Rodgers bemoans Liverpool luck

Brendan Rodgers felt his Liverpool team were unfortunate to be restricted to a 0-0 draw against West Ham on Sunday.

Liverpool enjoyed plenty of possession but were unable to break down a resilient Hammers team that came close to finding the breakthrough when Jack Collison's header was cleared off the line.

But Rodgers was left pointing to a questionable offside decision that denied Daniel Sturridge in the second half and would not criticise his players for the goalless draw that leaves them seventh.

"We obviously played very well," Rodgers told Sky Sports. "I thought some of our game today was very good.

"We had to control West Ham, coming off the back of a good result against West Brom, on the counter-attack and I thought we did that well.

"Offensively our drive and determination going forward was very good in our game. But you need the energy to keep persevering until you get the goal.

"Obviously when we did get the goal it was deemed offside and if you watch it again it was clearly onside so that was the bit of luck we needed to get the goal and open the game up.

"Unfortunately, it wasn't to be."

ow is the time for Allardyce to finally get a chance at a big club please. He is likely to have a number of great offers for his services this summer, but who will he choose? Will it be Liverpool, Real Madrid, Dortmund or Man City?

thought exactly this when the Match of the Day pundits were peddling this line. Is it really not okay for fans of a club to have some ambition these days then?
