Simply didn't turn up. Toure's backpass and Skrtel's own goals summed up the day we had.

Bad day for everyone at LFC.

That's us put back in a more realistic place in the league.

So let's discuss how good we were today.Who is MoM for you lads today, Moses or Lucas? ;-)

Hull are 10th, its not like we lost to Sunderland or Palace.

Need to come away with 6 points for the rest of this week. vital.

May I say we miss Enrique? Looks like we do. What is Cissokho's deal? Is he healthy?

What. The. Fucking. Hell. Was. That? Victor Moses has to be flop of the match - got a chance and he wasted the opportunity.

This is what you get with a team of prima donnas who think they can stroll past Hull without even trying....its not their abilities...its their fucking attitude. Turning up for games they only want to.

Horrific performance. Rodgers will get stick but all the players need to really be ashamed of themselves today. They just lacked desire and heart. They should all be ashamed of themselves. Every one of them except young Flanagan.
BR will deserve every little bit of stick coming his way, mate. He was utterly naive today. But the players are obviously to blame as well. Losers the whole bunch of them.

We were Beaten to every ball.....everything else is a product of that lack of effort.

Why change the team from last week? If a player is good enough to be on the bench- Coutinhno then he is good enough to start. Agger is our best ball playing CB so why was he dropped? If he keeping chopping and changing the team the players are going to get even motre confused

Awful display. Don't really understand why Rodgers don't play with Sakho and Agger together. They are our two best central defenders and we need to get a consistent partnership in front of Mignolet as soon as possible.

Poor performance. Just average all round. No one really showed up. But again, this performance just shows how average our squad is. Too many players offer nothing going forward. We'll be lucky to make the top four.

After Everton, everyone says that 9 points are needed before the visit to Spurs. Well that's 3 thrown away and I wouldn't be surprised if Norwich or West Ham leave Anfield with a result either. Liverpool aren't good enough to get results against the top teams so need to avoid any slip ups against teams like Hull. Today is a disaster for the season. By the time Sturridge comes back the chances of CL football will be dead in the water. This is an extremely poor Liverpool team and its going to be shown time and again in the coming month.

Absolutely no creativity as a result Hull grew in confidence and our defense broke down. We need to stop shuffling the defense and establish a pairing in the heart of our defense. Despite playing with two wingers they didn't provide much width, we had Suarez dropping too deep and didn't look like scoring unless it was from a set-piece

You said it. We have an attitude issue at the club but how do you solve this when these players earn so much in their contracts?

We can afford to have players perform averagely week in week out and still not lose their place to a younger/hungrier player from the reserves?

BR deserves blame today largely because we did not look like a team out there today. We were all over the place.

Players also deserve blame because they simply did not put in the effort the opposition did. Something indefensible but sadly seen under several managers in recent years.

Roy Evans mark 2 for me

There is a spread of blame. Do think had we got the players we really wanted in the summer, we might have not had many silly arse fuck ups

But the inability to settle on a defensive partnership at the back is in danger of torpedoing our season and the should have been dealt with with more ruthlessness. We bought a 18m CB, he isn't playing. Why? because the others are wack, he's hardly being kept out by outstanding recent form is he for fucks sake

Defensive coaching...is Pascoe there just because he's your common law brother in law or something? Because it seems weeks go by and nothing seems to change

5 year contract. Nah. Maybe a one year extension if we get Europa league and think himself lucky, as this is a transition season for loads of teams. We don't qualify for the CL we could really start to drift, as the club won't sack Ayre from his negotiating job, seems obsessed with buying players who aren't ready for the first team anytime soon and Suarez for me won't stick too much more of this. And Rodgers can't seem to sort out the back line

Too many average players and too many poor defensive formations and a lack of quality in depth, a vicious cycle of true mediocrity. That was utter fucking village, it really was

Unbelievably poor... Haven't seen that since Hodgson was around. All the responsibility falls on the players today. Lucas, Sterling, Johnson, Moses and Suarez were all unbearable to watch. Movement was awful. Just embarrassing all the way around. Huge blow to top 4 hopes.

Maybe gerrard shouldn't be a centre back, but interim coach instead :D

gerrard and henderson are passengers and should be replaced. they just move around and use body block. they dont fly in to tackle or even fight out 50/50 and poor lucas always have to mop up after them thus commiting lots of fouls.

and thats why we play badly.

but the point is this has been on for half a season and the reason we are top is because of sturridge coutinho, and only sometimes suarez because he only fights when sturrdige scores (internal strife to be top scorer).

Rodgers is really a poor manager if he cant even motivate players like sterling or moses to grab their chances or foresigh to see that henderson is not the long term answer.

And finally why does coutonho not play in the centre is beyond me.

Anyway, we all know what are the real issues in liverpool football club not just managers and players. the recent premature sackings of lonterm backroom staff coupled with this poor attitude shows that we as a club is not where it should be.
