It is never easy following a defeat in the Premier League for Liverpool fans and it is even harder today having gone down 3-1 to Hull City, a team which we need to be beating if we are to be taken seriously in the league.
There seems to be a lot of voices today lamenting Brendan Rodgers for the defeat. Yes, managers can get it wrong sometimes and against Hull, the Liverpool boss has to shoulder some blame for the defeat when it comes to lineups and tactics. Rodgers is not a bad manager at all but he simply got it wrong today.
After the match, Rodgers said that the side made too many mistakes. “We didn’t play well enough. The players are committed enough and they have been giving everything – but today, our quality [was lacking] and there were just too many individual mistakes,” said Rodgers.
Here are some of the comments from the disgruntled fans following the defeat and having a go at Rodgers. Is this warranted or the boss should be left alone?
Rodgers keeps breaking my heart…

@LFC rubbish opinion by Rodgers. His stupid 1-3-5-2 strategy + team selection really was the reason for the defeat. He should resign

Getting criticised as a plastic fan because I said Rodgers needs to take some of the blame today seems like some people are his love child

Love it when we concede 6 goals in two games. Rodgers doesn't have a clue who is best centre halfs are

Rodgers may or may not have got the team wrong but they should be good enough to beat Hull for fucks sake.

I am fast losing faith in Rodgers. We were awful against Arsenal, Everton and now Hull. His poor tactics away from home are costing us badly

So Mr Rodgers don't you dare say you were proud of the group today, wrong line up, wrong tactics wrong decisions & zero effort!#lfc
