The better chances certainly came our way during that period and the ball flashed across the Liverpool six-yard box on several occasions without a finishing touch being applied.
"Yes, definitely - and that is what is so disappointing," said Glenn afterwards. "We were inches off two or three goals in the first half and played very well. There was nothing wrong with the performance apart from throwing away the game."
Mauricio Taricco did net shortly after the break, but Liverpool responded with goals from Michael Owen, Emile Heskey and Steven Gerrard before Teddy Sheringham netted with four minutes left on the clock.
Heskey's header was a source of some frustration for the manager who says the goal was scored from an offside position.
"We were in control at 1-0 and gave two silly goals away. They were individual errors, no one means to make them but they've hurt us big time.
"We should have been able to hit them on the break but, very quickly, handed the momentum back to them by giving two stupid goals away.
"Heskey's goal was offside - I thought that from the bench and have watched it. It is a tight one, but is offside and that has gone against us.
"It was a very frustrating day. We played well enough to have won the game and came out with nothing."
Glenn Hoddle lamented the fact that the team did not capitalise on first half superiority against Liverpool on Sunday.
