Yeah well we're Europa League quality once again

Post by Art Morte on Thu Oct 30, 2014 7:25 pm

Newcastle are finding form. They've won their last two league games and just yesterday beat Man City in the League Cup.

But Balotelli is also finding form, he scored in the League Cup. So, we got this.

Right?

We'll put in our best performance of the year and really take it to Newcastle I'm thinking, regardless of their form. Look for Balotelli and Borini to start up front. Maybe Toure and Lovren again as they seem to be on the same page. Coutinho to continue his stunning form.

Gerrard
Henderson-Coutinho
Sterling
Balotelli-Borini

Get in!

The manager said:

on Balo

“I don’t know, but there is no problem, so we move on.”

“I don’t have to protect Mario, he is fine. There is no concern.”

On Sturridge

“I can only concentrate on his injury now and what my medical team here, who are fantastic, are telling me,” Rodgers said. “He is just in the middle of recovering and we will see the length of time it takes.


“I’m not an expert on genetics or medicine, so I can’t comment. All we know is that he had a calf strain on the back of his last injury, and he is working to recover from that.”

“It is up to myself to find the solution,” Rodgers said. “The players who are available are working very hard, and we are still learning about each other.

“I think this is something that sometimes is missed – you get new players in and with not as much preparation time, you are learning about them in the games.

“But I can see each day relationships growing between the players and the connection in the team.

“Whenever you have players out it makes it a bit more difficult, but you need to find the solutions in different ways and that is what we have been trying to do.

“Gradually as each day goes by I sense we are getting better. “With Daniel out, of course it is a miss, but it is also an opportunity, as we saw the other night.

“Fabio Borini was excellent, a real threat, and put in a wonderful cross for the (Balotelli) goal. “And Rickie Lambert, who hasn’t had many opportunities – his goals will come.

“He is working tirelessly every day, he had some nice touches and his goals will come.”

very important part in Bold there.

So Borini will be surely there on the bench and lets see if we are surprised and he starts.
As expected, Gerrard, Sterling, Mig, Skrtel, Lovren and Balo will start.

Mignolet, Johnson, Lovren, Skrtel, Moreno, Gerrard, Allen, Henderson, Coutinho, Balotelli, Sterling

We'll see what Sterling's role is, but I don't think we'll be scoring aplenty if it's Mario leading the line on his own again.

Same boring, inefficient BS.

Why do we still insist playing Mario as the lone striker?

Why do we glue Sterling to the sideline when a) he's better in a more central position and b) we don't use crosses anyway? He's going to waste there.

Allen's not Liverpool quality, I don't know what he's supposed to offer to our game.

We're creating absolutely nothing. Take Allen off and Borini in and play the diamond ASAP.

lol

That was baaaaaad.

How can every man and their dogs see that Balotelli up front on his own doesn't work, yet Rodgers insists on it still?

We are absolutely clueless as how to create scoring opportunities. Once 'passing it sideways at the back' becomes a trophy, we're off to a streak.

The summer of 2013 was such a fail when it came to transfers; today we couldn't create anything never mind score for the whole game, yet our two most expensive attacking signings, Lallana and Markovic, were left on the bench and you couldn't really miss them, either.

What was it again that Rodgers said about Tottenham last season? When you spend a £100m you'd be expecting to be up there competing for the title? Was it that?

Gerrard Allen Henderson doesn't work. Where are the genius people that said it would?

Defence is even worse than last season. Wtf was Lovren doing for their goal? Moreno is so one footed it's worrysome. He's no better than Enrique defensively, and I'd argue Enrique is probably better going forward too although Moreno has a better cross on him. We conceded against a team with a 17, 18, and 21 year old in their final third.

Attack is laughable. How many shots did we have today? Why do we take the only creative player in the team to put Lambert on? How many passes did we have in the final third?

We'll concede 8+ in our next 2 games if Madrid and Chelsea play at full force.

well it is clear that Brendan has got no idea about how to adjust this new team according to what he has. I hope he realises before it is too late.

I knew Allen doesnt have balls to do something but it was disappointing to see Henderson not doing anything.

Henderson hasn't been at his best lately, but he wasn't a problem. If / when we play with a 3-man midfield, one of them needs to be capable of bringing the ball up a little bit on his own, whether it's passing or dribbling. I think we need either Lallana, Sterling or Coutinho in our midfield trio as they are capable of taking the ball and pushing the opponents back. Gerrard, Allen or Henderson aren't that kind of players.

You can't counter attack if you don't take the lead... Liverpool scored early goals last season and then sat back to counter. Midfield is not as relevant if you're mostly a counter team. But when you need to build up...

lack of creativity from all 3 mids. No point playing a 3 man mid if all of them hoof the ball. Might as well put coutinho in as the CAM and play 2 CMs as holders behind him.

Jesus, Rodgers why are you being so stupid right now ffs Mad

WHO THE FRAK TAKES OFF COUTINHO AND BRINGS ON LAMBERT TO TRY TO GET A GOAL. Coutinho of all people ffs. He was the only one with any sort of creativity in him and when we need a goal he takes him out :facepalm:

He waits until the 70th minute to make a change when the goddam tactics don't work from minute 1 and every man and his dog can see it.

How he still plays Balotelli by himself I don't know. Bafflingly stupid. We deserve to be relegated.

That is Rodgers right now. Open your eyes you *bleep* fool Mad

Pissed me off so much this game. What the *bleep* do these people do all they on the training pitch to come out on the week and deliver this sort of shower of shit.

Inexcusable that was.

Rodgers should beaten to death for playing Johnson over Manquillo. Why on earth did Johnson walked right back into the team when Manquillo didn't deserve to lose his spot? Favoratism? Idiocy? *bleep* this shit *bleep* *bleep*

Rodgers: "It was a game we had almost full control of."
"We passed the ball well and had good options in front of the ball."

FML, did he really just say this :facepalm: Arrogant *bleep* deluded prick. What game was he watching?

He said the same when he was at Swansea tbf, comments like that is what made me dislike him in the first place.

Anyway you will be fine, at the moment you are playing without pace and incisiveness but once Sturridge comes back that will change imo.

Sterling will go back to where he's effective and Balotelli won't have to be someone he isn't. You are at the moment asking players to do things they are not comfortable doing.

I also think Lallana should play more but that aside I don't think it's something beyond repair and still think you will be challenging the top 4.

Rodgers paid 25m for Lallana and made him his own top attacking target and yet we are down 1-0 in a match and he takes off the most creative spark Coutinho and instead of bringing him on, he brings big lump Lambert who couldn't play for my Sunday league team let alone for Liverpool.

I don't think we've played this bad since Hodgson's era.

GJ is better than Manquillo and Johnson wasn't even bad today. In fact he hasn't even been bad this season. Talk about having a grudge ffs. Laughing

Stop playing Mario as the lone striker.

One of Coutinho, Lallana or Sterling needs to be in our midfield trio since we seem to struggle to create attacks with Gerrard, Henderson and Allen. Basically, we need one dribbler in the midfield trio, at least in some games where the opponents are defending deep.

Get the players make more runs, more movement in the final third. We're too stationary and are not thinking ahead, just reacting to what happens.

btw Manquillo is already better defensively compared to Sleep Johnson. Attacking wise, may be GJ is better but that comes once in light years.
