Jamie Carragher had this to say about Liverpool’s 6-1 defeat at Stoke today.
Agree with him?
The Liverpool result today at Stoke is unacceptable for all concerned but it wasn’t the 6-1 score line at the end but more the 5-0 at ht. I haven’t seen any of the action but when hearing the score come through in the studio today after the first 45 mins there was a look of disbelief from all around. You have freak results in football I remember Man United at home to Man City a few seasons ago, to be fair to them though they had a man sent off & conceded 2/3 goals late on while chasing the game. Also it was Stoke who were the opposition not one of the Champions League teams, there was no sending off and it wasn’t a team of young kids you might use at the end of a season, just an awful first half for the team that will take some getting over.
Liverpool had defensive problems last season that eventually cost us the title and our record defensively this season is still not great but, the goalkeeper was in line today to win the golden glove award for most clean sheets today which shows some improvement. After today though it’s evident for all to see there is problems at both ends of the field that will hopefully be rectified in some way this summer. The only consolation was Stevie Gerrard getting a goal in his last game but he will not have wanted to go out like that especially after last weeks result against Crystal Palace.
