I agree, the thing that swings an average Liverpool team though is being able to rely upon matchwinners like Coutinho, Firminho etc when all we have is Lukaku (when he's in the mood) and an erratic headless chuck Barkley plus a couple of potentially half decent kids.

Jim I would have to agree. Stevie Me carried them for years and it would appear the wheelbarrow has passed to Coutinho.

It's what we need. Just one genuine world class player can make all the difference. As it is we just don't have one. Rom is not world class regardless of what him and his old man think.

What is it with cowardly managers in the Premier League?

Evertonian Walters scores against them once again; so Hughes takes him off and brings Whelan on to hold on to the lead, and within one minute, the Kopites equalise, then score again. I just hope Koeman learns the lessons that Moyes never did, and doesn't resort to these surrender tactics again.

We've had 30 years of waving a white flag, Mick, it's in our DNA unfortunately.
