Liverpool fan and former Premier League striker Micky Quinn has had a pop at many of our players following the 2-0 Champions League defeat to Red Star.
But the one who he picked out first was James Milner, who was completely overrun in midfield.
Jurgen Klopp started with the vice-captain, Adam Lallana and Gini Wijnaldum as a central three, but all were abysmal, in fairness.
They misplaced their passes, failed to track runners and showed no spark on the ball.
“As a Liverpool fan I’m very disappointed,” Quinn told talkSPORT.
“That first 45 minutes especially replicated the Napoli game where they looked lethargic, tactically inept and woefully lacking creativity in midfield.
“[James] Milner running around like a chicken with no head, [Georginio] Wijnaldum the same – no impact away from home…
“[Adam] Lallana rusty, [Daniel] Sturridge rusty, Joel Matip coming into the team looked rusty as well.
“I think they definitely underestimated that Red Star Belgrade team; at home, they are not a bad team.”
The manner Milner started this season was nothing short of sensational. He was Man of the Match on regular occasion, but his form has tailed off and we don’t think he warrants a spot in the starting XI right now.
Fabinho showed enough against Red Star first time out and Cardiff, that we hope he’s given a run in the team to get fully up to speed, as we know he’s better than he showed against Arsenal.
Naby Keita simply has to stay fit and start proving why we put so many eggs in his basket. He has the ability to win balls back, drive through midfield and make things happen – but has so far showed very little of note.
