After every game Liverpool lose, or even draw, fans will look for someone to blame.
Players, management, referees, luck and owners could be in the firing line – but in reality there could be hundreds of varying reasons that we fail to win.
They could be obvious, like not getting a penalty, or more complicated, like a tired player struggling to find form after a busy Christmas.
The truth is, if the issues were obvious, they’d be immediately fixed – although in Liverpool’s case – this is perhaps too kind considering we’ve known Sadio Mane would be away at the AFCON since the minute we signed him…
This fan, speaking to our friends at Red Men TV last night following the 1-0 loss to Southampton – has put together a fairly articulate argument.
It’s about spending, and how our rivals’ managers buy the players they want to solve problems. At Liverpool, we’ve missed out on Julian Draxler, Christian Pulisic and Julian Brandt this January and have looked totally spent in both attack and defence.
