The Red's manager, Roy Hodgson, has not taken the blame well and instead has turned the blame onto the fans.

He said the fans haven't been supportive enough. After the Wolves game he said, "Ever since I came here the famous Anfield support hasn't really been there.

"I have to hope the fans will become supporters because we need support - we are not deliberately losing."

Not deliberately losing? They could have fooled me.

Even before they went behind in their last game, the Anfield crowd were singing songs in praise of previous managers, including the likes of Kenny Dalglish. They were also doing ironic and patronising chants towards Their current boss, with things like, "Hodgson for England".

Hodgson tried to show a better side to him by saying "It was a sad way to end 2010 and a sad way to play the first game for a few weeks in front of our own supporters.

"We let them down and they showed us what they thought of it - and I would probably have done the same.

"Maybe we are lacking quality and lacking confidence, and the negativity doesn't help.

 "The players are not getting on the ball for fear of making mistakes."

In football you need to take risks to win. If the players are "not getting on the ball for fear of making mistakes", then of course the outcome is going to be bad.

Liverpool need to pull to pull their socks up and start playing the football we remember them for. It was not many seasons ago when they were at the top of Europe, winning the champions league.

Things need to get better, or the media's exaggeration about them getting relegated could soon become a possibility.
