“It’s beyond laughable now” – Fans react to Liverpool’s FA Cup exit against Wolves

Liverpool went crashing out of the FA Cup following a hugely disappointing 2-1 defeat against Wolverhampton Wanderers in the fourth round on Saturday.

Liverpool 1-2 Wolves

FA Cup fourth round, Anfield
January 28, 2017

Goals: Stearman 1′, Weimann 41′, Origi 86′

There were a few surprise additions in the squad as Connor Randall and Harry Wilson were given the nod ahead of Sheyi Ojo and Trent Alexander-Arnold.

However, the new-look back four were exploited within a minute of the game getting underway when Richard Stearman netted Wolves‘ opener, leaving Anfield stunned.

Things went from bad to worse when Andreas Weimann doubled Wolves‘ lead shortly before the half-time break after an awful opening 45 minutes from the Reds.

Divock Origi scored a consolation goal for Liverpool in the 86th minute but it was too late and it was a game to forget as the Reds went crashing out of the second cup competition in three days.

Here’s how supporters reacted to Liverpool’s 2-1 defeat at home to Wolves in Saturday afternoon’s FA Cup fourth round clash.


Anfield was shocked when Stearman scored for Wolves in the first minute…

“I’m speechless watching this … Conceived in a minute!” – Peijal Mohd Noor on Facebook.

“There’s only one solution to get us back on track, we must locate Bobbys pony tail and reattach it” – Topper_92 on the forums.


Connor Randall’s performance did not impress supporters either…


And fans were missing Sadio Mane once again…


Origi’s goal provided a brief moment of hope but there was despair at full-time as Liverpool failed to mount a comeback and paid the price…

“It’s almost like the players wants to show Klopp that they’re in desperate need of new fresh players. This is comedy” – PJ POP on the forums.

” I like the theory…..let’s get knocked out of all the cups, that way we won’t have any fixture congestion so we won’t have to buy any reinforcements! Flawless idea ??” – Clive Pullen on Facebook.

“One of the worst months of watching Liverpool that I can remember. Certainly since the days of Hodgson and the last days of Rodgers.” – Alex Williams on Facebook.
