After conceding three late goals to lose a 2-0 lead to QPR in midweek, Liverpool fans’ frustrations and fury was tested once again on Saturday afternoon with a 2-1 defeat at home to Wigan Athletic.
The Reds crumbled to the Latics with a dreary performance in front of the Kop, despite a fine finish and combination play from Luis Suarez and Steven Gerrard for the Uruguayan’s, and Liverpool’s, only goal of the game.
The result is Liverpool’s 5th defeat in their last six league games, and second home league defeat this season. It leaves Kenny Dalglish’s side some 13 points off the fourth Champions League season and a league season that has well and truly fizzled out.
There were many groans of disgruntled supporters at Anfield at the full-time whistle and the aftermath has crept over into our own Liverpool FC forums. Here’s just a selection of what fans have been saying post-match. You can join in with the debates here.
“Getting beyond a joke. Say what you will about winning a cup, 5 losses in the league in 6 is just a joke.” BrianLfc10
“We are a poor team full of sub standard players. Anything else is just denial. You get what you deserve in this league. Our form is now officially relegation standard since Christmas. This is not acceptable by any standard.Sort it out Kenny.” Anfield 07
“All in all, it’s been pretty damn ridiculous now. A really striking thing was how quickly we lost control of the game after they scored the second goal. Where was the chemistry? Passes going awry and players being out of position. It was just sloppy.” SABcarra
“Roy had a woeful time at Anfield, the lowest points in his tenure were home defeats to Wolves and Blackpool. This Wigan side i think (not based on today but generally) is worse than both those sides.” sami
“Newcastle next ? well, who cares anyway…” lehunt
“Odd that Skrtel aside our three best players are youngsters who are trying to get into the side, you can add Kelly to that list who has been brilliant until he got injured.” mattyhurst
