In truth, much of what you're suggesting is a coaching issue. The opposition looked a well-coached side with a clear plan across the 90. The second half was testament to this. What's also true is that this set of footballers are now onto a third manager this season; it's little wonder that a more settled better coached opponent will look in better shape at this stage. As the match wore on, this became more obvious.This is a point I hate to see
No that Liverpool team wouldn't beat others in the league whatsoever. Given their cm is 21 and nowhere near the first team is not a testimony on his quality but how much he lacks.
The majority of their young players on the pitch yesterday will be playing lower league football in the next 3-4 years (age depending).
They beat us because of how badly we played. Because of how badly those two in the middle were , of how isolated our attack was. They beat us because we didn't have a midfield to pass to, to win the ball back with and get the ball to our attackers.
We lost because our defenders panicked every single time they couldn't see a blue shirt in front of them and passed it around inviting pressure. When the CMS did get the ball they gave it back to them repeating the cycle.
That Liverpool team isn't the second coming of fergies super team. Another team yesterday would win comfortably.
We lost because of how badly some of those on the pitch were. Both as footballers and tactically. The kopite kids weren't technically better , they simply had no pressure at all on them. They had all the time in the world to play the ball and acres of space everytime they did. Compared to us who were down to 9 men effectively.
