against an 'average' Man U side who were there for the taking.
Very disappointed with the pretty average midtable football your players served up too, even Bradford City would have given a good account of themselves than crap I watched from your lot today..
When did Arsenal last "take" United then Slayer? Last season you did score two goals at OT, it is true. They scored how many? I think Liverpool put up a better fight this afternoon than Arsenal generally do there.
Still you can take City this afternoon. Oops, 0-2 at halftime.
They're the worse MU team I've seen.. Yes they were there for the taking and we rolled over. We should've gone at them from the kick off and harried and got in amongst them.. forcing them to make errors and not given them time on the ball..
In fact thats how we should play.. keep hold of the ball and keep passing it.

I'm not sure how they can be the worst MU team you've seen when they've only lost 3 times in the league this season. I hate to say it but there is a reason they are 7 points clear at the top of the table and we're in 8th. The simple fact is they play better than us on a consistent basis.
It wasn't offside, watch the replay, not a photo that tells the story you want to hear!
Look here, from the replay, Evra is quite clearly in front when it came off his head, Vidic then ran onto it.
Another one bites the dust!
I mean this, Ralf.
Look away now if you don't want to hear the truth from a proper football man who knows his stuff.
Hansen on MOTD: "Liverpool were nothing short of abysmal in the 1st half, Suarez was very poor too and wasn't in the game. But they got better in the second half."
Alan Hansen echoing my exact sentiment.
You don't play as poor as Liverpool played in the first period and expect to win a big match. You have to give it all you've got from the off in order to have a reasonable chance of winning away from home.
"what does that make everyone else?"
Man City knocked out of Europe at the first attempt.
Chelsea failed at the first attempt in Europe.
Arsenal beaten at home by a mid-table Schalke side.
No wonder an average Man U side are clear favourites for the title, and this is NOT Barcelona
"We tried, but when you've 11 v 12 it's hardly a fair game is it?"
You had 12 against our 11, so it's us that should be calling it unfair!
Webb went out of his way not to appear biased towards United, and in doing so quite clearly favoured Liverpool.
Had it been any other ref, in any other situation, you would have finished the game with NINE men.
Where else have you ever seen a rugby tackle not even awarded a yellow card?
Or an attacking team, with a man down injured, refusing to kick the ball out of play, then allowed to carry on until they lose possession before blowing the whistle?
I wasn't a huge fan of VDS. I remember him making some bad mistakes, and with fifteen years more experience. I'd rather United had VDS in goal when they played us than de Gea.
As Ron suggests, Scheichel is surely the standard for United keepers.
Lol. Don't look at a photo that tells you what you want to hear. Here's a photo that proves what I'm saying.
If the question was "is vidic in front of Evra, or vice versa" then I can't tell, either from the Daily Mail pic, or your pic which is so fuzzy I can't even make out the ball, or from the replay. However, I believe the offside rule is whether vidic is in front of the ball when played by Evra, and the DM pic looks pretty convincing on this point.
