It proved a frustrating afternoon for the Liverpool fans propping up the bar as they watched their side draw O-O with Plymouth on the Transfer Tavern TV, setting up an unwelcome third-round replay deep down the south coast.
Manager Jurgen Klopp opted to field one of the youngest Reds side in recent memory against the Pilgrims at Anfield and it rarely looked like working on a frustrating day on Merseyside.
Still, one of the feel-good factors of the day was the return of defender Joe Gomez after almost a year out of action with a serious ligament injury.
Signed by Brendan Rodgers in the summer of 2015, the 19-year-old’s return was a big boost for the Kop faithful, though reports from the Daily Mail claim he could soon be on the move.
Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe has reportedly identified the former Charlton man as a potential replacement for Nathan Ake, who was recently recalled by parent club Chelsea.
Gomez, along with teammate Mamadou Sakho, are understood to have been identified as targets by the Cherries, with the latter having been frozen out by Anfield chief Klopp.
However, the report claims Liverpool would prefer to sell the Frenchman on a permanent basis as interest across Europe swells in him.
