What wrong with Liverpool ?
« on: January 06, 2008, 07:30:06 PM »
They draw 1-1 with Luton.


AN own goal by Liverpool’s John Arne Riise piled on the problems for Rafael Benitez and earned Luton a deserved replay in a thrilling third round FA Cup clash at Kenilworth Road.

The Reds looked to have won when Peter Crouch made the most of two defensive blunders to put them in front in the 72nd minute.

But Luton were level in three minutes when Riise turned a cross from Drew Talbot past his own keeper.

Crouch had twice wasted clear chances to put Liverpool in front in the 34th minute, but the tall striker could not find the target on either occasion.

And they nearly went in front in the 51st minute when Riise let fly with a 22-yard drive which took a deflection off Chris Perry, only for Luton keeper Dean Brill to pull off a great save by palming the ball to safety.

Benitez thought Crouch had done the trick 17 minutes from time though, when a catalogue of errors led to the England striker breaking the deadlock.

Chris Coyne lost possession on the halfway line and there seemed no danger until Perry’s wayward header gave Andriy Voronin a clear run on goal.

Brill saved the substitute’s shot, but it ran free to Crouch to fire in.

But Luton earned a deserved replay at Anfield when Riise turned in from six yards out.

Nah they ent so bad.

Is the rotation policy that killing them. They cant field a settled side and build any momentum.

Is only 3 men does get sure sweat on a regular basis. Reina, Carragher and Gerrard. The rest does hadda cross they fingers and hope for the best.

If they settle they side they go be set.

Benitez is too smart for his own good. The rotation policy is obviously failling and he refuses to accept that. Besides, that team is made for Champions League & he still seems to not understand how English ball works. They have so much talent and stills leaves a lot to be desired in the EPL, on top of that, they're not very exciting to watch.

In a word....actually 2....

Steven Gerard

Excellent player.  Don't know exactly where to play him & how to use him.

The team is built around Gerard and that is why they are so inconsistent.  On his day, he can be brilliant, but the positives he brings to the table...his aggression, hard work, tackling, hard shot etc often do not overcome his tactical & disciplinary shortcomings.

They need to let Gerard go.  Square peg in round hole.  And is not a jes a Rafa ting. Houllier had the same problem.  So too Ericsson & McLaren to a lesser extent.  It go be REAL interesting to see how Capello will play him.

They plain suck...

On top of that...Rafa sees himself as the second coming. Just like Martin Jol, they think it is about them. Both are actually good coaches but too arrogant to succeed.

I still care about Liverpool, but you're right. The team has simply not been the same after Barnes left. Although I only caught Barnes at the tail end of Liverpool's era of dominance as a youth, I could definitely see the difference between that team and the subsequent teams of the nineties and the millenium. That team had what the nineties and millienium teams lack: a killer instinct and a championship edge. The teams of the nineties and millenium, while competitive enough to finish in the top five every season lack these essential chamionship winning ingredients. Ever since Kenny Dalglish left, there has been no manager that has been able to develop these qualities.

Maybe Dalglish needs to come back...Maybe that may work..Who knows.

They have one in Torres, but Rafa have him starting and benching one week after the next.

If 16 in 19 from Torres is not a good strike rate, then what is?  The rest of the team needs to stop watching Gerrard and Torres and play some ball.  These two have accounted for half of 'Pool's tally for the season, and when they don't play the team looks toothless, which was the case on Sunday.

A man say let Gerrard go yes!!!
well now I have seen it all.

actually a next man bawl they need a good striker...NOW I have seen it all.

Rafa need to quit the rotation policy, so he can field a team that is playing together consitantly and gelling, all that changing up of players coupled with the set of injuries, well lets jus say its a good thing the players wear names on the back of their jerseys.
Vronin and Crouch could ride out too.

the man say let Gerrard go oui!!!

The man who say let Gerrard go is correct. The fulcrum of the team is Stevie G, but apart from the occasional blockbuster (and match winning) goal, I really don't rate him as an influential midfielder. That sounds crazy, but compare/consider  his effectiveness in the passing game, or in being a midfield lynchpin. Alonso was/is a better passer of the ball and Benayoun seems a more  creative player as well. Rafa is not using his players' strengths, but also, because of Stevie G's influence at the club, you get the impression that the rest of the team is just waiting on him to do something. Rafa/Liverpool need to ditch Stevie G. just like how Wenger ditched Henry, so that the team can move forward.
But it's Liverpool, so they can rot as far as I'm concerned  :devil:

Cesspool has no strikers besides Torres.

Voronin is not on this level. Kuyt is just a hustler. Both horrible.
