webb just plain hates Liverpool
First hello everyone Spurs played strong defense and disruptive play, they also figured out most of Liverpool goals come from flank crosses or flank penetration and closed them tight. For Liverpool to respond to this they need to go thru the middle, but the best players in that department Merlis and Gerard are injured, stuff started happening only when Shelvy came on, did OK but still young. Rodriguez and Kyut move and work a lot but in a game like this we need players who can play in tight space and are good ball receivers. Carroll has a great future but in the present I can't help but fell he disrupts our game, next year maybe he should play off the bench and commit to developing more.
yeah whatever make you sleep, but that even so Liverpool doesn't even look like they gonna get an equalizer great day for a United nothing is better :D
What does this game have to do with united? Will you lot always be bitter?
Although we did not win, we played hard I would have liked to see a little more attacking and spirit going for the ball. It seemed like we just waited for the ball to come to our feet. The other team had great defense a lot faster then we are use to. we will learn from this loss. I am not disappointed. YNWA!
shit,didn`t see this happen:-(
I guess the Liverpool players really do not want to play in Europa next season. It's evident this season, which explains our early dismissal from Europa, we have no motivation for that kind of league. Really terrible performance all around. When Carroll is on the pitch, the fullbacks hoof it towards him. It's not his fault, just something Kenny needs to address the squad. We did not see the pass-and-move football that we saw for the past 8 games. This game is evidence that we need width, a new central midfielder, and defenders. Oh, and Howard Webb is a DISGRACE!
Meireles factor lost us the game.. Don't blame Webb.. his philosophy of supporting united(by spoiling lfc games) will never change.
Poor performance from lfc. Just hoping Birmingham can beat Tottenham in the last round.
liverpool never looked like they were going to score, dawson and king were great for spurs and even though it wasnt a penalty spurs fully deserve the win.
I suppose no European football might do Liverpool some good. In Sir Alex I Trust, United We Stand!
Actually it's better.. if we don't qualify for the EL, no shitty thursdays.. they spoil the weekend games.
we need wingers in games like this we had Carroll in the box yet nobody was there to deliver crosses
Liverpool didn`t deserved to win today. Liverpool did not play near as good football as they have done in recent fighting. maybe it could be good for liverpool not beeing in Europe next season. Only focus on the league, the title they have been waiting for in ages.
Ledley King would be one of the best defenders in the league if he wasn't so injury prone.
I think Andy Carroll is a potentially good striker. However, he's a liability for the team right now. And Raul Meireles being unavailable didn't help matters either, because Lucas and Spearing are not what you would usually call "creative midfielders". Maxi and Kuyt are substitute-quality at best for the wide positions. If Liverpool are gonna keep starting Carroll, they need 2 quality wingers(better than Young and Downing) for a 4-4-2. However, if they decide to put priority on the successful "pass-n-move" tactic, they need another quality CF(instead of Carroll) and a WF for a 4-3-3. Logic says the first option is probably cheaper, but the second option just might be the one that lands them in a serious title fight next season. P.S. - Yes. Chelsea overpaid for Torres, and Liverpool overpaid for Carroll.
Have patience! Carroll was not overpaid. Carroll is young and do have better skills than Rooney when Unitede bought him from Everton! He will be the next BIG attacer in England (both in Liverpool and the national team). Liverpool must buy a new winger who can bring him good balls in the box. He will be the leagues topscorer next season (and Suarez will be the player with most assist)
He actually was overpaid. A panic-buy to Torres' transfer request. Other than the City game, he's had almost no positive impact to the team-play so far. He lacks mobility, the one thing needed by every potentially-great striker these days. And so far, he's not as dominant in the air as people hype him up to be. He didn't terrorize Arsenal defenders, and he certainly didn't terrorize Spurs yesterday. BTW, Rooney was already making waves in the EPL from the age of 16, and he was improving at an alarming rate. He wasn't given the nickname "Roo-naldo" for nothing, you know. However, paying £35m for a stockier version of Peter Crouch is not good business.
@Zico "Carroll is young and do have better skills than Rooney when Unitede bought him from Everton!" Obvioulsy know little about football. I can't even believe someone said this. Was you watching football back then? He was 16! Scored a hat trick on his debut for us in the Champions League.
That wasn't a pen but spurs deserved the win
