ITS THE MIDFIELD
« on: September 12, 2010, 07:04:49 pm »
Sorry but im sick of reading all these threads ie formation , the xxx appreciation thread / what went wrong thread.

Simple our midfield is shite , below par, average . call it what you want. Any team sunday league to professional has to have a balance of attacking and defense- we have f.all. Lucas and co. Wingers who cant beat a man!!!

Thats the Problem!

It's part of the problem.

Anyone that thinks our only problem is a Lucas/Poulsen pairing isn't particularly clever, though.

Yes it is our midfield but I will hold judgment until

Gerrard
Meireles
Kuyt
Cole
Jovanovic

can all play together. then if we are still as shit in the middle as we are now then pass me them blades bitch before cooking me tea.

Wow fantastic insight, and what do you suggest we do to alleviate these problems?
It's true to say that if Shankly had told us to invade Poland we'd be queuing up 10 deep all the way from Anfield to the Pier Head.

Spot on, but you know Lucas might unlock his potential one of these days, and be the next Kaka, who knows?

Totally agree, Lucas looke like a lost boy today, the lad isn't good enough and has had enough chances to show otherwise. Looking forward to seeing Cole with Gerrard and Raul behind, should be a different kettle of fish
As poppy petals gently fall
Remember us who gave our all
Not in the mud of foreign lands
Not buried in the desert sands

In Ulster field and farm and town
Fermanagh lanes and drumlin'd Down
We died that violent death should cease
And Ulstermen might live in peace.

for the united game you have got to play a defensive midfielder in poulsen then put meireles in the centre play cole on the left johnson on the right and martin kelly right back and gerrard and torres up top.
lucas and poulsen should never play together again!

Dont believe in slagging off our own players, but Lucas would not get a game down our local park. Please Roy realise this and drop him, we need to find some adventure to our play, hopefully next week Joe Cole can provide this, but today we never looked like scoring :wanker

I feel the squad is lacking in team spirit. Far too many pointless square balls and no one in the squad who can go past his man and deliver a decent cross. We should of been at least 2 goals down today at half time. The squad needs to get some of the Pepe attitude as he saved our bacon on several occasions today.

thats a joke right?  lol

we need to have Mereiles in there beside Poulsen. Lucas offers very little in an attacking sense.  he was awful today. every pass went a stray.

Lucas and Poulsen has to be up there as the worst centre midfield partnership we have ever had at Liverpool.

Poulsen looks attrocious. What kind of midfielder is he? He just seems to chase the ball but never actually manages to win it.

We need Gerrard and Merieles playing in the centre together.
Its not the most defensive midfield partnership, but they hold on to the ball well and dont give it away often - they also create plenty of chances.

Against Utd and other big teams? Its a dilemma.. you dont want to give up width but you want to have 3 men in the middle. Maybe 451?

I totally agree, it IS the worst midfield partnership have ever had.. definitely.
Poulsen is worse than Lucas, and by a bit. Atleast Lucas won tackles today.

The big change this season is that we are not keeping possession against opponents. That have to be sorted out quickly; otherwise we will get slaughtered by the good opposition.

I've seen some proper poor ones in the cups in Europe, or friendlies, and very occassionally in the league. But never, ever seen anything even close to this poor that was meant to be 1st choice.

I'll raise a dissenting voice. In the current system, I think LW and RW are even more important than CM.
