[Video Goals] Liverpool 1-2 Wolves: Klopp Crisis As Reds Crash Out Of FA Cup

By on January 28, 2017

Liverpool’s week went from bad to worse after crashing out of the FA Cup thanks to a 2-1 defeat to Wolverhampton Wanderers at Anfield this afternoon.

The visitors got off to the perfect start as Richard Stearman ghosted in at the far post to head past Loris Karius from a Helder Costa free-kick to give Wolves the lead inside the opening minute.

The Championship side then cut through Liverpool’s defence with a swift counter-attack as Costa fed Any Weimann who rounded Karius before tapping in to an empty net for 2-0 just before half time.

The Reds got themselves back in the game when Divock Origi slammed home from close range at the far post to make it 2-1 in the 86th minute following a clever header from Daniel Sturridge.

However, Liverpool couldn’t find the equaliser so Wolves progress to the fifth round of the FA Cup while Klopp’s side crash out just days after losing to Southampton in the semi final of the EFL Cup.

    I read somewhere that Klopp gets £220,000 per week! That was about our fifth shocking display in a row, he keeps playing failing players, our defence is garbage, our attack is powder-puff, we’ve got no DM, we have no natural width and no keeper we can rely on to come out for a high ball. The season is now over, we’ll be overtaken by United and City within a week and then we can try to remain above the likes of Everton for the rest of the season. I hope Klopp gives his last month’s pay to a charity!
    Can he ever field a team that doesn’t include Lucas or Moreno? How long will he persevere with shockingly bad FBs, inept CBs and strikers who couldn’t hit a barn door from five feet? Will we EVER have a dominating CB or DM? Our problems are all long-standing and well-known yet Klopp fails to act on them. Seriously beginning to have my doubts about him as he’s not changing, we get the same problems week after week and there are no signs that he will spend money. Only person happy at LFC is the guy who keeps his eye on the finances. Made a nice profit last summer, on transfers, yet whilst the season is falling apart we spend not one penny. You couldn’t make it up. We rely far too much on Lallana, Coutinho and Firmino but what annoys me is that, when we don’t have any European football to worry about, he still finds it necessary to field weakened teams for half the games we’ve got left. Why? Hopefully, he will now have realised that we’ve only got about five players worthy of donning the shirt . . . and one of them is in Africa. Klopp needs to change tack or go, simple as that.
