OK hang on a sec.

CAN WE LEAVE OUT THE SPECULATION ABOUT THE CROWD INCIDENT UNTIL THERE'S SOME OFFICIAL NEWS FROM A REASONABLE SOURCE.

Please.....

Well. Awful performance first half by the standards we should be setting, edge it at half time leading undeservedly 2-1 after going behind but eventually our class told and two very important goals for Carroll and Downing.

Really hope that this gives the two lads a platform to build from and boost their confidence.

FA Cup Round 4, here we come. Job done.

So ends 5-1 , Downing and Carroll getting on the score sheet , maxi playing a full 90, Aurelio playing a full 70. 2nd half is where we showed through. All in all decent. Coates was ok still looking a bit nervous but you can expect that. Bellamy Motm really. Gerrard a calming controlling figure. Spearing seemed to get overrun in the 1st but came back into it nicely. Shevley also had a good game.

Decent and onto the next game!

Through to next round. Aurelio & Gerrard got some game time. Carroll & Downing scored. Bellamy was brilliant. Happy days. Postives all round.

Happy about Carroll. He needed a goal and got it with his first touch. Hopefully he will start scoring on a regular basis from now.

When Shelvey scored it took a moment for me to realise that was his first Liverpool goal. He has been looking so comfortable out there.

......and Downing finally gets his first :)

If both Bellamy and Gerrard can stay fit; Suarez's absence wont have a big impact.
Would love the 19th; but would love even more to see a fan owned LFC.

Game of two halves tonight.

Perfomance wasnt there because we had about 7/8 players who havent played regular football. They were going to be a bit sluggish at times. That said good goals from Shelvey, Caroll and Downing which should hopefully give some confidence.

Good for Carroll and Downing to get a goal each. Very bad 1st half, but decent 2nd half. We controlled 2nd half and played as you have to against a much weaker team. Hope we can carry the chance conversion of 2nd half into Premier League.

Terrific score line. The fist bump of Downing tells a story: RELIEF

And for Andy to get a goal aswell, can only help him

It feels like just the type of game we needed, aside from that woeful first half performance. Carroll has some left peg & downing to break his duck.

job done, poor first half, better second.

main positives were gerrard getting 90 minutes, bellamy looking boss on the right, downing and carroll both score and hopefully that will improve there confidence and shelvey getting on the scoresheet too..

negatives...back four and kuyt.

Good game, cracking cup time until the 3rd which killed off Oldham.  Think I'm going to go and hide under a rock for a day or two because I have a bad feeling about what happened towards the end.

Shit first half, decent second.

Worried about what was said to their right back, don't know why people in the other thread suggested he got wound up over the Suarez song, he isn't retarded.

5 goals is a novelty these days. Glad Andy, Downing and Stewart got a goal. Still pretty poor play at times.

Goals from five different players.
Goals from Andy Carroll and Stewart Downing.
A better second half performance after the nerves may have been kicking in.
The full-time return of our captain.
And to cap it off, a 5-1 win. Albeit against Oldham.

Couldn't be much happier with that.

as great as that result is, and as much needed as some of them goals were, there's a shit storm waiting to come out over the incident with Adeyemi. something went on there and you could see that the kid was very shaken by it.

You can tell it meant a lot to Stewie. Over the moon for him and Andy.

Very poor performance at the back though but I guess you can't expect much when it's the first time they've all played together.

Really poor start but once we got the equaliser we settled down.  Delighted for Shelvey, Downing and Carroll.  Craig Bellamy is fucking superb.

stroll in the park. never going to be a classic performance and frankly i'd rather we save the classic performances for bigger games.

fair play to oldham, they did well but result never in doubt.

hopefully carroll and downing can use this to turn in better performances from now on.

Pretty poor first half but second half quite comfortable.  Impressed with Shelvey again, Gerrard looking sharp already and please for Carroll and Downing after poor performances last week and pretty much all season.

well Carroll Scores , Downing Scores, quiet night tonight then?

Performance not great in the first back four played like strangers, mom Bellamy for me, and seriously good to see those two maligned players score at the Kop end.

Oldham did well though!
