    Negative Tactics!

    Couldn't DISAGREE more Arnold. Bloody hell, someone's mighty peeved and just wants to hang it on someone.

    How can you say we were negative when Reina barely touched the ball in the first half and for a large part of the second? How can you say we were negative when we peppered their end with chances, hit the frame of their goal 3-4 times, just lacked the clinical finish?

    I think our luck finally ran out yesterday, and will take my hat off to Spurs for making the most of their limited chances (in comparison to ours I mean). You just can't argue with the result, and blaming Rafa or the players on this occasion I think is just plain daft. I took alot of encouragement from the performance yesterday, and with a Torres in there we probably might have stitched it up by halftime.

    Like the Chavs last week, we were going to lose eventually and take the resulting p1sstaking from all those twits who were DYING for the chance to rub it into us. We could well be better for it now that undefeated tag has been shed. Who cares if it was a resurgent Spurs that did it? I'd prefer that than the effing Mancs, that's for sure.

    Just suck in the result and back the team FFS, they are playing the best brand of football I've seen from them in years.

    • The best football youve seen us play in years ? How many years have u been supporting the team...Ive been a supporter for over fifty years and can honestly say this is the most boring stuff Ive ever seen served up by Liverpool FC thanks to the dull defensive tactics of Benitez. Wake-UP !!! Just about anybody could do a better job with this current squad than Benitez.

      • At last someone share the same opinion as me but why it took so long to notice that Rafa is not the one to help us deliver the title?? In fact, there are so many fellow fans out there still living in dreamland, hoping for the title? We are second on the table YES, but it's only 11 games in the season...
        And regarding the quote: "The best football youve seen us play in years ?:...He must have supported Liverpool since 2004...

      • Try a bit of perspective Colin. I've been supporting LFC since the late seventies since you ask, but THIS season, what I've seen from the team is better than anything I've seen from them this millennium at least. That's 'years' isn't it?

        I cannot believe people are slating Rafa for defensive tactics in yesterday's game. There wouldn't be a peep out of any of these people if one of those shots hitting the woodwork found the net. It's just convenient to make Rafa the scapegoat when the players did everything they could but find the net.
