Our resident Liverpool fans drinking in the Football Transfer Tavern this evening are wondering whether the end of the Reds’ season could have gone any worse.
Bidding an emotional goodbye to one of their greatest ever players in Steven Gerrard while not even being able to register a win in both his penultimate and final games for the Reds, not to mention Raheem Sterling gate has meant that Liverpool fans are going into the summer with frowns as wide as the Mersey Tunnels.
The thumping 6-1 defeat away to Stoke City at the Britannia Stadium on the final day was a game too far for the Reds whose away support started to turn on the current manager Brendan Rodgers.
Earlier in the season, some Reds supporters urged fellow Kopites to keep faith in Rodgers, reminding them that he had driven Liverpool to an unlikely tilt at the title last season only to finish second.
However, fast forward to the end of this season however and when taking into account that lacklustre FA Cup semi-final defeat to Aston Villa, it seems like Rodgers’ star is falling dramatically.
