      Terrible. Utterly terrible. The questions that need asked are:

      When is Downing going to start making a meaningful contribution that can justify his price tag?

      What is Andy Carroll doing? Does he have the commitment?

      Why is there such a lack of basic ideas when it comes to attacking?

      Should we be worried about the surprising lack of real fight shown in such a big match like this? Does this collection of players have the fighting spirit?

      Just got in, saw the scoreline.

      Won't bother watching the 90 minutes later.

      Ah well, hardest game of the season technically over with.

      Hopefully we've learnt something for when we visit next week.

      Full time.

      All could have been so different if Downing had put away that chance.

      You can't give quality teams a soft 2-0 lead away from home that they can just get 11 men behind the ball.

      Adam, Kuyt very poor first half.  Carroll given nothing.  Penalty wasn't a pen.  Downing's never going to be good enough.

      Same result as last season but a completely different game.

      Really disappointing performance tonight. The team just felt wrong from the beginning. Yes it was typical in that we struggled to finish chances. But that was the least of our problems. Reina was shaky, the midfield was awful in defense, they struggled to support Carroll, they gave away possession, they looked out of sorts. Just an all-around bad day for LFC.

      Are you crazy? He couldnt have been more comfortable.
      Yaya Toure for me, he bossed midfield and went well into attack

      Gerrard is 5 minutes ahead from anyone in the team

      How the f**k did we lose that never mind lose 3-0 city were awful.

      Thought Downing Kuyt and Adam were very poor. We need a striker saying that the service especially crossing was f**king abysmal

      City were sh*te and still thumped us....worrying how toothless we are....pepe had a nightmare for the first, the second was terrible defending and the 3rd was never a pen......we didn't create f**k all

      Downing is sh*te, how can a winger slow down the play so much and then pass it backwards all the time?

      We need an out and out striker, urgently!
      Really thought we could do this. Gutted!

      That was a Dick Turpin 3-0.  Only got ourselves to blame for defensive mistakes and creating next to f**k all chances.

      You just can't start with the likes of Adam and Kuyt when Gerrard, Bellamy and Maxi are available on the bench.

      Although I am impressed with the amount of possession we had away to the strongest team in the league, just a shame we couldn't do anything with it.

      Well, I don't know what to say at the moment. On the positive side, at least this puts pressure on United. If you made me choose between City or United, I'd have to say City.

      Very disappointing from us.

      Yes, possession is one thing - but creating and scoring is another.

      I think we had a basic game plan of crossing it into Carroll, every opportunity possible. Crosses weren't good enough, along with Kompany and Toure dominating Carroll aerially, didn't bold well.
