Liverpool v Blackpool highlights – Reds into relegation danger!

Roy Hodgson’s nightmare start to his career as Liverpool manager got even worse yesterday as newly promoted Blackpool beat them at Anfield. Can it get any worse for the Reds?

Yes it can! Fernando Torres was taken off injured before the game even got going, and then Luke Varney (who?) and Charlie Adam put Liverpool two goals behind before half-time.

Hodgson made his feelings clear after the game: “Things are looking really, really bleak.” he said. “It has been said that if you are in the bottom three, you are in a relegation fight, and I would have to go along with that.

“I’m not thinking too much about relegation with 31 games left. My concerns are that we are not playing to our full potential, or are only doing it in periods. In the first half we were punished for a lacklustre display.

“We had the ball as much as they did but didn’t do anywhere near enough with it to satisfy my demands, the club’s demands or the players’ demands on themselves.”
