      You are blaming Sakho for that? Im still blaming pitch.

      Pitch has got f**k all to do with it. It was a hospital pass, but got forgotten in the hysteria over Stevie's slip.

      What if it had been another player who was still at the club or who didn't leave in the way Sakho did?

      Then I'd call that player a c**t!

      Same way I slagged Dossena for being an absolute sh*te left back, the same way I called Charlie Adam a miserable c**t for ignoring some kids as he was leaving the ground in his birds car after the Wolves game at Anfield when Kenny was in charge.

      You don't always have to kiss the players' arses you know?

      I thought he was good too our best defender at the time.  But I understand he was a bit marmite. But after he rubbed Jürgen the wrong way it was the end for me.

      Think he just looked better than he was and we hyped him up to be better than he was because our defence was in such a mess back then, we were desperate for him to have that impact Virgil has. But looking back, on the whole he was pretty sh*t. Him and Lovren together were a complete disaster with zero communication. Think in their first game together they were falling over each other and getting in each other’s way.

      Liked Mamadou, was in our best 2 CBs at the time, wholehearted chap, didn't work out with Jürgen and you know who we'll side with there.  Him and Benteke playing at Palace with Woy, that's probably the right place for all of em imho.

      Like I said I thought he was good.  When he played for us my only concern was his injury problems.  They were fans that would get nervous with his bambi legs and the odd slip here and there but I felt comfortable with that sort of unorthodox style.  In my opinion he was a good ball player, strong very strong, nippy for a big guy, good in challenges he did everything well. 

      I thought he was better than Lovren, but in hindsight though it was for different reasons, But I thought keeping Lovren out of the two was better. Not that it was an option at the time.   I can't remember him playing on the right of defense and with his bambi legs am not sure he would be as effective on the right.  We all know that  VVD is on a totally different level to all them defenders at that time and now.

      It was a perfectly normal pass mate. Gerrard let it roll under his foot as he was looking up to see who was on for the long ball. Then slipped as his feet were in an unnatural position once he'd realised

      Nothing to do with Sakho. Those passes are made 100s of times a game
