Liverpool (Away)

Recommended Posts

Id say thats 2 stones mistakes

 

I think the second one is partly on him and partly on our set up. He basically has the entire right flank for himself. He's found space there on offense, but he has also had to recover quickly on defense and he didn't do so quickly enough.

 

The third goal is just bad team play. Centre backs pushing up while Naismith was late closing out on the man with the ball. Either Naismith closes down sooner or Jagielka and Alcaraz sit back a bit.

We can't even put two passes together by the sound of it, not playing our game at all and Liverpool wanting the ball more than us

panicking, Liverpool just closing us down very quickly, which is the weakness for a passing team

We're exposed every time we go forward, Liverpool know where the outlets are and we're not covering them at all.

they're just closing us down and countering, it's nothing more than that....

I'd start my half time changes by having someone actually occupy the right wing slot full time. Take off Barry for McGeady probably.

 

cant take him off, we need the centre solidifying. I'd wait til Pienaar inevitably fades and then bring him on

Its not Atkinson's fault, although he is the usual redshite supporting wanker, they are just too good for us right now, they are making us look second rate, or rather WE are making us look second rate!

Well that was not good at all... We didn't play badly for large parts, we just got exposed for some pretty poor decision making and more disappointingly its from players who should know much better.

 

Liverpool have been clinical and they have done what we couldn't do in the first game.

 

Pienaar is frustrating the hell out of me but at least when he isnt giving the ball away he has find space to get us moving up the pitch and getting some possession. Baines needs to really step up as well as he has been too quiet.

 

Mirallas is doing well though and on another day he could have scored at least one by now. We need to get out there, get an early goal and start putting them on the back foot instead of the other way round.

There is a lot of poor performances. I'm looking mainly at Jagielka and Pienaar. The latter has been shocking.

 

Take him off for Mcgeady.

 

Stones was at fault for the second - too far up the pitch.

 

All in all they are ripping our back Four apart. Mainly down the right side. (Stones and Jagielka)

 

Barkley is not fit.

Fookin awful at the back,

 

I think its more that we are getting caught on the break (3rd goal aside).

 

Just looking at the 2nd goal, Barry plays a silly ball into Baines who miscontrols it. I think its harsh to blame Stones for that one, because we were in possession and in a good area before we turned the ball over.

Damage limitation now. Can't see us getting any points we would do well getting our goal difference back down.

 

P.S there is not enough Kevin Mirallas's in the team. Again looking a class above our other frontmen.

Obvious caveat that I haven't seen a kick of the ball, but I think we need to come out with some change. What we're doing is not working. I know our players are limited, so maybe push Mirallas up top, Barkley out to the wing and Naismith in behind for a while, at least give us the pace to get in behind.

What else can we do from here?

Next time let's just skip the match and lose 3-0 anyway eh lads? Spare us the embarrassment and allow our players to properly recover from their injuries. Oh, and we'll also avoid even more injuries.

 

I thought we were going to go there and show some bottle for once.

 

Feels like watching a film where the bad guy wins. Over and over again.

Stones is playing RB not RM. if not all his fault he was definitely a massive contributer to it.

Need to move the ball quicker at the back to midfield, we're allowing them to pressure us and too often we are turning back to Howard.

Pienaar not up for the game, rarely got the final ball to an Everton man.

Move Mirrallas in beside Ross Barkley and McCarthy just behind them, with McGeady out wide. I'd hook Pienaar now.

don't even try and suggest this is the ref's fault man...we've got what we deserve here

Agree 100% we have defended like a pub team. Loads of possession and no penetration.

Mirralas again put best. Defense all over the place. Ross playing well but should shoot early.

I think my initial prediction of 4-2 to them might come true (at least I'm hoping now).

 

We come out, dominate and pull 2 back, before they get us on the break in the last minute. If we show desire and dominate but still lose, that's something to take out of the game. Of course I want a win.

 

Ossie on for Pienaar

But his role is too push up to allow a pass out from midfield, like the RB does every week. If we dont lose the ball between Baines/Barry we dont concede, simple as that.

Defending way too high. We don't have enough pace to do that. They'll pick us off all night if we continue. Anyone would. Piss poor.

This. Piss poor tactics.

 

We are are without our quickest defender in Distin and we keep getting caught out because our 2 CB's are on the fucking half way line. Joke.

If Barry turns to his right instead of playing the ball back to Baines, Stones is in space for the pass as he is meant to be.

You're right but he was way way out of position. It's not even questionable.
