      It is tactically naiive to still play Balotelli up top on his own when the fucktard can't score for love nor money at the moment. And to then come out and say the team was excellent is either an insult to us fans or proof that the manager is a fecking idiot, either way I'm starting to think he might need replacing, would love us to try and get Rafa back or maybe poach Koeman from Southampton.

      Coutinho needs space to work in and the lack of space to work in because Rodgers has insisted on playing Balotelli as a lone striker has not been there. Hence his drop in form. He came on at a time when we brought on a second striker this weekend and all of a sudden there was movement up front for him to work with. Starting him every game will only work if you change the system we're currently playing.

      Having cooled down from yesterday I think the reason Brendan went to cautious yesterday in the first half playing 3 defensive mids is he might be trying to go back to basics. Build a solid foundation so we don't leak goals and build confidence. I expect a bit more of the same but hoping we click a bit further forward. No point being solid if we are so blunt up top.

      Good point.

      He has still been our best player out of a bad bunch this season & an out of form Coutinho is still capable of creating something out of nothing. Anything decent we create always comes through him.

      I'd also argue Balotelli would get more chances if Coutinho is somewhere near him no matter what system we play. Sterling cant link up the way Coutinho can.

      Agree for most part Walt.

      Would like to say with regards to the result slight improvement on the first time we played them last year they did us 2-0.



      Hull have never beaten us 2-0, 3-1 at their place. we beat them 2-0 at Anfield. We drew 2-2 with the mighty Phil Brown's side a few years back

      Correct.

      I do recall it was a 2 goal margin.
