    Reading V LFC aftermath !!

    Don't have the match stats in front of me, but think I remember we got 12 shots on target that required a save or block. I remember one Gerrard shot being blocked, and of course Suarez had one headed off the line, so that leaves 10. I do agree there were a few that were not the strongest of efforts, but most I think were respectable, and some that did require the very best from the keeper. Now that was just what was on target, with Suarez hitting the post on the free kick, and Coutinho just missing by a foot or so, so seems like a fairly offensive effort to me.

    At the very least, while I'd say there were 3 or 4 efforts that required a world class effort to prevent goals, some might say on the other shots the quality was not there. I'd not agree with that conclusion, however surely if one did, it would be something down to the players and not the coach, the tactics, or even the attitude if they just did not execute the final ball, despite getting everything else right.
