Brendan Rodgers: "Whether Mario's best is good enough longer term, that remains to be seen."
Brendan Rodgers says he has spoken to Mario Balotelli and told him about the culture of English football. What is acceptable, what isn't
#CFC striker Diego Costa has now been released from hospital after requiring treatment for a mystery bug.
Mario Balotelli may even have known/suspected he was being taken off at half-time. Although that is unlikely.
Coutinho swapped shirts with Oscar and Sakho with Eto'o at half-time v #CFC last season. Clearly wrong but Balotelli a convenient scapegoat
One thing to say about Balotelli, he wasn't looking to swap shirts. Pepe sought him out. Story shouldn't detract from #LFC deficiencies
I was standing next to Jimmy Case when Balotelli swapped shirts at half-time. Should've seen the look on his face
Brendan Rodgers says he was not aware Mario Balotelli had swapped shirts at half-time. Tactical substitution
2) Liverpool looked knackered after 20 mins. 3) Balotelli - where do #LFC go from here? Awful night for him
Some observations from Anfield. 1) This is a very, very good Real Madrid side. Liverpool know how far they are behind
Right or wrong, that decision is bound to have a impact of Mario Balotelli's physiological state. Guarantees headlines, anyway.
Mario Balotelli swapped his shirt with Pepe as the players went down the tunnel for half-time. Doesn't reappear.

Brendan Rodgers is asked whether he fears Hurricane Gonzalo or Hurricane Cristiano more. He answers in Spanish
Steven Gerrard: "But it would've been a bigger regret if I had left the club I love - #LFC."
Steven Gerrard: "I've had a couple of offers to go to Real Madrid during my career ... It may be something I regret."
Gerrard: "I have huge confidence and belief that this team will get back to last season's level, it won't be very long."
Steven Gerrard: "I'm not sure Real will be coming here with any fear, but we hope to surprise & shock a few people."

Pistorius could be considered for release after 1/6 of his sentence. Could, in theory, be out after less than a year
If, and it's a big if, Oscar Pistorius does serve all 5 years of his sentence he will still only be 32 when he leaves prison.
Remember - 5 year sentence means he could be free after not much more than 2 years. #OscarPistorius

Incredible climax at Loftus Rd but vital victory for #LFC. Defensively they are all over the place, but important to find a way to win
Southampton. Bloody hell. Incredible result. Again. Also an incredibly worrying one for Sunderland and for Gus Poyet
Coming up, I've been speaking to David Moyes in his 1st broadcast interview since his sacking from Man Utd. Across BBC outlets shortly
