The Redmen: LFC Fans React to Blackpool Defeat [video] Posted by Antoine Zammit January 13, 2011 Follow @azammit Share this: Share Twitter 9 responses to “The Redmen: LFC Fans React to Blackpool Defeat [video]” its very hard to say LiverpoolFC is sinking…..we must spend more money its urgent………. a sad Liverpool fan from INDIA Really bad result yet again bit of an optimistic team put out by king Kenny and yet again 3 points lost that were badly needed. Even though i’m gutted we lost Blackpool did deserve to win cause the way we played was shockin although if we had a choice of what team to beat us if we had to take a hit i’d take Blackpool anyday. They’re what footy used to be like they’re not earning insulting wages like the rest of prem players and they play because they want to play and ain’t just chasing the money. If every team had Blackpools passion for the game rather than driven by greed and complaining they’re only paid £100,000 per week rather than £150,000 per week like thier team mates we’d have a much better league. I wish football could go back to bein about the game rather than revenues and sponsership deals. Well done Blackpool you deserved to win last night still i wonder ….that Liverpool is facing problems is easy to see…..but to witness fans like yourself who more or less doesnt do anything else than complain is astonishing and sad… Liverpool fans used to be the best out there…almost militant in their support of the club…but you Sir are not up to that standard… grow up and stand by youre team… best Wishes….a Gooner.. Well done to Blackpool. They deserved to win. Over the moon that Hodgson is gone and King Kenny is back. The only thing i would like to know is why was he playing Poulsen and why J Cole was not playing. He’s been there when Roy was playing Poulsen and he saw that he is rubbish so why play him last night at all. long live the KING. YNWA Interesting comment right at the end. “We are not relegated, yet” well done Blackpool, we deserve what to lose yesterday we was shocking,if you put shit players on the pitch you are going to get shit football, the team are not giving us any passion or team spirit on the pitch if this carries on we wont have no new supporters coming through who wants to support a bunch of losers,if we dont sighn any players in this window we will not be in the prem next season i totally agree with dave. i think it demonstrates my opinion that our problems were trifold. The 3rd segment is the squad quality. Some of these players need to be replaved. We need a good full back, a left back, a winger and a striker. Not much to ask. Why we didn’t keep crouch or bellamy. We need to rally for the derby because the bluenoses will fancy their chances. The Torres worship has got to stop because it’s coloring the overall honest assessment of our club. We are now a mid-table club. Even with Stevie G. we simply lack the overall talent to realistically compete for top six. What our players look like on paper is shite because none of that presumed quality is showing up on the pitch. Torres is no exception, in fact he’s probably the singular glaring example of this fact. He had maybe ten bright minutes in an overall dismal performance last night. Earlier in the campaign when we were actually winning a few matches, other than Chelsea, can anyone point to a single example where Torres looked bright? He was getting plenty of service and not converting, even on sitters. My count is that he’s flubbed eleven sitters this season – absolutely shocking for a player of his CV. Our entire offensive thrust is based on getting the ball to this man’s feet but he has neither the pace nor the skill to keep the ball up, move around defenders, or create any space for himself. He loses the ball all time, he takes extra touches, he’s become predictable. All that said there’s still room for hope with him, but we as fans cannot put all of our eggs in this one basket. Torres has neither the support around him nor currently the ability or inclination to play up to his very real potential. It’s coming close to time for the owners to fish or cut bait with him. His valuation, should he not work out, might be more productive to our getting good young starting talent into the team next year than building around him with the prospect of more subpar performances.
