Last season, I provoked a bit of controversy amongst the Liverpool fanbase by saying that Luis Suarez was the type of player who could create a chance from nothing only to miss it. Happily for Liverpool fans, and happily for those who enjoying watching magisterial players, he has put this knack behind him and become one of the most feared strikers in the league.
Today it is Rodgers that we need to question. He seems to have the ability to turn around a poor performance either by changing tactics or by substituting players. He has done this against Everton, Wigan, Udinese and - today - against Manchester United.
It takes a talented manager to spot mistakes and change appropriately. It takes a brave man to admit his mistakes and to acknowledge that he has been bested when the world is watching. He should get some credit for this.
He should, in equal measure, be criticised for consistently requiring to rectify those situations.
