Dalglish Slams Liverpool Players
Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish has blasted his players after their 0-0 draw with Swansea City and has demanded their performances improve.
The Scot was left frustrated after his sides disappointing display, which was not helped with an excellent performance from goalkeeper Michel Vorm, who denied Luis Suarez and Glen Johnson late on.
Carroll missed an excellent chance within the first ten minutes and Dalglish admits the goal would have changed the game. Dalglish also stressed that he was disappointed with the level of performance from his side and was more from his players:
“If we had scored early on it might have changed the way the game went but we never scored so it is hypothetical,” said the Scot.
“No-one has ever in the history of football deliberately missed a chance.
“That is 10 times we have hit the post or the bar this season.
“Maybe if the chance goes in it may have changed the complexion of the game but as well as paying credit to Swansea we have to look at ourselves.”
“I think the performance was disappointing,” added the Reds boss.
“Swansea played the way we would have expected they would play but we didn’t play the way we expected to play. Anything that we were good at we certainly didn’t do too much of today.
“We are usually good at passing and moving and there was not a great deal of that and when we got it back we gave it away quickly.
“They had one chance in the second half when the boy (Mark Gower) put it over and Pepe made a save in the first half but we have to understand that level of performance isn’t acceptable.”
