Ever since the final whistle blew, Liverpool fans and some neutrals have been up in arms about Chelsea's tactics. At last someone from their camp has come out and spoken complete sense and it's about time!

I had written my take on the game first and foremost here followed by my take on the whole anti football debate yesterday here. 

Last night sitting watching Monday Night Football on SKY TV I was intrigued to hear Carragher's view on the way we played and to say I was more than surprised was an under statement.

He said:

"I've done it playing for Liverpool.

I remember going to Barcelona in 2001 in the UEFA Cup and we got a 0-0. We did exactly the same as what Chelsea did yesterday, we went there for our clean sheet. Johan Cruyff said after the game we were a disgrace to football.

Let's not forget that in the seventies and eighties when Liverpool went away they'd go there and do a job to try and get a 0-0. At times they'd play it back to Ray Clemence and slow the game down.

I remember with Rafa Benitez playing against Chelsea, we played them at their own game. We slowed the game down, played direct football, never got caught on the counter-attack and never risked playing a ball into Stevie (Gerrard) or Xabi Alonso, as they had Duff, Robben and Drogba for the counter-attack.

There was frustration after the game. We heard Liverpool fans afterwards on radio phone-ins and whatever, but you've got to not be complaining so much about Chelsea and think you may come up against this again - how are we going to go about it and try to get the result?

You can't complain and say 'we don't play like that'. We've done it before and been successful at it.

You can't complain. Lots of teams have done it, we've done it, so get on with it and try to find a way to fix it."

Maybe now those Liverpool fans and football fans in general that are still moaning to anyone that will listen will realise that Carragher has re-iterated what I said yesterday. It's a results business.
