Confirmed XI vs. Stoke: Ruthless BR names shock team & dumps £88m worth of talent

He's only gone ahead and done it (!) Brendan Rodgers has finally shown some balls and surprisingly dropped Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard for today's must-win game with Stoke City.

Dejan Lovren and Adam Lallana are also left out for the second game in a row as Rodgers tries to halt Liverpool's atrocious run of Premier League form.

FULL TEAM: Mignolet, Johnson, Enrique, Skrtel, Toure, Lucas, Allen, Henderson, Coutinho, Sterling, Lambert

SUBS: Jones, Lovren, Moreno, Lallana, Gerrard, Markovic, Can

A few points:

* Rodgers will probably argue that Gerrard is merely being 'rested', or carrying a slight injury, but leaving the skipper out is a massive statement of intent from the manager, and it's absolutely the right decision. Gerrard's influence is negligible this season, and he should be subject to being dropped just like any other player.

* In my view, the starting XI is a testament to Rodgers consistently questionable performance in the transfer market. Only four of Rodgers' signings make the team (Mignolet, Toure, Lambert, and Coutinho), with the rest of the XI made up of players who were at the club before BR arrived. Additionally, he's left £88m worth of summer signings on the bench, which just illustrates how badly Rodgers got it wrong over the summer.

* Alberto Moreno is on the bench for third game in a row. He's clearly not being rested, so, why continue to leave him out of the team. The Spaniard must really be out of favour if Rodgers is playing injury-prone Jose Enrique ahead of him.

* It'll be interesting to see what happens if Liverpool win the game; will Rodgers keep Gerrard on the bench? Will Lovren and Lallana remain out in the cold? Players should be in the team on merit, and if the Reds emerge victorious today, then there's no reason to bring Gerrard et al back into the side.

Probable formation:

------------------ Mignolet

Johnson ----- Skrtel --- Toure ----- Enrique

--------------- Lucas - Allen

Hendo ----------- Sterling ------- Coutinho

----------------- Lambert

My prediction: 1-1

  3. Im wondering what is happening with Moreno would have preferred him to Enrique and also Can to Lucas however we shall see!

    still supporting rodgers
    but maybe we will see the best of new players under a different manager




    rodgers is suffering teh opposite of daglish who gave his new players too much chances , rodgers none

    ReplyDelete
  5. My guess is (the only reason that comes to mind) is the concentration lapses which have conceded 2 goals, the one at man city... And another one which happened more recently, can't remember the team.

    ReplyDelete
  6. Enrique is no better, all it takes to go past him is cut inside.

    ReplyDelete
  7. well Can is not a DM he's more a box to box.

    Rodgers you have to play your new players
    lallana is better then allen and coutinho
    can is better then allen and lucas
    lovren is better then skrtel
    markovic is better then lambert
    moreno si better then johnson and enrique

    ReplyDelete
  9. id have coutinho starting any day

    ReplyDelete
  10. Nevergonnacrackthecode2:42 pm, November 29, 2014

    if sturridge is playing
    coutinho best quality is his through balls but there is no one to get them
    lallana does not need fast men playing

    ReplyDelete
  11. Nevergonnacrackthecode2:44 pm, November 29, 2014

    lallana an assist last assist dropped
    can a goal last start dropped


    markovic best performance vs real Madrid so far , dropped after


    lim sorry but what is going on
    did rodgers buy the players or ian ayre

    ReplyDelete
  12. if BR changes to a diamond during the game then couts will fit into the 10 role with sterling up front with lambert..just saying theres more options

    ReplyDelete
  13. To spend over 100 million and put that team out at home deserves the sack - unless they win !. no Lalana madness.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Lovren is better than Skrtel in your dreams.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Nevergonnacrackthecode2:46 pm, November 29, 2014

    skrtel never makes tackles just fouls
    not one attempt at a tackle vs crystal palace


    lovren at least tries to be afootballer sometimes ballerina rather then a rugby player like skrtel

    ReplyDelete
  16. lovren deserves to be dropped he has been poor

    ReplyDelete
  17. I was beginning to think I was mad to be the only one to see the blindingly obvious but there are at least two of us.

  18. Nevergonnacrackthecode2:49 pm, November 29, 2014

    i have said it before liverpool should follow southampton approach to putting out a team


    ......................................................lambert
    lallana/sterling..............................henderson/allen............borini
    ..............................................lucas...............can

    ReplyDelete
  19. He has been our best defender for the past 2 seasons,, Lovren is a mistake waiting to happen. Tell me when Lovren was better than Skrtel in what match, ????

    ReplyDelete
  20. so lets drop both then hey! and who will play?

    ReplyDelete
  21. brave ? are you kidding ?
    lucas, henderson and allen in the middle ? worse then Benitez era
    all of them together haven't got half of what Gerrard quality
    (even at his age)
    on the other hand its not suprising as brandon got all his decisions wrong so its no difference

    ReplyDelete
  22. I would rather play Lovren alongside Toure to be honest. Sakho returned to training during the week so if Enrique who has been out for quite some time now can start then surely Sakho can?

    ReplyDelete
  23. Jaimie you might have to amend your view on "Rodgers signings" in light of the stament from Ian Ayre that Rodgers DOES NOT HAVE A DECIDING VETOE in transfers. He said no one Man can sign a player, it is by majority tru the committee of Six. So lots of these signings may not be BR's choice.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Nevergonnacrackthecode2:54 pm, November 29, 2014

    its the same midfield vs spurs at white hart line last season


    .......coutinho...................................henderson.........sterling
    ....................................allen..........lucas




    but big difference
    NO SUAREZ , we instead have OVERWEIGHT LAMBERT


    today we shall see how much of a difference suarez really amde

    ReplyDelete
  25. Nevergonnacrackthecode2:54 pm, November 29, 2014

    rodgers wanted wilfried bony not balotelliu

    ReplyDelete
  26. I agree I dnt understand with the madness of BR starting Enrique over Moreno however with no other options at CB BR has chosen Skirtl over lovren even though both have been error prone due to injuries he made his choice lets hope it works out

    ReplyDelete
  27. The committee of six decided to buy the players, not Rodgers, as Ian Ayre's statement clarifies midweek.

    ReplyDelete
  28. It's brave only selecting one of your summer signings, knowing the stick that's gonna come his way. It's brave, but correct at the moment, to not select Gerrard. Bravery isn't just putting out an attacking team, it's about making tough decisions. Your view is simplistic in the extreme but each to their own.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Knew I would'nt get an answer to that.

    ReplyDelete
  30. In the table football match

    ReplyDelete
  31. On another note, good luck to Hendo in hist first PL game as captain..

    ReplyDelete
  32. Stoke havent won at Anfield in 55 years lets hope its 56 after today.

    on another note ibe is starting vs leeds today

    ReplyDelete
  35. I find this "blame the committee" quite ridiculous. Obviously there's a problem with the committee on who they are deciding however the committee chose Sturridge and Continho but Rodgers likes to take credit for those signings. I personally believe we should bring Commoli back as head scout and have someone who knows how to sign players for the right amount.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I'd say Lovren was a better defender than Skrtel pretty much all last season. Skrtel is being made look better by the high level of ineptitude around him. I think it's fair to say that none of the current CBs inspire much confidence.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Lucas looking good. the ball has gone forward a lot and he is creating a good link.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I would have dropped skrtel allen and lambert replaced by lovren lallana and borini.

    ReplyDelete
  39. A big difference is also the lack of confidence. Your hating on Lambert is ridiculous, why not have a pop at a player who is not giving his all or maybe a player who is no scoring.

    The only thing proven today is how utterly clueless you are.

    ReplyDelete
  40. It's not my view; it's Rodgers view. He is the one who has repeatedly stayed that he has final say on transfers.

  41. You need to think before you start typing

    ReplyDelete
  42. Build up play to slow as usual. Lambert isolated and Sterling having no impact out wide. Same old same old. Stoke just waiting for the opportune moment.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Emre Can should have started.

    ReplyDelete
  44. We have so become the most predictable team to play against. Pitiful.

    ReplyDelete
  45. shaka can should of started

    ReplyDelete
  46. we do look more solid

    ReplyDelete
  47. or was it striker where you press the head down

    ReplyDelete
  48. So Boring to watch now This side would struggle in Championship

    ReplyDelete
  49. It is not like Stoke are really putting much of an effort in either. They are clearly playing for the draw. It just shows how bad we are. Not one shot at goal!!!

    ReplyDelete
  50. how is the match going????

    ReplyDelete
  51. Never has there been a bigger contrast in a teams play from one season to the next....very slow and lethargic, am beginning to wonder whether he has started to lose the dressing room. Bad signs for him if this is the case.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Going Stoke's way !

    ReplyDelete
  53. even with gerrard dropped???

    ReplyDelete
  54. Can't watch the match today, how bad are we doing?

    ReplyDelete
  55. We are fantastic we are holding Stoke to 0-0

    ReplyDelete
  56. Same old, same old but Lambert is still showing signs of positivity

    ReplyDelete
  57. Lucas has been our best performer this half, I really hope he keeps his place ahead of Gerrard, Johnson has some real confidence issues, every pass he makes is negative.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Much a do about nothing

    ReplyDelete
  59. And Stoke are not even trying.

  60. Nevergonnacrackthecode3:45 pm, November 29, 2014

    man utd are turned goood top 4 is out of the question
    we need t sign bony he scores every game
    want to see balotelli and bony upo front togetehr

    ReplyDelete
  61. Did Mignolet seriously create an opening?

    ReplyDelete
  62. Is borini injured?

    ReplyDelete
  63. So we have no striker on the bench.. great

    ReplyDelete
  64. Nevergonnacrackthecode3:48 pm, November 29, 2014

    would take a 0-0 draw here we need to stop losing

    ReplyDelete
  65. defence looking more solid just nothing happening in midfield we need 2 up front

    ReplyDelete
  66. We are finished. The logical move would be to take Can in for Allen but that is never going to happen.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Nevergonnacrackthecode3:49 pm, November 29, 2014

    defense is looking solid because of 5 midfielders
    3 of them defense minded

    ReplyDelete
  68. Or Rodgers knows he is going and will try and prove that he was right sticking with this insipid style of football.

    ReplyDelete
  69. What a SHyteee first half urghhh

    ReplyDelete
  70. so Henderson allen are defense minded?

    ReplyDelete
  71. Bore fest no attempts on goal

    ReplyDelete
  72. Nevergonnacrackthecode3:55 pm, November 29, 2014

    amazing what man utd look like to the one under moyes a guy who never won anything to van gaal
    a top successful manager

    ReplyDelete
  73. No they are Xavi and Iniesta, remember?

    ReplyDelete
  74. Don't worry I am sure BR will say we played well, worked hard and that they were brave

    ReplyDelete
  75. Just amazing, oh that and spending £120 million net on new players.

    ReplyDelete
  76. Stoke fans singing - how do you watch this every week - as per Radio 5

    ReplyDelete
  77. B R odds to be sacked now 7/2

    ReplyDelete
  78. Countinho has no killer instinct...none. Lallana ought to be playing if SG isn't. Lallana moves the ball, beats his man and attacks. Right now we suck...bad.

    ReplyDelete
  79. Managed to find the game to watch the 2nd half.. why why why am I doing this to myself

    Ghost rider
    Liverpool are doing fantastically well , stoke are a tough premier league team . We almost scored one time this shows our progress , joe allen was fantastic as always he managed to pass the ball backwards and keep the ball 98% of the time .
    while mignolet only conceded one goal, we lost this but we are getting we are turning corners

    ReplyDelete
  81. Nevergonnacrackthecode4:07 pm, November 29, 2014

    the metro say that fsg are in the process of finding shortlist of candidates for the job of manager

    ReplyDelete
  82. My Wi-Fi got f***** up and now cant watch the 2nd half.... to my luck

    ReplyDelete
  83. Yep bring Lallana on at least he is able to run with ball

    ReplyDelete
  84. That's a bit better... come on

    ReplyDelete
  85. Bravery has nothing to do with it. Its not a wood or some a rescue operation. We are talking about football and pure quality. In his desicion he is claiming that the the starting line up is better without Gerrard and its pure nonsense. All 3 are representing how backwards we went to mediocrity

    ReplyDelete
  86. He also said that Reina was going nowhere and we wouldn't sign Ballotelli. You may not have noticed but Rodgers lies. This statement from Ayre fits with logic. It has been obvious to most of us.

    ReplyDelete
  87. Rodgers signed Allen. So five of the eleven arw Rodgers signings and Enrique may have been chosen due to physique. Stoke are historically a big strong side. Although that argument falls apart with Allen over Can but there is the experience argument.

    ReplyDelete
  88. Agree with all that mate

    ReplyDelete
  89. Playing better, Stoker are uncertain..

    ReplyDelete
  90. Commentator is Man of the Match for his comment, "There's a game of premier league football threatening to emerge here."

    ReplyDelete
  91. This is a rescue operation. He's trying to rescue his job / our season. I would have thought that was blatantly obvious. Oh and Stevie Wonder could see that Gerrard needs a rest. You can have all the quality in the world but if your body is giving up, it's giving up.

    ReplyDelete
  92. Christ that was bloody close. This has turned into a end to end game

    ReplyDelete
  93. Seriously take Courtino off.. please

    ReplyDelete
  94. Does this sound familiar? "Johnson!!...dispossessed"

    ReplyDelete
  95. Anybody but lucas. ...

    ReplyDelete
  96. Or Glen Johnson kicks the ball out

    ReplyDelete
  97. Nevergonnacrackthecode4:23 pm, November 29, 2014

    not his fault
    the left wing is not his position
    allen is teh one that should not be on

    ReplyDelete
  98. Johnson- finally- created something after two seasons

    ReplyDelete
  99. That's no excuse for not being able to pass

    ReplyDelete
  100. FFS... how the he'll did he miss that !!!!

    ReplyDelete
  101. good game from 2nd half

    ReplyDelete
  102. Why are the chances falling to these guys?

    ReplyDelete
  103. 2012 all over again. Allen misses another sitter.

    ReplyDelete
  104. Nevergonnacrackthecode4:28 pm, November 29, 2014

    2012 was a million times better

    ReplyDelete
  105. This would be the perfect time to bring on Markovic. . Game is open, there is space to be exploited

    ReplyDelete
  106. our football is better though with gerrard out the team better pressing and defending shame about the finishing!

    ReplyDelete
  107. It's is but you know he is going to bring him on

    ReplyDelete
  108. Lucas off, Gerrard on- why oh why

    ReplyDelete
  109. the lack of finishing is just laughable by now. Most people came to his defence last year when I said this. Lets see how many are willing to defend him now. BR = BS BR = BS BR = BS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  110. In fairness at this stage playing gerrard further up for a fifteen minute go is ok with me. Not as if Lucas going to score a blinder...

    ReplyDelete
  111. We have what.. 80mil of players on the bench.. what a waste

    ReplyDelete
  112. everything can be resumed to that simple formula

    ReplyDelete
  113. We need those two subs in now.

    ReplyDelete
  114. Lucas goes off, Gerrard on and we now look very shaky at the back

    ReplyDelete
  115. Is there a place on the pitch we don't look shaky?

    ReplyDelete
  116. jhonson finally

    ReplyDelete
  117. Please tell me he knocked himself out

    ReplyDelete
  118. Whew! A goal on pure hustle and wanna. Great to see.

    ReplyDelete
  119. I have to give him credit for that. Manned up and got the goal. Lambert played a huge part as well.

    ReplyDelete
  120. Same here... waited a few years for it but good job

    ReplyDelete
  121. Has he just gone 5 at the back..

    ReplyDelete
  122. Lovren,Skrtel and Toure- recipe for disaster

    ReplyDelete
  123. It just invites pressure and I hate it... hopefully we can hold on

    ReplyDelete
  124. Wait Johnson of all the people? All hail BR the genius!

    ReplyDelete
  125. Negative tactice- get memories of the Everton game

    ReplyDelete
  126. still going to get the axe

    ReplyDelete
  127. Good win at the end- Kolo solid and Lambert good. Sterling and Coutinho slowly rediscovering their form. On to the next game.

    ReplyDelete
  128. Nevergonnacrackthecode4:56 pm, November 29, 2014

    yes finally

    ReplyDelete
  129. That was great but way harder than it should have been.

    ReplyDelete
  130. Well...I won't be talking s*** about Johnson this week.

    ReplyDelete
  131. We are going to have to accept that. But, 3 points, clean sheet and confidence to some players out of form- not too bad.

    ReplyDelete
  132. 3 point n clean sheet is matter

    ReplyDelete
  133. Nevergonnacrackthecode4:57 pm, November 29, 2014

    only 3 points of 7th now

    ReplyDelete
  134. Nevergonnacrackthecode4:58 pm, November 29, 2014

    that was BRAVE by glen johnson

    ReplyDelete
  135. Watch how all these people will come out of nowhere and say how they always believed in Johnson and that he would prove them right.

    ReplyDelete
  136. Nevergonnacrackthecode4:58 pm, November 29, 2014

    we need to do what mourinho done stay solid and pluck out results till we can get a striker like costa
    i reccomend bony

    ReplyDelete
  137. Nevergonnacrackthecode5:00 pm, November 29, 2014

    johnson just saved rodgers job

    ReplyDelete
  138. Well at least Rodger's bollocking at HT did the trick this time ...... If only we had played like it the first half ! Toure sound and Glenda earnt his corn for once .Could this just be the turning point ?

    ReplyDelete
  139. Nevergonnacrackthecode5:01 pm, November 29, 2014

    hard working team that was
    kolo and lucas have to continue
    allen was much better


    stay solid and compact get as many points as possible till January stay top 10 then in January invest in bony potentially get origi back maybe sturridge then we can play free flowing attacking football

    ReplyDelete
  140. anyone remember a few days ago i said "gerrard ruins the balance of the team drop him for lucas and watch our defense tighten up?" even Lovren will look much better with Lucas ahead of him mark my words Gerrard is nothing but a impact player now!

    ReplyDelete
  141. Nevergonnacrackthecode5:03 pm, November 29, 2014

    if we played like that first half we would have been drained
    rodgesr has realized that pressing is not working as it requires liverpool to score goals early like suarez used to
    if you press early and dont get the goal you lose the match

    ReplyDelete
  142. Finally rodgers shows balls and drops gerrad oh look we win and a clean sheet

    ReplyDelete
  143. Nevergonnacrackthecode5:04 pm, November 29, 2014

    gerrard will get better when he has two mobile striker like bony,origi and sturridge ahead of him
    gerrard feeds off movement that's how his passing range is effective

    ReplyDelete
  144. Lambert with more game time looks better each match . Gaining in confidence ... Bye Bye Mario

    ReplyDelete
  145. Lambert 2 goals and 1 assist in three games- what did Balotelli do before?

    ReplyDelete
  146. I have to say I was wrong with lambert....he is pretty decent

    ReplyDelete
  147. Nevergonnacrackthecode5:07 pm, November 29, 2014

    i still will when we sign bony and get origi back from his loan
    i want lucas etc dropped til, then they are alright
    i would after January play:
    .........................................bony
    sterling..............................coutinho...................origi
    ....................................henderson......can
    moreno.........................lovren............toure..........manquillo
    ..........................................mignolet

    ReplyDelete
  148. Nevergonnacrackthecode5:07 pm, November 29, 2014

    that does not count as an assist

    ReplyDelete
  149. Nevergonnacrackthecode5:07 pm, November 29, 2014

    how can you be happy
    when we have gone from suarez and sturridge to Lambert in 5 months?

    ReplyDelete
  150. i guess i was wrong about johnson!

    ReplyDelete
  151. I could have sworn Gerrard was on the field at the time. Don't worry I was probably imagining it.

    ReplyDelete
  152. Nevergonnacrackthecode5:11 pm, November 29, 2014

    Bony should be our main target
    ...................................................balotelli/origi....bony
    ...............................................................sterling
    ..................................................allen.................henderson
    ............................................................gerrard


    or we play 433
    ...................................................bony
    sterling/lallana.........................................coutinho....................origi
    ...........................................henderson..........allen/can




    either way get bony and origi in
    offer swansea ricky lambert and lille borini on loan till end of season

    ReplyDelete
  153. Nevergonnacrackthecode5:15 pm, November 29, 2014

    hopefully tomorrow city beat southampton
    and spurs and evrton draw

    ReplyDelete

    lucas and toure are solidity
    no way can brendan drop them now

  156. Nevergonnacrackthecode5:17 pm, November 29, 2014

    watch when liverpool get origi in january and bony in janaury
    balotelli will be that player

    ReplyDelete
  157. I am not a fan of Migno but he had a better game today and kept us in it .
    Hopefully will be good for his confidence now .

    ReplyDelete
  158. Put his head where most wouldn't. We needed that!

    ReplyDelete
  159. Nevergonnacrackthecode5:18 pm, November 29, 2014

    all our investment in bony now
    he is the new Luis Suarez




    similar goal record to suarze at the same age

    ReplyDelete
  160. I will.. One header does not make up for the numerous mistakes he consistly makes

    ReplyDelete
  161. Bailed out by Johnson as usual. How many times have we said that over the years? Embarassing how much of a one man team we are, to be honest.


    No wonder he's hesitating over a new deal, we need to show him we're serious going forward and bring in some big names to reassure him, otherwise, he'll end up at Barca/Real like Suarez/Xabi.



    The board just need to get their chequebook out now.

    ReplyDelete
  162. Rubbish look at the chances we had to score second half ?
    And when we got the lead we went defensive bringing on Lovren which nearly cost us the match

    ReplyDelete
  163. Bailed out by johnson as usual.. what are you smoking. When was the last time johnson bailed us out

  169. I know it's painful to admit, but Glen's carrying us right now. He's our 3rd top scorer and he's playing in defence. Says everything.

  170. 2nd goal in 3 years commentator said and it's Johnson who needs to get his head checked .....

  171. sarcasm : because arguing with stupid people is not nearly enough fun

  172. Does Johnson need to get his head checked?

    Are you saying that because he's thinking of leaving? I don't blame him. We've regressed and our tactics now are basically "don't try and concede, wait for Glen to work his magic".

    Or are you saying it because he was loyal and stayed with us even after we lost Suarez?

  173. And what has that done for liverpool. The truth s lambert is great at holding the ball up and actually has a clue what to do with the ball,

  174. What is so bad about lambert? He is just n fashionable and why we do so bad, we play players based on reputation, not merit. Lambert is showing desire and getting and creating goals. He might not be the best but he is doing the job well.

  175. Nah, mate. They weren't covering. It's tactical. Rodgers has told the players to stay tight to Glen, so they can play 1-2s with him. When Glen inevitably gets the ball back, they basically charge forward and wait for Glen to put it on a plate for them. We've seen it time and again.

    Also (I think) Rodgers puts players near him just to learn from him and be reassured by his authority.

  180. i have to admit the player around him seems so confident when he's defending that it's reassuring to know that he'll be the last between the attacker and the goal.

  181. a goal every 4 years is a good return for a liverpool player

  182. Last year, forget it, thats history.

  183. Oh sorry mate, I thought you were one of these loonies having a go at Glen.

    ReplyDelete
  184. Argh! Sorry. I didn't realise he was being sarcastic. I thought it was weird that he was having a go at Glen. Thought I'd stumbled into a coven of covert Mancs.

    Thanks for clearing that up.

  185. Lambert is more of a player than either of Sturridge or Suarez. By a few stone too, I'd bargain. Big wide lad.
