You could see by the grimace on Steven Gerrard’s face that he was going to miss this spot kick, even before he took it he looked like he was about to have a heart attack and whereas a goal may well have energized Liverpool into looking for a leveller a miss consigned the club to yet another humbling defeat. The entire match at Ewood Park could be seen as a microcosm of what has been a woeful season for the Anfield side and their supporters. Some solace may be found in the imminent sacking of Roy Hodgson though.
