      What the f**k.

      Poor poor performance. Again. We took the lead, undeservingly, and then blew it at the last moment.

      For the whole game we've been on the backfoot, it's really heartbreaking to watch us play we've been shambolic.

      Special praise to Dossena who gets a lot of stick from us reds, he had a decent steady game tonight with out setting the world on the fire but he was far from poor in my opinion which is a good sign from a player who is not getting very much game time at all.


      Yeah, thought he did well

      Don't blame Darby for that. You'll never see him do it again, that's for sure!

      Will post in detail later but for me at least there were a lot more positives than negatives.

      Another match, another defensive error.

      We weren't bad tonight, deserved at least a draw if not more.

      Didn't go out they way we wanted, roll on this weekend when we piss all over Arsenal and climb the Premiership table.

      We didn't deserve that result. Young Darby's inexperience cost us but you know what - we looked way better tonight than we have of late, in my opinion.

      Full time, real kick in the teeth that :(

      Especially a shame for Darby, who was relatively ok bar 1/2 mess ups, but still looks like he could be a devent back up for Johnson

      On the positive side...

      Some phenomenal balls floating in tonight, Torres really livened up the game when he came on, really looked class
      Pacheco looked good as well, much preferred to Voronin :), looks deserved of more games
      Masch did well, and a solid debut for Aqui, really looked like he is promising
      Kuyt was poor :/

      Kuyt to be benched next game, Pacheco on the bench, Aqui maybe start?  Torres should be a definite after that, class, Benny also looked good.

      Overall a very pleasing performance, excellent.

      Thought he was top 3, for us. Pretty good game for Doss.

      As for the lads, well what can you say? We sit back, we don' win. We go for it, we don't win.

      I'm encouraged by what I've seen to be honest, its a big step up from the Blackburn game in my opinion.

      lets look at the positives of today's game....

      Cavalieri proved to be an able deputy to Pepe, Dossena put in a shift and did better than most who have played wide left this season! Aquilani looked decent and will benefit from the game time! Gerrard looked better for the game time too and Nando will be better for the run out! He looked sharp too, as did Dani Pacheco when he came on!

      Although the result didnt go our way, there were positives to take out of the game!

      Surprise performancec of the night. Played very very well. Overall was a good performance from the team, there was a lot more creativity today. I'm not gutted that we lost, just happy that we are playing much better than we have been doing these past few months

      for me:
      Aqualani play 72 mins.
      Nando is back
      Pacheco looks hell of a player, i have said it before and il say it. he should get more first team action.
      Yossi scored.
      Dossena did alright.

      Aquilani, Gerrard, Torres all had important run outs.
      Pacheco looked really lively.
      Darby made his full debut.
      Agger and Skrtel were bothback and got through a whole game.
      Dossena looked confident.

      Sh*t result. Sh*t campaign. Get ready for the weekend.

      Darby showed his inexperience with that last bit. A blemish on what I thought was a decent performance. At least he didn't do it in a game that had something riding on it.

      Thank f**k the CL is over, it's been a f**king nightmare.

      we looked way better tonight than we have of late, in my opinion.

      Glad to hear a few people say that.

      We looked way sharper than of late, and I think now our injured, world class players are getting back to full fitness, we'll keep on improving.

      Don't know what game you've been watching but we haven't been that bad.  Played some good stuff at times, just a shame we had nobody up front for 70 odd minutes.

      Disappointing to lose again but alot more positives tonight including Aquilani, Cavalieri and Dossena. Onwards and upwards to more important matters on Sunday.

      Well I'm glad the Champions League is over so we can focus on our league matches now.  

      Glad to have the new/young blood on the pitch.  Glad to have Torres back.

      Agree with you Ayrton.

      RoF, what the hell game were you watching?

      Today's game has shown me that the only area we TRULY lack is up-front.

      It really isn't good to lose at home, again.

      Our run in this season's champions league is really, really disappointing.
