Liverpool 3 Aston Villa 0: Shocking first half display

The first half was the worst half of football I have seen for a while. There was no determination, no fight and I'm sorry to say this, but it didn't look like the players had any idea.

Now, that has to firmly rest at the feet of the manager and tonight, he's getting it from me, transitional season or not and most of you will know I'm all for giving him a chance, but that half of football was simply unacceptable.

The second was better, we gave ourselves a little more space and we held on to the ball well, but at the same time, we did very little with it.

It was just, I don't know, a game that lacked any real direction and I know he hasn't had long and we are seeing much more passing, which is a good step, but we need to see a little bit more now.

I hope it comes and I believe it will, if he is given the time, but I'm not sure how much time the natives will allow him if he doesn't start winning soon, because there is little fight.

Post-mortem tomorrow but in the meantime, please vote for your man of the match below.
