It was a disgraceful performance in my book. My last 7 / 8 days had been excellent up till then. We beat Spurs with a performance that centered a lot on effort. Barca then showed everyone how it's done with a performance that was again built on a huge amount of effort and intensity. I then saw Wales repeat the same thing and demolished England in the 6 Nations rugby. Truly fantastic performance where everyone gave 100% and more.
Then I saw Liverpool...........................
No effort, didn't press the ball, looked like they had a heavy night beforehand and quite honestly looked like they didn't want to be there.
Gerrard was awful in a non existent midfield. I do not blame Allen for it all, Gerrard was honestly pants and needs a kick up the whatsits. Glen Johnson looked like he was playing in high heels, Skrtel and Agger were all over the place and the forward line might as well have stayed at home.
I felt terrible for those that traveled down there to witness was quite honestly the most disgraceful Liverpool performance I have ever seen. Not fit to wear the shirt. I am still fuming. Yet another opportunity missed.
Quite honestly if I were Rodgers I would give them a beasting like no other in training followed by a session down the academy where these so called top pros would be made to clean the boots of players that want to put some effort in. They can then go and clean Anfield and Melwood before some kind of video session that included Saturdays game and a reminder of what it means to wear that red shirt.
Can you tell I'm effin fuming? This rant is NOT over
Colyn...as u say we as a team just didnt turn up to play. Sometimes if u playing and on u team u have one maybe two guys just massively off form u can ,dependent on how well u opposition playing carry them and get a result but if u have three guys having a bad day imo and experience its unlikely u going to get a result that day. However when somehow half the team just hasnt shown up to play u know all u can hope for is some damage limitation. Unfortunately that was the situation we found ourselves in at Southampton but the worst of it was it might have been bearable if Southampton had a few lads having a bad day too but they didnt they all came and put in 100% max effort and played us off the park..imo the only redeeming factor was that we didnt get stuffed 6 or 7.1 by a on the day superb team.
Allen Skrtel Glenda Agger Sturridge all were shocking looked inept seen better pub league players week in week out...I think the owners need to step in here and take a more direct line and tell Brenda displays like this will not be tolerated and there must not be another show the like of this and hes as a result on probation along with those players who were clearly culpable of a definite lack of effort and frankly as u say were a feckin disgrace to the shirt !

Colin / Armchair Good posts guys.
I'm still fuming over this result. I'd add Gerrard and Lucas to your list Colin.
Have a look at the third goal as a prime example. Gerrard I think loses the ball in their half and then proveeds to walk back. The rest of the midfield aren't home. Southampton breeze past Lucas who looks like a f**t in a wind tunnel. Our back 4 are on our 18 yard line and all over the place. They walk it in. That is completely unacceptable from Gerrard and Lucas and God only knows what the back 4 were doing.
That I'm afraid is a prime example of being lazy and not giving 5 monkeys. If that's all it takes to be a pro footballer then every single one of us then could do it and we'd be better because we'd put a bit more effort in. I bet they didn't even need a shower after that
Amusing. We have been playing the best football seen at Anfield for arguably a couple of decades, we have put on a pretty decent run with the goals scored column very high, the goals against column very low, we play one game and the pitchforks and torches are out again!
One admittedly shocking bad game, a dodgy team selection and its all disaster speak again. At least 'Rodgers out' has been replaced with 'Rodgers on probation'.
Do you expect us to win every game? Do you not think that we are a work in progress and we stumble, even when expected not too? The road is rocky lads, so put it back in your pants!
Colyn I couldn't agree with you more.. these so called stars need to show some humility.. ie clean the boots of the youngsters and mop the floors of the changing areas.. clearly that's all they're good for atm.. it annoys me.. these players get more money in wages than a person does in a month's work. They clearly don't appreciate that fact..
They should play their guts out each and every game.. I too feel sorry for those that spent good money to go see our team play only to be given a shambles.. if that were a theatre performance you'd be entitled to a refund if the show was so bad.. I too hope FSG give Rodgers a bollocking cos he needs it.. We had a golden opportunity to go 4th in the EPL.. that would've been great, and then our lads would have inspiration to keep pushing.. I think many of our first team need to be sold in the summer.. they just aren't pulling their weight for the club yet they're happy to accept their wages for a shockingly bad performance.
