Confirmed Teams: £46m duo out; massive surprise as Rodgers dumps 'wonderful' midfielder

In a surprise move, Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has left 'wonderful' Reds captain Steven Gerrard out of the match-day squad for tonight's must-win clash with Hull City.

FULL TEAM: Mignolet, Can, Skrtel, Lovren, Johnson, Allen, Henderson, Ibe, Sterling, Coutinho, Balotelli

SUBS: Jones, Toure, Lambert, Manquillo, Lallana, Brannagan, Markovic

* I expected Gerrard to be on the bench, but not left out of the squad altogether. He recently missed three games, so it's not like he's tired and/or overplayed. Is Gerrard injured again, or has Rodger just dropped him altogether?

* With Liverpool's season on the line, I imagine that Gerrard will be angry about missing out on such a important game.

* Balotelli makes his second consecutive start, something he hasn't done since October 2014.

* Joe Allen comes in for Gerrard, and with Lucas out, the Welsh international has yet another chance to stake a claim for a regular starting place.

This is the team I selected in the pre-match preview article, and hopefully Rodgers will go with the following formations:

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

Can -------------- Skrtel ----------------- Lovren

-- Johnson -- Allen - Henderson ---------- Ibe

------------Coutinho - Balotelli

----------------- Sterling

I suspect, however, he'll continue to persist with the fatal strategy of playing Balotelli up-front alone:

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

Can -------------- Skrtel ----------------- Lovren

-- Johnson -- Allen - Henderson ---------- Ibe

------------Coutinho - Sterling

----------------- Balotelli

Quite simply, this is a must-win game, and given the comparative cost of both squads, anything other than a victory is unacceptable.

  4. Balo hat-trick it is then!

    ReplyDelete
  5. I would have excepted a back 3 and Balotelli starting if we went 3-4-1-2 with Sterling alongside Balotelli, but both are as selfish as eachother, so that may not work either.

    ReplyDelete
  6. What is Balotelli going to do different in this match compared to the last match is my question to Brendan Rodgers and who is going to change the match from the bench?

    Confirmed #LFC subs v @HullCity: Jones, Toure, Lambert, Manquillo, Lallana, Brannagan, Markovic



    Did we really spend £117m to be in this situation?

    ReplyDelete
  7. Can't believe Johnson is starting again, he must have photos of BR doing something he shouldn't be doing!

    ReplyDelete
  8. Why has he started Balotelli again?

    ReplyDelete
  9. Lambert must be spitting at a picture of Brendan before he sleeps just to relieve his frustration at being treated like a muppet....We all know Balotelli is a joke.. Give Lambert a chance, especially against a physical Hull defence... I would have played Lambo,Marko and Lallana instead of Allen, Johnson and Balotelli, but thats just me thinking of ways to entertain the fans and stop people falling asleep in theor seats as they watch a repeat of the WBA game.... Luckily my hair is too short to pull it out while watching... Thank God for small mercies..

    Surprised Gerrard not even in the squad.... he has to be hurt or something.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Yea and can behind ??

    ReplyDelete
  12. Playing Mario as lone striker? Not a big secret, mate.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Not only did he not prove a point, I don't even know what point he was trying to make.

    ReplyDelete
  14. In my opinion, every team is going encounter so good fortune and some misfortune...


    The good teams will win in spite of the misfortune and take advantage of the good fortune.


    The bad teams will still lose in spite of receiving the good fortune and the misfortune will only pile on.

    ReplyDelete
  15. 2-0 to Liverpool.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I don't have a problem with Balotelli starting.


    In fact, I thought he offered as much as anyone in the final third the other day. He made some nice runs. Held up the ball well, and dribbled well in tight spaces.


    But he should be playing up top with Sterling as a pair.

    ReplyDelete
  17. my prediction, a hard fought 1-0 win to LFC.

    ReplyDelete
  18. It has got nothing to do with Balo selling shirts. You are just trying to find excuses.


    FSG did not ask Rodgers or the transfer committee to sign Balotellli. Who is the club? Who agreed to sign Balotelli?

    ReplyDelete
  19. Can't argue with it being a failure. I would say trying to blow Hitler up and bolloxing it up fits the description a touch more like.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Feeling sorry for him.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Because everything is his fault and anything else is exoneration in the monochrome world.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Can anyone come forward and tell me this is a team which will win trophies? And how much more money on top of the £215m that has already been spent over the last three years still needs to be added?

    ReplyDelete
  23. Gerrard is leaving, it does not matter what Rodgers does with him at this point. He will get a massive send off in the very last game of the season.


    Pity he does not have an EPL medal to show for all the times he dragged us out of the sh!te.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I never imagined the day you'd feel sorry for Rodgers! :)


    (Note: I'm kidding)

    ReplyDelete
  25. Let's just hope they play well

    ReplyDelete
  26. So wasteful from set pieces this season

    ReplyDelete
  27. I think we will get to know the fate of BR after the end of the season.

    ReplyDelete
  28. But Logan knows now.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Logan - can you just give it a break. Look at you - the game is on and you are more interested in engaging with someone on this website to, once again, argue your case for why Rodgers should be out. We get it!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Just ignore him mate, he has been stuck on the same record since day 1, nothing will ever change.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Unlucky- have we actually scored from a corner this season?

    ReplyDelete
  32. so listening to 5 Live and apparently Sterling is having another poor game so far.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Skrtel header against gunners

    ReplyDelete
  34. so listening to 5 Live and apparently Sterling is having another poor game so far.

    Also well done to those Liverpool fans not making the journey down in protest against the outrageous ticket prices... £50 quid

    ReplyDelete
  35. Do people realize that we have a interchanging attack, with players free to move about and switch positions in the front 3. Why do some people continue to infer that Balotelli's pathetic performances are somehow due to being played up top on his own and it's Rodgers fault. Rodgers deserves plenty of blame through the season but constantly blaming him for Balotelli is not warranted at all.

    Even if Rodgers asked him to stay up top on his own, Balotelli doesn't have the discipline anyway. You can see him dropping deep or moving to the sides, and Sterling is more advanced than him in a lot of situations. So there is no way he is a lone striker. In any case, he's a professional and he's a striker, so he should be able to adapt in the year since joining, but he doesn't care to learn. He's 100% to blame when he's duly shown the door this summer.

    ReplyDelete
  36. And that would have been a neat goal.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Actually that's incorrect.


    He made a very strong case about how he was Rodgers' biggest supporter last year when we finished second and challenging for a title.


    Not so much now that we're in 5th.

    ReplyDelete
  38. shame to see Emre Can wasted in defense.

    ReplyDelete
  39. So Skrtel in the centre of a back three only having to head or clear the ball (that is all) from danger compared to having to defend in a back four = accident waiting to happen.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Go and get yourself a glass from the cupboard and fill it with water or similar, honestly, you will be able to fill it past the hallway mark.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Do you say anything else?

    ReplyDelete
  42. You agree with me :-)

    ReplyDelete
  43. here we go again 1 - 0 to hull

    ReplyDelete
  44. rodgers is an idiot, can at rb is worse than my granny there!

    ReplyDelete
  45. As a matter of a fact, I do.

    ReplyDelete
  46. So almost everyone in the world knows
    Can is not a full back, allen is not a defensive midfielder and Balotelli is not a lone striker. But all knowing rodgers knows best. #Rodgersout and if u still in the delusion that he deserves time then u have resigned to the fact that lfc should not be winning trophies or signing worldclass players because that's what's gonna happen if he is "given time" to destroy everything his predecessors have built.

    ReplyDelete
  47. There goes my prediction.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Can't keep a clean sheet every game.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Yes yes, almost £120m spent, square pegs round holes.

    ReplyDelete
  50. rodgers out!!!

    ReplyDelete
  51. I think I am 100% correct with my summary unless you want to prove me wrong.


    Skrtel was in NOMANSLAND.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Why are we playing so poorly... Does this team not want champions league football ... Feels like the start of the season all over again and I thought that was behind us

    ReplyDelete
  53. Bugger, don't want to get drawn into an argument, my fault. - You're 100% right about everything.
    We will win this game.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Ok then. Good night.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Who do you support Logan? I know you 'follow' Liverpool, but who do you actually support?

    ReplyDelete
  56. I support Liverpool Football Club. The team I have been supporting for more than 2 decades.

    ReplyDelete
  57. What do people think Balotelli is a lone striker. We have a dynamic, interchanging front 3 and Balotelli is always roaming around the field. He's a professional and is well-paid but is not interested in learning to expand his game. I just don't get why people still excuse him and somehow blame Rodgers instead? Incredible. Rodgers in guilty of buying the misfit, that's for sure. But he's given him his chances.

    ReplyDelete
  58. These players do not appear to playing for Brendan and it shows.
    They don't appear to believe in his philosophy whatever that is.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Rodgers is a very good salesman. FSG have figured him out.

    ReplyDelete
  60. A few weeks back I read a report about a dressing room bustup between Rodgers and the players and that he has lost the dressing room . we're there any truth in that because we are def not playing as a team at the moment ...

    ReplyDelete
  61. Death by football.

  66. Yes, and he must have had you fooled last year when we finished second.


    But he fools you no more!

  68. My post keeps on going for moderation...

    ReplyDelete
  69. Balotelli is an absolute waste of oxygen don't give me he prefers playing as a pair up front cause it's a bs. He only likes playing with a strike partner is because he's lazy and he had one less marking him.

    ReplyDelete
  70. Drown your sorrows. Rodgers to the rescue!

    ReplyDelete
  71. Johnson's best game thus far 4-5 forward runs, Ibe terrible goes to right every time when dribbling defender waits for him every time, Balo disinterested, and at least Lovren is spraying fine passes and is not to blame for a goal- or is he? Rodgers is dead meat

    ReplyDelete
  72. I suppose we won't dream to blame Balotelli for that one. Balotelli kept all the Hull players onside - Skrtel correctly ran out along with everyone else bar Balotelli. And just before that, Balotelli shrieks a header from the original corner. But it's Rodgers fault, right?

    ReplyDelete
  73. Soon as he gets the ball he slows play down to walking pace hull gets settled drops deep easy to mark and that's when he's not offside, hope he gets sold this season

    ReplyDelete
  74. Jesus the guys 19 years old and only just come in the team..

    ReplyDelete
  75. Just what I needed a football emetic

    ReplyDelete
  76. Balotelli is the least of our problems

    ReplyDelete
  77. He has no one up there with him.


    It's one on three.


    What would you like him to do? Attack three defenders by himself?

    ReplyDelete
  78. I'm going to get pelters but I'd rather we finish 8th and not in the Europa league so if we lose I wont shed any tears

    ReplyDelete
  79. 180 page dossier containing the words "Death by Football"


    £215m pounds 3 years later and FSG are reading through that dossier again with unlimited supply of tissues.

    ReplyDelete
  80. Could have fooled me. The guy who's more interested in trying to be proved right, than wishing for Liverpool to win their games.

    ReplyDelete
  81. What the #### is Balo up to ,
    he misses a sitter after an excellent run by Johnson
    and plays Dawson on side for Hull goal

    ReplyDelete
  82. Still wasteful and useless tonight but maybe proves me wrong in second half... Only Sterling is more terrible

    ReplyDelete
  83. I was actually thinking about this the other day.


    Do we really want Europa next year?

    ReplyDelete
  84. Lovren told Balo to move forward seconds before the goal came but he was 2 slow to respond and they scored. Damn. Where is the attacking mentality of lfc, it's just pedestrian at best....

    ReplyDelete
  85. If it's Rodgers we would not get past the group so doesn't change a lot.

    ReplyDelete
  86. Cannot blame BR for Balo's poor performance.

    ReplyDelete
  87. Balotelli has said he's not a lone striker because he doesn't like working hard working the line making runs he's just lazy nothing to do with his ability

    ReplyDelete
  88. Of course you are going to say that. We won many games last season. Where have you been? 6 comments?

    ReplyDelete
  89. But you were his biggest fan last year!


    Was that not your claim?


    He presented the dossier years ago.


    I take it that you have now "seen the light".

    ReplyDelete
  90. Its not Lovren's fault right? For the sake of argument?

    ReplyDelete
  91. Like I said, he is a great salesperson. His dossier will not help him with his next job interview. That is for sure!

    ReplyDelete
  92. I can understand why some people get annoyed with you as you seem to revel in the misfortunes even as they are happening,


    You are probably right about some things but less is sometimes more

    ReplyDelete
  93. Are you watching the game today?

    ReplyDelete
  94. Something you're not known for eh?

    ReplyDelete
  95. So why bother to respond?

    ReplyDelete
  96. Not all of my posts go for moderation. Even Orme complains about the same thing.

    ReplyDelete
  97. yes, why ? do you think we would get past group stage in the Europa league with Rodgers ? because i don't. So not a lot of strenght left

    ReplyDelete
  98. For a guy who comments non-stop on this website, you sure dont know how to defend your argument. You state your opinion and when someone challenges you to defend/elaborate, you either ignore them or post the same opinion over and over again.

    ReplyDelete
  99. Do you ever understand?

    ReplyDelete
  100. BR did not pick Balo. In fact, the committee picked the team for Rodgers today!

    ReplyDelete
  101. not a lot of strenght lost in the EL*

    ReplyDelete
  102. "I know it's in Texas, probably in Tennessee that says, 'Fool me once, shame on ... shame on you. Fool me... You can't get fooled again!"

    ReplyDelete
  103. You say he's a great salesperson. But you don't believe he's able to sell players on coming here.


    So is he a great salesperson, or are FSG just suckers?


    You can't have it both ways, Logan.

    ReplyDelete
  104. Rodgers is going to win the Champions League with LFC! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  105. No, the defense moved up, except Balo. Either way they are one up sadly.

    ReplyDelete
  106. He has coutinho behind him sterling ends close to him he's never on his bogus remark he needs to making runs trying to create space for those near him but does nothing drops deep creating no space for anyone, he's the biggest problem with us going forward

    ReplyDelete
  107. yep and then he's going to win the world cup with England !

    ReplyDelete
  108. Looking forward to that!

    ReplyDelete
  109. Why bother watching something that you have no belief in?


    You don't believe that the team would have any chance with Rodgers at the helm. So why would you waste your own time watching a team that you surely believe will be unsuccessful.


    I don't mind pessimism or realism. But you already think the team will lose NEXT YEAR when you don't know who the manager is or what the team will look like.

    ReplyDelete
  110. How long do you guys think before Rodgers changes things and mkes a change or changes?

    ReplyDelete
  111. Rodgers was appointed 3 years ago. FSG can now see right through him.

    ReplyDelete
  112. he's probably waiting the extra-time...

    ReplyDelete
  113. Go have a look at how many comments I have made my friend. I do not have to pretend.

    ReplyDelete
  114. He's moonlighting as the invisible man?

    ReplyDelete
  115. Haha yeah probably to eat up some time to stop hull from scoring and keeping the scoreline respectable

    ReplyDelete
  116. Why can't you just answer the question?

    "So is he a great salesperson, or are FSG just suckers?"

    In my opinion, your lack of an answer means that you're saying the owners are suckers.

    Which in that case means that you don't think Rodgers is the problem. You think the owners are problem. After all, if they fire Rodgers, who's to say they won't get suckered again.

    ReplyDelete
  117. And you subsequently proved his point with your response.

    ReplyDelete
  118. Then he can bring on Lambert!


    :)

    ReplyDelete
  119. of course he has. You been watching our sh!te performance?

    ReplyDelete
  120. Rodgers will be sacked.

    ReplyDelete
  121. I get too frustrated with W U Ms like you and delete my account from time to time. I'm as disappointed as anyone about this season, but I still look forward to each game and watch it intently, supporting my team. Yes, we need major changes, and Rodgers should probably go, but no need to revel in it.

    ReplyDelete
  122. You can't/won't answer the question.

    ReplyDelete
  123. Couldn't agree with a comment more.

    ReplyDelete
  124. I do not have to confirm my support for this club. I support Liverpool Football Club and the mediocrity that is being dished up at this point should in no shape or form be accepted any longer.

    ReplyDelete
  125. What does that have to do with his or my comment? Nothing.


    What did your original comment about"go have a look" have to do with his comment? Nothing.


    In other words, you are simply reinforcing what he said. That you don't know how to defend your argument. And when you are challenged to elaborate you change the subject, ignore the point, or just post the same thing over and over and over again.

    ReplyDelete
  126. Rogers deserves to be sacked end of story, even if we had of one the FA Cup he would deserved to be sacked. And Logan has point
    how could B Rodgers sell Agger and Reina for Peanuts? When they are both better than what we currently have at club
    How can B Rodgers waste £30.5M on strikers that do not score? F Balotelli, F Borini and

    ReplyDelete
  127. He doesn't need to say it for everyone to know he works best in a pair. Now he's actually working hard and pressing. 4 strikers this fraud of a coach has bought and we cannot seem to be able to to score. All of a sudden he's forgot that the reason we did so well last year was because he played two strikers I'm not saying any of the strikers are on par with the sas but I'm sick of the drab no organisation kind of football we've been playing.

    ReplyDelete
  128. I have been on this site for ages. Even before my current profile name.


    I do not have to prove myself to anyone. Go have a look at the sh!te that is being served up mate.


    Rodgers next season all the way! I think not.

    ReplyDelete
  135. Rodgers out ...

  136. No urgency exactly the same all season. same old same old story

    ReplyDelete
  137. You sit and pray for a goal yet Balotelli gets to start the match when even Borini will provide more movement!


    Everything is A ok.

    ReplyDelete
  138. Skrtel ha ha. Brilliant defender :-0

    ReplyDelete
  139. Skrtel has also stopped two clear cut chances on his own this half, obviously though you would rather stick the boot in than credit Joe Allen with his good work covering.

    ReplyDelete
  140. The Abyzmal and Comical Transfer Committee and B Rodgers needs to be shipped out with the 11 dead wood average players we have at club and one world class player who does not suit style of current side.

    ReplyDelete
  141. I made it clear, Skrtel in a back 3 having the job of clearing and heading the ball away from danger compared to having him in a back four and expecting him to defend are 2 totally different situations.


    Good night.

    ReplyDelete
  142. A season to forget. Zero positives.

    ReplyDelete
  143. another must win game....gone down the pan

    ReplyDelete
  144. Get ready for the mantra- I thought we were outstanding, just needed that wee bit of luck, as I said we will keep going- blah blah blah

    ReplyDelete
  145. Balo is the problem !

    ReplyDelete
  146. My team was outstanding!

    ReplyDelete
  147. Everytime we have needed a result we have bottled it. And in all them games B Rodgers has played his Love Child J Clueless Allen.
    Games we needed result: Basel Home
    Man United Home
    Arsenal Away
    Aston Villa at Wembley
    Hull Away Tonight
    See pattern

    ReplyDelete
  148. I think we will all remember this poor performance as the one that cost BR his job.

  149. This dossier thing was it the same one that was used to start a war Iraq

  150. The only thing you've made clear this evening is that you're a bit of a Piddington.
    Bitterly disappointed, well played Hull.

  151. Top 4 now officially over for those delusional enough to believe we can still qualify.

  152. Toothless Liverpool. Awful and it's all Rodgers fault.

    ReplyDelete
  153. QPR Ski Palace Stoke = zero points okay then 1 point

    ReplyDelete
  154. Remind me again how much sterling wants ... He was woeful tonight . So many poor performances only coutinho showed up ... This is beyond depressing

    ReplyDelete
  155. Brenda Rogers - dead woman walking..

    ReplyDelete
  156. Logan - what is the point in saying 'Good Night' in this comment? It is yet more antagonism from you, and I am sick of it. I'm also sick of you posting the same thing over and over and over again (i.e. gleefully slagging off Rodgers with snide, pointless, non-constructive comments as if you deliriously enjoy Liverpool's demise. Criticise Rodgers by all means, but 80% of your comments about him do not promote debate, and are just one-line snipes.

    Your comments are welcome here, and you make good points, but you need to take a look at your posting style, and stop deliberately antagonising.

    I don't want to hear excuses - just moderate your posting style, or face a permanent ban. You know exactly what I'm talking about.

    ReplyDelete
  157. It is the Committees fault as well as Ayre and FSG.


    Rodgers needs the red carpet treatment.

    ReplyDelete
  158. Did you think of that all by yourself?

    ReplyDelete
  159. Rodgers out

    ReplyDelete
  160. Aye that Francis Balotelli's been rubbish

    ReplyDelete
  161. Can someone check this, when was the last time our team conceded first and still went ahead and won the game? I don't think we have this season, and if so maybe one or two games. Also, how many times have we conceded first and lost?

    ReplyDelete
  162. Was Allen his love child from his first marriage, from his current g/f or from a trip to the ladies..

    ReplyDelete
  163. Jaimie, why do other posters get away with calling me a toddler?

    ReplyDelete
  164. haha..good one

    ReplyDelete
  165. Speechless....just speechless. How does a tactician of BR's repute play the same tactics that cost us points on the weekend against a Hull team fighting for survival. Fair play to Hull but we never once looked like scoring. If I didn't know better, I'd think BR's offering to put up the money for his own coffin

    ReplyDelete
  166. Patheticn absolutely pathetic it just seems when the pressure is on and the big games (this was a big game in the scheme of things ) Rodgers just bottles it . It's so frustrating he has to go surely ...

    ReplyDelete
  167. He's barely played over the past 6 months.


    Sterling has been the main striker since mid-December.


    There are many culprits in this season, and Balotelli is one of them. Not the biggest culprit nor the sole culprit.

    ReplyDelete
  168. I agree that was disgraceful and totally indefensible - I know some quite sensible toddlers

    ReplyDelete
  169. Maybe we need to start a scandalous rumour if BR now does not have the decency to RESIGN.

    Still the best heh Brenda?

    ReplyDelete
  170. To the guys who say BR should stay, give me one good reason. And last season was not him, it was all SAS.

    ReplyDelete
  171. Agger and Reina were wage casualties. Reina especially.

  181. As at now. U really get the feeling it's going to get much worse before it gets better. I'm with logan all the way. Who really looked forward to watching this game? I wasn't that keen to be honest and not to mention every thing going on off field about the ticket prices.

  183. You're missing the point then.


    My comments and his Kopa's comments have nothing to do with proving yourself.


    It's simply that if you want to debate, debate.


    If you take a stance, stick with it, and reinforce it with facts, opinions, and information.


    But repeating the same thing over and over again or simply changing/ignoring the subject because you don't like the answer is not a debate. It's trolling.
