Friends Of Liverpool

Liverpool Fc were guilty of poor selection and miss-management by Manager Brendan Rodgers on Saturday against Aston Villa at Anfield.

Brendan Rodgers, in his infinite wisdom, decided to drop Lucas and played Steven Gerrard in the DM role on his own.

It failed miserably, Gerrard was never and will never be solely a defensive midfielder, he is a forward-thinking and playing midfielder.

In the first-half with Coutinho, Henderson and Sterling playing further forward without much of the ball, Liverpool were over-ran and the goals soon followed with Weismann and Benteke both on the score-sheet.

Stevie G was all on his own and all at Sea in that area unsure of his role and he and the team suffered because of it.

Luckily Liverpool got a goal back before half-time from Sturridge.

With the introduction of Lucas for Coutinho in the second-half things began to improve for Liverpool and Suarez won a penalty kick which was duly dispatched by Gerrard on 52 mins to bring it to 2-2.

And so it ended, Liverpool drew after conceding 2 goals yet again.

I wonder could Steve Clarke be persuaded to rejoin LFC as a defensive coach as Colin Pascoe, Mike Marsh and BR don’t have a clue how to keep a clean sheet.
