I hear both of you loud and clear, and am in complete agreement.
I knew the 'second string' excuse would get pedalled. Fact is, that scoreline flattered us. The lads out there just didn't seem to give a toss, with the possible exception of Carroll.
What I find hard to believe is the sheer blind belief of many LFC fans that it'll be alright next season under Kenny. Whatevidence can they possibly base that on? His signings? His tactics? His ability to fire the lads up???
Noone out there tonight looked like they gave a damn. Whose fault is that? The managers surely.
We are a mid-table team, playing like relegation battlers for MORE THAN half the league season now. After the money that's been spent on this squad, there is only one word for that - embarrassing.
That's why we're a laughing stock right now.
That's why most neutrals won't want to see us lift the FA Cup, because we're just league pretenders.
I'd take a respectable top 3 finish & CL football next season over two domestic cups and mid table mediocrity. Anyone can win a cup or two. The league table never lies though, that's the true measure of where we are I think....
Abu I couldn't agree with you more..
What basis have these sheep of KD's got to assume he'll make it all ok again?
Why not base it on what he's done of late and not what he did 20 odd yrs ago...
Back then he was a god.. and we won everything.. The KD we have now is one thats been out of the game in terms of management. He managed Newcastle and he was poor there.. So we rehire him and he's been poor here.. ok so we won a CC against a team whose in a league lower. Our league position doesn't lie..
If he stays as manager I'd be very suprised if we improve. More likely to be more of the same.
Funny that "anyone can win a cup" and yet over the last 23 years 18 of them have been won by the same 4 teams!
If it was so easy surely there would be a greater variety? or are the likes of everton,villa,stoke,all concentrating on getting into the top 4?
I would not agree with you more abu, those lads just did not give a hoot. But can anyone really blame them? To all the players with the possible exception of Carroll, Skrtl and the blue eyed boy Henderson, being selected yesterday meant just one thing ...... you are not playing on Saturday. Maxi could have scored a treble and he would not have had a sniff, Doni could have saved 3 penalties and he would not have had a chance in hell of starting, not that I am faulting Doni in any way. My point is that Kenny when he selected that team, he might as well have said to them "lads you are playing coz we want the real team to be fresh and rested on Saturday", if that is not bad management, then I dont know what is. The team was set and sent out with a mentality to fail and they did.

Mel how can you say that? we don't have 11 players sitting on the bench ready to play in the FA. So I can imagine the team talk would have been that there are places available for those that earn them.
Yes the team played poorly but don't forget this was a team put together and have not played together to gel. On the performance of players have to say that Downing was crap. Carroll played well, Stirling is defo for the future.
It is not a managers fault when he allows the players not getting regular football to play and show him what is missing and they decide to stay and have a cup of tea instead. I can recall posts about Benitez when ever he put out a second choice team saying the same thing, yes we are going through a bad spell but I for one am convinced that it will come good next season and also under no illusion that if KD does not perform then FSG will terminate his contract.
Until such time let us bide our time and see what happens, after all a manager we all said was useless is NOW England manager.
