Absolute tosh and waste of time watching. The great RB experiment with the boy failed miserably as he was at fault for three goals by being too far up the pitch, not anticipating the oppositions moves and failing to block as usual. Truly rubbish.

Battling first half performance not helped by the officials. We might easily have gone in 1-0 up at half-time. But in the last quarter the game it became very one-sided and it looked like Liverpool would score every time they attacked.

Our settled back four was like a house of cards. Take one card out and the whole thing collapses. We missed Cedric BADLY. I know he couldn't have played because of injury anyway but we have really shot ourselves in the foot for the remainder of the season. Without Cedric our defence is once again looking like a leaky sieve. Because he had to fill in at right-back, we also missed Ward-Prowse in midfield.

Great first half. They got away with a couple of hand balls but the penalty decisions evened out.

Could have been 2 nil up, unfortunately Shane did a great block.

Defence did the usual and just watched people when we needed a bit of positional play or a block.

Hey ho. A bit frustrating if I'm honest. The score doesn't really do us justice.

If only we had played the second half like the first.We still showed we need someone to organize the central defense got caught at sixes and sevens for the last two goals.No need to point fingers as it's plain to see where we still need improvement,still the effort can't be faulted but we do seem to always have a lap of concentration that sometimes we get away with and sometimes we don't,this was one we didn't.We have some games coming up now that are very winnable.Coyr.

A great watch and at half time we could have been leading. Friend only gave us free kicks on the halfway line. How was that passback ignored?

Very disappointed that everyone is giving such a low mark to our team, they played really well and with a better ref we could have won

mattthelegend added 19:20 - Feb 1

Didn’t watch the game so suppose I can’t really comment, but come on people, with the exception of aceofthebase you’re talking like we lost to MK Dons. Were you really expecting us to get something from a team that has dropped 2 points all season at home?? 🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️ Reality check needed please.

I would, I would upvote you again but they wont let me. The others seem to have gone to a different game?

the_saint added 10:14 - Feb 2

Saints played extremely well in the first half and could have scored 4 goals ourselves with a bit of luck so well played boys, but we missed 3 things yesterday a natural right back, jwp in central midfield and the biggest one of all stuart Armstrong

janecook added 10:51 - Feb 2

Should have tried harder to keep Cedric or bought RB that is Fit to play. Prowse is to slow to play at RB this showed yesterday. Lets hope Armstrong gets fit soon as we missed him big time yesterday.

Olive2017 added 11:36 - Feb 2

Just was not getting rub of the green. VVD made all the difference with the service to Salah. Adams again showed promise in the short time on the field: just an unlucky boy. Recharge batteries for Burnley and put this behind us COYR

I_would added 15:28 - Feb 2

Thanks for your support Hythe but I do rely on the negative votes from the blinkered saps on here to confirm that my judgement is spot on.

Block8 added 20:19 - Feb 2

Very good performance particularly first half. I thought JWP made a good fist at playing RB. Liverpool were trying really hard to expose his lack of pace with countless balls over the top for Robertson to chase.
The fact they didn't score from any of these, although they got behind us a few times, is testament to good defending.
Unlucky with the first goal but maybe a bit of a mental pause, hoping for the penalty, was our downfall. Second goal well worked, after another long ball clearance & from there Liverpool took over, we pushed forward looking for a goal and left gaps that their pace exploited quite easily.
No shame losing to this Liverpool side but we will miss JWP's influence in midfield on Wednesday if he is forced to play in defence again.
As an aside I loved the Lovren song, even if it was a bit strong considering the amount of kids at the game!

The battle of the the have's and have nots?
One manager allowed to create the best squad in the world, the other barely allowed to make one or two additions to his team that could ensure safety. How far we have come? Has it ever been so?
A 'battling' performance with an inevitable outcome.
One day this club will manage to coincide an obviously shrewd manager with a shrewd board or owner -here's hoping.
Well done manager, team and fans, still believe we can take those NLY on Wednesday.

I_would added 15:37 - Feb 3

Battling first half performance. Could have been 2 nil up. A great watch. Saints played extremely well. Just was not getting rub of the green. Very good performance. Well done manager, team and fans.

This is what you saps actually wrote about losing 4-0. Couldn't make it up.
