More defensive nerves to come as Liverpool look to bounce back vs. Hull

Former Liverpool defender Steve Nicol calls out his club for playing with a lack of heart and determination against Real Madrid.

Managers can often struggle to bring their players back down to earth after big European nights. It's felt that a team can sometimes turn its nose up at the bread and butter of domestic football after the caviar of the Champions League.

Brendan Rodgers should not find motivation much of a problem after Wednesday's hideous mauling from Real Madrid. The history books will record a 3-0 defeat, which might not look so bad on paper. In the memory banks of those who saw it, an entirely different impression...

Outclassed Liverpool no longer on same level as Real Madrid

Former Liverpool defender Steve Nicol calls out his club for playing with a lack of heart and determination against Real Madrid.

LIVERPOOL -- The pre-match entertainment was seductively good. They were playing the tape of one of Anfield's greatest European nights as an appetiser. Liverpool's television channel broadcast a favourite programme, replaying the 2009 night they beat the mighty Real Madrid 4-0.

And that, frankly, represented the highlight of Liverpool's evening. After the nostalgia, the here and now. After one historic humiliation, a record-breaking reverse. Only Alvaro Arbeloa, a winner on both occasions, could...

Dirk Kuyt en route to Southampton, Liverpool's summer spree falls flat

The ESPN FC crew give their take on the war of words between QPR's Adel Taarabt and Harry Redknapp over Taarabt's fitness.
Netherlands international Dirk Kuyt could be making a move from Fenerbahce to Southampton and the Premier League in January.

Wait, the transfer window is closed? That's news to the Transfer Talk crew. There are still plenty of transfer-related rumours around the world.

Kuyt could fly in Southampton

Just in from The Mirror, Dirk Kuyt might be making his way to the Premier League from Turkish League powerhouse Fenerbahce during the winter window.

Ronald Koeman is overseeing an impressive start to Southampton's season so far this season, with his squad sitting third in the table with 16 points in their first eight games....

Player Ratings: Liverpool bottom out in Champions League loss to Real Madrid

Former Liverpool defender Steve Nicol calls out his club for playing with a lack of heart and determination against Real Madrid.

Liverpool's inability to defend once again proved costly as Real Madrid cruised to a 3-0 win at Anfield to all but guarantee their qualification from the group and give the Merseysiders plenty to do if they are to avoid being eliminated. It was a humbling experience for the home side, who began brightly but fell behind to a superb strike by Cristiano Ronaldo before a brace from Karim Benzema finished them off before halftime.

Brendan Rodgers' men look completely over matched in the Champions League...

Three Points: Liverpool vs. Real Madrid

Real Madrid were dominant in Anfield as they march on and keep their perfect record on their quest to a Champions League title defence.

LIVERPOOL, England -- A trio of observations on Real Madrid's 3-0 win vs. Liverpool in the Champions League.

1. Holders outclass Liverpool

There was to be no famous European night at Anfield. Not, at least, for Liverpool. This time, they had to accept a sound beating from Real Madrid. Their 100 percent winning record against the 10-time European champions was dissolved by an opponent who oozed superiority in each area of the field.

Brendan Rodgers' team still have a chance of escaping Group...

Liverpool's Mario Balotelli swaps shirts with Real Madrid's Pepe at half-time

The ESPN FC crew talk Mario Balotelli trading shirts with Pepe at half-time and debate whether or not Liverpool lose their attacking flair with Balotelli on the field.

Liverpool certainly had bigger problems as they trudged off the Anfield pitch 3-0 down at half-time to Real Madrid.

However, it's doubtful that too many of their fans will have enjoyed seeing Mario Balotelli exchange shirts with Real Madrid's Pepe as the two went down the tunnel.

Of course, it may be that the Italian international simply knew that it would be his last opportunity to play "swapsies".

After all, by the...
