Barely three seasons ago, liverpool FC were the all conquering team of Europe and became the all conquering team of England only a season ago but have now had to rely on the goal scoring exploits of their GOALKEEPER to rescue their hopes of playing in Europe next season.
What happened? Why has a team with such talent and technically able players slumped to such low levels within such a short period.?
When Virgil Vandyke became indisposed through injury, there was ample time for a capable replacement to be sought during the January transfer window but that never materialised. Again, Matip and Joe Gomez who might have held the fort in his absence have been unavailable for long spells of the season.
Diogo Jota has been a fantastic addition but even he has had to endure a few weeks on the sidelines due to injury.
One can easily attribute the unfortunate season the liverpool faithful has had to endure to the injuries suffered by some core members of the all conquering team of Europe and England. However, a huge team like liverpool has no excuse, whatsoever, not to have enough capable replacements for it's first team at all times because that's the difference between a big club and a not so big club.
If the status quo remains, Liverpool may fall to the middle rungs of the league table and remain there for a while.
Liverpool FC, sit up!
