Round Table Discussion - Liverpool 1-2 Man Utd

Well, what can you say?

Pre-match, both managers did us all proud. I was particularly pleased with Brendan Rodgers - he was duly statesmanlike.

The pre-game formalities were so moving I was welling up as I watched, I have to confess.

To the game.

It's horrible. I said to a mate this morning I thought Valencia would be the difference. First half, until the moment of Spearing-based deja vu from Shelvey, I thought we were excellent, but had our usual issue up top.

2nd half, a man light, I thought the introductions were largely spot on. Ball limpet with threat in Suso for the injured Borini, then Henderson with his bionic legs for a tiring Sterling (was he tiring?).

So - questions.

Is Suarez a problem? He can't seem to lay a ball off to a team mate.

Should he have been benched instead of Sterling when Henderson came on?

Did Suso grab his big chance?

Was the performance of our 10 testament to good work on the training ground?

Were the goals preventable?

Was Halsey the big difference in a way? Yes, Jonjo made it possible for him, but where was the consistency?

And, of course, most important of all, did the event do justice to the families and to the game in general? (It's easy to forget the context - thanks Mark Halsey.)

Over to you guys.
