Our assistant boss reasoned that Liverpool were fired up in their quest for a first win of the season, but such intentions were negated by the successful execution of our gameplan.
"To come here and get a result is no mean feat," boomed John. "Liverpool were an angry team and hungry because they were beaten in their first game against Chelsea, only got the draw against Villa and were determined to get a win at home.
"They came out all guns blazing, but we mastered it and our tactics were right. We had a sound game and early on we could have scored a couple of goals.
"We had a gameplan but, to be fair, they changed their's, which showed great respect to us. They changed to put someone on Jamie and put Gerrard as a holding player - a change of tactics after watching us play well against Leeds.
"For Liverpool to do that when we are away from home was a real compliment to us."
John Gorman was effusive in his assessment of the team's efforts after the securing of a point against Liverpool at Anfield.
