Liverpool legend John Aldridge isn’t ever scared of expressing his opinion, he shoots from the hip and gives his honest views.
Tweeting during the horrific 7-2 defeat to Aston Villa last night, the former Ireland international labelled the Reds’ performance as ’embarrassing.’
Going a little further, Aldo said it was the worst defensive performance he’s ever seen in his lifetime, and there are no excuses for such a woeful showing.
Take a look at his tweet below:

While we can appreciate this was written in the heat of the moment, we are inclined to agree with what Aldo said about the Reds’ performance.
Never have we seen a team cut through ours like a hot knife as if we’re butter – it was unbelievable and heads were gone all over the pitch.
Only Mo Salah, Diogo Jota and Andy Robertson can come out of that shambles of a game with their heads held high – they were a glimmer in a dark pit of a performance.
But there aren’t any real positives to take from a 7-2 loss to Villa – it’s time for the players to bounce back in a big way for the fans, for Jurgen Klopp and for themselves.
