In fairness it's unlucky because I'm sure he was trying to play the ball, but at the end of the day it's reckless and it is a red card. If a lad pulled his hurley in a reckless manner, and clocked a lad on the head, even though he was swinging for the ball, he'd get a red too.

Plus even if he'd a won the ball it would've been a free out to citee. Saying that I hope it's reduced!

Wasn't Nani sent off for something similar and I don't even think he made contact?

Nani against Real? Caught your man in the midriff, only slight difference was that Nani possibly wasn't aware he was even there. Don't remember much sympathy for Nani on here either from opposing fans..

Oh yeah that was it... Yeah he hadn't a clue where the opposition player was but it was deemed dangerous play regardless.

I didn't let on here but I sent a sympathy card to Nani after that and the time Caragher made him cry..,p***k never responded!

Nani did make contact - and to tie a bow on that story - it was Arbeloa he "tackled"

I'd be surprised if it gets rescinded or even reduced. It would send out the message that it's OK to go for the ball studs up when an opponents head is there. Accident or not if someone gets seriously injured next time then the FA has encouraged it.

3 match ban is upheld
One of the games is a Carling Cup game the others are Leicester and Burnley. Time to move on from it now.
exactly, a good chance to get Ox-chamberlain a bit of game time and integrate Coutinho back into things.

Yip I agree, I never thought it would it would be reduced anyway (obviously I wished it was) but it deserves the 3 game ban in my opinion.

Play a front 3 of the Ox, Sturridge and Coutinho and let Mane play in the CL games. It'll be ok

So Karius is to start tomorrow night  :-[

Mignolet must need another rest, or else his back hurts picking the ball out of his net the last day.

I think Karius is going to be the Champions League Goalie for the season. All the way to the final so....
Not sure I like that idea. Not just because it's Karius but I don't like the idea of rotating goalkeepers at all unless maybe it's something like a Carling Cup game.

I agree. I think part of their defensive problems is they don't trust each other. You need a solid and predictable back 4 and keeper, and only rotate lesser games. You can rotate forwards a bit more, but the back 4 has to be a unit.

The Robertson situation is a bit strange.
He was obviously brought in because Liverpool had issues in the left back position.
He has started one game and was excellent , yet hasnt been used again.
No doubt Moreno has improved a bit from where he was, but he is still a liability and i dont think the rest of the defence trust him at all as part of that unit.

Has Moreno improved though? I still think he's all over the shop. His positional sense is like a startled pigeon.

A bit  :-\
But not enough to be starting in a team that has any sort of serious ambitions of wining things IMO

Robertson may not exactly be Franco Baresi defensively either, but he doesnt seem as scatterbrained and has a better end product in the attacking third

I was going to post the same about Robertson after the City game. It's strange the way he is being treated alright. Especially as you say he had a fine debut and has also played well for Scotland since.
I don't think Moreno has improved at all. Can't understand why he just doesn't play Milner left back if he doesn't fancy Robertson there yet.
Moreno is a headless chicken and seems to be getting a game off the back of his half decent performance against Munich in that pre season friendly.  Klopp said he was like having a new signing after that game..
