A one word description – embarrassment
I know many will say ‘but hey we were playing a class team’ but watching that was hard. We never looked a shadow of last seasons team. We never showed any class whatsoever. Picture this – If Suarez was playing instead of Balotelli do you think the score would have been different? I think not. With our pathetic defence every team on the planet has a chance against us.
Brendan Rodgers has proved that he has not got the skill to mould a team from his own acquisitions. the £100m or so he spent on 2nd tier players could have been used to buy 3 world class players. A like for like to replace Suarez included. We have to watch the likes of Manu and Arsenal do just that.
Now for the controversial bit – I would drop Jordan Henderson and here’s why ….. This guy is 24 years old going on to 25. He is at his peak and I am still of the same opinion that I was in his early days at Anfield. I saw nothing but a kid that ran. He was extremely fortunate in having Kenny’s confidence week after week when he was simply awful. Rodgers is supposed to have changed him after nearly giving him the boot. I would like someone to point out what he actually does? His passing is safe, his shooting is pathetic, his midfield craft is non existent so what is it that we all see in him?
I honestly think Liverpool would benefit from a class attacking midfielder such a Reus to replace Henderson in January. We should pay what is required. Henderson will not improve and in my opinion, keeping him will keep us a 2nd tier team.
Others that don’t show their worth are Joe Allen, Glen Johnson, Mario Balotelli and of course Lovren, Skrtel & Mignolet.
My other worry is Markovic, a player that has also not shown even a glimmer of the skills we were told he had. Tonight bringing him on for the only player that looked lively, Coutinho absolutely mystified me?
We all know Stevie is on the back end of his career and the stupid talk about Henderson being his successor leaves me howling with laughter.
I don’t know what is happening to our club but I watch us going backwards whilst the profits go upwards. And once again we are going to be taunted by the Scum lot who will relish all this.
Brendan Rodgers took all the plaudits last season but now when he is really tested he is failing miserably. He’s brought his own players in and even without Suarez, we are far worse than last season. He seems to be making serious error’s with his transfer policy. Suso for instance, why? – Why does the very ordinary Henderson play every minute of the PL games?
A start would be to clear and replace (even with the loanees and Academy players) Skrtel, Lovren, Mignolet, Johnson, Allen, Borini and Henderson.
Lets build the team around Sterling, Sturridge, Can, Manquillo, Flanno, Moreno, Suso, Lallana and use Gerrard when or if.
You guys will find this harsh but that must be because you are prepared to accept the drivel we are being served up week in week out.
Ask yourself this … How many of our players would replace like for like in Man, City, Chavs, Arsenal
Who would you get rid of?
