The Jambos arguably enjoyed the lion's share of the chances and could have had a first-half penalty when James McPake slid in on Scott Robinson in the box.

McGlynn said afterwards: "We had the possession and opportunities. Hibs had their opportunities as well but for every one of theirs, we probably had two.

"I thought we played good football, tried to pass the ball, get it into good areas and were a bit unlucky because I think we deserved to win the game.

"We felt that we deserved a penalty in the first half as well. I've not seen it again so it's difficult to say, but it looked like that when Scott went for the ball the player went right through him.

"At the time, I felt it was a penalty. TV evidence might tell us something different but I just thought it was a penalty at the time."

his isn't directed at Van Gaal in particular, but, let's be honest, you don't have to be a tactical genius to beat Arsenal at the moment do you? I will say one thing...he put Van Persie on Monreal deliberately? Our Robin hardly had a touch did he? So did that really work? Hmmm....I'd stick to substituting Keepers (yes,yes, it was directed towards him in the end....)

hat a load of Bull***t. DiMaria hardly had a kick and they won because of a dodgy offside and a breakaway goal when Arsenal were chasing. Good luck to them they got their points but to try and claim this as some sort of tactical masterstroke is laughable, It was luck pure and simple.

he singular most disappointing aspect of the current malaise that Liverpool are experiencing is that F365 are not able to use the picture of Rodgers giving his troll smile. Brendan does a helluva good Hard Done By range though, especially in the rain, in fact he looks so forlorn you just want to say to the opposition Stop It, You're Killing Him!

Equating Rodgers To Hodgson. Oh Dear Me.

It's a Mailbox many will have been waiting. Brendan Rodgers gets a little bit of a stick, but there is at least praise for Manchester United,Van Gaal, Palace and Tottenham...

Oh Arsenal. Why Oh Why Oh Effing Why?

We have plenty of fallout from Arsenal's latest display of outrageous incompetence, plus the question of why every team seems to be getting worse. Plus, another Garcia ghost goal...
