Steward Downing was full of ifs and buts about their disappointing 0-0 draw at home against Swansea City.
Kenny Dalglish's side had their best spell in the opening 15 minutes, when they put the Swans under a lot of pressure early on. Carroll missed their best chance when his close range effort hit the crossbar following a good low cross to him at the far post.
Downing spoke about Vorm's brilliant saves to deny the likes of Suarez and Johnson, 'if' Carroll had scored that early chance and doubting the offside decision that ruled out Kuyt's late goal.
The left winger wasn't as honest about the game as his team-mate Agger was. He preferred to concentrate on his team's performance, and lack of quality shown, saying his team-mates looked like 'headless chickens'.
In fact the offside decision was spot on, and both teams wasted chances to win the game and on balance, a point was the fair result. Gower had our best chance to win it, but he skied a shot from just 12 yards. Reina also made an error after spilling a spot, but Graham was unable to take advantage of the goalkeeper's mistake.
"I think the goalkeeper has probably been their best player this season, which shows how well he`s done,"
"It was a brilliant save from Glen Johnson`s shot.
"It was disappointing to draw. We had chances and I`m not sure if Dirk Kuyt`s goal was offside or not. If Andy Carroll had scored with that early chance, it may have been a different game. Swansea might have had to change the way they played.
"Probably the pleasing thing for the manager and the team is that we are creating chances. But we`re not putting them away.
"We`ll just have to keep working on it and keep getting ourselves in the right positions and hopefully they`ll turn into goals soon.
"Swansea are a good footballing team and they`ve played well this season, but with no disrespect to them we need to be winning games like that at home if we want to get to where we want to be."
