Isn't the end of that a slight contradiction? I mean if Zenit are nobody’s mugs, which I agree with, and we beat them 3-1, I'm not sure we could of made many if any Big Mistakes.
The other point, and forgive me if I'm barking up the wrong tree here, but from what you posted I read it was a great job by the lads, but not the manager, or maybe a great job despite the manager. I'm just curious as I know you've made up your mind on BR, although would like to be proven wrong, but if it’s his fault when a result goes against us, but the lads credit when the result goes for us, at what point if any can we give any credit to the gaffer?
Good point Dave, you might be interested to take a look at the "Different take on Zenit games" thread to widen the discussion a bit. My point there, and here, is that for me the most damning statistic for LFC is a failure to score more from the record chances we´ve created. Do that, and no-one would care too hoots about substitutions, gaffs, formations, selections etc etc. Cure that one fault and we´d still be in the FA cup and fourth or better in the league. See the other thread for reasons.
