Friends Of Liverpool

Brendan Rodgers, Lucas Leiva and Steven Gerrard have all called on the fans to get Liverpool past Zenith St Petersburg in the Europa League on Thursday night.

Brendan Rodgers commented:

“The fans will be vital on Thursday night – as they always are in every game. But we’ll need them even more. I’m sure we’ll get the type of backing that can take us to victory.”

“The important factor is not getting an early goal, it’s about getting the first goal. If we get the first goal, it will set us up. We’d love to get through.”

While I fully agree that Liverpool’s first-team need all the support they can get from the fans on what should be a great night’s football, I don’t think the Manager or any of the players should be calling on the crowd to see them overcome a 2-0 deficit against Zenith.

The Manager should have a tactical plan already laid-out for his team on how to set-up defensively and how to score the three goals Liverpool will need, minimum to win this tie.

We will support you and the team as always Brendan Rodgers, but don’t depend on the Anfield roar to spur you on to victory.

Win the game on its merits in your own right and then you will hear the crowd in full voice.

Liverpool 5-0 Swansea
