The Derby Loss

Shipping out three goals without a reply, in a derby match yesterday, is very hard for any Liverpool to swallow. The image of Andy Johnson showing off his three right fingers and making a zero using his left thumb and second finger is very annoying. It is uncharacteristically Liverpool to concede so many goals.

So, where does the problem lie? Something is clearly not rigth in the defence this season. The defenders were still the same, the right back, the centre backs, with exception the left back. The midfielders are also no different, it is the same players from last season. Momo Sissoko, Steven Gerrard, Luis Garcia and Xabi Alonso. They are four of the first-teamers of the last season. Is this due to a different way of playing the game? Perhaps Rafa Benitez wants the team to do different thing this season? Were the players' mind was not in the game? Lack of idea, creativity, lack of confidence? Was it due to mistakes in defence? Basic mistakes according to Rafa?

Whatever it is, better results are needed very soon, because many important games are coming up thick and fast. Here's hoping for the better.
