No real out ball with only one up front, although couldn't fault the effort of those that started. When you looked at the Liverpool starting team thought, hey we have a chance here but then saw our starting eleven and my hopes faded!
JWP totally invisible, did he miss Romeu or is his mind elsewhere??

Seemed to go missing after scoring the first goal. Redmond and Minamino's goals were both great shots. The headed goal a bit of a duffer to let in.
Thought our shape looked unbalanced, Tsimikas was left unmarked for most of the second half as the back 5 slid across and Eli seemed to tuck in. Several fraught conversations between KWP and Eli.
Did the crowd turn on McCarthy seemed a lot of booing at the same time as his poor kicks? If so, not too sure what it was meant to achieve.
Thought the subs came too late. Once again reactive rather than proactive.
Lyanco and Salisu looked good, Diallo I don't think is going to make it - looked a passenger and his reactions are still too slow. Broja looked better but a 20 year old lone striker was always going to struggle.
Oh well, we're safe.

No Left back then why not put KWP there like you have all season when you should not have and play Valery a right back in his position.
Redmond had a great game but he is not a defender.
Broja has done nothing since the transfer hype in January so why is he in ahead of Adams. Diallo ahead of Romeu ??? Where do I begin on that one, Romeu should imo be our captain.
Still one more day out and another season will be done. The board needs to have a clear out and No not Ralph, but his back room staff, how the hell can all our first team coaches be ex goalkeepers.
Try and attract Steven Davis back from Rangers as a player coach, mainly for a coach but he would not let us down as a sub to help change games, that is if Ralph made a substitution.
Give Ralph the backing for the signings he wants and let’s go again, if nothing changes after that then before the winter transfer window then the big sackin must come.

With Ralph in charge & the current squad we cannot survive at that level for much longer.
Most (not all) other Premier Clubs have progressed while Saints have regressed.
We only survived by the skin of our teeth this season thanks to a couple of other teams faltering.
FEAR is the problem at St Marys, Ralph does not believe in himself or the squad.
Even after 37 games he just does not know his best team or best system to play.
Ralph, listen, it's simple play your best players in their best position, stop trying to be too clever, most of our players struggle at this level playing in their best position so they have no chance if played out of position.
Ralph set the team up to play Liverpool assuming we were going to get beat so attempted minimise the damage by playing deep & after we scored go even deeper.
Suicidal tactics against the quality Liverpool have.
You could see & feel the FEAR in Ralph's face & over the season he has installed that FEAR into the players.
They are now afraid to receive the ball, they are afraid they will make a mistake.
Opposition can sense & smell the FEAR in Saints so go for our jugular.
Apparently we have Goalkeeping coaches plus Dead Ball situation coaches. We'll get rid of them because they are not doing their job. McCarthy getting beaten at his near post again. Then conceding again from a corner, What , our smallest player JWP (bless him) trying to mark Liverpools tallest player, come on you wouldn't see that at the park on a Sunday morning.
Thank god the season is all but finished & let's hope next season gives us a fearless manager & a team full of fearless players.
