Friends Of Liverpool

In a battling display by Roy Hodgson’s Liverpool as we eventualy emerged victorious thanks to a good finish by Maxi Rodrigues thanks to a clever back-heel by Fernando Torres.
It was a very welcome 3 points in which we kept a clean sheet and despite lacking quality at times,we managed to gain 3 precious points to move us up to joint tenth in the table and out of the relegation-zone at last.
Hodgson said: “If we had come into this game in a different position in the league table and with a few wins behind us, I think we would have settled down and been a bit more relaxed. As it is we are affected by the table and the fact we have started so badly.”

He added: “We have been rightly criticised for starting so badly and when that happens one of the things that goes out of the window is composure and confidence.
“I have been as devastated as everyone has by the lack of results but I have never stopped believing that work would pay dividends. It is just a question of timescales. I am still not convinced it is going to pay dividends in a short timescale, it is going to be a longer job.
“It is still too early to be too optimistic but at least it is a step in the right direction.
“The players now know they have got the ability to dig in, even in games like this, which is a good thing to know. It is nice to see a little bit of light at the end of the tunnel.”
I think we need a controlling midfielder at the heart of the Liverpool team.
Stevie G is a great player, Meirles is also a good aquisition butwe really need a top-quality, holding midfielder who will take the ball from Reina or the back-four and turn it into a defence-splitting pass.
Still, a win is a win, onwards and upwards.
