FFS? He certainly was not garbage.WrongIslander said:Luis. How anyone can vote Skrtel is beyond me. He would have been the reason Soton scored more than 1 if their finishing was better, he was garbage and we were lucky.
Suarez was fantastic but we were on the back foot for almost 60 minutes of that match, had to scramble clearences, put in crucial tackles and hoof it clear to keep our clean sheet - Skrtel was the best defender on the pitch.
Maybe your nerves got the better of you as you watched the game and you were doing a lot of shouting at the TV blaming defenders but truth be told while we had a lucky break or two defensively we were abject in the first half and had a lucky break go our way offensively for the opener.
For long periods in the 1st half our midfielders didnt offer up much protection for our back four and the game wass stretched - Rodgers had us drop deeper in the second half and took of Coutinho who couldnt complete a five yard pass (he had a real stinker)
