Ya losing by a goal at the bridge. Who would've thought. Let's fucking fire Rodgers.

Hardly. He's got a 16 year old on the bench. Squad depth doesn't cover it.

We've been dominating the past few minutes. They're just looking to defend now. Perfect time to take Lucas off and bring on Aspas.
I honestly think Rodgers thinks he's shit considering how little time he's had and how there aren't many others there. Poor squad is hurting us but have been one or two errors thrown in recruitment wise

Think in the second half we have tried but have hit a wall

Red ball + Lucas + forward pass = blue ball

From what I have seen of Moses, I'd rather make the investment in Smith.
Agreed, but I wouldn't say this is the type of game to further that investment. Smith is on the pitch out of necessity.

Just goes to show how thin the squad is (not even 17 first team regulars now I think?)

Coutinho has been so poor. Shouldn't be afraid of hooking him at times. Seems if he's off it he has an absolute stinker.
He was hooked last match, that worked well didn't it?

I agree he's been pis poor, but we've got no one to replace him with.

I hate to say it but we have been totally outplayed. It depresses me that we're not able to get around the chavs tactics. More direct passing and movement maybe, what we're doing now, playing into their hands all the time is a bit embarrassing.

The difference in this game, outside of straight up natural talent and Liverpool's lack of depth is Lucas and Glen Johnson just being absolutely below the class required. Just horrendous.

Agger is awful at left back but in fairness he has no business playing there.

Have to say though, Willian has been playing possibly his best game for Chelsea so far.

with all of our injuries and lack of squad depth we've looked as good (or bad) as chelsea this half
let get the point(s)

I think Mourinho was quite happy to pack the middle and put a couple of men on Suarez. Management by numbers but that all you need when we don't have Sturridge available

Think he could have murdered us if he so choose but 2-1 will suit his lot fine

They have made the very simple choice to make this a high energy game in midfield, and thrown fresh bodies in to do it. Tactics, but hardly elegant out-thinking.

Webb's fucking bottled it.

Fucking cueballs can't referee for shit.
