Are we really saying it was all Roys fault and not utter shit from some of our players?
Tactically baron yes, but you cant land it all on him today
If you have a CB who is very slow and poor going forward with the England RB available or a more competent young CB who has been good at RB then he's screwed that one up.
If you have Gerrard sitting deep and Meireles on the right you have just taken away any liason between the strikers and the midfield.
So we have: a slow CB playing RB, a player better at going forward playing too deep, a traditional CM playing RM, a good wide player in Johnson sitting on the bench, and then waiting until the 75th to do anything about a lineup that was stagnant.
On top of this you have Torres with his back to the goal or collecting the ball at half the whole game, which is basically the opposite of what he's the best in the world at, then yes it is all his fault.
You can also look at the apparent enthusiasm with hoofing. We were so much better with the ball along the floor, even moving it up from the back. Yet, it was forward, back, back Reina and then either a hoof right there(because he had to) or a pass to Carragher or Konchesky who would follow with a needless hoof.
