  1. What is going on we were playing at Anfield for­ goodness sake and Roy Rodgers announces on TV that the­ best team won. Well the manager and the players will­ cry all the way to the bank.. I have seen many teams­ come to Anfield and have been played off the park and­ we have lost which can happen, but to say that Swansea­ is a better team than Liverpool shows how submissive­ the manager and his team can be and that has to be­ rectified and quickly. I was not convinced on­ Kenny's appointment but I saw a united effort and­ he and Clarke played some of the best football we have­ seen at Anfield for years. they definitely deserved­ more time. The American owners cannot possibly­ understand about our sport and or about Liverpool­ football club. The only way they can hope to succeed­ is by getting their cheque book out for the next three­ years. "And by the way give us a song before you­ go Roy".

  2. Any one who still thinks Liverpool do not have­ insurmmountable problems to overcome dfinitely needs to­ see a brain surgeon right now without any delay. This­ club is not in any way on the way up in my own opinion.­ In fairness, I am not blaming Rodgers for any of these­ problems and neither should anyone in my view. He­ inheritted perhaps what was essentially the worst­ Liverpool team in living memory and his cause was not­ helped when the Board allowed all the strikers to­ leave without any replacements. If it does not happen­ this year, should things continue to deteriorate, I­ give this club another one or two more seasons before­ it starts playing in the Championship unless the­ American owners wake up to the truth starring them in­ the face. Football or soccer cannot be run like their­ so-called American football and the earlier they wake­ up to that fact the better it will be for Liverpool and­ us the supporters. The Americans have been largely­ responsible for Liverpool's problems, although I­ must admit that Kenny Dalglish also contributed in no­ small measure by signing Championship players like­ Carroll, Downing, Henderson, Adam etc at such crazy­ prices. Given the time, I can see Rodgers succeeding­ where Dalglish failed miserably. But first, he must be­ given funds to sign better players and not being asked­ to manage with below average players he has now.

  3. I see the new deluded Messiah is blaming it all on J­ Cole, what a #$%$ it was His team of out of position­ misfits playing an unsuitable system, Berk.

    From Stalins Ghost, on Thu 1 Nov 15:15
  4. Well, it looks as though Liverpool have relegation­ fight on their hands!

  8. who cares about this game

    From The Football Guru, on Thu 1 Nov 4:54
  9. Always a 2 man team,Torres and Gerrard then,it's­ Suarez and Gerrard now. And mind you Gerrard is­ gradually fading away,I bet in time it will be Allen­ and Sterling... Can't stop laughing.. Y.N.W.A (­ You'll Never Win Again ).

    From Sydney Smith, on Thu 1 Nov 1:44
  10. 134... "Jealous"? My #$%$. Your comments typify the­ pungent smell of delusion & denial of hypocrites who if­ they can't latch on to the old "injustices" syndrome, ­ revert back to that old stalwart, "our glorious­ history", blah, blah, blah. Tune into Babe-Station­ fella...might relieve the frustration & calm u down. ­ Nite-nite.

    From Nigel, on Thu 1 Nov 0:28
  11. liverpool have still got some dead wood , i really cant­ see what Rodgers see in shelvey and downing , these two­ have took over from Ngog an Babel,lets face it downing­ is supposed to be an international, his passing is­ woeful,his finishing is worse.he'll never make it­ at liverpool,same goes for shelvey.,,get rid..RED77

  12. Sack Brendon Rogers immediately to save Liverpool FC­ from relegation! ..................................NO­ KEEP HIM GOING A GOOD JOB

    From C, on Wed 31 Oct 23:52
  13. Yawn, these comments about how many tropheys the pool­ have won in the past reminds me of a joke. How many­ Liverpudlians does it take to change a light bulb? ­ None. They would sooner sit in the dark and talk about­ the old one.

    From Davey H, on Wed 31 Oct 23:37
  14. Comment hidden due to its low rating. Show

    Funny how most comments here are from fans of other­ teams putting the boot in. Jealous much? Liverpool have­ won more trophies than the vast majority of other clubs­ combined. OK, we're going through a transitional­ period, but with a young manager, a young squad,­ (hopefully) a redeveloped stadium and a few bob to­ spend on players, we'll be back challenging for­ major trophies in the near future. Well done Swansea­ tonight, a team brought to where they are by Brendan­ Rodgers. I'd still rather be a Liverpool fan going­ forward.

    From Barry, on Wed 31 Oct 23:28
  15. SO..."Starfish" & Rodgers...WHAT­ "injustices" issues & bitter comments can­ you allude to tonight? NONE...well & truly beaten,­ a wake-up call which will hopefully put an end to this­ persisent, bleating, deluded dross you have been­ spewing out in recent weeks. Dee-jays in Southport­ be warned...Stevie's scowling & making a­ complete douche of himself lately. Someone is gonna­ cop for it.

  16. Sack Brendon Rogers immediately to save Liverpool FC­ from relegation!

    From Tom, on Wed 31 Oct 22:52
  17. in the papers tomorrow .....S. Gerrard. says swansea­ play like everton & stoke

    From C, on Wed 31 Oct 22:45
  18. As usual, all their efforts used up against Everton.­ Couldn't even do them. Already hearing, "Bring­ back Kenny" he wont save you from the­ overspending, trying to keep up with the money clubs!­ Mid table club, just below Blue half. LMFHO

    From Craig blue, on Wed 31 Oct 22:42
  19. don't say that liverpool were bad.Look at the­ lineup.how is henderson defending!??clearly rodgers is­ focusing on the league by resting players for the­ newcastle united match.What KD didn't understand is­ that the premiere league should always come first.Not­ to mention the fact that swansea played really well.

    From Adam, on Wed 31 Oct 22:39
  20. What a shower of total #$%$s liverpool just like your­ #$%$ of a manager rodgers why don't you do us all a­ favour and #$%$ off back to ireland.
