Liverpool: Forget Mario, How Terrible Is Our Defence?
Imagine one season having a genuine chance of winning the title for the first time in over two decades and the next being run ragged by QPR and a decrepit Bobby Zamora. Hurts a bit, that.
Opta Index came out with another statistic profiling the wheels thoroughly coming off the LFC van, with our revolving door of shoddy defenders leaking goal after goal like a dodgy sink.
With injuries abounding at full-back plus three shoddy centre-halves and a goalkeeper who tends towards the god-awful, Rodgers needs to get a plumber in and sort this stuff out. There's no way that they should be getting turned by such simple tactics, by players who they should be able to run rings around. Charlie bloody Austin? Lovren and Skrtel are supposed to be - if not world class - at least high-quality defenders. They looked like Sunday league players (only Sunday leaguers are more likely to attack the ball...)
How the hell do you fix a problem like Liverpool?
