Didn't see it, but from the sound of the way things went, 1-1 away to Porto was a very decent result!

Good result v Porto. We are at the Mickey Mouse end of the competition where you have to get the required 10 points.

Poor attacking display, didn't pass the ball enough. Bad start seemed to knock them back.

Porto were poor enough in the end and lacked quality up front. Pennant was a bit silly but we coped alright with out him.

RTE boys been a touch critical of Rafa's tatics. Mightn't be pretty at times but I think they will get better as the year goes on.

Overall fairly happy with the point in what is prob the toughest away tie of the group.

Shocking result for Chelsea. Will Maureen last past Christmas?

It was a poor performance tonight but a decent result. They didnt keep the ball well enough & Gerrard was brutal in my opinion.

Pennant acted like an absolute ball-bag all night and was deservedly sent-off

i think pennant just tries to chase every ball and make every tackle in an attempt to show willingness, he just got a bit carried away last nite... It was more over eagerness than anything else.

Decent result, not a very good performance. Porto played really well in the first 15/20 minutes, but while they owned the ball for most of the rest of the game they never really threatened. Liverpool had 3 half chances in the last quarter and could even have taken an undeserved win. After the first quarter, Liverpool's defence defended very well. But the distribution was awful and contributed to Porto having so much of the ball.

Aurelio looked in A1 condition when he came on, so he should see plenty of action in the upcoming games

I think last night shows that Alonso is a huge loss to Liverpool when he's not playing. There's no passing game without him on good form. The amount of times Super Steve gave the ball away cheaply was untrue.

A point is not really a bad result away from home, sure half a loaf is better than no bread at all!

Typical pennant though, he simply cant tackle (bit like paul scholes)

Gerrard didnt set the world on fire but confident Porto can be turned over at Anfield for sure.

Very lucky to get a point last night, poor attacking performance from Mascherano and stevie G, as for pennant a waste of space, needs a shave and a hair cut, just does'nt do it for me at all.

But a point away from home is a good result especially after the below par display

That is probably the hardest match in the group out of the way already though so there is not too much cause for concern.

We will take the point away from home after a poor showing.
But last night again showed that despite what Sky reckon Gerard isnt (and never will be in my opinion) a centre midfielder.
Mascherano isnt a creative player so it was up to Gerard to provide the guile which is needed in Europe. He doesnt have it.
Great engine for bursting into attacking positions, great heart, spectacular goals but no footballing brain.
Right back, right side of midfield or not on pitch at all

Have to laugh at George Hamilton creaming himself at the ovation Ronaldo received from the Sporting fans as he went off tonight. Nothing they haven't been doing at Anfield for decades (former players that is, not Ronaldo)

Bollix. Alonso will be a loss but with the amount of CM's we have it's a loss that can be dealt with. Agger on the other hand is a disaster. No harm to Hypia but he's done. Got turned over for his lack of speed against Porto and that will happen constantly. Just shows how dodgy it was not to get a decent back up to agger and Carra in the summer.
