Never thought we would win today and it's no disgrace to lose to the current European Champions and one of the 2 best teams in our Division.
Still, it's disappointing how often we gave the ball away and never really looked like getting back into the game once we went behind.

If we play like we did in the second half yesterday then against Brighton,we will get "tonked"
I think it highlighted just how much we are missing a centre forward with pace but they are few and far between, especially on our budget. We have to accept we were second best and move on. I think sometimes people forget we were playing the European Champions.

The long ball was a complete waste against Van Dijk & Matip but a leopard can’t change it’s spots. We needed balls played up to feet with Barnes and Wood coming off their markers and a third man running into space behind. Trouble being they are a truly class act and they were on their game. We were never going to win in those circumstances. Take it on the strong jaw, recover over the next two weeks and move on to a match we need to win. We must stop this winless run getting into their heads.

Let’s get real, move on, enjoy the rest of the season and admire the progress the club has made and continues to make.

When you look back at the game, you’ll see we made a valiant effort with the means we have, it is no blemish to be outclassed by a team of such quality
When you only have a plan to hoof the ball up front towards a Liverpool defender who has recently been voted player of the year by football writers, PFA and now Uefa you can't expect anything else
It's not just two teams on a different level it's also two managers
