On paper Liverpool should win this what with the quality ion their line-up. Yet Liverpool, this season have looked at times like they are flying then they come back down to earth with the kind of result they had at Southampton and West Brom before that. Progress is like that sometimes. Also Villa won at Anfield and are fighting for the PL lives. However, if Liverpool give it 110% they should prevail otherwise a draw or defeat is a more likely result. 3-1 Liverpool my prediction.
reina is bad change or sell him
..... And I don't think Rodgers can do that. As "Neville" #193 wrote: He just makes excuses week after week.
A work colleague remarked that if we carry on churning out **** results like this, our star players - Gerrard, Suarez - will soon get itchy feet. I think he's right. WE DESPERATELY NEED TO TURN THIS INDIFFERENT SPELL AROUND.
I was shocked by this result especially when you look at the team sheets and Liverpools quality players. It would be interesting to know where the Reds would be right now in the table if Kenny wasn't given the premature sack? But Rogers needs time to work with the team and complete his work which like anything wont be without the occasional setback. I did though feel some of his pre match comments could have been more positive and believing when he said that it would be a close match and praised the Villa manager and his team. Perhaps Brendan should have praised the Villa manager but concluded something like, 'However I am confident about my teams quality and the advantage we have playing at home at Anfield.' I just worried that Rogers didn't do enough in the pre match build up to give his team the best vision and belief going into the match.
When rodgers used that envelope trick, i am sure the envelopes all had his name in them because he has let us down with all th erubbish players he has bought none have done anything positive for us. playing downing at left back, keeping suso and wisdom on the bench, we need quality players in to improve the squad but Brendo is looking at average players in january, sturridge and Ince , cmon sturridge can't get into Chelsea squad and ince would be another borini moment, our scouts are no good either if these are players we are getting. Brendon said we would fall in love with Allen & Borini, i can't see that happening. We where around eighth position with Kenny last season, Allen was supposed to be like a spanish type player i cannot see where Brendo saw that comparison. I have lost faith in him already. i would rather we played like Villa and get the 3pts than dominating play and come away with nothing. we need quality players not average let sturridge stay at Chelsea and find someone like Ba, Michu or Benteke. Rodgers if you can't then you r not what we need if you cannot bring in quality let us find someone who can without making excuses every week.
Roy Hodgson looks good now !!!!!!! HOLTENDER
Hmmm. That Roy Evans. Only second or third in the league. Let's humiliate him by having him make the tea for the frenchman. that should bring back the glory days. Let's spend some more money on players that the next manager doesn't want. And now the only man from Valencia who doesn't know how to smile. let's give him even more money. After all "he won the euro cup" [didn't stevie g play a small part?] Oh dear, now we are lower down the table than we were with roy evans. tell you what - we'll go backwards and spend 35m on a player and then not give him the service that his particular talents require. Better get shot of him then and play with one striker and hope he doesn't get injured or suspended. That man knows his onions - we'll give him to WBA. What on earth are they doing? Maybe they should put Paul Merton in charge. He has a good brain and a sense of humour - couldn't do worse. How about some primary school kids to liven up the directors' meetings. I despaIr. Robbie said he would jog back from singapore to be in the squad. How many of the current squad feel like that? Stevie and Jamie and the tea lady - don't know any more.
aiming for a possible top two? the man should keep quiet and concentrate on keeping his job.
everyone criticizes man united for poor defending, liverpool's defense is #$%$ full stop
12th in the league, 7 pts above relegation., its not hard to predict this kind of outcome, judging by our very 1st game this season against wba.
We are so negative in midfield with Joe allen the main culprit. We have no cutting edge and will always have no chance against a team like Villa who were well prepped for the game. They have a power house striker and a young, fast and positive midfield. Why are we continually playing this system WHICH is not proven, it only proves at the moment that it DOESN'T work, yes we dominate possession regular but what do we gain from it. I still hope Brendan will turn us around, but at the moment is he a clever manager who needs another midfielder and a striker to put us right or is he just a power mad clown who really believes what hes doing is right whilst all the stats say he actually is not right. By the way Brendan get rid of Allen, he would not have got in Swansea's team this season- FACT.
Lets talk da truth always games and lucky are going the same, for more that twelve games played by LFC,,,,,,,,,, while leinar is in, LFC going to lose.
dont worry...they have Norman Wisdom as a substitute....he might play next week.
Rodgers is a great improvment on Kenny .... LFC is flying and looking like a small club a.. Utd fans dream
Everton used to be a big club in English football too!
What happened guys, you were just starting to make progress :( . Where were Villa before this, about 16th?
lets be real we should be scoring goals from m/field not just up front,everybody goes on about the fact we only have one forward,having 29 goal attempts and only 8 on target is not good enough the midfield have to bare the blame for this we need a lampard plain and simple
I couldn't believe BR's midweek comments about finishing 2nd this season. Why put your head on the block. I honestly can't see Liverpool finishing in the top half of the table. Nightmare result today.
May be we can still cnontinue to compare ourselves with United since we aonly 20 points behind them

Stunning display of forward power play by the young Belgian striker. Glorious outing for him and his side.
