You had to tune in to Radio Merseyside to find that out?

You guys should tune in - Ronnie Goodlass is losing his temper with each caller, it truly is starting to feel like crisis.

Already looking on and I imagine the Swansea, West Ham and Huddersfield games at home are key between now and the end of the year, pick up a few draws elsewhere to get to that 20 point mark by Jan.

Mostly because they took their foot off the gas.

They walked through the middle of us first half.

Second half, they at least faced some friction and had to go wider and less direct.

He's not worked with many of the players before so it's understandable he's tried to go with players he has an idea about at this stage. We were just a bit too open at the start today, and didn't pay enough attention to how Leicester like to play.

Being 0-0 at 60 minutes would've been a good situation for us today.

Agree but if the likes of Vlasic Lookman and Sandro dont feature at all soon then I think hes making a big mistake.

Agree with Carragher that if we don't beat Watford that we look in trouble. A win there could change the landscape a bit. Still not ready to write Unsworth off. He's come into a difficult situation and had tough games.

Not panic stations yet (for me) but getting worrying.

Didn't do himself any favours today though. A point would have been a good result but we left ourselves open today.

They did still have a couple of really good chances though. We didnt have a single shot a pub keeper wouldnt save

Some things which I noticed today.

I know Williams and Jags are old but they were rarely troubled today by any of their attackers and I thought they contained them pretty well. Both the goals weren't their fault.

Gana and Davies are a disaster which has been mentioned before as they both lack positional sense and we looked better defensively when Beni came in the mix. I think one of Beni or big Morgs has to start every game and I think we miss someone like Barry in this team.

Taking off Lennon and Mirallas and replacing them with central players was bizarre and devoided us of any shape in the 2nd half. Even though we pressed them hard, we just didn't know what to do with the ball or create something which would put their defence under pressure. We just lack players in the middle of the park who could bring other players in the game like Arteta or Pienaar, even Barkley did a better job than our current players.

With the players we have with us, we just cannot afford to go behind as we don't have enough quality to break open any kind of defence. So I think we should ensure that we keep our defence tight and then hope that the game is more open at the other end for our attackers to do something about it. It's pretty much game over for us the time we go behind.

Rhino HAS to pack the midfield, it's got to be ugly out there.  If we concede a goal in the first half we are instantly battling for a point at best.

1-0 wins are what we need and we need them now.  We are soooo far away from having the luxury of trying to play attractive football.  DOGS OF WAR, that's it.

I'd play Schneiderlin and Beni together, see if that tightens things up.  Surely Gana and Davies merit dropping after today.

Fair enough but still he needed to be a bit cuter. Keep it tight, contain the threat and then...err...bring on the set piece specialist.
