Horse sh*t defending on a corner once again. We make it way too easy for the opposition on set pieces.

We chased them around for 40 minutes.
Had a shot over the bar. Had one blocked that was offside, then let in another soft goal.

We are so sh*t from set pieces at the moment, something is broke! Lets fix it, or try atleast.

Weve tried to park the bus stop and almost made it to half time, whenever an oppurtunity has presented itself (rarely) bryan has had the touch of a trampoline. Pretty flat game, the opposite of the cracker at lionel.

Only 1-0 though which always gives us a shout so i maintain hope

What a shame to concede another soft, sh*te goal from another corner. PLease sort the defending from corners and set pieces Bees. We've been decent and up until that point - apart from BM - and was thinking we can get something from this game. Now we're right up against it.

If only Baptiste had Mbeumo's athleticism or Mbeumo had Baptiste's touch they would be unplayable.

Calamity defending but should have had a corner before their goal. That lino seems to be quite trigger happy with his flag

Pathetic. Looked a certain handball before the corner too
Not surprised.......They never review anything if it doesn't benefit Liverpool.... that's why we know them as LiVARpool on social media....🐝

You expect quality in the prem and expect to be outdone by quality at times, but this is becoming a joke conceding from set pieces like we are.

Poor defending at corners again other than that thought we came back into the game well towards the end of the half

We gave them a better game in 1989 to be fair. I'll give the second half ten minutes and if we're still not allowed the ball I'm off to change the cat litter.

We were never going to have much of the ball. Really disappointing goal to concede. Aart from conceding goal, we've had two great chances. I'd say an OK performance.

I understand the frustration but some of the comments on here are crap.

We are 1-0 down away at Liverpool, not Tranmere.
It's commenting on what we're seeing, we're not playing Tranmere today. Literally no point in the forum if we just say wow it's Liverpool, Chelsea, City, Utd etc every game. We're capable of being competitive here and that goal we conceded was frustrating.

Absolutely gutting to concede at that point. Where we were actually starting to show a bit of attacking intent.
we’ve defended very well up until that point.
Not sure how we approach second half as we need to come out and attack. At least they don’t have the pace of Salah if we get hit on the break!
we need to hold the ball up better up top.

We have done well but all good work a bit undone by a poor goal to concede. Game long way from being though despite their help from the referee

I said "some" of the comments, not all of them.

Calling us "pathetic", a "League 2 side" and questioning "why is it so hard?" are crap comments imo.

Yeah its Liverpool, but we shouldn't be down 1-0 that's the point. I wouldn't trust us defending a corner from the San Marino u19 women's team at this point.

Liverpool have most possession but have done next to nothing with it. We should be in with a chance of a point if we were playing at our best but this is an oddly subdued effort. At the moment we don't deserve anything.

My thoughts from dfirst half: Why are playing so deep. We are just asking for trouble. Need soemthing different than Baptiste in midfield. also think Henry is slightly struggling and looks little rusty

Sick of hearing blame on Alvaro too. One of these defenders needs to win a f***ing header
Someone needs to tell Fernandez he can come off his goal line, the 6yd box is his. All 3 defenders are looking around & haven't a clue if he's coming out or not. Every team know now just put it in the box & we will gift them a chance. Got to get Raya back or play Lossl. Defensive confidence starts with the keeper & we have zero.

It’s been backs to the wall stuff best part of the half but in fairness that’s what you’d expect. Shame to concede so late in the half though

We have defended pretty well, created a few chances ourselves and I thought we would get to half time and then we concede from yet ANOTHER corner,

Liverpool had all the ball and we have worked hard but we don’t retain it at all, when we do we look dangerous,

It’s a tough game against sides like this but Christ what a soft goal again.

Atmosphere is the worst so far thai season, we are doing our bit but the home fans are utter silence, cheered the goal but other than that this club has sold its soul to the tourist industry ,

One crumb of hope is that Liverpool are sometimes vulnerable at the back, it's just a question on whether we can capitalise on their frailties. Alexander-Arnold, Matip and van Dijk have shown in recent weeks how disjointed and incoherent they can really be if attacked.

My god I’m glad I don’t have to live with most of the posters on here. So much negativity. It gets you down
The thing I’ve figured from the match day threads is that some people only post when we’re losing and others act in bad faith.

Its best just to add them to your ignore list and move on.

Most people are just frustrated that we've "match" Liverpool and absorbed the pressure looked dangerous in moments. And threw all that away on a very poor set piece defensively. What's wrong with being frustrated? No one is saying we are crap. We've been one bit of qaulity away from scoring so close.

We've worked hard out of possession but very poor in it. Ivan again looks very laboured up top. BM gets in good positions but final touch isn't there. Vitaly has been finding some good attacking positions on occasion but too often our distribution is awry.
Just as it looks as though we have frustrated them poor defending at the back post & we conceded the simplest of headers. No fault attached to Alvaro who has done
well. Wing backs have been good defensively but seldom offered any support offensively.
Let's keep in it & see if TF can work the magic with the subs. Sergi for an injury time equaliser? Moss has been bloody awful....

Watching on NBC.......good save by Alvaro but Ivan was last defender !
Ivan and Bryan are isolated as we do not have a player pushing into final third, Liverpool are picking it up everytime.
Also noticible, we head it all the time out of defence and midfield,giving the ball away.
Norgard got it on his chest,got it down and laid off for a run.
COYB!

Stating the bleeding obvious, but we need to stop conceding corners.
Statistically, if a team only has 25% of the ball, the oppo are always more likely to have chances and score.

It's gone as I expected, but Liverpool haven't been particularly good. We rely on the odd breakout to score.

We really need to either change formation or get midfielders with more pace and accuracy. Games regularly pass our midfield by.

That last two minutes we won a corner linesman gave offside.
And you see that time and again on TV, player clearly offside but no flag, play continues and goes for a corner, ref gives the corner and no offside flag, but that's typical Anfield refs love them

We seem in such a hurry when we get the ball we invariably fail to get it under control and then the ball comes straight back.

We really need some composure in the middle of the park and someone who can buy themselves some time. Janelt can do that when he’s not rushing like everyone else

Liverpool make the odd mistakes at the back when pressured. We need to keep the ball long enough to have a go. No reason why we can't get a goal or two. And enough of the long ball. That's just giving it back.
