FSG are the iluminati
- Aug 15, 2010
I've felt that way a lot of times this season. It's weird to feel frustrated coming away from a win, but I have more times than not. We're just really blessed to have such a rampant strike duo. Especially Suarez. I'm curious as to how many times we've played like this only for him to bail us out.Zoran said:That was typical Liverpool, unable to make the most of these opportunities.
This was the type of game we shoud have won before half time, WBA posed no threat and the only negative for us was a lack of a little more precision with the final ball, a bit of end product. Boring atmosphere and they were slow on the counter as well, you have to put that to bed with at least another goal and it's game over, au revoir.
We give them a chance to survive for more than an hour being just 1 down, not clinical enough in attack, going for the wonderful. When they change things a bit and find that goal we panic and force things through individuality. It leads to nowhere and no we're not getting into top 4 only "if Liverpool can keep Sturridge and Suarez fit".
While playing so deep and not taking our chance we literally hand them a way back into it, I know we have to sacrifice a little bit so maybe with the 3 offensive players (Sturridge with the help of Luis did a good defensive job against Everton, he didn't need to track back against Stones, while on the other side Sterling does a great up and down job in the last weeks) Rodgers wants everyone to get back, there is a lack of balance and especially against WBA I don't know why we keep inviting those crosses. Victor f*cking Anichebe, if we're afraid to push that back line a little bit against him, Gera, Brunt, and Berahino the only one offering a bit of pace... then god help us. Toure's mistake was really a bad school error but it was waiting to happen when you see our defence so deep and almost tied together.
When we need that winning goal we end up having 2 separated sides on the pitch, the back 4, those 2-3 up there and no patience in the middle. Big sides stick together, play simple 1-2 touch football with intensity, create pressure against these sides. It happened against Villa as well. When we needed to dominate, we struggled to even get the ball from them. You get that tired, deja-vu feeling that we're never gonna score like that.
We have no quality in our depth and we have to kill these games much earlier.
