - attack - let the opposition worry about you

Good post eric - evident football fan
