“It’s so frustrating watching us!” – Fans react to Liverpool’s 1-1 draw with Newcastle

Liverpool failed to bounce back from their disappointing stalemate at Spartak Moscow as they were held to another 1-1 draw by Newcastle.

Newcastle 1-1 Liverpool

Premier League, St James’ Park
October 1, 2017

Goals: Joselu 36′; Coutinho 30′

Mohamed Salah had early opportunities to open the scoring for the Reds before Dejan Lovren was gifted an excellent opportunity to poke in from five yards out as the ball ricocheted off the post.

Philippe Coutinho broke the deadlock after half an hour however, with a sensational long-distance curler from outside the area.

But Liverpool’s lead didn’t last long as former Reds midfielder Jonjo Shelvey split the defence to play in Joselu.

It was a frustrating second half as Newcastle posed a bigger threat, but Roberto Firmino and Dominic Solanke were sent on in a hopeful attempt to change things from Jurgen Klopp.

Liverpool couldn’t come up with the answers, though, and they had to settle for a disappointing 1-1 draw.

Here are all the reactions from Liverpool fans on social media throughout the match.


Fans were pleased to see Sturridge start, though they were surprised Robertson wasn’t in the squad…

“Robertson not even in the squad, man of the match in his only full game not considered since then, did Klopp want him at Liverpool or was it someone else’s decision to get him from Hull.”

Joseph Wilkie on Facebook.


As Liverpool wasted chances in the first half, fans became frustrated…

“I mean if that doesn’t go in…what else can we do? We have been so unlucky…flashbacks to the woodwork season.”

But Coutinho’s goal was celebrated greatly…

“Coutinho takes a quick look at This is Anfield on his phone, “Is Coutinho playing today?” Boom!”

Der Kaiser on the forums.


It was short-lived though as Liverpool conceded shortly afterwards…


And as the second half dragged on, fans called for substitutions…

“Please end Sturridge’s misery of a performance. He looks like he didn’t pass the fitness test. Honestly, I can’t watch him remain a passenger anymore.”

Igniz on the forums.

“Mane needs to be hooked and Coutinho pushed up.”

John B on the forums.


And after another frustrating performance, fans weren’t happy…

“Wasted opportunities. I’m worried about a top-four finish.”

Ahmed Karim Achillah on Facebook.

“Everyone speaks about our defence. Yes, it’s a problem but we can’t score goals and that’s becoming a big problem too.”

Michael Kyriacou on Facebook.

“Manchester United next. Oh dear…”

“Average team with average aspirations and I’m sick of it.”
