"we should've start with strong midfield+carra instead of strong forward line to dictate our game, i think for that game, Lucas for Borini and Carra for Coates was much better,selection of inexperienced kids cost us. and don't forget Jones huge mistake,it's not his first time,we need a good keeper+LB asap"

"Its not Allens fault but he is just too flimsy for these sort of games. He just bounces off oponents. He is not big enough to win headers, and he gets shoved off the ball. I am afraid all BR's signings are the same lightweight players who will not survive in th PL.- I REALLY HOPE I AM WRONG!!! "

"Apart from Jones & Robinson all the other players regularly play in the starting 11 for Premiership matches. It was not a LFC B or youth team. They are not bad players so for them to lose without passion to Oldham (19th of 3rd Division) shows how much we have fallen with BR who have no excuse losing against inferior players"

"Joe Allen, is single handedly the worst midfielder we have, Rodgers should be shot for giving him so many chances, he already proved many times this season he is boring, ordinary and contributes nothing to the team.

"Some terrible comments here directed at Allen. How many times have we gone down this route of abusing our own players? For the "best fans in the world" you should be ashamed of yourselves especially "wmraker" and "The Irish Robbie Fowler". The way I see it, if Alonso or anyone doesn't see the same Anfield that it once was its your own damn fault for being so horrible."

"In my humble opinion Joe Allen hasn't been worth his 15 million pound tag since he came here, nor has Henderson, how long before Boroni starts to play and Downing looks like he's going to cry when a defender gets within a couple of yards of him. Liverpool also need cover at left back because Robinson is not good enough,if Johnson or Enrique had been fit we wouldn't have lost the game"

"read from some posters that the absence of a true alternative to Lucas could cost us dear, and so it was. Joe Allen is grey area, he can't afford to hold the midfield and made the opportune exceptions he's innocuous upfront, Hendo is a box to box midifielder. We need a backup for Lucas, but I believe we will be obliged to wait for the summer..."

"To be honest chaps, I thought Allen played ok. There was unbalance in the side that was plain to see by anyone. Keep off Allen's back please. There was a load of ifs and buts, such as had the players not been oide from Hendo's free kick we may have won etc etc. Stop dwelling on it. Lets look to Wednesday and hope we can put things right."
