“Kid is one hell of a player,” “Was expecting at least a goal” – Fans react to Bury 0-0 Liverpool

Liverpool failed to find a breakthrough against a spirited Bury outfit as they played out a 0-0 draw, but fans remained optimistic over the showing of one particular youngster.

The Reds’ third pre-season outing failed to reap its rewards on the scoreboard but their League Two opponents provided yet another stage for Jurgen Klopp‘s youngsters to impress and his senior charges to gear up for the season opener.

A poor opening half saw Liverpool’s attack struggle to effectively link up, and while sweeping changes at half-time saw an increase in tempo, a breakthrough failed to arrive at Gigg Lane.

Here is how supporters reacted to Liverpool’s goalless draw on Twitter and our forums.


In a quiet opening period, Curtis Jones continued to impress and look at home within the senior setup…

Curtis Jones also looking very handy so far in pre-season. Could definitely be one to watch.”

Divock Origi on the other hand, didn’t impress…


There were mixed reactions to the performance and result and the hope will be for improvements in future games.

“A good run-out for the players, a magnified training session. But credit to Bury for defending well all through the match.”

Hope in Your Heart on the forums.

“I wouldn’t call it dull it was a good run out for our new signings and younger players; also Lallana looked great and full of energy. It would have been nice to have got a couple of goals but it wasn’t to be. Overall though there was some great link-up play and we created some fine chances and it gives us reason to be excited for the new season #YNWA”
